Off with their heads…

By , November 28, 2011 9:24 am

Two coaches were victims of firings today before many of us out west were even awake. The Washington Capitals have fired Bruce Boudreau, and the Carolina Hurricanes have axed Paul Maurice. Dale Hunter will take over coaching duties in Washington, while Kirk Muller will head things in Carolina. Maurice was the youngest coach in NHL history to coach 1000 NHL games. The Hurricanes, however, sit 2nd last in the NHL right now, after missing the playoffs two years in a row under Maurice. The Capitals are still in a good spot, but evidently are attempting to stop the bleeding before it gets too serious.

    Who’s next? Randy Carlyle doesn’t seem like a bad guess to me.

    Well when it is either your coach going or your face of the franchise superstar….

    No surprises here. Carlyle should be next. I agree on that. Perhaps Martin as well.

    I gotta think that Sutter is next. Feaster seems to think he has a playoff caliber team so you would have to think that if the Flames stay close to the bottom of the west for much longer then they will be making a coaching change. Add in that Sutter is not a Feaster guy and the likelihood of this happening probably increases. IMO.
