An offer is out to a former Laker. He will decide soon.

Any hints?

I just love mysteries . Let us hope they don't announce the pick until late September and we have the next two months to guess . Maybe we should have a prize for the person who comes up with the right name .

It's hard to believe a guy named "Metro" would leave Lake Superior State University.

Obviously you don't know the guy too well. The name is pronounced Mee-tro. Not Met-tro. Nice try. And the Soo is his hometown.

We are in the long summer months, I thought a little guessing game would help pass the time. It's actually quite easy to guess, I'm surprised no one has yet.

And I'm all up for prizes, sm2pk...any suggestions?

A free autographed copy of the unofficial Frank Anzalone autobiography by Truth Squid when it comes out?

Suggestions ? yea,the big ten hockey league may destroy hockey programs at the smaller schools.

...or, it may remake the college hockey landscape into something more realistic, and healthier than it was.

LSSU and Ferris in the same conference as UM and MSU wasn't realistic.

LSSU, Ferris, Northern, Tech, Bemidji, Alaska, BG, St. Cloud, Minn-State, and Alaska-Anchorage in a conference? Yeah, that makes sense. And it would provide, ultimately, more exciting action, as the programs would be more or less on an even playing field.

Sometimes change is good.

That wouldn't be too bad of a conference. A 10 team conference with these teams would be doable.
Clusters would probably be:
BGSU/FSU, LSSU/NMU, MTU/Bemidji, SCSU/MSM, UAF/UAA

It does sound like this super conference will become a reality.

Jeff Blashill in the running for asst coach position with the Red Wings..

It puts WMU in a tough spot if he gets it, as they had him paid and penciled in as a program builder.

I would agree with you. I think it put the apples with the apples and makes for a much more competitive league.

I have to believe the only reason an offer to join the rumored "new conference" (with Notre Dame, North Dakota, Denver, Miami & others) was extended to Western is because they belive Jeff Blashill is going to stay and build the program into a real contender. (Perhaps a favor called in by old pal Rico). It can't be on merit of what Western has done in the NCAA hockey landscape thus far. It's my opinion, that if Blashill was offered the Red Wings assistant job and left Western, that offer to Western of joining the rumored new conference would be pulled back.

Also, not to downplay the opportunity or anything. It speaks very highly of J. Blashill that he is being considered for the Red Wing assistant job in the first place. Congrats to him and good luck while chasing that dream of coaching in the NHL. If not in the immediate future, then in the years to come.

The CCHA had better be aggressive, as I believe the WCHA will be. I could see them grabbing Alaska & NMU leaving the CCHA w/o a automatic bid. (CHA type conference).
I am hoping for the above new conference BUT This bears watching........
CCHA teams need to declare their intentions at Aug Mtgs.

I suppose they could look at Canisus, UA- Huntsville, etc but that would be a less desirable schedule and lots of travel.
McLeod may not be willing to let the W fade away.......I hope Pletsch is up to the task.

Part time Pletsch? Makes you really wonder what if anything he can do.
