And 2003, with AC, taking a team that was on its' way out of town to a title.

That's right. Wasn't Havi an assistant on the 01 team that made it to the finals also?

I frankly don't know enough about the available assistants/minor/etc. coaches, but I will say that I will be nervous until Lou announces the new coach or Ken Hitchcock gets another job. No defence-first retreads. We need to get an attacking coach and the personnel to play it properly.

interesting to note, he's never missed the playoffs during his seven-year minor league coaching career.

I admire his consistency. But is there any precedent for ECHL coaches making it to the NHL?

Right, Stevens should be coach ahead of MacLean.

I'm not a Mac supporter, but the suggestion is ludicrous. This thread has some real gems in it.

John Stevens has had success and coached in the NHL for a couple of years John Mclean hasnt.So yes i would take Stevens over Mclean clearly.

Ok so I'm watching Habs vs Caps on RDS and they told between the periods that Devils are looking to sign Guy Boucher.

What he accomplished at Norfolk was maybe his best work.

To answer the next question Davis Payne the new coach of the Blues lost to the Titans in the 04-05 conf finals.

Here's the list:

Former ECHL coaches working as head coaches in the NHL are Scott Gordon of the New York Islanders and Bruce Boudreau of the Washington Capitals while former ECHL player Dan Bylsma is head coach of the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Boudreau, who coached Mississippi for three seasons winning the Kelly Cup championship in 1999, was named NHL Coach of the Year in 2007-08 becoming the first former ECHL coach to receive the award. There are 18 assistant coaches in the NHL who were players or coaches in the ECHL.

And he was a rookie coach in the A this year too. Looking at what this guy has done, he's a fantastic power play guy. He had a lot of success in the Q as well. Boucher is certainly a guy whose hiring I would welcome.

If Buffalo's fool enough to can him the way Dallas did Tippet last year I hope we don't let the home run pick go by twice. I mean they overachieved as is, had the lead in Game 2 being up 1-0 in the series then Vanek got a high ankle sprain and they were screwed the rest of the series.

Listening to Dano as a commentator I liked the way he thinks, I would love to see him and Stevens behind the bench as assistant coaches with Johnny Mac as head coach I believe it is his time also.
Just watching Dano & Stevens energy would be worth the price of admission. I would hate to be a defenseman giving up the puck in our end next year having to answer to Dano and Stevens.

Maybe if some of our defense played with the tenacity of a Stevens or Daneyko we wouldn't be so soft
