  • Stars Fire Head Coach Jim Montgomery

    Jim Montgomery was fired earlier this morning:

    Nill said later Tuesday that he was informed of "a material act of unprofessional" over the weekend and launched an investigation. He added that the act by Montgomery did not involve any current or former players or staff members in the Stars organization, or any previous organizations Montgomery has been a part of.

    Nill confirmed that Montgomery’s dismissal was not linked in any way to the four-point plan of action for abusive behaviour announced by commissioner Gary Bettman on Monday. He added that the league was aware of the situation regarding Montgomery prior to Bettman's announcement. He added there was no criminal element to the decision either.

      So far they've said it's not abuse related, not criminal, and didn't involve any players or other staff. Which really has me scratching my head, because then what the heck can it be?

      And by all accounts, he was a player's coach and was running a good system. It definitely wasn't hockey related.

          Ah. Well alright then, mystery solved. Hopefully he gets his shit figured out and is back coaching in the league down the road.

            I mean, I'm still a bit curious to know exactly what happened. There must have been a pretty significant incident.
