Und hier die Bestätigung

Washington Capitals setzten Coach vor die Tür
Die Entlassung bahnte sich an. Trotz eines erstklassigen Ensembles hatten die Eishockey-Profis der Washington Capitals den Einzug in die NHL-Play-offs verpasst. Als erstes Opfer des Misserfolgs wurde nun Trainer Ron Wilson entlassen.

Der Klub um den deutschen Nationaltorhüters Olaf Kölzig, der häufig gute Noten für seine Paraden bekam, hatte trotz der Verpflichtung des mehrmaligen tschechischen NHL-Topscorers Jaromir Jagr enttäuscht. 1998 hatte Wilson den Klub in die Finalserie um den Stanley Cup geführt. Damals verlor Washington gegen die Detroit Red Wings in vier Spielen.

Wie erwartet, kann man da nur sagen. Ist aber auch nach zu vollziehen. Wilson ist sicherlich ein Top Trainer, aber die letzten Jahre kam mit Washington letztlich immer nur heiße Luft und wer mit Jagr nicht die PO´s erreicht...

Capitals fire coach Ron Wilson

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Capitals fired coach Ron Wilson, who led the team to the 1998 Stanley Cup finals but hasn't won a playoff series since.
Wilson's dismissal Friday came a month after the Capitals, who were thought to be a sure bet for the playoffs after trading for Jaromir Jagr, finished ninth in the Eastern Conference - one spot away from a postseason berth - with a 36-33-11-2 record.
The Capitals were hurt by injuries to several key players, including Jagr, and owner Ted Leonsis said at the end of the season he would not make a coaching change during the offseason.
Apparently, he changed his mind.
"Needless to say, this was a difficult decision," general manager George McPhee said. "Ron is a very good coach, but sometimes a coach's relationship with a team runs its course.
"After an analysis of the past season, a coaching change was in the best interests of the Washington Capitals." Wilson was hired in 1997 and went 192-159-51-8 over five seasons. In his first season, he led the Capitals, who were seeded fourth in their conference, to the league finals after the top three seeds were eliminated by other teams in the first round. The Caps were swept by Detroit for the Stanley Cup.
Washington then was hit hard by injuries and failed to make the playoffs the following season. In 2000 and '01, it made the playoffs but lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round both years.
Leonsis vowed the Capitals would do better, and he traded for Jagr, then signed the former Penguins star to an eight-year, $88 million contract. It was several weeks into the season before Jagr adjusted to Wilson's defensive system, and a knee injury during the first week of the season slowed his transition.
Also, major injuries to Calle Johansson, Steve Konowalchuk and Jeff Halpern hurt the Capitals, who started slowly for the fourth consecutive season. They rallied toward the end of the season to make a run for the playoffs, but it was too late.
While Leonsis had previously said Wilson would return next season, the owner also hinted he would make a midseason coaching change if the Capitals started poorly again.
Before joining the Capitals, Wilson coached four seasons with the Anaheim.
He led the expansion team to an impressive 33-46-5 record his first season but was fired after his only playoff appearance, a first-round loss in 1997. His overall coaching record is 312-304-82-8.





Rock on,
and on, and on...

Wer mit Jagr nicht die PO's erreicht ist entweder unfähig oder einer der sich von seinen Spielern nichts sagen lässt.
