Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada found the New York Jets head coach in the crowd.
from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
There was an unlikely visitor on the Blues’ bench at today’s morning skate. New York Jets coach Rex Ryan watched the team practice and spoke with Blues coach Ken Hitchcock.
“I said, ‘Man, you coach this team like a football team ... and that’s the truth,” Ryan said. “He spent a lot of time around football coaches as well. This is my first opportunity to be around a great hockey coach.
“Sport is sport, but you watch this (Blues) team and golly, this is what I want for our football team ... everybody buys in. They have one all-star and it’s the backup goalie, and here they are with the best record in hockey.”
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
The New York Jets coach returns to the city where he grew up, played hockey, cut classes ... and cheered for the Leafs.
Rex Ryan is practically mapping out the parade route.
The one down Bay St., not Broadway.
The emotional coach of the New York Jets is discussing how much a championship would mean to a certain title-starved city. He’s not talking about the Jets, the Big Apple and the NFL, either.
“Can you imagine how crazy Toronto would go if the Maple Leafs were to ever win a Stanley Cup?” the bubbly Ryan says with excitement. “Man, people would go nuts!
“It might be the biggest celebration in the history of sports.”
