I guess he didn't feel like doing the AHL road trip thing if he wasn't based in a major metro area?

Good for him, I think it's a good selection. Wonder who coaches the Phantoms now?

What happened to Hanrahan, or is he still around? If he got fired we all know what this means.

Maybe Kjell gets the job after being passed up in favor of Berube and then Paddock?

Aren't there multiple Assistant GM's?

Kjell would be an interesting choice.

And no, usually there's just one AGM, as far as I know.

John Paddock is a good man and good coach but a tiny mustache away from being Hitler's twin.

Wasn't he the coach before Paddock?... Or before that? Berube was to get head coaching experience, IIRC, but I'm almost certain the 'Shelly' was in charge at some point.

... I suppose I should search for the answer, huh. LOL

BRB.

Pretty sure he took over when they called up Berube during the season that shall be forgotten...then Berube came back, and then Paddock came in.

FYI:

June 14, 2006 : Craig Berube is named the third head coach in Phantoms history, replacing John Stevens, who was promoted to an assistant coaching position with the Flyers on June 5.

October 22, 2006 : Flyers and Phantoms general manager Bob Clarke steps down from both positions. Assistant general manager Paul Holmgren takes over as interim general manager. Also, John Stevens is named the head coach of the Flyers, replacing Ken Hitchcock.

October 23, 2006 : Kjell Samuelsson is named the fourth head coach in Phantoms history, replacing Craig Berube, who was named an assistant coach with the Flyers. Berube posted a 3-2-1 record in his six games as the head coach of the Phantoms.

October 26, 2006 : Hockey Hall of Famer Joe Mullen is named Phantoms assistant coach. He makes his first appearance on the bench next to his former Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Kjell Samuelsson on November 3 at home against Albany. One night later, Samuelsson and Mullen get their first collective win, against Mullen’s former team, the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins.

June 06, 2007 : The Flyers announce several coaching changes. Craig Berube is returned from the Flyers bench and once again becomes the head coach of the Phantoms. Kjell Samuelsson becomes the Phantoms associate coach. Phantoms Hall of Famer Neil Little is named goaltending coach. Joe Mullen, meanwhile, is tabbed to become an assistant coach for the Flyers.

FWIW:

Americans for the most part hold the stick like a baseball bat -- learning that from their most early years on the ball-field -- the Canadians with the same situation (right handed/left handed) use their dominant hand in a manner that allows them to better control the stick... better 'touch'... which is the exact opposite than a BB bat grasp.

I find that interesting.

Thanks for the heads up... Only God knows where that should have been posted. But I still do find it interesting.

Just a thought here... With the Phantoms now in a remote venue, having an eye on them, rather than Homer's as in the past seasons, make a lot of sense. Paddock can coordinate with Homer and keep him abreast of who deserves and is ready for what.

Now, I suppose you could counter with his doing that as head coach would be fine... As I said, just a thought I thought I'd share.

Let's be real. Paddock is on standby for when Stevens gets fired in December.

After all, he did do so well coaching Emery in the past.
