That is according to Jeremy Rutherford.

Davis Payne was the Blues coach from 2010 until he was fired and replaced by Ken Hitchcock, the latter of whom has dingle-berries with which Surly is obsessed. Davis Payne took over the Blues’ head coaching job from former L.A. Kings head coach, Andy Murray. Davis Payne will replace former L.A. Kings assistant coach, Jamie Kompon, who is now an assistant with Chicago. Jamie Kompon still sucks. I think that takes care of all threads to this hiring.

What do I know about Davis Payne? Very little…but I can read.
