Heat is on the old guard hockey guys in the NHL

Postby FLPensFan on Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:25 pm

Don Cherry was fired for his non-PC comments.

Bill Peters was fired/resigned for his racial comments, as well as physical abuse of players.

Ron Francis is coming under heavy fire now for having knowledge of Peters "style" in Carolina, and doing nothing about it....even extending his contract.

Mike Babcock was just fired.....but, it came out afterwards that his style rubbed people the wrong way in Toronto (the Marner thing). It came out over the weekend that Babcock was also a jerk in Detroit, and was verbally assaulting Franzen on the bench during playoff loss to Nashville, and later behind closed doors. (this is coming from Chelios on Spittin Chiclets podcast)

Ken Holland may be under fire because of the Babcock stuff in Detroit, because reportedly several veteran players went to Holland and he basically supported Babcock and threatened to trade players who had a problem with him.

Who's up next?

It's hard to say with the amount of emotional sissies around the league.

If Peters were still doing that, I get the controversy, but to force someone out for something that happened years ago is deplorable.

We have all said or done stupid things. I often wonder what the accusers in situations like this, have in their background.

Let he who without sin cast the first stone.
