I'm sure Gaucho secretly wishes for the return of Don Jackson who's been coaching in Germany lately
I had forgotten he was the Penguins' assistant coach.
KCs former staff has fared well:
Troy Ward is the head coach of Flames AHL affiliate, and is rumored to be promoted in a few years. He was ECHL coach of the year in 2001
Don Jackson who was an assistant in the NHL for several years, has won 5 champions during the past six years in Germany, and a European trophy.
Mike Eaves won world junior championship in 2004 as a head coach, then frozen four in 2006 and lost in finals in 2010 for the NCAA title. He's the head coach of University of Wisconsin.
Only Rick Kehoe has disappeared and last I heard of him, he was a scout for some other organization.
Constantine himself, who fared well with Sharks and the Penguins given circumstances, won NAHL championship in 2002, broke record for best season ever by a first-year team in major junior hockey leagues (Everett Silvertips, WHL), won U.S. division championship, won three straight playoff rounds and claimed Western Conference Championship, but lost in finals. He was named coach of the year in 2004. (He's also previously been runner up for Jack Adams Trophy in the NHL, and won commissioner's award in 1991). In 2007 he was named head coach of Houston Aeros of AHL. Completely turned them around, and reached Western Conference finals in 2009. He's now coaching in Switzerland (Richard Park plays on his club).
