Why Your Team Sucks- UConn

This is part 5 of an 11 part series on the bad teams in Hockey East(Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4)

Your Team: Uconn Huskies
2015-2016 record: 11-21-4(6-12-4)
Your outlook: Better than the four previously mentioned teams but still not a serious contender. It really is amazing how top heavy of a roster former BC assistant coach Cavanuagh has assembled down in Storrs. There are literally four good players on the entire roster. Actually, it is quite believable if you take a look at BC's roster. Letunov fell into his lap when his academics became an issue everywhere else. They still have little to no depth throughout the roster despite having average goaltending and two 30+ point scorers last season. They should be better but they won't be because their assistant coach(Joe Pereira) is 10X the coach that their head coach is and ever will be.


The Huskies look to improve on their poor campaign from a year ago where they were the real wildcard in Hockey East. They weren't a wildcard in a good way but more so in a they could lose to anyone in the country any given night(Alabama Huntsville, UMass, UVM) but also beat anyone in the country on any given night as well(BU). They started this year off strong sweeping Huntsville at home like they should have but we will see when Cavanaugh's lack of actualy coaching ability catches up with them.
