Well with the amount of people who hate Andy Murray, I find it hard to believe that people would want to bring in the man he replaced.

And who's the coach of the NJ Devils AHL Affiliate you ask? It's Robbie Ftorek!!!

So what you say?

From ESPN's list of Greatest Replacement Coaches

3. Larry Robinson (New Jersey Devils, 1999-2000)
With just eight games remaining in the season, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello fired coach Robbie Ftorek -- an interesting move, considering the Devils had the third-best record in the NHL at the time.

Will the Devils come "full circle" here?

I sincerely doubt that he would take another job this year after resigning due to stress-induced head-aches.

Agreed, the thought is plain silly

I find it hard to believe you have a Stacy Farber icon

I don't think it very likely that he'll be looking for another active position in the NHL this year -but if he did, I'd LOVE to have him as an assistant coach.
My feeling has always been that he's a great assistant coach, and a pretty lousy head coach.
As a head coach he just expects every one of his players to have the same work ethic and desires he had when he played. It just isn't the case, and he lacks the psychological tools necessary to get everything that you can get out of his players.
On the other hand, as an assistant coach his job was mostly instructional. Teaching one-on-one and going through drills. In this position his experience and insight are invaluable. No mistake, Rob Blake is as good a defenceman as he is now because of playing and working with Larry Robinson.
Assistant coach is a position without the stresses that have brought him down, and gives him an opportunity to really put his experience to good use.
If he's at all inclined, I'd love to have him.

Robinson resigned because of the stress that was ruining his health.

Lamoriello has stepped onto the bench as the interim head coach.

Hmm -- assistant coach, you say? How was the Devils' power play...?

I'd gladly take Robinson as an interim head coach until the off-season (at which time DT would find someone else and Larry would slide down to assistant coach).

Puleese! He was the worst coach in Kings history. Check it out. Ever hear of the Peter principle? Too nice a guy to coach. IMO.

listening to phil esposito and some other hockey guy on xm radio today, larry robinson took the nj job as a favor to lou lamoriello after pat burns' cancer diagnosis in the middle of last season. they said he liked the position he had before as sort of a consultant with the devils organization, working a bit with the albany river rats.

learning all this, i find it highly unlikely he'd resume head coaching duties anytime soon.

hey, now he can focus more on his play-it-again-sports franchises...
