Winnipeg Jets schedule Craig Berube for a head coach interview

Published May 14, 2024 at 2:21 PM

Frank Seravalli over at Daily Faceoff dropped a nugget of insight today. The Jets offer Craig Berube a sense of familiarity that could tip the scales in their favor.

Being a seasoned coach, he knows the Central Division like the back of his hand, which could give him a leg up when plotting strategies against divisional rivals.

Sounds like Craig Berube is scheduled to be in Winnipeg today to interview with #gojetsgo .

After significant time spent with #LeafsForever , #njdevils  and #goSENSgo , he is the most in-demand coach this hiring cycle. Could he steer #nhljets away from Scott Arniel?

Yet there's a sneaky third reason why Berube might end up in Winnipeg, and it's a spicy one. Berube is a fierce competitor, and the chance to face off against the team that axed him might just light a fire under him. He'd be itching to prove to Blues' GM Doug Armstrong that giving him the boot was wrong. Winnipeg offers a more stable environment compared to New Jersey, too.

Now, if Berube wants "win now" and taste the Stanley Cup again for the first time since 2019, then he should consider offers from Toronto or Winnipeg. Yet, if he wants to be closer to home, then keep an eye out for him landing in New Jersey.
