Wings fans are hoping for a Euro/Russian coach. I have my doubts about that happening.

technically the canucks are named after a slang term for canadians borne from a world war 2 comic book character, so they should probably move them up to the warriors category

Shouldn't the Sabres be warriors? They're not the Buffalo Buffalos

I've seen multiple people say "Quenneville was just wronged by management in Chicago, he should be able to come back (and coach in Detroit)."

No! No!

I'm borrowing this from another comment, but imagine saying you'll invest money in your business after the customers give you money? What a clown.

After reading Bultman's article on Stevie Y I just wondered why he even bothers to have this end of season availability. Come on down and let me tell you absolutely nothing!

But he does so in such delightful ways!

The line about how he recognized how he usually hires people he knows and then said "Well now that I've realized that I need to work against it" is Yzerman in a nutshell -- most GMs would just yammer on about how they need someone they trust or with experience. The lone glimpse into Yzerman's mindset is "Here's something you could run with, BUT"

I'm more tempted by Larianov (who just took a KHL job and won't be hired by the Wings) than Fedorov, but I think the Swedish coaches are more likely and even then, my guess is he'll go with someone like Benoit Groulx.

I really just don't want a retread like Torts or Paul Maurice. Or some sociopathic Wings fans have brought up Babcock and Quenneville, fuck that so hard.

My guess is Soderblom will need a year in the AHL to get used to North American style of play but man
