Since anyone and everyone that is or has been a coach in hockey at any level appears to be a candidate for the Colorado Avalanche head coaching position, add one more name: Ron Wilson.
The Sharks just canned him.
Ron Wilson is a good coach, but he's also aggressive and belligerent (if the reports are true) and he's a notorious choker in the playoffs. I have a feeling he won't quite top Pat Burns in the "who would you rather metaphorically make out with" competition being held among all the hot coaches currently on the market.
ADDENDUM: Also in the news, this from the World Wide Leader in Sports:
The Flyers are losing so bad they're beating themselves.
