Kukla's Korner Hockey

Lou Lamoriello insists he isn't afraid of upsetting his sudden winning-streak apple cart by replacing himself with a new coach. "It's still on track. As soon as I get someone, [I'll] make some decisions," Lamoriello said. While some figures claim Brent Sutter will be named coach, perhaps as early as Tuesday, others remain dubious that Sutter would leave his junior team in midseason, or that Lamoriello would hire someone without NHL head coaching experience. Usually ubiquitous Rick Dudley has been suddenly invisible in the press boxes, despite being on the seat assignment sheets. Dave Lewis and Walt Kyle remain possibles, while two new names were broached yesterday: former Flyers coach Terry Murray and Bruins ex-coach Terry O'Reilly. And wasn't Robbie Ftorek brought back to Albany exactly for this situation?
