Death to the Undertaker....The all purpose Fire McPhee thread





His time is over. Time for him to be buried in hell in a cell just like his namesake will be at Wrestlemania.



Discuss.

Way too many years over due. Only thing worse would be Button, McGuire, or Milbury.

Forget purgatory, we'd be in the deepest recesses of hell if one those idiots became GM

He was the only guy I could think of but then again his drafting acumen was horrendous...he left the Canucks prospects pool empty when he was fired.

The more I think about it, he would. He wouldn't keep some of these guys after Tampa series. The media interviews would be entertaining and it would take him of NBC. He would have something other Caps GMs have never had, a SC ring.

I am still in shock how quickly this team has fallen. The window has closed. The fun is gone.

Alot of these guys can still work into their prime under a better situation though.

Bob McKenzie.

Hes already a insider, I can't imagine TSN pays him much anyways.

Imagine this though... Ducks hire him or the Leafs do.

Sure, why not. He hasn't really had any decent drafts outside of the first round, the team has no identity or cohesion, and his trades have been hit or miss. He was given ample time to prove himself but I'm ready to move on.

I've been one of the loudest fire McPhee guys and still am but I am grateful for his hard work and the assets he has accumulated.

Ultimately: Win the Stanley Cup or go home.

Now, if we want out of Purgatory we fans better get some god-like candidates for Ted to bring in. He doesn't know about ice hockey.

As long as we keep his scouting team... amateur scouting team that is.

Unlikely. It doesn't usually work that way. Ross Mahoney has been great, though.

He built our playoff team last summer. If we miss the playoffs, no excuses, he needs to go. It was a new approach but it looks to have tanked. He should have done his coaching change before building his playoff count your chickens before they hatch roster.

If he did expect a thin deadline perhaps that needs to be recognized of having a good pulse of the market, but despite moving Brooks to C full time, adding Vokoun, our C and G play are just crushing this team. He could have realized there was a reason Laich was not a C before inking him to be a fulltime C. And he deviated from his own plan to use the young goalies he drafted and groomed all those years. That had shown enough to move Varly, easily his best playoff goalie of the past 3 years.

We can only hope that Ted hires a consultant to assist him in evaluating George at years end. Maybe we need to send him emails, tweet new GM choices. Embrace the info age and spam his blog. Send him CD's en masse. Just write your GM choice on the CD with your sharpie.

I bet the Caps plummet graphed looks like a AOL stock price chart heh. Familiar territory for Ted I suppose.

He should have be fired with Bruce after the Tampa series. The way he's f**ked this season is just more evidence of that.
