Seems a reasonable hire, which is nice, as McPhee has a history of not always picking the best candidates.

The Kinghts are definitely an interesting story, it's fun to watch them be built.

At the end of the day they're not going to have many scorers, if any, so they have to keep games low scoring and tight and if they lose rather at least get the loser point.

He was hilariously bad with the coaches challenge at times though, i remember several that made me shake my head
What??? His record was great. You must be thinking of Rowe who I don't think won one!

They could add to this and their prospect depths with dman Austin Rook after he is done playing college at the the United States Military Academy Black Knights (ARMY).

Ok, if they could get Austin Rook, Jordan Knight, Dwight King, and Ben Bishop on the ice at the same time that would be incredible.

Too bad there's no Queen or Pawn just yet.

Travesty that Rowe fired him, but really good fit with LV

Feel bad for him, destined to fail and be fired before they are anything decent, but hey it's a paycheck.

I'm pretty sure most modern expansion teams showed significant loyalty to their first coaches.

I highly doubt they are going to sign a big UFA goalie, and instead go for a young 1A/1B tandem acquired in the expansion draft.

Good choice. Think he's a good, no-BS coach.

Jared Knight would be a perfect addition.
