    Re: UNH Wildcats 2012-2013 Postseason Thread

    Coming back to the States for a bit to catch the Icebreaker in Minny and our home openers v. Michigan.

    Anybody going to be in Minneapolis? I'd be glad to host a pre-game session or two. Got my tix on StubHub for both days.

    I believe they were mailed Friday. So you should see them this week.

    We are on the same page. I think you will see more of the returning 1-4 but I doubt you will see a 5-6 pair with 2 inexperienced D-men particularly at the start of the year. To kick off the season you need to get those inexperienced guys up to speed in the lowest risk situation and I have a hard time seeing that as out together.

    Instead at critical parts of the game you will likely see a short bench.

    However I am not high on you D pairs. I can't see the 3 pair being that inexperienced. I think you will see the 2 new D-men mixed into the 2nd and 3rd pairing. Even if the bench get short from time to time.
    I thought about that too but to me it seemed like the top 4 defencman on the team are significantly more talented than the other 4. I felt like the thinning our d corps would negatively affect the play of whoever we put on out with Quast or Cleland. I think that Pesce, TVR, Knodel, and even Agosta deserve over 20 minutes of ice time a game and in order to give them that ice time with some consistency I think we would need to load up the top four.

    This is in no way anything against our bottom 4 defenseman. I just think that the talent and experience in our top 4 needs to be utilized in order for us to win. I think that Quast and the 2 freshman will get a lot of valuable experience and will be important on the bottom pair and can take some of the pressure of the top 4 and allow the top them to be able to play more aggressively and dictate matchups.

    As for Randall he seems like a hometown boy that was willing to take the fact that he possibly wont play in order to get a roster spot on his favorite college hockey team. He had one good year in the EJHL after failing to make it as a forward. He is a feel good story but I don't see any future for him on the team. Hopefully he is fine with that and can be a good practice body.

    Speelman Sorkin Correale Speelman are good enough defensively to make up for Sorkin and I think that Sorkin and Correale will be very strong offensively

    Thrush Silengo Kelleher Gives Kelleher some fast players with talent to work with until he is ready to jump to the top line part way through the year

    Gaudreault Camper MacDonald Solid defensively and has a chance to score some goals. That's all you can ask from a 4th line.

    When Kelleher shows he is ready I would move him up to the first line and drop Willows to the 3rd line

    TVR Agosta More of a stay at home defenseman with TVR while he can help create offense
    Knodel Pesche Both are strong defensively and are more hybrid players that can feed off each other

    Like these line combos.

    I'm curious though...does anyone know where Ryan Randall fits in Umile's defensive pairing schemes? I mean he's a junior and has yet to skate one shift. Meanwhile, talented d-men are being recruited for '14 and '15, presumably to replace current players who or may not be leaving early.
