I was referring to the airing of dirty laundry in a public forum, the bashing of his players directly and indirectly, and the whole spat with Williams. I agree that lame duck coaching is not ok. But he had a year left on his contract with us iirc. Also he intentionally tanked a game many Kings fans were desperate to win (a game I nearly bought tickets to) and I have pretty strong questions about his final 20 games overall in which I think he may have just thrown a tantrum over Barnes and gave everyone a finger on the way out.
39 or 40 wins doesn't mean much to me. Still a non playoff team.
From what I understand, on the day of the game, Joerger was informed to expect to be fired the following day. And yes, he did indeed, tank that game.
