Wilson is a very famous coach for a man who hasn’t won it all (three stops as head man so far, Washington, Anaheim and San Jose) but has one pennant (Washington, 1998) and I doubt he’ll spend long out of the big league coaching loop.
He is known for bringing technology to the forefront in the National Hockey League and early this calendar year won his 500th NHL regular season game. He was the 11th man in the league’s history to do it.
After losing in the second round for the third year in a row, the Sharks as an organization had enough of him. He also probably didn’t help himself with a bizarre press conference right after the season.
If there is an ideal team for Wilson to coach, with his swagger and his laptop, it would most certainly be Toronto. It’s the logical marriage and it would probably work.
