Sweet Revenge For The Hurricanes Paul Maurice
Total Pro Sports – After failing to meet the goals and the needs of the harsh Toronto fans, 2 years after being hired Paul Maurice was fired as the head coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“It’s absolutely personal. You want to see that team (Leafs) lose every game for the next 10 years. That’s how I feel to be honest with you.” Said Paul Maurice in an interview with the Toronto Star
Paul Maurice was back behind the bench at the Air Canada Center yesterday but this time coaching the Carolina Hurricanes. Maurice returned to Carolina after spending 7 seasons with the Hurricanes before getting fired. He had his most success with the Hurricanes making the playoffs 3 out of 6 years and the Stanley Cup Finals once.
Everyone had their eye on Paul Maurice last night as his coaching skills were put to the test against his old team. Not only did the Carolina Hurricanes come out with the big 2-0 win at the ACC, he told the press that,
“Nothing feels better then beating the organization that had relieved me of my duties.”
A coach that was given no supporting cast in Toronto and only one option to win the Cup. I would have made the same comments after a win in the city that fired me.
