    As for your prediction, it's a good thing that Brown's motto is "In Deo Speramus" because it's gonna take a whole lot of "speramus" for the Bears to win it all in 2013.

    Have to say I disagree on the rotation those years... in theory yeah would be nice to give the goalie a little rest... but at the same time I think it is safe to assume that the coaching staff is looking at what they see in practice and deciding what to do for games based on that. If you can't do it in practice, I sure don't think you can do it in games... I'm not sure that 4 or 5 games his frist year would have helped Bennett... i mean he had a whole season to improve once the job was his and never did (see Parker Milner for an example of someone who started off bad but improved all year). Also dont confuse injury with fatigue. Curry tore his labrum (an acute injury... not so much fatigue over the course of the year).

    Not to get into a John Curry vs. Cory Schneider debate; but I think Curry's emergence, early in the 2004-05 season was so important to BU's program. Think about what was going on there at that time:

    1999: Finish 5th in Hockey East
    2001: Finish 6th in Hockey East
    2003: Finish 5th in Hockey East
    2004: Finish 8th in Hockey East

    Being on the road, in the Hockey East quarterfinals in four of six years, was not good for BU.

    They start out that season losing to Miami 5-1 (down 5-0 at one point, with Stephan Siwiec in net) and losing to Michigan 7-2 (down 7-0 at one point, with Karson Gillespie giving up 7 goals on 19 shots). If Curry had not taken the job, who knows where that season may have gone to. It's not like they were an offensive powerhouse that could outscore other teams-- David Van der Gulik was their leading scorer with 31 points.

    Again, I'm not trying to debate, just making a point that Curry's emergence was enormous for that program. Not only for the years he was starting, but for the guys they recruited for the 2008-09 team. Maybe some of those kids have second thoughts about going to BU if they continued the trend of being on the road for HE quarterfinal series'. No way to ever quantify this, just something to think about.

    If you're specifically referring to this year, Milner actually started off pretty well, went through a bad stretch and then went on a run unmatched by any BC goalie I've ever seen.

    That season may have stunk, but the back to back weekends of beating UNH in OT just to get into the playoffs (at the Whit no less) and then stunning the Eagles with the #8 vs. #1 win (Eric Thomassian with a huge goal in game three), made for some pretty awesome memories. I think that was the year we lost 1-0 to Howard and the Black Bears in the semis, right?

    i always recall parker talking about the decision whom to start that 3rd game of the season. after practice he asked gera if curry was in fact the guy to go to for that game. gera said, "i'm not sure if he's a #1 goalie, but he is our #1 goalie".

    I always felt he saved the program as we know it (such as it is). As you said, those teams couldn't score. Somebody reaching 30 points was a good year. Had Stephan Siwiec-Tapp been the starter, it would have been yet another losing season. Furthermore, they would have gotten smoked in the Agganis opener (which was like a one goal win I thought vs Minny). Worse, the following year without Curry there was no, and I mean no way they win the HE title. The second half of that game was a shooting gallery in our end until the freshman line broke in the other way on Schnieder I believe who'd fallen asleep at that point from lack of play in his end. So you'd have a decade without a HE title, no hope for improvement and most likely recruits and current players bailing on the program. All the while Parker would be oblivious that there was a problem as he settled in for another 20 years of coaching. The BU program owes a bid debt of gratitude to Curry. Its too bad he didn't come along one year later and been able to win the championship in 09.

    Kevin Shattenkirk was a BEAST last night. Just sayin'.

    Of course this made me more angry thinking about what a complete waste the 2009-2010 season was. Based on talent, that should have been a Frozen Four team and they didn't even make the tournament. Disgusting.

    Sounds like you're talking about the 2008-2009 BC team. In the end, sometimes you just can't tell how much of an impact losing certain players will be. You guys lost a **** ton of productive players after the national title. I wasn't surprised by your 2009-2010 season whatsoever.

    That team also was laden with injuries left and right, in addition to the lackadaisical attitude of some. I don't think we had a full roster for more than a handful of games that season.

    In their defense they were hung over before most games. Not like the coaching staff could do anything about that...
