What you think about “Sudbury Wolves fire head coach”

  1. Fixter was a bad hire rite from the start. Not a Head Coach!!!
    He fu–ed up the Playoffs for us last year and he rubbs alot of players and fans the wrong way.

  2. This was a long time coming this coaching change . As Fixter lost this team before last years playoffs and then the playoffs were a major disaster as all Wolves fans know. In North Bay we have a good coach with Stan Butler and he is the diffrence between the succes that we have here and the loosing in Sudbury.
