    Re: Union College: 2015-2016

    I'm not very good at it, but is anyone going to start an off-season thread?

    The schedule is out. Union will play 14 of its 34 games at Messa, its fewest at home since 2011-12. That does not bother me. Some years we are a better road team than home team. I believe our ice sheet tends to negate any speed advantage we have.

    North Dakota - NCHC
    Michigan (2) - Big10

    BU - HE
    VT (2) - HE

    AI - AHA
    SH - AHA
    RIT - AHA
    Niagra - AHA
    HC - AHA

    Tournament - RPI

    5 AHA matchups .... that's a change. Only the Mayors Cup for tournament play.

    Six seniors
    - Krug
    - Taylor *
    - Eli *
    - Pontarelli *
    - Vecch *
    - Sak

    * started and played on National Championship Team.

    Was wondering if something like that might happen.. not a huge surprise, as Ammirato was looking like an odd man out next season. I wish him well, as he has talent and hopefully can find success at the D-3 level. Zach-E makes sense as a replacement, since he is the oldest of the forward recruits that were not expected to be coming.

    Very interesting .... thanks !!!

    If it happens, looks like a net plus. Sorry to see Ammarito leave. With the incoming talent, the writing might have been on the wall. Would love to see the "Big Boys" Maier, Dufour, Litchenwald and Vidmar step up and have a great year. Going to be a lot of competition for those forward positions next year.

    ------------------------------------------
    Upperclass -

    1 Foo - Vecchione - Supinski
    2 Walker - Scarfo - Maier
    3 Dufour - Litchenwald - Vidmar
    4 Hynes - Taylor - Pontarelli

    1 Bassard - Light
    2 Cambell - Taylor
    3 Krug - DeSimone

    Sak
    Kupsky
    Young

    --------------------------------------------
    Freshmen -

    Brown - F
    Rinaldi - F
    Burton - F
    Harrison - F
    Emelifeonwu - F ?
    Newhouse - D
    Vas Kulias - D

    He will turn 20 next Fall so he doesn't have to come this year, but it would not be a big surprise if he did. This would make 5 incoming to replace 4 graduating forwards, but that also would not be a surprise. Bottom line is we won't know until the announcement is made of next year's class. You can't go by the web lists too much as they are notoriously inaccurate. Subjectively, it looks like Zach could use another year of seasoning to work on his offensive skills. Otherwise fits the mold of the raw skilled, power-forward type that Bennett & company seem to like - even if most of them don't seem to pan out on the offensive they still can be useful role players.

    You could always take a look at the schedules thread; you'd be able to see everyone in the ECAC, as I know there was a bit of a following for it last year.

    N. Dakota
    B.U.
    Niagra - top AHA
    RIT - top AHA
    Umass Amherst
    Vermont

    RPI will be #9. I am not sure who the other three will be. Perhaps a tournament. Looking at the other ECAC teams it appears that many have scheduled UML this year. Last year it looked like Merrimack had lots of ECAC NC foes.

    Not sure what to expect for the ECAC this year non-conference wise. The non- ivy's can help by getting some wins early.

    Agreed .....
    Great opportunity for both of us and for the rest of the non- ivy's to establish a strong league NC record.

    Clarkson has a tough Non-Conf Schedule and with no AHA teams unless they meet Holy Cross in the ND Tourney might be a tad more difficult than Unions.

    vs. Vermont
    @ Vermont
    vs. UNH
    vs. Merrimack
    @ UMass-Lowell
    @ Providence
    vs. Wisconsin
    vs. Minnesota
    Notre Dame tournament (vs. Notre Dame, play winner/loser of Yale and Holy Cross)
    @ Northeastern
    vs. RPI in Lake Placid
