Then I ordered extra FB tickets and never got them, again they didn't know why, called two different times on that issue and low and behold the tickets showed up 3 days later....but not because they re-did them...oh no they said they didn't....but checking the Postage date and it was sent out the second time I called...trust me I hate to be #issed off towards them....but many-many question marks with that outfit. AND that goes with there processing fee's...my Hockey and Football season tickets were charged $10.....while my other FB extra tickets were charged a $6 processing fee. So I do have many issue's on how they run there "BUSINESS" and it is a Business.
    if its the tickets offices fault and this is an example of how the ADs office runs, guess you know why the hockey team isn't performing.

    Made the trip to Orono today and spoke with a few in charge of tickets, got the scoop on what happens with the tickets that are sent out to you and I....they leave the Ticket Office and go to the University Mail Office, from there they get picked up and go over to Hamden, from there they go to Portland, and then they are sent to where ever they are ADDRESSED to, like say Kingfield, Maine...Houlton, Maine...Waterville, Maine...Boston, MA. ....etc. ....so it's quite a full circle these tickets go through. So in a way I was wrong in directing my disgust @ the Ticket Office.....but at the same time what is going on that these tickets need to go trough these 4 places before they even settle into your Post Office Box....wow and at the same time NOT SURPRISED with out USPS. I was given my 3 tickets for Sundays game and was told to wait and see if I ever get my Season Ticket Package this up coming week, if not then I have to go to the Ticket Office this coming Friday and get a whole set of NEW SEASON TICKETS. Trust me I am NOT making this up....

    Still the fault of the ticket office. They should have been sent out a month ago.

    I understand that point as they say over and over the last few years that the tickets will be sent out 2 weeks before the first home game.

    I ordered some individual games on a weekend and had the tickets by middle of week The big issue this year was waiting for the ticket stock that had the players pictures on them. The ADs office swears thats a huge promotional thing, that benefits the season ticket holders and the student athletes. I say who gives a _____ about pictures on tickets. I'm sure some folks will collect them, scrap book them etc

    We'll see what happens in a few hours, who the captains are and what the young guys look like. I'm not turning off the Pats game to see though

    No kidding. Back in the day the tickets never had anything fancy on them and no one cared. I'm sure some expert from away convinced them how important the pictures were.

    The prices for today's game are completely insane. If anyone pays $50 for a ticket to the game they need serious help.

    Tralmaks looks good also, is Robbins playing? Now lets see what Swayman looks like

    Nope. Him, Smith, and Holway are all missing. Maybe they're suspended? Hopefully none of them are hurt. Some of the turnovers were careless but overall I thought Maine played decent enough. Need to do a better job finishing in front.

    Exhibition win, whoopie doo, better than losing like last year though Thought Swayman looked good, Tralmak, Doherty also. Need a D1 team before one can tell much but I like what I saw. Couple of the freshman D can shoot.

    We finally have some actual hockey to talk about!

    Very impressed with Tralmaks, Binner, Westerlund and Keeper among the incoming crop. Kept thinking Tralmaks was going to get on the board as he was creating a ton of chances. Binner made an excellent pass on that first goal by Holesinsky and looked very sound in all three zones. Westerlund was around the net and with his size and skill should be a menace all season for opposing. Not sure how much PP ice time they will give Keeper but he looked like a natural PP QB on the blueline.

    A couple stupid penalties (Tiru and Perez) gave Acadia unnecessary PP's which better teams will kill Maine with if they continue but Maine was pretty disciplined overall in what was a very chippy game.

    Swayman faced a lot more pucks than Bubba but showed why he was drafted. Good reflexes and very flexible, he had to make some very tough saves on defensive lapses and his only goal came on a cross ice pass on the PK.

    Overall they dominated the puck battles for 2.5 periods before Acadia got a little life later in the third. The size of this team makes me think they will win plenty of battles and I can't see them finishing last in Hockey East.

    Really like the Westerlund, Shea, Fossier line. Shea is much more impactful playing up the middle and Fossier back to his more comfortable RW along with the power and sniper ability of Westerlund could provide for a lot of production. Doherty Holesinsky and Papparlardo line was quite impressive as well. Doherty was an animal from the get go. Great to see defensemen who can play defense. Binner comes as billed, shut down, and can skate the puck through the zone. Will be fun to watch this team come together. I really wish NCAA allowed an extra week of team practices prior to start of the season. A big 4 points on the line next week. Will be interesting to see the line formations and how the team plays when the games count. Glad to see Pearson with the C, he is the real deal, and hoping he is partnered with Tralmaks all year.

    Listening to the pre-game and they didn't mention any suspensions...they did say that any minor injury's that Maine would hold out a player as it being a Exhibition game.
