According to just about every Calgary-area media outlet, including those fine folks at TSN, Calgary Flames Head Coach/GM Darryl Sutter has stepped down as Head Coach, naming assistant Jim Playfair as new Head Coach.
The Flames coaching staff now includes Playfair and assistants Rob Cookson, Rick Preston & newcomer Wayne Fleming.
Normally I hate mascots. When the Blues debuted their new mascot last year I despised it (I guess its great for the kids and all but I digress.) However, a friend sent me a link to the new Phoenix mascot Pierre. Holy crap is this thing hilarious.
