Nope


New GM? Maybe, but McPhee just went upstairs above new guy.

Panic after a first-round exit and a tailspin early in the following season? Maybe.

(Looking into past) Went from Jack Adams nom in 2016 to fired by new Florida GM after a .500-ish start just 20-plus games into the following season?

Locker room unhappiness? Says something stupid to the wrong people?

While we may not know the reason that Gerard Gallant was fired from Las Vegas, the good news is that the steady leadership and practical decision making process of James Dolan sets him up for success with the Rangers.

The only rumor I heard was some kind of personality clash with management.

He got bumped in Florida because of management turnover.

So, he might be prickly? But, his track record is good. Both Florida and Vegas played well for him.

Gerard has no worries. If it turns into a gong show in NY he can always make an upward move to the Sabres

Always rated Gallant highly and understood why he was kicked out with both the Panthers (they're morons) and the Knights (new GM/went into a tailspin).

Unless that farking idiot Dolan gets involved (and he will), he'll do well on the Rangers.

Meanwhile, in Detroit, Stevie Y, still upset that Gallant allegedly used cocaine back in his playing days, keeps terrible coach Blashill even though he had several chances to do the right thing and hire a coach that will actually develop talent, instead of wasting it.

I never heard that bit about the cocaine, but it *was* the 80's and Bob Probert was his line mate. I recall at that time, my buddy's boss lived in the same apartment building as Probie (Riverfront Towers?), and he'd say "I don't believe he does coke...he's up every weekend at 6am waxing his boat!". Anyway, I am more than a bit bummed he isn't coaching Detroit.

I always loved Gallant's game. I always get #17 as my jersey when playing organized hockey as a tribute to him.
