Redeagle & RHm10 - thanks for the names, those guys predate my immersion into the hockey world so don't the local history too far back. According to hockeydb.com, Hamilton played a year i Finlad out of Yale and don't list him as being drafted. For Ullery all it shows is his two years with the NAHL Barons, assume that's when he got hurt.

rhm10 -yes, signed LOI for next season so that is the plan. With their schedule they've lined up it will be interesting.

I didn't know/think Ullery had been drafted, but I do remember watching him at the old Goggin in the midget AAA tournament. He had great coaching as a Squirt, right rhm? :D

Tough to do anything - had he even wanted to - at this point of the summer. With Talbot gone he'll should have chance to compete for playing time.

Actually he's home, been working out/training with Mullin and another kid with Frank Banham (former Cincy Duck, now pro in Eurpoe) pretty much every day...skating some with Mullin, Crane and some other of the better local players...going to Mitch's prospect camp later...periodic workouts with his goalie coach from St. Louis...

Know frank well. Wouldn't say it here but you can let me know on rep where they are skating if you want. Wouldn't mind skating with them. Pretty sure I know when and where because we used to do it a few years back. Eric Miller involved?

Redeagle- You know it, it was that squirt coaching that got us noticed. :D Between you and coach Davidge we had all the tools lol.
He did really well for himself, but again his parents let him leave town and play better competition....Im not bitter or anything.....:rolleyes: He was in the late rounds, real shame he got hurt. He was a fantastic player, Markell offered him a scholarship at Ohio st. but he was looking at the OHL. He was really close with Dan Fritche.

He played on two teams as a squirt. We had a combined travel team with oxford and hamilton. He went to Dayton for Pee Wee's then in Bantam's we played in cincy for a year then with cleveland during the summer. He moved up to cleveland full time second year bantams.

I assume you played with him on the Hamilton team in the GCYHL.

Hey Miami guys, quick question (not a flame). Has anyone here seen the Frozen Four film that just came out? If so, how do you think Enrico Blasi came across in the video? Just curious.

I think I'll go watch Twilight: Eclipse before I subject myself to reliving that weekend again ;) .

But I'm guessing he was rather sort and not overly enthusiastic in the interviews.

But I'm guessing he was rather sort and not overly enthusiastic in the interviews.

No offense but he looked like a buffoon on this DVD. For whatever reason (Burke story, overall #1 seed, last year's heartbreak, etc.), Miami was heavily followed by the cameras (or perhaps just one camera was used, which would explain things). A lot of the locker room talk from Blasi was on this DVD, much more than the other teams.

His pregame speech was half of THE Herb speech with excerpts like "this is our time" and "go out there and take it." TERRIBLE! But that wasn't the best part. He even let loose a smirk and chuckle while proclaiming that "We're the best team and everyone in this room knows it... everyone on this coaching staff knows it... and everyone in this building knows it." That pep talk also included a bizarre quote: "This building is ours, we established that the other day."

It was simply a matter of putting on the uniform and showing up to get to the title game. Even after losing to BC for God knows how many times in a row he didn't seem to think it was going to be a problem.

In the 1st intermission, trailing 1-0 he still was quite confident... "They can't skate with us" he said, not once but twice.

In the 2nd intermission, he realizes he is in deep crap and just drills the team. "Where is the pride level?" "This is embarrassing. This is embarrassing. The #1 team in the country?!" They were only losing 3-1. Not a confidence booster when they needed some positive talk.

Postgame press conference he started off quite rough when asked for his general thoughts although he eventually calmed down to congratulate BC.

Honestly, every time he talked on Thursday to the team it was a disaster and the opposite of what he should have been saying IMO. Pretty crazy stuff, definitely didn't make him look too good.

The guy has taken a total dog of a program and put them in the situation to be followed around with cameras in the first place. Obviously everyone is entitled to their opinion, not getting in a flame war over it.

