    Man, I heard about Jim Montgomery. I heard the Dallas Stars fired him for "inappropriate conduct". What the heck does that mean?? I'm really suprised about all this.

      Regarding the recent dismissal of Jim, Dallas Stars' official statement reads "unprofessional conduct inconsistent with the core values and beliefs of the Dallas Stars and the National Hockey League."
      I think his behavior with the players was not right.
