Generally speaking, the firing of a pro level coach or manager in any of the major sports is a big deal. Why was he fired? Who is the replacement? Who pulled the trigger? How are the players reacting? Generally stuff that sports fans want to be clued in on.

But if you're the NHL and it's a fall Sunday, which we've talked about is jam packed with content, this is the type of coverage you may receive in regards to an early season coaching change.

Note: The volume is low on this video so adjust accordingly.

 

There is something that I can't put my finger on about this video that I love. Maybe it's that Levy and Cohn are both big hockey fans and have to close out the show by sneaking this tidbit in there. Cohn's playful "Bye!" doubles as a message to Payne and to viewers. It's almost as if she feels a bit guilty closing out the show on that note.

I am sure hockey fans are a bit underwhelmed by the lack of coverage. Truth be told, it's not something that really irks me at all, I just love the brevity and casualness of it. It's almost like in high school on your way out the door going to a party, trying to mention you flunked a trigonometry midterm. 

In case you'd like to know more about the move, head on over to Puck Daddy who will take care of you.  Bye!
