Boy did that 9-0 win really feel good. Flat out embarrassed the Flyers from starting to finish. So…how quickly can Kris Knoblauch be named head coach of the Rangers? I’m joking right here….except….?
When it was introduced he can be teaching the Hartford Wolf Pack, I actually preferred the rent. Knoblauch not solely had a observe file of growing gamers on the professional stage with the Flyers, but in addition on the AHL and Junior ranges. He coached Connor McDavid in junior. He additionally took groups on a number of playoff runs, and has proven promise of a superb teaching profession at 42 years outdated.
Now how does that translate to the NHL? Properly–albeit a small pattern dimension–apparently he obtained whole domination from the Rangers in aid of a COVID riddled teaching workers. Would possibly we be wanting on the type of coach that might be within the wings of taking this group to the following stage?
We discuss “exterior the field” hires the entire time as hockey followers, however Knoblauch may actually be that subsequent coach up for the NHL. If he continues to indicate promise of placing the group in Hartford in positions to succeed, he ought to completely be within the combine ought to the Rangers resolve they need to go in a brand new path. Spoiler alert: They need to, and I’ve made my emotions on this matter identified already.
Possibly it was as a result of the gamers felt relaxed round him. Or perhaps it was simply that the coach on the opposite finish was Alain Vigneault. Possibly it was only a flat out fortunate night time that ought to have simply been 4-0 as an alternative of 9-0. Regardless, that was a enjoyable recreation to observe should you have been a Rangers fan.
Anybody studying this have the power to deactivate Quinn’s keycard into the world? No? Okay. Properly, get wholesome first off, however take your time popping out of COVID protocol, Quinn. We’re simply high-quality with Kris Knoblauch because the coach of the Rangers proper now.
