The Guardian confirmed Nasby is going, "will not return for the second half ". That is too bad whatever the reason, although the competition was stepping up this year on him. As for additions this Jacob Bundil? to PEI, ah here is the article...http://www.theguardian.pe.ca/index.cfm?sid=314984&sc=99

The UPEI Athletic Department needs to ask themselves if they plan to take their program seriously or allow the embarassing antics that were allowed to take place this season.

Players refusing to play for their Coach and Boycotting should never happen and it put the program in a tough spot. Now that the season is over those involved should be banished from the Island school hence screwing them out of eligibility to play CIS next season.The school holds the power now and those players need to pay the price of their antics so future teams dont pull the same thing when they dont like their Coach.

The program should start from scratch and do a thorough Head Coach search,with the current Coach eligible to apply.

AD Annear could have done this in October when the problem began be he neglected not to. Instead wanting to broker a meeting and have his Hockey coach bend a little on his expectations to move the Panthers back to the long lost days of glory. Annear didn't put a stop to it then and by all accounts he isn't prepared to do anything further. He lost a coach, who although maybe a little unorthadox a times, was praised by boosters, alumini, fans, and the community for making the Panthers important in the PEI hockey community again.
During his 4+ seasons at the helm, Taylor recruited players from all three CHL leagues and the CJAHL.
He increased scholarship money by 15 times the amount when he took over.
He was able to secure the Panthers there own customized dressing room, ( private stalls, staionary bikes, video games, ping pong table, big screen tv,courtesy of Joel Ward) and even painting the walls himself!
He raised the profile of ex-alumni such a Joel Ward and tapped into the alumni to move forward drawing many boosters back to support the program as many from the glory years 1985-1995, as the university alienated many of these powerful people.
He established the team's own year-end awards named after many of the prominent players of UPEI past, Shellington, Currie, Carragher, Little Mulligan etc.
He established an intense off-ice program and strength and conditioning coach.
He brought on board a nutrionist.
He added an academic advisor to support the players. The men's team has the highest academic standing of any varsity team the past 4 years.
He and his staff developed the Panther Hockey Academy, delivering skills camps to hundreds of Island players durign the past 3 years.
He partnered with Hockey PEI to devlop scholarships for up and coming players.
8 of his graduates have gone on to pro at some level.
He organized several new fundraising initiatives to increase funding outside of the university budget.
He had season tickets nearly double in his time.
He establish the annual NCAA swing, which resulted in many powerful hockey and life experiences for players and fans.
He worked more than full time for part-time pay!
He lead the Panthers to thier only playoff victory since 1996. ( sad stat)
In the end he walked away from the program not wanting to damage any of the steps forward he took, for the sake for a couple of big egos and an AD who is a puppet for University administration.
It is up to the Boosters, fans, alumni , and university and coaches, whether that be Forbie or not to continue to improve UPEI and continue Dylan's dream to deliver a championship to PEI hockey fans.

If Dylan is responsible for all of this, why did it come down the way it did? Something in his methods ticked off enough players that they would quit on him. Can't buy the notion that they were unhappy about ice-time or stuff like that. Players might not be happy, but they don't mutiny over stuff like that. There has to be something more deep-rooted for it to fall apart the way it did.

That's pretty much what happened to Charlie though, he made a few bad calls that some of the players weren't happy with (graduating seniors on top of it!) and they turned on him.

Remove the Interim

McPherson was handed the reigns through 2010-11 season announced today in The Guardian. Interim removed but nothing long term signed. Forbie did a fine job, I think he is a good enough coach, but those guys pretty much had to put up or shut up after what they did. I wonder how he'll recruit long term when his status is not assured

Yeah, saw that in The Guardian this morning. He wasn't a bad player, kind of unsung type, always sort of appeared suddenly on a PP or something, great multi role player.

I also saw some news on that as well. From a hockey perspective, Brock has had some incredible difficulties. For a defensive team, first they lose their primary piece in former Halifax Moosehead goalie Mark Yetmen, due to the pending sexual assault charges, and now they lose their leading scorer. From a broader perspective, an incident such as this obviously goes far beyond hockey. I wish only the best for his family, friends, teammates and those he was close to.

Goaltender Wayne Savage has left the Panthers to go pro in the CHL.

UPEI will be naming a replacement soon to back up Jhase Sniderman.

Randy Cameron and Matt Boyle, both Q grads, were announced recently, the story is on the UPEI website. Cameron could be quite a player, Moncton guys might know a lot more. Don't know much about Boyle. Both are Island kids, Cameron sort of the typical Island player.

Someone already posted about Wayne Savage departing for the CHL, in the The Guardian article McPherson is said to be lining up a replacement.

I watched Randy Cameron play at the Memorial Cup.
Nice player to watch, solid at both ends of the ice and good hockey sense.

Can anyone from the Island confirm or deny the Randy Cameron rumours? Is he still with UPEI or has he moved on? There is some traction gaining that he is at STU.

TAhings are just average with the hockey Panthers these days.
The team had a just fair recruiting year, Boyle wanted to play at home, so no big work there, Fraser wasn't being talked to by other schools, so an easy one, as for Guggenburger, well played on 3 teams in 4 years, that is never a good sign. Report form the team have him being an average goalie at best.
The team has a couple of players who played senior hockey on the Island last year, Jamie McInnis, and Kris MacDonald, a castoff form Acadia. Then he tried to convince Chris "the cancer" Doyle to stay at UPEI and not go to the OHL. Even Doyle told others UPEI was not a good situation and left for the "o".
Some memebers of the booster club are not impressed with some of coach MacPherson's dealings. He dropped the annual US-NCAA trip, dropped the summer and fall hockey skills clinics, partnered with Andrews Hockey, and will not play any ex-games at home ( witht he exemption of a cahirity game against alumni). Those boosters who were Dylan Taylor fans, have said these moves will set the team back. Taylor did a great deal of work to improve the image of UPEI hockey in the community. The same cannot be said for MacPherson.
The Randy Cameron situation did not help the team. Cameron was on teh ice practising with UPEI then left for STU. Players are split. Some say he had a poor attitude and didn't fit, others say the coach was building him up to be a saviour and then "bang" the ass fell out of the bag, leaving many to wonder what would come next.
Players are wondering who is leading things. Coach MacPherson misses 1 week a month for his other work. Leaving the team inthe hands of the two assistants. They don't like having to wait a week to speak with the coach on matters.
As anyone who follows UPEI sports should know don't expect AD Annear to step up and do anything about it.
From the look of their ex play, Look for them and STU to battle for the basement. The future is not so promising

They didn't look too too bad tonight,beat SMU 5-2 in Summerside, controlled the game from the outset, but I would have to agree with your assessment, it was a very sluggish affair, PEI appearing a little fresher. More on CIS Exhibition Thread

According to this: http://www.fearthefin.com/2011/9/22/...of-top-scorers he was reassigned from the San Jose to Worcester Camps yesterday, so he apparently isn't here just yet.
