He does have the golden touch. McCrimmon should be worried.

DAMN! You beat me to it! :lol:

But ya, seriously, take off McCrimmon! Please Mr. Holland and Mr. I, hire this guy!

That's what I thought as well...Please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Hitchcock known for being a bit of a "hard ass" with the players, and is quite demanding?

If so - he's exactly what our D could use.

I hate Hitchcock and so do the players, reportedly. But he gets them to perform. Perhaps you're right.

I lolled at this.

“Hitch phoned me and said, ‘I want to learn, can I come to your camp?,'” Babcock said. “I phoned Kenny Holland and said, ‘He wants to learn, but I want to learn, too -- can he come to our camp?’

But seriously. What are the chances that he takes a coaching spot? I don't want to get my hopes up too much.

I think Hitch coming in and replacing McCrackhead, is large, but silent move, that puts the other 29 teams on notice.

I f***in love this team! They have an off year, and they come back reloaded and ready to f*** some s*** up!

Come on Mr. and Mrs. 'I', pay that gray haired man!
lighten up people, it's the internet!

Hey, Hitch: "Pizza Pizza!!" :P

yes. In so many words, what you said. Their "off" year wouldn't even have been that, had half the team not been injured most of the season. Health is the key.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

If this man replaces McCrimmon... tears of joy will be spilled. Not so much because I don't like Brad, but I mean Hitch is a defensive specialist. This would be an awesome move if it happens. :thumbup:

Please happen.

This guy has been a headcoach for so long and even won a cup in -99, doubt he would accept being an assistant coach even if it's for Detroit.

Unless he just wants less pressure, less media, etc. but still wants to be around the game.

I don't see him replacing McCrimmon, but I also don't see him having a shot at an NHL head coaching gig this season (at least, until January/February).

You never know, I suppose.
