New coach, time for a new thread.
Love the title of your new thread...wonder if any of his PC recruits will follow him to MC? Hey don't laugh it happens...
I don't understand this hire at all. 50+ candidates I was hoping for somewhat of a new direction. I don't see how this is a step up from dennehy. But will give him his fair chance before I judge. Just seems like an odd hire considering the candidates.
Sigh. They had a chance to swing for the fences, and this feels a bit like a ground out to second. Is Borek REALLY a paradigm shift improvement over Dennehy? Honest, I want to be excited, and the cover page article is really positive, but I'm not feelin' it. Just down right now. Gallant and Gibson, let's see what this looks like in a couple years, because you're both on the hook for this hire.
Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult
Probably you will find he is a great hire.
If it does blow up in their face.. ugh, it would take quite a while for the program to recover..
He's not a home-run hotshot. But he's a solid hockey guy, like Dennehy, but perhaps with a better eye toward the sort of recruits Merrimack would attract, and also is comfortable in getting volume more than high-end, so will really help get Merrimack the depth needed for HE.
Borek is a decent recruiter. Pearl would have been a awesome get for 'Mack (given Dennehy's firing), but everything happens for a reason.
Maybe Borek will be on par with Dennehy, maybe even better.. maybe not. But now that he is hired, get behind him. Give him a chance.
I felt same way with the Madigan hire at first, @ NU.. (being honest here). He could recruit & found some strong support staff as well & got things going. Feel good about things now. Anyway, best to 'Mack, i think you guys will be okay.
