    Totally agree...I think he needs to take a long look at his support staff (S&C, nutrition, etc...). One thing we know is this...he will definitely not be shy to ask for something he needs to win. And outside of blinking his eyes and giving him a new encamps facility/arena Warde will give it to him.

    Bryan Nelson released from his BCHL team, West Kelowna Warriors.

    Odd to be released mid-season after playing in 34 of the team's 40 games.

    Could he be a second half addition?

    Maybe...Kunnas scratched today with an injury...has Segalla played since they have started the 2nd half of he season?

    Kunnas might have suffered a concussion after the hit he took on Tuesday.

    Segalla has not played since his suspension was lifted. I do not think Cavanaugh is Segalla's biggest fan right now.

    It has been a totally wasted year for him so far. He has only played in 8 games this season, suspended 1 game for spearing, and suspended 4 for violation of team rules.

    Maybe Nelson is going to take Segalla's roster spot

    He's still on the team and traveling with them so he is not off the team.

    Not a good sign - The USPHL is a big downgrade from the BCHL (which is not known to be a defensive league more offensive flowing with very little defense being played). Players usually play in the USPHL when they can't make a USHL Team (which is probably the best amateur development league), BCHL or North American Hockey League Team. I just got the skinny on all the leagues from a scout I bumped into at one of the WolfPack games.

    There are actually quite a few USPHL kids in Hockey East now. BC is loaded with them. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    The only thing he is worried about is how to pen his next post slamming Cav, his coaching, his recruiting or his staff.

    When your ranked 43rd out of 60 in the nation in D1 Hockey with 4 wins coming against Arizona State and Huntsville/Alabama everyone is open to be second guessed,challenged,questioned and criticized from the head coach down to the bus driver.

    At least on the football board they include the AD too. He's the ONLY one you forgot. @hockeyfan44 what did you do when UConn was in the AHA and Marshall was the head coach?

    To be honest I thought about putting the big guy on the list but if it wasn't for him UCONN wouldn't be in Hockey East today. Plus Warde is real and I like that about him. Did I think he could of made a better decision with his 1st HE coach in Storrs? Absolutely. Did Marshall drive us crazy? At times yes. Is it more enjoyable watching UCONN Hockey at XL Center against the BU BC, ND's of the world compared to watching them play Sacred Heart in Storrs? Most definitely Yes.

    I asked the play by play guy of West Kelowna why Nelson left. He was told it was because he wanted to be closer to home. They are playing with only six defensemen now and an open roster spot.

    The USPHL is not even close to being the BCHL or USHL. But good players do come out of the USPHL.

    Keep an eye on forward Johnny McDermott from Westminster Prep in Simsbury. Has decommited from BU. BU wanted him to push back his enrollment to 2017-18.

    UConn was in his final group of schools along with BC, Providence, and Union prior to his commitment.

    The forward would be a big pickup for next season for UConn.

    Where'd you see he decommitted? No one in BU circles has reported this. There was some talk from Jeff Cox when Amonte committed recently that a prep recruit may be asked to push a year, but that was later debunked as not a decided fact and Amonte may be the one to push.

    Any kids at Malden Catholic or Pope Francis (formerly Cathedral in Springfield) heading or looking into UConn? Went with my buddy to watch his nephew, a defenseman at PF and heading to VMI (hoping still for Annapolis) to play and man there were some skilled kids int his game. Battle of #2 and #4 in the state of Mass and it was a beauty. #4 PF with a mild upset of MC by a 3-2 score. Even't been to a HS gam in years and I must say this was very fun to watch the the skill sets were much higher than I envisioned. 2-3 lines deep of very nice skaters and passers etc etc....will go again!
