The advantage of playing in the AUS is that teams push you every night, which better prepares you for the University Cup. UNB needs to get much better on the powerplay. It stinks right now, and is a momentum killer. This is not last year's team, and it really shows when you compare "finish". V-Reds (especially Boland) are missing tons of opportunities to complete plays for goals. I am sure Coach MacDougall will be looking for the next Clapperton (or Maillet if they are out there) over Christmas to firm up the offense. Defense is pretty solid, but we saw in the SMU and Acadia games that they can be guilty of missing assignments at time. On a positive note, there is lots of potential if coaching can improve the newbies' play.
