Finally, after two years of begging pleading and anger from the fanbase, Chairman Mo has been deposed…again.
In his place comes Kirk Muller–who, unlike Chairman Mo, has a Cup ring and actual experience as a coach.
Like the first time, I’m thrilled about this. This org really needs to take a good long look at itself and really decide to make decisions that need to be made to bring it on a nightly basis–even if they don’t win a Cup or go super-deep in the playoffs every year, the fans in this area will reward a team that is actually TRYING to get shit done. They also appreciate accountability. Mo didn’t have it. Captain Kirk, OTOH, does.
Of course, given the “all of this has happened before, and it will happen again” nature of this organization, this does beg the question:
When will Chairman Mo come back like a chronic yeast infection?
I hope that question never gets answered.
Next game tomorrow at home against the Florida Panthers. Can’t wait to see how the team responds.
