Like I said, I think it was time for a new thread after reading the ESPN Boston story on Team Impact.

It's obvious last year on the ice was a disappointment. But I think with some perspective, this is still a talented hockey team with a very high ceiling.

Next year's schedule obviously hasn't been released, but it's going to be very ambitious. The team is opening the year with two at Nebraska-Omaha, which should be on the first weekend of the season in October (the weekend of 10/10 and 10/11). They're supposed to be playing a return game against UMass-Lowell at the JAR from last year; you all will conceivably remember that the Falcons were supposed to play at UML this year and host them on 12/30/12 but it was moved to at UML with the home game at the JAR deferred. I imagine that site should change to Tsongas.

Bentley will also have arguably its biggest game ever in '13-'14. They're going to Agganis to play BU. Date hasn't been announced yet.

Things I would like to see in 13 14

The boys standing in a tight game it always looks awkward when the other team stands while our boys sit.

Why doesn't anyone grow a playoff beard?

Change our teams luck hockey is a game with quirky traditions

My guess is that the UML game next season will be again played at Tsongas, especially if the River Hawks go deep in the NCAAs.

Looking at the Bentley defense last season:

Any word on N/C games aside from UNO and UML? Harvard rematch?

I have no idea how this works in college hockey, but.... in college football, it is very common to move the second game of the home-and-home series back to the dominant program...with a nice payout for the traveling team. Wonder if Bentley would get a check for traveling to Tsongas in lieu of having the game at the JAR.

Soderquist won't allow it.

Bentley is drawing BU next year at Agganis. One of Jack Parker's acts last year was to want Ryan Soderquists team. Jack at the time felt like he was sticking on for one more year.

Ryan Soderquist was also named as a possible suitor for the BU job. But it was obvious BU had Quinn as the guy. Still, it's no secret Jack has a ton of respect for Soderquist and what they've been trying with the Bentley program.

Are you kidding me? I thought it was odd watching other teams standing while our guys sit! You know sometimes change is good! You have to make changes and allowing the team to stand seems pretty simple!

This actually has nothing to do with coaches orders. This has to do more with disjointed nature of the team this season, which we've been discussing. It's not an allowance thing. Some guys stood. Others didn't. Coach has more important things in game to worry about than "hey you guys can't stand up"

Nothing wrong with having your guys sit, get rested between shifts. Umile at UNH only allowed JVR to stand at the end of the bench, given that JVR was one of his few NHL draft picks.

And, the reason that I wanted the tie in our final regular season game was that I thought we would have a better chance against RIT instead of Canisius, which is now up 3-1 over Quinnipiac.

I believe you are wrong on this account it had nothing to do with the disjointed team! Frankly are you sure the team was disjointed? You don't want to rehash last year but the team had a weak defense plain and simple. Offense came to an abrupt stop due to mixing the lines so that they would fail. Grieve Gensler on the 3rd line with the flavor if the day swas the beginning of the end.

Put the players in a place they can succeed, improve the defense, have a better save percentage and get hot at the end of the year. Clearly some teams in the frozen 4 got it right!

Coaches orders are to sit on the bench (altho some don't follow) and no facial hair.

I believe pk specialist as if it were not a directive some players would stand! Watch the game they all sit. Rare to see any stand. On occasion you would see it but it was rare! Facial hair no one has any growth has to be an order! Did you watch any of the frozen 4 a lot of long hair and facial hair!

We're complaining about facial hair now? Must be a really slow month for all of us.

The point is that the coaching staff does create this atmosphere, regardless of how trivial the actual "offenses" are.
