Tell me more about your sentiments vis a vis Foligno.........

I admit upfront that I'm baised as Foligno was one of my hero's as a player. Got the chance to meet him when he was an Asst for the Avs. Maybe it was the talent on the team but everyone felt he was a quality asst. here. Believe he did a respectable job with Hersey when he did a tour there.

Also had the opportunity to interact with son Nick during youth tryouts and stuff when he was a peewee. Saw a lot of the old man in the kid. Really liked his intensity and skill level. Marcus was behind Nick but believe he's the better player.

I would agree that having a Dad around mgmt/coachng wise with a kid on the team is not a good idea however. Lacroix tried that with his kid and it was bad for the dressing room.
