Ron Rolston on board as associate head coach just as some of you said a few weeks ago.

Yes and a fine move. Still he contributed in his role last year in 2 key areas Leaman seems to use this coach, advisor and as a teacher. So Leaman’s next move is key. Who gets brought in as the volunteer coach? Needs to be able to fill in whatever difference you perceive still exists between Borek/Mayotte/Rolston and Rolston/Mayotte/??? I would hope Rolston’s USA hockey background is entry to that level.

I'm surprised but happy for him if it's his decision and he's happy with it.

Does anyone have an idea when PC will be releasing the full hockey schedule?

Probably one of the most underrated players in the Leaman era.

At least Nick got a taste of the pro life and a bit of the big bucks, hopefully that will set him up as a great teacher of life and the sport.....good luck to him and his family he treated us here at PC well

I wonder if Conway appearing to stay as a 5th year when not expected affected this

Conger doesn’t stay committed long. Committed to RPI then SLU before settling PC

The limited time he was on the ice I didn't really see anything there. Any of the bottom-tier forwards coming in this year should be able to fill that same role. Seems like it was tough for him to contribute after the return from injury too.

So PC lost Foley, Pinho and Hennessey (part-time player) from their top 12 forwards.

Next year they have O'Brien and Dugan looking to step right into the lineup as freshmen. McDermott from BU and Mikael Hakkarainen are two other options that are going to be in the top 12. I don't see how Conger was going to get playing time over the guys currently on the roster as guys like Vimal, Tait, and Kavanagh need to be in the lineup every game as the fourth liners. I also could see O'Neill being an odd man out as he didn't give PC much with 40 games played and only 8 assists with ZERO goals.

Tyce Thompson also coming in.

Another one to push him down....I think that third line last year was pretty much useless so hopefully they can get a good group in there with the top 4 guys being pretty locked up. (Wilkins, Conway, Bjorkqvist, and Duhaime) I would like to see Vimal get a little more time on the power play playing in front of the net as I think he is the best on the team at deflecting shots and shows good grit.

So we are at the time of year when I get to piece together PC'S upcoming schedule from the schedule of other teams. I have to say that it frustrates me that Only a few teams in HE have their schedules done and it seems the Friars are always last to post theirs. BTW I know what a little ***** I sound like in this post. ;):p

Unfortunately most of last year was a reciprocal from the year before, so we can't use that for an easy prediction. We did hear about a possible Denver series, and I'm assuming the Mayor's Cup will happen unless it is made part of the Ledyard Classic this time around (I don't recall you doing that in the past, but there really hasn't been the opportunity). Atlantic has been tight-lipped, so there's not much that really can be done in terms of predictions.

What are you talking about? Last year's schedule was not a reciprocal of the year before. The year before Hockey East included the Angry Leprechauns. Last year was a completely different schedule for most of the teams in Hockey East. THIS year is mostly a reciprocal of last year, so it actually is fairly easy to figure out when most of the games will be.

You're referring to the in-conference games, which you are correct we know opponents and locations, just not dates. I'm talking about the non-conference games; the other third of your schedule. Miami, RIT, and SLU/CCT were reciprocals from last year. Then there were two tournaments and the Mayor's Cup., the former of which is a one-and-done. Mayor's Cup is an annual event, so we can predict that that's going to happen again, whether it's a standalone game(s) or during Dartmouth's tournament. There are a number of other non-conference games that need to be filled, though, and that's where initial analysis leads us to try to piece together those games.

First off FlagDude I appreciate all the work you put into trying to get schedules out. I love that thread and appreciate the hard work that you all put in gathering info. Some people will complain no matter what but most of us are very appreciative.

I need my insiders. Is Garrett Devine considered Conger's replacement and a go for this September? I think he'll be a good addition. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Nope. As Zlax said we have the depth. Devine is a legacy player. Remember Mark Devine right about/after your time. Then he pretty much had the job Murphy has now in AD dept. it’s his son. Expectations. It’s a kid who always wanted to be a Friar, he’s certainly not cracking next year’s lineup

New rule though can dress 19 skaters.

Thanks Cav! I knew he played at Cushing then the South Shore Kings but I'm embarrassed to say that the fact he was from Colorado threw me. I appreciate the heads up.
