    Bentley University 2017-18: Can I get an "AMEN!" from the congregation?

    FINALLY!!! We will have our long-awaited new arena up and running, hopefully in time for the 2nd half of the season. While that topic rightfully dwarfs all other talking points, a few other things to consider:

    -Schedule?
    -Baseless speculations on future conference affiliation?
    -Recruiting?
    -Predicitions?
    -Who will be the first opponent in the new digs?

    Discuss.

    Many of us are chomping at the bit in anticipation of playing in the new digs next year, just need a little bit of help from the scheduling gods!

    Hurry up Atlantic Hockey, we want a January or February game date. For play-offs would rather have home ice heehee, will live with visiting in 2019 instead haha.

    Amen!

    This link was posted on the Bentley arena construction thread, but it should be posted here also.

    When the time-lapse video went up on Facebook last week, it generated 250+ views in the first 15 minutes. Soon thereafter, was uploaded as YouTube video on Wednesday afternoon, April 26th.

    Unfortunately Bentley isn't very transparent with scheduling and things this early on, but some of us spoke to Soder and he seems to know next years schedule already. He told us "There won't be a set first opponent for the new rink, it will be whoever we're playing the first weekend the rink opens." So hopefully we get lucky and either get a big non-conference opponent or someone like Hurst, HC or RMU who have seemed to be our biggest rivals in the last few years. SHU would also be cool, given the history of the last two seasons. Either way, what a huge moment that will be for this program and I cannot wait to be there for it.

    Once finals are over I'll write a longer post about next season including recruits and returning players. Glad to see this thread getting started early!

    It might be too tough of a proposition to setup a known rival for opening day as schedules need to be finalized shortly and construction can at times be advanced / delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. I would think as soon as can be predictably decided the new rink will be pressed into service, who knows maybe in time for December for a present to the Senior class players!

    So many of us an envious, a great venue and one where we all wish to be there opening night.
