    Maine 2017-2018: R-E-S-P-E-C-T

    Maine used to have a thread when they were horrible....now they are decent & no thread. Go figure.

    This is a fun team to watch. Borderline Top 10...would be great to see them break into the NCAA Tourney this season but they will most likely need a couple of big wins to do that.

    Maine comes in at #10 this week in the USCHO poll. Might be their first Top 10 ranking ever!

    USCHO women's hockey "experts" missed Maine vs. Merrimack when they made their picks for this weekend. Need some R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

    Hmm. Well, the pick would probably be for Maine to win 2 right? Or at least take 3 out of 4 points? Am I under estimating Merrimack? I know little about them, beyond their early season split with Minn.

    As for the respect, if respect means coverage my 2 cents are that the discussion and coverage will come from fans of the individual teams, so itís nice you guys have started this thread. The national writers, I think they do a nice job, but itís not like they watch every game so they canít have a pulse in whatís going on at the individual level and team level within each league. Itís jist too much. There are lots of takes out there that make me raise my eyebrows (not so much USCHO to be honest) but it is what it is. If respect means, people thinking you have a good team, for most teams I think it will take winning a national championship to get some fleeting respect. From the players and coaches perspective winning is their goal, so perhaps they donít care. For fans who want coverage and decent takes, it sucks sometimes.

    That doesnít excuse the oversight of missing calling a series! Thatís no fun for fans who scour the little coverage there is, and see their team excluded. Hope you are included next week.

    Quite remarkable really, for a program to be ranked in the top 10 with little resources. As of a couple of years ago the coaches salary was around $50K. Don't know if his wife receives a stipend or not. He has done very well recruiting talent with the scholarship money that he has available.

    Actually, there's only one game this weekend, on Saturday night at Merrimack. Next weekend, we play Merrimack twice at home.

    5-1 last Saturday, 4-1 this afternoon. And the USCHO scribes predicted a Maine sweep this weekend. Actually, they would have predicted the score correctly except that Maine scored an empty-netter with a few seconds to go.
