My other theory, and it's just personal, is that Groulx is going to coach Pheonix' AHL franchise. Charlie Henry, the greatest junior hockey mind in the country, still has ties to the Yotes and Gretzky. And I wouldn't be surprised if Groulx gets to coach the Yotes farm team.

Groulx groomed himself for the AHL very intelligently: he was asked to get more fluent in english (to prevent him from the Michel Therrien syndrome), and to get leanier (the guy was friggin huge). He did re-gain a bit of the weight he had lost, but he's not the big tub of lard he used to be. He went to seminars, went coaching the under 18, assisted Sutter at the Russian series last summer, etc. He's got a hefty resume.
