    With all due respect, would you seriously describe Maine's past two classes as "great"..?

    Not trying to pick a fight, mind you, just asking.

    I would describe them as way better then what Maine has recruited lately. I think your definition of great is a team competing for a NC. That ship sailed when Shawn and Grants guys were gone. If all you look at is Swayman I'd say great isn't too far off the mark.

    Yes. Here is what I said before(which should be considered great)...

    The sophomore class can boast the following:

    Top scoring sophomore forwards(tied) - Pearson, Fossier
    Second, third, and fourth best scoring sophmore forwards points per game - Pearson, Fossier, Doherty
    Fifth best scoring sophmore defensemen - Holway
    Third best sophmore defensemen plus/minus rating - Holway

    So it is starting to look like we can't complain about not getting any recruits or talent anymore. Combine that with all of the players next year coming from USHL and it is very encouraging!

    With four classes like the freshmen and sophomore classes I think you’re definitely an NCAA team. Winning the title usually involves a fair bit of luck. All you can do is make the tourney and hope for the best.

    Comparing the last 2 classes to upper classman shows the last 2 classes are better but are they great compared to classes in other leagues.?? I don't watch other leagues until NCAAs so I have no clue.
    I still say this team is exceeding what any of us realistically thought might happen this year. Enjoy it

    The difference has been Swayman in net, without him playing the position as a strength, Maine might not have or be close to having a winning record. He can make the difference in a close series.

    Jack Rodrique? Shawn wouldn't play him until a PP, guy could put a puck thru the glass with his slap shot though.

    And I'll be surprised (pleasantly) if Merrimack scores 2 goals over the course of the weekend against Swayman, let alone 2 in one game. Their PP is very good, but 5v5, um, not so much.

    Just took a quick look at the national stats, and they certainly don't support your post. (Were you were referencing Maine vs. this year's sub-par HEA competition, as opposed to the entire NCAA..? That's fake news.)

    Anyway, you and I and Wally and anyone with Brain Cell One recognizes that Maine certainly has improved, and I'm inclined to enjoy it, but not inclined to accept hyperbole. This program's personnel isn't anywhere near "great", but with Swayman on board, perhaps there's a shot at the NCAA's next year.

    I can possibly see that happening, and I'll be at the Regional if they make it there. But let's keep it real here until then. Please.

    Good Lord, I agree... if Rob was the #1, Maine would maybe have 8 wins so far. Sway is a special player and he might move mountains in the coming years.

    You are our spokesman. Cheer for your team. I saw the posts in the bottom four where you seemingly cheer for us to lose.

    Sorry. I don't like negativity. I want promise. I won't apologize again. Gear up. Or go home. I like future. I do not care for looking over the shoulder or whistling through the grave yard... laws no.
