Gully is a real cool dude. Got to meet him a few times when he was coachin here in Vegas. He took us to the finals once, but we were beat by a highly skilled Cyclones team. I didn't care for Gully at first because he kept trading are tough guys for soft euros, but he eventually brought in a badass team for the 08-09 season. Tim Spencer
, Steve Makaway, JD Watt, and Brandon Straub would take on anyone the league had to offer. There weren't too many games that year that didn't have a tilt.
Gully was the awarded a contract next season with the Texas Stars
and took them to the AHL finals his first year there in 09-10.
The guy has taken a team to the finals in every league he has coached in, so its a no brainer decision here for Dallas. Even a Finals loss is better than the crap they are putting out on the ice.
