    Now THIS sounds like the University of Maine athletic department we know and love.

    Who knows what is right at this point, you have guys digging to get the scoop and throwing names out there. Not sure why you'd have to protect Oz's name from being made public, he doesn't even have a job.

    The Facebook group that had been touted in this thread has morphed into a group for University of Maine Hockey Fans. It's where Bob posted his letter (via Laura Reed) before coming here.

    I'm not going to get upset over something that hasn't happened yet.

    But if it's Tortorella, I won't be that happy.

    BREAKING NEWS!

    Well, not really. Not even worth clicking.

This promises to be an eventful weekend.

    No offense to Jim, but if we hire Jim Tortorella, and it took this long to do it I will be completely underwhelmed! Had heard rumblings they were waiting for NHL season to end to talk to a few applicants. We hear there is an impressive group of applicants, but they only confirm the same 4, for the most part unimpressive lot, I refuse to believe this. If it is Jim T., then clearly we got the wrong Jim and this will do nothing to fire up the fan base. Unless of course John shows up and challenges to fight us unless we throw our support behind Jim.

    Guess I'll wait like the rest of you. Was at Maine with Jim, good goaltender, has had a nice career in coaching, but talk about a "safe" and "dull" pick. Isn't that what we had before?

    Folks are convinced its Torts? That ain't going to go over well, that name won't fill Alfond on its own, thats for sure.

    before he was at cony, he had coached at brunswick. i missed out on him coaching me because (my understanding) some parents didn't like how he treated the players.... he had some good talent at cony in the early 90's, just not enough to surpass waterville, lewiston, dom's and nya. Ed Washuk in net, Keith Deschamps, Bryan Cheever, drawing a blank as it's been a while, but they were solid.

    those nya teams gutted brunswick/ararat (Couture, Couture, Hardin, Wallace, Saxton, Saxton, Coombs, Coombs, Coombs, Johnson, Treworgy, Flower)

    Corkum . . . I would definitely give him a chance to demonstrate what he'd do at the helm. I'd give him a chance to prove me wrong. But I can't get past the fact that his tenure coincides almost perfectly with the bottom falling out. I just can't.

    Red Gendron? I don't think so. But then I'm the crazy person who thinks that the landscape of college hockey has changed so much that I don't put much value on ties to the 92-93 season. And I can't get past the career assistant thing.

    Jim Tortorella, Pellerin, and/or Osiecki? I guess I'll hang around and watch from afar. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.Best I can do.
    agreed almost 100%
