He best stay in GR like he said he was going to do.  We need him there and to be around when Babs leaves.

He was the wrong coach from the get go and I highly doubt he will find another job soon, given his way of handling players and his overall antics I think they are going to look hard at McLellan

Holland said he would not give teams permission to interview Blashill.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

They can't.  He will not be given permission to talk to anyone.

His spot on the "panel" at TSN is already waiting for him. He just has to beat out Martin Biron in a thumb wrestling match.

He needs to be cast away to NBCSN and replace Edzo. He can't coach but I sure would like to hear him call games as a color commentator.

Yep and if I recall correctly Gillis had a similar deal.

McGratton looks like an absolute beast in that video, just manhandling everyone! Earned my respect in that incident for trying to hold the fort

Agreed. I think the guy needs a break away from actual nhl management. Commentator would fit him well.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Always liked him on the TSN panel. HE was good at that. Anything to get Biron off of it. Ugh..... Put Biron on RDS (french TSN) or something. I absolutely cannot deal with the way he talks. It isn't even just the accent. He also speaks english wrong.

His problem always has been that he puts himself and his antics before the team.  If he could keep his mouth shut, he wouldn't be such a distraction to everyone in the organization.  

 

I don't know why anyone would hire him.  Just because he fluked to a Stanley Cup with Tampa in 2004?  Look what he's done since then.  I wouldn't risk signing this guy if I'm GM.  He's too much of a distraction.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
