You can take Souray off the block - apparently he didn't like him in the least.

Sorry to read this, but not surprised.

I guess having your big boss send text messages to the media saying your job's not on the line doesn't count for much.

Totally off topic but about MacT.
Someone just told me this, I had no idea..

Did you know about this?

1984: Craig MacTavish leaves a nightclub intoxicated and kills a woman. He pleads guilty to vehicular homicide and spends a year in jail.

How did he only get 1 year?

he got one year, and had to do 2-3 years probation I believe...

Or was it he was released early, as I seem to recall hearing or reading he was supposed to serve 18-24 months or so...

This tragedy goes back a quarter century, so it may be worth reviewing the facts.

From Wiki on MacTavish:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_MacTavish

Manslaughter conviction

MacTavish missed the 1984–85 season after being convicted of vehicular homicide, having struck and killed a young woman while he was driving under the influence of alcohol.

MacTavish pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol in an accident the night of January 25, 1984 in Peabody, Massachusetts.

Kim Radley, 26, of West Newfield, Maine, died four days later of injuries sustained in the crash.

MacTavish spent a year in jail as punishment for this offence. While incarcerated, he watched most of the games that were televised.

After MacTavish was released from prison, the Bruins offered to let him out of his contract. MacTavish accepted.

Why not! He's good with the young guys and would be a good fit in Edmonton.
