Okay...which one of you will hack the vote? It's the only way to make it interesting.

Anyone know of a reference that lists the hockey Assistant Coaches in Tech's history? Online sources such as hockeydb.com don't go back very far for assistants or only list the head coach, and none of Tech's printed hockey history materials seem to list assistants. Seems like the annual team photos at the Mac might be the only source.

I was trying to see who the assistants were in the 70s/80s when I was a kid. I remember the head coaches, but not many of the assistants. Thanks for the tip on EliteProspects. They were more complete than hockeydb, but still had major holes. I was able to reconstruct the assitants list from old team photos. Seems Tech didn't use an assistant until 1957 (Bill Lucier), didn't use a second assistant until 1973 (Rick Yeo) and didn't use a goalie coach until 1980 (Bill Rowe). The assistants (including volunteer/goalie coaches) were in order of arrival: Bill Lucier, Dave Draper, Dave Confrey, Dan Farrell, Glen Weller, Rick Yeo, Herb Boxer, Jim Nahrgang, Bill Rowe, Mel Pearson, Bruce Horsch, Darcy Way, Ken Martel, Mark Leach, Mark Vichorek, Scott White, Peter Wilkinson, Marc Boxer, Mark Maroste, Ian Kallay, Pat Mikesch, Randy McKay, Chris Tok, Damon Whitten, Dieter Kochan, Bill Muckalt, Steve Shields, Joe Shawhan. I may be missing a goalie coach or two.

I would recommend sending your research back to EliteProspects. They're usually pretty good about updating their database.

I fully expect Mel to absolutely tear someone at the WCHA offices a new one following this game and the major penalty call that was made on Watson. On a clean hit which no call was made during game play, Watson doesn't get a minor penalty, but a 5 MINUTE MAJOR penalty and then gets tossed from the game for having words with one of the refs. Absolutely AWFUL call on the play. That ref deserved any earful he got from Tech and then some...

Not sure how to feel about this 1 point.


Mel's postgame interview:
Given circumstances, huge point, we were behind all game, battled back, lost Neville early and Watson out, short bench
Their 5 min PP might've been key, stopped them, we have to play with that urgency from start
Good start, but gave up PPG and had to battle back all night
They put pressure up high on our guys, we'll make adjustments, like we did late in game
Didn't like their PPG, lost battle on boards, then out of position, need to do better on boards
We'll play better tomorrow night, not sure on lineup, We'll see on Neville, no Gould/Hietila, so a little banged up
Great effort by Leibinger and end of game during NMU break
Did a lot of forcing puck into areas we shouldn't have
Nearly sold out for tomorrow, should be loud, we need fan support, big game tomorrow
1st OT game, odd, big point, told our team we need to keep finding ways to get points on road

RYAN_ > You're sending me to an infomercial about all the great services Comcast offers? How about just fix the ones I'm already paying for every month before you try to get me to spend more money each month?

Erwin > Thank you for patiently waiting.

Erwin > Ryan, as I have checked on your account.

Erwin > NBC SN is on channel 689

RYAN_ > For those that will be reading this transcript later, it has now been more than 55 minutes for Comcast employees to try and determine which channels are part of my cable TV package...

Erwin > Ryan, please check if your can view channel 689.

RYAN_ > Um no it isn't. There isn't even a channel 689 in my neighborhood.

RYAN_ > Not even in digital preferred...

RYAN_ > By the way, I'm not at home or I wouldn't be trying to WATCH NBCSN ONLINE... Which is why this chat started in the first place. What city channel line up are you looking at?

Erwin > How about channel 73

RYAN_ > There are no channels between 70 (MSNBC) and 80 (Shopping).

RYAN_ > Do you know what city I live in?

Erwin > [ADDRESS] This is the address that I am checking Ryan.

RYAN_ > Hello?

Erwin > Ryan, may I ask if you can watch this channel on your TV?

RYAN_ > YES, I WATCH NBCSN EVERY WEEK ON MY TV. I HAVE BEEN DOING SO FOR OVER TWO YEARS!

RYAN_ > IT IS CHANNEL 206.

Erwin > Ryan, may I ask if you try watching NBCSN online before?

RYAN_ > Yes I have watched it online before. Tell you what since we are getting nowhere and I have already wasted more than 60 minutes of my time, how about you apply a $60 credit to my bill (one $ for each minute I've wasted) and I'll just end the chat because clearly, no one at Comcast seems to be able to solve this simple problem.

RYAN_ > Not to mention the show I wanted to watch ended more than 30 minutes ago...

Erwin > Ryan, I cant process a credit to your account for $60. I can only process a $20 credit maximum.

RYAN_ > How about three credits of $20 each?

Erwin > Ryan, that is all I can give.

RYAN_ > Sure that would be great. Clearly Comcast really values my time and continued business.

Erwin > Ryan, I would like to set proper expectations that this will reflect on your next bill.

Erwin > I will now process the credit to your account.

RYAN_ > Proper expectations? How about being able to watch all the channels I am paying for... That seems like a reasonable expectation, right?

Erwin > I understand Ryan.

RYAN_ > Before we end the chat, can you at least give me a nice canned sign-off about how important my business is to Comcast and that I am a valued customer? That would make me feel a lot better.

Erwin > Ryan, I have successfully process the credit for $20 on your account for your inconvenience.

Erwin > Is there anything else I can help you with today?

RYAN_ > No, I can't think of anything else that Comcast can help me with at this time. Nothing at all...

You know them well. To their credit, they couldn't offer me free HBO because I already have free HBO, free Showtime and free Starz from other phone calls in my two years as a customer. All of these channels for free for at least another 4+ months. But hey, it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to offer me something I already have because they clearly don't know what I have.
