Jacques Martin I'd be interested in, but he's not an ideal coach with regards to playoff hockey. His teams in Ottawa faltered plenty of times under his watch. If people are annoyed with Laviolette, they'll grow to loathe Martin.
Doug Houda would be an interesting choice because of the work he's done with Claude Julien in Boston. He's had a good career as a player and as a coach, so I think he might be able to get through to the guys.
Finally, Terry Murray. I'm not sure what to think. He should have never been fired during his first go around in Philadelphia because he called out his team and told the truth - they were gutless. Too bad the Lindros and Desjardins cried when he said it. It was the truth. If Clarke hadn't been so quick to over react, he would have seen that Murray was telling the truth. As well, you can also say that Murray had those teams over achieve. There was no way that they should have gone to the Stanley Cup finals in his final year, especially when you consider they were horrid on defense, the goaltending was sub par and mediocre and they had one line plus one player carry them. Part of me would like to see Murray come back and see what he can do with the forward depth that is here as well as the defense.
