The Latest On Ken Hitchcock

from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,

While he indicated Thursday he has been having discussions with current St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock since the season ended, General Manager Doug Armstrong refused to shed any light on the team’s coaching situation.

Hitchcock’s contract expires in June and the Blues reportedly explored the possibility of bringing in former Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock. Media reports suggested that Babcock had talks with the Blues, Red Wings and Buffalo Sabres before deciding to sign a record-breaking eight-year, $50 million contract to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs.

During a conference call with reporters Thursday to discuss the hiring of new assistant general manager Martin Brodeur, Armstrong was asked specifically if he knew whether Hitchcock would be brought back as head coach of the Blues next season.

“You’re trying to put words in my mouth,” Armstrong said. “When I have something to communicate, I will.”

“You’re trying to put words in my mouth,” Armstrong said. “When I have something to communicate, I will.”

Upon seeing Armstrong’s quote, Hitchcock replied, “No kidding, words don’t go in people’s mouths.  Donuts go in people’s mouths.”

God I’m bored today.  raspberry
