Haha, hope his first question is if he had to take a taxi.

Another funny wrinkle to this. Guess who the coach for the Pacific is next at the All Star Game?

Thatís a very good and perplexing question. Their loss last night was not due to lack of effort. I would think there has to be something else going on.
Strangely enough, the casino here that sponsors our outdoor rink downtown is flying Ryan Reeves up here next week for a kids clinic. I plan to be there and Iím thinking our local sports guys will be asking some questions.

Gallant did a good job in Miami too, and got fired after about the same amount of time. Is he maybe a Mike Keenan type, like a hardass coach who gets results but loses the players and wears out the organization after a couple years and has to move on?

I wonder. It does give me a bit of pause. Haven't heard players badmouth him the way they did Keenan, though. Maybe he's more of a pain for GMs to deal with. Or something about the way his teams play looks bad on some advanced stats so they see that and pull the trigger.

I’ve always heard Gallant described as a “players coach”.

The Athletic did an anonymous survey of players and 23% of the players said the coach, other than their own, that they wanted to play for was Gallant (tied with some guy named Cooper).

Suspect owner got involved. He vowed Vegas would win The Stanley Cup in 5 years. Thankfully Vinik is more patient.

Could be, from what I've heard he's a hard ass military (West Point) guy.
If so, its a real dumbass move IMO.
