As they say every coach has an expiry date.

I think you guys would be lucky to get AV as a coach. He has a very good record in Vancouver. He would get your top players to play well for him for at least a few years. Most Canuck fans just don't like how he deals with younger players and putting them on a short leash...one wrong play and thats it.

But I do believe he and your team would do very well together. He certainly wouldn't destroy any players in the media.

Ok so best case scenario Detroit loses tonight and Babcock says he is interested in a new challenge.

Ask your Dad for a hit on whatever he's smoking, because it's obviously some good ****

Stop if it was the players that 'forced' Sather's hand, will they be consulted about the new coach so that it doesn't happen again? Do we have a case of 'the inmates running the asylum'?

Interesting times in ranger land

Not to familiar with Eakins. Anyone got a scoop on him and why/if we're interested in him? A fresh face would be good but I see us going with AV.

Honestly, is Keenan more insane than Messier?

The team that lacks skill but have jam would fit him best. He would've been great as any coach in the movie Slap Shot.

Really quick, can someone explain to me how the greatest captain and leader in Rangers history can only garner 5% of the vote, less than even 'other'? Why the lack of love? Serious question.

The idea of Messier as a coach is like Atticus Finch compared to Keenan.

Messier has a bit of a reputation as an egomaniac, which isn't what any of us want to see in our coach.

If I was Slats, I would ask Lou. Devils always seem to hire good coaches.

I mean, as crazy, out of touch, and dumb of an idea as it is, he's still a cup winning coach, as opposed to Messier, who has no experience behind the bench.

Because he's not a coach.

Meh, Keenan is barely articulate anymore. I still don't get how he got a KHL gig.
