Letís be honest. Playing hockey in Orono, ME is a tough sell when you play in a league with the likes of BC, Providence, Northeastern, UMass, BU and other big money schools. Thereís a reason why Maine, Vermont, Merrimack and UNH have been struggling. Theyíre all lower-budget schools that struggle to attract a full team loaded with talent.
I guess if I were to put fault on anyone it would be the University of Maine. The facilities/budget just arenít on point with a lot of other schools in the country. We saw that with the football program when half the football staff left for better paying jobs after the season.
