We dug up a 2003 story from the Washington Post on the firing of Bruce Cassidy. He was a young and inexperienced coach, and George McPhee gambled on Cassidy, who was fired after just 15 months with the Washington Capitals.

New VGK Head Coach Bruce Cassidy Told TSN 1200 that he had five interviews while looking for a new job.

Cassidy also talked about Mark Stone's leadership, Jack Eichel wanting to make the playoffs and Robin Lehne…
 
We took a look at which VGK players should benefit from the arrival of Bruce Cassidy as head coach in Las Vegas.

We also talk about Pete DeBoer landing as head coach of the Dallas Stars after being fired i…
 
Bruce Cassidy won the introductory presser on Thursday according to Chris and Tony.

Our guess is the VGK front office has probably heard enough of former head coach Gerrard Gallant's name in recent weeks as his team makes it into the Conference Final. Did VGK make a mistake by letting Gallant go too soon? He has shown his ability to win and be honest with his teams, media, and management. Also - Laurent Brossoit has hip surgery ov…

Timo Meier called Sunday's game against VGK, the Sharks biggest game of the season. He said the Sharks wanted to play the role of spoiler and knock the Golden Knights out of the playoffs.
