Votes in the contest are unlimited.

The 40 vote limit is for the number of entries you get for the Stanley Cup trip prize.

Vote for Calumet!

I just heard during the 2nd intermission of the Rangers-Flyers game that Calumet won.

Yes, Calumet won!!! The money is needed for the old historic Coliseum and a NHL preseason game!! There will be fights for tickets to that!

Very good news for Calumet. The pitch video that mentioned the age and history of the place probably helped. Hockey fans are suckers for tradition. :p

The old Eagle River rink in WI came in 2nd and it has a great history as well. WI hockey hall of fame is there. In the warmer weather months if there is a fog in the rink the coaches have the players do fast laps CCW so the fog lifts in the wooden dome.

Just curious, does the CCW direction matter? (engineering mind wondering if there is something with the building that requires CCW to lift the fog?)

Apparently we have a new recruit. I'll let Shirtless talk about him.

BGSU HC Bergeron has accepted the Miami HC position. Good move for him, tough for BGSU.

So what BGSU alums are coaching and will put their hat in the ring?

It says in the news release Blasi was making $360K; whaaaah!
Curious if that was his salary or total package of some sort.
I'd like to see a graph of NCAA D1 hockey coaches salaries over the last 10 years. Seems like they are rising fast!
I wonder if the rise is sustainable? I see a lot of programs not being able to keep good coaches at this rate.

Edit:
Found this forum from 2010; there were some pretty high salaries back then also. According to a Miami poster Blasi was making $140K in 2008 so his salary jumped a lot but it appears there were several near the $200K range.

Found this on Pearson from 09/18 at https://www.michigandaily.com/section/sports/heres-what-every-michigan-coach-making-year

Mel Pearson (ice hockey)

Pearson is set to make $400,000 annually through the 2021-22 season.

That salary is split into a $350,000 base and $50,000 bonus each year.

For making the Frozen Four last year, Pearson received a bonus of two months base salary (approximately $58,000).

To buy Pearson out from his contract at Michigan Tech, Michigan paid $250,000.

If fired without cause, Pearson will be paid, “any earned but unpaid wages and vacation and an amount equivalent to the Base Salary in monthly installments for the remaining terms of this Agreement.” Pearson is required to seek another job as soon as possible in such a situation.

Saw a tweet saying Bergeron's salary at Miami is $305K plus bonuses. Nice bump for him.

I was thinking of his $250,00 base at MTU. No offense intended, but Blasi is no Mel Pearson.

The recruit, Carson Bantle, is rated a 4.25 star by NeutralZone. He previously played for SSM's Bantam team, and spent this past season with the Madison Capitals as a 16/17 year-old.


4.25⭐️Carson Bantle to MI Tech. Tall, high ceiling prospect who has improved his skating this past year. Athletic, long stride & able to make the quick, subtle moves in small areas. Has a heavy stick in the crease and is tough to move from the net front.

I would bet my last dime that Bg matched or was extremely close to matching that salary. In fact i'm surprised it's that low. Given what Blasi was making and doing a crappy job at I would have though Bergeron would start at that same number. I think it came down to intangibles. But you have to wonder with these type of alumni hires, what happens when ten years from now Miami is tired of Chris and he is tired of them.?
Now regarding the Michigan salary, I think Wisconsin is paying significantly more.Also what if Bergeron doesn't win any more than Blasi did, then what? I really dislike Miami anyway, so I hope they lose every game.

U17s who play the full USHL season putting up roughly a quarter of a point per game, as Bantle did, have a wide range of college outcomes. For every Joe Snively, who put up a point per game over four seasons at Yale, there's a Christian Cakebread, who struggled to crack Niagara's lineup and was ultimately cut. Hope Bantle keeps working hard.

Seems like the staff believe he has a big upside though.
