Maurice gets 3 year contract

The Canes signed the "interim" coach Paul Maurice to a 3-year contract today. The rest of the coaching staff will remain intact, with an added title of "Director of Player Personnel" for Ron Francis and Tom Barrasso being bumped up to "Assistant Coach".

This is good... I guess. Despite the fact that Maurice didn't crash and burn like I expected him to (actually, he did the opposite of that) I still am not sure about him being the long-term coach. Probably because I can't stop remembering his first stint with the Canes and how that fell to pieces. And because his brand of hockey can be downright boring at times.

Eh, whatever. I suppose if he can continue to get the Canes deep in the playoffs, then there's no reason to complain.
