    Let's be honest. The chances the next coach, even if it was Leaman, wins multiple national championships at BC is highly unlikely. Not impossible but still unlikely.

    Sure, it would be nice to have a coach that could bring a National Championship to BC quickly but if they do and then leave that would not be good enough for BC fans. What BC fans want is another Head Coach that brings several NC's to BC staying here for the long run as well. It's ironic but about a dozen years ago there was discussion about who would replace York and it always came down to Brown or Cavanaugh as that team of coaches with York was and still is the greatest coaching combination in the NCAA's for a long time if ever. Cavanaugh was considered the frontrunner then with Brown considered needing more outside experience to overtake him. It appears that thought at the time actually is coming to fruition.

    And even if that did happen it would mean he did a good job at BC. Just like Jim Montgomery did at Denver.

    How do we know he simply has aspirations to go to the NHL? He might have aspirations to max out his leverage at PC and then bolt--like he might have been planning here. But if he actually made the jump to BC that doesn't automatically mean he would then move on to the NHL.

    This will prove to be the ultimate test of resume vs. family member. With what Leaman did at Union and has done at PC, his resume blows Greg Brown away. There's really no other way to spin that. Yet the source who gave me the Kevin Shea nugget is a BC guy through and through. He wants nothing to do with Leaman. And judging from what I see from BC people they want Greg Brown.
    BC would be silly to evaluate Leaman candidacy in a vacuum, apart from his commitment to the job. It would make zero sense to hire this guy knowing his aspirations to move to NHL, and those jobs open up every hour. The York philosophy works at BC, and Brown is well qualified to run it.
    Brown will have to balance his USA hockey type recruits, with higher end/speedier forwards from USHL, Sweden etc. York got away from the speed element for a few years and went with size.

    Well, that hopefully settles it, and it's Brown. I'll be very curious to see what he does with the staff. I really like to see him add someone to work with the forwards. My first choice would be Ben Smith but I don't know if he's ready to retire but he's talked about wanting to jump into coaching after his career. Another name I'd be interested in is Stephen Gionta who's a pro scout with the Lightning. A couple other names to keep an eye on would be Jeff Giuliano who's an assistant at UNH and Benn Ferriero, who's coaching midgets

    That's certainly the vibe this neutral has picked up on.

    Seems like Leaman's time in the 02918 is winding down, but this at least gives him a better floor from which to negotiate his next deal, presumably somewhere at the pro level.

    Leaman just signed long term deal with PC according to McMahon. Brown to be next BC coach. Leaman used BC for raise....seems like standard operation procedure for coaches nowadays.

    We'll probably never know if BC was going to offer him the job/if he was told that Brown was the guy/if he took it to the limit just to get more out of PC but in the end I do applaud BC for at least getting this far with an "outside" candidate.

    BC can now take credit for rampant HC salary inflation across HEA, first Luce, now Leaman.

    As a BC alum, glad that the school didn't overpay for a coach. The BC platform is good enough to attract recruits without overpaying for a "big name" hire.
