making him a #3 or 4 coach is okay I guess...why not bring trent cull on as an assistant as he has coached some of our young players and give BUMMY the HC job in Abbotsford??

I am hoping he stays with the Abby team for at least this year.

Which is objectively great news. 

Agreed. He clearly did a great job with the defense in both St. Louis and Columbus.

Can't see Shaw answering to him. I think, based on experience, Shaw is the coach that'll run the defense, and Baummy G will be relegated to assisting him, or wiping down the whiteboard after practices.

That's what an understudy often does.  ;)

Point being that I wasn't intimating that Baumgartner would be overseeing Shaw or Shaw answering to Baumgartner.  As an understudy (if he is), Baumgartner would be learning Shaw's moves and philosophy in case he needs to step in to cover for him.

 

I have my wife to thank for learning that term; she explained to me what it was from a ballet context.  :bigblush:

With Clark locked in for 5 years and Demko for 5 years, I think Wallstedt would be the perfect player to pick at #9OA.  Allows the flexibility to move Dipietro to acquire help in other areas.

My thought exactly, they just hired Shaw, a well regarded defensive coach who has worked his magic for two different franchises, I suspect Shaw will be the D coach going forward, and Baum will coach special teams, or something else.  I also suspect that Baum is back because he got a thumbs up from the players, which is what appears to have saved Green's job.

And Green has a long history with him in Utica, I believe.

brown gone: good

baumer back: bad

****ty video coach back: bad

 

brown gone tho.....

Yeah Brown gone is definitely a positive and I like the addition of Shaw, especially if he takes over the Defense from Baumer. Will be curious to see who gets what assignment...

5-years for Ian Clark, matches term of Demko's deal:

 

I've always thought of goalie coaches as independent of the rest of the coaching staff.  They are part technical expert helping the goalies work out their mechanics, and part psychologist because everybody knows that goalies are crazy!  They don't really have a ton of input into the team's systems, so it doesn't matter who the HC and his assistants are, the goalie coach basically stays in his lane.

Originally selected 86th overall in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings, Shaw recorded 159 points (22-137-159), including 94 on the power play, in 377 career games with the Hartford Whalers, Ottawa Senators, Washington Capitals, and St. Louis Blues.

Based on this section from the team press release, I’m wondering if Shaw will actually be handling the power play?

 

Just given the fact that chose to include his power play scoring stats, from when he played.

 

Maybe reading too much into things, but seems odd they’d included those specific numbers, without some intent behind it.

 

I’m just glad Shaw is here, whatever his official role ends up being. He’s going to make the defence better. And that fact he’s had so much success coaching PK probably gives him pretty good insights into how things work on the opposite side of special teams.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Baum is good in the room and the organization has loyalty. But they just brought in better people to do his current job. He will be shuffled to something else which is a-ok with me. Glad to see a change with Brown being gonzo, even though I think his "incompetence" was grossly exaggerated. Time for a fresh take.

I know most will say, we have Demko, we have DiPietro, but I agree with you. Any opportunity to get a top 10 ranked goalie is a good one. Stack goalies like they stack pads.

yup this is good news for sure. 

 

As far s the PP goes, I suppose we could be looking at King? I mean he did have that huge season with the Hamburg Freezers.
