The Death Pool – Cressman Out Of Odessa Special Report

Yep, when the boss is away, this kid is gonna play!

Hey Odessa, yeah its about time you pulled your head out of your collective asses!  That’s right I said it.  The Jackalopes have been the laughing stock of the NAHL for two solid years and they just figured out that they might need to hire a coach who actually knows what he is doing when recruiting.

Cressman took over for the departed Paul Gillis this summer.  Gillis’s team had a barn burner of a season with a record of 6-51-3.  Cressman of course was expected to do so much better! HA HA HA  Yep, the assistant who took over for Gillis was expected to know more than the veteran coach.  Well, he did a bang up job kids.  13-33-4 wooooooo hooooooo

With a whole summer to recruit, and Cressman says;

“I don’t know the reasoning behind the move, I thought we were making good strides and heading in the right direction.”

Ummmmmmmmm yeah, okay, 13-33-4 and you don’t know why Ownership would kick you to the curb?  Hey Chester wake up.

Just a hint to all you pro hockey guys making the jump to junior hockey…..You actually have to be able to coach and teach in junior hockey.  You cant just recruit the best players you can find and hope everything comes together!  That’s right kids, this is a full time job and there is no such things as an off season or eight hour day.

Lets hope Odessa’s “director of scouting” was fired too.  The “boy wonder” he is not!

Are the Odessa Jackalopes a bad hockey team?  Oh hell yeah, they are really bad.  Could they be better?  For sure, all they have to do is get out and actually work.

With the Jacks set to name an interim coach today, and I for one feel sorry as hell for this sucker, the only place to go is up.  Is a new coach going to right the ship?  Not a chance in hell.  You cant fix a bad hockey team when you cant recruit or bring in new players.

With ten games to go in the season, the only bright spot for the new coach……….

Eight out of ten games are on home ice, and at least he wont have to spend days upon days on the road thinking to himself…….”What was I thinking?”
