He was credited for seasoning the very young Yale D-Corps this past season, and turned Yale's Achilles Heel into an asset I met Red at Yale's Team Banquet last month and he is as genuine and down to earth as he looks. My good friend has three sons who are the stick boys for Yale and when they heard he was leaving, they were absolutely devastated. BTW, Reds not so secret nickname in the Yale stands was Captain Kangaroo! Best of luck to a great Coach.
    He and Grant ran the dryland training at Maine in the early 90's. I believe it was the best program in the nation at that time. I think he knows a few things about strength and conditioning

    Thanks for clearing up the conditioning issue. Some of us embellish things when a new coach is hired.

    Thanks for the kind words and congrats on your championship. I am sure Yale is going to build upon their success. We can only hope to meet a team like your's in the frozen four. Again - much respect and congrats from the Mainuhs.

    Maybe on 1 assistant. But Maine needs someone established to get out and recruit, with contacts. Been since Tanner House that we have recruited in the BCHL and while we have had some good Jr. Monarchs about time we expanded outside the ECHL and the Monarchs and Hitmen. Had finally made some inroads in Ontario with Shore, Hutton, Lomberg and Byron and Renouf coming in, but we need more!

Being second to a guy that has coached the Islanders from a disgrace into a playoff caliber team isn't a small feat, and JCapuano has shown his abilities to be top notch...........
    That was a stupid question. The press conference was about Red Gendron being selected head coach. It was about him and not about comparing him to some other applicant who may or may not have applied. Red gave the right answer.

    So some more thoughts...

    First and foremost - I have been watching Jimmy play in the pros and the guy doesn't make mistakes. That was a calculated move. And let's give him a fair shake - you don't move much out of your position unless a bad call is made. No officials - stationary big target- of the nub and off Wally's noggin... he never realized you could move like that. None of us could realize you had cat quick skills like that. In fact you are a very quick thinker given what I have read on these boards - and it kicked into high gear and you thought about cashing in on the insurance claim.

    Now, and after saying all of that, I think I am onto something with this doc on our side thing. I mean - let's gravy train this bad boy. If he cares about Maine hockey what better way! Imagine you, me, apple picker, hockey puck, and papa smurf all with primo wheel chairs and good parking and good medicinal use... think about that. And I will go so far as to promise we do the first ever naked five on wheels. (Basically we would put Wally in the lead and hook on like a dog sled team and let him pull us)

    That hockey team would think it is a riot - and they would score in buckets to see us try to pull that off.

    Just sayin...

    But, I do think you would have a hard time in any seat - let's face it. If you find a seat good for your lower back in that place your knees and legs will suffer. Me think the best rout would be to pull some strings to somehow get a handicap tag. Think about it - good parking - nice chairs behind the glass. You can use your head and find out what some sort of ailment you have... or she has... there has to be something you can come up with. And once you do - I say go all out and make sure it aligns with the "medicinal use" category. If you do pull this off then you can adopt me.

    Now I am assuredly going to he11. But oh well - it will be quite the smashing partaaay.

My wife would like to and even she doesn't fit in those seats now,very uncomfortable. So not sure what I'm going to do. Can't change seats until after tickets go out and come back to see who wants what.

    Let's keep Wally holding up the supports at one end and doing his best to keep the refs in line. Our 6th man.

    Blaise and Red are buddies...Blaise' isn't going anywhere to be an assistant...he was asked to interview at uconn and I am all but certain he interviewed for the head job at Maine...he was there supporting his buddy and is very excited about his first recruiting class at Colby.

    I have it on good word that Red is going to be interviewing people for his staff in the very near future. Not saying its a death sentence for kerluke and corkum, but.....it would certainly appear that he is not planning on keeping them... Red will hire the best people and those who give Maine the best chance at winning...

    Waterville isn't that far away. Maybe he is friends with Red.
