    Re: Quinnipiac Bobcats 2015 Off-Season: "Thanks for the memories, Jack"

    Where does Peca go in terms of all time Bobcat greats? I've only been around for 4 years so I cant speak in terms of comparison to Cashman and Wong. Thoughts?

      Definitely a top 5 if not top 3, right behind Cashman and Wong. I give the edge to Wong because he was a goal scorer. Peca was a playmaker as his assists total indicates. Peca might be the best puck handler I've seen since 2006-07, however it looks to me like Landon Smith may just have something to say about that.

      Overall, Peca was simply a pleasure to watch. Quick speed, great hands, tons of points. I'll never forget his 3-on-5 shortie against RPI or how he single-handedly dismantled Union in Providence.

        Cashman, Hartzell, Peca, and Wong. Soon to be joined by Anas.

          Hartzell #2?? He was a slightly over .500 goalie before a great senior year. I think you need to include Marshall or Leitch!

            Marshall and Leitch were great, great players -- those guys were there my four years. But they were not all-timers like Cashman and Wong. Reid is still the No. 1 player in program history and it's not even close. Wong and Peca are up there, I think it's fair to put Hartzell near the top, as well, though I think Jamie Holden might have been a better goaltender. Hartzell gets the nod for me because of what he accomplished, but it's close between those two for best goalies in program history.

              I would also like to say thank you to Jack McDonald. I was a senior when he came in and he made a positive impression on me as he attended the conference championship for a lower profile sport in which I participated. With all that he had going on, the fact that he took that time was appreciated. He was focused on raising Quinnipiac's athletic profile (along with the great student-athletes) and it has been a great sense of pride for many alumni and supporters.

              I am going to miss the 4 guys leaving. Federico was a smart, steady minute eater for 3 full seasons. Good leadership and a overall great guy. Barron developed into one of my favorite unsung guys this year. Hustle, working hard - I thought he burned everything on every shift. Agosta got a lot of grief from fans that sat next to me but he was a decent offensive defensemen and a good addition. I got Peca way up the list in the top 5 of all time. Although he did not break all-time records, it was not always about goals & points with him. Face-offs, Kills, Defense, Leadership.... didn't shy away from the physical. Great, great all around player. I hope I get to see him on NHL Network or NBC Sports in the future.

              In terms of the team next season - it will be interesting to see how the young guys develop. Defense is also going to be interesting. With 2 spots graduating, will freshmen take these spots or will a guy like Hilbrich finally seize the opportunity? Being listed at 6'6" 230, I assume his skating is what has kept him back. Sherbinin came in as a defensemen - does he slide back (I like him as a forward, so I hope not)?

              I look forward to the new captains continuing to perpetuate the culture and work ethic to benefit the young guys.

                I expect 2 to 3 defensemen coming in with Priskie, Shiplo and Fritz. I don't expect Hilbrich to contribute at all as he hasn't even played a game in the 3 years in Hamden. If anyone Rand rewards him for sticking it out for 4 years and plays him in a game against an Atlantic Hockey team if they are on the schedule. Otherwise don't expect him to contribute.

                  Chris Heisenberg confirmed to me that Logan Coomes is no longer committed to Quinnipiac. No big loss as had trouble sticking in the BCHL and then the Premier division NJ Hitmen team in the USPHL before going to the Rochester Americans. He had trouble producing against higher level talent. They can find someone better.

                    Understood - but neither had Bui until his Sr. year - not saying they are the same, but it's not unheard of. Do you have any insight as to what is preventing Hilbirch from seeing ice time? He played in the Acadia scrimmage but can't say I focused on him too much as I was watching a lot of the other new guys.

                      Bui played in 11, 11 and 15 games before his senior year which he then played 33. You can't compare the two. Hilbrich hasn't played since Jr. Hockey in Canada. There is much more talent in front of Hilbrich.

                          Best guess... he's too slow to be a D-I defenseman. Otherwise, with his size, we would have seen him by now for sure. I have heard that he's great in practice playing his "roles", and is a genuinely nice kid.

                            Two Frozen Four teams on the schedule! That's awesome... but Bentley?... Holy Cross?... must win games in terms of PWR for sure. Not that there's anything we can do about it, but I'd really like to see the level of competition start to go up from where we are.

                              Playing 3 games against AHA is a waste. I don't mind scheduling at least 1 but that one better be the top tier of AHA.
