That was quick.
As speculated, Blues coach Mike Kitchen is out and ex-LA Kings coach Andy Murray is in.
Murray is an interesting choice. He’s an up-tempo kind of coach and the Blues are very much a slow, old-school kind of team (I sometimes feel like they’re still trying to clear the front of the net for an Al MacInnis cannon blast). It’s pretty much a given they’re going to break the team into parts for other teams who are playoff bound and you have to wonder if the plan is to go younger (which they didn’t do this off-season) and faster under Murray.
Murray is probably hoping next season’s Blues are a lot healthier, too.
