well, we know the coach will be experienced, no more fliers on an AHL-coach either

Why is it that coaches with NHL experience are looked down upon as "retreads"? :noclue:

Not trying to make a case for anyone in particular but I don't see why experience should be treated like a bad thing.

I still want Mike Haviland and not because he is a local guy but because the guy is a winner. As a head coach in the AHL and ECHL he never missed the playoffs in 7 consecutive years while coaching 4 different teams(AC, Trenton, Norfolk, Rockford). Also won 2 Kelly Cups, one with AC and one with Trenton. As an assistant with Chicago he also won the Stanley Cup. Winning seems to be a very consistent thing for him.

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.

Haveland has less experience that JMac did. Why would you risk that? I think Carbaneau would be a Lemaire clone. I hate to say it but maybge hitch might be the right guy?
I really was hoping JMac would've turned out to be the next Joe Sacco, Boudreau, Guy Boucher etc. (came in with no nhl experience) Pete Debeor type
Is there any of these guys out there? How bout Don Lever? (Devs first Capt.)
Yes, Marty will probably have a say in a selection. The way the devs play the game is part of his success.
