Hopefully he'll do a really good job as coach of the Marlies so we can make a big deal about him being hired elsewhere too.

Love.

Looking back at last years World Juniors tournament thread, there were many of us here, myself included, that we're not happy with the coaching job Spott and company did with the Canadian youngsters. Besides that tournament I know little about the man and the coach. Hopefully that wasn't a good sample of his overall work?

It's tough to coach a team over a 2 week period and be expected to implement any real systems. Skill takes over in that instant.

CW on top of things!!

To be expected.  It's very possible that the "w" in "cw" stands for "weiss."

Probably the people who didn't have doubts as Dallas Eakins as coach.

And those who didn't want him staying in Kitchener (there were more than a few).
