Easily the most overrated team in the country.
That first Denver goal. Woof. How does he let that go in?
So I hesitate to "start in" this early in the season, but just as a "general philosophy" comment (similar to the Red Sox sabermetrics philosophy, like why do you take 16 out of 19 first pitch strikes against a guy who has given up most of his home runs on the first pitch): "If" it is their methodology that they have decided to go the "we'll load up on draft picks" approach, I just think that "balance" should be kept in mind. I mentioned this last year as well. It's great to have the "#1 recruiting class" et al and all the talent that goes with that. I just don't think they should lose sight of the significance of having role players. In other words, you need guys that AREN'T going to the NHL to provide CONTINUITY from one year to the next. People that will stay four years and be a "link" between the old and the new. Because all these draft picks are going to be gone after one, or at the most, two years. And if they're thinking "Well, we have enough talent to win almost every year if we keep getting the 'best' players," I think they will find that they will be sadly mistaken. Did we all forget that they won in 2009 because of the leadership of FOUR seniors (that team had NINE juniors and seniors)?
Looked like he had come out anticipating a pass into the slot and when he realized instead that Borgstrom was not going to pass he tried to get back to cover the near post and just didn't get there in time. Probably the same on Bellows' goal, so they kind of cancelled each other out.

The kids are good, but they seem to be young enough that a 'big long road trip to high altitude' got to them enough to pull them off their game. The biggest hurt this will be is to the OOC effect it has in the pairwise. I think these guys will come together in the season well enough to handle long trips soon enough.
You guys didn't bring in 9 Eichel's, you brought in 9 frosh. Give them a few years to develop.
Oh wait. They'll be gone after one. Sucks to BU.

It's easy to see the talent at BU and if they gel they're clearly still a favorite this season. They looked notably better than BC did last weekend in beating DU...
Not good for the pairwise.

The problem is Hockey East has been terrible this year out of conference.
