Kings can Crow
Los Angeles Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi Tuesday announced that Marc Crawford will not return next season as the team’s head coach. Crawford has one season remaining on his contract.A good move. Things need to begin to turnaround in Los Angeles, and Crawford never seemed to make any progress in that regard. His teams have been brutal defensively for some time now.
In his two seasons as head coach, Crawford posted a 59-84-21 with the Kings.
His recommendation a few years back that Dan Cloutier be a part of the solution couldn't have helped.
It's been a long fall for Crawford from the point when he was Team Canada's coach at the 1998 Olympics. I can't see his services as a head coach being in demand, despite the fact there are now six openings.
