Blackhawks Daily: Popular Paul Maurice; Rebuild Timelines



Whether it’s the interviews with media or if he’s mic’d up for a game, Florida Panthers head coach Paul Maurice is a popular guy. Why shouldn’t he? All he’s done since coming Florida is win and now has a chance to finish the final job with a Stanley Cup win.

Florida Hockey Now’s George Richards wrote a few weeks about the popularity of Maurice, but it’s a different story with text messages and the Panthers bench boss. Maurice isn’t as dedicated to that craft, picking and choosing his time carefully as to when and how often he responds. The veteran coach admits he doesn’t use his phone often and has been known to forget it after he tosses into a drawer when returning home.

However one slices it, Paul Maurice is a continues to be a story in the Panthers’ playoff run. He doesn’t even need to check his phone for that.
