That Lasted Long ...

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.

The ESPN interview of Barry is interesting. It's a shame, he sounds like he had the right idea, just a bad situation. I think he might do a good job coaching the Rangers...more demanding than Renney.
