Staal Brothers: Coach Killers?

1) Of course our "Coach Killer" label is tongue-in cheek, we found it amusing that all 3 Staal brothers have had their coaches fired since the start of the season.

  • Eric Staal of the Hurricanes (Peter Laviolette), Replaced by former coach Paul Maurice

  • Jordan Staal of the Penguins (Michel Therrien), Replaced by Dan Bylsma

  • Marc Staal of the Rangers (Tom Renney), Replaced by John Tortorella

2) Another irony that others have written about; All 4 of the teams that went to Europe to start the season have new coaches as well. We wonder if Detroit's Mike Babcock will be a bit worried about going to Sweden to start the 09-10 season? ; )

  • Tampa Bay- Barry Melrose

  • Ottawa- Craig Hartsburg

  • NY- Tom Renney

  • Pittsburgh- Michel Therrian
