    Maine has only had three winless streaks vs any opponent of 10 or more games: Providence 16 (0-15-1) and BU 13 (0-13, 0-11-2). UNH (0-6-3) can be the fourth on Wednesday.

    In the past three seasons Maine has a winning record vs - UMass
    In the past three seasons Maine has a losing record vs - Boston College, Boston University, Connecticut, Lowell, Merrimack, New Hampshire, Northeastern, Providence
    Revealing numbers. I wouldn't have thought Maine had a losing record against every league team but one. What about Vermont?

    The Minutemen coming up big tonight to help keep us in 5th and wipe out the game in hand that Lowell had over us.

    pretty sure what we want doesn't matter. Besides why would we want to play a team that owns us? Tirrone kills Maine, might suck against everyone else but he has lost one game to Maine in his career. Normally that would be impressive but the last 4 years any stiff could beat Maine.

    Does this UHN game make or break Maines season? At the beginning of the season I'd say no but now the teams needs a win. I'd say UHN cruises

What has saved his bacon to this point is MAINE HAS FINALLY solved there goaltending in #1 Swayman...without him they would be a 10th/11th place door-mat. When the season started not counting on the goaltending situation I had figured 9th/10th/or 11th in Hockey East and slight chance of winning 10-12 games...any gravy would have been a .500 season (15-15-4) and a 8th place finish in Hockey East. With the chance of Home Ice in the 1st round (6 thru 11) and even a chance of a 4th or 5th place finish has more or less put RG in line for extension. Sad part is are we any better..???? or is it more or less the goaltending has put Maine back in the middle of the pack ( 6 though 8 in Hockey East). As I have said before Maine can beat anyone and also they can lose to anyone on any given night. Sadly this year Hockey East has taken a few steps backwards in that the League is not a power in College Hockey...NCHC, big10, and ECAC have moved way ahead of Hockey East in terms of strength and getting teams into the NCAA's. Hockey East will get "MAYBE" two teams into the NCAA's (Auto-Bid and if a team runs the regular season out with a long winning streak and does well in 1st/2nd round and onto Boston for the Semi's and Finals).
    I agree with most of your post, excepting maybe the first sentence.

    If Guite is doing the recruiting, I wouldn't expect to see many de-commits if he's explicitly named as Red's successor.

    Iíve heard that itís mostly Ben and Alfie doing most of the recruiting, and if thatís true it would explain the relative uptick in quality, but it would also make me wonder ďwhat does Red actually do?Ē, because even on the bench he doesnít look like heís that engaged most of the time.

    Lol, I've detected the exact same thing, as in: "Hope the Missus has a cocktail ready when I get to home." He seems like good peeps, but just about ready to be put out to pasture.

    Sad, but true... Still, it's rather brutal to see it laid-out like that in black and white.

    Having said that, I can see Maine inching-up to a relative level of National relevance next year, if HE continues to suck in a general sense.

    How times have changed!

    Iím thrilled heís made it to the NHL and still irritated at the treatment he received from Maineís administration. He had a great pass the other night to setup a goal. Hopefully he is okay and is back out there soon.

    I expected he'd be suspended for the Alaska trip, not that he'd essentially be kicked out of school. Huge overreaction by the administration.

    And to add to my point is the University would be towing the line on that along with the present AD, how could he go back on his deal with RG and not look foolish. But whatever happens we have no control over it. A different era of hockey @ Maine.

    We should all collectively stand behind northeastern fans for knocking of those cheap picks. In Boston. Cronin helped build them.

    We have to win now like they did. I understand we are young. But we can challenge NU. Go challenge.

    Nice win by NU. That first line is tearing it up. Their goalie looks to be good also. Hopefully they can get in NCAAs and make some noise. Look to have the pieces to do that.

    IMO, if you get in this year via the PWR, you have a real chance. Nobody has a dominant team.

    The BDN is saying Pearson is out tonight injured. Anybody know what happened? He finished the Providence game, correct?

    My God, will they ever get rid of that side-show BS? That last shot he took looked like concussion-fodder... How can the moronic NHL brass hand out suspensions for blows to the head, but wink at the same if it happens in the context of a fistfight? What a crock.
