    fairly shrewd move on abbott's part... he knows that given the fans desire for jimmy and how that played out, that he is going to be second guessed at every turn with whomever is hired... not releasing a list of finalists "out of respect for their current positions" allows him to avoid the "what if they had hired so and so over so and so" debate...

    You accept the USAH position to meet the kids and to open up recruiting doors for those that have not already "committed". As I recall, Walsh did quite a bit with some of the USAH developmental teams as well...

    A lackluster and pathetic list.......let's hope that Larry was drinking heavily when he wrote the article.

    And it's time for Maine to stop worrying about facilities and start concentrating on increasing coaching salaries to a level that at least gives Maine teams a chance of having a quality coach someday........I think that the old saying "you get what you pay for" definitely describes Maine's current stable of coaches.

    Howard has been the difference for the Wings so far, and Nyquist is developing rapidly, though still perhaps a little too "Swedish" in his own end. He's coming along for sure, but Babcock doesn't play him much if he has the lead, and with good reason.

    I think that Goose has benefitted from watching Datsyuk, who is the best 2-way guy in the world right now, IMO... I'm thinking that Nyquist has a chance to be compared to him, if he continues to pay attention to his elders.
    I was noticing it was a lot of neutral zone and offensive zone faceoffs as well as the last 30-45 seconds of powerplays...but he is for sure making a difference and will become one HELL of a player. Good stuff, for sure...and nothing that another year or two of experience won't handle. Right now he bounces between the second and third line depending on the situation along with short PP shifts.
