Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
McCrimmon has every intention of being an NHL head coach — in Atlanta or somewhere else.
“I just know I can do it,” he said simply. “I’ve known it for awhile.”
General manager and current head coach Don Waddell has made his intentions clear. He’d prefer to return upstairs to focus on his general managing duties.
He’s also said McCrimmon is the front-runner to replace him behind the bench, but any edge McCrimmon has right now, is loaded with ifs.
If the Thrashers finish the season strong. If they continue to show improvement after a slow start. If Scotty Bowman doesn’t show up on Waddell’s doorstep.
