Dundee CCS Stars Marc LeFebvre is delighted to announce the signing of young British defenceman Josh Grieveson. The 19 year old Harrogate born blueliner who calls Dumfries his offseason home, has iced for Scotland at under 19 level and for Team GB at under 18 and 20 levels.
The mobile blueliner joins the Stars from the Massachusetts based Middlesex Brown Bears (USHS) where he iced for the last two seasons. Josh captained the Brown Bears during the 2015/16 campaign. The New England outfit form part of the United States national junior develop programme.
good signing for dundee thats the kind of signing we should be making
But sadly won't be unless there is a big change in thinking! We can but hope.
Yeah don't see us doing anything different, rumours are around that Todd is stepping down but I think that's more in hope than anything of any real substance.
The semi final showed just how much of a difference having depth and a proper fulltime team makes, we utilise the same guys for powerplay penalty kill and our top lines. Panthers have 4 lines and separate guys they can use for special teams. Obviously they are one of the bigger budget teams but I don't see how we cant compete by at least having the whole team fulltime.
A small example of that, the teams at the playoff weekend were training in Nottingham on Friday (blaze posted their session up on social media) while we were still in Kirkcaldy. It's these little things that make all the difference. In a lot of ways we have improved in others we still work like a part time BNL/Heineken team. No game day skate when away from home, something Casey Haines spoke about 4 season ago.
Mind you we still try and offer young up and coming players £25 a week while clubs around us offer them fulltime roles with the wage to go with it. Penny pinching at its best/worst!
This would suggest there would only be an assistants job on coaching at Coventry at best for Danny if his exit from Fife is correct, hopefully he will be given a chance as Head Coach at FIA next year, the club has stood by Todd pretty well for many years but he keeps on admitting how much he underestimates the league / teams etc not good to even admit that far less do it.............. the fans don't that's for sure.
Emmerson said in his latest interview that he was sitting down with Scott Neil tomorrow Monday. So more than likely Emmo will be announced as Caps coach for next season So I wonder who is still to confirm their Coach for next season By my reckoning Coventry still to declare Weber or AN Other and Flyers So looks like no new coaches other than where is Danny going to pop up?
