¡Hay Wolfkeeper! Tell us a story (about Coach Anderson).
¿Apparently you've seen a handful of Wolfs games, what's the scoop? ¿Is Anderson ready for the NHL? ¿How is he with the players? ¿Calm guy? ¿Yeller/screamer? ¿Does he throw shit? ¿What kinda game should we expect to see? ¿Offensive minded? ¿Defensive minded? Give us the lowdown, yo.

Wolfkeeper apparently has trouble with my Spanish... But look what I found:

Season Team Lge Type GP W L T OTL Pct Result

1995-96 Winston-Salem Mammoths SHL Head Coach 60 30 23 7 0 0.558 Lost in Finals
1996-97 Quad City Mallards CoHL Head Coach 74 51 20 3 0 0.709 Won Championship
1997-98 Chicago Wolves IHL Head Coach 82 55 24 0 3 0.689 Won Championship
1998-99 Chicago Wolves IHL Head Coach 82 49 21 0 12 0.671 Lost in round 3
1999-00 Chicago Wolves IHL Head Coach 82 53 21 0 8 0.695 Won Championship
2000-01 Chicago Wolves IHL Head Coach 82 43 32 0 7 0.567 Lost in Finals
2001-02 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 37 31 7 5 0.537 Won Championship
2002-03 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 43 25 8 4 0.613 Lost in round 2
2003-04 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 42 26 9 3 0.600 Lost in round 2
2004-05 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 49 24 2 5 0.656 Lost in Finals
2005-06 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 36 32 0 12 0.525 Out of Playoffs
2006-07 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 46 25 0 9 0.631 Lost in round 3
2007-08 Chicago Wolves AHL Head Coach 80 53 22 0 5 0.694 Won Championship

12 of 13 years in his coaching career, his teams have made the playoffs. 8 out of those 12 years his his team has been in the playoff, they reached the finals. 5 out of those 8 trips to the finals resulted in a ring. What's to say he wouldn't bring that success here?

He screamed at some kid who didn't speak English last week...I thought most Swedes, especially young ones, spoke English..

Anderson said while describing a drill at the beginning of camp where the player went the wrong direction. "I'm screaming at him. He's looking at me like a deer in the headlights. I felt bad for the kid afterward."

After that, Anderson made it a point to do three things: Diagram as much as possible on a whiteboard, tell Enland to ask questions if he didn't understand something and encourage Enland to get help from his teammates.

More often than not, that help came from Lucenius, who played for the same Finnish team as Enland last season.

Don't be fooled by the name. Jonas Enlund is a Finn with a Swedish moniker.

The roster. But as long as he can get around that, he'll be golden.
