    The bleachers are being removed. There will be seat backs on the entire home side at the beginning of the season. The bleachers on the visitors side will be replaced with seat backs during the winter break. There are some new bleachers being installed at one end of the ice as a new student section.

    Was at Merrimack yesterday, it does not look like they are adding these seats but simply putting in new bleachers. Is that correct?

    The list notes a number of players who are already in the 'Mack HOF. Really surprised about Vesey and Pion (are they in now?). Someone posted that this year's team may be Merrimack's best, but their '88 team made it to the 2nd round of the NCAA's bowing to eventual champ Lake Superior State. Vesey won the DII-III East Hobey Baker award.
    Of course Vesey is in......

    Here is the question: which Merrimack hockey players (D1 or D2) should be in the Hall of Fame?

    Good memory, Dan's older brother David was a UNH commit...

    http://bruinsblog.projo.com/2009/03/...ns-add-oh.html

    Some background on David Kolomatis:

    After a year with the New Jersey Rockets Junior B team, Kolomatis was invited to join the U.S. National Development Program Under-17 team, where his teammates included the likes of Pat Kane, James van Riemsdyk and Kevin Shattenkirk.

    In late 2005, Kolomatis committed to the University of New Hampshire, where he would have played with his friend van Riemsdyk.

    He left the national program in 2006 after a dispute with coach Ron Rolston. After Kolomatis injured a shoulder and a leg, Rolston reportedly told him that the team couldn't get him an appointment for an MRI for eight weeks.

    While Kolomatis rehabbed his injuries, Owen Sound offered Kolomatis an opportunity to play there with Bobby Sanguinetti, who like Kolomatis and van Riemsdyk is a New Jersey native. Sanguinetti is a Rangers first-round pick who is finishing up his first season with Hartford.

    I would guess he would play at his current weight, maybe add 7-10 tops. His game is speed and quickness. Different than a lot of the d Dennehy has been bringing in size wise.

    This is him with Steel last year scoring on power play. Last game of year, out of playoffs,a little sloppy. He is number 22

    Three ten goal scorers on one line sounds like a win-win . Velleca (8 goals) will definitely be in the mix too, he offers a ton of speed on the wing to take lead passes from Barton or Da Costa.

    The second line is a tough one to discern, you have to think Cucci sticks as the center there with Brodhag/Velleca filling out one wing and then possibly Jesse Todd or Mike Collins rounding it out. Collins is a finisher, no doubt but Todd has a big frame and has two years under his belt with Dennehy.
    Have to agree, have to think that Cucci would stay there and they'll be some battles for the other spots. We've seen in the past that Dennehy isn't afraid to mix things up.

    Barton's an obvious choice since they were together almost all of last season. Putting Brodhag on RW would make a pretty nasty line, but I think Brodhag played with Cucci most of last season, so Dennehy might wanna keep him on the 2nd line. If I'm not mistaken, Velleca played on the top line quite a bit, so I guess that could work again.
