    I think Lumsden is the best choice, with Posey-Audette coming in 2nd. Lumsden has been an AD so he knows the big picture and should be an expert at all the moving parts of a program, and he would...

    Good attendance is a major part, but being in QC helps a lot there. It's the only major city with not a single pro sports team, and (in my opinion) holds a cultural significance that no other city in...

    They won their first Vanier before he took over as HC, right? Or do you mean he was so instrumental in the program even before taking over?

    Also, did Laval ever have a limited budget? Limited in...

    That's a big pipeline to take advantage of, if Mac can't get it back from Guelph it will pay major dividends in recruiting.
