Pretty good analysis. This Coach is a terrible recruiter. I have seen him in the rink bypass a solid D1 prospect and go for a bubble player. 2 years later the player he didn't take flourish and the one he did not so much. It is hard to figure out what he sees in a player. All that being said, he is one of the nicest guys around.
He does seem like a decent guy. But why does he not like local recruits? There are a lot of good players in New England, probably a few who would have a lot of pride lacing it up for PC. Too bad, it's a great school with top notch facilities.

He is a very nice guy but it's definitely not working this season - 0 and 6 and they have only really been competitive in one game this season against Vermont (goaltending does seem a little better though). I can easily see this team ending up with less than last year's 6 wins - their saving grace may be the addition of Merrimack to HE, but that team has a lot of heart and will give Providence a run. 8 of the next 11 games are against UNH, Vermont, Brown, Merrimack, and Union - pretty much the likely doormats this season of their respective leagues. The results in these games should give a pretty good indication of how bad this season will end up.

First glad to see all four goalies are getting a chance to solve the issue. Hopefully one will emerge.

Goal scoring again appears to be an equal or greater problem.

It appears D Liz Halvorson who should be a Junior has left the Team. Loss of players from this program is disturbing trend that does not help on ice results or recruiting.

I hope the Friars find success in this upcoming streak of 8 of the next 11 games - a little success might help 9 freshman contribute faster.

Go Friars!

Looking at the PC Roster they have 4 goalies SR Bryant and Morse, then Serviss and FR Myers. Is Serviss a SO or JR? I thought she was a freshman last year, but roster has her listed as a JR?

33 Alanna Serviss JR G 5-7 Chicago, Ill. Chicago Young Americans

Fair is fair! Providence not winning against any team of significance, but are beating some of the doormats - Brown, UNH, UVM. 4-4 in the 8 games since I wrote this post. Showing signs of it being better than I anticipated based on early performance.

Friars match last years win total in first half this year, a long way to go but the future looks at least brighter then its been!

Well, they have proven they can consistently beat the doormats (which is better than I personally thought they would). But they haven't beaten any team with even close to a winning record and the second half schedule is much tougher, so I wouldn't get too carried away just yet.

LOL....That was UW's first series of the year. I'd bet a you a hunk of fine Wisconsin 10 yr old cheddar UW would outscore and outshoot what BC did now that UW's a well oiled machine.

I'm not afraid of the sue. If you can beat the rodents, you can beat anyone. I just wish I could have watched the games to see for myself how it all unfolded.

Unless its a December weekend in 2016, then they can't beat anyone
