Are they streaming the press conference today?
@mattyfranche: I have decided to reopen my recruitment process and decommit from Merrimack College, looking forward to the challenges ahead!
Article from the Mack Report site:
Thoughts from presser:
1) both Gibson and Borek thanked GALLANT in their opening statement. ***?? Seems like the rumors are true about his influence. Borek said he met with GALLANT, hopey, and Gibson on his first visit. Wow.
2) I actually really liked his message and his attitude. Exactly what I wanted to hear.. and i think what a lot of alums wanted to hear. The story about his son was very touching.
3) Gibson was a college baseball player? Yet bulldozed MCs baseball field and has pretty much buried that program? What kind of former athlete would do that to THEIR sport - weird.

Really impressed with Boreks interview with McMahon and CHN. Very self aware and honest when talking about Lake state.. very self aware, knows his vision, and has a fire and intensity that is refreshing. I was skeptical but very excited to see how things work out.
I really respect that Hopey is not about a "Well, that's how we always did it" culture. Which Merrimack traditionally had.. very incestuous in terms of hiring back alums into staff and faculty.. I think there's a place for that but in order to improve as a school, we have to balance that with looking outside the bubble.
I don't know much about this Gallant guy as a person, and it is a little concerning if he butted heads with all around great guy Dennehey, but one major donor is better than zero major donors. We very easily could have ended up like Mt. Ida. And the academic offerings at the school seem to be doing pretty well, which is what really ends up being important.

Borek said himself: "were here to win championships"
People can laugh at that.. whatever, but it's a nice change! Guess what? If he never wins a championship- if he only has 2 winning seasons over 13 years ... he's still accomplished as much as the previous guy! Why not use this rhetoric?! I love it.
anyone hearing anything about this Gallant guy?Some of the players who where there when I was at the school, who I am still close too, say that there are some things there that might come out soon and could be bad.

Yes saw that reported last week. McMahon tweeted it......
We got some new sweaters: https://www.themackreport.com/news/me...ockey-jerseys/
I like the return to home whites and the option for the third jersey. I like the commitment to the MC logo - I believe it has gotten some traction out there in the world. Otherwise, a little blah. I liked our old road jerseys a lot. I know Underarmor does BC as well and they also are pretty meh outside some of their gimmick jerseys.
Like The new white jerseys - sad to see the old blues go.. always a fan favorite. Borek got his first recruit.. supposedly "seney-esque" lots of speed/hard working.
Also seems like we'll be playing Bentley at their new arena this year.. looking forward to that.
I would be interested if Borek was on him in his 16U days while at UNH and this is the culmination chasing the kid since he was 15 or 16?
He committed to Brown before 13-14 season coming out of 16U play for 16-17. Not sure of why decommitted from Brown in Ď16 except he was deferred, in interim while committed he went to the Wenatchee after a poor 1/3 of season in USHL and had a full season at Wenatchee which would leave his future in those who Still saw positive projection in his skill set.
Borek clearly did as sometime in fall of Ď16 PC showed interest in him. Suspect he couldnít sell Leaman on him and first Forward PC got about time interest waned was another Borek pick from his UNH days Jason OíNeill, so Iíd say his expectations would be slightly lesser version of OíNeill pumped up by fact Borek clearly sees something to build on in this kid.
I do not think Lake Superior fans were to happy with the time Borek spent there as head coach .
