[QUOTE=Sean Pickett;6468038]UML's top 6 D scored 27 goals with a 3.3% scoring percentage. Denver's top 6 D scored 15 goals with a 1.9% scoring percentage. BU's top 6 D scored 21 goals with a 3.0% scoring percentage.
What teams do you say had one of the top D corps in the nation if not UML and DU?
First of all contributing to the offense isn't just goals....UML D men have contributed 119 points this year...BC 108...Providence 102...Notre Dame 100.........BU 88....hard to believe with all that NHL skill

Watch BU Hockey highlights
People that are bashing Quinn should think back to the dumpster fire program that he took over four years ago. The program had just missed the tournament for the 3rd time in 4 seasons, was coming off the task force investigation/sex scandals and had a horrendous talent level. (Take a look at the roster the year Quinn took over. Dalton Macafee and TJ Ryan were regular defensemen.)
Since then, Quinn has taken the team to three straight tournaments, become best recruiting program in the country and quickly caught/past BC in recruiting and on ice.
Yes, his in game coaching has been suspect at time and I wish he would start getting more out of CM and JG, but the biggest flaw on this team is scoring depth. Particularly, scoring from upperclassmen forwards. Everyone would agree that to win championships you need a few upperclassmen scorers to balance things. The fact that this team has none is more of a reflection on the talent pool/recruiting that he was left with. I know that he technically recruited some of these Jr and Sr frwrds, but he was somewhat handcuffed because he was just hired.
Yes, I know Eichel helped speed up the rebuilding process.
Recruiting edge over BC, yes. On ice? This year but not last year. Quinn and his staff are great recruiters. No question about it. I can understand people being frustrated by his coaching though. You are BU. you *should* make the tourney just about every year.
Norm Bazin. Just cannot relate to kids. BU has plenty of talent and fun to watch just not a team with a coach

A- coach doesn't like Bellows
B. His play was poor early in season
Is it now not time to put Bellows and Keller together
They were dynamite together last year
He has even tried no goals Cloonan with Keller
Starting the season we returned few goals from last year
O'Regan's strong year in AHL shows how valuable he was
With Quinn as their coach. Would lose
To the Generals
Good luck in the NCAAs. Tough draw but at least you're in. Someone always surprises to come out of one bracket, why not BU? (I'm not actually asking that, because I know BUTogether will have some 'answers')
Can't believe I have more confidence in BU's chances to beat UND than most on this board.
Would we agree that if this game were at a true neutral site that BU would have an edge over ND? By any measurement, BU is the superior team, though I think ND is on the upswing.
The true threat is Duluth. I think BU has more problems with that team.
Last 10 games:
BU 5-4-1 incl. against 6 top-15 ranked teams, plus 2 against Northeastern that was playing like a ranked team in the second half.
ND 6-1 against 4 top-15 ranked teams, plus 2 against #20 Omaha.
Almost same record with SOS edge to BU in last ten.
