olie would be interesting.
mact would be realistic.

i wanted hunter. so what do i know.
I agree Txpd. I voted for Mactavish. He has the cups as a player and nearly won the SC with a mediocre Oilers team. He can teach the defensive game as well as offensive. Not only can he do that, he can teach these guys faceoffs. I would like to see Johnson retained and Evason gone.

They should be able to get Doug Jarvis up into the rafters.

If you're looking for someone defensive minded and that commands respect Guy Carbonneau stands out for me.

We need a coach that doesn't look at a giveaway and say zomg bench him!

Ovechkins 2 best years as far as giveaways were this year and last year, this year the lowest at 51.

Why do so many people think that Carbonneau is a defensive coach? He was a defensive player, but as a coach the two most noticeable things about his teams were crisp transition and deadly PP.

The 2008 Canadiens had 262 GF, 1st in the NHL. 24.2% on the PP, 1st in the NHL.

The 2007 Canadiens had 245 GF, 16th in the NHL. 22.8% on the PP, 1st in the NHL.

He is my top choice to turn this team around and have them playing to their strengths again.

You have to have the puck in the first place in order to give it away.

You definitely would not have seen that had Bykov still been coaching Russia.

His comments a year ago after the Caps/TB playoffs were over, RUS Coach Bykov to SovSport: "We won't invite Semin under any circumstances. His play in the last Washington game was very weak."

I don't care who coaches as long as they have an offensive scheme with aggressive forechecking. I don't want to watch 82+ 1-goal games next season.

Some of the locals (Vogel, JP) have been talking up Mike Sullivan as an option once NYR's season is over. He does seem like a good option. He has the intensity, experience and the youth to be a long haul option potentially.

Does seem like an interesting choice with high upside. Hadn't really considered him before, but I wouldn't be upset if he were hired.

Berube? We would be the toughest team in the league!!!1!1!

I sure hope whoever we bring in is respected enough to coach the team his way, not George's. And I hope they figure out a breakout system for us. The chip, the avert icing touch at center, and the stretch just aren't getting it done.

Watching both AO's and Backstrom's one on one videos with Vogel the question was asked on the type of style of play and both essentially came across with the opinion of a balanced O/D system. I agree. You know if one is the coach of an expansion team with a lack of talent a #hunterhockey system would be fine. With this team? NO.

Well to be fair would you have thought this was how a 'Hunter team' would play...?

Semin would have shot BB or Hunter over the glass, or turned them over for an odd man break the other direction!

Exactly. If the Blue Jackets played that way I could completely understand it. Heck with some breaks that result in some confidence, good special teams, and decent goaltending and a team like the Blue Jackets could win enough games playing that style to challenge for a playoff spot IMO. And so could the Caps...

Nobody could get BB over the glass.

If Eakins wins the Calder Cup with the Leafs, his stock will undoubtedly be quite high.

I still think the Flames will hire him.

Debunking the 'proven winner' myth in the NHL. Good read that also applies to Mike Shanahan.

Winning a star war might be the worst thing you could do for your organization.
Grow your stars [proven winners] internally; do not buy them on the market.
