If confirmed, well, shucks, I would’ve liked him coaching the Wings’ PP.

This guy is a great Offensive Hockey mind.  A great move by Washington.  He will take the handcuffs off Ovechkin and the rest of Caps, without throwing defense out the window.

He also had a nice run behind the Devils bench as an assistant this post season.
