Agreed.

He was picked as a coach in the 2011 Double-A Draft.

Gut was an all-time great player turned coach whose relationship with guru Starsi seems similar to that of Chernyshev to Tarasov, the player's coach as official head coach and the intellectual genius designing strategy. In any event, Karel Gut has been successful as coach of the Czechoslovakian team and Rensselaer has four starting Czechoslovakian players and two more on the bench so having this coach makes sense from a team chemistry standpoint as well as from an all-time great honouring perspective.
