The Minnesota Wild have missed the playoffs. Again
In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday,
Leipold said he's working on a contract extension for general manager Chuck Fletcher
, who has one more year left on his original deal.
Heading into his first full season as Calgary's general manager last fall, Feaster thought the Flames had what it took to earn a playoff berth.
But on Tuesday, he found himself apologizing to fans for missing the post-season for a third straight year
The Toronto Maple Leafs are apologizing for yet another disappointing se
A letter to fans posted on the Leafs' website Monday asked for forgiveness after the team missed the playoffs for the seventh straight year.
"The Toronto Maple Leafs are a public trust with the greatest fans in the world," reads the letter signed by Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.
"We have fallen short of everyone's expectations, and for that we are sorry. We take full responsibility for how this team performs on the ice, and we make no excuses.
"The way this year ended was unacceptable. Results are the only measure of success in sports and the results speak for themselves."
Four other teams miss the playoffs, all for at least the second consecutive season, yet two of them hand out extensions while the other two don't fire the GMs.
