    If the Rangrest final get rid of AV like we all hope whom would you like as the next coach.

    My choice would be:

    Sheldon Keefe of the Toronto Marlies--he' great with young players and his record speaks for itself.

    Anyone else have a good choice.

    I know he is not available, but I would love to see Laviolette coach this young team.

    Ralph Kruger would be my choice, but not sure if he’d be available/want to do it

    Keefe would probably be a good choice. Maybe not the only one but with Babcock with the Maple Leafs he's pretty much blocked as far as that organization goes.

    If Chicago decides to move on from Joel Quenneville after their disastrous season I would love him here.

    I would think this might be the way the Rangers go. Lots of rumors Q will be let go. Great coach whom would help with the re-build.

    Few weeks ago I even heard a crazy rumor of Q and AV switching places.

    Personally if we'e building a young team I would like a young coach to be there hopefully when the team becomes very good. Wouldn' want to be changing coaches every few years and I'm not sure how much longer Q wants to coach.

    All in all good choice.

    If we are going to go with someone currently in the NHL, there is only one person I would want and it is the same person as @Amazing Kreiderman wants, Peter Laviolette.

    I'd have to question Quenneville coming here. Is he a guy that's better with a team that can contend than retool/rebuild?

    The Keefe/Thompson ideas IMO might be the best way to go. Young successful coaches who are used to working with younger players/prospects.

    Didn't the team have Filip Pesan at the rookie camp over the summer? Czech WJC coach and has coached Liberec in the Czech Republic for the past 3 years. He's probably a dark horse but possible.

    Don't want Pesan doesn't seem like he's a fan of Chytil with how he used him in the World Juniors.
    I'd really like Sheldon Keefe, he did amazing job developing all the Kids with the Marlies

    Will honestly be shocked if it's anyone but AV behind the bench in October, unless Hank does what he does, which he's earned the right to do. I've been wrong before, and I'll be wrong again.

    It won't be Keefe, though. We need to get over that. He's not a Rangers hire, and I think Toronto does what it takes to keep him within their organization.

    At this point I wouldn't be surprised if it's Oleg Znarok

    Want my conspiracy theory? Benoit Groulx. He’s the coach of thr Syracuse Crunch and we just made a franchise-altering trade with Tampa’s system. I’m speculating wildly because of the whole Drury trip to that game, but Groulx has done well with Syracuse and has success with the Olympiques in the Q, winning coach of the year and a championship there. Has two stints coaching the AHL, and one was with Rochester. Lindy Ruff was the coach of the Sabres then.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see us draft his son at the end of the 1st or early 2nd.

    Considering the moves made, perhaps Vladimir Putin.

    Keefe probably won’t happen

    Someone like David Quinn would be cool.

    Regarding what? Keefe or Quinn

    If it’s Keefe, similar to what silverfish said, he doesn’t scream Rangers hire to me.

    He’s a solid coach and I would love him here but I think they look elsewhere

    Quinn seems like a Rangers hire, and a Gorton guy

    I wouldn't expect Toronto to block Keefe if an NHL team wanted to hire him. Mike Babcock has years ahead of him with the NHL franchise. They might not be happy about his leaving but I do think they'd let him go.
