Holmstrom got into his first NHL fight, fighting Ottawa's Neil in the first. He's currently a -1 (5 PIM) as the Flyers trail 3-2 after two.

For those who didn't see it: http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/104545I must be stupid. I just don't get the fighting thing. So you either lost control like an ill disciplined kindergardener or you are getting paid to behave like an out of control teen with too much testosterone in something that looks so staged it could be a bad high school play for the neanderthal fans that are watching get their jollies. (OK so it is a run on sentence) What the hell does that have to do with watching skill in a hockey game? This is why I love college hockey.

Question for anyone that might be in the know ... I'm assuming that Green and the staff are still keeping in touch with the current commits to not only keep them informed (as much as possible) with what's going on, but also make them feel a bit better about their commitments?

Of the current possible candidates (according to Scoggins), Who do you think is the front runner for the job? are there others out there that are strong possibilities that are not on the forum radar? if so who? Are there other moves in Hockey East that would provide for other options and openings? (Does Cronin leave for the pro's?) What about Corkum? Does he defect after three seasons in Orono? Does Sean Trembly become a candidate as well (if he is a potential for the PC job, why not Lowell?) Would MacTavish really leave Edmonton? Is Bazin ready to return to D-I? Why would Rolston want to come east when his MI Tech job is open? Just curious as to where the candidate choices are coming from, and who is the right pick to lead the Riverhawks?

I am sorry for all of the questions, but I am new to the forum (following hockey for a long time) and trying to catch up with all that is going on. With no Hockey East teams left playing for this weekend, its a bit quiet with regards to Hockey East, so I thought I would find out as much as I could about what is going on with coaching openings

Holy questions! :)

Sadly, it seems like Scoggins has been wrong on some of his predictions (no comments people!).

I actually think Tremblay would be a good fit, but I haven't heard his name mentioned. MacTavish is out. I haven't heard Corkum's name, but a couple of others you've listed are involved. Also, someone had posted this late last week, but Bennett from Union (http://dailygazette.com/weblogs/schott/2011/apr/01/bennett-appears-to-be-finalist-for-umass-lowell-he/) is also involved. And I'm hearing one or two other names. I don't think they want to wait too much longer, so I feel like this'll be done by month end.

Rolston, heard leading canidate

Bazin
Bennett

Carlson

Maybe flip flop Bazin and Bennett

In that order, zero chance on Tremblay

Final 5-2 Ottawa, tough night for the Flyers. Nice night for Butler and Shannon as they both had a goal and an assist for the Senators. Da Costa only saw 6:47 minutes of ice time while Ben Holmstrom saw 10 minutes for the Flyers.

Cheap shot by Holmstrom (if that was him with the elbow, hard to see the number). No need for that. It was pretty blatant.

Sorry to post so many questions without as much as solid imput on my part, however the only way to educate myself on the situation is to try and find the answers to looming questions, and I cannot be the only one.

I agree Tremblay has done a great job in Manchester, putting most of his kids into D-I spots the past few years. His track record would provide a good opprotunity for a new D-I coach with intensity and dedication.

I think that the release of Rick Bennett as a candidate might be more a self benefiting move, create interest in other jobs to boost PC's interest. I can only think that going back to PC would be his first choice.

I never saw MacTavish as interested in leaving the NHL, maybe someday, but not right now, and I think the learning curve for all of the rules (NCAA compliance and recruiting) is a negative for wanting to move from professional to college ranks.

Why would Roslston want his first choice to be UML when his almamater head job is open currently? unless he would rather come to Lowell.

I dont know much about Brent Brekke (per Scoggins) but Miami has done well and he must be a part of it,

Who else is there? I dont think the list could be that long and if Tremblay were on it, who else is there on the quiet short list...
If they are not looking to wait too much longer, wouldn't a full candidate list have surfaced by now?

I am interested in who will be the next coach as I think it will be a large piece in rebuilding the program. Any other thoughts as to who might be in the running (you mentioned that you are hearing one or two other names? With all the speculation as to who may be candidates, care to add to who they might be?

Right now i see the logical choice as Tremblay... if he is even on the list!

Now thinking more about it, and reading up a bit, I would love to see the Salisbury Native and Triton hockey player in Bob Corkum return to the area to Coach (even coached with Tremblay). I do know that he is a Maine Alum and I dont know what it would take to get him out of Orono, but (http://new.bangordailynews.com/2011/03/31/sports/sirman-corkum-no-longer-on-umaine-hockey-team/) according to this article, he no longer has family ties keeping hiim there.

I was just being wise ... glad you asked the question. We need more Lowell fans on these boards.

I can't tell you much else than I have, because I'm not supposed to ... plain and simple.

I know HokyDad also brought up Carlson, who also wouldn't be a bad choice.

In regards to Rolston, I can't tell you why he'd rather come to Lowell (or even if he would), but he might see the opportunity at Lowell as better than at Tech.

TOTAL BS!!!
You are unreal. You tried this on the PC thread too. So you are saying that you know the candidate's names on BOTH UML and PC short lists AND the order of preferrence for each school???

You talk straight out of your tailpipe....

Bray on donkey. Bray on.

FWIW, he's right on all four. I have no idea on preference, but the names are correct. I know he's missing a couple of other names, but that's about it.

please, I appreciate the support but just put him on your ignore list. Every post from him and his preferrance is based upon who he got along with when he went to school there and got his nursing degree. "this guy was a jerk", "this guy was that"

shocking that most of the athletes who went there couldnt stomach him

I don't doubt the names. We've all heard names associated with PC and UML. It's that he states the order of preferrence like he's an insider who meets with the AD's of both Providence and UML to consult with them. You have to admit that he's pulling it straight out of his arse.
***. The guy is a clown. BTW He wants you to put me on ignore but he hasn't yet and he knows that I think he's the biggest tool on USCHO.

He hasn't been right about anything involved with PC hockey since he began trolling the thread yet still pretends to somehow have an in with the program. Read our thread and you'll see that he gets called out on a regular basis. The guy is a joke.

Good luck to UML on their search. Incidently Hokydud was pushing hard for PC to tab Bennett. Won't happe though. How did that work out for you there dud?

Here's the thing... as far as i can tell, in relation to Lowell, I haven't seen him be wrong or so wrong that I've found reason to ignore him. You have to take any of these things with a grain of salt and with his personality you're forced to take it that way..... interesting to see, lets see if they pan out.

As for the other stuff, yes, he's been incredibly antagonistic... I don't support that kind of behavior. So far though, he's been mildly informative. Trust me, I don't think any of our fanbase is particularly shy about calling out BS if we see it.

I can't call BS on Hoky(sic) because I really don't understand Hoky(sic).
