So is Blues coach Mike Kitchen the next NHL coach to go? The St. Louis Post-Dispatch seems to think so.
I think the only reason Kitchen is still behind the bench is that the Blues didn’t pounce on Ken Hitchcock right after the Flyers let him go. You might recall Hitchcock actually signed with Columbus while the Flyers were firing him. I think he signed the Blue Jacket paperwork while he was packing up his office, even.
You also might recall that in Columbus, Ohio, NHL hockey is often bumped off the radio for high school sports.
