No real surprise here, although I think they could have been given another year to work with.

New owner, new management, no surprise.

It's a heartless business at times.

Lawton was caught in the cross fire of the old owners--couple of good building blocks in TB

This firing is hilarious. If it wasn't for Lawton, Stamkos would no long be a member of Tampa Bay.

But as stated this isn't a big surprise. Some teams that consistently finish at the bottom clean house. Other teams struggle to make that move.

He sure does. A guy that coaches Stamkos and Downie to the numbers they put up deserved a way better fate.

Tampa Bay is another ****show. There's no accountability, just idiots covering their ***** for their own mistakes.
