I don't know that I completely agree with the move at this time of the year, but the Ice need something to get them motivated to win some games and get into the playoffs. Without Watson and McIlrath already, someone needs to step up and get a "W" for them. I've heard rumors on other boards that Gino Gasparini had something to do with it, but I don't know if that's true or not. I wish Coach Gendron the best of luck in his future endeavors. It's too bad it couldn't work out in Indiana, but maybe this will be the spark the Ice need to get back to winning.
Well, I've heard and seen its spun in both directions now....that Gendron is too much of a hard ass for kids this age, and that the Skjodt family is impossible to work for. Given the fact that Gendron's departure was preceded by the team president, Joe Hennesey's, departure, and the team GM, Josh Mervis', departure I am inclined to believe the later spin.
Either way, it is an unfortunate way to start the history of amateur hockey in Indianapolis.
BTW, Tristin Llewelyn is done for the year with a fractured orbital bone.
