    25. The Rangers were interested in Montgomery, which is why Dallas snapped him up quickly. Do not be surprised if New York’s next bench boss has never coached in the NHL before. You are always looking for connections, which is why Boston University’s David Quinn is a prominent mention. Here’s another: In 2015, the Oshawa Generals won the Memorial Cup. Adam Graves, who works for the Rangers in hockey and business operations, has an ownership stake in that team. The coach was D.J. Smith, now an assistant in Toronto.

    and it's about to get more boring, Keefe's Marlies just made it to the AHL final four. Game 1 is only this Saturday 5/19/ If they go 7 that takes them to May 30 and that doesn't include the final Calder Cup round

    So they’ll announce Ruff as head coach 2 days before the draft.

    Rangers’ Coaching Options Now That Vigneault Is Axed

    My kinda’ bookie, kinda’ NHL mobbed-up golfer buddy says on VERY inside info that the BU guy is our first choice. Convo is about $$$...huge $$$.

    I’m putting down $10 on Quinn to win!

    I don't care really who the pick is because I have Gorton on a long leash. I trust he'll make the right choice for the roster he's constructing

    Same. Although I think Quinn is a really interesting choice and the kind of “out side the box” move the rangers should be making. Not too risky but still not your average retread.

    Renaud Lavoie said that part of the reason that the Rangers are taking a slow approach in their search for a new coach is because they want to see what Trotz's future in Washington could be. (Journal de Montreal)

    Rick Carpiniello wrote recently that he isn't sure Trotz has been considered as a candidate but adds that he has a reputation as someone who can develop players from his time in the AHL and with Nashville. (The Athletic)

    The belief around many in the NHL is that Capitals associate coach Todd Reirden is likely to replace Trotz if he does not return.

    The new new rumor is it’s not Keefe:

    Friedman continued, "Keefe's a name I have heard a lot but I have been told it's probably not him, he is the first guy that jumped into my head. They must be waiting to talk to Keefe who has the Marlies in the playoffs but guys tell me that they don't think that is it."

    He added that he has heard that it likely won't be Washington assistant Layne Lambert or Pascal Vincent, the coach AHL coach for the Jets.

    Trotz - 11 postseason appearances. This season is the first time his teams got past the 2nd round. I'll take a hard pass on him. Good enough to get in the playoffs and win a round, but then his teams eventually flame out and I wouldnt be surprised if the Caps flame out in this round too after having a 2-0 lead. Tonight is probably the make or break game for the Caps in the Conference Finals.

    Not the best for developing offensive talent, either

    Trotz is a retread and seems to go against everything the Rangers said they wanted in a coach. It's the safe/boring pick and I'd be pretty pissed if that's what they did.

    Could you imagine if they were waiting for Trotz? Waiting for him to be eliminated again, then fired or waiting for him to be a hero and stay in Wash?

    Doesn't make sense. I'm sticking with Keefe. Next year will be the year of Dubas and Keefe. Too bad we'll be breaking them up, but it is Keefe's time. Quinn is in the running, hopefully the backup plan.

    At this point I’m hoping it’s not Keefe or Quinn.

    Do they even have to wait for Keefe to finish his season before interviewing him? Thought I remember minor league and assistant coaches going to interviews while their teams are still playing? Maybe that NFL.
