i guess the worst kept secret in hockey will be formally announced tuesday at the tampa lightning's new head coach. the rumor about barry melrose broke during the stanley cup playoffs but he flat denied it on the air. this was before new ownership was named and approved.

its been 12 years since melrose coached the la kings but they did have a semi-decent player named gretzky at the time. so, looks like the nhl isn't returning to espn anytime soon!!

He never actually totally denied it. He skirted the truth with what he said.

And he had to at the time.

Now, does ESPN have anyone left to give comment on the NHL now, seeing they get a :30 sec blip every few weeks anyways.

I really wish ESPN would at least cover the sport, then we wouldn't have to deal with 24/7 NBA coverage after the NFL is over.

Wow, I'm sorry for all you lightning fans. I was hoping that it was just going to stay a rumor.

Speaking of Grapes - I still LOL when thinking of him calling Melrose "Billy Ray Cyprus" :D

you know though, i'm tempted to take a mini-tampa vacation later in the year and catch a couple of bolts games. the addition of steven stamkos (beside vinny lecavier and martin st. louis) and the mullett would be worth the money for me.
