VIDEO: Barry Melrose on the Kings firing Terry Murray

For a guy who has coached less than three full NHL seasons, Barry Melrose has garnered quite the following over the last two decades. Now, as an analyst on the NHL Network, he offered his opinion on the Kings coaching change today.

In the following video he talks about pressure from ownership that may have been placed on GM Dean Lombardi, the play of Anze KopitarMike Richards, Simon Gagne, Terry Murray’s system, Darryl Sutter and more.

The most telling quotes may be when he talks about the Kings ‘not losing because of talent or systems,’ but because ‘you don’t see a lot of energy or passion in their play.’

One more thing – Melrose is not being considered for the job.

However, early this morning we posted a list of possible candidates here and be sure to vote in the poll on who you think the next coach should be here.
