Caps fans weren’t the only Southeastern Division team with a change at the top on Monday, the Canes too, saw a shake up. Mike penned a brief goodbye note. Onward.
Anyone who has been following the Canes shouldn’t be surprised he’s gone, maybe just that it took this long.
I don’t know much about Kirk Muller, but every indication is that he’s a great hire. Jim Rutherford has made a living finding the right players and coaches at just the right time, and I’ll trust that he’s done it again.
So it’s an exciting day in Raleigh where a new era of Hurricanes hockey is starting. Thanks Coach Mo’ for your 920 games behind the bench but forgive me if I never want to see you there again. And here’s to Kirk Muller. May you be able to get Eric Staal’s head out of his own ass and lead our team back to the playoffs.”
