yeah. didnt even really consider hunter hasnt coached in the AHL yet. i dont think you can jump from juniors to the NHL.
I'd feel comfortable with Hartley. He has won a cup and and coached superstars Sakic and Forsberg, also Rob Blake and Ray Bourque.
His wiki page says he is currenly coaching in sweden. wonder if that complicates things. fyi, he was fired from the thrashers after going 0-6. thats a quick trigger
