    Haviland to Interview for Winn. Job

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2011/0...-coaching-job/

    Chicago Blackhawks assistant Mike Haviland will interview for the coaching position in Winnipeg, NHL.com has learned.

    Haviland, who turns 44 next month, has spent the past three seasons behind Chicagoís bench and helped the Hawks win their first Stanley Cup since 1961 when the Blackhawks beat the Philadelphia Flyers in six games last spring.

    The Middletown, N.J., native won ECHL championships with two different teams (Atlantic City in 2003 and Trenton in 2005) and was the AHLís Coach of the Year in 2007, when he guided the Norfolk Admirals to a 50-win season. In his seven years as a coach in the minor leagues, Haviland never missed the playoffs. He posted a .600 winning percentage in six of those seven seasons.

    Haviland joins a list of candidates that also includes Craig Ramsay, who was Atlantaís coach this season. TSN reported Wednesday that former Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish will interview with new Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Claude Noel, coach of the Winnipeg-based AHL Manitoba coach, has also been reported to be a candidate.

    Cheveldayoff, hired last week by the group that is buying the Thrashers and moving them to Winnipeg, was an assistant general manager with the Blackhawks for the past two seasons.

    It'd be a bummer if Chevy took him. Blackhawks North, I tell ya.

    Once Havi got back on PK duty things cleaned up a bit. I'd give him that Assistant HC title to try and hold him down for a few more years. He'll be a bench manager before long, though.

    The sh-- apple doesn't fall far from the sh-- tree.

    Apparently Noel is going to be named the head coach now.

    I hope Haviland stays with our team for atleast another year. He is going to get his shot to be a head coach sooner or later.

    If you keep taking our management, thats one thing.

    If they try to take Toews home when he becomes a F/A then I say we blow up Winnipeg.

    I fully believe that once Havi gets his shot, he is going to be a head coach for a long time. He is great on and off the bench and didn't suck to have a couple cocktails in an almost empty bar either


    Rockford, pit stop on the road to being champions.
