When Romeo left, Gendron tried to bring in Mundinger and Johnson. Johnson never showed up as he had eligibility issues.
Red was here a lot longer than I thought.Gendron has been with the team since 1990. Until 2013, he was an assistant coach under former head coaches Shawn Walsh and Tim Whitehead. Gendron has a record of 49-71-17 in his five seasons as a head coach.
He's been outstanding at OSU, though. Makes me wonder yet again if Red has any idea whatsoever as to how to handle his personnel.
I doubt I'll survive the 3 years of almost-certain futility ahead of us, but that probably will work for most of you.
Lol. Everyone that knows me that's ****ing funny!

Maine Hockey Love it or Leave it
But, ya know, all this whistling-past-the-graveyard mystifies me, especially as it's been embodied in Maine's wrong-headed extension of Red.
I do realize that people want to avoid another so-called "re-build", but the fact of the matter is that every single year of Red's tenure has looked exactly like a rebuild to me, if not -more accurately- a regression as often as not... As someone said earlier on this thread, without Sway, Maine might have won only 10 games this year.
I really can't believe that our program could be in meaningfully worse shape right now if Maine had decided on a quality new hire. I certainly wouldn't have foreseen mass defections, because it isn't as though Maine is stocked with blue-chippers who have a roster-spots waiting for them with baited breath at a Denver or a Minnesota or even a (fill-in the blank low-echelon team).
On the bright side, Red's extension will likely save me some serious travel-bucks.

My guess is without defections offense is better. Given there are two big recriuts on offense. And Swayman is as good or better. And we have a solid defensive d man coming in.
But I wish now, with the extension, team defense gets better. Be nice to hear defense is working on getter better, specifically protecting the net front. And that centermen back check through the ice, and that wings pin puck low. And that the defense work at protecting net front and play body.
We shall see.
I think Maine will get better. But the big difference maker are the defensemen, in my opinion.
Looks like baseball isn't great this year. But at least women's bball was great. And women's hockey got much better.
