      A good case and point is to look at what happened when Coach Herrion was let go last year, when many of his players immediately put their names into the transfer portal. Coach Davis was able to lure back #1 player Clarence Daniels (who was gathering some serious interest from some D-1 basketball powers) and 6'10" Ridvan Tutic. That, coupled with the fact that coach Davis was able to bring in decent new talent and that Mens Basketball is enjoying a winning season thus far means that AD Rich made the right decision. If you read some of the comments on the UNH basketball boards, several posters have even said that AD Rich "knocked it out of the ballpark" in hiring Nathan Davis.

      If it all comes to fruition, I expect any new hire for Mens Hockey to do the same thing, and that is to sell, sell, SELL. JMHO.
      Spot on. Also paying Coach Davis less than Coach Herrion was making.
      I will not be out cheered in my own building.

        I thought so too, but Davis is actually making more than Souza

          At the moment there would be two auto seeds, the tourney winners in the AHA and CCHA, but not the Independents. So, that means the PWR cutoff would be 14th, unless I am missing something. I do not think that even going 0.500 over our remaining 12 games would maintain our 16th in PWR, let alone jump back up to 14th, unless the six wins were against BC, BU, and Maine. The losses to Yukon and UVM were devastating to our PWR, especially the home loss to Yukon.
          if you modify game results on CHN pairwise…
          beat Army #12 pairwise
          beat UCONN and UVM #10 pairwise
          beat Army, UCONN and UVM #9

                BU is slumping. Got them right where we want them.

                  You’re right. Did the U pull a little salary reporting slight of hand there?

                    Thanks! Amazing that the loss to Army was so significant to UNH PWR.

                      And NU is playing much better of late. Good that we got those three wins when we did.

                        Their game with Maine should be very interesting, playing at Matthews and not the perennial house of horrors Alfond! I think UNH often plays to
                        their competition (Army, UVM). What a difference it makes when they come to play (UVM Sat night).

                        Friday's game I think they will come out swinging, if indeed BU's "slumping" and if they can stay out of the box (going to be hard)
                        we could make a game of it. Just depends on which UNH team shows up...that's the tricky part. I'd imagine they are thinking there is
                        'no way we can lose to UNH'. Hopefully UNH rises to the occassion.

                        Going back to NU, curious how they will fare in the Beanpot. Most likely they will defeat Harvard and if I'm guessing they'll
                        face BC in the final. Could they pull an upset and repeat as 'pot champion?

                        • Wondering if former UNH Capt. Chase "Mr. Clutch" Stevenson is going to be playing this weekend when MC comes to town? Hear he's been out with
                          injuries...

                          BU's game is going to be a 'blue out the 'Whitt' and this season (unlike last) UNH will be in their blues..was interesting to see that UNH wore their whites up at UVM...?

                            Matt Fornataro's nickname within the team when he was at UNH was "Fonzie", hence the photo.

                            You could easily describe his post-UNH career as "semi-pro" ...

                              Maybe he can go commiserate with BvR, Jackson Pierson and Damien Carfagna over their decisions to leave town.

                              • Looks like we’re on the outside looking in for Week 2 of USCHO bracketology. Which team in this bracket can UNH steal a spot from and how do they get there it seems like realistically if we want to sneak in, we’re going to have to take a seed from.
