I'd like to see Eakins get a shot. Fresh blood.

Meh, I trust Gorton to hire he right person. But that's assuming he has a hand in Sathers decisions. If not I'm afraid it's going to be Messier....

I don't know anything about this Eakins guys that everyone seems to be a big fan of... I get that HF is all about hyping up rookie players, but coaches too?

What system does he implement and why is he garnering so much praise?

He's connected to the Toronto Maple Leafs franchise. Toronto is all about hype. No way a guy like Eakins could handle New York. Not as his first NHL gig.

or Ron Smith

Seriously, just say NO Messier, Gretzky, Maurice, Vigneault, Ruff, Hartley, Crawford, etc.

Boucher, Eakins, or bust.

Back in 2004 during the last coaching search the front runner for the job was Jacques Martin. I don't want Martin to be the next coach but I wonder if he'll get an interview. We had some threads about Martin back in 2004. The Rangers offered him the job and he choose to go to Florida with Mike Keenan.

Again, I don't want Martin to be the next coach but he might be a name to keep an eye on.....

Realistcally, it will probably be AV...

Not Confident in Eakins at this point...

Would REALLY like to see Guy Boucher running the show... Like the 1-3-1 system and how it works with our speed guys for transitioning out of the zone.

I'm pretty sure Gretz, Mess, and Ruff are out...

Who else am I forgetting?

Brett Cyrgalis mentioned that Lindy Ruff built a great resume during his time with Buffalo. What exactly is he basing that comment on? Being there 14+ years? Isn't that more an example of staying power more so than success?

Ruff did accomplish a lot with less resources. Not sure why people are bashing Ruff. Because he didn't win a Cup? His teams hit bad luck in the years they were the higher seeds. Their defenses just couldn't stay healthy and the ownership was too cheap to get him the depth pieces he needed.

No, I imagine the people who are not as high on Ruff as you are is basing that more on the fact that he missed the playoffs as many times as he made them in his 14+ seasons.

At first I was dead against AV.

1 cup run, great regular season, and a lot of post season meltdowns. So I'm like, what's so spectacular about that? Right?

But then I got thinking.

This year and last year, would we have even beaten the West Conference teams if we did get to the SCF? The Devils beat us pretty good and LA plastered them; and this year The Caps beat themselves and Boston pimp slapped us.

Other than Tippet, AV does have the edge in knowledge of beating those teams if we can get that far. And Gorton & Clarke seem to be drafting us to resemble Boston and those West teams...Big, Fast, Agile, & Character.

I mean. The SC playoffs are a crap shoot no matter what when it comes to our Conference, but facing the ultimate road to a Cup win pretty much goes through Chi, Det, LA, or SJ and those teams have creamed us the past couple years we matched up against them in the regular season and their systems are top notch and executed very well by the personel.

Small market team who consistently lost his good players? That doesn't count?

When the majority of the league make the playoffs, not really. The Devils lost a lot of top players a long the way.

Drury, Tallinder, Briere all in a few years. NJ lost one forward who wasn;t even their best one, and didn't make the playoffs. Nashville lost their #2D, same thing. (injuries probably had something to do with it though) I don't think Ruff is to blame here, he had a few good runs.
