The coaching renovations in Calgary continue as Craig Harstsburg was let go by the Flames today. This does not come as a surprise as Feaster hinted in the announcement of Bob Hartley as coach, that he would be given free hand to pick his staff.
Hartley will be looking for one more Assistant Coach to add along with Jacques Cloutier.
Will Clint Malarchuk make the cut? Time will tell.
