      Easy to get all hot under the collar but after watching all the conjecture this past yr where we had all sorts of interesting 'information' about various players this stuff is just aggravating. Hellybucyk was out d/t academic It was all silliness. The kid had a huge GPA and had a medical issue. Kids were coming back no matter what or leaving- people who were in the know posting that they had inside info were off the mark.

      Great troll food but unless there is something from either the U or from the player saying what happened I think I will refrain from passing judgment.

          D1 sports are set up for the coaches and the school.Players can't leave a school and transfer without sitting out a year.Coaches can leave and coach somewhere the next year.If a school takes back a scholarship after the player has gone to school and play also have to sit out a year.So in the case of Amlong the coach de committed him and now he will have to sit out a year

            Why is this such a big issue? It is the coaches right to pull a scholarship and I thought Amlong had some medical issues.

              There are many stories of programs still honoring the scholarship for a player that had medical issues. Those are good stories, as that's how it should be handled.

                  Yes. Take it further. You promise a guy 2 years of 4 years to get him to sign on. Usually, as long as you are doing what's asked of you this will be honored. You have to be a screwup for things to go otherwise.

                  That's two long years to be assured of an award... this is why keeping one's word is important.

                  However, the coach at any time can tell a player honestly that he will not see playing time in the years to come. If he's doing everything asked of him and it just isn't working, I'd honor the scholarship but if he wants to keep playing hockey then encourage him to go elsewhere. Most of the players, when faced with that, will choose hockey over the schollie and go find another school. This is not universal.

                        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.
