Princeton hired Ron Fogarty of Adrian as its Head Coach, which means that Joe Dumais will be back, at least for now. Joe will get his team one day, in the meantime I am awfully happy to have him back.

Question for you season ticket holders ..... how are the box seats? I have heard they are moulded plastic and can be uncomfotable unless your body is the reference design they made the seats for. Do you have to get a box seat if you are a season ticket holder? They sound like they are better than the benches but by how much?

We've had season tickets since about 1993. I also think the molded seats are uncomfortable - we've only sat in them a couple of times. We sit in the bleachers in Section 3. Great view of the whole ice. We've had the same seats since we started. They give you an opportunity to change your seats when you renew, but we never do.

I have had my season tickets for several years in the top row of the bleachers on the west side. The sight lines are excellent and there is the added advantage of a railing behind you to lean against.

No, you do not have to get a box seat if you are a season ticket holder. I sit right behind the bench in a small section, which is prefect for me because the view is fantastic, it's closer to the ice than the box seats, easy to win the chuck-a-puck :D, and you know everybody in the section for the most part.

Interesting Interview with Princetons New Head Coach ....
Fogarty Excited to Take Helm of PU Men's Hockey, Vows to Instill Trust, Enthusiasm, in Rebuilding ...

In the past few years, Princeton has turned around football and mens' wrestling with new coaches. I sensed last year that Princeton's record 6-26, was not indicative of the hockey talent that Princeton had. The ECAC is going to become a little more competitive. I hope Princeton does better in non-conference play than they did last year, 0-5 NC non-ECAC.

Fogarty's success at Adrian reminds one of Ned Harkness' stint at Union, where, right out of the box, he crafted an amazing record. Thereafter, as we know, there is no resemblance to the new Princeton coach.
If the Princeton lacrosse success under Bill Tierney is any kind of a template, the Princeton faithful have much to look forward to under this very impressive guy. On paper he looks like a "can't miss."

I have not done the analysis but my sense is that there is a lot more ECAC vs HE non-conference matchups scheduled for 2014-2015 then in the past. The ECAC finished pairwise with 5 in the top 21 and matched HE in interconference wins so the leagues are somewhat evenly matched as of late. It seems like a good thing for both leagues. Am I right on this? As a Boston fan its great to see us in Cambridge (Harvard) each year but would be spectacular if we could also show up at BU and BC and NE.

Speaking just for Clarkson, no - we had 7 last year (vs. UNH in the Ice Breaker, 2 vs. Merrimack @ home, @ Vermont in their tourney, 3 vs. Lowell (1 in Vermont, 2 @ Lowell). 4 this year (home & home w/ Vermont, 2 @ Merrimack).

Of course, we were 1-5-1 in those 7 if I remember right, so not a bad thing for the league :o

Considering HE has gone from 7 NC to 14 and now 12 NC games, they're needing to fill them somehow. Although there is a bit of an agreement between HEA and B1G in place.
