Kukla's Korner Hockey

According to RDS hockey analyst Vincent Damphousse, Bob Hartley had a second interview with Flames management for the vacant coaching job in Calgary.
Hartley has worked with Flames general manager Jay Feaster before, a connection that dates back to their days with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears, where they won the Calder Cup championship together in 1997.
Twitter was buzzing on Monday referencing a report from TheHockeyWriters.com that said Hartley would be named head coach of the Montreal Canadiens and that Memorial Cup champion Shawinigan Cataractes coach Eric Veilleux would join him as an assistant.
However, Hartley has one year remaining on a two-year deal with the ZSC Lions in Zurich, the team he guided to a league title in Switzerland this winter.
Note, Just in case you did not notice, the Hartley to Montreal topic was never posted in the KK Hockey section. Too early for that.
