Lost to Bentley today. Lost a recruit last week, Wahlstrom thinking of heading back to USHL or OHL.
York old and tired, daddy coach on bench. Not the recipe for success.
Bottom line, AOC is not ready to be a head coach and JY needs to prob retire. Other HE schools are doing a great job. AOC has changed lines every single game that I have watched and looking at the line chart. Went to both BU/BC games this past weekend and all the freshman that played belonged on the ice. You people can sit at your computers and be as jealous as you want, its a long 4 years and I am sure they all will be just fine. OW may move on, but that's his choice, the kid kid is still a 1st round pick and hell of a player. Look at Prov, they also have a 1st rounder with 1 point. There have been plenty of great pros that did not have great freshman years, its a big transition. IMO BU will probably struggle more as AOC is over his heard and PP will probably get more involved as he has more experience. Everyone is allowed to have growing pains.
The mighty have fallen. Hockey East (at one time arguably the best conference in college hockey) has seen better days. They have 7 teams in bottom 20. Two of those teams are bottom 10 with Merrimack being the worst. Hearing Merrimack will drop to Div. 3 in 19/20 where they belong. Need strong program to replace them.
Merrimack can't drop to D3 at this point. They are a D2 school so hockey can either play up at D1 or struggle like the handful of remaining D2 programs.
just looked up merrimack OUCH. will be interesting to see what happens with them.
Hey, we beat both BU and BC this year, that's a huge accomplishment. Also, the new coach will do a great job with this group of young men. I am personally excited to see where the program goes.
Will do a great job? Is losing 9-1 to Northeastern convincing you of that? Would be doing lot better under previous coach but he's coaching pro now.
With Borek there now they are not going anywhere for the time being...They are going to give him time to recruit and build the program up....if not then they should move to another conference...
We will be fine, just watch. Borek will do a great job, may take a couple years. HE is changing, BC and BU are not the places to go anymore. There are better coaches at other schools. Lowell best BU last night, that just shows that a coach can win over talent. Norm can out coach many of the guys out there. Albie May or may not figure out how to be a head coach. UNH will be a team in the future as well, Souza is a great coach. Just look where Umass was before, now look at them, #1 in the country before loss last night.
