I think personally the two best possibilities/fits for this team out there are Houda, the Bruins assistant, and Willie Desjardins from the Texas Stars.
Houda is a hard nosed guys who has been given a decent proportion of credit for how the Bruins have had such success recently. Apparently really defensively responsible but still like offence. He is arguably the assistant with the most chance of being a head coach in the NHL next due to it.
Desjardins just wins... in 9 seasons as a head coach in CHL and AHL has 1 losing season, his first, and has made the playoffs every season as a head coach. It was not like he took over a superstar CHL team in the Medicine hat Tigers either, and he turned them into a team that won two memorial cups after not making the playoffs for 6 years. He has also been an assistant in the NHL before with Dallas. Apparently is one of the most tactically knowledgeable coaches around and great at adjusting, has a track record at developing players. Also after losing out on the Dallas job I imagine he would be available in the Flyers came calling.
