    Re: Maine Hockey Thread II: The Search for Spock

    i'm intrigued by the hiring... say what you will about the "career assistant" role... he was on a championship staff at maine, nj, and yale...hopefully, it's not a coincidence... better selection than tortorella, for sure... oz would have been interesting too given the midwest/how are his ushl contacts perspective...

    Second, jack capuano coming back to Maine was soooo completely unrealistic that it was not even funny. Numerous posters on here were really reaching with their claims of, "I'm sure he'd like to home for dinner every night." Oh yea...leave 800k a year on the table just so he can be home for dinner, lol....

    Red will do a good job. He really needs a good recruiter though and it's not bob corkum or kerluke...

    As a unh fan I am very happy with this hire
    congrats. you bet "the field" and won... way to go out on a limb....

    Considering the names we heard today, I am pleasantly surprised. I'm not as excited as if it had been Gwoz, but I am genuinely happy for Red. He was the assistant for my years with the team and I have already heard from a current player that they are excited to get started. It is so weird...back then Red seemed like a natural successor to Shawn, then he left and became a lifelong assistant. Now all these years later he is back. One thing I can promise is that we will see one of the best-conditioned teams in Hockey East. I expect the dryland training will be epic.

    Funny no one's offered an answer to the easy question.....if he's so good, why didn't he get that chance?

    Add: You know what? Screw it. Maybe it'll be alright......what other choice do we have but to hop on board Team Red?

    My twitter has been going bananas (see what I did there?) for the last 40 minutes or so... CHN says three sources...Red is first choice, Osiecki #2...

    AAAAnnnnnd...Melissa Kim is the last one on the bus...an hour after she tweets about her 'mini-vacation'...so much for that!

    Well as much sense as my posts made on why Cap might come to Maine, regardless of how ridiculous it would seem, I was WRONG! Not Cap, Not Cronin, Not Corkum as many others were certain of, but Red, White and Gray Gendron.

    Boy I hope this is the right hire? Because Montgomery would have made a hell of a lot more sense to get the fan base excited. I loved the way Yale played hockey when I was in Pittsburgh and hated the way UMASS played when Red was there. So interested in finding out what Red's philosophy will be. Also curious who his hires as assistants will be. Don't expect Corkum to be here with this hire, is Kerluke still onboard? Shocked it took this long to hire a coach when it was one of the early applicants and think the whole talk about how deep the pool of applicants was is now a joke. Abbott is now closer to William "Bud" Abbott in terms of believability. So we know who is behind the bench but not who is in first! But unlikely to be Maine in the short term. No $ from me until I see some results!

    Why should we trust a business casual dressed bus driver?
