I just think thats such a dumb reason to fire somebody, maybe this team was to used to success.

It was a dumb reason, and hindsight tells us now he really wasn't all that bad. But the optics were not good, and the fans were incensed we lost that game, and management acted swiftly on it. Higgins and Campbell had put a pretty good team together, won a cup in 2003, and left most of the quality pieces there for DM to ride it to another championship in 2005 before letting it all unravel under Rick LeLacheur and Maciocia. Higgins had a studious look about him, and many may have misinterpreted that as a weakness. I always thought he got the raw end of the stick. If that's the case, Mark Trestman should have been fired a long time ago.
