Assistant Coach Geoff Ward leaves NJ, goes to CGY

Recommended Posts

According to Elliotte Friedman, Geoff Ward is leaving the Devils and headed to the Flames to be Bill Peters' assistant.

He was mostly responsible for the power play here.

I liked Ward okay, I think they should be able to replace him fine but who knows.

I’m annoyed by people who spell Jeff “Geoff” anyway.

Good luck to you, Gee-Off.

I think that’s the British spelling.

To continue on Joe Mullen, all he did over the course of 9 years running the Philadelphia power play...Averaged 20.5% over those years good for 3rd among all teams, Washington and San Jose were 1 / 2. Philadelphia was 13th in POINTS% so they didn't take advantage of this PP.

I think MitB is close personal friends with him now, he can probably make it happen...

Ward's leaving is no great loss.  I am sure we can do better.  I'd bet there are more candidates out there.  Any more possibilities?

I thought we had a pretty good powerplay. Nothing incredible. Definitely could have been worse.

I'm pretty sure he was responsible for putting Taylor Hall on his off-wing on the powerplay this season. Which turned him from a news-worthy bad power-play winger, to one of the best in the league last year. Hate on him all you want, that's good coaching. 

Good luck in Calgary! The last time one of our coaches left to go there, it.... well, it didn't go all that well.

I'll ask him tonight. I plan on making the "big" move and asking him for beers after the game. Hope I don't screw up my words and accidentally offer fellatio. 

If I had a dollar for every time that happened....

Seems like a lateral move for him, no?

 

Vertical too, Calgary is slightly north as well as west. :P

In other news, there's now a spot on the staff for Mike Brown.

I don’t see it happening but if Elias wanted the job, I’d be really excited to see that happen. 

Me too, but I can’t see it just yet- I follow Patty on Instagram, and he seems to REALLY be enjoying retirement right now.

Not surprised. Patty is loving retirement right now. By staying in the Czech Republic, he can have his cake and eat it too. Can’t do that with an 82 game grind.
