A couple of players have left Tech for that reason.
It takes time, patience, and MONEY SPENT to rebuild. Just ask Tech!
If he had anything to substantiate these rumors, I wouldn't be arguing. A cryptic quote from Dunbar, Pleger or ANYONE that would be intimately aware of the situation would put this to rest. But he doesn't have it, since it's just that: unsubstantiated rumors.Well, rumours are rampant in the Michigan Soo that Lake Superior State Lakers of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association are contemplating a coaching change that would result in the dismissal of third-year bench boss Damon Whitten.
While there is nothing to substantiate what is being said...
I'll gladly eat crow if anything comes from it this season, but like myself & many others, both on and off these boards have said: if there isn't a turnaround in the next season (or two, if they extend his contract), then yeah, there probably will be a coaching change.
How do you think an article that speculated that the Greyhounds were going to close up shop, with nothing but unsubstantiated rumors to support it? People would be losing it & calling the writer out. This is no different.

Tune into The Hockey North show tonite at 5 pm with http://www.hockeynewsnorth.com + http://www.saultthisweek.com Randy Russon on Radio Station ESPN 1400 http://stream.1400espn.net for more spicy commentary about the good ship Lakers and the rumours around the Michigan Soo on a possible coaching change at LSSU, along with hockey, hockey and more hockey.
Whitten is not going anywhere . You don't hire a staff and after three years tell them sorry but you have to go. Recruits are getting better each year and scoring is starting to come back . How many years did they give Borek ? How many years did they give Roque? How many years did they give Anzalone his second time around ? Unless there were huge problems on the team that has to have only one outcome , you are looking at your coaching staff for a while yet.
Season over . Make weight lifting and cardio a huge program for the off season . Make the Lakers the best conditioned team in the nation for next season .
According to veteran sports writer and broadcaster Randy Russon, James Roll and Luke Morgan will not be returning to the Good Ship Laker next season for various reasons and "issues at Lake State" as heard on tonite's Hockey North Show on ESPN Radio Station 1400.
They join the sophomore sensation Owen Headrick, along with Kristophers Bindulus as players not returning next season.

What a horrible year for the WCHA . Not a single team in the top twenty and most at the bottom in the power rankings. MN State was trying to jump leagues and play in the NCHC . I think they can kiss that chance away.
Randy Russon stated on last night's Hockey North Show on ESPN Radio Station 1400 that Mitch Hultz is another player that is rumoured to be jumping the Good Ship Laker during the off-season, according to his sources.
Also, it's Hults, not Hultz.
