Winging It In Motown

Seattle Kraken name Dave Hakstol as their first head coach – ESPN

Former Arizona coach Rick Tocchet had multiple interviews with Seattle, and the team also considered former Rangers coach David Quinn, Buffalo interim coach Don Granato, AHL coach Kevin Dineen, Sharks assistant coach Rocky Thompson and Boston Bruins assistant Joe Sacco. Gerard Gallant, the first coach for the Golden Knights — who led the team to the Stanley Cup Final in its inaugural season — was long rumored to be a target but recently signed a four-year deal to coach the Rangers.

He still looks like the evil dean from an 80s college movie.

So that’s an early first rounder, a starter-caliber goalie, an established roster player AND a prospect that got turned down it seems.