Looks like only people who care are you guys....:rolleyes:

amen.

kind of pointless debate/arguement and makes zero sense to why anyone would try and engage in it. Guess he isn't allowed to be overconfident, only the boston schools are.

Oh and cute jab with the " loss to BC for who knows how many times in a row " .....lol very original, someone lives in the past.

I also saw the DVD. Here's the thing, given that BC raped Miami and Wisconsin, BC fans are probably the only ones that will buy the DVD. Damage would be minimal unless someone put that up on youtube.

I'm not here to flame, either, but good God did Blasi look like a twit.


Guess he isn't allowed to be overconfident, only the boston schools are.

Well, again, knowing that Boston College has owned them like a monkey, it is quite strange to be that confident (especially considering that Miami didn't even belong there given that Michigan kind of ... ya know... scored in overtime). Stupid is as stupid does, I suppose.

And obviously, the Boston schools would be confident when they are playing Miami. Although to be fair to York, his teams are usually NEVER overconfident and don't seem to take too much for granted given their track record in March and April.

Personally, I'd have told these guys they were in for the battle of their lives and would need to take it up a few notches since they were playing the best program in the last decade with the best coach in all of college hockey. Not something to the effect that 'I'll see you guys in 60 minutes and we'll talk about how we're going to beat Wisconsin then.' I mean seriously.

They had thrown in the towel after the 2nd. That much was obvious and Blasi threw it in with them with his tirade after the 2nd. Don't think that is the way to motivate the kids. Down 1 after 1 he was confident they would win. Down 2 after 2 he packed up and went home? Weird.

How many in a row to BC now? 4?

It's easy to make fun of people for living in the past when their program has accomplished something and yours hasn't. Given that BC will be favored to win it all again in 2011 and have a great future ahead of them with York looking to stay several more seasons, I'd say BC fans are living in the past, present and future.

Have a great 4th of July, everyone.

Hahaha probably would of...but would of been the same ole song and dance. We lost, they won. Its summer, Not dwelling on what happened last year and looking towards this. But this is what you come to expect from "Boston" fan, you accept it wash your hands of it and move on lol. We will get them at some point in a big game, but when that happens they will throw the others in our face even though they tell us to win the big one.

Never going to win with people who don't get it.

Have a good holiday '628.

Are you saying that "Mr. Bean" embarrassed himself? What a surprise. I think he's a good coach, but if what you're saying is true, he seems quite arrogant for someone who can't win the big one.

as a fan of your team as long as it's not playing mine I must agree that it wasn't Rico's shining moment and I'd bet if he had to do it all over again (especially if he watched the tape) he'd have played it differently. I am not one to get into a flame war especially since I'm a fan of your team but it was actually uncomfortable to watch. I had only heard great things about him but when I saw this I was stunned. He has without a doubt done great things for MU and certainly deserves your full support but this time, well, he messed up, no question about it........in between the second and third period in the locker room was brutal and the team just quit after it, that can't be denied. In any event best of luck to you guys and look forward to seeing MU take it all sooner than later......

Its all good people pile on after a bad loss. If people only saw half the things that went on in lockerooms around the country.... Just because he was on film and its for everyone to see they jump on the guy. Majority of people take an isolated mole hill and make it a mountain. This is a non issue, but if some want to get their panties in a bunch go for it. I for one won't because I know him personally and this film doesn't portray him accurately. So what he got passionate and tried to inspire his team....blah blah blah. Over it, people need to move on and leave our thread with this garbage. Go start your own thread and bash him if you want. But that would just be even more pathetic.

i hardly call this bashing him at all or piling on , just my honest opinion of what i saw and if it were York doing it i'd feel the same way, stunned...........also, if you call my post garbage, well, you are entitled to your opinion of course....perhaps you ought to grow another layer of skin as the one you have is pretty thin .......... and remember i spoke as a fan of your team and of your coach.....i'll go unravel my panties now:rolleyes:
