    Can you imagine a player like Vesey coming to the bench after even just one shift of floating around the zones not back checking with Walsh behind the bench? Red needs to hold that behavior accountable and set good habits for the younger players. Creating a culture of hard work can help bridge the gap of having lesser talent, but we haven't seen that ability from this staff yet.

    Shawn's teams always had four lines though. It's hard when you're going out every other shift. The depth of this year's team I am excited about more than anything else. Not to beat up on old friend Timmy, but after a few years Maine was pretty weak on the third and fourth lines. For Maine to be successful they are going to have to be deep where we're likely not going to have the high end talent of some of the other teams.

    To be fair I can't remember the last time Maine had a team with a truly solid bottom six. 2005? 2006? It's been a while.

    Yeah, that's around what I'm thinking as well. It's just as bad on defense. 2002 was the last time Maine had a good group there. Hopefully this year we see major improvements with both groups.

    I watched the Out of the Woods documentary on Youtube a few months ago for nostalgia's sake. It's amazing how many times Shawn benched the Ferraros for defensive lapses.

    AND that in turn goes back to Gendron, he talks and never does...especially when they get penalty's while on the power-play/ on the offensive side of the game....senseless charging and stick penalty's....and the one every or almost every other game penalty of too many men on the ice. Gendron needs to be accountable also, along with his Assistants.

    Agree. Sucks they lost this weeks game and couldnt find a replacement. Rookie QB needs game reps.

    Vesey has been benched or at least he didn't suit up. I thought they were coaches decisions?

    Is something happening in Bangor next weekend? I had no trouble booking hotels for the 20th or 27th but prices are 30% higher for the 6th if rooms are available at all.

    Prices go up and down each month that I have noticed in my bookings the last three years. Supply and Demand.

    It all starts with Goaltending....even on a team that needs everything at this present time.

    Well Friday evening and still no season tickets....quite something....have called and called and they {Ticket Office} can't understand or figure where they are....and the kicker is these tickets were mailed out last Friday Sept. 22nd....spoke to a few of my old rink hockey friends and they also have no season tickets and they live 5 and 6 miles from the Famed Alfond Arena and Ticket Office..Just shows the POOR STATE this Sports ticket department is in, funny how they can get your money and donation fee's and have no problem. Well just wondering if others have experience this situation of not getting there season tickets and then getting the blah-blah talk.

    Assuming they went out the 22nd, how is that the ticket offices fault? Isn't your beef with the US post office?

    They probably didn't send them out or had some sort of mix up.

    With many people in the area and beyond miles away makes me wonder how its the US Postal fault...question is the Ticket Office say they sent them out, but did they? Why do I say that is because they told me that they sent my FB renewal form out, which I never got and was lucky enough to call them the day of the deadline to re-up my seats. 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.
