AHL coach Jim Playfair welcome to your new life. No matter what you do throughout your career, whether it be getting another crack at coaching in the NHL or not, from this point forward you will always be the guy that lost his mind like this.
Welcome to internet infamy Mr. Playfair. The best part of Playfair’s tirade is watching his players laugh into their gloves while he’s ripping off his Tip Top tailored jacket. Although I could be wrong on that point, it is the minor leagues, thus it’s quite possible that the players were either chowing down a red hot from the concession stand or dusting off their last shot of Jim Beam from their flask.
The odd thing about Playfair’s ballistics is that you don’t normally see this type of blow up from behind a hockey bench. This type of anger dancing is usually left to baseball managers like Phillip Wellman, who in my opinion set the gold standard a few years back.
