The first smart coaching move Lucia has made in years.

Indeed, welcome back Mike. Hopefully some hard work and passion will return to the team this year.

$50 says UMTC will be in a regional in two years or less, I'm going to miss John Hill.

Sadly or happily, I agree with you.

Agreed.

Maybe Hill can join up with a team from the new NCHC and work his magic over there.

So is this a motzko/Dahl situation where he is being brought in as associate head coach now, but will be the coach when Lucia is canned after the year?

Kind of sounds that way, unless they start winning again (quickly) like they should have been all along.

More importantly, who is on Dean Blais' short list of possible replacements at UNO?

I am really struggling to figure out how that is more important. From a Gopher fan's perspective, anyway. :)

Hill is going to only be offered a Junior A position, something like the NAHA!

That was my assumption when this news broke about a month ago.

That was a great night. Get home from a good night at the bars, and then that? Well, you know the one thing that could have made that night better, but it wasn't gonna happen. So I had to settle for that. ;)

This should make the Gophers the favorites to win the last couple of WCHA regular season and playoff titles.
