The problem with a varsity hockey program is (as with every sport at MUN) money. We could most likely put a more competitive hockey program together than basketball but the cost for hockey is substantially higher than basketball unfortunately - ice time, equipment, travel expenses for larger rosters etc. If Memorial Athletics had more money available and could put it into the basketball program, it would have a reasonable chance to compete.

I wonder if we were to slowly phase out the Mens Basketball program and invest more time and money into a Hockey program, would we see more success at the AUS/CIS levels? We have many NFLD'ers playing at other universities and many more talented players at MUN who have no Varsity team. I really think a Mens Hockey prgram would fill more seats and eventually raise a few banners at Field House.
