Wonder if this is something to do with the "hockey culture" fallout?

I read it as he did something that was going to leak out, especially with the meeting yesterday, and the Stars decided to get ahead of it.

Stars also promoted the AHL coach, Derek Laxdal, to the NHL staff. Gotta be a wild day in Frisco today!

So was it something done as a college coach? Can't be a recruiting violation.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Best guess. I'm going to wildly speculate with no basis at all that he got caught boning a season ticket sale rep or ice girl.

I would wager it was for his actual behavior toward players. He seems like a dick.

It doesn't seem like being a dick would be enough to get you fired for cause though. That's somewhat part of the job. Maybe not necessary, but maybe not that uncommon.

Another wild guess is domestic violence. Leagues these days don't even wait for dust to settle on that after generations of ignoring it.

On the hockey side of things, it'll be interesting to see if Bowness changes things up at all. The real shame for Benn and Seguin is they lose their primary excuse for poor production.

Yeah. I reckon it has to be something actually pretty serious. He was not on the block at all.

At least he got fired before he gets Polonium in his drink.

I also heard the Monty on Monty interview and I have to agree, they had no choice here.

I agree. I take that to mean this wasn't a player abuse situation.

Says nothing about abusive situations with other family members, employees, or even fellow coaches.

But I do think it has to be something very recent. He isn't going on the Ticket doing a joking interview last Wednesday if he knows the team is considering firing him, right?
