Wonder if the report is only half right and he gets a HC gig but for the Penguins and not the Hurricanes, how quickly the sentiments on this board about his tenure here will be.

He was traded to Detroit for picks the 1st time.
He was an assistant coach in Hartford before he went to be Gretzky's assistant in Phoenix.

I guess I'm in the minority as far as his coaching skills. I wasn't overly impressed with what I saw this year. McD had a fantastic year but I thought that was more a result of AV's system than defensive coaching. Girardi was good early but not at the end. Staal and Stralman were up and down and Moore seemed to improve once the Rangers traded for Klein.

Good for him. As an assistant, you should be able to move freely when a head coaching position opens up. I just hope it is with Carolina and not Pittsburgh.

Ohhhh Yeaaaaah.


Welp. He keeps coming back, better. Maybe he replaces AV someday as HC after cutting his teeth in NC.

Also heard today that the Canes have asked LA permission to talk to their asst. John Stevens. Doesn't sound to me like they've made up their mind.

Those two statements seem to contradict themselves slightly, no?

No, considering the Rangers just played Pittsburgh in a playoff series, he would be privy to the Rangers game plan in the playoffs. I would think that inside information would be helpful if he became coach for Pittsburgh.

I think Pittsburgh will be for the next few years, a bigger threat to the Rangers than the Hurricanes.

Others have said it here, good for him but bad for us. Maybe Carolina owes us one in a trade later on down the line for giving him permission to talk to them haha

I understand Carolina's GM is a good personal friend of Ulf, then it should be a no brainer.

To replace him...Torts is available. Hire him? Then we should have a perfect balance within the coaching staff

Rimer: Ulf Meeting With Carolina Brass Today

Quote:
According to Josh Rimer, Ulf Samuelsson is in Carolina today to meet with Ron Francis and the Carolina ownership group.

Rimer says all signs point to Samuelsson getting head coaching job in Carolina and he expects an announcement within the next couple days.

Rimer also reports that the Penguins are interested in Willie Desjardins, as well as Ulf Samuelsson. That could have some impact on the Rangers, as Willie Desjardins was believed to be one of the two front-runners for the head coaching job in Vancouver, along with John Stevens (who received a promotion to stay in Los Angeles). The Canucks asked for permission to speak with Rangers’ associate coach Scott Arniel earlier this week, so if they strike out on Desjardins, they may turn their attention towards the Rangers’ second in command.

Could Ron Francis and Jim Rutherford be fighting over the same guys? Is it Peters in Carolina and Samuelsson in Pittsburgh or vice versa?

Bill Peters to Carolina.

Ulf to Vancouver now?

Will they take another former Rangers coach after their last debacle?

I don't think the Canucks are interested in Ulf. Penguins could hire him though.

He better not go to a division rival. I think Slats wouldn't let him out of his contract to coach there????
