Wilson, Crawford to interview with Penguins: report
TSN is reporting that former NHL coaches Ron Wilson and Marc Crawford will interview for the vacant Pittsburgh Penguins coaching job

The Pittsburgh Penguins are scheduled to talk to veteran coaches Marc Crawford and Ron Wilson about the vacancy created when they fired Dan Bylsma, according to a report by TSN's Darren Dreger.

Crawford, 53, has been coaching in Switzerland since a two-season stint with the Dallas Stars from 2009-11. A Stanley Cup winner in 1996 with the Colorado Avalanche, he has a 549-421-78 record with 103 ties in 1,151 NHL games coaching the Quebec Nordiques, Avalanche, Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Stars.

Wilson, 59, last coached in the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 2011-12 season. He has coached the Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals and San Jose Sharks. He took the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Final in 1998, his first season with them. He has an NHL record of 648-561-91 with 101 ties in 1,401 games.

Since being eliminated by the New York Rangers in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after holding a 3-1 series lead, the Penguins have fired general manager Ray Shero and Bylsma. They hired Jim Rutherford as GM, promoted Jason Botterill to associate GM and Bill Guerin and Tom Fitzgerald to assistant GM, and hired Jason Karmanos as vice president of hockey operations.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
