    Agreed. Both still have room for continued development in Orono. Selfishly thankful!!

    I want 6 competent types, FCS... This is the only real thing that Maine lacks right now, and that's perfectly obvious.

    They do! I dont know, at this point I'd be a little surprised if they go early. Because, dont know if they took a big enough development stride from last year. Next year will tell.

    I'd also be a little surprised if Michel goes this year, he makes a fair number of mistakes. Although during the first home game I was sitting near a few recruiters checking him out. He did have an off game that day.

    If anybody is headed out early after this year or next, I bet itís Pearson.

    I think you'll see both Holway and Pearson sticking around for the Juniors years @ Maine, Detroit has been known not to rush players before there ready for the next step which for them after there Junior years would be the AHL and from there if and when they develop in the way the Wings want then up to the big club...the Red Wings are in a Rebuild mode...which they should have started this season but would not....these 2 players will be in there plans for the future.

    I agree about Pearson, though I don't think either is ready. Furthermore, Detroit historically has been patient with their draft picks.

    Game on nesn plus tonight. PC has to be heavy favorites, they have owned Maine for years. Like to see Maine at least compete with them.

    The thinking here is they can, need big night out of Swayman and stay the heck out of the box, keep the scoring down...2-1, 3-2 Maine...???

    Maybe on the road they can stay out of box, I've given up on that at home. They simply can't at alfond.

    Providence tied and lost to Vermont last weekend. I think the Friars will be on a "mission" tonight. Having said that, still possible Swayman can win the game.

    Your right that Providence will be none to happy after there play in Vermont, but to UVM's credit they have been playing a whole lot better the last few games...but again for Maine to so call steal a win @ PC, they need Swayman to be the best player on the ice.

    Yeh, he is a good one. A little dry with goals this year but a good play maker.

    I think heís always been more of a pass first player, I read a scouting report from a Red Wings website and they wanted him to develop more of a scoring touch. I think last year he had to do it all on his own for the most part, while this year he has two scorers on his wings he can make feeds to.

    Turn on NESN plus and I got a static graphic screen that says "MAINE AT (9) PROVIDENCE FRIDAY 7 PM" with audio of Northeastern/UConn. Wonderful.

    HockeyEast Web site says 7:15 maybe it'll kick in at the quarter hour like the old TBS

    Maine Hockey: I want to believe
    43-21-4 (.662) in games I attended over 4 years as a student
    104-47-14 (.669) in that time
    3x FROZEN FOUR

    10-20-2 in games I've attended since. (1-2-1 under Red)

    It's on now. This is typical with these "additional" channels. They have no prior programming so there is nothing on up until the second that the broadcast starts.

    Yeah, and the announcer said "We're expecting a sellout tonight." Hysterical...
