I'd be pleased. He's got a wealth of experience both from his playing days (5 cups with the Oilers) and has spent the last 12 years as an NHL asst. coach. And, he played defense, that's a plus if he's the guy who's going to look after the defense. Nothing I hate more than a former forward managing the defensive aspects on the bench.

Would love to see him here. Loved how he coached in Edmonton.

Should be a great mentor for Bogosian. He could teach him a thing or two about maximizing talent, Huddy was a very sound defenseman despite having average physical attributes.

Interesting point, Guerzy. Wonder if that had something to do with Torchetti and Bogosian clashing in Atlanta (Torchetti was a winger in his playing days)?

Perhaps. It just never makes sense for me, whether it's at the NHL level or OHL level. If you're going to have a guy manage your defense, why would it ever be a forward? Unless of course it was a forward who truly understood the defensive fundamentals of the game, I can see that. Even so though, most forwards even if they are good defensively still aren't 100% familiar with defensive positioning and all that goes with it (2 on 1, 1 on 1, 3 on 1, etc). The only guys in my opinion that truly think like defenseman (in all aspects of the game), are defenseman.

Now, i'm not saying if you're an asst. coach in order to succeed you must have played the position. There are many who never did and are still successful. However, at the end of the day, I myself would rather have a former defenseman take on the role of managing the back end.

Huddy as assistant coach?

If this is true, it is FANTASTIC news for the Jets and guys like Bogosian. He really helped develop the Oilers blueliners when he was there, teaching blocking, PK, and positioning.

From what I've heard from our Atlanta guys on the board, Bogo's biggest failings are positioning, defensive smarts. The good news is that can be taught, and Huddy is the guy to do just that. I bet that's exactly why they are going after him

The more good coaches we surround our players with the better. I do agree that both Bogo and Buff could really use a little work on their positional play, not a knock on them but there is always room for improvement.

It doesn't hurt to bring in a coach with a Stanley Cup ring.

I'd fully support this if it were to happen.It is just speculation at this point and I guess with so many personnel changes etc. since the move from Atlanta, there will be a ton of speculation up until training camp

On a side note, I recall shortly after TNSE acquired the team there was some speculation about Kris King joining the Organization. I believe it was Dreger that had mentioned that. Any word on what his position was going to be and if it is still being discussed?

I like it. I also like the point made regarding a person with a defensive background coaching defenseman vs forwards.

Thought i'd tinker with the name of the thread and use it as a place to discuss the asst. coaches, sounds like some news could break here in the next week or two.

For those who have been hoping 5-time Stanley Cup defenceman and 12 year asst. coach Charlie Huddy gets the call to manage the defence, it appears as though you'll get your wish.

Speaking of coaches, the Jets aren’t ready to unveil Claude Noel’s staff just yet, but the staff is expected to include Charlie Huddy, who would run the defence.

“With the rounding out the coaching staff, when that happens, there’s going to be a lot of leadership that’s going to be there, both inside the room and surrounding the room,” said Cheveldayoff.

I would love to see Huddy here coaching the D. A great wealth of experience.

I am not as excited to read that Tim Hunter is being considered as a candidate for the forwards coach. I don't know why, because he has a wealth of experience. But something in me would rather have someone in that role that possibly had a drop of skill. What advice can Hunter give Kane, or Little regarding scoring?

It's kind of weird to think that way because it's not like all coaches need to be former players. There is just something about a guy that had no skill, teaching our young skill players that makes me uneasy.

Jet, I agree. --- see what I did there?

No, seriously, I do though. A great hire it would be. The experience and knowledge from both playing the position and coaching it the last 12 years would be a fantastic addition.

I wonder who’ll we end up having as a goaltending coach. Maybe we could steal Essensa from Boston?
