He just spoke his mind and knew what he was talking about.

Craig Patrick could not stand it.

That's why Herb Brooks got canned. He spoke his mindm
Herb Brooks was never "canned". He was the teams interim coach only after Kevin Constantine was fired, and went back to his regular scouting gig the end of the season. In fact, Craig Patrick and the team wanted him to return, but Brooks wasn't interested in full-time coaching any longer preferring to remain rooted at home in Minnesota. Indeed a year later he turned down a huge offer to coach the Rangers.

Patrick and Brooks were basically best friends. Christ, Brooks is probably the one person he looked to for advice the most.
