I kinda called all those things too. Although after that Canadiens blowout at home in early December had passed without Jmac's job passing from under him, I started to doubt it. After the Boulton hat trick I figured he was safe till the off season although it was announced 4-5 days later after one final blowout in DC, that he had been fired.
Langenbrunner I prayed, but figured if he wasn't dealt in the offseason that he wasn't gonna waive.
I did call Parise leaving though. After the one year deal I knew it didn't look good. Others gave me valid reasons why it meant nothing. In the end though that one year deal to me said it all.
Not discounting your source by the way.
