Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Kelley at Sports Illustrated,
Melrose got fired because he didn’t know what he was doing.
He might think it was because his players didn’t like that he publically chastised them after the first two games of the season (in Europe no less) or that he resorted to his celebrated cold-shoulder approach when he walked out of the locker room and left them to practice on their own the day before a game just prior to his being dismissed, but that’s hardly the case.
He got fired because he didn’t do game-prep well, manage his players and bench effectively, and was regularly outcoached by opponents, many of whom knew what they were doing behind the bench and took advantage of the fact that Melrose did not have a clue.
