08:21 AM ET 06.03 | With success comes change (the Blackhawks come quickly to mind). Members of the organization become more in-demand. The Predators, coming off the best season in franchise history, are seeing this firsthand with their coaching staff. Assistant coach Peter Horachek confirmed Wednesday that he interviewed with the Dallas Stars this week for their head coaching vacancy. Horachek, 51, said he met with Stars Director of Scouting and Player Development Les Jackson and General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. "Great people. I really enjoyed sitting down and talking to them," Horachek said. "They have a great facility there, where their offices are and the practice rink is. It looks like it was a fabulous facility."

Before you take the job Peter, remember that Brad Richards has left the building....

This is the kind of guy the Stars are going to have to go after. I don't think they'll be able to bring a big name coach in until things are settled with the ownership. It could work out, but I'd only sign him for two years tops.

At least collect some draft picks, right?

They shoulda made the playoffs... I think Brad is being a little impatient. It will get done and the new owners (Tom or Cuban) will want to make a splash.

If you like your hockey like the Buttgoblin's dates (very low scoring) then that's great.

I agree. You can only step and squeeze buns so long....
