    My response shows that I may have a little more tact than you might. Iím well aware of the challenge. Iím also well aware of other forces working to offset that Ďchallengeí.
    Itís not just WICE having challenges......

    The Connecticut Whale have signed Elmira grad and 2018 First Team All-American forward Sarah Hughson. They've also re-signed defender Hanna Beattie, who graduated Williams in 2017 and played 12 games for the Whale last season.

    Is it really a professional league if they are signing meaningful numbers of D3 alumni? Do we see a lot of men's D3 players playing professional hockey? And some of the D3 players weren't even that strong as D3 players..... not a great look for the league in my humble opinion...

    Uhh...have you been following some of the names that have been signed by NWHL teams? The Olympians are loading up again on these teams.

    Former SNC goalie Brianna Kelly to join Aurora coaching staff. Makes a ton of sense as she's an Illinois native and former Chicago Mission player.

    In addition to her signing with the Whale, Sam Walther will also serve as an assistant coach at Nichols. She joins two former D1 players (Kaleigh Fratkin of BU and Nicole Renault of Syracuse) as the assistant coaches on Nichols HC Mike O'Grady's staff.

    OíGrady seems to be building a nice base at Nichols. It was only 2 years ago that they were a sad sack outfit. Letís hope he can maintain and grow the program.
