TAMPA, FLORIDA (TICKER) —In a stunning move, the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday fired head coach Barry Melrose.
Associate coach Rick Tocchet was named as Melrose’s replacement.
I said he wouldn't last the season, but I thought he would make it through Christmas. Oh well. Hopefully he won't take Barnaby's job back at ESPN.
Keep an eye out on BMR for a suicide watch ...
It is indeed official.
