Ducks general manager Bob Murray figures to take a good look at several candidates to replace Bruce Boudreau as the club’s next coach. Among them:
Paul MacLean and Trent Yawney, the Ducks’ assistant coaches who orchestrated the team’s NHL-leading power-play and penalty-killing units during the regular season.
Dallas Eakins, coach of the Ducks’ American Hockey League affiliate in San Diego whose stint with the Edmonton Oilers did not go well at all.
Travis Green, a former Ducks player who has been coaching the Utica Comets of the AHL and his said to be ready to take the next step.
Guy Boucher, a former Tampa Bay Lightning coach who was coaching in Switzerland until he was fired last fall.
Marc Crawford, a former Kings, Avalanche and Canucks coach who also was coaching in Switzerland until he was let go last month.
