Today's honorary ringers: Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca
You would think that the NHL's 2 newest head coaches would get the honor, but what these two old guys did was the funniest thing I've ever seen. 40 years removed from their rivalry and they still hate each other's guts. The CFL gets 3 seconds of coverage a year on ESPN. This bumped it up to 12 seconds. Those 2 fossils did more for the league than Anthony Calvillo ever did.
So two coaches got the ax on Monday. Bruce Boudreau's potty mouth was finally shown the door and replaced by ex super pest Dale Hunter. I think his message was played out after one too many early playoff exits. Ovy gets a fresh start with another no bullshit guy who loves to play his stars. Hope you're in shape Ovy because you're about to get 25-28 minutes a game.
The other casualty was Paul Maurice. Jim Rutherford finally realized that he had already hired Maurice once before. When this was brought to his attention, he quickly re-fired him and tapped our old buddy Kirk Muller. The PK'ists are very happy for Kirk. We look forward to the day he makes the Habs look bad for ever letting him go. Perhaps a conference final of Muller vs Boucher would do the trick.
Sorry about the missed morning bell yesterday morning. HF4 and I were in a group therapy session about that brutal loss on Saturday night. To blow a 3-1 lead and then have a botched call like that in OT was heartbreaking. Just when we were getting out of our funk, we learn that Pacioretty is suspended 3 games for the hit on Letang. Fucking shitballs. Perhaps a Californication road trip is just what the doctor ordered.
