VEGAS (May 16, 2022) - Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon announced today, May 16, changes to the team's coaching staff: Pete DeBoer has been relieved of his coaching duties.

"We would like to thank Pete DeBoer for his commitment to the Vegas Golden Knights over the past three seasons," said Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon. "Since joining the organization, Pete and his staff have guided us through some of the most unique and challenging circumstances we've witnessed since our franchise entered the NHL.

I hear ya Paul. I would have told you privately but don’t think I can. Hopefully you’re not pissed at me for pointing the spelling out.

Now let’s hope the Wings draft well and we can get one or two more young players to have an impact next year.

Bet they pay trotz a kings ransom.

I would put an awful lot in MacCrimmon’s plate.  He built this roster.

What? Their good players were all banged up here or there. Watch them mop up the West along with COL next year.

I have to believe there was some philosophical differences between coach and GM. It seems really odd to fire a coach who had a pretty decent amount of success just because the team failed to make the playoffs in an injury filled season. That, or they really think Trotz will get them The Cup.
