Jim Nill could have picked anyone

Jim Nill could have picked anyone from an extensive list of experienced out-of-work NHL coaches to fill the Dallas Stars' vacancy.Darryl Sutter has won the Stanley Cup twice Jonathan Marchessault Jersey , Dan Bylsma once, Alain Vigneault has made the Final twice and Dave Tippett is widely considered one of the best in hockey. Any of them could've been a nice fit, but the Stars general manger wanted to be comprehensive in his search."The game is changing, life changes, and we wanted to make sure that we didn't forget somebody," Nill said. "Let's not leave anything, any leaf unturned, every door open, let's look at every candidate."Dallas decided last week on University of Denver coach Jim Montgomery to replace franchise legend Ken Hitchcock, who returned for one season almost two decades after leading the Stars to the Cup. Nill's front office is far from the only one looking outside the box to college Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey , junior and Europe for coaching candidates, a trend that could lead to far more teams going beyond retreads with the hope of finding the next great mind behind the bench."It's more kind of an evolution of the game itself," said Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol, who was hired out of the University of North Dakota in the summer of 2015 and has gotten the Flyers to the playoffs twice in three seasons. "There are so many good people coaching at different levels. For a lot of years it seems that maybe the college-coaching level was maybe bypassed for some of the opportunities. But I think when you look at the quality of coaching in the college game today … there's some real talented people."Before Hakstol and Montgomery, it had been since Herb Brooks in 1987 and Bob Johnson in 1982 that a coach went from the NCAA ranks directly to the NHL. Outside of now-San Jose's Peter DeBoer and ex-Pittsburgh coach Mike Johnston, junior hockey hasn't funneled many straight to the NHL, and there have only been two European-born head coaches: Ivan Hlinka and Alpo Suhonen in the early 2000s.It's far more common for teams to mine the American Hockey League and NHL staffs for head jobs, and that's usually a necessary step. Tampa Bay's Jon Cooper came from the United States Hockey League but spent time in the AHL before the Lightning elevated him, and longtime Quebec Major Junior Hockey League coach Benoit Groulx is on the same path now with the NHL in his near future.Buffalo's Phil Housley got some experience as the U.S. world junior coach but went right from high school hockey to being an assistant in Nashville. And Rod Brind'Amour spent seven seasons as an assistant after his playing days were over before being named Carolina's coach on Tuesday.Hurricanes GM Don Waddell said Brind'Amour's "fresh ideas, ability to motivate and understanding of what it takes to bring a championship" to Carolina set him apart. As the New York Rangers look to fill their job after firing Vigneault and other openings come up in the next few offseasons Nate Schmidt Jersey , there will be plenty of fresh coaches to choose from.Boston University's David Quinn has been linked to the Rangers but will stay at least one more year and run the U.S. world junior team before likely being the next to graduate from college to the NHL. Sweden national coach Rikard Gronborg might also be in the mix sooner than later."I've kind of done all that stuff and coached some of the best players in the world," Gronborg told Sportsnet recently. "Now I'm interested to have my ideas, to (implement) them over a period of time and do them overseas, and kind of challenging the coaching community over in the NHL. I bring a different perspective on things."Germany national coach Marco Sturm also brings a different perspective after playing 14 NHL seasons and leading an unheralded team to capture the silver medal at the most recent Olympics. Sturm would like to coach in the NHL but said: "I'm only 39 years old, I've still got time and I'm still learning and I want to learn and we'll see what the future presents."With an eye on the future, Nill looked at the present success of young coaches like Cooper and New Jersey's John Hynes and widened his net. It ended with Montgomery and perhaps a new thought process from Nill on how to go through coaching searches."Once we went through this process, I just think … who was Scott Bowman? Someone gave him a chance," Nill said. "Who was Mike Babcock? Somebody gave him a chance. This is a guy that he deserves a chance."—AP Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins in Dallas contributed.— DALLAS (AP) — Thanks to goalie Anton Khudobin, Tyler Seguin had a chance to get the game-winner in overtime for the Dallas Stars.Seguin's second goal of the game 3:37 into overtime lifted the Stars to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals.Anton Khudobin made 36 saves, 31 after the first period. Included were seven saves on two third-period Washington power plays and the stop of a backhand by T.J. Oshie 1 1/2 minutes into overtime.Khudobin stopped 30-goal scorer Alex Ovechkin six times."I know how dangerous (Ovechkin) is on the power play. Luckily http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/a … nsk-jersey , I had the saves and he was a little mad at me."Seguin's winner, his fourth goal in two games, came after Alexander Radulov skated behind the net and passed across to Seguin at the right of the net."Just hopped on the ice and went back door," Seguin said. "I didn't see the puck. I knew (Radulov) had it, and just laid it on my stick and I went back door and pushed it in."Dallas completed a 3-0-1 homestand."We were lucky to win," Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. "Second and third (periods) weren't good enough. (Khudobin) was great again. Thank God for our goalies."In Khudobin's last two games, including a franchise-record 49-save shutout Dec. 27, he has made 85 saves while allowing only one goal."If we play a second and third period like that," Capitals coach Todd Reirden said, "then we're going to win a lot of games. I think that's the lowest amount of shot total that we've held an opponent to in the third period. Two shots."Lars Eller scored for Washington Authentic Oscar Lindberg Jersey , which has lost three straight (0-2-1) and is tied with Pittsburgh in points atop the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals have played one fewer game than Pittsburgh, which beat Winnipeg earlier Friday."It's a shame we leave with only one point," Reirden said.Washington rookie goalie Pheonix Copley had 27 saves but saw his seven-game winning streak end.Dallas scored first with 6:40 remaining in the opening period on Seguin's power-play goal. Seguin was alone on the left side of the offensive zone when Radulov's shot from the right faceoff circle went off teammate Radek Faksa and Copley's stick to Seguin low in the left circle. Seguin put a wrist shot into the open left side of the net before the goalie could recover.Eller tied it at 10:19 of the second as he sent a backhand from outside the left faceoff dot past Khudobin and inside the right goalpost.After being outshot 15-5 in the first period, Washington had a 15-8 advantage in shots on goal in the second. Khudobin kept the Capitals from taking the lead in the last three minutes of the period when he stopped Chandler Stephenson's backhand on a short-handed breakaway.The Stars were on the defensive in a third period when they were outshot 14-2.NOTES: RW Erik Condra made his Stars debut. The 32-year-old was promoted from Texas of the AHL to fill in for Jamie Benn (upper-body injury). Condra played 366 NHL games for Ottawa and Tampa Bay. … Ben Bishop officially started in goal for Dallas but skated off at the faceoff and was replaced by Khudobin. The Stars mistakenly had circled Bishop's name in the official starting lineup. … The Capitals have only one goal on their last 31 power plays. … Seguin has six points in the last three games, following criticism from Stars CEO Jim Lites that Seguin and Benn weren't playing well enough. Dallas D John Klingberg said, "We feel like it's not about (Seguin), it's about all of us."UP NEXTCapitals: Complete a three-game trip on Sunday at Detroit.Stars: Play the first of three road games on Sunday at Winnipeg.
