This is a make or break year for the Hawks. A couple of close games they need to prove they can convert some of those into Ws. Hope this is their breakout year.

They lost two starters on defense and one starter at midfield. Returning on defense is AE 2nd team defender Connor Flynn and Ben Knapton (LSM) and AE 2nd Team goalie Scott Bement. The offense returns its top score's and AE All-Rookie team players Genik (24-10), Compitello (20-13) and Bender (18-11). As well as AE 2nd team face-off specialist Fallon.

I like this team and see them definately in the AE tournament this season. I think Bement in goal keeps them in most games and you have to love Competello.
So, I guess you never ran into a bus driver before?!

I wouldn't be surprised to see Hartford in the AE tourney this coming year. UVM and Bing will have something to say about that though.
Bing graduated their goalie and FO guy (Wioncek), but have a young team and a good crop of recruits including Matt Springer (Hamburg, N.Y.). I think a lot may depend on how the Herkimer transfer in nets pans out.
Vermont has a strong young team too. lost the top scorer and goalie, but return a good core led by Worley (#2) and Lichtfuss (#3 in scoring).

I think Hartford-finally- has a long term plan and is moving in the right direction. Making the tourney next year though is certianly not a given yet.

Expect a dog fight for that final spot in 2010 behind Stony Brook, UMBC and Albany (in no particular order).

From the Albany area they scored two big recruits in Franze and Nunamacher. Hopefully one of thee two kids if not both come in and make an immediate impact. Hartford also is returning there starting attack of Bearse, Genik, and Compitello. Defensively is a ? only returning two starters in Knapton and Flynn. Who will replace Guavera and Liberti? The goal is the strength with returning rookie of the year Bement. Face-offs return as well with second team all conference Fallon.

In the midfield what can we expect with the addition of those two all-americans?


I see hartford making the AE playoffs. They return too much not to be a threat this year.

Other than the Brook and Hawks, there is turnover in the Cage and other important positions. The Hawk's, Cat's and Bearcats always play each other at the end of the AE season and for the past 2-years, whoever won these games moved to the AET. For the past 2-years, the Hawks would have made the AET if they had won the last game of their regular season. Same for the Cats

I think this whole post is right on- Hartford's gonna stun someone this year. Maybe 2 teams.

AE tourney is looking more likely.

After the first five games starting with UMass on the road, we should know a lot about this team. I see they play Siena at Hofstra, another team on the rise that has had a little more success to this point. Depending on SB's schedule, this is a game on March 6th I'd love to see. It's going to be a war.

Yes, let's keep the negativity going. That'll help.

A maturing team and from what I hear some good additions in the midfield will have this team improving their record this year. Many close games could have gone the other way last year including the Bing game that I thought may have been their toughest loss since they played very hard on the road and had just gotten a taste for winning. This year I expect they will close out some of those close games better. Hoping that they will be the best conditioned team on the field to take that piece out of the way. Looking forward to the CT Cup to see what the new team configuration may be.

Yes that's true if you want to look at the past and assume nothing is changing. I guess I prefer the glass-half-full view but people are certainly entitled to their opinion. Makes for lively debate.

What do you think about the recruits? Big class. The coaches have been busy. Lots of defenders (6) and LSM(2). I heard Lake from Oregon is good. The Middie from Nisky has a rocket for a shot. Sounds like Ceme is a good athlete - is this the kid from the same school as Banks at UA? Can anyone post a roster with numbers for the scrimmage this weekend?
