    I don't get the timing. If he was this close to getting fired, why not fire him in the offseason and let the new coach run training camp? They've self sabotaged again.

    Because its not Hextall's team yet. My guess is that he's too busy doing infrastructure and the like to really get the front end figured out.

    Their goal is to make the playoffs at all costs. If they don't, Hextall's going to clean house.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Holmgren is the problem not Laviolette. I'm sure he will be back coaching in the NHL fairly soon.

    He'll get hired by whatever playoff team is underperforming and is sitting 18 points out at Christmas.

    After reading this, I have to concur:

    He's got Steinbrenner written all over him. Frankly, George prevented them from winning more Championships since the 3 of 4 in the late 90's, Early 2K years. If he'd have let Cashman do his Job, they could have won 6 or 8 of 10.

    Yeah, word was that Hextall's departure was supposed to happen after this season, and he decided to leave a year sooner because of stuff going on with both organizations

    They are chanting "fire Holmgren" over there at the game. I wonder how many of our guys will go to Philly once Hextall takes over.
