UMaine’s snub of Montgomery did championship hockey coach a huge favor

... “Just think where the program would be if Montgomery had gotten the job. Look what he’s done at Denver,” they have reasoned.

I don’t buy that argument. Here’s why …

It is a matter of record that UMaine wasn’t interested in Montgomery. UMaine didn’t ever approach him about the job.

Apparently, a driving while intoxicated conviction — seven years earlier — had erased any chance he might have of being seriously considered.

It was the most important job interview Montgomery never received. Given a chance, he might have impressed the search committee and convinced them that he was the right man for the job.

Instead, it was Denver that embraced Montgomery’s potential and hired him on April 15, 2013.

I generally like what Petey writes, but this one is pretty close to an incoherent, all-over-the-place, "they, he, she feel ..." speculation and opinion piece (vs. journalism reporting), without much supporting and corroborating sources, or at best any such sources and firm corroboration are only alluded to. Lousy journalism and writing in this one. IMNSHO.

How Nice IF it had just been all about CONGRATULATIONS to former UMaine Black Bear Jim Montgomery on his Denver Pioneers team winning the Nat'l Championship. Just start and end there !! :( :( :( :cry: :cry: :cry:
