    Re: Union College: 2019-2020

    In the universe of Boston D1 college hockey and especially Hockey East, we were an unknown 7-8 years ago. IMO not so much any more. With Yale and Union winning national championships in 2013 and 2014, we and the ECAC have come a long way since the 1980's and Harvard and Cornell and Dryden. Before last week's loss to BU we were 2-2-1 against BU and 2-0 against BC, college hockey powers. It seems like more and more ECAC players are being recruited to the pro's as they recognize the leagues success. What makes our success and the success of the ECAC so remarkable is that we don't have, as they say in the business word, sustainable competitive advantage. Our success at Union is based on seamless support from all Union College stakeholders, great talent discovery and recruiting and great developmental coaching. It's a hard combination to orchestrate. It's going to be a very challenging month and a challenging year for fans and coaches alike. We lost so much. We had so many departures and injuries. The freshmen players are going to have a D1 "baptism by fire" as they work their way through a very difficult October. Regardless of the outcome, I am going to be cheering my guts out for them all the way.

    Patience is required in deed. I honestly thought PK and PP was ok. To much space in the slot and the O-zone. Left Hanson high and dry.
    Again this is a blank sheet. I see a lot of talent here. Let the Gelling and Growing Commence.

    In years past the non-ivy ECAC usually got off to a strong start with NC competition. This helped in the pairwise and translated into more ECAC teams qualifying for the NCAA tournament. Not sure this will be the case this year.

    Can we keep up consistent physicality while honing the defense until the offense starts clicking? Can we use these non-conference games to prep for league play?

    Being undisciplined will cost you. Perfect example right there. Not the only time this year with Estes. (Great player, but needs to stay out of the box)

    An example of a player emerging from the penalty box and not being marked by the defense.
    And, I understand, a quirky bounce of the puck to set him up in front.

    Another tough weekend for the Dutch at ZooMass. I understand the reasoning (PW), but UC seems to stack a tough schedule right out of the box in recent years, to poor results.

    Interesting question.
    Is the goal to get more exposure for the program?

    It will be interesting to see how U Mass does without Cole Makar (who is scoring a lot of points for Colorado.)

    And outshot 47-17, including by a 22-2 margin in the third period.

    UC needs to start scheduling easier early season competition. The last few years, their seasons end before the ECAC comp even begins.

    I think that we need to think about the possibility of a 5 or 6 win season. Our strong suit this year was supposed defense but we are unable to keep a good offensive team in check. When we are on offense we are unable to get the puck out of the zone. No one's fault. We just don't have the skill, talent and/or experience. By the way, Ken Schott, IMO sucks. Good times or bad, he will find something shi**y to say about the team or the school or the coaches.
