Well that didn't last long. Back to the TV broadcasting where you belong.

Yea I thought he was finally making baby steps with the team after a very slow start.

Hard to believe I think I didn't read the link but he couldn't of had more than 16/17 games ...something like that. Not much time to really prove yourself in the first year.

Glad the Caps smacked em around though...sorry Olie, NOT!

I'm watching the Caps work over the Devils now, I think they said Rick Tocchet (gritty bastard) was gonna fill in as HC.

The CAPS are HOT and playing accordingly!

I think Melrose was 5-7-4 during this shortened tenure with the Lightning. 16 games is nowhere near enough time to make or break a coach. I guess Management didn't like Melrose as much as they thought...
