As most of you are aware by now, the Los Angeles Kings fired head coach Marc Crawford on Tuesday, ending his coaching tenure with the team after only two seasons, where he posted a 59-84-21 record. But, as is often the case in professional sports, two seasons plus no playoff appearances equals no job for the head coach. Add that to the fact that the Kings haven’t sniffed the playoffs since the 2001-2002 season, and it’s not surprising their front office’s patience has worn thin.
But we here at MYFO do not like to dwell on Crawford’s past – it’s not our style – nope, not at all. Instead, let us look to the future and attempt to ascertain where Marc Crawford might go from here.
One thing is for sure, Marc Crawford isn’t curling up in a ball of self-pity and feeling sorry for himself about what occurred. In fact, he is already out pounding the pavement looking for a new head coaching gig. Below is some video footage MYFO has acquired of Crawford hitting the bricks and beginning the pursuit of his next job:
After seeing that footage, who wouldn’t want to hire this guy? Except for Crabmeat, Motobug and the other assorted Badnkiks, of course. For reasons only known to them, the Badniks have never forgiven Crawford for the Bertuzzi/Moore incident. Although this shouldn’t pose any problems for Crawford as I’m pretty sure that there isn’t a Badnik currently running an NHL team…
However, come to think of it, there has always been something fishy about New Jersey Devils General Manager Lou Lamoriello. I could never quite put my finger on it, but now it’s crystal clear. Is it possible Lou Lamoriello is Doctor Robotnik a/k/a Dr. Eggman, Sonic’s sworn enemy, in disguise?
Shit, slap a big old moustache on Big Lou and the resemblance is uncanny. With that in mind, whatever Marc decides to do, I’d advise him to stay away from New Jersey – even more so than the average person should.
Given this new information, it might be a good idea to further investigate the incidence of fictional video game characters infiltrating the National Hockey League.
