    I agree, Maine will play Merrimack tough and may squeak out a win or tie. I see their only chance for success tonight and will probably lose tomorrow night. It would be a significant accomplishment for this team to win a conference road game.

Offense is still a concern (they only have 4 more goals than ME in league play), but they have been good at shutting down the opposition, and they are generally pretty tough at home.
    Again it will come down to Goaltending, Low scoring games with Merrimack choking Maine's skating game...clogging the middle. Maine needs to dump and chase...AND stay out of the box with no more then 4 per game to have a chance. Merrimack sweeps 4-2 and 3-2. Road woes continue for Maine.

    Id take three respectable lines with a solid 4th. All playing good d with a solid goalie (with penalty disciplined) (disciplined power play and penalty kill as well) any day over 2 or 3 highly recruited individuals. Too much to ask for i suppose.

    Very poor recruiter my ***. He screwed it up at the end but lets at least be intellectually honest about it.
    I agree with this, he lacked a goalie and then he lacked talent. He had a NC in his hand in 02 and thats what got him the job. But lets face it Sue Tyler blew it in 02 by not having a natl search and just handing him the job.

    Red finally got some talent in this year. Pearson Shea and Fossier are all good, Holway is good. If he gets a goalie to compete with McGovern in the next class and some more offense the team could turn slowly. Its going to take to to end of his contract to see real results if there are going to be any
    I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

    Why does Michel get so many penalties

    Off the top of my head, I'd say because Red can't really afford to bench anybody at this juncture.

    In Byron's defense, I think it was a dive from the Merrimack player.

    Michel takes the most penalties because he is on the ice more than anyone else and he usually is going up against the other team's best players.

    Well, how many times do we see this. Give up a nice lead in last 5 minutes.

    Lack of ability to get the puck out of defensive zone, is once more the killer.

    He's not as good as Gustav Nyquist or Devin Shore. Doesn't mean he's bad.

    He's got more goals than Marty Kariya and Michel Leveille had as freshmen too. Guess what, he ain't as good as them either.

    Low Point again...up 3-0...lead goes away and then OT slaps Maine in the face.

    Maine's biggest problem right now is they just don't know how to win.

    Yes. Second consecutive game that Maine gives up the lead and allows 4 unanswered goals.

    That statement is definitely arguable. Maine has had a cupcake OOC schedule this year, and the results, vs. last year, won't be any better in any real sense after you factor-in the relative SOS disparity.
