Maurice Next To Go

Well, look at me.  Getting to break all the real news today.  If I was a guy who forced the infirm to pay me a few bucks for every rumor I made up, I’d say this was another example of those famous “dominoes” falling.

Carolina Hurricanes

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has relieved Paul Maurice of his duties as head coach. The team will announce a new head coach later today.

The Carolina Hurricanes announce Bruce Boudreau as their new coach.

Three years later, the Carolina Hurricanes announce Paul Maurice as their new coach.

As of 4 minutes ago, the Raleigh paper is saying the new coach will be introduced at a press conference later today.  I would not deny it being Kirk Muller, but nothing is set in case hardened fudge let alone concrete at this time.

“I wonder if the Ducks and Blue Jackets are going to can their coaches next.”

I would laugh my ass off if Crylyle got fired next but I hope he doesn’t and has to put up with that mess of a one-line hockey team for the entire season. As far as Arniel in Columbus, meh. A shitty hockey team in a city with a shitty college football team.

I feel most sorry for Cam Ward. I think he’s better than his stats and wins.

I feel sorry for Patrick Eaves’ jaw/ear.  The guy finally gets to play—still not sure why he was a healthy scratch for five consecutive games—and gets a significant injury.

Carolina is just a terrible team.  No coach in the world can help them.
