    I did actually like the thinking and theory behind Hakstol's ideas, especially with the specific talent pool we were building.

    It's just that the execution of those ideas was very very very very very bad. Having Ghost/Sanheim/Provorov on defense and getting them involved is a good idea. Doing it with feckless point shots fired from the ISS while forwards live along the walls is not the way, though.

    Listened to the nasty knuckles podcast with Laughton.

    Some laughs, but a nice takeaway.

    In their 10 game losing skid with Hak at the helm, it was Jake Voracek who pushed the boys to all go out and basically get wasted, after that 10th loss. Laughton basically credited him as helping to turn that ship around a bit.

    Clearly not. That is eaglesfan036 replying to eaglesfan0366. Completely legitimate, and not at all suspicious.

    He's not a terrible coach, he's just very mediocre. He doesn't seem to be a great motivator which is also part of a coach's job. He's just the epitome of bland and boring and so was the hockey we played under him.

    He was pretty terrible. In large part for the reasons you stated, basically.

    Some funny bits from Kimmo:

    On arriving in Chicago he asked Q if he could get some more systems meetings, and Q basically said not to worry about it they will just throw him out there. During one of his first games Keith yelled at him for not stopping at the net, when Kimmo just laughed and said nobody told him what to do.

    Before their Game 1 against Tampa Bay, Q basically just told them to go out because they knew what to do. No focus on Tampa’s systems or player tendencies. Laughed saying he hoped he would get some instruction, he’s never seen a coach with that kind of confidence.

    Before game 6 against Tampa, Toews came up to him In the morning skate and said he would be the second to lift the cup, that he’s played against him many years and he’s earned it. Kimmo got a bit teary. Couldn’t nap or eat after that. He just felt they had already won it. Had to keep reminding himself “f*** we haven’t even played the game yet”

    One of the easiest players to defend 1 on 1 was Ovechkin. Limited number of moves.

    After game 7 winning against Boston, Snider comes into the room and weepy - hugs Kimmo
    Saying “this is our year”.

    Lot of stuff I left out, but Timonen remains one of my favourite Flyers. He’s quite articulate, funny and a passionate dude.

    Yeah, the first year under AV showed us how much time we wasted under Hakstol and how much more would've been possible.
    Hopefully we'll see that type of hockey again next season. We've wasted enough time.

    More of an outside of the organization / re-tread.

    Also it's not like the UND hockey program is some hack program.

    Oh c'mon now, tell me we can't all spot this from a mile away. Either Risto or Manson to replace Ghost (gone via ED or giveaway trade) in the top 4. Checks off all their boxes. Finally banish softy Ghost, get "tougher", RH shot to play with Provy...

    That M has a better shot at making it in between that pair than Fletcher does at making any meaningful change this summer.

    You can forgive those types of D lapses from Hagg when you realize that he has more offensive potential than Ghost.

    Metz is a bum how can a guy who has never been more than a third rate writer demand such a set?

    I thought we were overpaying for Jones.

    Nah, I have slightly more faith in Fletch than most, and think he's luckily stingy with the assets it would take for Jones.
