    Recruit: Who are you and where do you want me to play?

    Rookie head coach in the NCHC? Say hello to the cellar rats because Gabinet's going to get schooled quick and often
    Jim Montgomery had only been a head coach in the USHL before getting the job at DU. Is that really much different?

    Sure, but any coach taking on a D-1 head coach position has people he can use for advice when needed. New coaches are always looking for mentors, unless the mentor is the competition, then he's peppering the now-guy-he-knows for inside information.

    Gabinet spent one year as a head coach in Canada and 5 months as an assistant in D1 Hockey. The year Gabinet coached NAIT, they went undefeated, but they were outstanding the year before under the previous coach. Unproven talent can surprise at times, but I would have rather had a Cary Eades or anyone who had been a head coach in this country.

    Yes, but with the exchange rate, undefeated in Canada is like 6-14-4 in the NCHC.

    Hey, everyone has to start somewhere. 250K for an On the Job Trainee coach seems like a solid financial decision for a school in dire financial straits
