So what do we know about Muckalt besides the stuff you can figure out from HockeyDB - former Wolverine, two-time national champion, and a few seasons in the NHL? His NAHL team was an expansion club, and it seems he's just getting started as a coach.

I don't know anything, but that he was admired as a player for his passion and leadership on national championship teams, and that both Red and Mel were considering him as an assistant. Everything else is tbd. If anyone has interviews, post links.
But I'd recommend steering clear of unfounded slanders.

I think this is a great match. We have a vintage program and we are rebuilding. Hire the guy already.
Below is a picture from his website. I think it sums up our situation and shows he has experiance.
Gut it to the foundation and build it up right...
:D

Interesting...I guess he's used to losing

Well, ya when he was in Ho-town, but not so much while at Edina or Steven's Point where he transferred when Jamie came in...:p

If Renfrew comes, I assume Dieter Kochan won't be back as volunteer goalie coach, and Damon Whitten will somehow be kicked upstairs for his second year.

If they're paying his (Whitten) salary it would be foolish not to utilize him in some way for the program. He would make a great Director of Hockey Operations- someone to focus on all the off ice activities that need to be addressed; like marketing for example.

I expect he'd remain very much involved with the hockey team. I believe he was in the DHO at State, after all. Based on what Flashy told me a couple days ago, he's already filling that role extremely well. :)

Muckalt spent a year as head coach of the Valencia Flyers Junior 'A' team (Tier III) of the Western States Hockey League before the New Mexico stint. Prior to that he was an assistant coach then head coach of Eastern Michigan University's club hockey team.

Hmmmm...dunno. Maybe Jeff St. Cyr (if you can pull him away from his office in Kirkland Lake) and Russ Becker.

Good leadership with that duo. A winning combo.

I know, right? With my connections in Kirkland Lake maybe I could help bring Jeff St. Cyr back to Michigan Tech. They could probably scare him into it or he'll just give up and give in.

Its all good but I think Mel has his two guys to lead tech to the promise land and i cant wait. Let the new era begin.

Who is going to be Mels first recruit?

Well if that is the case when is Mell going to have a fan club? Mels Misfits, Mels Puppies, or Pearson Puppies. Let the wave begin w/o assistants or recruits.

I'm getting pages of the ignore stuff too.

Meanwhile we have our coaching staff

Pearson. Muckalt. Whitten.

I don't mind Whitten getting hired. Supposedly they used some of his suggestions last year, even though the results weren't there.
Now its time to bring in some recruits.

I'm very tempted to neg rep you for this....

Sorry, I figured the best way to get them reported and subsequently banned is places that's unfriendly to these types.

So your saying Muckalt is the top assistant? If so I'm a little disappointed; Renfrew was much more qualified. Whitten I liked and he represents the program well IMO.
