Who might be our next Goalie Coach?

We do have have connected people here on HFBoards. Who do you think might replace Allaire? Someone from the Marlies? An ex-Leaf like Joseph? Potvin? Could we steal Ranford from LA?

Who's available?

What do you think?

According to Allaire, we already have two others.

So might just be one of those fellows taking the 'head goalie coach' spot then.

I said that kind of cheekily.

I feel like Allaire was inferring our (defensive?) coaches might have been a little too hands-on for his liking.

From Mirtle:
Quote:
Told that Rick St. Croix is a front-runner to replace Allaire as Leafs goalie coach. Currently he's with St. John's IceCaps in AHL.
Solid choice if it happens. Eddie Pasquale was a machine (at times) for the IceCaps last season. Nobody was expecting him to be that good.

has his own school!

http://www.rickstcroix.com/

wiki:



After retiring as a player, St. Croix became a coach. He served as an assistant coach for the Winnipeg Jets for the 1987-88 and 1988-89 seasons.[1] He was later named goaltending coach for the Dallas Stars where he won the Stanley Cup with the team in 1999.[3][4] He is currently the assistant coach for the Manitoba Moose AHL hockey club, a job he has held since 2008.[1]

so a possible connection to Carlyle?

I'd rather a Leaf beauty like CuJo, Belfour or Potvin.

You'd rather someone for their history with the team as opposed to the most suited?

Hasek. He can also be Reimer's backup.
I'm kidding, but at the same time, not really

Honestly I hope it's Curtis Joseph and as Nick Kypreos said he knows what it's like to be a Goalie that played in Toronto and what better person could Reimer learn from.

Well if it was Ed Belfour then both criteria would be met. He is both qualified and a former Leaf.

Billy Smith anyone? He can make sure we get truculence from the net with Reimer and Scrivens slashing at the ankles?

Seriously, I'd love a goalie with Billy Smith's approach. Too bad there are none like him today

I can be pretty motivational, the new coach should be me. I will just tell whoever is in net that for every goal they let in during a game we lose, my cousin gets to do a karate crotch shot.

I don't want Cujo as a coach. Technical goaltending was his weakness. He got by mostly off athletics, and you can't teach that.

Jeez, people - there's a big difference between being a goalie - including one who's played in Toronto - and being an effective coach. The ability to break down someone else's technique and offer constructive direction, the ability to put into words something you've done instinctively, and to be a guide and mentor are not enormously common among pro athletes, any more than they are common among the general population.

You want someone who's a good evaluator, teacher and motivator. It's a nice bonus if they've also "been there and done that" themselves, but it's hardly the primary requirement.

Man, teachers don't get any respect these days.

Cujo seems like a slight marketing ploy. I don't personally think he's the best person for the job because IMO you have to be a technical goalie in this league nowadays, and Cujo wasn't that (Yes there are exceptions but a) not the type of goalies we have b) changing styles doesn't seem productive).

Would he, though? Cujo was extremely athletically gifted but not exactly the strongest when it came to orthodox play. He made a career from being THAT good.

Does it really matter? A coach isn't going to come in and turn a mediocre goalie into a stud.
