Three coaches, one division

I write the Wolves blog for ChicagoNow

The blog will not be looking deeply at the San Antonio Rampage, though the Chicago Wolves defeated them in a close 5-3 win last night and play them again tonight. The SAR are one of three AHL teams to have new coaches this season.

The Peoria Rivermen changed coaches when their parent club, the St. Louis Blues, terminated the Head Coaches contract there. That brought Rick Wamsley to the Rivermen earlier this month.

Greg Ireland received the axe in San Antonio in November as a Thanksgiving week present. Ireland, the former coach of the Grand Rapids Griffins, was replaced by Ray Edwards.

While in Chicago, the Wolves relieved Don Granato and called on Don Lever.

This blog is going to be relatively simple in form. It will present two sets of numbers for the three Western Division teams, representing their performance on some key stats overall and with the prior coaching staff removed.

Because all three teams are in the West, and to shorten the blog this morning, the entries will start with the West only.
