1. It doesn't matter who the coach of that team is there will be people coming on here talking about how the coaching didn't work. Either, not good enough, not good systems, not the right system for these guys or even if they got the best coach in the history of hockey it would be, this coach is too good and knows too much for these guys and they just don't get him. ALWAYS easy to point fingers.
2. Moving up to D1 wouldn't be a bad move at all. They are playing in the toughest region in the country and would actually have as good of a chance at making it to D1 nationals next season as it would be to make it to D2 nationals.
3.Comparing them moving up to SLU and their problems. Not even a comparable comparison. If you go to a school that is as expensive as SLU you usually WANT to go there. MSU is a great call for the player from MO that played Jr.'s and doesn't really care to play at a small D3 school in sub zero weather in Minnesota. There are A LOT of good players in the state of MO. Some of them would choose a state school with in state tuition and be able to still play competetive hockey in front of a good crowd.
4. Kids moving up or down. Some kids will choose to move up, some won't. GET OVER IT. It is what it is. That horse is dead, so quit kicking it.
This forum has been created with the purpose to constructively discuss college club hockey. We encourage you to freely discuss any topic you wish, with the caveat that you keep the discourse within the bounds of good taste.

Our intent is to build up and promote college club hockey and its teams. We need to work together and support each other to make this happen. We already have enough critics of club hockey. Let's do our best to keep things amiable on this forum, as not to give them any ammunition.
Best of luck to ALL teams!
