Wow. A Stanley Cup shocker.
And it’s not about the Stanley Cup.
It just happened on the same day as game seven.
Ottawa named Bryan Murray, current GM of the Mighty Ducks, as their new coach.
Pretty weird to go from being a GM to a coach under your own steam. But I guess there’s more stability in Ottawa. I’d be pretty nervous if I was Ottawa GM John Muckler, the guy who hired Murray. If things start going poorly again, the media and the fans are going to clamor for a new GM. And they’ll be a perfectly good, perfectly effective GM right there in the organization.
