    Did you get that? I'll say it again.

    One more time, with feeling.

    UAH has a full independent schedule for next season, and strong starts for 12-13 and 13-14. This was true when Danton was the head coach, and Chris has further developed the schedule. There are some great series on the schedule next season, and they aren't all on the road.

    I fully expect the western college hockey conference situation will be hashed out either this summer or next. I think that we all know that the conference situation needs to change for UAH for us to be viable long-term. But THERE WILL BE UAH HOCKEY IN 2011-12.

    SING IT!!! THERE WILL BE UAH HOCKEY IN 2011-12!

    The ACHA meetings take place at the end of April, right? I'm wondering if the Big Ten has to make an official decision about the formation of the BTHC by that time before the coaches can start talking realignment.

    Is at Merrimack on the schedule for 2011-12? Can you give college hockey fans any insight on the schedule for next year?

    I think they may have pulled it out of Extra; I talked about it with Todd Milewski.

    Oddly enough, I was able to read it without needing Extra: http://www.uscho.com/2011/02/15/road...see-positives/

    If you can't see it, here's some quick bullet points. There were many quotes from Luongo and Burkholder, and there didn't seem to be anything UAH followers didn't already know.

    * Coach Luongo felt tough schedule strengthened players' resolve.
    * Freshmen goaltenders showed signs of promise.
    * Baxter and Easton stepped up with upperclassmen leadership.
    * Luongo sees tough, independent schedule as selling point in recruiting.
    * Waiting on what happens with Penn State.

    Losing Baxter will hurt. He's really come into his own this year. He did play in juniors, but Jim is the age of the average college student, having enrolled at 18.

    Losing Burkholder hurts on- and off-ice. Sadly, Ryan was never the same after his shoulder injury the first weekend against Ferris. I never heard him use that as an excuse.

    Ruffini and Bruni ... both really good guys, but they've been inconsistent this year, unfortunately. I really thought that Ruffles would be a consistent scorer this year, and it just didn't happen.

    Koudys has played well this year, working his way back into the lineup after not playing much last year.

    Lastly, Fairbanks. Chris knows what he is and isn't. I don't see him taking many shifts off. He told me once at a post-game meal that he knows that he's not playing hockey at the next level, but he's worked hard and had fun. I talk more with Chris than the other guys, and I know that he speaks for all of them when he expresses his frustration with the results this year.

    Losing senior experience is never easy, and having a two-man junior class compounds that. If there's a good thing amidst all the frustration, it's that the freshmen got a lot of ice time this year. The game should slow down for them next year. What will also help is a full offseason of cohesion with the coaching. Bringing in assistants in very late meant that they were all feeling each other out while working in new players.

    Good first period from the guys last night, and then not for the other two. 5GA on 31SOG just won't cut it. Neither will allowing two SHG.
