    The insult to injury there was you ended up with a cap hit of 1.13 this past season in retained salary in order to offload Scuderi. You trade Sharp and bring back Daley to save some cap and find a replacement for Oduya, your coach won't play Daley in a role he is suited for (14 minutes a game as a third pairing guy is a joke of a coaching decision while instead giving guys like rookies Gustafson/Svedberg, Rozival, and even Ehrhoff all more time on ice per game then Daley), you trade goods you've damaged by not playing him for even worse damaged goods, which you then move on for Ehrhoff and retain salary for. You couldn't make that up and have anyone believe a team, GM, coach could all play their role in such a dysfunctional of a hot mess.

    At some point, you would think the GM might ask...hey coach, what do you think of that Trevor Daley guy...would you play him if we end up with him on the team? Like before you trade for him.

    If G.1 leaves after one season, I will be extremely disappointed. All this "it's a no brainer to come back to WI and coach together" will have been a bit of a sham.

    Plenty of good tickets still available for the Geoffrion Hockey Classic on Saturday. http://www.geoffrionhockeyclassic.org/

    Fun summer activity to get you out of the heat for a few hours. Lots of silent auction items, past items have included NHL game used jerseys, sticks, gloves, autographed photos and jerseys and hats, random other sports memorabilia.

    Chuck-a-Puck after the game to win a jersey from the game.

    Money raised goes to UW Health Burn Center. http://www.uwhealth.org/burn-center/burn-center/29458

    I also heard somewhere that some of the money may be going to help AJ Degenhardt battle MS. https://www.gofundme.com/aj-degenhardt-fights-ms

    I hope the novelty isn't wearing off. This is a very fun event and more important, money goes to great causes.

    They were the highest (by far) in the NCAA when they were hired. Someone with more motivation than me could look through the old threads....it was posted somewhere already.

    We won't be able to attend, we are leaving that AM for our annual St. Germain trip. It's a little sad, I miss LaBahn and that event is a lot of fun.

    I'll be honest, this is a bitter pill to swallow after one year. I figured 5, 6, 7 years down the road, not 1 friggin year. Al the BS about working together, friends, blah blah blah

    Maybe having big brother as his boss, wasn't what he thought it was going to be.

    Plus, it's the NHL and a team that has won 3 cups very recently. I would imagine that would be tough to pass.

    Sounds like GM and Coach fireworks and that is never a good situation to be in. I guess somehow that is better than working with your former teammate and brother. Makes no sense.

    Hometown NHL team, not traveling around all summer watching select tournaments and recruiting. I can see the appeal.

    Just makes all the PR from the hiring last spring sound hollow in my opinion.

    Might also being an assistant coach at the college level wasn't a right fit for him. So much of the job is solo travel and building recruiting relationships, where at most other levels coaching is much more about interacting with pre-selected players on a daily basis.

    The key now is to find a young upstart coach who Oz can teach his recruiting magic to.

    From following Oz on twitter, it certainly seems like he enjoys the travel and recruiting. Hope he wants to stick around for a while.

    Sometimes reality just doesn't match what you thought the dream would be.

    The Chicago Blackhawks: undermining hockey in Wisconsin since whenever it was Lloyd Pettit wanted to get the NHL in Milwaukee.
