Subban is a bit of a flopper.

He's one of those coaches players can't take seriously. That's fine when the coach lets the players play however they want, but now that he's asking them to play a different style they don't particularly enjoy, they've tuned him out. There's no respect there.

That 24/7 series was eye opening and not in a good way for Boudreau.

Funny how some around here and on that other message board were all up in arms after his first season with the Caps because the Kings let him go (Monarchs), instead of promoting him.

The real Oilers showed up again in the 3rd tonight.

Also, no Mike Smith, or Mike Brown to Bob, is not as good as his numbers would lead one to believe. A product of the system.

3 - 1 Canucks

These CBC guys are really underrated when it comes to being horrible.

Oh I see what you did there. One of those "I am not saying your mother is a prostitute" out of nowhere. Yeah, he asked for a trade because he was unhappy with the Terry Murray's style of play.

You know he is a Defense first coach right? The Blues had exactly what Kings fans want. Speed/SKill plus a open speed system coach (Payne).

And they fired him.

I watched the Pitt game against the Blues. It was like watching a Mirror of the Kings. I swear it looked like the exact same team. The Pens could not get through on offense.

Couple lucky bounces DUE TO HARD WORK. BLues win.

The Pitt announcers were saying how boring the games was lol.

Correct. The Blues are where the Kings were before Murray. Hitchcock will be around for a few years, teach them defense and then move on. Murray has a 3 year shelf life, he's out of code.

Hitchcock's teams weren't defense only though. He's got a cup ring too. Dallas was 8th in offense when they won the cup.

I agree Hitch will be fired in about 3 to 4 years.

So when does Hiller switch to the mask featuring pictures of his teammates with paper bags over their heads? #Ducks
This made me laugh.

Who knows, So Cal may be Murray-less before the season ends if things don't change for both teams.

Hee-Haw! The dux lose 5-2.

Nasty swelling on Brookbank from being hit in the face with a puck.

Yep. Caps finally had the cajones to fire Boudreau. Crazy. And for another coach with a history of success in juniors. You taking notes, DL?

Two teams with coaching changes before us...argh.

When I see his name I always think of him eliminating Turgeon in the playoffs. Boudreau had lost the team and has failed to maximize the potential of quite a few of those guys. And I honestly think the interview on 24/7 with BBQ sauce on his face ruined his reputation.

Daryl Reaugh on Twitter re: Boudreau: "coaches can't go from teddy bear to grizzly bear with (the) same team and vice versa, and it's not wise to turn the franchise's mustang stallion into a docile trail pony."

Bingo.
