Hitchcock relieved of duties, Yeo becomes head coach by Chris Pinkert

ST. LOUIS - Mike Yeo's tenure as the head coach of the St. Louis Blues will begin earlier than expected.

On Wednesday morning, Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong announced that Ken Hitchcock has been relieved of his duties as head coach. Yeo, who was hired last summer as the team's associate coach and was to take over as head coach of the Blues next season, was promoted effective immediately.

 

 

The decision comes as the Blues have lost five of their last six games

Whoa. Surprising news in one sense, completely reasonable in another.

Armstrong there in St Louis said the team had too man "independent contractors" i.e. selfish players.

I did notice during our win against St. Louis that they seemed to count more on individual effort than team play.

"Independent Contractors."  That's a keeper.  Fortunately, it isn't as widespread in hockey as basketball.  One of many reasons I cannot stand to watch the NBA.
