safest head coach job in the league?
 
Whe I think of Stable head coaching jobs I think Lindy ruff I was wondering if anyone else agreed that he would be the least likely coach fired or if they have another coach n mind.

My second would have to be dan Bylsma

digdug41982 09-13-2011 10:21 AM

In order:

1. Trotz
2. Bylsma
3. Babcock

KH1 09-13-2011 10:21 AM

Right now it's gotta be Claude Julien, no?

You'd think that he bought himself at least 3 years of complete job security with a Cup win.

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 09-13-2011 10:22 AM

Yeah, it's Julien.

trotz and Babcock up there for sure, Isn't trotz the only coach in predators history

Ron Wilson, he will serve as the Leafs coach even after he dies.

Blueline Bomber 09-13-2011 10:32 AM

Paul Maurice. Even if JR fires him, we'll just rehire him in two/three years.

Yep, he'll keep that job for as long as he wants it unless they start spending to the cap. If they do that, then expectations will be raised quite a bit. For now, they have to love how they've done given their budget, division and conference.

DG 09-13-2011 10:47 AM

I think it's Mike Babcock, 100%.

Eamonn* 09-13-2011 10:49 AM

Trotz.. he's been with the team since they were made.. doubt he'll ever be fired, just retired.

Auger 09-13-2011 10:53 AM

It's Babcock

FloydTheBarber 09-13-2011 10:55 AM

My vote goes to Babcock, Trotz has been there since the Predators inception, so I feel that with two basement seasons (after the decent sucess the Predators have had) he could feel the heat because of his long shelf life.

Babcock on the other hand, I feel could have a couple of basement dwelling seasons (assuming the roster is decimated by injuries) and not have a worry.

devin1487 09-13-2011 10:56 AM

There should be no way that Noel doesn't get a full season with the team

hatterson 09-13-2011 11:09 AM

Babcock and Bylsma are the two that jump out to me

Pi 09-13-2011 11:13 AM

I'd probably say Julien. Before Boston won the Cup fans wanted him gone after every shift :laugh: but he's easily got himself another 3-4 years.

Though Trotz/Ruff is much more secure overall. I think both coaches will quit on their own when the time comes.

Try #28 or 29....

skroob** 09-13-2011 11:15 AM

Tortorella is pretty safe, if for no other reason than (1) finding a replacement would require Sather having to do work, and thats not going to happen and (2) Dolan does not give a crap.

Saving Greiss 09-13-2011 11:19 AM

In no order...

Babcock
Trotz
Bylsma
Julien

Not a horrible list by any means. I think Tom Renney should be higher on the "safe" side of things. He isn't expected to win games, he is expected to keep most games close while developing the youngsters.

:huh:

The shot at MacLean doesn't bother me in the least- but how do you have Wilson as 2nd most likely? Have you seen the bullets he's already dodged- or rather that Burkie's thrown himself in front of?

Nice try.

Only thing that could knock Vigneault out would be to miss the playoffs. And even then, he'd probably get a pass.
