I've been hearing the same thing. Followed up asking what about only having 7 D for next year, was told we have some "studs" coming in.

Lowell has, to date, two defensemen coming in next year. If the Amlong departure is true, we have four defensemen returning from last year. I guess if we're planning on no one getting hurt next season we'll be fine.

And since Norm also can count, that makes it very unlikely that he'd just cut a defenseman.

Why let logic enter the situation?

UMass loses a 2016 recruit and a 2nd Round USHL pick to the OHL. Ouch.

I was thinking the same thing, but sent a message to someone who is close with a few players. I am not arguing the fact that having 4 returning D, Dalton Carter, and two freshman does not sound ideal, and means we lack serious depth at the defenseman position. I am reporting second (based on reading text messages) person sources, admittedly players on the team, so take it for whatever you will.

Maybe a deal has been made with Gordon Bombay to bring in Fulton Reed and Dean Portman, who knows?

Slightly surprised by this, Elie Montero (http://www.goriverhawks.com/news/2014/4/29/WSOC_0429140345.aspx) leaves to take over the head coaching job for SNHU's women's soccer team. I know he went to school there, but moving down a division still surprises me. Best of luck to him.

Well looks like we're adding a couple more games to the schedule next year.

Two sources say Hockey East has finalized its 12-team playoff. All 12 teams will qualify. First round will be best-of-3, just like QF round.

To clarify, teams 1-4 will get first-round byes. 5-8 host 9-12 in first-round series which will be best-of-3.

Man is this the worst idea ever. Make the 22 regular season games mean something and drop the bottom 4 teams.

we all knew this was going to happen, the only problem i have is the silly dancing they seemed to do around it. At this, to me, meh.

Hand counted the games... 33 + 1 extra game against USNDPT.

They are at the limit.
