But I thought everyone said that Botterill was a GM god and the only reason that Rutherford had any success?

I remember that too. Mostly at the old place.

The feeling for a while now around hockey circles was that Botterill was in over his head...

Trading away Conor Sherry was the final straw.

Well, he has only made 1 trade as GM and according to the guys on NHL show guys it was a consensus "Grand Slam" for him.

I remember when Maurice became the Whalers coach. He must have been 35 or so.

I've met Blash before and I know a lot of folks that know him...he's a good coach imo. I'm impressed that they're sticking by him after some mid-70s Capitals like seasons...I think it speaks a little bit to how tough it is to judge coaches just based on record and (general) nonsense like line combos...

n! - Mo was like 29 or 30 when he got the job in Hartford...one of the youngest ever.

I think Blashill is getting the benefit of the doubt from Yzerman. It's not like he's had a lot to work with in terms of the roster. Will be interesting to see how long that leash lasts though.

Did Pegula just now learn that they hired a failed soccer chairman as head coach?

The source is questionable to say the least, but this is a hell of a headline.

I came here to post the same thing! This article gives a few more details about how crazy the "New Rasputin" is. So, if Datsyuk has been his spiritual follower for 10 years... :scared:

Just three days after a former major junior hockey player alleged that he was forced to do cocaine in a bathroom as a rookie with the Kitchener Rangers in 2016, two former CHL players have launched a class-action lawsuit alleging that players aged 15 to 17 were, “routinely victims to hazing, bullying, physical and verbal harassment, physical assault, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.”

I’m sure mikey and Chairman meow could speak more knowledgeably about it, but to the best of my not firsthand knowledge or experience junior hockey very much has a frat boy mentality that is made worse by the majority of players being plucked away from their homes, parents, and structured upbringing at 15/16 years old. The dickheadedry becomes exponentially compounded and doesn’t get snuffed out by Canadian good ole boys like Bill Peters.
