    AV would be an interesting choice. Would really provide a great example for the toughness and grit thread. You can rest assured AV coaching the Stars isn't going to stop Benn from standing up for his guys.

    Everything Phil owns just auto-corrects to Hitchens



    Hopefully he's just done and doesn't have any health concerns. He's been a staple for so long it feels like a piece of my adolescence is gone. I still have Bartolo Colon, though.

    Hope AV heads to Dallas! They have a lot of young talent and have players that are physical

    Would they have to give up any picks or work out some kind of deal since he is still under contract?

    I don't think so. He was fired. The Rangers just have to keep paying him until if/when he signs a new deal.

    No. That rule was done away with. Babcock was the last coach who had to be paid for in this manner.
