Although I still say (and I know it's a broken record - for those of you who don't know what a "record" is, it's like a CD only it's vinyl and is played on a record player with a stylus ) they need more "older" leadership. You can't win with an "all-star" team. There aren't enough pucks to go around and by nature "great" players tend to want to dominate and not become "role players." After four years of this, one would think he would start to understand and "adjust" his recruiting strategy. So I'm not putting it ALL on the coaching at this point. I would like to see a team that better reflects the "balance" of a Lowell, or a Denver (or even a Mankato or Providence) before I make that evaluation.

    Cassettes as well.

    And there's a Tkachuk, Amonte, and Krys on the Terriers. It's deja vu all over again!

    McDermott, playing for Tri City in the USHL, has 3 assists in 7 games. BU has four NTDP U18 forwards (Farabee, Wise, Weiss, DeBoer) coming next year and also could bring in Matt Quercia (Sioux Falls) if another big body is needed. McDermott tweeted:
    Thanks @TerrierHockey for an unforgettable experience. Excited to continue my college hockey career at Providence College. #friars

    Unfortunate could have been a 4 year role player...to many all stars next year...always admired BU had local talent...those days past too. Going to be difficult to coach 18 all stars

    1. Johnny McDermott is not local.

    2. Any successful teams will take the best talent they can get wherever they come from. The days of BU/BC having a ton of MA players are over. Just the reality of modern NCAA Hockey.

    3. Multiple 3/4 year players in both of the last two classes. Quinn is learning and seems to be tweaking the recruiting to include more of these players.

    I stand corrected...although Minn, Wisc, Denver...mostly regional with some Canadians...thought BU mostly National Development players from all over USA...good luck plenty of talent. Still like those old BU teams with regional talent from NE

    Agreed. For the most part, it is unrealistic though. BU's 2015 Frozen Four team starting line-up had 4 of the 6 from Massachusetts.

    Perhaps they'll tune in to the PC game and learn all they'll need to know in order to deal with the PCC (Pampered Children on the Commonwealth) on Saturday night.

    Did you bother to look at those rosters? DU has four players from Colorado, UW has six players from Wisconsin.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    We were much better on the forecheck and in our own zone, but our offense and the power play are really bad.

    Where's BUTogether? His favorite punching bag had a hell of a night.
