    Now that you mention it, it was Lucia that started that whole thing by screaming at Olson as he skated past the bench. I remember that bemused look The Captain gave back to Lucy. Potulny had to step in for his embarrassing boss before he made a bigger fool of himself. I'm guessing Potulny is okay...

    3 HS titles as a player, 2 NCAA titles as a player and 2 WJC championships as an assistant. Will be interesting to see how he handles a bit of adversity that I assume he'll face in the beginning. Good luck to him and NMU.

    According to Ryan Stieg from the Mining Journal, Potulny signed a 5-year contract with NMU with "financial terms still being worked out."

    Congrats to NMU on the hire. Sounds like many are happy with the choice.

    Too early to say how good he can be or not. I think much depends on his AC choices as well. I thought it was kind of funny to say because of the size of the rink to recruit for speed. Is there a time you DON'T recruit for speed?

    Have not heard of any budget increase. Hopefully he is not hampered but commits he doesn't want. I know that sounds bad but what are you going to do if a kid Kyle recruited doesn't fit his "systems and style"?

    Being on the younger side he might see this as a stepping stone, question is how long if he does really well?
    Shyiak recruited bigs to try and slow down the faster and more skillful opponents in the oldWCHA.

    Good get, thinking outside the box.

    Nope. I'm sure that won't be decided unti after next week's WCHA Meetings and AHCA coaches convention. I'm sure he will keep the names to himself until the hires are made. He did say he'd be meeting with the current assistants on Friday.

    DD, would you say this hire means that there is a bigger commitment on the part of administration, to funding hockey?

    I don't see how this would infer an increased funding commitment.

    What are the chances that Potulny will keep NMU assistant coach Rob Lehtinen on his new staff???? What about Doc Lehtinen????

    **sigh**

    Another year, another Packer home game on the probable Green Bay weekend (10/20-21)... Guess this is karma for getting a hotel room for like $40/night for the weekend back in 2013 or whenever the last time hotels were under $175/night...

    why didn't you just make a reservation for the likely weekends and then cancel the ones you don't need?

    All Fall weekends command the same rate as a football weekend this far in advance. Hotels don't drop the prices on the bye/away weekends till after the schedule is released. I could book early, but I'm paying $300+ for a two night stay in a two-star hotel. Then I'm asking for price matches as the rates plummet. There is no incentive to book early. It just adds hassle.

    No chance Jr stays. Maybe Rob. And Doc can remain as team doctor....but should not be on the bench acting like a coach.

    Doc's involvement with NMU Hockey during the Comley era was in a purely medical capacity. This changed when his son Robert was done playing and Walt Kyle was the coach. John Olver was an assistant coach at the time, and Doc gave up his long time coaching position with the Marquette Electricians.

    Thanks. You are correct. He was appointed VA in 2006. Nevertheless, he is and has been an Assistant, not simply, "acting like" one.
