Sutter Stepping Out--- Guy Stepping In?

1) As was mentioned here almost a month ago the devils will again be looking for a new coach. A we wrote back in late May. http://newfaux.blogspot.com/2009/05/is-gary-listening-and-other-news.html Lamarello will NOT be the reason this time, but Sutter will step down. This occurred today when Sutter announced his resignation. Sutter served two seasons as head coach and had a season remaining on his contract.

2) As we speculated back then the move could clear the way for Sutter to become coach of the Calgary Flames where his brother, Darryl, is the general manager. The Flames fired coach Mike Keenan last month and no replacement has been named. Its unclear whether NJ would demand compensation for Sutter if the Flames were to sign him for the 2009-10 season. So the search is back on in NJ. If we had to guess we would NOT be shocked to see Lou go where he seems to like to find coaches. From Montreal cast offs. There is a former Habs coach that is well regarded in NJ available. The question is whether Lou will make the obvious move and call Guy Carbineau? Our sources tell us that it could get done before the draft!
