    Would like that idea. Still think Ruff is a good coach. he's been saddled with a patched together team (buffalo) and then **** goaltending (dallas)

    I'm 90% positive this is Gorton's guy.

    I would be behind this.

    Hope he would bring along who ever the hell is responsible for developing all of those defensemen too.

    Jeff did say he thinks coaches in their second go around could have a lot of success.

    Barry "no neck" Trotz? Surely he'd be fired if the Jackets eliminate them earlier than usual. Lol.

    I like Rick but he's hardly been the guy to break anything or have any sort of inside information on the Rangers.

    No, he didn’t. He said he doesn’t think that he’s high on the list.

    That's right he said he's not at the top of the list. My apologies.

    I like Peters and the style he's implemented in Carolina. Has not had the results, but terrible goaltending and no help from his GM to add required help up front, have doomed him and the Canes.
    He's part of the Team Canada coaching team for international events and is well thought of around the league. Only thing I'm not sure of, is his turn the other check mentality, which I think he's part of, seems quite reserved behind the bench...
    Funny that with all the winning seasons and successful playoff runs, AV has never been part of Team Canada coaching staff in any capacity...

    He's most likely very difficult to work with. League managers probably know this about him. His narcissism definitely comes into play, seems to think he is better than everyone else. You can't have that around other adults, it makes for a sour room.

    AV to Dallas sounds about right. I have a feeling he’ll take a year off though.

    Would continue to get NYR money to smoke cigars and play poker, correct? He'll find his way to Montreal for 19-20.

    If he's hired for next season, he won't receive NYR money, IIRC

    Rangers in a good position right now, only two openings in the NHL they should be able to have their pick of who's out there

    Surprised the Flames haven't made a change, and we'll know about Carolina by Friday

    As for the Islanders, just lol

    Messier, Keenan, Leetch, Trotz, or Todd Nelson.

    Why not?

    In Nashville he showed that he can grow with a team and in Washington he’s been unlucky to go against loaded Pens with subpar goaltending. His teams play hard and he’s not known as a prospects killer.

    Gorton said he wanted a “fresh” coach, Trotz is most definitely not that

    He is not. But maybe the outside the box choice is Scott Stevens? I liked Brooksie's article on him as a possibility.

    I’m not as thrilled with Stevens either, I don’t think the defenses he ran were actually as good as they were perceived to be. My personal top 3 would be (in no order) Keefe, Montgomery, or Pascal Vincent. All young, ready to take the next step, and have a good track record of winning and developing players

    Yeah I kind of wonder where Keefe is on Gorton's list actually.
