    I've said repeatedly that I don't understand why Miami schedules non-conference games at New Hampshire, Maine and Providence when there must be closer, non-flight options. That's what people should be questioning.




    Thread winner.

    A lot of good hockey is on the east coast. Always good to get recruits an easy game to watch (as well as east coast alum). Also gives current players a chance to have their families not travel far for games. Basketball does similar things.

    Bergeron will be named Miami's next Coach.

    FWIW Chinese applications are down something like 37% in the past couple years. I think that source of out-of-state, full-tuition money is going away.
    I think that's a good thing long term. International students pay full tuition now, but don't donate later. The ones at Miami also have a high transfer rate because they try to use it as a stepping stone to transfer to an Ivy League institution.

    Rebuild? Again? What a joke
    I don't think a single person expected this to not be a rebuilding season? Losing Meyer, Sherwood, and Belpedio? Then adding 9 new skaters (and the star didn't make it because he's busy with 36 points in 33 games in the OHL because he would've missed the first half of the season).

    Adding Matthew Barry (11 points in 13 games to lead Holy Cross, will miss first half due to transfer), Brett Murray (3rd in the USHL in scoring with 44 in 36 games and Buffalo Sabres draft pick), and Ryan Savage (19 in 33 USHL games) to just replace Melnick up front adds a lot of size and scoring options.

    On the backend, 6'3" Alec Capstick who has 26 in 43 BCHL games, 6'4" Jack Clement from the USHL, Uula Ruikka (9 in 26 USHL games), and 6'3" Matt Kessel (9 in 34 USHL games, former #7 overall USHL draft pick) to replace Hutton (who hasn't played well lately) and River.

    And I think the goalie spot will be in safe hands when Larkin leaves with Ben Kraws.

    But all of that is because of new recruiting pipelines that didn't exist before the coaching changes. What did anyone honestly expect?

    Martin can fix his career by having a couple big years . 
    A coach can get a better job by winning at their current school.
