    Re: UAH Hockey 2018-19

    I think that the goaltending situation is the huge question for this team: Sinclair couldn't unseat Uhelski last year despite BCHL numbers (even as an overage player) that indicated that he would likely hold his own at this level. Before you give me the "Cam Talbot was awful his freshman year" speech, Sinclair isn't 6'3" and wasn't putting up .900+ SV% until he moved to the GOJHL. Astorino couldn't crack the lineup, and Theut didn't get in much time at Northeastern. We may have three fantastic guys, but we just don't know.

    I like the progress that I've seen over the last few years, but those first few weeks could be tough. They need an identity by December when they get to that vBG - @Bemidji - @Tech run to finish the conference slate for 2018. If they're somewhere north of 16 points out of a maximum 36 by then, I feel really good about the second half.

    Maybe I'll make a home game this year!
