    At least in orono with red gendron in charge you never have to worry about losing in the title game or even showing up on those PWR predictor/you are the committee programs.

    Captain by committee next year. I am thinking Dudek, Brown, Fitzgerald and Kim could all be sporting letters.

    Loled

    Drew just keeps taking a beating

    Anyway, with ND leaving, pretty firm new big four now of Lowell, BC, BU and PC.

    What does discipline mean? Fun fact for the day:

    So it's no secret that BC has generally been a very NOT SMART team this year. They were penalized to high heaven and we can argue about each call but I will tell you first hand how not smart this BC team was.

    - I found an older thread (Thanks SteveF, yes he is still alive) where I had tracked the PPF and PPA. After some updating, the numbers show that this year's BC team was the worst BC team in the last 18 years in regards to differential of PPF and PPA. They were -44. That is over an extra PP a game for the opposition.

    - While there was an outlier here and there, the past 4 years have been a part of the bottom half of that 18 years, in fact, those 4 seasons are among the worst 8 seasons in differential out of the past 18 seasons. ZERO POSTSEASON TROPHIES.

    - Average differential has been -6.83 over the past 18 seasons but take out the last four and it was just -1.93 differential. So this 4 year stretch just increased that number by 254% in the wrong direction. Think about that.

They won 21 and progressed to the HE final for the first time since 2012 and somehow got a piece of the HE RS trophy in spite of the empty feeling of blowing a large lead and having a horrendous record vs the teams with which they shared it.
    Congratulation to the Eagles on their season. As you mentioned, with the massive turnover this was truly a very impressive season for the program. They gave Lowell all they could handle Saturday night. The team never gave up and worked hard until the end. I can still hear that shot off the crossbar with time running out.

    Well, this is an empty feeling with BC not in the tournament, but they have nobody to blame but themselves. Too many winnable points left on the table that bit them at the end.

    Hoping for better next year, but the situation on the back end is very concerning.

    Not surprised by this.

    There seemed to be a lot of untimely penalties, usually taken by the same individuals (who have been here for 4 years).

    I don't think many here realize how close BC was to getting in. While those have said it may have been only reversing one loss to a win or even a tie to a win or a loss to a tie the reality is that if just that one simple thing happened they not only would have been in but probably would have been a 3 seed as well passing about 3 or 4 teams in PWR. Hopefully they realize that next year and play every game the full 60 minutes.
