Rough start. Team hasn't been the same lately. Hopefully we can turn it around. Jerry is a God amongst hockey coaches and has the right to pick his successor (Cavanaugh).

Wait. Before we get carried away, it’s my understanding that this is a very young team that has already played a really tough schedule. There can’t be anything to complain about, right? The expectations are that this year is a part of the growing pains process with the fruit to come down the road. Am I close?

I thought last year was supposed to be the young rebuilding team. What the hell?

We played St. Cloud out there back to back. They're ranked #2. We played Denver here. They're the defending champs and top-ranked this season. We also played Providence twice on the road. They're ranked 6th. 5 games out of 9 against top 6 teams, so that's a tough early schedule.

The team is young. There are no seniors on the team that play (one is on the roster but he's there for depth, apparently). All of them left early to go pro. 6 frosh, 8 sophs. The team probably won't make the NCAAs, but will finish the year better than the start.

But the football and b-ball factories all have huge turnovers every year. The difference is they always recruit equally talented replacements. Some where, some how the BC coaching staff dropped the puck.

True, GE. I wouldn't be surprised if other coaches are using Jerry's age against him, trying to argue he'll retire while they're at BC, then what?

To the hockey experts - do we have a promising successor to York among his current assistant coaches or will we absolutely need to go outside?

Napoleon-
The heir apparent to York is Mike Cavanaugh. He was York’s right hand man for many years at BC, until he left a few years ago to be the head coach at UConn. BC hasn’t won a single postseason trophy since Cavanaugh left.
