    The one thing that Jason York said on the Healthy Scratches was that when things were going well, Wilson would joke around in practise tousle the hair of players etc... When they went bad, he wouldn't even acknowledge you.

    That is weird and immature. Not good qualities in a coach....

    If someone can find me code for a Count up widget I'll start it as of his Hiring date and put it on the main page. We can stop it when he gets fired.

    Check this one... you can generate code for the countdown...

    http://ricocheting.com/js/countdown.html

    Here's the code for a countdown timer to March 1st, 2010 @ noon.

    Code:


    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!-- //start

    //######################################################################################
    // Author: ricocheting.com
    // For: public release (freeware)
    // Date: 4/24/2003 (update: 5/15/2009)
    // Description: displays the amount of time until the "dateFuture" entered below.


    // NOTE: the month entered must be one less than current month. ie; 0=January, 11=December
    // NOTE: the hour is in 24 hour format. 0=12am, 15=3pm etc
    // format: dateFuture = new Date(year,month-1,day,hour,min,sec)
    // example: dateFuture = new Date(2003,03,26,14,15,00) = April 26, 2003 - 2:15:00 pm

    dateFuture = new Date(2010,2,1,24,00,00);

    // TESTING: comment out the line below to print out the "dateFuture" for testing purposes
    http://document.write(dateFuture +"<br />");


    //###################################
    //nothing beyond this point
    function GetCount(){

        dateNow = new Date();                                    //grab current date
        amount = dateFuture.getTime() - dateNow.getTime();        //calc milliseconds between dates
        delete dateNow;

        // time is already past
        if(amount < 0){
            document.getElementById('countbox').innerHTML="Now!";
        }
        // date is still good
        else{
            days=0;hours=0;mins=0;secs=0;out="";

            amount = Math.floor(amount/1000);//kill the "milliseconds" so just secs

            days=Math.floor(amount/86400);//days
            amount=amount%86400;

            hours=Math.floor(amount/3600);//hours
            amount=amount%3600;

            mins=Math.floor(amount/60);//minutes
            amount=amount%60;

            secs=Math.floor(amount);//seconds

            if(days != 0){out += days +" day"+((days!=1)?"s":"")+", ";}
            if(days != 0 || hours != 0){out += hours +" hour"+((hours!=1)?"s":"")+", ";}
            if(days != 0 || hours != 0 || mins != 0){out += mins +" minute"+((mins!=1)?"s":"")+", ";}
            out += secs +" seconds";
            document.getElementById('countbox').innerHTML=out;

            setTimeout("GetCount()", 1000);
        }
    }

    window.onload=GetCount;//call when everything has loaded

    //-->
    </script>
    <div id="countbox"></div>

    Too funny.

    If he goes, I'll say he goes in mid-June, not with a month and a half to go in the season.

    I don't believe he will be fired, but I hear that Burke might waive some players, and/or trades might happen. Maybe he'll trade his firs... er...

    Maybe they'll finish last place and get a high firs.... er...

    Heh heh.

    Or the second.... er....

    Burke said that he'd have no problem sending high prriced players down and bringing up youth... we'll see if he actually follows through with that. Doubt it, but you never know.

    They don't have all that many prospects, at least ones with high potential, but I guess you never know. Some team might get a real nice gift if they were to claim a Blake, or Stajan, or whomever off re-entry.

    Burke could recall Kadri, Didomenico, Stahlberg and it still won't make a difference to the team. He's an awful GM and the fans are starting to see what they were better off without.

    Though to even guess where this dysfunctional team is headed. The delusions of grandeur from management and fans alike are a source of amusement, though.

    Pens in 5.

    I'll vote for March. He's going to get so angry at his team that he'll say something that he can't take back and that Burke can't ignore.
