Leaman was one of the final three candidates for the Head Coaching job with the USNDPT U-17 Team over the summer that eventually went to Danton Cole. So I could see him throwing his name in the hat for the MSU opening.

yea, I think you're right. I thought Cole was the leading contender for MSU job at one point. Nate's stock will rise considerably if he has a good run in tourney. BTW - you do an awesome job on recruit thread. thnx for all your work on that :)

There is usually an out clause for specific teams. I'm sure for Appert it includes DU and Ferris State. I'm not sure which team Leaman would have in his clause, but I'm sure it exists. And, yes, these teams would likely have to go through the AD to contact the coach.

Do you think that SA would ever be interested in the Ferris job? From waht I ahve read he was never too happy with his situation there. Also there are periodic rumors that the program will fold.

It would probably only fold with the formation of the BTHC and BHHC. Maybe the CCHA teams left over would want to collaborate with some of the Western Atlantic teams.

I don't think he'd leave for Ferris today or tomorrow, but I don't think that it's out of the realm of possibility that he could jump for Ferris five or so years down the road if some of the other factors (AD, school support, etc.) change.

We'll see, but Michigan budget problems could occur.

Anything is possible five years from now. That's immediately after our 2016 championship, so he might want another challenge. :p

Were we in about the same situation now as we were in 1980? Obviously we did face the Olympic team in that season...

F Dude that was the most explosive night of offense I have ever seen at HFH. I was 13 years old and I got Jim Craig, Dave Silk, etc. autograph. Spoke to the late and great Herbie Brooks. The USA team absolutely annihilated RPI that night. Mark Johnson and Co. laid the wood to us. Ralph can probably tell me the score. What an honor to be there that night with my dad. Winning the Gold medal in 80 has to be the greatest moment in College Hockey because of what those guys from Minn., BU, etc. did those magical nights in Lake Placid. If you are jonesing for some hockey, rent or buy Miracle on Ice. I love the Field House because of nights like those. What a great old barn.

Actually I didn't even remember that we played the Olympic team that year. DrD was probably there also.

Allen York is a finalist for the Dryden award (ECAC top goalie).

Jenny and I were there but we cannot recall the fianl score. Just that we got hammered for 60 minutes totally. I have the box score up at our Adirondack house so next trip up will try to look for it. We have no more room here in NJ so we store everything up north.

Good to hear but doubtful he will win after the last few weekends play.

The score was 9-3 USA. I wasn't there. :D

I can't say for sure but that sounds about right. At the time I remember thinking this USA team seemed really out of our league. I did not remember if Craig played in goal for that game though. If I had been smart I probably should have hung around and grabbed a few autographs.:)

Some of my assumption is based on Gwoz's wife being from Michigan and I belive his daughter goes to MSU (I think??). I am assuming that Gwoz is on the move at any rate because he is not feeling the luv at DU. I don't think we will lose SA to Denver though because he would have too much loyalty to Gwoz and not take the job because of the treatment he (Gwoz) has received from DU admin. JMHO. Would like to hear Puck Swami's thoughts on this matter.

I believe his daughter is/was a golfer at MSU. Call me crazy, but if I'm papa, the last thing I want to do is follow my daughter onto the very campus she chose to attend away from home. Kinda defeats the whole spreading the wings thing if mom and dad buy a house down the street from sorority row. If she's already graduated, then its a moot point.

Also, in order for Gwoz to consider leaving DU, MSU would need to be willing to open the checkbook and pay him more than the estimated $200-250k he is currently making at DU...anyone's guess if the the powers in Lansing are willing to do that.

We still have a long way to go. One could almost see the RPI fan showing through in Jayson's post.

$200-250k? Perhaps iIchose the wrong profession? Darn, that's doing a lot of hair transplants for me.

We just cannot expect every night to go like last night. We did get a lot of help though.
