Head Coach search underway

According to the Dispatch, Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson will begin interviewing this weekend for a new, permanent (well, as permanent as the National Hockey League gets) head coach for the Boys in Union Blue.

Outside of what I've seen of Claude Noel - and he's a good enough coach to warrant serious consideration - I don't know anything about these folks.  So I assembled lists of names - confirmed (with the Dispatch) and rumored - and matched names, faces and biographical information from both Wikipedia and the teams' websites.  I'll find it interesting to check back in on this as we await the plume of white smoke from Nationwide Arena.  Hopefully, you will as well!

  1. Scott Arniel is by far the best choice. He was an assistant with the Sabres a few years ago and they haven't been the same since he left. The issue was that his family was in Manitoba and he wanted to be close to them. He's a very intellegent guy. Good Luck landing him. I think he would be great for the Jackets.
