    Just because it didn't draw blood doesn't mean it didn't hurt like hell. He took that stick about as flush as you possibly can. Plus, if you're insinuating he embellished that, I've seen far worse and from plays where contact was barely made.

    Despite his big game pedigree I'm sure all it will take is one instance of Kreider not emulating Callahan/Girardi and diving head first in order to try and block a shot for Torts to bury Kreider again. I mean, who cares if the kid has speed and can score goals, right?

              I think we can find an extra Pinhead Nation shirt for Coach Ayers.

              Dear Gibber, please repost the pic of Ayers shhhhing the BC fans at the Whit. That was one great day.

                      So with the Ayers hiring which I'm a huge fan of, one coaching position down, one left to go. The kid is reporting 3 former Eagles, Mike Mottau, Ben Eaves, and Jeff Giuliano are candidates. Always loved Eaves as a player and leader, and I think after injuring his knee his senior year he just never got back to his Junior year level. Mottau is an obvious legend, and one of the best college defensemen I have ever seen. Giuliano is out of the scrappy forward, hard working mold but made a nice career for himself.

                      Personally I think it should be a forward minded coach, having Brown and Mottau as coaches may be a bit d-orientated heavy just imo. Giuliano and Evaes are both guys who most recently played in Europe, and seem to have that character that could carry over from Cav. Personally I'm rooting for Eaves, just loved watching him play and think he had a really attack driven mind before the knee kind of limited his abilities. Also Eaves comes from a coaching family, and has already expressed interest in coaching after his first retirement back in 2010 for Norfolk in the AHL. He's also a fitness freak/guru with a masters in Kinesiology from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities which could really be another great aspect he could add to the staff.

                      Just my take but who knows, could be someone else from totally out of no where.

                        What I'm a little confused by is I've seen a couple people say you can only have three paid coaches (York, Brown and someone else). Wouldn't an up and coming coach like Ayers be taking a paid position? Does that now mean the people you just mentioned are out of the picture? Does it mean they'll simply be looking for an older coach who doesn't need the money? That's what I need someone to clear up because only being allowed to have three paid coaches is new to me--I've only just seen that mentioned recently.

                          It must be 3 paid additional coaches to the HC cuz they've had Cav, Brown, and Logue on as coaches for close to 10 years as a trio of assistants and Logue is supposedly retiring, which is the reason for the Ayers hiring.

                          I could be totally wrong though, and one of these guys would have to be a "volunteer" assistant which is quite possible

                            Right. I just didn't know if Logue was a volunteer coach...

                              After a quick search Merrimack, PC, Maine and UNH all have 3 additional coaches. 2 assistants and a goalie coach. But some other schools only list 2 assts like Umass Lowell, umass amherst and Northeastern lists a "volunteer" assistant so your guess is as good as mine at this point.

                              • Re: Boston College '12-'13 Part III: Save us Hobey-John Gaudreaubey; you're our only

                                http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/news/story?id=6197210

                                But to get a true sense of Logue's value to the program, consider BC head coach Jerry York's assessment. "He's almost like a quarterback coach," York says.

                                With one important distinction. While most D-I football programs employ between 10 and 11 paid coaches -- seemingly a coach for every position -- hockey programs have a head coach and two paid assistants. And rarely is one of those positions filled by the goalie coach. The job, frankly, is a labor of love.

                                "I'd love to make a couple bucks at this thing, but we're not quite there yet," says Healey, a commercial lender for TD Bank. "Right now, it's just fun giving back to the sport that gave me a lot."

                                BU's Parker, when asked why there are so few paid goalie coaches, says "It is kind of odd, in some ways, in that the goalie position is so important, you'd want to have that guy [the goalie coach] totally involved in the program."

                                Even many D-I goalies admit they were surprised to learn that most goalie coaches on the collegiate level are strictly volunteers. "I actually had no idea that the majority of goaltender coaches throughout the country were unpaid," Muse says. "I thought we had a unique situation here at BC. But it is a position that definitely needs a goalie coach, someone to help out."

                                "Goalies haven't gotten any respect for the last 50 years," Healey says, laughing. "Way back, the goalie was the fat lazy kid who couldn't skate who was thrown between the pipes. That mentality is still around, to some degree. Things have gotten better, and a lot of teams now respect and value what a goalie coach brings to the table, but I still don't think it's the equal [to position players]."

                                Healy says the coaching evolution hasn't caught up with the evolution in the position. That reality is reflected in the NCAA regulations regarding the number of permissible paid coaches, which don't recognize the singular requirements that goaltending demands. For example, D-I hockey programs are allowed the same number of paid coaches as D-I basketball programs. However, hockey teams have twice as many players, and there's no position as unique as the goaltender on a basketball team.

                                So even wealthy programs that could afford to pay a fourth coach to work specifically with the goalies can't, because the NCAA prohibits them from doing so. As a result hockey programs, which rely on paid assistants to recruit, must make do with volunteer goalie coaches.

                                "It's become the lot of the goalie coach," Bertagna says. "You're the specialist who comes in a limited number of times, so it's natural that you get the short straw financially."

                                The NCAA further limits the role of goalie coaches who make a living teaching the position. If they were affiliated with a specific program, they couldn't visit the players they instruct, for fear of recruitment violations.

                                "If you're a coach, you can't go out and watch other kids, because it counts as an evaluation. You've got to play by the NCAA rules," Dennehy says. "Brian Daccord's stable of goaltenders is increasing because he can go out and see them. That would be near to impossible if he was coaching."

                                Daccord, a former Bruins goalie coach, provides goaltending instruction for goalies from 6 to 60 in numerous settings -- from clinics to camps to private lessons -- through Stop It.

                                "At the end of the day, if it wasn't for the NCAA, I'd be coaching college hockey," he says. "There's two things that prohibit development coaches from coaching the goalies in college. One is the money. There is no money. Number two is that a volunteer coach is not allowed to recruit."
