Dan Ladouceur out as Rock assistant

Team announced this afternoon. That Dan Ladouceur has been relieved of his coaching duties.  So using Ladoucuer as the fall guy. For the Rock 0-5 start. Well sure the Rock have given up the most goal in the league 68.

However, the problems run deeper in Toronto. Questionable goaltending, lack of scoring up front. Injuries to key players plus age. The GM has done little in the way to fix these issues going forward.  The coaching staff shares some of the blame as well.

Might be time to find a contempt GM. If Toronto plans to be competitive in the Eastern division going forward. Or the rebuild just might take that much longer.

Changes coming in Toronto? 0-3 with the loss tonight. Lovell’s seat has to be awful warm. Maybe hiring a real GM? Not the owner moonlighting as GM.
