There isn’t a day that goes by that Rick Bowness doesn’t sit back and wonder.
How safe is it for him to stand behind the bench this summer if the NHL’s 24-team tournament goes ahead as scheduled?
“I’ve been giving it an awful lot of thought. Without a doubt. I’m 65,’’ Bowness told The Athletic this week. “Am I nervous? Absolutely I am, to get this thing.’’
To be clear, he is currently planning to coach the Dallas Stars this summer. But he’s certainly eyeing the situation closely. As he should be.
