Tikk wants to coach

Tikkanen says he wants to coach in the NHL. I imagine he'd have a lot to teach about 2-way play, the art of the pest, and winning. Obviously he's got old connections with Sather; I wonder if the Blueshirts would have an interest in opening a slot for him?

Tikkanen has been coaching Frisk Asker over here in Norway the last couple of years. He`s enjoyed limited success with the team, who quite frankly isn`t a very good one. However the players on the squad seems to love him and the way he coaches so he might be doing something right. Tikkanen is also very strict, and at more than one occasion he scheduled nightly practices after a humiliating loss.

No. Like almost any coach Tikk would have to pay his dues. I'd like to see the Rangers offer him an assistant's position in Hartford. See what he's got and go from there.

I thought I read somewhere that Tikk was the player coach for some team in South Korea, (not Norway), and he was a good coach only he still had comunication problems.

Tikkanen speaking Korean is like trying to put out a fire with lighter fluid - i can only imagine!

He had been a player/coach in Korea. This year he took over the Frisk Tigers in the Norwegian Elite League. Apparently they want to sign him to another contract but he's holding his options open.

Why not?

Tikkanese = Stengelese

It worked for Casey.

Tikk and Nieminen would be too much crazy Finnish on our team.

i loved tikk as a player but i think he'd be a bad coach mainly because no one on the team would understand a single friggin word he said. he'd be barking orders on the bench and then everyone would just turn to each other with puzzled looks and say "what?" lol

Yeah, but you do know when he'd get mad. He'd lose his smile.

Whenever Tikk stops smiling is the time he is absolutely infuriated.

That would scare some players.

According to the Finnish press, he had some contacts with the Rangers about coaching a while back. It was posted on these boards some time ago.

I recently watched the MSG "Oh, Baby!" video documenting the 1994 season, and when he spoke his English really wasn't that bad. Maybe he's hard to understand when he's more animated and not having a regular conversation?

I think he'd be a great addition to the Ranger organization. He's got a lot of heart and passion and is well-loved by the fans. Hell, if he can coach in South Korea with the language barrier I'm sure he can coach anywhere!

apparently, his legal issues with the rangers are a thing of the past if he's had contact about wanting to coach.

and i believe he would be a solid addition to the organization in some capacity for sure. it's good to see the rangers bring back the guys who the fans appreciated for their hard work and good fundamental play like graves and ulffy and gernander for what he did in hartford.

It's not that he had a problem with the English language, it's that he had a thick as **** accent and talked 10 miles a minute.

Tiki talk is legendary. He uses three different languages at once. Finnish, swedoish and english. He also talks really fast if he wants to but usually he tries to slow it down in interviews and such. I think he could be a good addition to the Rangers' organization. However, I do think that he will be a part of the Rangers' coaching staff in the future in a few years time.

Id love Tikk, Graves and Beuke as our coaching staff, At least Beuke can teach our D to hit, same with Ulfie
