Once again I believe Dr. Cobb missed the boat on the UAA hockey coach selection committee. The one person who should be added to the committee is the one person who knows the UAA hockey team, the players, their concerns, the community, the conference, the alumni and hockey in general. And that is Mr. Kurt Heider.
He has shared with all of us on rare occasions the thrill of victory and the weekly agony of defeat. Although he never shares his opinion of how things should be done he has incredible insight into college hockey and the UAA style of play and the players, as well as what it takes to win at Division 1 level in the WCHA.
