Like Nashville and Carolina with Muller.

Not to mention the difficulty filling the spot mid-season.
Whoops my bad, that makes Stevens as interim option more likely.

Mark Morris deserves to be the coach of the Kings.

Tony Granato is who I want. I don't think we can just take him from the Penguins though, I think that would have to happen over the summer or something.

Bob Boughner? I'd love for us to hire Randy Carlyle, too bad the article says they're not looking at him.

Craig MacTavish? Paul Maurice? I wouldn't mind any of these guys, even John Stevens, the players just need a new face, some new blood. Murray's too old

lolwut? How so? It would make sense if most of our players had come through the system or had been coached by him for years, but that's not the case.

Martinez, Voynov, Bernier, Quick, Westgarth, Lewis are really the only guys that had been coached by Morris for a long period of time. Was Morris the head coach of Manchester when Brown was playing there?

Seeing as how you guys always pick from the Oiler tree, Im going to guess Mact.

And he will have you reminiscing about the good times you had with Murray sooner rather than later.








Joking aside, I think the Kings will go with Stevens in an interim role. If he is successful the rest of the season, which for me would be winning a playoff series, the job is his, if not, the Kings hire someone else in the summer.

He deserves a shot. I cant think of anyone that's more qualified. He knows management, he knows a few players, and i'm sure he knows the team very well. He's worked hard in Manchester and deserves this golden opportunity. I'm a firm believer in hard work and he has shown that in Manchester.

Me too. And I dont like it much.

Not a very classy way for your coach to find out he is done.

Reading about it in the paper?

While he is still the coach?

Pfffft.

I wonder if he knows, or not. If he's in Boston chances are he hasn't heard about the story, since it leaked around 3am back there. Has he already been told he's being let go? Did he even go to Boston? So many questions....

Carlyle would be a great fit for this roster. I like Granato but I thought he didn't want to be a head coach anymore.

Wouldn't surprise me if Dean goes after Jeff Daniels.

Contrary to popular belief, and Herby, Dean wants the Kings to play an exciting brand of hockey; similar to the 05-06 Hurricanes, which Daniels was the assistant coach of.

While Edmonton and Philadelphia might be DL's favorite organizations to pull staff/players from, Carolina is his 3rd favorite (Williams, Johnson). Daniels is currently the coach of the Hurricanes AHL affiliate and one of the top coaches in the league.

Unfortunately, he's also the Charlotte Checkers general manager, so, I don't know how available or even willing he would be to drop everything he has going on in Charlotte to be an NHL coach.

He was passed over by Carolina when they fired their coach earlier this season after most of their fans expected him to be their next coach. He's been loyal to them but most guys want their shot in the NHL and if Carolina passed over him to do so, he's most likely going to have to do it with another organization. He too is my pick.

What about Gerard Gallant???

Quote:
Gerard Gallant was introduced as the third head coach in Saint John Sea Dogs history on April 24, 2009.

In his first season behind the bench in the Port City, Gallant led the Sea Dogs to a franchise record 53 wins and 309 goals scored, earning Saint John both the Jean Rougeau Trophy as QMJHL regular season champions and Luc Robitaille Trophy as the league’s top offensive squad. The Summerside, P.E.I., native was awarded the 2009-10 Ron Lapointe Trophy as QMJHL Coach of the Year and the Brian Kilrea Trophy as CHL Coach of the Year, as he took the Dogs to the President’s Cup final.

Gallant’s second season was even more successful, as the team tied the QMJHL record with 58 wins. The Sea Dogs won a second straight Jean Rougeau Trophy as regular-season champions, to go along with the Luc Robitaille Trophy as the top scoring team (club record 324 goals) and the Robert Lebel Trophy as the best defensive team (club record 165 goals against). Gallant again won both the QMJHL and CHL Coach of the Year awards, this time leading the team to its first President’s Cup championship, a six-game triumph over the league’s most successful franchise, the Gatineau Olympiques, in the final. Saint John then won three of four games at the MasterCard Memorial Cup, including the final over the host Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors, to become the first Atlantic Canadian team to win the trophy in its 93-year history, capping a memorable season in Saint John hockey history.

Gallant has done a nice job after his CBJ-era (Fired 2007)... I vote for him or John Hynes (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton)!
