Saw on Twitter last week that Matt Eagles will be heading to Memorial University's School of Medicine. Best of luck to him!

Who does Troy have coming back next year? It's been pretty quiet lately.

From the today's Daily Gleaner

Quote:
An evaluation camp will be held Friday to Sunday. The games will be held Dec. 11-21 in Trentino, Italy.

Head coach Gardiner MacDougall of UNB and his assistants, Forbes MacPherson of UPEI and Brad Peddle of St. FX, will select between 35 and 42 players from the eight-team AUS to participate in the camp.

This will be based on their performance during the 2013-12 regular season and playoffs along with recommendation from their head coach.

The camp will begin Friday at 6 p.m. A number of on-ice and off-ice sessions will be held, including three intrasquad feature games, which will be open to the public.

The final intrasquad game goes Sunday at 1:30 p.m.

A further schedule and the list of participating players will be released Thursday.
Jon Groenheyde and Steve Sanza have been invited from the Tommies. They will be utilizing the Olympic ice surface at GHC and the Tommies dressing room facilities.

If the games are held December 11-21 then there shouldn't be many, if any, AUS regular season games affected.

I agree! Blackmore could coach and Murphy could manage. That appears to be his strength.

Not happening. Blackmore won't coach as long as anyone she playyed with is on the roster,,,so, five year waiting period. \just about the same time it takes her to get on the Wall of Fame, I bet

Is that 5 year thing a rule? I don't know the lady but it seems to me that if she was a team leader and had the respect of the room her team mates would welcome her as head coach.

Troy Ryan has resigned as Head Coach of STU. Effective immediately.

I am betting on E. Bissonnette being named the new head coach soon.

Don't be surprised if Troy ends up with a Jr. A in NB (northern).

This is not a huge surprise as it has been well known that Mike Eagles and Troy did not see eye to eye. I just hope that STU has the ability to land a good coach who can continue to bring the program forward.

Just out of nothing to do a few weeks ago, I looked up their PP stats...other than for one or two years, you could have held this interview most years and the same words would be spoken.

I assume Gleaner Guy is already digging up file photos and post "biz"' FOR COACH, on his front lawn. I really liked Ryan... perhaps Murphy for coach GG? He and Eagles have been BF's for how many years now? I hope this does not spell the end of the Tommies.....perhaps back to Chatham.

The loss of coach Ryan to the men's hockey is very.Sad.
We ALL know who orchestrated this event and yet he remains and Troy is gone.
As the host of supporters know there will be.no improvement as long as the current ATHLETIC Director is allowed to continue meddhling in something he knows NOTHING about.

Good Luck.TROY and sorry to see you go.

This is just crazy news. But I don't know why everyone is jumping on the bandwagon to blame Mike for this one. TROY put in his 2 weeks, I don't see anywhere except in people's own imagination where Mike made him quit.

It is very well known that Mike and Troy have not seen eye to eye. Mike has stifled the program for quite sometime first as a coach and now as AD. Troy had vision and candor to make change. Cuts made to the program before the beginning of last season make it hard to recruit and continue to move the program forward. Is Troy to take some of the blame? For sure, however, to try and say Mike has no part in this is pure naivety. Mike tied Troy's hands many of times, thus not giving the program what it needs to genuinely compete and grow.

If it came down to recruiting dollars like I believe it did, thats more STU's fault if anything. Remember, STU just poured a boatload of bucks into the GHC and a fresh set of jerseys. Funding in the school also cuts back dollars to spend on travel and time and energy on getting players to come. But again, Troy was the one kicking players off the team like its junior hockey and playing with 3 lines. And this timing is terrible. As a CIS asst coach myself, if you leave now, right at the start of June, it will cripple the program for a few years

It may well have been recruiting dollars as you say.... The GHC was allocated a lot of money yes, but, if you can't put a quality team on the ice what difference does it make that you sink the money into the GHC. The Jersey's were part of a deal with Reebok. I agree the timing is not right and it will make it hard to move forward. I really think Troy's hands were tied though and to make this decision. As for kicking off players... He made adjustments to the team that he felt were needed. I am sure he wasn't keen on kicking guys off just because he wanted too. He inherited a group that wasn't his and needed his players to buy in and some chose not too. When I was at Dal, some guys bought in to the new philosophy and others didn't. If you choose not to by in you had little chance of keeping your spot. keep in mind that this was when Darrell left the program.

Is STU the next MTA

The timing sucks as this is prime recruiting time

This leads me to believe it's a bit about funding (nothing for travel to visit players, bring players here for a visit, limited AFAs) and a bit personality/philosophy (if you think you need x-y-z to be successful and you only get half of x, a little of y and no z - well then you don't see a chance at being successful so you move on to a program that thinks the way you do.

I don't know if Eric or any new coach will be successful until the school and program show some support or change in the structure of the organization (and I mean really push in that direction - everyone talks about support publicly, because you can't say otherwise - 'Yes, we will field a team, but we don't intend to compete and we have limited financial resources, so we're not looking to improve in the near future' - you can't say that)

This is starting to look a lot like MTA Men's Hockey (and we know what happened there). If STU doesn't turn it around soon, I can't see them wanting to stay in the league (which translates into all teams make the playoffs, top team gets a bye).

Dips on Groenheyde if STU folds

The Leduc releasing was warranted. But still, its embarassing to have a program with 3 healthy lines and 5 defense and Groenhyde having to make 70 saves a night just to keep with close. And also cutting guys like Cheremtiev and Henegan at the end of the season, then you quit without anyone coming in. Program is crippled.

I spoke with Troy in Saskatoon, and while he didn't come right out and say it, I could read that there was friction between him and Mike and also a lack of funding which would hinder the program going forward.
Nothing good can come from this, no matter who comes in to coach, unless the money and the will is there. I don't think either of those things are.....

Darrell didn't actually leave, he was fired. Some of his players ( the Captain, the goalie, the "twins" and a few more ) turned on him at the end of the season.
