Recruit Update

Kenny Gillespie – RW – Omaha Lancers (USHL)
3 GP / 0 G / 1 A / 1 Pts / 2 PIM / +1
Gillespie didn’t register any points in his one game for the Lancers over the weekend.  He’s still only playing about every other game for Omaha so far on the season and I’m not sure exactly why.

Shane Walsh – LW – Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL)
7 GP / 1 G / 1 A / 2 Pts / 0 PIM / -3
Walsh notched his first goal of the season in a 4-0 win over Muskegon.

There’s not too much else out there in the world of UMass hockey, so I’ll leave you with a couple links.

How often have you see a 7 foot,  Stanley Cup winning pink bunny?

The talk around Hockey East today was this column in BU’s student paper calling for Terrier Coach Jack Parker to step down.  Aw, poor BU faithful for having to go a whole 30 months without an NCAA championship due to Parker’s incompetence.

This is the only response I have for “Scoops” Mazurek:

    On another note sounds like from the coaches show last night that Toot intends to keep Syner,Hobbs and Pereira split up as a line. His reasoning was that in away games other coaches could match up a checking line and shut them down. My feeling there is that they are good enough to get their points anyways, don’t fix what isn’t broken.

      instead of breaking up top line…why not make two effective lines? Put Gracel, Sheary and Power together and let them develop some chemistry.

      • I agree. Obviously there are two different philosophies regarding lines. Assuming they click together, you put your most talented players on the top line and let them go out there and hope their talent can provide as much production as possible. It seems that Toot’s take is that this makes it too easy for other teams, especially those with talented defensive forwards, to match up their lines and shutdown that first line. So therefore he tries to balance the talent between the top two lines so other teams cannot cancel out all the offensive players the Minutemen have.

        While I understand and respect this viewpoint, it hasn’t seemed to have had much success at UMass. Too often UMass has found itself among the bottom teams in goal production despite some very skilled players. I think when you have a line that’s clicking as well as the HoPS line was, you just leave it alone. Throw it out there and let them do what they do and if they’re good enough to be stars at this level they’ll score despite the other team matching up their best defensive forwards. At the same time if recruiting is doing it’s job, you should have enough talent on that second line to score some goals too. And I think UMass has that talent in Gracel, Sheary and whoever the third forward who’s going to step up to play with them, be it a Power, LaRue, Tegeler, whoever.
