Paul Maurice: Fired

Temporary Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher fired temporarily unemployed coach Paul Maurice this morning. The obvious question to be asked right now, "Why do this now?" Is it so that the new GM doesn't have to unsheathe his blade and cut Maurice loose on day one? Does that mean there is a new guy, or is this just another tentacle of the immense dysfunction of MLSE? Isn't everything around this team?

It's 12:30 EST right now. Fletcher is scheduled for a press conference at 3. There is already speculation that Cliff will have more to announce than just the firing at that time. Also, I'm already hearing all these ugly stories come out about Maurice and his dressing room. I'll have more after the press conference.

What rumours?!??!!

Oh yeah, I heard a doozy about the Kilger situation so in retrospect maybe rumours are not a good idea.

It's like when your friend breaks up with someone you liked. You then hear all the shit you never knew was there.

Ferguson--Maurice-- Whos next? Toronto is such a difficult market. to work in This recent house cleaning can't all be due to upper management, common. Anybody have any links as to who they have in mind? At least these guys got more time for the golf course and the tracks.
