First time I have seen his name in the news about him as possible option for the head coaching position of the Rangers.

Zipay is talking about Vancouver

Tortorella, hired in February 2009, is just one candidate in Vancouver, which also was interested in Eakins. The Canucks already have spoken to former Stars coach Glen Gulutzan.

Ruff, Kings assistant coach John Stevens, and ex-Lightning coach Guy Boucher also appear to be under consideration.

Where are they going? The Phoenix situation has been the same for the last 3-4 years. Where are the Coyotes going? Nothing has changed.

If the Blueshirts wish to hire Vigneault as John Tortorellaís successor behind the bench, their general manager needs to move reasonably quickly before Dallas makes an offer to the former Canucks coach.

The Stars arenít in the same win-soon altitude as the Rangers, but Vigneault not only has a long personal relationship with recently hired Stars GM Jim Nill, but is hardly likely to wait if that means being odd man out in a game of musical chairs
Quote:
Of course, either complicating or simplifying the issue for Sather is Mark Messier. Understand if Sather believes that Messier is the best man to lead the Rangers to the Stanley Cup in this window that would seem open for the next two or three years for which Henrik Lundqvist could be counted on to remain at his peak, public opinion wonít have the slightest sway on his decision-making process.

The hope would be, though, the Rangers and Sather would make their decision before another club makes it for them.
http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/range...ontent=Rangers

Lundqvist should bolt if Messier is the coach. Talk about wasting years on your career. The Rangers want to sign Lundqvist to a long term deal this summer.

I heard Jim Nill on NHL Live on Monday. He is not in a rush to hire a coach.

Sather needs to hire someone with experience. Alain Vigneault.

If they hire Messier, they might as well trade Hank and Nash. If they are going to take 2 steps back with the coach, they might as well do the same with the team.

I don't see Messier getting the job, but you never know with Sather.

Don't know if this has been posted here, but I found this on the pen's board:

http://triblive.com/mobile/4179341-9...enguins-bylsma

Quote:
During the meeting, Shero made a strong push for approval on an extension for Bylsma, who is set to enter the final season of his contract.

Shero wanted the coaching situation settled — at least Bylsma's status — so he could start finalizing a long-term contract with center Evgeni Malkin before turning to potential new contracts for winger Pascal Dupuis and defenseman Kris Letang.

Shero also identified parameters of the commitment necessary to keep Malkin — about $10 million annually, all of which would count completely against the salary cap.

Ownership has authorized Shero to keep Malkin at almost any cost.

Shero had a face-to-face meeting with J.P. Barry, Malkin's agent, Monday. Barry described the meeting as productive.

In annual player-exit meetings Sunday, Bylsma received endorsements from Malkin and captain Sidney Crosby.

If AV bolts to Dallas, then I think it would be imperative to wait until July to interview Tippett (if available). I dont care if hes building 7 houses in Phoenix, if the Coyotes dont have a place to play and things go sour, he'll want out, as will Mike Smith. But its obvious Tippett wants to stay there and the City of Glendale needs to get this deal done. In the end, I think they do and Tippett sweats it out. But again, if AV is hired I think you have to wait and see to be sure.

Each day that passes increases the likelihood that Blysma retains his job with the Pens, so I believe he's out of the mix. The Rangers havent even met with Ruff yet.

I think the Rangers need to jump on Vigneault now, if they feel the interview was a success. If he goes you are looking at Ruff, Messier, Boucher, Stevens, etc as the "top" candidates for Slats.

We really don't want to get into a situation were the talent pool decreases and the idea of Messier appears less of a long shot. I've felt from the start that no candidate has been a real slam dunk for the Rangers. Tippet is my favorite choice, but I think AV is the strongest candidate and the Rangers should get him sooner rather than later.

If the Rangers wind up hiring AV, they'll need to do it in the next week or two.

If the Rangers are serious about interviewing Messier, what is the rush? Where else is Messier going to coach?

They've said they're going to take their time when it comes to the coach search (although I don't know how you can take your time when you have a self-imposed deadline). Maybe Sather's play is to miss out on the likes of Ruff and Vigneault and Bylsma and Tippett never become available, Sather can then hire Messier.

Possibly (Probably?) will need to pull the trigger on AV by the end of the week.

It's conflicting. In Sather's press conference about relieving Tortorella, he said specifically that he'd like to have the new coach hired before the draft.

Now the beat writers talk about taking their time.

Its June 12th. They don't have that much time. They have a couple of weeks max. If they want the new coach involved in the draft (drafting, trades) and involved with free agency, they really have maybe less time then that. They need to have the coach hired, allot him time to pick his staff and get them hired. Then the organization needs to be together to discuss the direction, philosophy, what players are needed, so on and so forth.

That needs to happen BEFORE the draft, where the changes to the roster will start to happen.

Not to mention there are a handful of teams out there vying for the services of the same available coaches. Sit back too long and another team snatches those coaches. If the Rangers want Vigneault then it needs happen no later than the end of the week. Other teams are hot for him as well.

Take their time? There really is no time to be wasting.

If Vigneault is their guy, they need to pull the trigger before someone else does. And someone else will.

I sure as hell hope not. I am guessing Torts goes to Dallas. Just a hunch. Tippett stays in PHX. Bylsma is let go and Ruff goes to Pitt. Vigneault or Stevens to the Rangers.

I think Bylsma stays in Pittsburgh.

Vancouver sees a short window and hires Torts.

Tippett stays.

Agree Vigneault or Stevens to the Rangers. Stevens, for some reason, interests me.

I never really got why Stevens was fired in the first place. He led the Flyers in one of the quickest turnarounds I've ever seen from an organization (of course, Holmgren's retool helped there as well). 26 games into a season in which the Flyers weren't bad, just mediocre, he gets fired. Maybe the lure of Laviolette being on the market was too tempting?

I always thought he was a very good, intelligent coach. A real strategy based one, too.

And he's been around success in LA.

I think it was the lure of Laviolette and his no ******** attitude. Also, I feel the Carter and Richards late night soirees were laid at the feet of Stevens moreso than the players which may have been unfair.

Funny, isn't that supposedly part of the reason Carter and Richards were traded? I guess Laviolette didn't do much in that regard either.

As much as we definitely have our own issues as an organization, I can't help but chuckle at some of the dysfunction that goes on in Philadelphia.

Yeah, and I think Laviolette came and in and tried to put a stop to it. People clashed, they chose to go with Pronger and the coach.

I'm sitting here pondering the coaching situation and realized that my thinking really hasn't changed.

The only name that evinces a strong, negative, reaction is Messier and that's wholly because of the experience issue. Not that his name has come up much, but I'm not much interested in Paul Maurice either, but wouldn't be all that upset if he was the guy. I liked Renney a ton when he was here, but I'm not that interested in rehashing old coaches.

AV? Fine. Ruff? Fine. Stevens? Fine. Tippett? Fine. Bylsma? Fine. Boucher? Fine. Gulutzan? Fine.

I'm even fine if we're looking outside the NHL at guys like Hynes or Blashill or Samuelsson.

None of these potential coaches will be exactly the same as they were in their last jobs. Every single one of them seems just as likely to me as any other to be successful here.
