Lemaire interested in Devils' job?
Former Wild bench boss Jacques Lemaire appears to be intrigued by the available head coaching position in New Jersey, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Lemaire, who won the Stanley Cup with the Devils as a coach in five seasons with the team from 1993-98, might even call the team to inquire about the job, previously held by Brent Sutter.
"If (Devils GM Lou Lamoriello) doesn't call, and I want it, it's me that's going to call," Lemaire told the Pioneer Press. "I first have to ask permission from the (Wild) because I'm under contract (until July 1)."
Earlier this week, Lemaire turned down a consulting job with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 63-year-old confirmed to the paper that he has also talked with three other teams, none of whom are New Jersey.
"I want to know all what comes with it, you know," Lemaire said. "What type of job, the salary, where I'm going to work from, how long — this and that."
