Canucks Should Get Haviland

24 posts in this topic

Chicago just fired this guy under unusual circumstances, lots of rumours going around about dysfunction and the like. He's a top assistant coach around the league, might even be head coaching material some say. He'd be a solid addition to the Canucks' staff, it's already a really good staff, this guy could give us inside info on the hated Blackhawks and help us out. I think they should offer Haviland a job post haste.

Sure go for it. Coaching salary doesn't count toward our cap hit anyways.

We need a guy with a name like Haviland... that's where this thread is heading since you haven't posted his qualifications or what he did for the Hawks organization. But NEAT!

This is all part of a secret spy plot by CHI to have Haviland infiltrate the canucks organization as a mole. DONT DO IT!!! Unless we can turn him against CHI and he becomes a DOUBLE AGENT but then CHI might be thinking this already, making him a potential TRIPLE AGENT!!!

Newell Brown really destroyed our powerplay last season and Bowness has done an awful job with our defence. These are the two main areas we need to fix, and we have the personel for it, so get rid of our special-teams coach and defence coach and hire some new people.

Maybe the Hawks fired him so that we would hire him so that the Hawks would have a mole inside our organization :shock:

This is what Dreger said last October:

Three current NHL assistants - Chicago's Mike Haviland, Nashville's Lane Lambert and Philadelphia's Kevin McCarthy are also highly regarded.

Haviland finished a close second in Winnipeg's decision to go with Claude Noel and is considered a strong candidate to make the jump to a head coaching position.

And his Bio off the Blackhawks website:

Mike Haviland is in his fourth season as an Assistant Coach for the Blackhawks after being named to the coaching staff on July 23, 2008. A member of the 2010 Stanley Cup champion team, Haviland arrived in Chicago after spending three years as Head Coach of the organization’s American Hockey League affiliates Norfolk (2005-07) and Rockford (2007-08).

In his seven-year minor league head coaching career, Haviland never missed the playoffs, including capturing the ECHL’s Kelly Cup in 2003 with the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies and in 2005 with the Trenton Titans. He posted a .600 or better winning percentage in six of his seven head coaching seasons and never finished with a winning percentage lower than .588. Haviland also earned the AHL’s 2007 Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award, given annually to the league’s top coach.

The Middletown, N.J., native began his professional coaching career as an assistant for Trenton in 1999 before moving behind the bench as Head Coach of the Boardwalk Bullies prior to the 2001-02 campaign. After a one-year stop as Head Coach of the Titans (2004-05), Haviland joined the Blackhawks organization as Head Coach of the Norfolk Admirals in 2005-06.

Haviland played two years of professional hockey, with the Binghamton Whalers (AHL) in 1989-90 and the Richmond Renegades and Winston-Salem Thunderbirds (both ECHL) in 1990-91, before injuries cut his career short. Haviland has three children: Shane, Riley and Kelly.

I think Bowness's work should get a closer look. He and AV go back a long way as Bowness hired AV as an assistant coach when he was in Ottawa. Who knows who has what control over who in the Canuck coaching. Obviously AV has the final say. I simply scratched my head watching Canuck dmen lose position thru the season and playoffs. The goaltending made them look far better than they were.

Hire Haviland as an assistant. Then extend AV, letting him know we have a capable replacement for him to step in if the team slips.
