God I hate John Stevens the NHL coach.
Ok cool. I'm not sure what Mac-T's contract situation is (didn't he get an extension after the cup finals run?). I would welcome him here because as I said, he instills that work ethic that I believe has been missing here for a while. Hitch was a good systems coach, Stevens is a pawn as far as I'm concerned, but no one is getting these guys to sacrifice and work until their legs fall off. That's what I want to see. It's my biggest reason for wanting Brent Sutter. I think Mac-T is capable of that as well.

Other than him, there aren't many (if any) coaches I would really want here next year that are currently employed (since you've now shifted my focus ).

It seems as though Stevens will be around next year and I get the feeling someone will grab Burns in the meantime.

There was good reason at the time why Quinn was suspended for life from the NHL for conduct detrimental to the NHL by Zeigler.

Quinn has the ethics of a lizard... and that is being unkind to lizards.

If Detroit blows out in the playoffs again, I could see Mike Babcock being a possibility. I can't imagine that the Red Wings wouldn't have any heads roll if they got bounced like they did last year.

The Wings will go as far in the play-offs as Hasek can carry them.

However as they are Western Conference team with the attendant travel problems and the post-season is rife with back-to-back games, it will be interesting to see how Hasek holds up. His last few seasons would not be cause for great optimism.

Head coach choices. Burns and Sutter. I prefer Sutter. Richards and Carter, Downie played under him in WJC.

A big hell no to Quinn and I do not want Babcock.

He sure did. Four years. And considering his relationship with the GM, there'd have to be a pretty big bump in the road for him to ever get fired.
