Realistic Candidates

I don't think the organization would fire John Tortorella....YET. However, let's say if the team continues to perform without a pulse and are tuning Tortorella out by the trade deadline.....who are realistic candidates to replace him?

Everyone points to Lindy Ruff coming off Buffalo. I am not sure he would be the slam dunk everyone is thinking. He was after unsucessful in his recent years in Buffalo (missing the playoffs the last 3/5 years) and only appeared to have such long term job security due to the crutch him and Darcy Reiger used of lacking finances. As soon as solid ownership was put in place and they were given all the resources they needed both GM and coach failed to deliver (does Glen Sather transition from Edmonton to NY ring a bell?).

Who else is out there that could help this team? Specifically what kind of coach would the team need?
