NHL coaches on the firing line
The last 24 hours or so have seen 3 NHL coaches either step down or be fired. New York Rangers bench boss Glen Sather stepped down as coach to concentrate on his GM role, with assistant Tom Renney taking over the reigns. In a bit of a surprise move, the St Louis Blues fired their winningest coach, Joel Quenneville and replaced his with Mike Kitchen. Lastly the struggling Phoenix Coyotes continued to clean-up house by firing Bob Francis and replacing him with assistant Rick Bowness.
