6/4/21 | On the 31 Thoughts Podcast, Elliotte Friedman said of Tocchet “I think he’s going to be a candidate in a few places, he’s had a second interview with the Rangers, Seattle and a second interview with Columbus. I think it just shows that Tocchet has a great reputation, people really respect him, like him, he’s going to end up somewhere. I’m curious to see what happens with Gallant when Team Canada gets back, it seems like Tocchet and Gallant are very serious in New York, we will see where it goes, but Tocchet has a hugely positive reputation around the league. He’s a guy a lot of people have a lot of time for.”
6/4/21 | Darren Dreger said on Buffalo radio of Tocchet “it feels like he is jumping from one airplane to another. He’s interviewed a couple of times with the New York Rangers, so has Gerard Gallant, who is coaching Team Canada, at least twice with the Rangers and I’m sure Buffalo is circling back on these guys as well.
