    A little surprised Palocsik didn't make ECAC All-Rookie team, but neither did O'Connor last year, so in the big picture, who cares?

      Yes and No! It's no secret that the BG does not get the same type of respect as do others in the ECAC and Ivy, assuming everything being equal an accomplishment will go to the other teams. But I also understand why! BG has been perennially sub par and the only way to change that is by winning consistently. I have harped on this point until pigs fly!

      As for Palocsik, he was truly a revelation! Coming on D (much harder as far as progression and development) as freshman and performing the way he did is nothing short of spectacular. In my opinion, Palocsik had a better freshman campaign than O'Connor! His time will come!

          Congratulations to Coach Gaudet, always a class act.

            Just wait for Jeff Cox to say Jerry Keefe is interviewing for the job and then the day Dartmouth hires someone, he will pull himself out of consideration!

              Congrats to Coach Gaudet on a long and successful career! His Dartmouth teams of the early aughts were formidable, and they were always right on the cusp on making the NCAA Tournament. I wish Bob all the best in retirement.

                This news isn't something I was expecting to read when I got up this morning. I'm a big fan of Coach Gaudet for all of the reasons mentioned already and it'll be strange to see someone else behind Dartmouth's bench when we get back to playing hockey again. This is also an opportunity for Dartmouth to inject some new life into a program that has at times lately been on the edge of moving ahead but just hasn't been able to do it.

                  Congrats to Coach Gaudet on a long tenured career. I understand he might've had mixed success in the standings, but I always had an appreciation for him as a leader who wanted his teams to play the game the right way -- always well coached and hard to play against.

                  I wonder if locals in the know can shed light on how they think the search will unfold. Does D typically hire "their" people (alums, or those with Ivy affiliations) or will they kick the doors open and try to find the best fit, regardless of their background ?

                    There are some schools where Keefe would be a good fit. None, however, in the Ivy League.

                    BTW, Bob Gaudet has always been a class act and great ambassador of the Big Green.

                      Ben Barr is always floating out there. He'll eventually find a home.
                      But Rick Bennett would be an interesting pick. Union would (sorta) keep him forever. But Dart would be more supportive.

                        Why do you say that? He was an assistant at Brown prior to Northeastern.

                          Ken Campbell of the Hockey News just tweeted that he thinks Ben Lovejoy is the leading candidate to take the position.

                              Zlax,
                              Itís good to see that thereís room in your aching heart to harass posters and fans from a college other than Providence. Given your dour disposition, I would wager that it would never occur to you that Jerryís pulling himself from consideration might have been done for the benefit of other parties, rather than for him to save face. First, he may have wanted to let the scores of NU Friends of Hockey as well as his players, recruits and colleagues at the University that the matter has been settled and that he is staying.

                              Secondly, By pulling his name out, he may have been sparing UVM the possible embarrassment that may have accrued from his rejection of the offer they made to him. Itís hard to keep secrets, and a rejection doesnít make the job more attractive to other potential candidates.

                              The season (hopefully) is about 5 months away. Thatís plenty of time to find something to like about the sport!

                                At this point, I'd be surprised if Ben Lovejoy isn't named head coach (assuming he wants it). Too much smoke for there not to be some fire.
