The Calgary Flames are due for some changes. Three straight years without a postseason appearance and an aging roster has brought up many questions that need answers during the offseason. On April 12, the Flames answered the first of their questions only to bring up another.
The Flames announced that head coach Brent Sutter would not be returning, nor would assistant coach Dave Lowry. The answer to whether the team would bring back Sutter for another year brought up but another question looking for an answer.
Who will be the new head coach?
General manager Jay Feaster has made it clear that plenty of time will be put into the search for the next bench boss so there is no real timetable of when the formal announcement will be made. Feaster may be taking his time to find the right candidate and rightfully so, but here are some of the guys he may have in mind as the teams’ next head coach.
