Assistant coach rumour

I have heard over the last couple of days that Mark Johnston (former assistant coach in Wheat King Land) will be named Pats assistant coach. Rod Pedersen has verified the rumour and I look forward to seeing what he brings to the table.

Wait a minute... shouldn't a team already have a Head Coach in line if they already plan on hiring an assistant? I'm guessing that there is more to this story than meets the eye. Has Hunt agreed to come back to the Pats? Has Michael Dyck contacted Parker? Has he ok'd having Johnston as an assistant? I wish I had some answers... but speculation is good for the soul. Isn't it? I know onw person wh has answers... That's Brent Parker. I really hope we find out who the next coach is soon.

*Edit: I couldn't remember when Johnston was an assistant so I checked hockeydb.com to check and I was surprised to see that he assisted in Brandon so long... 1990-2001. Six 40 win seasons (one 39 win season).... he's got experience.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
