Strathroy Rockets

Question for Rocketgirl. Nasty rumour this am that the Rockets have cleaned house i.e. all coaching staff let go. Any truth to this or just trash talk?

I guess it's entirely possible, but I wouldn't think so.

My supposed informant said it was a done deal, much to my surprise. Especially given their awards banquet barely over, and the May try out camp a few weeks away. As you previously stated “silly season has begun.”

I've heard they've reached out to a few coaching prospects but they're not the only team in the market for a new coach

What other teams are looking for a New Head Coach? Chatham perhaps!

I guess a certain Alliance coach was lying about having a meeting then

Not sure why anyone would assume the Rockets would be in the market for a change since they are now headed in the right direction. As the article above correctly notes, best season since 2014-15. That didn't happen by accident. Might be that the alliance coach did little more than review the final standings and assume the teams in the lower half needed his help.

If he recalls a meeting it was likely interrupted by his alarm clock going off to tell him it was time to go to work.

Are you sure he said Strathroy? Or maybe he's part of the group of people spreading this lie. Or maybe you are.
