Rangers Can Switch Things up by Hiring Youthful Marc Savard for New Staff


Recommended Posts


Nearly a quarter of a century later, it is time to explore bringing Savard back to New York as an assistant coach to preside over the power play and work with the forwards. In two years a head coach in the OHL, in which he had Will Cuylle for a spell, Savard’s team won the West both seasons while finishing second overall in the league.



He is on record as saying he has interest only in being an NHL head coach, and not reprising his role as an assistant, but let’s be realistic here.


It seems to me that Savard’s path to achieving his objective would be accelerated by a successful stint as an assistant in New York as opposed to continuing as a successful head guy in Windsor.



So the Rangers should to take the opportunity to invite Savard, who will turn 46 on July 17, in for an interview with Laviolette and general manager Chris Drury. There is no reason for same-old, same-old. The power play should be more dynamic and more productive than it was last season. It needs to be reimagined.
