I'm going to say it right here, right now, that I believe that MS should start next season, and not any time later. It's really time for UNH hockey to move on to new coaching ideas etc. That doesn't mean that I do not have respect for what Coach U has done over the years I know he has his heart in the right place and all the success he has had, he has earned every bit of it. It's just time. And you won't catch me bashing him on this forum. I'm sure I am disappointing some who follow this board...that doesn't mean I am any less of a fan. And my opinion on the matter means diddley squat anyway in the grand scheme of things...

Trust me I support the team on the ice and don't believe in bashing Umile either, but it is time to move on. I've had season tickets since the Whit opened, and despite the lack of success I am still there at every game (cannot say that for most of the season tickets holders around us, as most are gone). Why would you disappoint? You believe its time for Umile to step aside, that's a valid opinion, and one that is shared by many. Hey, I'm all for a quick turnaround, just not sure its in the cards.

Oh I'm sure you do support the team!! I was speaking in very broad terms. I just think since my debut here on this forum most would be surprised that I am capable of taking off my those rose (or blue) colored glasses once in awhile 😉 Hoping this is not our last home game...

I'm a believer that things go in cycles.

Absolutely true...that's the basis of life. Things always turn around...it just takes patience (sometime more than others...) :D

As it should be. We all have short memories. It's always "what have you done for me lately?" I have reacted impulsively many times in my life and have said things that I regret. It's better to take the high road. I know some will say "Easy for you to say," but there have been some GREAT moments in UNH Hockey history and DU has been a major player in a great many of them.

Bazin is not leaving Lowell for UNH

Lighten up Francis.

Guess reading comprehension isn't a priority at UML

Well the puck has dropped for senior night and miraculously went into a net 15 seconds in, and not behind Tirone

As a season ticket holder and alumnus I appreciate the donations for the new scoreboard but for the love of Christ can we find someone to operate it and show replays. Nothing from the goal

Are you really surprised? First goal not his fault. 2nd all on him. 150 foot stretch passes on powers plays accomplish nothing.

Ready for the off season thread

Senior night, last home game, energy and all that only goes so far. Eventually lack of talent plays out and better teams win

Can anyone explain what the hell Tirone was doing on the 4th goal? He is regressing per game at a rapid rate. Might as well pull him and play without. He is brutal

so lets call this one a loss...

NU just tied the score in Maine. A win puts the Huskies out of reach in the race for home ice. UConn's win will pull them even with UNH and give them a tie-breaking edge. Merrimack is currently down a goal in the third at UVM and would remain two points ahead of the Wildcats if that score holds. A comeback win or a tie from MC and home ice is lost.

Assuming UVM holds on, UNH will need a win at UConn and a second UVM win over Merrimack to sneak into the final home ice spot for the first round...

IMO, UNH wins a first round series at home, they do not on the road. Either way the season ends before Boston, but Kelleher needs those extra games and needs to light them up to get serious Hobey consideration (it is his would be teammates award to lose). Losing out on those games could also cost him HE POY and Walter Brown awards. I don't see how he misses out on a first team AA nod...

----

Additionally, hopefully this puts the UConn is a cupcake silliness to rest. They have begun to evolve. Perception of them needs to do the same. We can all whine about how we've fallen this far to be an equal to UConn at this stage in their development. But UNH hockey is NOT better than UConn hockey. No matter how much some hate and disrespect their coach. They are dramatically better between the pipes and on defense - and while UNH scores more goals they are not that far ahead of UConn offensively. Thompson and Letunov are every bit a talent match of r UNHs first line - both are essentially one line teams. I'd trade our coaching situation for theirs in a heartbeat...

UVM holds on and beats MC - so home ice is still a possibility. NU still leads ME and Aston-Reese's two-point night (already) vaults him into a tie with Kelleher in the national scoring race and puts him just two point behind in HE scoring...

Assuming NU wins, a UNH win and an MC loss tomorrow means UNH hosts MC. A UNH loss or an MC win means UNH is on the road with possibilities still in play to travel to NU, MC or UConn...

Edit - Northeastern wins in OT and ZAR picks up his third point of the night to take over the national scoring lead and draws within one of TK in HE play...

Just pathetic. If the players play like they don't care, why should we? I have it on good authority that a member of the 1999 team, who was there last week as well, walked out in disgust. Really hard to watch.

Thin thin thin on the blue line heard Wyse is hurt? Doesn't take away how flat we played. Dan I hear you about UConn but we didn't even make it a game. Ok one more...

3-9-3 second half, 1-8-1 in the last ten...

If you're arguing that I'm being generous in saying we're equal to UConn, I wouldn't disagree much if at all...

Not acceptable...it's just not acceptable. Period. But I'm not going to lay this entirely on the players....they did not look prepared and then couple that with a lack of motivation through most of the game. Oh whatever...
