With Ron Wilson finally named Maple Leafs head coach, teams such as Ottawa, San Jose and Florida are starting to make headway on their own coaching searches.

 

Wilson's ex-team, the San Jose Sharks are slowly zeroing in on his replacement. Todd McLellan, an assistant coach with the Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings will interview for the job on Tuesday before heading to Atlanta to discuss the Thrashers coaching vacancy with General Manager Don Waddell.

Sources say Kitchener Rangers head coach and GM, Peter DeBoer is also high on Doug Wilson's list in San Jose and failing a change of heart, may be considered the frontrunner.

The Sharks may be in competition for DeBoer as the Ottawa senators and Florida Panthers remain in the mix. The Senators are believed to have strong interest in DeBoer along with Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds coach Craig Hartsburg and veteran NHL coach, Bob Hartley.

With Toronto's coach in place and Tampa Bay rumored to be tied to Barry Melrose, that leaves Ottawa, San Jose and Florida and Atlanta eager to find their man.
