Even the battle of the Hill at this point means nothing, so in university Hockey this newer facility means a lot to be back on a even playing field with the other AUS teams in that regard.

The Last players I remember for STU to cause any fear when they were out on the Ice by being a constant scoring threat, were Kyle McAllister and Justin Bowers. As far as Defenseman go probably Nick Theriault cause of his Shot and the defenseman I cant think of his name of hand that played for the 07 Canada university games team???
Your points about the new arena are exactly what I was thinking. The LBR (as much as I love the old barns) may have been viewed as a bush league facility by potential recruits.

Ian Turner is I believe the defenceman you are referring to.
