Dallas Eakins (Toronto, AHL) is pretty well thought of in the leafs organization; I'm not sold he's more than a great development coach though.

Penguin fan here..John Hynes down in WBS will probably get a shot due to the success of former WBS head coach Dan Bylsma..also, although he is already a former head coach, Tony Granato is probably going to be getting a second shot sooner or later..the guy gets rave reviews from the rest of the coaching staff and players alike.

He sucks as a head coach, he found his niche as an assistant and he should stick with it.

You mean third shot?

Can't think of any coaches that got a third chance to be a head coach after being replaced after 1 season behind the bench twice.

Todd Richards was the WBS coach before Bylsma...read into that what you will.

On a side note, if Richards didn't leave to be an Asst.Coach in San Jose during the summer of 2008 then he most likely gets the Penguins job that went to Bylsma. Gotta wonder how things would've turned out then.

Haviland from the Hawks is one of the most in demand coaches in the NHL not in a head position. I'd strongly consider firing Q and promoting him but the Hawks wouldn't do that. Not that Q is a bad coach, just makes some really confusing decisions at times that don't produce results.

Torchetti's actually far from a rookie. He has had two short stints as an NHL Head Coach even: 27 games with Florida in 2003-04 and another 12 with LA in 2005-06.

He would have gotten fired and replaced by Bylsma who would still have been coaching in WBS I believe?

Gerrard Gallant in Saint John

Jacques Beaulieu deserves all the credit for building that team though.

Both will be coaching in some way or another in the NHL or AHL within a few years.

Yeah, I was going to say Dallas Eakins in Toronto. Look at the turnaround he got out of Joe Colborne.

As a Blues fan I can sympathize with this from when Q was here. On the flip side, and I've never looked into this with Coach Q, but often those weird decisions will lead to wins. They only look bad when they don't work. Tony LaRussa was the poster boy for this in the MLB.

Yeah, his playing of Scott on D is something I strongly oppose but they win more of those games than I expect them to. Maybe the rest of the D group plays more focused when they know they have to carry Scott? Who knows, but you make a good point. Ray Emery on the other hand, he's totally wrong. The guy stinks no matter how much goal support he gets at home against bottom feeders. You could put me in net and the Hawks win 20-19, doesn't mean it was a good move.

I have been very impressed with Mike Yeo so far as a rookie coach.
