    I heard Nate was late to the awards banquet which is pretty nuts...
    That's weird. Why would they want him as a coach?

    Cox has deleted the tweet (got to think Nate got to him or something) but it said Nate interviewed with the Senators.

    Nate has been mentioned as having talks with Sabres also. There's no doubt he's kicking the tires at the pro level ...a la Jim Montgomery.

    Do we grab Rick Bennett if Nate bolts?

    He has not had the success that I was expecting since they won with Leamans recruits.
    I'd be curious to see who applies if our coach heads off to the NHL one day.

    I would expect Ralston or Mayotte to be 1A and 1B

    That would be a shame.

    Why? Mayotte has been the chief recruiter the last few years and Rolston is a former NHL head coach.

    Not too many former NHL coaches out there coming down to college hockey.

    This program is beyond Rolston as it's head coach. He didn't impress me in the pros as a coach and the boy are coming to play for Leaman so Mayotte may be a good recruiter but I doubt they'd be coming to play for him.

    Anyone have any ideas on the schedule. Why is it always a mystery well after other teams seem to have posted their schedule or at least most of it?

    With the schedules released so far of NCHC and (maybe) WCHA as well, I'm thinking OOC is going to consist of Atlantic and ECAC games mostly. Haven't dug through too many of those first-mentioned conferences for open dates PC could fit in.

    Leaman had one NCAA appearance and zero NCAA wins before coming to PC.

    Rolston coached college hockey from 1990-2004 at some big time winning programs including Lake Superior State in the early 90's, BC in the early 2000's, and then USDNTP from 2004-2011 before heading into the AHL/NHL mix. I just feel he has the experience more than Mayotte does.

    The schedule thing has to be Sacred Heart and Holy Cross returning visits while a road game at AIC could happen?

    Union won with Leaman's recruits. Since coming to PC he was won a national championship and been to the Frozen Four twice. Rolston may have extensive experience but I said it was his lack of success that didn't wow me. Mayotte doesn't wow me either. I would be shocked if either of the assistants was the best that PC hockey could get if Leaman jumped to the NHL.

    Thank you for your input on the schedule. I'd like to see better than Sacred Heart, Holy Cross and AIC on the schedule despite AIC's NCAA appearance last year.

    The non-conference schedule will continue to consist of Atlantic Hockey and ECAC as long as the Big Ten refuses to play OOC games on the road, this has been a issue.

    I always hate this argument ... Coach Y won with Coach X's recruits. .... First of all, Coach X didn't win with his recruits. So Coach Y has already done better.

    Second - Bennett was on the staff, meaning he also recruited them.

    Third - Bennett didn't win the NC until Year 3 - meaning he had plenty of his own recruits in there as well.

    Fourth - Union never had a 20-win season until the last two years under Leaman. They have won 20 games each of the last three years, including an NCAA bid, with Bennett as coach and all of his recruits.

    Absolutely right. Leaman expressed this point earlier this season regarding the challenges in scheduling. What the Big Ten does is bad for college hockey.

    Understand PC will also be playing in that big tourney in Minnesota next season - Minnesota, Minn-Duluth, etc.

    Are you referring to the Mariucci Classic or something else?
