    Re James Miller
    Confirmed returnees include goalie Nolan Hildebrand, defencemen Jonny Tychonick, James Miller, Joe Leahy and Kenny Johnson, and forwards Owen Sillinger, Taylor Ward, Grant Cruikshank, Jared Nash, Cassidy Bowes, Massimo Rizzo, Turner Ripplinger and Matt Gosiewski.

    Defenceman Sam Rossini and forwards Chris Klack, Jamie Armstrong and Ty Amonte could return depending on the university programs they’re committed to. Aside from the graduating 20-year-olds, only defenceman Griffin Mendel (Denver) is definitely heading to university this fall.

    The reality is that 10 D-men on the roster is not going to work. You are not going to defer Maass or Gildon and Darcy has to come this year. Probably disappointing to Miller but he is on a strong junior team and has a shot at a starting spot as a freshman with two spots opening after next season (Marks/Chanter). Hopefully he takes advantage of the situation and ends up better for it. I know deferrals around here (with good reason) are not well received but if everyone is on the same page (Coaches/Miller) then there is not a lot to worry about here.

    There's very much a question mark on whether there would be 10 D-men on the roster, even if Miller is not deferred. Boyd remains a huge question mark, and Nonis remains the sparest of spare parts. If Miller wants to come and compete this Fall, then why not? At worst he burns his frosh year of eligibility ... if he gets caught in a depth issue, and realizes the situation early enough, then maybe he becomes a Knodel or Agosta where he does a virtual red shirt year on campus, practices regularly with the team, and is set to hit the ground running in Fall '18?

    But as you say ... if Miller is willing to wait, and the coaches have prepared him that this might be his best option to play regularly next season, then no one gets hurt, he doesn't decommit, and there is not a lot to worry about.

    Realistically, I'm FAR more worried about the trickle-down impact a 3rd pairing senior captain who struggled to get out of the stands until early in his junior year might have on slowing up the development of more talented and promising youngsters, at least one of whom will be impacted by this latest, most curious of leadership decisions within the UNH program.

    Re: UNH Commits & Recruiting: 2017 and Beyond

    I'm approaching it where I do not see Miller as a sure fire starter this season (debatable, but that's my realistic approach based on how UNH handles playing time). I know there are doubts but Chanter was coming into his own last season with an increased role. I think he is worthy of a spot in the bottom four defensively based on what little I know about the incoming group. I do not fear that his having the "C" is indication that he will be thrust into a top pairing role that he is not prepared for (I will say I would not be surprised to see the coaches try it though See: Gaudreault, Maxim; Smith, Kyle; and MacDonald, Collin).

    I can see the idea of the "virtual redshirt" being a positive as well, but it does not sound like Miller is so far above his competition in the BCHL that he would not benefit from actual playing time in that league. In that case, I would think the full BCHL season worth of playing time would be more beneficial. It's a thin line to walk, UNH has a signed NLI in their hand which plays in their favor. As long as there is an understanding in place that prevents a decommit, I do not see an issue with it.

    And yes, I understand the fact that 10 is not likely the number to start the season. Miller seeming to be staying in the BCHL puts us at 9 and Boyd is a question mark with his constant health issues. Either way, we went from having to play Joe Sacco at defense to having a bit of a logjam with incoming blueliners. If there are too many bodies and one of your players will accept a deferral without decommiting (again, not going to be Maass or Gildon) then why not try it.

    Agree with your summations of the Miller deferral; looking at his most recent stats he will most likely do well with one more jr. season. I don't see this as a MV situation...am giving MS more credit here...

    I wouldn't be surprised either. It's kinda late in the game for the old dog to start learning new tricks.

    When making your back-up goalie an "A" is only the 3rd strangest leadership decision your program has made in the last 5 seasons, that kinda says a lot. I'll let you guys argue the order amongst yourselves, but this one might be the weirdest one yet. At least with MacDonald, some of the time he was missing had to do with a really nasty injury that set him back the better part of a full season. Of course, the flip side of that argument is, if he was such a good leader, why not try to get a medical redshirt for the year he was injured in (frankly forget the timing) OR redshirt him for the following season to keep your/his options open?

    With Chanter, he was in the stands as a coach's decision for two plus seasons. How that becomes your top leader in about 5-6 months of playing mostly on the 3rd pairing after Boyd goes down ...

    And, there you have it, as maybe the players elected Chanter as their captain to make up for Dick sitting him on the pine for those first two seasons. If so, yay team!

    Could be. Not like Dick couldn't override that as the head coach, though. Unless he agrees it's a swell idea too ...
