    No, no, no. It was the hypocrisy of one particular BU poster (doesn't post a lot anymore, prefers twitter). Guy loves criticizing BC for this but makes all sorts of excuses when BU does it).

    I certainly don't love cutting players but it happens at every level of sports.

    Honest question, and I only post it on this thread versus others due to timing - What are the differences between making cuts and the scholarship fiasco of the Cedorchuk/Milbury transition? Is it that the "cuts" are likely to players that hadn't been promised a scholarship? Has there been a change over the years in how scholarships are handed out in terms of number of years, full vs. partial, etc.? BU has certainly said goodbye to some players who were likely to not get playing time anyway (at least a handful from the last couple years of Parker recruiting bumped by the higher caliber recruits that followed Quinn's arrival). My thought is that most of those players weren't getting scholarships, or at least not full ones, but I really don't know.

    Tough to tell without knowing who is getting what. So many ways you can divvy it up, I have a headache just thinking about it.

    BC still is working out of the recruiting situation caused by so much talent leaving after the 2016 season. With no forwards leaving and four coming in this year, something had to give. BC has struggled to score. Jeff Cox reported earlier that Casey Carreau had been asked to return to Junior Hockey for a year. If you look at BC's stats from last year all you have to do is start at the bottom and work up. That will tell you which players have to be most concerned about being cut. Kevin Lohan is the only defenseman lost, Ben Finkelstein replaces him. With the scholarship crunch, does BC have enough money to bring in Adam Samuelsson this year without cutting a defenseman? The numbers crunch at Forward for the following season is real too. Say you lose Brown/Dudek/Wahlstrom. There are 4 or 5 forwards committed and that's without Carreau returning. This round of cuts won't resolve BC's roster issue.

    The differences? First case was created by one Coach and handed to another Coach to clean up. Second case is created by situations beyond the Coach's control. I don't think what the Players had been offered is part of the issue regarding cuts. Just like at BU, players that are not expected to get much playing time are likely to be the ones affected.

    They have right number of dmen, so I would be surprised if one gets cut.
