    Why the negativity? Don't you see the potential great publicity this offers the Marksmen team and the potential for great things in the community? It isn't always the highly skilled players that make great coaches anyways. It's good for the league and the Marksmen. Get over yourself.

    Maybe not professional hockey, but definitely not "zero coaching experience"... Ex-Panther Peter Worrell FAU's new hockey coach (2010) "[Former NHL player Peter] Worrell, who has played for the Panthers and the Colorado Avalanche, has coached the team for the last six years." (2014) Former Panthers Enforcer Enjoying Coaching Local Youngsters (2015) "Former Panthers' enforcer Peter Worrell, who coaches the North Broward Prep high school team..." (2017) "The National Junior Prospects Staff is excited to announce Peter Worrell as a Key Note Speaker and Coach for the 2018 National Junior Prospects Elite Prospects Combine" (2018)

    For me anytime you can get a former NHL player (7 years) on your coaching staff in Class A hockey you do it. As for a defined role wasn't he hired like 2 hours ago? It's now up to Coach Kellechy to define the role of an assistant. He has been head coach in youth hockey for the last 10 years or so. Coaching is coaching in my book. One important point- don't get tickets directly behind the Marksmen's bench 'cause at 6'7', 250 lbs he'll be hard to see around. Put me down in the WOW! camp on this hire. This is just one person's opinion - anyone else is welcome to theirs.

    FACT: You have never played in the NHL....or any other professional hockey league most likely. So what makes you know so much about a good coaching hire again??

    FACT: Every coach with professional coaching experience started somewhere with zero professional coaching experience. ADDITIONAL FACT: No matter what happens, there are people who can still find something negative to say.

    Talk about being a butthurt crybaby. The guy played hockey at the highest level in the world! If he woulda played in the SP, he woulda been the best player to ever play in this league. And he’s coming to Fayetteville to be an Asst Coach. That means he’s bringing in valuable experience and he’s trying to learn and get better as a coach. Go away Harlan, you’re embarrassing yourself.

    Eh, no big deal. It just means that the Marksmen might not trade a future goalie of the year for a block of hotel rooms in the Quad Cities because they couldn't afford the road trip if they didn't...

    Two of the most recent head coaches hired in this league has no head coaching job experience of any and was less then a year from their playing career. Dave P. straight out of playing and Bremner was an assistant coach at Ohio, in charge of the defense for less then a full season. If you have been around hockey all your life you seem to figure out what wins you games, no matter if your a good player or not. Just look in the NHL, some of the best coaches never were good or made it far in their hockey career. Just look at Scotty Bowman. Watch the ESPN Miracles of Men about Russian Hockey Innovator Anatoly Tarasov. (spelling maybe wrong)

    I'm not sure this will hurt scheduling wise, may even help out a bit. They will only be playing one game a week and the playing surface can be put over ice, so it could possibly cut down on playoff availability issues, only having to schedule around a two hour football game and the time it takes to put down and remove the astroturf and underlayment. As opposed to a rodeo which requires the ice be removed and tons of dirt trucked in.

    It could be worse. We could have to play Peoria 16 times. Maybe Jesse will have the boys in such great shape that the opponents will be the ones crying over 3 in 3. Edited to add: Just for the record the Marksmen had 3 games in 3 nights 7 times last year so this year is an improvement.
