I don't know the coaching market very well, especially in such leagues. Maybe Taylor or Keefe from AHL, Alain Vigneault is still free, Guy Boucher or Bob Boughner, or Dave Tippet.

i guess i am just thinking that they should break cycle of recycling nhl coaches. instead they should try bringing in coaches proven by years of developing younger players into champions consistently. so Taylor or Keefe from AHL work well too.

Ralph Krueger.

"Known as a defensive-minded coach, he has also demonstrated the ability to deliver the offensive style of game. He has been described as a great communicator, positive thinker and a motivator."

I wouldn't hire a NCAA coach. You need a coach with pro experience who knows the players/teams...pro concepts. And Dale Hunter with Patrick Roy might be good/great coach/GM in junior where the team owner has complete control over his players. Doesn't necessarily work in the NHL. Hunter has shown he doesn't want an NHL position.
