Waddell May Remain Behind The Bench

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Although Waddell would still prefer to name a permanent coach, it seems more likely each day that he will retain the title as interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Several factors might be pushing him toward that decision, including the fact that most of top assistant coaches around the NHL don’t have in-season out clauses and their general managers won’t give Waddell permission to talk to them until the summer.

Second, with the Thrashers’ ownership in limbo because of a legal squabble, Waddell could have trouble securing ownership approval for a long-term hire.
