Claude Noel Officially Named Head Coach

Darren Dreger reports,

Quote:
DarrenDreger: Winnipeg is expected to announce its official name and new head coach at some point this weekend.
I know we have plenty of talk regarding this in the designated stickied thread, but I thought since this is the first concrete piece of information on a release time, it would be acceptable to create a thread and when the team name is announced, perhaps change the thread title as such.

If the admins disagree, then by all means we'll keep this in the other thread and perhaps just re-name it.

Did TNSE confirm or is this speculation on Dreger's part?

You've gotta figure that will be two separate press conferences. Those are both too major to squeeze into one.

Busy weekend. I'd expect to see one of the two before the draft.

I'll take a guess and say it will be Jets and the coach will be Haviland.

I dont think this is "confirmed". Dreger has been wrong before, but I definitely like the progress. I think when I see a release for TNSE I'll breathe a sigh of relief

good stuff, I'll be shocked if it's called "Manitoba XXXXXXX" The NHL website is called winnipeg.nhl.com right now, not manitoba.nhl.com. But we'll see of course.

Finally.

Gonna guess Mike Haviland for coach. They seem to like the Chicago organization a lot.

I hope it'll be the Winnipeg Falcons. The Jets have flown to Phoenix. Let them die there. I'll still have my memories and for goodness sakes - keep that old pic of the Queen in mothballs! I would expect Noel would be the new coach of the AHL team and the Chi asst coach would be the new head coach.

What the heck is taking so long to do this though?

I personally would prefer Haviland to Noel, but I think both would do an excellent job.

Noel is under contract with the Canucks, so he likely wouldnt be our coach in St. Johns. Unless he left the Canucks organization to take a job with our AHL affiliate but that seems like a latteral move to me. Plus when you consider the quality of the canucks farm team vs our farm team its probably in his best interest to not coach our AHL team.

I agree.

But one is the head coach, the other is an assistant coach.

No associate coach!

It also mentions in the TSN article that they will be giving out generic NHL jerseys to our picks in the draft on Friday... is it me or is that just a horrible decision by TNSE? If I were them I would've made this top priority the last week or two and made sure that the first person to throw on my jersey will be a special moment. What are they going to do just toss out shinny jerseys?

The Avalanche handed out black jerseys with the NHL crest on it during their first draft.

The Avs and Hurricanes both did it

It only makes sense, doesn't it? If its going to be announced on the weekend, just do it Friday for the draft so when the selection is made, it can be made by saying "The [team name ] are proud to select".. yada, yada, yada.
