I googled "gallant fired" and it came up with tons of stories of when the Panthers literally left him on a curb. Good times.

The official team line is this was because they didn't like his job performance.

Vegas did just finish a four game losing streak. That losing streak followed a four game win streak.

Are you trying to tell Vegas how to gamble?

Come on, Vegas. You know better than that. Don't just assume things will keep evening out.

https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-ne ... billboards

Edmonton Oilers fans left sour by the team’s recent matchup with the Calgary Flames will soon face roadside reminders of the loss when billboards featuring Matthew Tkachuk pop up in Alberta’s capital city. One Flames fan started a campaign to plaster Tkachuk’s face on billboards in Edmonton after Oilers forward Zack Kassian pummelled Tkachuk, in response to the pesky Flames forward laying a series of hard hits on the much bigger opponent in Saturday’s Battle of Alberta.

Mohamed Elsaghir got the idea for billboards after seeing the wrath directed at Tkachuk from Oilers players and fans alike. But he never expected to hit — and then far exceed — the $2,500 goal he set for the GoFundMe campaign.

“All I was expecting was maybe a couple retweets and some laughs and that was it. But it got really big really fast,” Elsaghir said.

The fundraiser caught the eye of radio station CJAY92, which is now co-ordinating the billboard effort. The billboards should be up in time for the marquee rematch on Jan. 29 — the game when Kassian is to return from a two-game suspension handed down by the league for pummelling Tkachuk, who refused to drop his gloves.

Maybe Gallant is a mean coach and Vegas found out that he called someone an asshole back in 1988 and had no choice but to fire him.

The Detroit paper mentions Detroit as a destination for Gallant. He and Stevie are pals. Makes sense. I guess we’re stuck with Bowness. :)

Yeap, but Laviolette is still available and Claude Julien will be soon.

Maybe they're waiting for Bowness to lose some games and not be the greatest coach in Stars history win-percentage wise anymore.

Hats off to the geniuses who came up with this monstrosity. Their third already was a master piece of ugliness, they managed to do even worse. 80's Canucks 2.0 are back, the mountain in the crest has already started to cry.

Are the hoodies actually part of the jersey? That would be awesome.

And here's the Kings' one, coming fresh out from the toilet bowl. We fully understand Kopitar's huge disappointment.

David Backes has been put on waivers by the Bruins. Another player left behind by the game.

We should claim him. Our team is too fast and the glass behind the goals at AAC hasn’t been punished enough.

This is the real problem to me. When you apologize to the online SJW mob, they beat you. I don't think what he did was that bad. He was freaking joking. I'm no Trump supporter, but I freaking despise SJW/PC zealots.

Eh, sex talking about a co-worker when you don't know if they find it funny is a problem, especially in a business like this where women have had a damn hard time breaking in solely because of their talent when most of the jobs women were given in sports media were due to their hotness.

I thought she was a close friend of his family. So, I figured there was some inside jokeness to it. But, maybe I'm wrong.

Yeah, but even if there was an inside joke that all of the principals would laugh off, it ceases to be an inside joke when you say it on a widely available public medium. And as Troy points out, when you are talking about a co-worker, that amps the scrutiny up even more.
