    Potulny has turned Northern Michigan around in a hurry, unlike, say, a Gendron, who had the advantage of working at a school with better visibility, and has accomplished pretty-much nothing... I would guess that Potulny is on the radar at Minnesota, and everywhere else that there's a D-1 vacancy.

    Yeah, the expectations at nmu and at Minnesota are pretty different. Red ain't getting the job at Minnesota

    Odds this team makes an NCAA tourney appearance in the next three years? 30 percent ish?

    Read the Yahoo NCAA preciew yesterday and found it telling Quinn basically said the BU game after world jrs was the worst coaching decisions hed made. And that was Maines one good win all year!

    If Maine is going to make the tournament next year is the time. Not only will we be well into Red's recruits, the Hockey East schedule is very favorable. Lowell, Northeastern, Providence and Boston College all at home for a pair, plus a home date vs Boston University. Road trips next season are at #4 BU, #5 UConn, #9 Vermont, #10 Merrimack and #11 New Hampshire. Single roadies at BC and UMA. Don't know what non-conference has in store beyond the pair in Duluth, but conference play should be a huge positive for UMaine.

    I read on here some time ago that York was getting $576,000 a year and "The Don" was pulling down something like $500,00. Lots of empty seats during games I viewed this season unlike in the past when they were winning.

    Empty seats compared to PC?

    Dissapointed the contract terms were not changed, seems like some incentive/goal bonuses would be better to have included, not to mention a buyout clause if underperforming.

    Honestly Im not sure itd be ground zero. If these recruits are what theyre sposed to be I think youd see a a significant bounce by a better and more disciplined bench

    I disagree on the schedule, I think.

    Sure, Maine has a better chance to beat UML, NU, PC and BC at home than on the road. But, I'd still put Maine as an underdog (UML bounceback pending) at home. Maine would definitely be favorites at home against UConn, UVM, MC, UNH. On the road, probably a coin flip at best?

    If Maine were going to be a power that brushes aside the bottom teams no matter where they play, then absolutely you want the big dogs at home. But if Maine is average to slightly above average and needs to grind out games against other average teams, facing them all on the road is going to depress the number of wins. I'd be surprised if Maine dropped a home game to MC. I'd be surprised if they DIDN'T drop a road game to MC in a two game series.

    That's why I started with the word "if."

    Maine's chances of knocking off BC, PC or NU are better in Orono than trying to win at Conte Forum, Matthews or Schneider (combined 0-7 this season)

    2 year extension was not the way to go...nope...should of added JUST 1 year and added some *protection that if this upcoming season would go in the dumpster, that the extension would be *VOIDED with a *25% Buy-out on the 1 year added extension...now there on the hook if everything goes wrong. Time to earn his KEEP, and that has not happened so far...even with a winning season this was the same old...same old team with ONLY one key improvement: In Goal/Swayman. I wish/hope this goes well.....BUT from what I watched/seen the last 5 years, this has been less then idle recipe for a rebuilding and moving forward program. OH WELL.

    Why in the world would Red agree to any of that?

    Exactly. There are many fine young coaches from good DI programs who would welcome the opportunity to be the head coach at Maine.

    I am on the fence now on this one...

    But notice how providence cleared, mugged, mamed, etc.. in front of their own goalie against BU in HE final.

    Is this style that hard to coach for Maine. Is it that hard to understand you protect a great goalie and you win games.

    I didn't put question marks on purpose.

    Red has to get better at coaching protecting Maine's netfront. Has to get better defensive defensemen talent.
