Is Eidsness still in Grand Forks? If I recall, Goehring wasn't getting paid, he was a volunteer coach (correct? or am I way off?). I would assume that would mean whomever is going to replace him, would have to have other employment in the area.

He's was a volunteer in the NCAA's eyes but he got paid. For Brandt to take over the position he would need to get paid pretty good as he has a nice insurance business in Brainard. I could see it come down to Kollar, Eidsness or Lammy (this could be the job that gets him to retire from playing overseas).

I don't think a volunteer position is getting anyone to retire from their playing career. It has to be a convenience for someone like it was for Goehring who was living in GF and working in another field who had the time and desire to help out the program.

Yeah, probably not, but maybe he's got something he can do back home and then get his foot in the door in the coaching world?

http://undhockey.areavoices.com/?p=107234 I would think it would be kind of weird for Hyrnkiw to step in already and be the goalie coach. 

That's what I was thinking too.  Plus, with a brain like his, wouldn't he be going to work a big fancy job?  He may be staying in GF, but to me, that doesn't seem very likely.

Lammy probably has more than enough money to live off of for a little while, he has a family (young kid probably getting ready to start school), just won his league's championship, what more does he have left in him? I think he would sit down with his family and discuss it if it were brought to his attention. Again, it may be a volunteer position in the eyes of the NCAA but they get paid. He also runs helps run his own hockey school.

He's working at Fusion Automation in Grand Forks right now, he interned there while going to school. From talking to him it sounded like his plan was to get some experience in Grand Forks and eventually move back near his hometown. I suppose he could be a goalie coach as well as work like Karl did.

Stories I heard about this volunteer position is...."it pays pretty good.... from the program (donors)" not a check from UND.....?

I don't know if it is part of the deal with being a volunteer coach but Karl also taught some classes for the College of Business. Sports Finance and maybe Sports Management. 

Karl is a good guy and I am happy for him. When the announcement came out I was super happy he was working for the Lighting. I was a little bummed that it ended up being for their minor team in Syracuse. I guess you have to get your foot in the door.

Loose lips sink ships....   but I always suspected the position at The Hockey Academy had a wink and a nod with it...  but I drink....  a. lot.   so I am probably talking out my arse..   Yeah that's it.  All jibberish here.

He has a 3 year old son and a daughter that was born this winter.

I'm hearing Matt Strinden will be the new UND goalie coach. Former RR JV backup in the 90's. Volunteer coach for RR in late 90's and early 00's.

Doesn't he live in Bismarck?

Ummm. No. Not Eidsness.
 

Yeah, I already was told he's working successfully in Calgary, which I did not know. Thanks for the snide comment, though. Much appreciated :silly:

I'm planning on making one of the away game series this season but can only chose one and it has to be before x-mas break. I've got it narrowed down to the CC series or the Denver series. Obviously the Denver series will be more exciting hockey, so I'm leaning towards that trip. But when it comes down to travel, restaurants and day time activities, which of the two would you recommend? I know there is a direct flight out of Devils Lake to Denver for like $250

I've never been to an away series either but I was thinking the Duluth series would be a good one

They're like an hour and fifteen minutes apart... Pretty much any activities could be done in either location. Obviously Denver is the bigger city and will have more activities. It's like asking the difference between Fargo and Grand Forks.

It depends upon what you would prefer to do in your non-hockey time.  Colorado Springs offers some great outdoor activities that are close in (Garden of the Gods for one), while Denver will offer more metropolitan options.

I realize they're not far apart...thanks for the fantastic feed back. 

Ive never been to either so I wasn't sure if Colorado Springs had a ton of must sees that made the extra miles worth while or not.
