definitely hits kids
Probably the best "no name " coach in Canada and possibly the US , and who has turned down many offers to go pro would be this guy . He could call any organization in the NHL and have an assistant job or an AHL job whenever he wanted . However....he has no interest in the pro ranks it seems . His sister is a friend of mine and I have asked her about him before . Gardiner MacDougall
Right now I think we're getting someone with some name recognition. Whether that guy can also be the "over the hump" coach remains to be seen.
I would think that they would want to avoid the "3 coaches in 2 years" event. Or 3 coaches in 4 years.
Well, down this path, and looking at some choices out there, that's certainly a possibility.
James Dolan as head coach.
Let's get weird with it.
Phone battery at 43%. Haunting
Best coach in the league by a country mile. Loved him back when he coached the Blues even.
Kakko, Laf, a 4th and a 3rd for Darren Helm
Is it name recognition for marketing purposes (even to Dolan) or because last time we got a coach from college and that didn't work out?
mods pls ban
Quinn falls under the Dave Hakstol category. Couldn't find the right mix of motivating vets with NCAA kids.
It’s a joke on 43
I'd do this 10/10 times.
Don't you mean 4/3 times?
But don't feel sad...because four outta three ain't bad....
Gotta give him some credit: Kakko should probably be top 10 for the Selke (won't be) and that's amazing.
The problem is that he did that and then kept getting benched.
Anyone surprised we haven't received a public statement from DQ? We got one from J.D. We got one from Gorton. Nothing so far from the former head coach who from the reports went through an "amicable" parting of ways.
I would love to see Kakko have similar strengths to Kurri in the sense that he can provide high-end offense and still be a perennial Selke candidate.
Of course that means keeping him on the f***ing ice instead of Colin Crutches Blackwell.
Where's Gorton's statement?
I feel like it's not quite as customary for a coach to issue a statement.
14 years tossed away for missing an arbitrary deadline. Even though I thought DQ deserved another season to show some more, I get firing the coach. But I am still not over JG and JD. Maybe JG moreso, even though I personally go back even further with JD, as a fan. Either way, even if there are some justifications, this past couple weeks don’t sit well with me, still.
We’re never getting Darren Helm with unrealistic trade proposals like this...
