After Mr. Sutter met with Media on his state of the Franchise Speech the Media walked away just as confused if not more. He refused to comment on the future of Coach Playfair or on the Contracts of Iggy and Kipper does that mean kipper and iggy are traded and Playfiar fired? Heck no it means that Sutter is not going half cocked and firing Playfair and jumping to any co...
From the team's website: http://flyers.nhl.com/team/app?articleid=316734&page=NewsPage&service=page John Stevens, who took over for Ken Hitchcock last season, will have some veteran NHL players serving as his assistants next season. Joe Mullen, who until this past season was the all time leading US born goal scorer, and Jack McIllhargy, former Flyer, will be his assi...
So for people like me who don't know a lot about the AHL coaches out there that may possibly become the next head coach of SJ, there was an article on http://www.sharkspage.com/ that gives a breakdown of three of the top contenders in the league: Kevin Dineen, Mike Haviland, and Roy Sommer. The one that stood out to me the most was Haviland. In the article is a link t...
It's been a couple days since we got the great news about the Sharks hiring of a new head coach, and now we have to wait until camp to find out what changes will be made. What we already know is that he's been coaching for 14 years (11 as a head coach, and 3 as an assistant) and that his teams have [i]never[/i] missed the play-offs, and even winning championships and Coac...
There was an article on Tuesday on the Sharks site announcing that the Development Camp will be taking place for the next 5 days at Sharks Ice in San Jose. Unfortunate for us, the camp is closed to the media and the public, to allow for the guys to work without feeling judged. McLellan will be there, but not on the ice. He will be observing and mentoring from a room abo...
For those of you who are not as up to date on the news coming out or going into San Jose, David Pollack of the Mercury News is reporting another name that was leaked for yet another possible assistant coach. If you read my previous blog, you would know that we've already heard of Trent Yawney out of Chicago, and Jay Woodcroft out of Detroit, and now we have Todd Richar...
As it has been rumored for the past week now, the names of the new assistant coaches in San Jose were officially announced today by Doug Wilson. Three of the names (Trent Yawney, Jay Woodcroft, and Todd Richards) were already leaked in the media over the last few days, but a couple new names were also mentioned in the press release. Of all the new additions, the one I'm ...

STOP THE MADNESS

Why is it so easy for teams to fire coaches? I mean, the moment the team starts losing its edge, it is always the coach that gets the ax before the gm. I think it is really hypercritical. Think about it - who is the guy who hired the coach in the first place? Now come on, what are you saying about yourself when you fire the person you hired? This kind of reminds me about...
Wouldn’t it be nice if just once Ron MacLean actually challenged one of Don Cherry’s outlandish assertions and made him support it with some substance? Seriously though, if you throw in a few Cherry-wanna-be’s, like Mike Milbury or Doug MacLean, the so-called expert analysis segment of your favourite hockey program is filled to the brim with unsupported rhetoric f...
The Penguins have made some changes in their coaching staff during this off season and based on last years sweep by the Bruins, we expect to see some of those changes reflected in how they play the game on the ice. I think it's pretty clear the hiring of Jacques Martin is a sign that Ray Shero wants his team to be able to respond better in situations where their origina...
I’ve been back and forth on whether or not I think getting Babcock is a “Must” for the leafs. One thing is for sure and that is Toronto needs a complete make over in how desirable they are to free agents, coaches, scouts and anyone else in the industry. I think about teams like the Yankees in baseball, players want to go to New York because it comes with an air of re...
