Can you imagine? This thread would blow up and go into double digit incarnations.

Didn't Baldwin get suplexed some Beanpots ago?

Will the team somehow rise from the ashes and "win one for the gipper" on Jack Parker night?

I look at the thread title and all I can think of is: That's what got Nicastro in trouble...

You do not want that, how about a tie,? a tie does not send them West...a win does.....most likely.

I'd be more concerned with scoring a goal at this point . You have to walk before you run, just saying. Seriously though, have they just quit? This is insane

think it'll be a close couple gms.. I actually see a split even though i'd love a sweep.

anyway, in the meanwhile have Quinn view Red.. (gotta love Red)..

wait for it..
wait..

it's at the 6:10 mark..

I have been asking myself that every time I watch...and I always come to the same conclusion: it looks as though they really care (or enough of them do)...I know it sounds like a ridiculous answer (I guess because we're just not used to seeing them be this bad), but I just don't think they have much talent. As for "what about the top leftovers from last year?" I think when you are an achiever and you start to realize that you have no chance for a successful season, you kind of "sink" to the level of the others. You may say that's not very good leadership, but it's demoralizing to not only continually lose, but to come to the realization that you have almost no chance to win, and even if you win ONE, you will probably lose the next three in a row. It's the same theory as to why great players generally do not become good coaches, because they have a difficult time accepting mediocrity. A season carries momentum...just as winning begets winning, the opposite happens as well.

These guys will not be close. NU has too much to play for and is too good while BU wants to "get this nightmare of a season over with".

NU 4 BU 1
NU 4 BU 0

You just got yourself a 10 minute major for that one. :mad:

Whatever happened to Fidel anyway? ;)

Regarding whether they've quit or not, I don't think they have either as they played in good game in the Beanpot for example. As Ty said to Al Czervik on the golf course..."hey c'mon now, you're just, you know, you're just not that good. You stink, Al".

I realize you probably weren't legitimately asking what happened to him but it appears he is in the ECHL with the Toledo Walleye (http://echl.com/stats/player.php?id=4584)
Apparently a Walleye is a fish because I had to look that up too once I saw the team name. 15 assists in 47 games, -13 +/- isn't exactly lighting it up though

We're a perfectly timed winning streak away from a NC. Only has to be a dozen games or so. :D

I was half curious what he was up to, and not just because there's been a rash of indecent assaults in several Boston neighborhoods recently.

Fidel had potential, but I got the sense he wasn't living up to his talent on the ice so it doesn't surprise me he's buried in a place like Toledo. After a season there he probably wishes he got sent to The House Of Striped Sunshine instead. :D

There you go! We've been hiding in the weeds, waiting to sneak up on teams! That's been DQ's strategy all along! :D

Nicely written.. had a chance to meet him this season down in Providence. Could not believe how unassuming (& small) he was.. but not on the ice..

hope he does it again.. g'luck David

Here is my prediction and hope.....Play in vs Vermont , they beat them before, they got a chance.
Lowest seed plays BC Hea qf vs BC, after 2/3 close games, they find a way to win 2. Just like last season in Semis
Hea Finals vs UML They tied them, so once again they find a way to win...

Then I woke up.......
