To the common fan on the outside looking in, money is absolutely the area of focus. Are you able to elaborate on the other parts? On the surface, it appears that Boston was struggling competitively until they brought in the new crew this year. If those guys coming in wasn't the biggest advancement Boston made this year, I simply want to know more.

This news has been posted on the staff change thread, but Scott Oliver is out as Brass Caption Head in order to pursue his graduate degree. In my opinion, he was a very good teacher. Can't wait to see who they bring in to replace him.

You have a Brad Toth that was rumored to be moving to a midwest group.  Possibility there.

Is KC Michael out as Program Coordinator? If so, I'm interested to see who they get to replace him.

I thought he did an amazing job in that position!
