Was he the last of the Winnipeg Jets (you know what I mean)?

Holy hell, the more I hear about this Barroway character the more I'm convinced he's a poor-man's Dan Snyder.

Supposedly he went out with a ilttle hissy fit because he didn't like how things went...just like he does on the ice.

The media seems to be having a contest who can praise Doan the most/best. The guy was a scumbag on the ice. Elbows high, shit between the whistles and the absolute poster boy for finishing your check 2 seconds after the fact. People seem to be more than willing to gloss over what he was on the ice to praise him for what he was off the ice...yeah it's great what he was on the ice. Still a giant shitbag on the ice.

And now coach Tippett is out.

I think the realization has set in that not being bad enough to draft Auston Matthews has screwed this team for good so it's time to strip it bare.

That may all be true, but Barroway still seems like the worst kind of owner.

And now he fired Tippett.

And now, to paraphrase someone on Twitter:

On the eve of the NHL Draft the Coyotes have no coach, no captain, no top line C, no starting goalie, and while it's not really that big a deal, no president.

EDIT: It apparently wasn't a firing per se, Tippett didn't like the Smith trade or the way things went down with Doan, so they agreed to part ways.

That "no starting goalie" thing is funny, and I pointed it out on twitter. Literally anyone can be a starting goalie. Buffalo tried to go without one when they were tanking by trading all of their goalies away, but someone kept finding a way into the net to start games. There's probably a rule for that or something.

Louis Domingue started 70 games for them the past two seasons and put up a .910 save percentage. What is he, chopped liver?

Doan announces his retirement after 21 seasons. Spent his entire career with the Winnipeg Jets/Phoenix Coyotes/Arizona Coyotes.

In the NHL, yes. Deron Quint is still bouncing around Europe at 41.

Arizona on pace for 30 points.

Doan's likely reaction...
