Good Luck Jamie...

I watched him at practices a few times at HSC, he seemed to have a great work ethic and got the attention of the guys... I am sure he will catch on somewhere.

However I think the writing was on the wall on this one, believe we all noticed
the improvement when DS & Bernie got the guys going in a more positive direction!

I also believe it will be nice to finally have a team in place that can actually work
on chemistry and knowing as well as trusting teamates to be where they should be!
This applies to the whole team.

We have looked disjointed on the pp for a long time. Just hope our coaches set a stable pp1 & pp2 setup and the guys can develope within this structure. I think this is huge key, keeping line stability is something Sutter was better at than most of our previous coaches! This in itself should help our new PP coach as much as anything he could come up with. imho...

Good move.

Getting rid of him at any other juncture during the season aside from when they fired Murray would have been bad.



Also, I think the guys knew about it. I remember when they interviewed Mitchell after they won he said, "We got a lot of people fired with the way we played."

Far as I know Murray was the only one officially fired...........

Maybe the players read the riding on the wall as well.

1. His job will be filled by someone else, this isn't like Joe Schmoe losing his job. This is a coaching carousel, someone else who was out of work will now be employed.

2. Sports is a results oriented business, his job was to run the Kings PP and offensive scheme. The Kings PP was terrible and they finished 29th in offense. The results simply weren't there. And much like I said with Penner and Stoll, you have to look at the whole body of work and not just the final 20 games when judging players and coaches.

3. He wasn't fired, the Kings chose not to re-new his contract.

It sucks for him personally, but if any of us achieved similar results in our jobs we would be fired too. There is no coaching union to save him for his poor performance.

I don't think anyone here is really arguing against him being let go, just the celebratory/crass reaction of some here.

It doesn't appear Nicholls will be back (at least not in a full time role). It'll be a Darryl Sutter hire.

Again, you are missing my point.

My point is...that people here are celebrating someone losing their job. It's distasteful. That's all I am saying.

I think I have repeated myself enough, if you guys still don't get it, nothing I can do.

This.

Apparently what I wrote wasn't getting through. You phrased it much better.

I would imagine that Kompon feels quite fotrunate to have survived the housecleaning in December.

He got 6 more months of employment and a Stanley Cup ring out of it.

I don't think anyone expected him to remain on the coaching staff when Murray was let go.

Pfft. If we traded for Scott Gomez and signed him to a 6 year extension, every single person here would be celebrating once that contract expired, assuming we don't re-sign him afterward. Nobody would be going "that's sad that we aren't signing him, now he is out of a job, nobody should be happy about that." This is a ding dong the witch is dead moment for Kings fans. Kompon's and his family aren't going to starve... He will be hired instantly by someone else.

Sutter's assistants in San Jose were Rich Preston and Lorne Molleken. I don't think he'll be hiring either one to be one of his assistants. Preston is the GM and Head Coach of the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL. Lorne Molleken is the GM and Head Coach of the Saskatoon Blades, http://saskatoonblades.com/lornebio.

Development Coach with the Sharks, similar to what Nelson Emerson does for the Kings.

I've always had affinity towards Rick Tocchet and would love to see him behind the bench. I don't know how much credit he deserves for Stamkos' development, but it seems like his game took off under Tocchet's tutelage.

He wasn't fired, his contract is over and he's not being offered another one. Considering the performance of the powerplay over the course of his tenure, the only surprise to anyone is why he wasn't actually fired.
