Or hire Mark johnson. He did beat the russians. And what hockey kid hasn't seen miracle. Other than him though big missed opportunity if go with Granat/Osiecki/whoever not a current DI coach

This is what made his post funny.

Not sure if men's hockey will follow the same timetable as women's basketball, but serious candidates are being named/leaked and Kelsey was fired two weeks before Eaves. So I'm guessing men's hockey applicant names will start filtering out within 2 weeks.

Alright. Missed that one. I haven't paid attention to hockey for a few years.

Did he ever actually finish school? They're not hiring anybody without a degree.

Good point, although the posting says a candidate will need to obtain one within 12 months. It's too bad there isn't... I don't know.... some sort of degree granting institution somewhere that could possibly help out Mr. Chelios...

As I recall he was pretty far along toward a Major in Clap Bombs with an emphasis on Winning ****ing Championships while in school.

I know a source where he can get a really good fake degree. Fake or not, a degree is a degree.

The "knock your socks off" coach is going to be Scotty Bowman.

You heard it hear first. I heard he really wants to add a B1G regular season championship to his collection.

Yeah good call. He's only in his 80s, has a few good years left!

Maybe Gurts Melrose theory has juice...

Did I bring up Melrose?

I do like him though... :D



Juice meaning whatever he was drinking at the state hockey tournament when he was absolutely plowed?

I had a couple cocktails at the tourney, but a flask could never be enough to get me "plowed."

We're professionals over here.

A sourcey source (who is in the a. d.) last night said that he's heard Oz's name mentioned more than anyone else.

"Mentioned" as in, that's the guy.

At least that's how I took it although I didn't press.

Not too surprising. The most logical conclusions are Oz or Granato, right?

If Granato is so good why hasn't he been hired for a Division I job already? I don't see the need to settle for a "wisconsin" guy. There are no "wisconsin" guys that are currently Division I men coaches right now. Anyone think that's weird? The hockey program doesn't need a nice little fluffy love dove story by hiring the Wisconsin guy. Hire a **** division I coach whose had success at worse programs. Seems pretty straight forward to me.

Though Granato hasn't coached D-1 hockey he has been successful at pretty much every level there is. NHL assistant coach, ECHL Champion as a head coach,, AHL Head Coach of the Year, NHL scout, USHL Champion as a head coach, USA NTDP Coach for the last 4-5 years and a D-1 National Champion as a player on the 1990 Badger team.. He has a knowing of every top recruit in the country by being with USA Hockey as well as his coaching past in the USHL..And his name carries immediate respect.. I think he would be a great hire by Wisconsin!

I'm not saying it's a sure thing nor did he.

Just passing on what I (he) heard.

All the same, we had to figure his name would come up just as much as we knew Chryst was going to go after the football gig last year.

I have also heard OZ will be next coach; coming from someone that knows him personally. I don't think we could go wrong with Granato or Oz.

Any way we could get Granato and Oz together? That would be a killer combo, but might be one to many chiefs, so to speak.

I had heard a month ago from the inner circle of Oz that Eaves would be going. To me that meant either he is connected with people that would know that &/or his tires were being kicked as a possible replacement.

I was thinking that Oz with Granato as assistant or associate would "knock my socks off."

I believe your concern could be valid though.
