    Default So, now where does Stevens go?

    Just fun speculation on the future of Stevens in the hockey world.
    At the end of the day, he does have a good resume with 2 cups and many years of experience, but has he finally "coached" himself out of the big leagues?

    What you do think LGK?

    1) Will he retire and move out of the public's eye aka; like Sutter?
    2) Accept an AHL or international coaching stint? (Rebuilding credibility)
    3) Get picked up as an Assistant coach elsewhere in the NHL? (Slight demotion)
    4) Accept Coaching job on NHL team by GM living in a cave? (Right back on the saddle)
    5) Stevens will be seen on TMZ, spotted at Pawn Shop trying to sell off his cup rings to make ends meet (Off the deep end)
    6) Insert OP thread attack or better yet, contribute a prediction not aforementioned. (Other)

    I wish Stevens the best, but he sealed his own fate with an infamous "I don't have any answers" retort.

    My vote:

    3) Get picked up as an Assistant coach elsewhere in the NHL? (Slight demotion)

    Let him stay behind the scenes.

    My guess is he's going to stay in So Cal and play a **** ton of golf. Kings might ask him to do Scouting until his contract expires. He can decline.

    Probably go spend Xmas with his family as best he can for the first time in forever.

    Come the Spring, he'll start poking around.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Good point. Do we know how long Stevens was signed for? Can he get work immediately after getting fired, or does he have to wait out the remainder of his conract, like a "non-compete" type stipulation?

    Probably going to relax for a while and figure out if he wants to get back in the grind. Beyond that, guessing it's an assistant job somewhere.

    Also, NO WAY IN HELL DO I WANT STEVENS SCOUTING FOR US! It was his lack of foresight, adaption and vision that got him canned in the first place. It is Steven's sensibilities that would get us stuck with another rash of Trevor Lewis, Thompson types that are "safe" and "dependable" but in now away will thrive in the NEW NHL.

    Stevens was in the final year of his contract.

    "If" he ends up coaching (head, assistant, or otherwise) my money is that he ends up back in Philly.
    Hextall will call him back home.

    Frankly, I don't give a damn where he goes. Long as it's out of L.A.

    My guess is he had a nice lunch today, will have a nice dinner and then maybe a movie or just relax at home tonight.

    Good point. Stevens will probably eat a mild, Coco's lunch menu.
