    wow- sad- It was the first game of season and we are now 3 weeks in
    Hard to keep non core fans interested in college hockey in early October
    Someone should take a look at length of season in this period of diminishing interest and attendance

    Agreed. Last week of September seems to early for Hockey to start. I’m a pretty big fan, and even I don’t have much interest at that point.

    I don't want to be a broken record, but David Quinn sucks at being a head coach. The more practice time they get, the worse they become. Absolutely no semblance of a coherent team offense. It's much worse than last season.

    Also, the attendance sucks, the atmosphere is non-existent, the between period entertainment is literally the stupidest stuff I've ever seen.

    Many people should begin collecting unemployment on Monday.

    He's totally ****ing clueless. We didn't win because we gave up too many odd-man rushes? Really? Not because we had literally no hope of scoring goals 5x5 set up in the zone?

    “I thought we generated offense. *I thought we defended hard in our end. What I didn’t like was I thought we gave up too many odd-man rushes. We got to absolutely clean that up. Puck management is a problem for us right now, but I love the pace we played at…It's just frustrating because we just haven't been able to score goals."”

    Completely agree with all of this. Hopefully we will have a repeat of 2009 real soon where the talent is so great that the coaching doesn’t matter.

    The talent was great, but the leadership on that team was even better.

    Keller looks so good at the next level. Last year's team was so frustrating.

    Brought my niece to the UConn game last night. Two minutes in, when it was 2-0,she tells me she’s a good luck charm. I agree. I may set up a GoFund me page this week to convince her to come to the game against Denver this Friday. 😀

    Thought they played muuuuchbetter last night. Patrick Curry is developing into pretty decent player.

    I have to admit he is proving me wrong. I didn't think he would have an immediate impact, but his skills and speed are translating into production.

    Given the less than impressive overall start (relative to expectations), I'll be happy if they can get a tie against Denver in two games.

    We only play Denver once, @PC Saturday who has also had a very underwhelming start to the year.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    Obviously happy with the offensive production. I didn't see the game, only listened to Bernie, so I can't really say if it portends a better in-system offensive production, but we will see. I don't like giving up 3 to UConn, but Bernie kinda made it seem like the latter two were ones that Jake normally stops, so probably not too much to worry about there.

    We've said that a lot this month. Is he feeling the draft pressure?

    I thought he has been playing pretty well. He was awesome even when they gave up six last weekend. I think the one at home against UConn that tipped off the top of glove might have been one he should have had, but I couldn't tell if he got screened or if the shot nicked the stick of the BU player higher up in the slot.
