    Three years ago, you never heard of women's hockey de-commitments. It is now rapidly becoming the new normal.

      Every other D1 team outside the 6 ivys + RPI and Union have at least tried to have a season. No surprise players want to go to places where they are allowed to play. Heard there is a lot of shuffling at the ivys as well.

        The men's team has gotten 6 commitments since September despite the shutdown; the women's team hasn't gotten any.

          Not to do an expose on men's vrs women's hockey and available talent pools, but a quick look shows very little commitment activity on the women's side for all programs. Add to that, with all NCAA players getting an extra year and I suspect most women players will take advantage over men (who have a 'real' pro route), I think everyone is trying to figure out what that means for their rosters for the next 4 years.

            I agree figuring out the rosters is an issue. And while I thought that most women would use the fifth year at first, I’m reconsidering after talking to some players. A lot of women players want to get on with their lives. Playing a fifth year for the sake of it is not always that attractive. If they can go to graduate school maybe- but not all of them want to just hang out for hockey.
