Things will turn around...they always do.

Frustrating, but with all these freshman, I suppose Cav has another year to show he can finally win. What else can we do?They play well. They do.
They're just horribly unlucky (look at some of their shooting percentages) and have the mental toughness of a six-year old.
The thing about it is, you are not getting a more qualified candidate than Cav was. No shot. Not with the AD in this bind and with these facilities.Frustrating, but with all these freshman, I suppose Cav has another year to show he can finally win. What else can we do?
re-emphasizing this before someone idiotically points out how improved UMass and UNH are with new coaches because UConn can't do that right now so stopThe thing about it is, you are not getting a more qualified candidate than Cav was. No shot. Not with the AD in this bind and with these facilities.
Truthfully, I can't blame anyone for thinking it. The entire basis of my disagreement is thinking they'd have no shot at a more qualified candidate.Yup and Cav should be on thin ice... (Sorry couldn't resist.)
With no viable on campus arena or practice facility there is zero chance of getting any coach worth a damn. The college coaching pool in hockey is as small as it gets.
The program needs to attract better depth. That is that is missing outside the odd superstar player but you don't need a Hobey winner to compete for championships.
The team cracks like their skates are made of clay because it lacks depth to go entire games/weekends without making mistakes.
I wasn't there yesterday, but did watch the 2-2 tie on Friday night. It was not pretty hockey. I thought that UNH must be pretty bad not to dominate our boys.Its amazing how often UConn players either just fall over or skate into one another.
How does that happen?!?!?! On the 2nd UNH goal, Newpower just FELL BACKWARDS IN HIS OWN ZONE UNDER NO PRESSURE!!!!
