Well, the Huskies sports scene is dominated currently by the little matter of beating Florida for the second time this year -- this time in the Final Four -- and whether or not the UConn Women can again hold serve tonight and possibly next weekend.
But let's talk college hockey instead. Can we get some predictions for a RS finish next year by the Huskies?
I'll start it off and invite the wrath, ridicule, and flames of established HE observers and predict 10th. As soon as the HE cognoscenti read this, I am sure that the laughs will be heard from Orono to South Bend. Yes, with league points there for the taking, the Huskies will no longer be seeing any back-up goaltenders and fifth lines. The opposition will be playing for real. But let's see what happens.
And I'm excited to see Maine play closer to me more often (assuming they get their act together on the road).
Me: ...but why would anyone want to vacation here? There are better mountains in NH and VT, beaches in Cape Cod and RI, and colonial landmarks in Mass and CT.
Boss: You've got it all wrong. It's Vacationland because nobody would ever want to live here for more than a week.
Go MAINE! My sometimes home
That always goes well.
I always assumed that when HE went to 12 teams, they'd have travel partners like the ECAC. That's probably not the case since nothing is near South Bend, Burlington or Orono.
"I have come up with a plan so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a weasel. ."
"I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. "
"They could maybe hire another officer to catch the illegal immigrant drug dealers breast feeding at Dunkin' Donuts or whatever it is! Thank you!"
I don't think we're gonna fit in too well in HE. We don't really trash talk about other teams. We have a tendency to wring our hands about our own team's lack of consistency and get overly excited when the Huskies upset someone. When the latter happens, we immediately raise the bar and demand that it happen every time. I am probably one of the worst in that regard.
10th will be a successful season for UConn...I was impressed with your squad in the PC game as the kids played hard and took advantage of the chances they got!
Any more rink news?

Was wondering more about a new on campus facility.

Welcome to HE Huskies! Looking forward to seeing the UConn v UNH matchups...anyone know the schedule yet for next year for this? See ya at the Lake 'Whitt!

what went wrong with the huskies down the stretch this year?
Welcome to Hockey East guys! I have a feeling that you guys will be one of the sleeper teams that will sneak up and pull off upsets and climb the ladder quietly. Either way can't wait to see you guys over at the Tsongas!
You've got a great coach. Don't think it will take you long to be consistently better than, for instance, UMass-Amherst. And based on what we saw this year I think UConn could probably be even with Merrimack pretty quickly, though maybe Merrimack rebuilds.
The XL Center will always be too big. Even if UConn hockey becomes a huge thing, it will never fill an AHL arena consistently - big time Eastern college hockey crowds are 6k, 7k, 8k tops. But I am looking forward to attending games there and getting the downtown vibe, and soaking in some Whalers history (plus I'm sure plenty of BC alums in CT will make the trip, which will be fun )
If UConn builds a nice on-campus facility and hangs on to Cavanaugh they can be a decent factor in hEA long term.

Good luck UConn, you guys are in store for some trial by fire. We'll miss beating up on you and ending your season. - xo RIT
