Ah, awesome to know! :)

They just seemed to check off all the same boxes is all:
1. Coaching their Alma Mater
2. Turning said Alma Mater into a national power (more SCSU than MTU, though they were making great strides after 30 bad years)
3. Their school was the smaller school to the "main" state school
4. They'd had success as Assistant Coaches the bigger school, including a pair of Nattys each

I wasn't actually that nervous, TBH, just saw all the eerie parallels lol

Bob has flat out said he wants to retire here. So we've got that going for us too!

Before Putulny took a head coaching job I was confident we had nothing to worry about now it's a slightly different story. If the job opens up in the next 2 or 3 years Bob will be young enough that he has to be a candidate. Yeah he's family lives in St Cloud, but they could easily move 50 miles or he could just commute. If the Gophers want him chances are they will have the ability to make an offer that's hard to turn down. Putulny might not look like such an attractive head coaching candidate in 2 or 3 years. The GM of the Detroit Red Wings said Chowolski would develop at St Cloud for 3 or 4 years. What people say often means nothing.

On the contrary, I don't think there is any chance the Gophers would ever hire a head coach without some head coaching experience. This is Potulny's opportunity to get that experience. If he has any sort of success over the next few years, much like Mel Pearson, Potulny will have positioned himself as the default choice to replace Lucia.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

Fair point and while I have little to base it off, I expect Potulny will do just fine as a head coach and make him the more clear choice for the Gophers. My main point is Motzko will probably be a candidate, and if Potulny struggles Motzko could easily rise to the top of the list.

That's a huge surprise, I don't know that I've ever seen a guy go straight from the USHL to the pros before (obvs he's gonna play in the ECHL or AHL, but still).

That seems like a pretty big blow to Kato as good Goalies are so insanely important and rare
