    Hopefully Oettinger stops worrying about making the Olympic team and settles down and if not then maybe Max emerges as a solid alternative.
    With the disclaimer that I haven’t seen the games in person, I disagree. Oettinger may have had a tough game on Friday night, but for the most part, he’s been very good. He has regularly bailed out an inconsistent defense. It’s good that Prawdzik looks like a capable backup, but the suggestion that he’s an “alternative” to Oettinger is way off.

    Is Oettinger really in contention for the Olympics? I thought he was just hoping to get some actual games at the WJC's this year.

    Also, before they play a currently undefeated team, they gotta play Maine. Is anyone going up there this weekend? Saturday’s game is in Portland. Wonder how the crowd will be at that game.
    I was going to take the family up for the Portland game since I work up there now (so you know, I'm like an expert on all the great places to go ). But alas, my sons Bantam team is playing in a tourney at Waterville Valley - a trip that the kids and parents are looking forward to.

    I think there's something to this. Big O has not been sharp and has been coughing up a lot of juicy rebounds. Max swallowed pucks Saturday night. It will be interesting to see what Q does this weekend.

    Hey, I don't want to make excuses for this team, which in typical Jekyll and Hyde fashion have played an inconsistent first quarter of the season (It's kinda DQ's *thing*), but we've played the strongest schedule of any HE team so far. Any less than 4 points this weekend will be a disappointment.

    Absolutely agreed. In the Friday night game against Providence (when BU forgot the game started at 7:30) it would have been 4-0 if it weren't for Oettinger before BU woke up.

    But aren't you just kind of contradicting yourself? That's kind of the point...the "hallmark" of this team has been inconsistency. They play well one night and mail it in the next. So "expecting" a sweep against anyone at anytime is a tall order...

    A good portion of the inconsistency has to be tied to the lineup roulette. Very tough to get consistent play out of 18 skaters when only three or four of them play with the same guys each night.

    Also, I agree Jake's bailed them out of a lot of defensive breakdowns. Mankato had about 75 A+++++ chances in that series, so of course a bunch of them are eventually going to go in. That said, he's let in a bunch that were on the soft side. I wouldn't be surprised if he feels a lot of pressure this year having been drafted so high, in contention for an Olympic spot, etc. Hopefully getting a night off and some work with the staff can clear his head a bit and hit the reset button - along with some help from the guys in front of him. There's no question he's remarkably skilled, but he's still only 18 so he's still maturing mentally.

    Exactly. The kid is very young. Heck, if pro goalies are allowed to have rough patches here and there, I think an 18 year old is allowed to also. I have every confidence that he can still lead this team to some championships. It is nice to know, however, that we have a back-up who can step it up as well.

    Okay, Chad. I thought you got the hint that it is really inappropriate for you be posting this stuff here?

    Re: Boston University - 2017-2018 season - thread numero uno

    I apologize in advance for this off topic post, but was wondering if some of the local Bostonians could help me out. I am flying back home from Boston this afternoon, and would like to get my daughter a Boston Pride souvineir (t-shirt, hat, etc). Do you think I would be able to find something like that at the airport, or would I have to get it before I get there?

    Thanks!

    Crone-Cloonan-Chabot

    Three games in a row out for Hickey, second for Olsson (voluntarily). Are they legitimately hurt or benched?
