Wes Walz or Darby Hendrickson for Assistant Coach?

Former Minnesota Wild player Wes WalzMinnesota Wild Assistant Coach Mike Ramsey stepped down from his position earlier this summer. Ramsey had been with the Minnesota Wild since the start of the franchise. Some names that have been mentioned as a possible replacement include former Minnesota Wild fan favorite Wes Walz and former Mr. Hockey, Minnesota Gopher, and Minnesota Wild player, Darby Hendrickson. The Star Tribune mentioned the two names but clearly it is all speculative. I would approve of either hire, as both coaches would bring a younger attitude and have played for the organization.

I always thought Wes Walz had a little crazy in him - didn't he refuse to play because his skates had worn out? I think he has too much OCD to be a players coach.
