  1. Isn’t this the strangest thing? Pearn was on the ice for this morning’s practice. Then at 6:00 pm today, just before the game is to begin the announcement to fire him is made. Pierre Gauthier is supposed to hold a press conference in a few minutes so stay tuned…

  2. What was his responsibility … The PK or the PP ? Seems kind of strange way
    to shake things up…

  3. Shitty time to lose your job (but any time is a bad time really). It must have woke them all up considering how the game went. Maybe that first period they were in shock but then after the Weber goal it snapped them back.

    I still don’t have faith in Martin though but he must be breathing one hell of a sigh of relief!

  4. #31, I think we’ve been missing a pulse behind the bench and I hope Randy L, whom I know very little about, can provide that.
