Goalies quite often are a different breed...never met a goalie that was really "normal" ...I think it comes from taking too many pucks to the melon... :confused:

As a converted baseball catcher to goalie, I resemble that remark!:D

There is an ex-NHL player here who does a lot of training and development in MN and has built a large NA training business. He makes a comment about F-D-G who he knows and has played with. He said F become coaches and salesman, D become administrators and VP & G become Presidents, CEO or great leaders - he said although goalies often are knocked they are very competitive are very good watchers and spot ideas and their energy is often very motivating.

It would appear that if someone doesn't like what is being said or which direction a thread might be taking that it can mysteriously fade to black...:confused:

IMHO it is better to lock it than to delete it, specially in this particular example, as I don't recall there being any outrageous or offensive postings in that particular thread. (Or did I miss something ?)

Do you remember who started the thread? On most forums, the OP can delete the entire thread by deleting his/her initial post in the thread.

Anyway...as I was saying, Glen Hanlon and Gerry Cheevers had less than stellar careers as bench bosses. Patrick Roy ...well, isn't he on probation now?

I had pointed out that Emile Francis may have been the most successful goalie-turned-coach in history.

What about Eddie Giacomin... didn't he do something for the Penguins?

Can't think of any present female head coaches in the NCAA that were once goalies...maybe it's time that there is. ;)

Only an female assistant or two in NCAAs were goaltenders.

I would have to agree that the Cat was probably the most successful. It was Eddie Johnston, not Giacomin who coached for several years in Pittsburgh. I don't think that Giacomin ever coached.

One of the greatest hockey minds ever and probably the best goalie ever to play the game turned out to be a dud as a Coach. Jacques Plante coached the Quebec Nordiques of the WHA with very mediocre results. Apparently he was very frustrated that his players did not share the same absolute devotion to the game that he did.

Ron Low coached in Edmonton for a number of years, both as an assistant and Head coach.

Can't think of too many others who coached in the NHL. I believe that Turk Broda had pretty good success coaching the Toronto Marlies Junior team after he retired from the Leafs.

this was part of the deleted postings earlier but
Jacques Martin was a St. Lawrence goalie
and has performed quite well in the NHL for
several years as well as receiving the Jack Adams
award in 1997-98 I believe.
