I promise you nobody cares what a sourpuss like you thinks about the situation... There are plenty of goofer fans that wish you wouldn't root for their team.

There's no other professional sport that head coaches get fired from faster than the NHL, either.

I don't disparage Hakstol from taking a shot. Good for him.

I just think he shouldn't have taken it with a team known for impatience and a hostile fan base when it comes to losing.

You just got done saying the NHL fires head coaches faster than any other league so taking a chance with Philly is a no brainer imho. :) Hak was a dooshnozzle leader at UND but I wish him the best in the NHL.

Great article on Hak from the Philly paper.

"'Hak' is a farmer," Jackson said. "I use that term endearingly. It's someone who works their *** off and does everything. He can fix the tractor, he can plant crops, he can harvest, he can deal with whatever to try and adapt and overcome everything. Here, he gets paid very well, but he's not driving a fancy car. He's a simple guy."

Hackstol's brother, Brian, still works on the family farm in Warburg, Alberta where his father, Ed, raised him before passing a decade ago after a sudden illness. His mother, Theresa, is still a substitute teacher who has been known to frequent North Dakota hockey fan chat rooms online.
