I like Eric Means, but count me as an official supporter of Joakim Flygh. In addition to having experience in the women's game, he serves as an assistant at Harvard, one of the better women's programs in the country. He's the team's recruiting coordinator, in addition, he is in charge of monitoring the team's academics — no doubt a difficult job at a school like Harvard.

He also has WCHA experience as a former assistant at Minnesota Duluth and as a native of Sweden, may be able to tap into that country's elite talent reservoir.
