Hamilton Bulldogs(AHL) Coach Guy Boucher was offered the head coaching gig with the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets last week. However, after asking for time to think it over, he turned down the Jackets' offer. (Columbus subsequently hired Scott Arniel.) Now, according to a Monday report on the Canadian website RueFrontenac.com, Boucher has resigned his job with Hamilton, Montreal's AHL affiliate, to become the next Head Coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning. A press conference has reportedly been scheduled for Wednesday.

Boucher, who just completed his first season as a pro head coach, led the Bulldogs to a 52-17-3-8 record for 115 points and a first place finish in the North Division of the Western Conference. (Hamilton was eliminated in the Western Conference finals by Texas.) Two years ago, Boucher coached the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the Quebec Major Junior League to a 54-10-0-4 record.

Boucher is set to replace Rick Tocchet who, along with G.M. Brian Lawton, was fired after last season by new owner Jeff Vinik. The Lightning have made the playoffs just twice, without winning a series, since winning the Stanley Cup in 2004.

The Rays then host the Florida Marlins for three games, Friday and Saturday at 7:20pm EDT and Sunday at 1:40pm EDT.

MTV has issued an apology in response to criticism that the network's annual Movie Awards were wall-to-wall profanity on Sunday night. One review clocked more than 100 curse words in the 122-minute show. (Isn't it about #$@%#&%* time that those @#$%^&*! get back to showing some %$#@&%# music videos again?)
