Randy Carlyle Ready To Coach Again

from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com,

“I have to make sure I’m ready and have an understanding of what’s going on in the League and there’s no better way than to have a presence in the buildings,” said Carlyle. “Just your presence in the building shows people you’re active and still out there and trying to stay current. That’s the message you want to send to everybody. It’s important. It’s important to meet people. In Anaheim, in the press box, I’ve probably met every general manager, every assistant general manager, every director of player personnel, all the pro scouts that go through the West that watch the hockey clubs out there—it’s all part of the process of keeping yourself current.”

His new perspective on the game has allowed him to gain some new perspective on what went wrong for him and the team this season. Carlyle went 283-182-61 in 516 regular-season games and 36-26 in 62 playoff contests. The Ducks made the playoffs five times in his six full seasons, including winning the 2007 Stanley Cup.

However, they were 7-13-4 and 14th in the Western Conference when he was let go Nov. 30.

Since then, Carlyle said he’s been doing “self-improvement” that he believes will help him in his next job.

Columbus going to be ready for another new coach next year?
As a Wings fan and Columbus resident, I would like to see Columbus get better. It would actually be sweeter to see the Wings come in and dominate a decent Jackets team instead of the crap on the ice here now.
I used to tell people ‘I like to watch hockey, but the only thing available here was the Jackets.’ I thought it was going to change when Hitchcock was the coach. Instead we’re right back to that.
