Who will coach USA Hockey in 2018 Winter Olympics?
posted by aliciahuang on 8/7/2017 5:47:08 AM | Views: 103
The National Hockey League’s decision not to send players to the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea doesn’t only affect what happens on the ice, but behind the bench.
We’ve already seen Team Canada name a coaching staff without current NHL gigs, including former Vancouver Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins as the team’s new bench boss.
USA Hockey is schedule to announce the head coach for its team on Friday morning, and there’s a bit of mystery to it. Several prime candidates have current NHL or AHL coaching jobs: Peter Laviolette, Don Granato, John Tortorella, Phil Housley,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-travis-konecny-jersey]Authentic Travis Konecny jersey[/url], Jeff Blashill,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-wayne-simmonds-jersey]Authentic Wayne Simmonds jersey[/url], Ken Klee, Curt Fraser,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-claude-giroux-jersey]Authentic Claude Giroux jersey[/url], John Hynes and Doug Weight among them. Former U.S. national team head or assistant coaches like Jack Capuano, Todd Richards,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey]adidas Shayne Gostisbehere jersey[/url], Joe Sacco and Scott Gordon all have gigs in the NHL or AHL as well.
One assumes all of these names are off the table.
The collage ranks also have a few interesting names, but it’s hard to imagine one of them committing the necessary time to the national team in-season. David Quinn (BU), Mike Haviland (Colorado College), Jeff Jackson (Notre Dame), Ted Donato (Harvard), Rand Pecknold (Quinnipiac) and especially Tony Granato (Wisconsin) would all likely be on the radar.
Now, we’re not sure on the status of the college coaches, although one source indicated “I can see players taking a month off, but not a coach.” We reached out to USA Hockey but did not receive a response.
If you’ll recall at the World Cup of Hockey, who of course was hired by the Columbus Blue Jackets a few months later., Team USA wanted to hire a coach who was free and clear of other commitments and could focus intensely on the construction of the roster. That ended up being John Tortorella
We’ll find out if that philosophy still reigns when the coach is announced on Friday. In asking around, here are three names we’ve heard from the slim pickings (thanks again, NHL), including a clear frontrunner. And one name we just tossed in there.
By the time you finish this, a real insider will probably have broken who the coach is. Enjoy!
The conventional wisdom is that Bylsma, is your 2018 Winter Olympics USA Hockey head coach., 46
He was fired after the 2016-17 season with the Buffalo Sabres, and has Olympic experience as the Team USA coach in Sochi 2016., along with the general manager that hired him. He has a Stanley Cup ring with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009
He also has the festering taste of bile in his mouth from that experience,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-travis-konecny-jersey]adidas Travis Konecny jersey[/url], and he wasn’t without blame.,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-wayne-simmonds-jersey]adidas Wayne Simmonds jersey[/url],[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-claude-giroux-jersey]adidas Claude Giroux jersey[/url], as the Americans timidly lost to Canada and then packed it in against bronze medalist Finland to finish fourth in the tournament. It was the worst 24 hours in recent American hockey history
He’s experienced and he’s available. Several sources mentioned his name first in thinking about possible, candidates. It almost seems too obvious.,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey]Authentic Shayne Gostisbehere jersey[/url],[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-jakub-voracek-jersey]adidas Jakub Voracek jersey[/url], or probably
Another former Sabres coach!
Rolston, 50,[url=http://www.flyershockeyshop.com/adidas-jakub-voracek-jersey]Authentic Jakub Voracek jersey[/url], lasting one terrible season (.395 winning percentage!) before being fired. He coached in Buffalo from 2012-14, was most recently the head coach of the Arizona Coyotes’ AHL affiliate, coaching 31 games after Lindy Ruff was fired and 20 games before being fired for Ted Nolan.
He has a wealth of experience with the U.S. National Team Development program, leading the U.S. Under-18 team to three gold medals and a silver medal. And, again, he’s available. One source mentioned Rolston as a possibility.
A total wild card, but one that came up in conversations.
The 40-year coach of the Boston University Terriers hasn’t been behind the bench since 2013 and turned 72 in March. He’s a legend and a U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame inductee this year. Has the game passed him by? Could he handle the rigors of this international tournament? Does he even want that commitment at this point in life?
His name didn’t come up in conversations, but I’m adding it for giggles.
It’s been rumored that Eddie O. wants to coach again. That’s great in theory, but not when you’ve been in the booth and not behind the bench since 2006. So, again in theory, taking a head coaching gig with the U.S. national team and excelling at the Olympics would put his name back in the conversation for NHL jobs.
Could it happen for this 50-year-old former Olympian? And would he take the gig just to get away from Pierre?

Fisher started his NHL career with the Ottawa Senators and most recently was the captain of the Nashville Predators. The Predators went to the Stanley Cup Finals in June, but lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-0 in Game 7.
and I was helped by dozens of individuals along the way, but I know I've made the right one. I've decided to retire from the NHL," Fisher said in his open letter.

Poll: Are the Senators capable of another deep playoff run?
The Ottawa Senators came within one win, one goal of making it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final.
but apparently not to owner Eugene Melnyk,They beat the Boston Bruins in the opening round and then defeated Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers in the second round. Their advancement into the Eastern Conference Final may have been a surprise of the playoffs, who expressed in the middle of February his optimism that the Senators could go on a prolonged postseason run.
Still, it’s likely not many others saw this team pushing the Pittsburgh Penguins to double overtime of Game 7 with a berth in the Stanley Cup Final on the line.
From the Toronto Star:
The Senators scored the fewest goals of the 16 playoff teams and were the only one to own a negative goal differential (minus-4). Opponents fired 211 more shots on goal than Ottawa did at five-on-five and special teams were also below-grade with the Sens tied for the seventh-worst power play and ninth-worst penalty kill.
despite the fact he was dealing with a foot injury that would later require surgery. Craig Anderson posted a .922 save percentage in 19 playoff games, and there were surprise heroes along the way like Jean-Gabriel Pageau,The Senators received a tremendous playoff performance from captain Erik Karlsson, who had a four-goal game against the Rangers in Round Two.
is long over now and attention turns to the upcoming campaign. Getting into the playoffs will depend on many factors, Florida, including those beyond their control, like the improvement of teams like Boston, however,That run, Tampa Bay and Toronto in the Atlantic Division, and other teams in the Metropolitan Division if the Senators are involved in a Wild Card race.
” recently added forward Nate Thompson said last month. “I don’t think this was a Cinderella team,“This team now is ready to win,[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-braden-holtby-jersey]adidas Braden Holtby jersey[/url],[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-t.j.-oshie-jersey]adidas T.

By Kingsley Ighobor and Ernest Harsch
Sierra Leoneans love to eat rice. For them, rice is the food to live on. “It doesn’t matter what other food they eat, they must eat rice at least once a day before they can say they have eaten at all,” explains Umaru Fofana, editor of Politico, a Sierra Leonean newspaper. But now Joseph Sam Sesay, the minister in charge of agriculture, forestry and food security, wants his compatriots to loosen their relationship with rice.

It also says that pre-development studies had indicated that wind farms set up for electricity could pose a major threat to migratory birds.

Natural farming: Going back to the roots
posted by sheonarayan on 11/23/2013 1:36:48 AM | Views: 1255
When you see a huge fruit, your first thoughts, perhaps, would be that they are genetically modified or chemically enhanced. However, this can also be done through 'organic' farming. Propagators of this farming technique prefer calling it zero-budget natural farming, which is largely dependent on things found easily on the farm itself. Such produce would soon be available at local markets.
