Noticed that as well. Believe it was the 23rd.

Passed on the Frozen Fenway idea. Figured I could always buy tickets later if I decide I want to go.

BTW we're going to be pretty shorthanded for that one. McCoshen, Santini, Matheson (maybe) & Demko all gone.

Just renewed and bought two upper level seats for Frozen Fenway. Tomorrow is the online deadline. Also received an application in the mail that had a later date, the 21st or 23rd (can't remember the exact date). Anyone else notice this?

no, i didnt notice. i paid zero attention to the Fenway stuff but enjoy yourself, it will be fun the first time

I've been to the previous two frozen fenways involving BC as well. I know it'll be miserable but I rather go than not go. This fad won't last forever and I think its unique *enough* to go as long as they have it.

From the BU side I ended up making the same decision for pretty much the exact reason you described..It won't be nearly as exciting as the first time... But should still be fun for the "event" sake of it.

Yeah, i get that but the older you get the less one is willing to tolerate the elements:o

A small part of the reason i decline to go is there there's no way in hell anything can approach the first one. BC-BU, the newness, the snow , the whole setting was just surreal. You knew you were witnessing something special as far as a Boston event is concerned

I agree. That BC-BU game, even though the outcome wasn't ideal, was such an experience!

and , I have always thought that that game was the stepping stone for BC's run to the National Championship. During that game you could see the team starting to click all of a sudden............ and the rest, as they say is history

^^^ who the heck knows what the freshman will do? At least we have some talented (supposedly) new blood coming which is what was needed. We are within 6 weeks from getting a glimpse

I prefer Linell as a forward unless injuries pile up on the blue line. BC has gone with 5 D in the past but I think the D will be fine and goaltending in good hands. Why isn't Birdsall on your list as one of the goalies on the roster ??

The Hayes line has already redefined "Dump and Chase" hockey!! Sorry, couldn't resist.

Too much emphasis on the incoming freshman; some will succeed immediately, others will not, all will develop. If the team has to rely on
5-6 frosh having career years, the Eagles are in trouble. Wild prediction, BC in the middle of the pack behind BU, Lowell, Providence, and Merrimack.

Linell on defense? God help us if that ever happens this season, or ever again for that matter.

At the end of the day, I'll deal with whatever this team produces provided the staff doesn't put out some of the worst possible line combos possible, which is what we saw last year as the games got more important. Healthy Jerry > Pirate Jerry. Arrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm still not sure what to do with Straight. Bench or 4th line really are the only options for me.

And lastly, Gaudreau needs to be protected. If we're going to see the garbage on him we saw last year, I want to see some nastiness in the mold of a Brennan/Petrecki/Orpik.

Would be quite a line but I don't think it will happen. First Jerry does not put all the eggs in one basket. We saw last year how he broke up Mullane, Whitney, Gaudreau even though they were on fire, to get some other lines moving. I do think Arnold will be with JG for he is the most intense player BC has and will protect JG from all over the ice. Besides do we really want a HAG line?

Hayes and Arnold will most likely be on a line together with another physical presence while Gaudreau will be with two players more of his skill set. Look back over the years and that is how Coach York has done it.

You really don't want to have a valuable asset like Arnold going to the box to protect Gaudreau. Especially with the penalty killing that Arnold provides. He has snarl but that serves him well in how he plays the game and to me nothing more. I'm not sure any forwards fit the bill as an enforcer type that can skate with JG... maybe Silk. Then again some freshmen do have size up front. Going back to the discussion we had last year, much to the chagrin of bluehorseshoe, Silk did well in his time with good linemates (say, better than Linell) and he also has the ability and size to get in there and pummel someone and help with the cycling/possession aspect of the game.

Silk wasn't a big time player last year but if he had a good offseason in the weight room and can just be reasonably good on a good line, he might be a good sleeper pick for the season and he could be fairly important to how the team comes together. Think Andy Powers on a line with Gionta and Reasoner.

Agreed about Silk. Really liked him when he got a chance to play more than a 4th line role.

I got an email from my credit card with a presale offer for Frozen Fenway tickets:

I went before and I'm not going this time. I'm not sure if you need to buy the tickets with a Citi CC or not but you can use 542418 as the password to get in if you want to check it out.
