Hastings (and probably Mike G) are not going anywhere.
I would agree that Hastings is probably the least likely. I'm kind of puzzled on Guentzel. I'm sure he's looking into it, the possibilities he'd have, etc, and trying to weigh that in over his possibilities at the U.

I think that realistic options as of right now, and the favorites, so to speak, are...

1. Cary Eades
2. Derek Lalonde
3. John Harrington/Tom Ward-Tom is an interesting candidate as he has always had a great relationship with Jutting.

I'd say Eades. You'd be fools not to hire him, given his success/name/etc. I will refrain from UND's rep as a goon squad, as it really has no bearing for what MSUM is looking for.

I agree one hundred percent. He's fiery and has been a part of a huge winning tradition as well. It's really a no brainer, and the fact he has publicly stated he's interested already shows he's committed and ready do be the head coach.

To save the program, they have no other choice then to pay the money. Also is Lalonde considered a "name" guy?

If they don't pay the money, like they should, my bet is the hire Harrington.

Boom.

Agreed.

Although with Eades publicly showing support, he probably cost himself a little money.....

I'm kind of puzzled on Guentzel. I'm sure he's looking into it, the possibilities he'd have, etc, and trying to weigh that in over his possibilities at the U.

If you are honest, the Mankato situation isn't without some sizable risks for a guy in Guentzel's situation. He knows that in his current spot, he is the unquestioned heir apparent for the Gophers. Especially after this recent season. Nobody would blink an eye around here if Guentzel were handed the head coach job at Minnesota this summer. If he leaves, he opens up the door for somebody else to step in and potentially take that top spot because Lucia won't be bringing in a "dog" asst coach like John Hill ever again. He learned his lesson there. Not to mention, if Guentzel did leave it won't help his case as the next Gopher coach if he has anything less than stellar results elsewhere. If he remains in his situation at Minnesota, the team is probably going to contend for trophies most years and he maintains his status.

It was funny when Cardinal noticed that Eades started following Mankato recruit Bryce Gervais on Twitter the day before Eades's name came out in the Mankato paper as a (very vocal) candidate. Kind of tipped the hand a bit because you don't tend to see an asst. coach for a different college team start following the recruit of another college team... I'll be pretty surprised if Eades isn't the guy. He actually appears to really want the gig.

He'll make that up by demanding his contact contain a monthly expense account for mustache combs and mustache wax.

The new coach will be announced in the next few days, and fans "will be impressed," according to MSU President Richard Davenport.

My guess, Chris Burke... the real one this time.

I went to school with a kid named Chris Burke. I'm pretty sure he was dumber than the real one.

I would be surprised at this point if it wasn't Eades. I'm happy to see that both the university and the candidates understand the necessity to update facilities.

When's the last time there was this much talk about Maverick Hockey?

That rules out Eades.

Eades will beat up every fan and reporter at the press conference who isn't impressed.

If this is true, Mike Hastings is the coach.

He's here now on campus having an interview.

Great hire if he's the choice. Well done MSU.
