The fact that the jackass wanted to fight with two of his players towards the end of last season should have been an indicator to Holmgren and Paddock that Idiot Stick lost control of the team. Just watch what happens when the full on mutiny begins and guys like Marshall, Bourdon, Lehtivuori, Gustafsson, etc..... all start ignoring him and tuning him out.

Agreed, it's going to get ugly in Adirondack. However, this mess falls clearly on Holmgren AND Paddock for even allowing this to get as far as it has and for continuing to defend a coach who just has zero ability and credibility when it comes to developing prospects.

Now is the perfect time for a guy like Tocchet to come in and change the culture and environment completely in Adirondack.
I'm sure he's making good money as an analyst in Philly (he's a regular on the Flyers' broadcasts). Doubt he has much interest in relocating to Adirondack and coaching in the AHL.
