I don't remember him getting much talent for the women's team when he was HC either, budget issues and all that aside. Good hockey mind, good on the board I'm sure but can he recruit?
    That's how I remember the short Perron era. Not sure why he would be a top selection, he couldn't recruit.

    I think we should give some kudos to abbott. Not many people thought whitehead would be fired/bought out and I think he made a great hire with Gendron, even for some reason if it doesn't work out down the road, but I think it will..
    Yeah, agree....nutcases were wrong on some accounts. I think Abbott should be applauded for the job he's done orchestrating this.

    Never mind Timmay. That's over. Done. We got our wish.

    Don't post his name ever again on this forum board. Not you all bear, just all of us in this Maine Hockey nuthouse. Name all the good things that can happen to Maine Hockey by putting his name in another post here... That's what I thought... None.

    agreed. there's a reason why he left governor dummer and came back to maine hs hockey and it had everything to do with what was (or wasn't) between his ears.... and i assume it was more of the same as he made is way to the echl.

    jeebus!

    i was thinking a kid with a hell of a shot.... i just remember libby and charrier each having somewhere in the neighborhood of 60+ assists the year clukey went for 91 goals... he broke the old record against us... a kid that i still play men's league with jokes around that he wound up on national tv (scholastic sports america) as he stepped out from behind the net made a cross ice pass right onto clukey's tape.... a half second later it was in the back of our net....

    Son played against him growing up. When the puck on his stick, watch out.
