Edmonton’s Other Coaching Candidate

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

At the Memorial Cup, Kevin Lowe officially confirmed the obvious, that Brent Sutter is one.

“I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to coach the Edmonton Oilers. He’s a very worthwhile candidate. No question. Brent is obviously a good coach, he’s an Albertan, he’s more than familiar with the Battle of Alberta and I would think Brent would want to coach the Oilers.”

The other candidate hasn’t received the same attention as Sutter. But he’s getting it now.

He was Tom Renney’s associate coach Ralph Krueger.

“He is a candidate,” confirmed Lowe.

But to what extent?

An e-mail exchange between well-known long-time Swiss hockey writer Klaus Zaugg and Krueger, the former Swiss national team coach, indicated Krueger considers his candidacy to be serious.
