Would certainly not complain. Get him and Rick Wilson and fire Fraser's ass.

Stars mailbag
Really depends on the coaches. If Curt Fraser is back the power play will look similar, but maybe tweaked slightly.

The penalty kill should look different and have more structure with a new assistant coach running that system. I think the Stars will also put more emphasis on actually battling in front of their own net.

On a similar note, I think you’ll also see the Stars properly play 2-on-1s defensively under Hitchcock.

Ruff was the reason behind the ill-advised slide and dive approach to breaking up odd-man rushes, and I think that should go out the window.

Heika's chat he mentioned Fraser could return in a reduced role and the Stars might go with four assistant coaches.

Man. I wonder what kind of dirt Fraser has on Nill.

He wrote some great songs for the Beach Boys.
