    Bab should never coach in any league ever again.

    Gallant should be the 1st coach for Kraken.

    Do NOT want Babcock.

    As much as I hated Gallant as a Sharks fan, I would definitely be on-board getting him as our head coach on the Kraken. Not sure how interested he would be though to be honest to coach another expansion team.

    I would target up and coming coaches from the AHL and juniors as well as any available NHL coaches with experience.

    Bring Coach Konowalchuk! He was Assistant for Anaheim for a couple years, and is scouting for NYR now

    As a long time Wings fan, I can tell you that you are absolutely correct in your assessment of Babcock. His approach does work with an established veteran team with talent, but he's not the right coach for an expansion team.

    Consider Steve Ott. Heard he's actually pretty good behind the bench.

    Babcock gets 6.25 million by sitting on his butt doing nothing for 3 more years. If he takes the job he gives all that up. Do you think an expansion franchise will want to pay more?

    I don’t know about Babs.
    He is a knowledgeable hockey man, however, his ego and stubbornness not only seem to strain relations within an organization but get the better of Babcock himself. Like it’s more important to stick to his guns than to change things up. I’m also a firm believer that a positive environment behind the scenes finds it’s way onto the ice. I don’t know that Babcock couldn’t contribute to the right environment but I’d prefer not to risk it.
