    Re: BU offseason thread - this begs some questions!

    At WJSS:


    At that recent gathering with season ticket holders and the Friends, Albie cited Cockerill as a sophomore he expected to take a big step up this season. After going scoreless in his first 11 games, Cockerill had 20 points in the next 26. A leading candidate for a top six spot .

    I thought I heard the anouncer on the USA/Canada game say that Brady had signed a pro contract which precludes him returning to college but he has not picked which AHL team to play for?

    No, I think you misheard. Craig Button seems to be on the London Knights payroll, as he has said in more than one game now that he thinks the best route is to sign, and then if he doesn't make the Senators, play for London. Until late in the today's game, he wasn't even really mentioning the option of returning to BU - he did finally give props to Albie and Co. His options are:

    - Return to BU, skip Senators camp
    - Sign wit Ottawa, go to camp, and hope he makes the team. If he doesn't, he would either end up in London or with Belleville (Ottawa's AHL affiliate)

    It sounds like he wanted to play in this tournament and based on that gauge if he thinks he can make the Senators roster. If he thinks he can, he'll sign. If he doesn't think so, he will return to BU. It sounds like he doesn't want to plan on London or Belleville.

    Did Cockerill get hurt? He drew a penalty in the third period and was on the ice on all fours, seemingly not wanting to put weight on his legs. But there was no mention of it, and the camera didn't stay on him long enigh to see. I don't think he played another shift, but that may be due to the game situation.

    Bavis replaces ex-Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy who took the AHL Binghamton Devils job. All three Pittsburgh org head coaches are Terriers: Mike Sullivan, Clark Donatelli at AHL Wilkes Barre, and Bavis.

    And Joe Pereira, from the 2009 NC team, gets promoted to Associate Head Coach at UConn.

    With two days to run until Brady shares his decision on his path forward this fall, shall we have a little straw poll (stay or go) for some light entertainment?

    Ill start: stay

    I believe its the best physical and emotional developmental approach and will enhance his long term value and prospects the most. Im also an optimist and think it would be great for BU if he is with the program for another year.

    I'm inclined to believe he's returning. While he played very well at the World Jr. Summer Showcase, I wouldn't call his performance "dominant". I think he would've already signed w/ OTT if that was the case. I also think the Twitterverse (from north of the border as well as from NHL.com Mike Morreale) would've already leaked speculation about signing by now.

    No clues in his NHL Network interview last night.

    Stupid move.
    I'll laugh if he ends up in London.

    Im no expert but I have to agree. I dont quite follow the logic on this one.. Even if he has a reasonable / good year I dont see him turning around the franchise next year. How much fun can it be to play for one of the worst teams in the league? One would assume the Tkachuk family is not hurting for cash so I doubt it is a financial decision. Maybe its an ego thing. Who knows. I wish him well but it would have seemed to me he could have used another year or two of development here (and that also would have given the Senators a year or two to rebuild so he would not be walking into a dumpster fire of a situation).

    Really disappointing decision. Chose the wrong path for his career development. Also don't appreciate him stringing BU along throughout the process.

    Kinda hope he doesn't make the Sens and gets sent to London and plays with younger, less mature competition. Maturity is what Brady needs most.

    They are bad. They were bad and going to get worse. If Brady doesn't make them, there are issues.

    Does he leave if Quinn stays?

    Unless you know about the personal relationships that existed it's hard to know. My guess would be that it didn't matter whether Quinn stayed or not in making the decision to sign.
