    Re: UNH Wildcats 2012-2013 Postseason Thread

    From nhl.com article on Brett Pesce:

    "I had to earn my spot," Pesce told NHL.com. "In the beginning of the year, I wasn't getting as much playing time as I usually had in the past, but [associate coach] Jim Tortorella taught me a lot and really helped step up my game. Toward the end of the year, he was giving me time on the penalty kill and 5-on-5. I'm thankful for that."

    look on the bright side, with guys like ayers/souza/ciocco making waves in the industry, you should have a quality young coach in place when whistling dick does retire.

    [QUOTE=NCAA watcher;5731602]Tale of two senior managers whose work force consists of 18-24 year olds. The first trusts kids. For players, he provides them encouragement to trust their own abilities and surprisingly, the kids want to play for him. He recognizes the need for contemporary mentorship, and consistently hires youngsters with little or no NCAA experience to mentor. Mike Cavanagh had no experience, Scott Paluch had no experience, Greg Brown had no experience, and now Ayers has no experience.

    The other senior manager does not trust kids. He wants them to do only what he says, follow instructions, and success comes from hard work and following his instructions and systems. In turn, the solution to problems is to make his message louder. Thus, he surrounds himself with his own contemporaries.

    As much as I respect your opinions, your comment that Umile does not "trust" kids is pretty harsh. I am sure the way he looks at this is that his method of operation that he has used since he became coach has worked pretty well. Okay, no national championship but plenty of accomplishment, especially compared to 90% of D1 schools. He is certainly not going to change now, pushing 65 and heading into his 24th year behind the bench. Umile is a different person that York, you can see that in public comments and his demeanor on the bench. Every manager operates differently, in every industry. Some nurture, some don't. I don't think there is a right way or a wrong way to do this. Jim Madigan has a young staff at Northeastern, same with Mike Dennehy at Merrimack. how's that working out for them?

    This is unbelievable. NCAA Watcher has captured the ethos surrounding the UNH men's ice hockey staff, led by the head coach, in as few a words as possible. One would almost think he has played for UNH and experienced the atmosphere surrounding the .... "if your one of my old buddies I'll hire you as an assistant because I do not want to be second guessed." I applaud Watchers observation and comment.
    I agree, Watcher's posts are always spot on. He shows a major reason why UNH will most likely never win a title with the status quo.

    Great post, Watcher. Maybe Monty will be the next hire - seems to fit a certain pattern.

    Are you saying he needs to lose some hair before UNH would consider him?

    if an up and coming asst with no college experience is good enough for BC, no reason it shouldn't be good enough for UNH when the time comes.

    Just saw on twitter that Ayers has been hired by BC. Account is @russbites. It was a RT that showed up on my feed.

    This is not a big problem of course. Marty has a lot more on his plate than thinking about hockey coach succession plans that may not happen for another five years or more. But he should file away the Maine experience in his memory bank. And I think Chuck is right that Umile is the third oldest coach in D1 right now. Still got a lot of energy though.

    Well, it should be, at least to some degree.

    As far as Coach Umile's legacy, perhaps they should rename the HE Regular Season championship trophy after him. Seriously. Is there anything more fitting? He's won that more than even you-know-who over at The Heights, and may be tied with Coach Parker during their shared time in the league.
