Dean Lombardi on Coach Terry Murray’s Performance

Earlier today Kings’ GM Dean Lombardi spoke about Dustin Brown as the team’s captain this season (article here).

Now, here’s what he had to say about the performance of coach Terry Murray

Lombardi – “I liked his calmness. I think one of his strengths was when were in that slide there, he kept his composure. I think during that slide, when we slid out of the playoffs, that the necessity of calm and focus was essential. If we had gone the other way, I think that would have been ripe for not getting out of that. So, I think a lot coaches you evaluate at critical moments and I look at the way we came out of that during that period when we had to go into Phoenix and win that game to get on a roll. I thought he was the perfect guy for that situation.

“I think going forward, we’re all the same. It’s like yesterday’s thing – now we write down all the things that we could have done better – including me and Hex (Ron Hextall). And that’s the next assignment. We expect players to evaluate themselves and what did we learn from this to do better? So, I think he’s capable of doing that. Just like the players have to grow, we all have to grow.”

Oh – and for anybody that had a doubt – Terry Murray will be back to coach the LA Kings next season.

Case closed.

As for the power play… well, read what he has to say about that next.
