Barry Melrose to coach in San Jose along side our good friend JR? Well, the position is open and the Mullet doesn't have any reservations about coaching again in the NHL. He even went so far as to say that it was the best job on the market. All of this came in an interview earlier this week with Sharkspage's PJ Swenson.
Here's the money quote:
Former Los Angeles Kings coach and current ESPN analyst Barry Melrose said in a short telephone interview today that he is still interested in a head coaching position. "Once you are a head coach, you are always a coach" Melrose said. He believes the position in San Jose is the most desirable opportunity on the market because in his opinion the Sharks could compete for a Stanley Cup next season.
Asked about the feelings of disappointment by players and staff after a second round exit to Dallas in the Western Conference Semifinals, Melrose said, "They should feel disappointed, they should still be playing".
That's right. You should feel shame for your early playoff exits! Feel it! Feel it!
