re-signing, not resigning, right? :P

it would be really cool if they also announced the resigning of Elias at the press conference

It's rumored that it's between Dave Lewis and Andy Murray. Lewis would promote an offensive style, that would entice Patty to resign.

Im not sure about Lewis. He was Bowman's right hand man. But, I do remember some Red Wings players had some issues with his philosophy.

thats because they're the Red Wings...

This is amazing it's 40 minutes until the press confrence and know one knows for sure who the coach will be. This has to be a sports first.

I've always heard he isn't strict enough. The team doesn't need another Larry Robinson type coach.

The problem Lewis had in Detriot was that he always played the nice guy while assistant coach under Bowman, and the same group of players sorta ignored him when he tried to play tough guy as head coach because they knew it wasnt his real nature. That wings team was very undiciplined, and while they had regular season sucess when push came to shove, they didnt listen to the coaching staff and make the adjustments they needed to.

Personally seeing that happen would put me off to having Lewis as the head coach here. This team still needs someone who kicks ass and takes names. We all saw what happened under Larry with no accountability.

Nothing official yet, but don't be surprised if it's on one of the MSG networks and/or SNY.

I think Lewis gets hired on the condition that MacLean can stay on to keep 'em in line.

One of the requisites I have is that the coach touts an attacking style of hockey. All the teams weve seen make it to the Conference and Stanley Cup Finals play aggressive styles in the offensive zone with forechecking even when they dont have the puck.

If it is Lewis, Id be a little disappointed too, I mean I know hes got some hockey acumen, but hes not like a spring chicken and neither he or McLean would deliver the day to day discipline that is needed.

Oh, I think it's awesome, it keeps people into. Hockey should do this with every coach.
