I'd be happy with Harrington, Potter, Fetter, or Rud. However, I think Potter would do the best at recruiting and generate the most press. I could imagine a bunch of metro area girls wanting to play for their hero, even if it's at SCSU rather than UMD or UND. I don't that she'd be able to steal many from the Gophers. Obviously, her semi-celebrity status would get a lot of press initially, but would generate even more metro area press if she started landing recruits and winning games. Imagine if, during her tenure, the Huskies were able to beat the Gophers even once!

The downside is, with any success whatsoever, she'd be a huge risk to leave for UMN, UMD, or USA Hockey if there was an opportunity. Still, it could be good while it lasts.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.
Playing at St. Cloud State has been the best four years of my life.
