    Tony Esposito played three seasons from 1964-67. The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play hockey until after he was gone, so he left because he used up all his eligibility.
    Not to mention that although Esposito was a very good college goalie, he wasn't the Best on the team.

Of the coaches I’ve worked with, if they’re saying it in public, it’s already been said much more definitively in the room. It’s very rare that a coach would say anything in the media that is a surprise in the room.
    Did you listen to the JSH and how it was used, in context? He started off the show by giving himself an F grade and the team a D. Those are very stinging grades, arguably, more stinging than some anecdote about a conversation that sums up the reason the coach and team were graded like they were.

    I watched a good amount of playoff hockey this weekend. The winning teams played a team oriented, hard ice, strong puck possession, low turnover game, and won 50/50 battles. (Hmmm... Where have I heard that winning before?) Anytime a player got cute, the puck was turned over or the goalie was sitting there set up for the shot. Most goals had a screened goalie or off a rebound. I only saw one blue line blast beat an unscreened goalie.

    I'm glad coach still hangs around this message board so he can address these issues first hand.

    I don't disagree with this but I do think this is something that could play badly with potential recruits and be used against them by other coaches...much like Marv's impending departure.

    So from this comment, I'll conclude that what Joe says on the air doesn't affect the culture in the room.

    I think the boys are smart enough not to be influenced by the Joe Show.

    Next topic please. Maybe how we can spread manure more efficiently?

    I had something funny happen yesterday. I get Fastline, it''s a farming equipment sales magazine. The headline was, " New techniques in Manure Spreading"

    I laughed and laughed.

Or do you think it serves the team better if the coach stays away from the cliches? Most of us here are just fans that want to see the coach do as much as he can to help the team win. How, in your opinion, does he accomplish that through his public remarks?

The bridesmaid doesn't pick out the brides dress.

    As to his, I guess the word everyone is dancing around is uncouth, remarks, listen to Frank Serratore after an Air Force loss. He is hilarious, but will take hard shots at his team if he feels they weren't playing up to the level they could be. He'll take on his team, the refs, the opposing coach, the opposing team, the fans. It's refreshing to hear a coach freely speak his mind and not hear the "we played hard, but they were just the better team tonight".

    I wonder how many times Serratore has gotten fined by the league or the NCAA?
