NHL Off Season? Forget it

From Scott Morrison via Welland Tribune,

So this is the so-called off season?
Hardly. In the past week ...
- A general manager who got his team three wins away from winning the Stanley Cup gets fired.
- A coach who was told two months ago he would be back next season gets fired.
- Deposits on tickets for a franchise that doesn’t exist go through the roof.
- The future of a franchise remains in limbo while a quiet cold war between the prospective owner and the NHL builds and the team loses two of its best young players.
- A coach who had 43 wins last season gets demoted to assistant coach, his replacement a surprise but quality choice.
And so it goes ... where to begin?
