    I went to college in Milwaukee and lived there 6 years. Great town. Freaking amazing. Tons of fun and lots of good people live there. I did have my car broken into when I was a freshmen. But you'll have that sometimes in a big city. No need to be scared as long as you don't go to the bad parts of town.

    I wouldn't move back there because of traffic though.

Or really reach for a young up and comer like Tyler Krueger at UWSP. He's probably too young, but he could be a stud coach.
    From that list I’d go with either Coughlin or Brooks. I’m a little skeptical on Krueger, though I do have some great recent memories at KB Willett (2019 championship, first undefeated D3 team). Having class with some of their better players during the 2019 run was also pretty cool. They did seem to take a step back once Ryckman transferred to be a backup goalie for Northern Michigan. Brooks built up a great winning culture at UWSP and I’d love to see what he can do in Madison.

    Used to be a slam dunk that Oz would be the guy, but I’m not so sure that’s still true.

    That could make things really interesting. I’ve struggled to be a fan of Tony and it’s hard to tell if he was improving as a college coach or if he just got lucky with two returning studs and losing two defensive disasters.

    And no one behind you.

    Yes, the first row 2nd deck is my preferred spot at the KC, it probably be good at the BC too.

    I’ve noticed on a lot of his plays that he’s just really good at sneaking into open spaces. And his diminutive stature does kind of help him slip around. He’s got a gift for it.
    The game 4 OT winner vs Winnipeg is a great example of this. Snuck out of a 2v2 board battle and dished the puck to Toffoli for the winner.

    It'll be a sad day if he ever gets hurt. The NHL does feel like it is moving away from big hits, so that is hopefully good news for Cole

    Also, he's got another assist tonight. 6 points in the playoffs. Really annoys me that Minnesota never put in Boidy against Vegas while icing some really bad players (Johansson, Bjugstad to name two). Young players can't shine if they are not given the chance.
