I guess Foote has no more kids that needed to go through the system?

Sounds like another case of abuse?  He missed his son's WJC games because he had to coach his team and now he's being released.

Could just be high expectations.  They are 2pts below .500, in the 1st wildcard spot and are hosting the Memorial Cup.

Hopefully this doesn't give the Rockets a boost going into this weekend's games vs the Royals.  ::D

Man was he an awesome Dman for the Avs, I always looked forward to his shifts on the ice.

How tough would the guy have to be that tells Adam Foote “you’re fired”?

Coaching 16-19 year olds doesn't require a resume of being a tough former NHL player.  It requires patience and a connection to each kid and their goals.  In his defense the Rockets had (still have) a number of their major players hurt throughout the second half of the season.  The players will go to the wall for Mallette.  Let's see if he can get this team turned around in time for the playoffs and MC.
