What you think about “Fort Frances fires coach”

  1. The organization has had nothing but problems for the past 4 years. This year the team was Improving day by day.
    The coach was the best thing they had in fort,
    This kid taking over has no more than pee wee hockey experience,
    This organization has lots all respect among the league
    For its repeated bad decision.

  2. Good riddance! There was zero off ice team building and minimal community involvement for the team which resulted in the team not coming together cohesively. Off ice chemistry has to be as strong as on ice chemistry. Biggest complaint from experience and seeing the team building other teams do. Hope the team can come together and Miller can bring the strengths of players to the game.

  3. Lakers Board Director!
