      • I don’t understand Carvel leaving St Lawrence for Amherst. Further, if UMass Amherst can poach a coach from the ECAC, why has Hockey East struggled to replace Notre Dame?

        • Whole life spent at SLU….grass is greener…but there is no grass at Amherst…last place in HE = better than 4th in ECAC? Anyways, they’ll get a great education….at UMASS?!?! Carvel = no Norm Bazin…..but that’s the gamble….
