There seem to be a lot of "predictions" of a BU/Cornell matchup in Providence, citing the "rivalry." I don't know, but I don't see where in this situation the fact that it's a rivalry would have much effect on attendance. If you're going to go to a regional to root for your team (especially if you are going to travel and stay for potentially two games), I don't think who you may be playing would be a big concern.
I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.
And remember it was just two years ago that #15 overall Providence got to play in Providence in #4 overall Miami's bracket.
So far, most of the college hockey media that have done projections have BU in Providence playing Penn State.
As for Quinn...is it acceptable to you to have the preseason #1 or #2 team in the country and end up stumbling at the end of every season?..If so good for you..I expect more...I expect a team to play with passion and heart for 60 minutes not just the last 10...I expect a team loaded with all this supposed skill to score more goals not rely on Oettinger every game...I expect Diffley and Switzer to get more games if for no other reason then to send a message when you don't play well....since you are such a stat guy Pickett...why don't you tell me what BU's record is with both Diffley and Switzer in at D not this two shifts at forward crap he has pulled on both of them ...and while you are at it tell how many goals game BU scores when they both play D vs When they don't....possession numbers?....%number of shots that get blocked....cmon superstat guy show me how much I don't know....sorry I don't need Twitter and the DFP to tell me who's good...anyone remember when Andren was a 2nd line guy destined for greatness...to bad he wasn't an NHL draft pick or he'd still be out there.

Sweet post christos
I was just thinking give quinn BCs roster and see what the results would have been. Scary thought.
Together - given how overrated Chuck is, can you put a stake in the ground and tell me when (if ever) you expect him to become an NHL regular? A team may love their draft pick, but if he is a liability on the ice, he ain't playing. So if he is as bad/overrated as you make him out to be, it would seem he has no shot of making the Bruins, at least for a couple years.
Because all the local prognosticators seem to be confident he'll be playing at least some of next season for the big club. I'm not saying I agree, just what they all seem to think.
BU Hockey: The trophy case is once again growing
Well, Mookie, Moy has us in Fargo playing the Fighting Sioux - I mean, Hawks, just as you originally predicted. Hope you're both wrong!!
Moy says: "Take a look at BU and Union swapping. Is there a benefit there? Not in my eyes."
Why not? Why do you bring the LOWER seeded team East and leave the HIGHER seeded team out West? Well, I'll tell you why. Because he probably looked at Friday's game and saw TWO (maybe part of a third, but not very impressive when Lowell filled 1/4 of the building) sections of BU fans and concluded that there wouldn't be a significant attendance boost with BU in Providence. That's pretty sobering. We need to start building back enthusiasm for this program...
