You've gotta think this is a positive thing. I've posted in another thread that I've heard other NHL goalies (Quick and Smith, for example) rave about how their own goalie coach has helped change their game and make them better, and we've never heard squat about Meloche. I think he was a "country club" member from the earlier days that finally was squeezed out.
So far, so good (albeit small).
Here is the link:
Mentions that he is EXPECTED to resign this week, but will more than likely take a job as a scout. Also mentions Mike Bales from WBS as a possible replacement.
Mike Bales, 40, is the leading candidate to replace Meloche. Bales has spent the past two seasons as goaltending coach at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Penguins' AHL affiliate. He has worked closely with player-development coach Bill Guerin, who over the past year has emerged as a leading voice among Shero's hockey operations staff.
