    Dallas Eakins looked too pretty boy to be a good hockey coach, how could he command any respect? I think Keefe has that base covered

    Dallas Eakins and also David Quinn (and I'll add Hakstol from the Flyers to this list) all look like they can be regenerated versions of The Doctor from Doctor Who.

    We're just setting ourselves up for disappointment when we don't get Keefe.

    I guarantee it.

    I think Keefe will be the guy but even if he isn’t, there are plenty of attractive options out there.

    The only choices that would upset me would be an NHL retread or Brooks’ Stevens dream coming to roost.

    Gorton specifically said he doesn't want to really consider anyone who hasn't been a head coach before. Stevens never has. A little concerning that Brooks wrote that since he sometimes primes the fans for organizational decisions that have already been made, but I'm not sure I see Stevens happening.

    Surprised Brooks hasn’t mentioned Lemaire or Larry Robinson to coach the Rangers. There’s still plenty of time.

    He said something to that effect to Larry Brooks in the conference he had last week.

    He said it during his interview on the radio a week or so ago. I think it was WFAN. They asked if he'd consider a totally off the board pick citing some NBA hires or something and he said he doesn't think he'll seriously consider anyone who hasn't been a head coach before, either in the NHL, AHL, foreign pro league or NCAA. They asked again later if he'd consider Messier and he said no again because he doesn't expect to really consider anyone who hasn't been a head coach.

    Years ago, I remember on this very board I mentioned this exact concern. I thought and still think there is/was something off with a guy behind the bench that simply looks like he doesn't care getting beat on the ice.

    I was told that he, and I'm paraphrasing here, surely yells a lot when he's in the locker room.

    Take it for what it's worth but Renney just pissed me off for that very reason and yes, I know it's irrational.

    Stevens did coach though. Remember when him and Oates did that Co-Coach thing a few years ago?

    In any event, remember that Larry did spend time working for the Devils organization in the mid-late 80s (if you watch the Koharski/Schonfeld altercation on YouTube, Larry is one of the guys holding Schoney back and he's mentioned it in his columns a few times) so he has ties with a lot of though Lamriello guys and sees their success/leadership as positives sometimes over the practicality of the situation.

    Carpinello also said the Rangers aren't crazy about Keefe/Tippett. He's still a very reliable source having covered the team since 1978.

    If we're not considering Phil Esposito or Jean-Guy Talbot as replacements, I think we're going to be fine.

    I'm not sure Hakstol is really human, he might be a fairly clever automaton, given away by the poor range of emotion and inability to speak a sentence that doesn't sound pre-recorded

    When reading Brooks you have to separate NYR leaks from Larry's agendas. Usually any info pertaining to people living in the area who may be a good candidate is from those people. The Avery stuff, Kovalchuk, etc, that's him helping out friends.

    Which is how we know this is a Larry agenda and not NYR. He loves Robinson and wrote years ago trying to push him as our next coach. Well, neither one of these guys are happening, so you target the heir apparent.

    Only two teams are in the market for a head coach.

    Generally, I agree. But this year's playoffs are so much fun. The Sharks-Ducks series and Vegas versus Kopitar one are very enjoyable.
