"I want to thank Perry Pearn for his contribution to the Canadiens’ organization over the past three years. He remains a very knowledgeable coach with a strong work ethic and is a true professional. I offered Perry to remain with the organization in a different role,” said Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier.
throwing the women and children overboard... further sign of some majestic leadership from this bunch of clowns.
how does Pearn, who Martin knows like the back of his hand, and who he personally brought in, all-of-a-sudden become not good enough in his role?
Cue the comments about how critiquing this move is just bashing management for bashing's sake, and how pearn probably deserved to be fired as witnessed by the PK/PP/Bench problems :
about the only thing that wouldn't make this reek like a desperation scapegoat move, is if Pearn had to leave for personal and/or better opportunity reasons, though not usually the case when a guy gets fired.
