Probably the least surprising award of the year... no way anyone else should have gotten a first vote.

Didn't take long for you to come back.

Sounds like the Jets' short list includes Jim Montgomery as a potential HC, and he's got ties to several individuals to the organization, including Heisinger, Roy, and Arniel (not hired yet but all indications are he's going to be).

It seems pretty apparent Trotz is their top candidate, and rightfully so considering what's at stake, but good on the Jets for putting in the legwork and casting a wide net to keep their options open to potential suitors should Trotz not pan out as hoped.

I am sure the Jets would like to have a HC in place before the draft.

One of the talking heads said he expected some clarity on the coaching market this week. Friedman, maybe?

One less team vying for Trotz as Vegas has signed former Bruins coach Cassidy
Definitely agree that a coach signed before the Draft is a positive step

Dubois has reportedly told the Jets he intends to test the FA waters in two years; the Jets want him to sign long-term: https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/dubois-informs-jets-he-plans-to-test-free-agency-in-2024-team-wants-to-keep-him/

Not good news.

Really awful that this came out for all to hear.
Leverage for the Jets, if it became a trade him situation, just got substantially worse for Chevy

Something stinks within the organization but it's hard to know what and how badly.

New HC has his work cut out. I hope whoever it is can get things straightened out before long and we can hear Dubois changing his tune.

And Mcntyre reported that Blake Wheeler is actively being shopped (suggested to PM in Florida).

Things are definitely [rumoured to be] happening.

That's a big contract to try and dump. I'd imagine the Jets would have to retain salary but I'm also wondering what the return would be.
