MacLean has been getting a strong dose of reality check these last few years.
Such a fall from grace. A real shame he ended up being a jerk.
Of course this could quickly go the other way if he ends up as a HC somewhere.
Maclean and Boucher together would be worth the price of adm no?
Curious on why you say he ended up being a jerk.
Just a feeling I got from watching him near the end.
Him calling out the roster being inadequate to play the style of hockey he wanted was especially egregious.
Well, the same could be said for the team this year, except Dorian went out and picked up several players that would fit perfectly into his system after consultation.
I won't defend MacLean as I don't know much about him behind the scenes, but this isn't really a damning statement from coach.
It is when it is done publicly I'd say.
Boucher never publicly complained about the players he had not being good enough.
MacLean definitely gave me the impression that he thought management was holding him back and that he was throwing them under the bus in press conferences is why I have that impression.
True, and while I don't condone it. I think it's ok if the man comes out with an honest opinion after being fired.
It's nice as a fan to get a varied perspective.
But him coming out after a loss and blaming management reflects rather poorly on him.
And now it looks like he was essentially fired from Anaheim. Doesn't look good.
I agree, he clearly was upset. In general I enjoy personalities in Sports, but I also have no interest in having him back with our team in any capacity at this point
I don't mind what he said. No one in this city other than fans call out management so someone's gotta do it
Maclean went from friendly walrus to evil dictator walrus. And it didn't go over well
I don't anyone disagreed with his assessment of the team.
The problem was how he chose to vent.
found this article on Maclean, Murray, Sens, losing the room ... and ultimately hiring Cameron
Another one Maclean .. leaving , some player comments
Likely there are other stories.. I would not conclude he was a jerk based on these stories alone. Some may not like the "afraid" comment I guess.
You gotta be kidding me with this crap.
At this point, i hope the Pens sweep the Preds just so hockey can be done with. Ready for the offseason.
Oh good things can happen.
Nashville with a quick pair up 2-1.
There's way too much yellow in the final...
3-1. Love it.
Goals in the last minute of the period are either fun, or soul crushing. For me this one is the former.
Hopefully this wakes up Pittsburgh. They are bound to have a dominant game.
Preds have pulled away. 4-1.
Pitts has been outplayed every period in the series aside from period 1 of game 1. They look terrible.
Watching Nashvilles defense avoid getting pinned down is a treat. They force turnovers and rarely ever get caught chasing.
We really do need to improve our 2nd pairing.
Wow. Crosby actually got a penalty.
