My son just started a week long camp with Bob Hartley. Mr. Hartley's involvement with the camp is pretty remarkable. He is on the ice every day with the kids. Eats with them at all three meals, does the mini golf tourney, plays dodge ball etc. You would think as an NHL coach running a camp he would make an appearance or two and delegate everything else. But that is definitely not the case. He even hands out his personal cell phone number and tells parents to call him anytime (and no, I am not going to post that!). It is my son's second year at the camp, so I guess I can say I have met with Mr. Hartley quite a bit. Spoke with him on the phone just yesterday.

I am not really a Flames fan, and I am not able to say whether he is a great NHL coach or not, but I can tell you he loves the game and he loves teaching kids the game. It is very genuine when you see him in action.
