Warhippy Posted January 20, 2016 Share Posted January 20, 2016 3 minutes ago, WHL rocks said: I'm sure I won't need to let you guys know, I think you guys will let me know IF Cooper gets fired at end of season. Comparing Canucks hiring Torts to Tampa extending Cooper makes absolutely Zero sense. None whatsoever. Torts was a disaster, he was fired after 1 season. Cooper signed an extension after being very successful with the team. If Y had the slightest thought of firing him there's no way he extends his contract now, it's not like he extended him before the season started, he did it just before Xmas. Droin had already asked for a trade by then and Stamkos situation was the same that day as it is today. St Louis trade was a steal by Steve Y. He would do that all over again, St Louis was done as a hockey player. Of course coaches get fired, Bowman got fired. But in this case there is no evidence to make such claims, evidence points to the opposite. Actually, comparing Cooper to Torts is VERY apt. Torts at the years end, he's our guy. A week later fired. how about Carter Richards? They're Flyers for life. Rick Nash? He's not going anywhere. St Louis? We haven't entertained any talks about St Louis. Burke (endlessly) he's my guy he's not going anywhere...only to see someone fired. Again, very apt. If Y had the slightest thought that he was about to lose 2 of the most dynamic young offensive players in the game based off of a coach, he'd fire his arse yesterday, if he doesn't than no matter what his playing days say there's very little rope left for him to hang himself with There's every possibility they mend fences, there's even more possibility they sign Stammer and a good shot that no matter what one of Drouin or Stamkos is gone. But at days end, a contract extension to a coach means about as much as Prusts "toughness" does to this team on a California road trip Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
