    Thank God. I hope he coaches the team as well as he did with the 2010 squad.

    I didn't like Keith Allain.

    No they won't. Both are in the same pool and it could go down like 2010. Rocco Grimaldi to the rescue :naughty:.

    Really don't understand why he didn't get the job this year but glad he is back.

    He was offered and declined. He took the Team USA job in 2009-2010 when it was also his first year as the Nebraska-Omaha head coach. Blais wanted to solely dedicate a full year to that program, especially since this year was the year they joined the WCHA.

    The same Canada that choked away the tournament last year? Darn Canadians and they're silly belief that winning every tournament is their god-given right.

    Thank God Blais is back. Our boys played with passion and confidence under him, something they didn't do this past January.
