I get the impression that the Niagara Ice Dogs are simply not a high-profile franchise. Nepotism doesn't help. It would not surprise me to learn that OHL coaches looking for work aren't exactly beating down the doors to work for the Burkes. It's not that I disagreed with the firing of Marty Williamson, I was very much in favour of it. What I didn't like was how the Burkes went about creating what must have been a really uncomfortable situation installing their son as Assistant Coach. Rightly or wrongly, that sends a very bad vibe across the OHL as far as how things work here. How do you all think it was perceived across the league when the Dogs fired a high-profile, hand-picked coach with multiple years left on his very expensive contract?
On the other hand, perhaps the Burkes are just waiting to be out from under Marty's contract, and the Burke Boys are just filling in, and gaining some experience..

London Knights have Dylan Hunter; don't be surprised if a Hatcher appears in Sarnia, or a Rychel in Windsor. It's the way business works.

Are their any rumours floating around about possible candidates?

Other than a family member.

That's it exactly, 1290. At this rate, what happens first: a championship or a 20th anniversary patch on the Dogs' sweaters?

Is anyone else curious as to why we have heard absolutely nothing from the Ice Dogs organization about what their intentions are with respect to filling Dave Bell's position. Usually there would be a rumour or a leak about what the team is doing to get prepared for the upcoming training camp/new season however it would seem that no-one has found out anything and we are all still speculating and in the dark. Has there been any chatter on any of the other websites? It would be nice for the fans to have some idea what direction the team is following for next season.

Likely because they are still in negotiations with interested and available candidates. As for the "other" sources, there is nothing solid, just speculation that Nystrom is heading our way from Brock and Williamson may take his spot.

I saw the Marty going to Brock speculation but didn't see anything about Nystrom coming here. I wouldn't be at all surprised if fans aren't hearing anything because the next guy is already in house and they are looking for another assistant coach

Even if that was the case, surely we would have heard something about that decision. I am really surprised that this amount of time has passed since David Bell accepted his new job and we have not heard a peep about what might be happening with the Ice Dogs.

With all due respect, why would we hear anything from the Ice Dogs organisation until this agenda is finalized one way or another.
If I were the GM, I would not want any negotiations going public and maybe making them harder to finalize.
Just my thoughts here though.

I am also surprised that the name of Ted Nolan has not re-appeared on this site until now. I believe that his remaining contract with Buffalo may have come to an end or, he might have one year left being that he signed and extension with Buffalo.

Time will tell...
