So I have been thinking about this for a few weeks now, but does this team (roster wise) remind any of you of the roster we had Norm's first year? link to 2011-12 (http://hockeyeastonline.com/men/uml/roster12.php)... 2014-15 (http://hockeyeastonline.com/men/uml/roster15.php)

The first thing that comes to mind is the number of freshman (11 in 2011, 14 is 2014 :rolleyes:) This came about for different reason obviously, but if you consider the number of players lost (3 unplanned?) it seems like Norm was looking for a similar class.

Looking at the composition (in terms of experience)
2011-12 14 freshman, 5 sophomores, 7 juniors, 3 seniors
2014-15 11 freshman, 9 sophomores, 3 juniors, 4 seniors
An interesting note is we have the same number of freshman D-men as we had in 2011, with the same later stage recruiting (in 2011 that had more to do with de-commits and Norm recruiting "his" guys)

in 2011-12 we lacked a proven goalie (Doug was coming off an injury laden freshman year), same sort of situation now [and some could argue better Boyle has proven more than Doug had]

There are some other noteworthy comparisons, but if anyone is looking for a bright side this season looking at the 2011 roster might help. The biggest missing piece as far as I can see is missing the leadership of guys like Riley Wetmore and Matt Ferreira, but maybe the experience of 3 straight trips to the NCAA's and 2 big wins at the Garden will help to make up for that?

There's really no way for the fans to get excited and involved with this new song after goals.

Lil is making very nasty comments about the fight song. He just said the same thing. That they have killed all the traditions that worked for us. He is his mother's son

We knew they were looking for a fight song for awhile... I wasn't against it... But it was a matter of getting it right

It's fine to have a fight song, there is no need to play it after every goal and completely change the game day experience.

fair enough... I'd be ok with just the end of periods until people really like it... no need to force things... forced traditions=no traditions... anything "traditional" that's been done less than 5 years isn't a tradition

I've already sent an email about this. This is, as a matter of fact, so monumentally stupid that whoever decided to replace Rock and Roll part 2 with this new fight song should be fired. They need to revert back for Friday. Keep the fight song for the end of period or whatever, but they've effectively killed any energy the building builds.

yeah, this isn't an energy song... feels kinda weak.
