from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

What are your thoughts initially on the kind of head coach you want to hire?

“That's a good question. Again, that's one of things that I really want to ask a few questions here before I get started. With anything, when you're looking for a coach, whether it's internally or you're talking to people outside, there's some different criteria in terms of coaches that can discipline, coaches that can motivate, coaches that can teach. There's a lot of good coaches that are available and there's two people in Jersey right now in Scott Stevens and Adam Oates. Adam's been a head coach before and Scott I've heard real good things about him. So, in terms of the proper fit or the right guy for the New Jersey Devils, time will tell on that from asking some of the questions and seeing things.

“I certainly have some ideas in terms of coaching styles, philosophies, but I need to find out more about the New Jersey Devils because it's an important decision not only just for next year, but moving forward and buying into that. There's some good coaches available and I look forward to talking to the coaches that are there (in New Jersey) and getting their feedback and their philosophy. I hope to do that a little bit maybe before I leave (for the world championships) and certainly when I get back and then go from there.”
