Yeah, that's about as long of a thread title as the forum allows, unfortunately. I was just trying to get things rolling, but if someone wants to think of a more to the point thread title I wouldn't be offended;)

More schedule news: Quinnipiac is most likely dropping the game they had planned to play against UConn. That would mean the Q would have two games left, and an interest in playing a HEA team which Maine might be able to capitalize upon. They would make a much better opponent than an AHA team like Canisius.

However, I have noticed that the state flagship schools (except New Hampshire) have between 6-10 games remaining. Even if both Ohio State and Penn State step up and fill the schedules, it remains possible for Maine, Vermont, UConn and UMass to play non-conference games against each other. Hopefully that will not happen, though I am not sure how much worse it would be to play two games against one of those schools versus playing a pair against an AHA club...

just saw on twitter that Providence's Drew Brown has been diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma a rare bone cancer... cancer was detected during an MRI after he was injured against UNH in the HE Semis

That s u cks. Dealing with the big C with my mother right now. With the technology and the billions invested in research you'd think we'd be closer to a cure. They have expanded life expectancy greatly...thank God or my mother would be gone by now but d a mn what an evil disease. Seen so many people young and old succumb to it. Let's all pray for a cure in our lifetime.

So there goes most likely a game or games this year v Quinnipiac.

Based on this:

02/14/15 @Merrimack*
02/27/15 @Providence*
02/27/15 @Providence*

What this means: Maine will play two non-conference games @UMass Jan 10+11. Maine will host UMass for the league contests, probably 10/31-11/1.
The Lowell and UConn contests will remain split - 1 home, 1 road - each season.
It looks like the reverse-engineered Hockey East schedule was pretty accurate, except for the BU/BC games in Boston.
32 games are now scheduled. Four games remain.
It looks like Maine will play 19 home games - all four remaining games. That means if Maine is going to get a B1G opponent, it will likely be Penn State as Michigan State already makes two trips to New England.

Correct. UAA is coming to Orono for a pair this season, not next.
