    Re: Union College: 2017-2018

    New England Hockey Journal includes Rick Bennett as a dark horse candidate for the Merrimack opening. Could anything be more preposterous? One would hope not. RB has become synonymous with Union hockey.

    How is the ECAC going to do in the NCAA's? Very pleased we got three teams in the NCAA's. Also very pleased that the selection committee played it straight and all of our teams are in separate regionals. Can Cornell get by BU? Cornell has a history of playing well in NCAA playoffs. Can Clarkson take out Providence? Big time matchups between HE and ECAC. Can Princeton keep it going? Good luck to all three teams !!!

    it depends on which team shows up on any given night..
    Is it the early season Clarkson or the one that walked through the rest of the season?
    Same with Princeton - when they show up and use their speed - very tough - when they commit penalties - no so much
    Cornell will be tough for almost anybody because they are big and stay within their system (not pretty but effective)
    the NCAAs are made for Cornell - tighter play and usually closer games

    I agree. I think Cornell has the best shot at the F4. If that happened, might be the only eastern team to make it.

    Re: Union College: 2017-2018

    Hard to figure this year. I am worried that by tomorrow evening the ECAC will be 0-3 this NCAA cycle. Cornell has the toughest #4 seed. If they can get by BU they might end up in the finals but they are so young. Princeton switched on defense and their goals agains went down steadily in their last 12 games. Can they continue to play defense? They don't have the playpoff experience. Clarkson is also young. Can they get the mogo back? Next year will be the year for the ECAC. The show starts tonight at 6:00pm with Clarkson. Good luck knights !!!!

    ECAC is 0-3 and all three of its teams, with up to 1 minute left in the Ohio State contest, had only scored 1 goal. Pretty terrible showing. Next year the ECAC should be much stronger.

    One might have thought Cornell or Clarkson would have advanced, Princeton perhaps not as likely. Still, three teams in the tournament was impressive.
    Speaking of next year, how about this far fetched scenario. Nate Leamon leaves Providence for the Minnesota job. Who is Driscoll’s first call to? Rick Bennett then leaves Union for his alma mater. Kris Mayotte is part of the Minnesota package but is offered the Union job, becoming head coach at his alma mater. Definitely far fetched.
    Finally, Ron Fogarty’s success at Princeton, after his run at DIII Adrian, evokes memories of Bill Tierney’s arrival and what he accomplished with the Princeton lacrosse program. The Tigers are here to stay. The always competitive ECAC will be some dog fight next year, probably with this year’s NCAA gang and Union fighting for the title, not to mention a resurgent Colgate club. Oh yes, Harvard and Yale must figure in the picture. Can’t wait until October!

    Re: Union College: 2017-2018

    Next year the ECAC will be much stronger. I would expect a much better showing in non-conference play. Is there a weak ECAC team that will be rebuilding next year? Brown? Are we losing any goaltenders? A coaching shakeup is too difficult to contemplate. BU is the only one of the 7 eastern teams (HE, ECAC, AHA) still standing. If BU loses there will be no "Eastern Teams" in the F4. This was easily predicted at the early in the season. How does our incoming class look for next year?

    With BU's loss, No eastern team (HE, ECAC, AHA) made it to the F4.

    For 179 minutes of NCAA hockey, the three ECAC teams scored a total of 1 goal. ONE ****ING GOAL !!!! 0-3 was the worse record of any conference. Many teams are coming back largely intact and should be strengthen by incoming classes. Hopefully we willl be hungrier next year.

    Any word on early departures? Probably would have heard by now. What does next years class look like?

    Nice piece on Carr who will be an RFA this summer. He's just the kind of player the Habs need, but if the persistent front office bumbling continues in Montreal, another team will undoubtedly sign him as an undervalued bargain.

    NY Post mentions Bennett - and others - as possibilities for the Rangers opening.

    Unless something comes out of the woodwork at summer camps (unlikely)
    OR the coach gets an offer he can't refuse
    - there won't be any early departures..

    Since they can field a full playing roster without any freshman - baring injury - things look pretty good, but
    there is some talent coming in that will fill in nicely ...

    If they all work this summer - it should be a very good year...

    Not sure the ECAC will be much stronger next year - quite a few early departures across just about every team
    including some of those big body goalies. How they do non conference depends on who they decide to schedule..
    If they are going to attempt a full on run I suspect they will front load the schedule yet again with Serious competition...

    Union picked up a goalie recruit a few days ago, Garrett Nieto of Janesville (NAHL)

    http://nahl.com/news/story.cfm?id=23884

    His brother Gavin plays for Brown.

    Hockey Commitments has Nieto coming this fall, which would give Union 4 goalies....
