In Topic: Mike Eaves to Coach Devils?

Damn UWHockey, pretty impressive post for a newbie!

I know nothing about him so I'll withhold judgement. Besides it he comes and Lou doesn't like him...


I'll keep you posted if I hear anything and hope that you will do the same.

It's hard for us to know who to cheer for in your series. Dany Heatley and Brian Rafalski both played at Wisconsin. Good luck!

I won't put too much faith into trusting another hockey blogger, but for the sake of learning something, what is Eaves like? What type of system does he like to employ when he coaches? Any certain things that one should know about him?


To be honest, the Badgers are the New Jersey Devils of college hockey. It would be a seemless transition for Coach Eaves. I know Rafalski still makes it back here during the offseason and Eaves has coached (with USA Hockey) or coached against several of the current Devs. I think his boys played with Gionta at BC...

From the Blog...
I think this board has learned to reject the accuracy of hockey blogger's with "a reliable source" :rolleyes:


I certainly don't mean to start anything. The link was provided on the UW message board, so I thought I'd look into it. Here's more on Eaves whose son Patrick plays for the Sens:

Eaves has recruited the #1 player in NA according to central scouting this year. The best forward and best defenseman amongst college recruits are heading to Madison...so we'll be sweating this out all summer..even if it is a rumor!
