Not surprised by this one bit...hopefully we don't finish there but I give Cav some time (and a new on campus barn) and we will be picked in the upper 1/3

*shrug* We have two more wins against Hockey East than I thought we would at this point. I think all things considered we probably should be picked last... but I think we're ahead of schedule. :)

Looks like UMess' pre-season ranking is saved by the year-one Huskies, but how great will it to finish higher? When I saw MC, first thought was Malden Catholic. Let's beat our Merrimack as well.

1) I think the coaches have us last as well.

2) Leaman has done a hell of a job at Providence - big opportunity for that program this year.

Unless we have lights out goaltending that should be the expectation. The benefit of playing in a tough league is that we might be able to catch some of the top half coming off other emotional games and maybe steal a couple. Looking forward to seeing young guys logging icetime but there are going to be some tough nights. Still should be a fun season with a great selection of games around the state.

Where UCONN finishes will be dictated by goaltending and how the freshman fare over the length of the season. Cav brought these kids in to build the "foundation" of this program so they should do ok this year. If UCONN is competitive night in and night out, good things will happen.

No arguments -Leaman's been a home run for Providence.

It's great for New England hockey and by extension, hopefully, UConn.

I am, at best, a casual hockey fan. When my sis went to UMO I followed the Black Bears, and when I was was living outside of Detroit I liked to watch Red Wings games. But this HE thing has got me excited. Just seeing the list of local and regional rivalries is really great. To have the major state public schools from (nearly) all of the New England states in the same league is awsome (what the hell is wrong with RI?)! So sad this can never be in big time football. Looking forward to seeing some games. GO DOGS!

Hockey East is the most fun league in all of collegiate sports, and it's an awesome league to be a part of. It's really a neighborhood league. Put an arena on campus and build a competitive program, and this will be one of the most enjoyable experiences you could have as a UConn fan.
