Well, everyone got what they wished for I suppose. We were just outside the playoff window and this moronic useless firing of our coach pretty much sealed the deal for the season and brought this team back to where it was 5 years ago. Terrible.
Long overdue. If Molson executes correctly we are in a situation to break out of the chasing-eighth groundhog day model.
