      no, it's not too late............ but after very little from the last two recruiting classes ,JG , (thanks lil Ulffie), Smith and Matheson, it would be a nice change to have a loaded class because we could sure use one

      AND Mookie was too splashed. He had to have been because he's always in there

I think the career assistant at a top flight program is not a prime candidate for smaller school HC jobs in modern college hockey.
        Quick footnote.......This statement about Cavanaugh is completely false, not one assertion is fact. Just FYI.

          From what i understand, he withdrew his name from consideration for the UMass job because of how much of a ****show the process was.

            It was (is) my understanding he withdrew his name after they hadn't talked to him in over a week since the first conversation, and during that span of time multiple candidates had been offered the position and turned it down.

            It is definitely possible you are closer to the situation or that the truth lies in between both of our understandings.

              No, this was before he went to Clarkson as HC and BG as HC. Obviously if this happen after his stints at these 2 schools, Flynn would have hired him since he did have proven coaching experience under his belt.

                Regarding whether or not Bavis will stay on:

                At the press conference, Quinn said he hadn't talked to him Monday or Tuesday because Bavis was on the road recruiting. If there was any uncertainty as to whether Bavis would have a job, he'd have been brought in from the road immediately. Since that didn't happen, Bavis will have a job for at least this upcoming year. Whether or not he decides in a month or two to look for something else since he got passed over, who knows.

                  That is my guess on it (only a guess). Plus Quinn said he looked forward to working with him again... and if that "again" is not next year, when is it? Are they going to tell Bavis not to come back, only to have Quinn re-hire him 3 years down the road or something?

                  I would think ultimatley the choice is Quinn's... so who knows, he could go "status quo" for a year and then re-evaluate after that...

                    My point is that York HAD the resume and Flynn STILL hired Cedorchuk.

                    You do realize that York won at bg 1984, right? Ceglarski had no intention of retiring yet. So are you suggesting they should have hired York over Ceglarski in 1972?

                          That's how I see this playing out. Parker and Powers (combined age = 190) both retire, Bavis stays put for one year. Quinn brings in his own guy for the other assistant job. Bring back Kenny Roche baby! Anyway, I can't see Quinn wanting to inherit half of his staff and keep the guy on beyond next year but who knows - maybe it ends up working out.

                            Quinn will be retaining both Powers and Bavis.
