Jordan Kyrou greatly disrespected Craig Berube

After five seasons on the St. Louis Blues’ bench, Craig Berube was dismissed on Tuesday evening.

With the Blues having lost their last four games, management decided to stir the pot a bit.

The team’s players were asked to comment on Berube’s dismissal today, and Jordan Kyrou’s reaction is worth sharing.

The club’s star simply confided that he didn’t want to comment on the situation… Because Berube is no longer his coach.

Yikes. Let’s just say it says a lot about how Kyrou felt about his former coach:

It’s not perfect happiness right now in St. Louis. Really not, in fact.

In yesterday’s press conference, Doug Armstrong confided that he’s not happy with the job he’s done since taking over, and took the blame for the team’s recent failures.

There seems to be a big grey cloud hanging over the organization at the moment…

But back to Kyrou.

The player is right in the sense that he no longer has anything to do with Craig Berube, now that the latter is no longer the club’s head coach.

That said, I find it aberrant to see the player disrespecting his former driver. After all… Craig Berube took the Blues all the way to the Stanley Cup Final and played a big role in the club’s conquest in 2019.

The club was in the bottom half of the standings when Berube took over. And he still found a way to take the club all the way that same year.

Jordan Kyrou has every right in the world to be dissatisfied with his club’s performance right now, and he has every right in the world to think Berube is the cause.

But Kyrou should still have thanked his former coach for what he did with the team in recent years.

Especially as the Blues have only missed the playoffs once, under Craig Berube’s guidance…
