Norman made NO mistakes on D.
There were some pretty glaring mistakes made by one D man in particular, including
falling down o his first shift (like simon),
letting his man by him a lot (Like Mushaluk),
shooting into a shin pad from the point, resulting in a rebound into the neutral zone and a break away (which was stopped by Romeo.. .his big save), and
getting trapped in deep while jumping into the O (Like Hopson when he played D), and not seeing if someone were going to cover for him, resulting in a goal the other way....

big freshman mistakes... and hopefully good that they were made in a game that "does not matter". Let's hope he learns from them.... I remember Tyler, Nault and Deschamps (and even Matt Martin) making some of those mistakes ONCE.

Do we know why Stu was in a suit and tie? I though the was 100%.

It's hard for me to see Norman playing in front of Rutt, Riley, Hutton, Schurhamer, Renouf, or Hamilton. I think he is better than Hayes, but i'm not sure which one Red would pick if somebody got hurt.

I believe he only started skating again six weeks ago or so. He is probably 100% healthy but not completely back to game speed. There is no need to risk him in something that is essentially meaningless either.

while I did absolutely love how hamilton stays on his feet and can take anything anyone gives him, I can see Norman playing against speedier teams, at least at first. Hamilton is going to be a good one, I think. I just hope he keeps his toes out of any creases and he does not get invited by his ex girlfriend to pick up this toothbrush.

Like Hamilton also but the staff is high on Hayes.

Hope some media members are ready to eat crow come this spring when Maine exceeds expectations and gets back to where they belong: The NCAAs. Still think Vermont is up too high.

Not so much the media. It was the coaches that picked Maine at 9, media had Maine at 6th which is much more respectable. Depth will remain an issue but we should be better than last year everywhere on the ice. Save Goaltending? Hope somebody really steps up in that regard or a tandem works out.

I disagree about Vermont. They'll be pretty tough this season, as they were last, imo.

Hopefully the Jedi Master keeps working with the goalies and D. I can envision him working wonders with the raw potential that came in this year. Can't wait to see this years version of the bigger and meaner black bears. Maybe that's why its up for vote this season..... just vote no on 1! Or izit 2 ?:confused:

Hope somebody really steps up in that regard or a tandem works out.You can bet the Coaches and Players do look at what the Polls say,they may say other wise...but being rated lower then there expectations maybe ANOTHER motivating factor...but they don't need Polls to get there season started on the right foot...the Coaching Staff and the Players themselves will go out and prove their worth. And the main concern to start the season will be as you say: Goaltending,either one or thru a tandem that will be a major factor in how Maine starts and makes it thru the season...my guess is you see a Tandem...until one is so far better that makes it hard not to go with just a #1.

Why does Maine belong in the NCAAs?

Because it is their birthright.

Because it's what we as fans expect of them. Anything less is a disappointment.

Don't be surprised to see Morris and Romeo this weekendI think you could be right on that one...any news on what type of injury Nugnes has? And if healthy(Nugnes)...could he also be in the mix for Starting/Backup role?
