So far there has been no "life after Lovisa" and that's very sad. I think this thread needs to be replaced by a new thread because having or not having Lovisa on the team anymore is irrelevant. I said it way back, she didn't score goals either. She was and is a great goalie, but obviously she's not the answer to what this team needs.

    Iíd agree 100% Ė this team will succeed or not based on if any of the current forwards improved significantly or if any of the forwards coming in can score. Shelfit had a really good observation in another thread about how hard it is for traditionally weak programs to get strong since there is not really enough talent to go around. This seems to be the biggest difference in the menís vrs womenís game. In the menís game, you can argue there is too much talent and not enough schools so schools like Union are able to compete (and win!) for national titles if you have the right staff. Read the Penn State thread and their scoring issues with a very respected coach. It seems for whatever reason most top end players would rather play 4th line at a Wisconsin than be presumably 1st line somewhere else (and on full scholarship you would assume). I watched a bit of Harvard this year and they had really only 1 forward who stood out but it resulted in a top 10ish team. An injury or two you go from top 10 to bottom 10 really fast for most programs.

    But itís fact!!!
    Now that there is confirmation of the transfer, it is worth saying that my questioning was more about the anonymous leaking of it. I'll speak for myself, but I don't like participating in the transfer rumor gossip until somebody puts their real name next to the reporting or there is a press release. I think the players and the team should have some control over the timing of these announcements.

    I can get why it is demoralizing to the point of transferring when you are on an 0-33-1 team, regardless of the position you play, but if you are a goaltender, don't you want to face a lot of shots, even 60 minutes worth? What else is there for you to do other than stand there?

    I think that is right, and regarding this particular transfer, it appears that she will be immediately eligible. I am assuming that RPI must have granted a release in order for her to avoid sitting out a year. Or is there another factor or rule that applied here?

    The rule is different for women.

    Do you know how so? Is it just a simple rule that players can transfer without penalty?

    Yes, since women's ice hockey (as opposed to men) is a 'non-revenue sport', anybody can transfer and have immediate eligibility. Though it looks like the rules will change so all sports will allow https://www.si.com/college/oklahomas...tate-complianc

    Not true. WCHA, womenís hockey rules are you have to sit out a year if you transfer within the conference Transfer to a different conference or transfer into the WCHA from a different conference, however, and you can play right away.

    Correct, each conference can set their own rules more strict than the NCAA. Ivy league for example not allowing a redshirt year.

    When did this rule come into play? My daughter was redshirted after an injury.

    Ivy league does not allow medical redshirts under normal circumstances nor can they be enrolled as a graduate student. Several high end players had to transfer to other schools upon graduation because of these rules. Your daughter would still have a year of eligibility for NCAA, just elsewhere (non-Ivy). Here are a couple of articles.

    Is this rule recent? My daughter had surgery right before her senior season started due to a training accident. She was allowed to "red shirt" that season and then played the following year.

    There are waivers allowed for nearly any rule, but if your D graduated after her 4 years and then applied (and was granted) another year while a grad student, it must have been an exception situation.

    She decided not to graduate the red shirt year. She took a 5th year to finish her undergrad.
