Oddsmakers: McLellan favorite to be Flyers' next head coach

Kyle Terada / USA Today

The Philadelphia Flyers need a head coach and may have been given a gift when the San Jose Sharks and Todd McLellan mutually agreed to part ways on Monday.

After firing Craig Berube, the Flyers have many candidates to choose from, and the odds are out on who will take the reins in Philly.

From Bodog:

Person Odds of coaching Flyers
Todd McLellan 9/4
Dan Bylsma 4/1
Mike Babcock 5/1
Guy Boucher 13/2
Pete DeBoer 13/2
Kevin Dineen 13/2
Benoit Groulx 13/2
Jeff Blashill 9/1
John Stevens 9/1

One name absent from the list is Los Angeles Kings assistant Davis Payne, who emerged as a candidate Tuesday.
