    Although I've wished for a Sneddon firing on more than one occasion, there is ZERO chance this will happen. He's under contract through the 2019-20 season and UVM is not the type of school to fire a coach under contract. Heck, UVM really isn't the type of school to not renew a coaching contract. It's almost like once they're hired they have tenure.

      We have a new AD... maybe things will change. Doubtful in the hiring/firing dept. but maybe...

        It is only through 2018. They might be willing to eat a year......but I doubt it.

          Aren't you guys trying to fundraise a new BB arena? I doubt anyone wants to be paying two coaches for hockey while trying to raise money for a new gym.

                      Northeastern should be embarrassed if they finish behind Vermont.

                        Late season surges rarely translate into successful follow up seasons. They should be embarrassed, and I'm sure they will be.

                          They would certainly be in a familiar position.

                            2-5 are ridiculously close, in my opinion. I think PC is way underrated —a full season of Walman being healthy? Watch out! — and that BC will be stronger than most think (Jerry always finds a way), but I have them at 6 simply because of the quality of the teams ahead of them. Last year's excellent, Frozen Four-caliber BC team would probably be third or fourth on this list IMO. I also do not believe BU is infallible (the Eastern Bias podcast said this week that they have a shot at going undefeated; I don't know if I buy that) but that they are still by-and-away the best in the conference.

                            Here's to hoping for 6 HEA and 5 ECAC bids this year!

                              I remember those UNH regular season titles hanging from our rafters...now even those are out of reach. I barely follow the program anymore, but it'll be fun to go watch a few games this year. I have heard attendance has been trending downward, so maybe it'll be easy to get some good seats. So we have the youngest Van-Riemsdyk which will add something - is he an NHL pedigree like his brothers?

                              Oh and glad BU managed to cherry pick the NHL draft for its entire team. This season should be about as fair as bringing a machine gun to a squirt gun fight.

                                "Late-season" implies like a 6-0 run, they went 21-1 at one point, that's not a surge, that's a full turnaround. Also they have a superior incoming class and more talent on the roster to begin with, so yes, if they finish behind UVM, that should be considered a failure.

                                Behind UML, BC, PC, BU, ND, fine, but not UVM.
