“Someone asked me when I’m going to retire, and I said, ‘Retire from what?’”
“No, I’m having fun. As long as I’m having fun, that’s the name of the game. If I’m not having fun, then you’ll see it on Coach’s Corner. But I can hardly wait to get on Coach’s Corner. It hasn’t got blasé. I’m still jumpin’.”

The Philadelphia Flyers continue to search for a new head coach and their short list includes Dallas Eakins, according to Sportsnet’s Damien Cox.
Eakins, 48, was considered to be one of the fastest-rising coaches in the industry prior to a rough two-season stint with the Edmonton Oilers. Under Eakins, the Oilers went 36-63-14 before the club dismissed him this past December.
