    Ok then.

    I'll keep an open mind.

    Need to see what he does here, with this roster, these personalities. Whatever was going on in SJ and Edm... whatever.

    At the same time, won't there be even more guys available in the coming weeks?

    And the Mayor, for what it's worth, said there is no new news to share contrary to other reports.

    Five years?!?!? Oh boy.

    Rebuild History:

    Deano gave Crawford a 3 year deal....fired him after year two.

    Deano gave Murray a 3 year deal....fired, yup, after about 3 years.


    Blake would be making a bad move on a 5 year deal during a rebuild.

    As for pursuing McClellan......that's a whole other issue.

    Two guys who are never right are on opposite sides on this? You mean one of them will actually have to be right???? This is a truly historic moment!!

    Contrary to some, I think McLellan is the right coach for the style of play that the team is looking for. I'm not sure of his motivational methods or capabilities, but I'll remain positive until I see otherwise.

    I don't like Todd. Blake hiring his ex coach, weak. If they are going to hire a veteran coach, I'd rather have Vigneault.

    The five years is more of an indication of how hard it would be to get a veteran coach to put his reputation on the line with the outside view of the organization. I doubt any other candidate would want less, especially when the organization has shown its willing to burn some cash to change.
