Hahah, with the way Melrose talks about the Avs, he woulda been soiling himself at the thought of coaching the Avs

PL just has these strange ways. Yea, there were a lot of good candidates for the job, but he wanted to keep it internal. Jacques Cloutier, the longtime assistant coach actually got the original nod, but declined it. That in effect, led to Granato's hiring. Kinda weird considering Hartley originally hired Granato as his AC.

Hahah, what's next? Granato getting fired and Tocchet becoming the coach of the Avs
