WOW! Not surprising given the Hextall/Hakstol connection. I say bring Blais back!

I was unaware that Hextall was the GM in Philly but I agree, I would say that had a lot to do with his name getting thrown in the pool in the first place

Brad Schlossman tweeted that he is being told UND will name Brad Berry head coach at a 1pm conference today.

I honestly think it would benefit the program to bring in someone from outside, with no or very few UND ties, yet someone with hockey clout as to keep the recruitment up…any knowledgeable hockey person will understand the history and tradition of UND/Fighting Sioux hockey after one walk around the Ralph. The recruitment shouldn’t fall off too much if any, and our facilities are still a cut above the rest. Get an X’s and O’s guy in here and put these top tier athletes to the test.

Well, the Hakstol haters will be happy. Not a good enough coach for UND, but good enough for the NHL? Very happy for Dave and his family. He is a great coach. I hope that Brad get's the job. He is a great guy, great recruiter and great hockey mind!

Agreed, I was always and still am a Hakstol supporter. I will be happy with Brad Berry as well. I think the current players will be comfortable with Brad as well.

Brad Berry it is. He said in the press conference that Hak turned down the first two offers from Philly.
