It’s a Good Hair Day in Tampa

Mama always told you to get a haircut before a job interview, didn’t she? We don’t know if Barry Melrose did that earlier this spring in his meetings with the new owners of the Tampa Bay Lightning, but at his press conference today to announce him as the new Lightning head coach, he looked all cleaned up . . . still mulletted, mind you, but lookin’ spiffy.

The Southeast division just became a heck of a lot more fun to cover.
Below is the Tampa press conference, followed by ESPN’s Melrose Tribute.

    Rich Tocchet, Assistant Coach? Did I hear correctly?

  2. It’s a good wager, Ben.

    Barry’s mullet is awesome! Bolts will be much more interesting to watch this year…

    Whatever keeps him from providing analysis and commentary has to be a good thing.

    What do you do when you have Vinny, Frodo, Boyle, and Stamkos? You hire a clown in a mullet and play for the Tavares sweepstakes. This is a good day, Caps fans.

    I’m excited. Watching our division “rivals” stumble around, led by Barry and Tocchet, will be a real treat. Let’s hope they do just well enough to miss a high-enough pick next year.
