Why would Nill tell any of the potential coaches what rank they are(or other coaches are)? Seems like a slap in the face, knowing they don't value you that high and your are the contingency plan. I mean technically any coach hired at this point is just a back up plan, Vigneault was our number one choice. "Hey Willie, we couldn't get any of our top 3 choices, so we'll settle with you", is what it screams to me. Putting forth a lot of confidence in them...

That's it, I assume it will get updated later. As of now it mentions about "Seth Jones" and then about Lecavalier.
They updated. Nothing new. He puts Ruff and Torts as likely top candidates for the job.

I didn't see the sincerity in his eyes...he's still holding out. Full, public, contrition or reeducation camp...his choice. Reeducation camp consisting of quality time with Brett Hull and Ed Belfour at a bar of their choice until they're convinced.

No idea who is second, i might have to ask or maybe she didnt say. Did not sound like willie was expecting a job offer though.

File this under the rumor category but i did not see much news in the way of coaching for you guys.
Very much a rumor considering yesterday I read that Don Maloney said the Coyotes and Tippett were pretty much done a contract, just finalizing the dollars on the contract.

So take that for what it's worth.

It'll be Ruff or Blashill.

Did they also see Ferris pass out on 31 flavors last night? I heard it was pretty serious.

Boom! I like the move, as long as he admits it was a good goal! Haha

Ruff. Now there are a slew of 'good goal' jokes.

Hooray! Even if Tortorella would have been appropriate, the perception would have been too much.

Hopefully this is a good fit.

The Star Telegram is running with the same story, so it's most likely true.

He does. He also covers the Stars though, so I can't see him putting up a guessing article.

Lites is now saying to tap the brakes and nothing is official yet, but he obviously slipped up.

Not confirmed, yet. Although, in my mind it's pretty much done.

Can't say I am disappointed but I would have preferred AV.
