That's a long shot... But the "next one" better have some experience and know how to coach young player (and devasted veteran)

Bob Hartley?
I mean why not?
I prefer to have a experienced coach than a coach with no NHL experience (MacLean)

Would help to have a list of the upcoming free agent coaches and upcoming interesting free agent assistant-coaches.

I want to see how the season plays out. See who wins the Calder cup, what assistants are available ect ect.

Bob Hartley is the best choice we can have..


Says who? I'm pretty sure interviews will determine who is the best for the opening.

I was hoping the capitals would fire Bruce Boudreau during their epic losing streak so we could swoop in and hire him...sadly, no such luck.

Who was that ex-chicago coach that everyone was talking about over the summer? Havelid?

Why would you want Systemless Bruce running the devils?

Hartley coached Kovalchuk for a couple of seasons so at least he has some much needed experience in that department.

Nope, that's the bum we traded Salmela for. You're thinking of Mike Haviland - http://blackhawks.nh...ge.htm?id=47144

My guess is Hartley. There's been some rumors that Hartley is in line but for a variety of reasons won't take over til after the season (probably because Vanderbeek refused to put another coach on the payroll for this year, but also probably to spare him from the mess). I personally like Haviland and think he deserves a shot.

:lol:

I dunno, I like the no bullsh!t attitude. I'm not a fan of these soft-spoken coaches we've had as of late. I guess I almost see him as an offensive-minded Pat Burns, forgive me if I have the completely wrong impression of the guy. I'm certainly no expert on the subject.

Ah yeah that was him, thanks

Couldn't agree more.

This guy was ridiculously out-coached last year in the playoff and it exposed him as one of the most over-rated coaches in this league.

How can you keep on the same game plan when the other team is blocking 50% of you shots and the other 50% is coming from absolute dead spots.

That's what I wanted to ask John MacLean.

Ken Hitchcock or Bob Hartley. Both SCC proven coaches that teach discipline and defense.

Bob Hartley would definitely be a good fit. Also hearing Ken Hitchcock as well.

I wanted to ask him why was he starring at the score-board all the time instead of calling a timeout or breaking a couple of sticks and throwing a couple of jelly jars.

haviland sounds like the next great coach (like TB's and CLB's this year) but i'm concerned you'd have another case of vets thinking they know more than the coach. although, hopefully the only vets left will be elias and white.

hartley, although a retread, seems like the safest choice.
