Multiple twitter media types are reporting that Randy Carlyle has been fired as coach of the Ducks and Bruce Boudreau has been hired as replacement. At this point, I think that puts a stop to the Bobby Ryan rumors, for now. Have to give these guys all a chance under a new coaching strategy.

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.
