The Malik Report

The Free Press’s Helene St. James reported that the Red Wings plan on both waiting until the team’s organizational meetings take place in the middiel of June to decide whether to bring Chris Osgood and Kris Draper back, and the team will also wait until after their remaining assistant coach, Paul MacLean, makes his circuit of NHL teams in an attempt to land a head coaching job before the team goes looking for Brad McCrimmon and possibly MacLean’s replacements…
And this morning, MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that MacLean’s going to speak to Bryan Murray about the Ottawa Senators’ coaching vacancy:
Detroit Red Wings assistant coach Paul MacLean has interviewed for the Ottawa Senators head coaching position, a league source said.
MacLean, whose contract expired at the end of the season, has been offered an extension by the Red Wings. He will first seek an NHL head coaching job.
Senators general manager Bryan Murray was the GM in Anaheim when he hired MacLean as an assistant coach in 2002 under head coach Mike Babcock.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
