Hired to be Fired 2010-11
A compilation of the unlucky members of the NHL coaching and managerial fraternity, who find themselves outsourced in the 2010-11 season.
From the freshest of recruits, to the oldest in tooth of the ancient order of coaches they never know when the phone call or tap on the shoulder will come. Some survive through to the playoffs, others are gone before the season gets too far along.
We track the departed here.
December 28-- Calgary-- Darryl Sutter resigns as Flames GM, replaced by Jay Feaster as Acting GM
December 23-- New Jersey-- John MacLean is replaced as coach of the Devils, Jacques Lemaire is coaxed out of retirement to take over the team once again.
November 15-- New York Islanders-- The Islanders remove Scott Gordon as head coach, replacing him with AHL coach Jack Capuano
