    Great news indeed!

    This. The second he went down they probably weren't a Frozen Four team anymore. They probably were lucky to win one game with the right draw. They probably lose to anyone else.

    That was very tough and a shame. It reminded me of Yale's infamous "pool accident" (was that Kaufmann?) where one event just drives a stake right into a team's balls.

    Kep.....Just imagine how much the prices of Frozen Four tickets dropped without Cornell and Quinnipiac in that semifinal. I feel like that would have been an extremely tough ticket to get with Ithaca 2 1/2 from Buffalo along with Quinnipiac students and alum making the trek to Buffalo as well.

    Sean Backman. Unlike Fortunato, it was not really an accident...

    I'm not sure if UMD travels well. They sure ought to given how consistently good they have become.

    I agree a Cornell-Q SF in Buffalo would have been packed. In 2003 we had a huge contingent in Buffalo, and I've seen Q pull very well in Lake Placid which is no more difficult to get to.

    Fox, Makar, and Schuldt are the Hobey finalists. Priskie didn't make it. 😕

    Don't think Chase had a shot after the Yale incident. Plus, after Brandon went down, so did his numbers. Hard to play QB and be the primary scoring threat. I think he had to do a lot more puck handling post Fortunato injury.

    Well, as I recall it happened after they had been knocked out of the ECACs, and I root for all ECAC teams in the NC$$. I even root for those Cantab eejits, not that it ever stops them from choking in the First Round every year.

    This. Also he had to increase his defensive play as well.

    Yes, with only a morning skate as practice and especially playing against a team that wears pretty much the same uniform he played in for the last 3 years . The kid will be all right.

    Fortunato signed a 2-yr entry level contract with Nashville!

    Congrats Brandon!

    QU-AL, you know I am a big fan but the hip-hop music does not go with hockey...at all. I have to admit, I am proud of the season because I thought those Brave Bobcats would have beat Providence and we know UMASS was a good match also.

    This team did better than OK after Brandon went down.

    Can someone please tell me what really happened with Brandon...dumb hip check by someone playing games in practice? Love to know what really happened. So hope he is recovering well this summer knowing what a positive impact he made and is being recognized for it....also only a few of my friends acknowledged what a great player Brogan is!! He made some very mature, pro moves with regularity and to some of my friends was much better player than recognized for. They wonder why no one drafted him.

    The universal feedback from my group of hockey heads is that Rand needs to brung in some size to protect his players from getting hit hard. Understandably he likes the 6' 180 lb skaters that play offensive minded defense and defensive minded offense.

    Goalie: Keith is an absolutely great kid, really a great person! But, he lost the job plain & simple and I actually called out earlier this season for being so high on Shorty and down on Keith. QU-AL, you were 1 million % correct! I was wrong.

    If Keith does not get good enough to replace Shorty, we are going to have a long season but I think he will rise to the occasion, especially since he has all summer to work on things, like how to be the best goalie in the country.

    offense: Odeen is just not Odeen without a rock solid connection back to the Defense and I don't care what his numbers say, I believe he played injured and a bit lost once Brandon went gone. No one in my opinion, including the baby bobcats, picked up the offensive slack.

    Way too many one-timers, not crisp passing. no leadership and then Nick Danger (Jermaine) would explode out onto the ice and just rush both directions playing with abandonment for his own health (is he OK from his injury currently?) and purpose unlike others on this team, minute to minute.

    I think the baby Bobcats will rise to their Sophomore betterment; Nick Jermaine will play hard until he injuries himself, so I would elevate him to top line until he injures himself . . . kid plays hard and I like his attitude so much! Showed me so much from the previous season where that team including Chase was huge disappointment.

    I want UMASS to win Frozen Four.....

    Have a good summer to all of you Brave Bobcat fans and hope to read updates, thoughts a summer....
