gracie12 Posted June 22, 2009 Report Share Posted June 22, 2009 He wasn't really fired. His contract had expired and had not been renewed because the organization simply decided to go another direction (possibly giving Guy Boucher a chance?). I mean, the writing was on the wall already, Gainey having given he and Wilson the opportunity to pursue a job elsewhere last month. I would agree that this is the best way to explain things. I think Gainey felt the direction was different & probably had fully planned this for the better part of last year, but while many of us fans thought Lever was brought up to help, or be tutored in coaching in the NHL, i think gainey brought up lever to see if there was anywhere the guy did fit into our plans and obviously, based on todays news, the answer is no. Good luck Don, you seemed like a class guy. People will bring up Lever's Calder Cup, but honestly, the point is to hoist the Stanley Cup. I don't give a damn one way or another how many Calder Cups the Bulldogs win, provided the Habs are successful. Well and i think that while Lever made some good coaching moves on the way to the win, if it werent for things like Price's MVP performance, there would have been no cup.
