Marc Crawford confirmed that both Stu Barnes and Andy Moog will be returning as coaches. Stu will most likely be behind the bench while Moog will be the bird’s-eye view from the press box. I gotta say, I love that these two are coming back. I just plain out heart Stu Barnes, and I think that Turco and Moog have a built a relationship that works.
The new coach of the Texas Stars, Dallas’ AHL team, is Glen Gulutzan from the ECHL’s Las Vegas Wranglers.
The Wranglers qualified for the playoffs in five of Gulutzan’s six
seasons at the helm, including their expansion season of 2003-04 when the
team went 43-22-7 for 93 points. He was named ECHL Coach of the Year in
2005-06 and has been selected to coach in the three
times, tying the league record for most appearances by a coach. It sounds good to me.
Dave Tippett will not be coaching the Wild, as they announced today that Todd Richards is their new coach.
That’s about all for now!
