Basically, Levien and lash are gone. Uncertainty about hollinger. I think Joeger will be safe. Robert Pera has been very hands on and I like that

I knew you wouldn't like that when I heard it. Apparently some bad blood in there and Joerger was mixed up in it. And JUST when I was liking the guy! :shrug:

So here is what happened in a nut shell:

Levien and lash backed up Joeger

Mincburg (sp?) hates Joeger

Pera listens to minceburg

Pera and Joeger have rocky relationship

Levien and lash save Dave from being fired numerous times throughout the season

Levien and lash are let go

Joeger is not wanted by Pera, thus interviewing in minny

Well if they let him go, they'd better have a stellar hire for coach
who's left out there that wants a crazy job????

Thibs, Hollins, Jeff van gundy all come to mind. Would like them to at least call jerry Sloan as well
