Multiple reports saying Gerard Gallant and #NYR have mutually agreed to part ways after the Rangers were bounced in the first round of the playoffs.
Gallant was deeply interested in the #CBJ vacancy two years ago when Brad Larsen was hired. Seems likely he’d be a candidate again.

Two years ago, Gallant was very interested in the head coaching position in Ohio. Is he still? After all, the team is less competitive than it was two seasons ago…

According to Le Tigre, Gallant has enough money and has made enough mileage in his career. Bergy believes it’s more a case of “dismissal in disguise” than of Gallant’s departure.
It’s said that both parties agreed to part ways, but this is a constructive dismissal. It means “go home, the cheque’s in the trunk, but don’t speak against us”. Just like it happened to Paul Maurice last year with the Jets. – Michel Bergeron
On another note, the former Nordiques coach dreams of seeing Patrick Roy replace Gallant. He thinks the time is right for the current Remparts coach. Remember that he said a few days ago that he’d like to see Patrick behind the Senators’ bench… and the same goes for Yvon Pedneault.
In any case, Roy would have a great challenge in both Ottawa and New York. Both have good young teams with playoff aspirations. And it’s not as if he doesn’t have experience with young players…
– What do you think?
– Ah well.
