    Red and Guy behind the bench, Grant back in his perch above center ice and give Tyler some graying hair and about 6" platform shoes and it'll be my freshman year all over again! Hell, I might ask for my job back to be a part of that!

Whether TW was doing the right things or not he is doomed to fail if he an asst or assts who are undermining his authority from within. BC may not have spoken out publicly before but he clearly had not bought in....and you cant hide that from people no matter how hard you try.

    That would absolutely be a red flag for me...
    Maybe he tried to point that stuff out to Whitehead, to make his points with him, and was ignored, or told to remember his place as an assistant. maybe it would have been better if he had quit on principle, said "it's time to move on". Some people would respect him more for doing so, some might see it as quitting.

    Bottom line its NOW the Gendron ERA and lets look forward,there's plently of work to be done...plus the off-season is short at this point...my guess and maybe NOT a very good one is that Gendron goes with a clean slate and brings in 2 New Assistants,well maybe not new to Maine but it will be his OWN staff and I think one name that will come up will be Guy Perron. I am looking forward to the NEW LOOK that will be Maine Hockey for the 2013-14 season and beyond.

    yet somehow everyone knows "those other guys" were disgruntled. I'm sure Bob thought about what he did before he did it. I'm guessing if Red doesn't hire him its for reasons beyond what he said about Tims coaching.

This is not a defense of TW its a commentary on why any new coach will have red flags about hiring BC unless theres already a strong personal relationship that predates this lapse of professional judgment
    Timmay's dead? I know it seemed like he was dead for many of us.......when is the funeral? Will BC not be invited? Do we need a koombaya session for everyones feelings?

    The teams he won with were because of Walsh

    Possible to hide from a head coach if you dont buy in? Absolutely. From 30 players on the team? Definitely not. Im not saying Tim shouldnt have been let go but who knows what might have happened if everyone had just sucked up their pride and bought in instead of pulling in different directions on the same rope?
