Gulutzan to get the boot? (update)
By Victoria Matiash
UPDATE: As announced by new Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill, head coach Glen Gulutzan and assistant coach Paul Jerrard have been relieved of their duties.
*** Barring a near-miraculous ending to the season and unexpected charge through the playoffs, Glen Gulutzan's days as head coach of the Dallas Stars appear numbered. Corbett Smith of Fox Sports Southwest:
"... I think (Gulutzan's) time is drawing nigh unless they make the playoffs and make an L.A. Kings style run to the Stanley Cup finals. I just don't see that happening. He's been in hot water for a long time. I think this is the writing on the wall. I think this is his time to go. The big question is Joe Nieuwendyk, where does his job security lie? That'll be the big question for me ..."
Currently 10th in the West, the Stars remain four points out of a playoff spot.
