AS I had recruited many players under Coach MacAdam and personally.knew that it was NOT.necessary but required a sales job about the advantages of a STU education.

And now Coach Ryan is being penalized by current A/D Eagles who has downgraded the second coaching position and lopped.$50,000 from the budget and it is my understanding that Eagles DID NOTHING to defend thmens hockey situation which in deed be is entirely responsible for creating.

I will continue to call for the removal of this man from his position of A/D administrator as he should NEVER have been put in the position in the first place.

The man has neither appropriate background nor training and should be removed ASAP.

TROY RYAN is doing an EXCEPTIONAL job in spite of very trying conditions and I believe that corrective action must be taken after a THOROUGH investigation of"the Eagles Years"

You're getting very repetitive with your arguments, and you're starting to sound like a certain guy from Mt A. Let it go...

The sales job is a very important part of the recruiting business, and always will be, but times have changed and, rather unfortunately, budgets now have a greater place in the operation of hockey teams at all levels. Like it or not, that's where we are at nowadays.

Thanks for the great post STUTOMMIES however I have one thing to add.... Starting next season, the league will impose a roster cap of 21 players, to try and control expenses and make it a more even playing field. Should be interesting to see how teams deal with this, might even stop some players from being recruited (the talented guy who always seems to get hurt...)
