Jim Johnson: New Assistant Coach, Woods out

TSNBobMcKenzie: I know some in WSH media are reporting Calle Johansson as new asst coach. I am hearing it is Jim Johnson, not Calle. Stay tuned.

Former Capital, former coach with Tampa Bay/Norfolk. Strong developmental background.


EDIT:

It's Official:

@Adam_KOL

"RT @kcarrera: Via text, General Manager George McPhee says Jim Johnson will be joining Dale Hunter's coaching staff not Calle Johansson."

wonder in what capacity? kypreos says bringing someone on to help -- sounds like "consultant". that goof from csn says "assistant coach." nothing from the beat folks.

i like callejo. he was always one of my favorites. alzner reminds me of him. simple, mobile, smart, not overly physical. calle i guess had a little more offense. but he should help out the boys positionally, for sure. assuming, of course, he can coach.

I saw from another tweet that it's to help with the Young Defense ala Orlov Carlson and Alzner?

Can't find it now.




@TSNBobMcKenzie just tweeted:

Hmm, Interesting.

if i had to place money on gormley or bobby mc, i know where my money is. of course, bob's been wrong before. in any event, i think it's positive they're letting dale bring in his own people.

SergeyKocharov: The Washington Capitals have named Jim Johnson the teamís assistant coach, replacing Bob Woods.

I wonder if woods felt some loyalty to bb or "the system" that he didn't feel he could effectively coach. Seems weird not to have happened at same time. Maybe Johnson has to tie loose ends.

Maybe he and Bruce are lining up their own gig elsewhere.
