Monday, the Nashville Predators relieved coach Peter Laviolette and assistant coach Kevin McCarthy of their duties. Today, the team hired former head coach of the New Jersey Devils, John Hynes. Hynes, highly respected among the NHL's owners and GM's is said to be a bit fiery, is good at developing talent, and runs high tempo practices.
It's hoped Hynes will turn the disappointing 2019-20 Preds roster into what fans thought it would be: a contender in the division and playoffs.
Here's what people are saying about the new coach.
