The Leafs Do the Predictable
Our beloved Toronto Maple Leafs officially blamed Paul Maurice for the team's failings, firing the head coach today.
Though Maurice had a respectable above .500 record in the two years he coached the Leafs, his team missed the playoffs in both years. He failed to get the best out of the veterans and ultimately, he failed as a coach.
I'm not hurting about this, and it's less a shock than when the Leafs sacked John Ferguson Jr (and that wasn't much of a shock). It's sort of like: Who cares?
