There was, but it's not up yet I don't think. Don't know when it will be.

If that's true, no wonder they did so poorly with maclean.
He was an incompetent idiot of a coach, and each win, and accomplishment this team makes my shred of respect for him as a coach dissolves into almost nothing. He was the WORST coach I've EVER seen in the NHL. Any team that turns around into a championship caliber team within 2 weeks of a coaches dismissal means that coach sucks. Especially when we won the division the year before, and are in the cup finals the year after. And that's how we played a few weeks after he was gone. EXACTLY how we played. Like a championship team last year especially after Langenbrunner left, and got on the plane. I never wanna see him in Jersey coaching again. Let's be serious he wasn't that good of an assistant coach either. Our PP sucked for years with him. I will cheer for him if they honor the 95 cup team, and loved him as a player, but his incompetency coaching us has soured me with him. We're in the finals now so I forgive him, but damn was he an idiot.
