    I think most, except apparently the rest of the UAA embarrassment er fanbase, would agree a Head Coaching job in the WHL is miles better than a job in the WCHA, especially in a large market like Calgary.

    If you put major junior and college on the same playing field, this job for him is like getting the gig at Minnesota or Michigan. The Hitmen have been one of the most successful programs in the WHL in the last 10 years plus, and they're directly owned by the Calgary Flames, so he will be in that discussion should a position open in that family in the future. 2 years in, maybe he's the new head coach in Abbotsford... Who knows.

    Who said it wasn't? I think we (including UAF fans) were just very surprised by the move this time of year.

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    Ding ding ding. Especially in a place like Calgary (bigger than any WCHA market) that has a direct relationship with an NHL franchise. Most WCHA coaches would make a similar move, IMO.

    You've gotta move when the job is open.

    UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim – the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.

    So is UA_ looking for a rising Jr B coach from a big city?

    Don’t worry He would not take the slash in pay for some village employment.

    Maybe Rob Proffett, He used to be a Jr B coach who likes village life.

    Lance West officially promoted to head coach, no interim tag.

    Lance has certainly paid his dues and deserves the chance. He has been a big part of our recruitment effort for a number of years. The easy transition and the uncertainty of our budget situation also factor in. Even if they had wanted to do a national search, it would have been a tough sell because there are not many promises or commitments the administration could make in good faith. Good luck Lance.

    Go Nooks!

    Lance is still well-loved here. I hope he wins 30 WCHA games a season (as long as all losses are to UAH).

    The Daily News-miner put an "interim" tag on him in this morning's paper, but I'm assuming that's in error. The U press release did not refer to any future national search or mention any "interim" status. Of course, with our legislature, any coaching position is just "interim" status.

    This has been out there for a few days on many hockey sites, but thought I'd link to it here since in our minds Parayko will always be a Nanook. Good player, great kid.
    Parayko agrees to five-year, $27.5 million deal.

    I see we picked up a new 17-18 recruit, Max Newton with the BCHL Cowichan Valley Capitals (58-25-34-59). That’s five freshman forwards. Given there is budget pressure on scholarships, did we lose anybody with the coaching change?

    Jenks and Mullally are NOT listed on the 17-18 roster

    The departure of those two has been known for awhile. The on-line roster does not list Newton nor exclude any additional names as far as I can tell. Newton has good BCHL stats, but a late addition always raises an eyebrow.
