      My personal conspiracy theory is that Don Granato will be the head coach and Max Gildon was tipped off prior to committing. Even as a Badger fan it surprised me that a potential top 5 NHL pick would select the Badgers during their free fall.

        I wouldn't be shocked if that were to be the case. It reminds me of when Auston Matthews mysteriously added Wisconsin to his list of potential schools in the middle of last year, well after it was clear how atrocious the Badgers were. The potential for Granato to go there was the only explanation I could think of that would explain why a 1-and-done guy like Matthews would do that.

        It's clear that the decision to let Eaves go was already made prior to this week, so it would make sense that the search has been going on.

        Edit: Or Mike Babcock is going to say "see ya!" to the Leafs to coach the Badgers, because the Babcock Dairy was too much to pass up.

          Is the application deadline related to any kind of deadline for when a decision has to be made? As has been discussed here, there are a lot of potential candidates who would likely be both excellent and realistically interested candidates. I could see the selection process going well beyond that date.

            Is it possible Max Gildon plays for us next year? We really need some good defenders coming in. Hate to see Linhart/etc bobble the puck and give it away constantly...

                After some personal research, I don't understand the big whoop about Don G. He started coaching in 1993. As a HEAD coach he has: 5 years not making the playoffs, 5 years of losing in the 1st or 2nd rounds of playoffs, 1 year lost in finals, and 1 championship. (3 years no results shown and 1 year came in at mid season). Am I missing something? I'm not being a smart ***; I just don't see much there.

                Even though he didn't do much better in the USHL, because of his coaching at a higher level, I prefer Oz; the Great and Powerful.

                    His overall coaching record is (not including this year): 466 wins, 338 losses, 48 ties.
                    He's had 3 losing seasons. He's had 12 winning seasons. He's had 6 seasons with a winning percentage above 60%, 3 of which were 70% or higher.

                    This year he's coached the USA NTDP U18 team to a 36-11-1 record. They average 3.5 GPG, 2.46 GAPG, 21.4% PP, and 83.2% PK.

                    He's got some connections to a lot of recruits.

                    Last bit: the NCAA doesn't exactly compare to the USHL, ECHL, and AHL. There's a lot that goes into that stuff, for example call-ups to the NHL while he was coaching the AHL.

                    Edit: Wonder if Oz would sign on as lead assistant under Don Granato? That would be an awesome 1-2 pairing.

                      Let's have two threads. Why not.

                      Nate Leamon would probably be my #1 choice. I don't see it happening though.

                        He coaches u17 correct? Not u18 and they are 21-26 in the ushl. Or am I missing something?

                          Pretty sure it's going to be Oz.

                          Let me rephrase that. If I were a betting man, I would put my money on Oz.
