WHY not this for Saturday: Out: Lacroix,Norman,Merchant,Hayes & Morris... IN: Cerretani,Musil,Higgins,Vesey & Start Nugnes with Remeo as the Backup...I mean why not,this was more or less a horror show after the 3-2 Maine lead. Give Vermont all the credit to boot,they came to play...they never let down and they pressured Maine and did all the little things/blocking shots-making the passing lanes near impossible for Maine...and they choked Maine through the center ice and blue line zones...they were focused and Maine was not.

I have a feeling this Lomberg thing has a lot to do with itIf it is...then this season is a waste.

Agreed. However Connor takes too many bad shots when he has better plays available. I think Shore was shocked when he passed it to him in the 2x1 in the third. I know I was.

Who is Devon going to pass it to? Will Merchant? I realize he looks to pass first but be a little selfish and take a few shots instead. I keep thinking of the dangle twins

One thing is for sure.....Maine doesn't need to recruit any goaltenders..........the ones that they have right now are awesome.

Who knew that thug had so much power over this team? Maybe they should channel their energy and "win one for Ryan"........:rolleyes:

Short version: Lomberg beat the stuffing out of a local. The university, having been burned by Jevon Belcher, overreacted and gave Lomberg a three semester suspension (effectively ending his UM career). Lomberg, aside from being a top line forward was a popular player on this team and a scholar-athlete to boot. He now has 17 points in 17 games for Youngstown and Maine is 3-10-1 and can't score in a whorehouse.

Well said. Certainly no conspiracy here.

If Ryan Lomberg is THAT good......certainly Maine should have done better in 2013-2014, no? I mean......someone better than sliced bread should carry a team.

Hyperbole much? Where does anyone say he is better than sliced bread?

It's not all about Lomberg, it's about team unity and team chemistry. Gendron has said the team isn't mentally tough enough. Why wouldn't the Lomberg decision still be affecting their play if they aren't mentally tough enough to play through that adversity? There's not too many other straws to grasp at, because other than better than average goaltending last year not much has changed this year and it's a bit of a mystery how they were able to overachieve last year and completely underachieve so far this year.

As far as conspiracies go, I do think it's more than just a coincidence that the "Fill the Steins Blog" was able to indict Lomberg publicly in the Bangor Daily News before his trial and still claim to be unaffiliated with the University, while Larry Mahoney has had his hands tied through the collapse of the Whitehead era and only could sugarcoat things. It seems to me the "Fill the Steins Blog" was given the OK by the University to do a character assassination on Lomberg before all of the facts were released and before he had a fair trial. If you want a conspiracy, there's one for you.

The team is not getting the job done either way, but the University certainly hasn't done them any favors with how they allowed the Lomberg situation to transpire the way it did.

Yup, mentally gone. If anyone needs a break its this team, right now. They might win a couple more games this season but even that might be stretch

this is NOT last year's schedule through Oct and Nov.

and someone mentioned that Maine could "easily" have won the 2 BU games… I have seen BU much more than I have seen maine this season, and they are a third period team and they are an old shawn walsh, in your face, never give up team… maine was up 2-0 and I still knew that BU was going to have no problem winning… the ONLY time I had second thoughts was when maine was up 2-0 and Brown had an open net…

Maine is ANderson's Merrimack

and I can see who used to run Cahoon's idiotic pass-pass-pass-pass power play. I do not care that the coaching manual was written by red… the PP sucks… Leen does not get great angles and perfect shots, yet the pucks sometimes go in the net for him.

Bingo, Priceless. If the football players would just not break the law Lomberg would still be here

So you are saying Red was the wrong choice?

WHAT MYSTERY?
they "overachieved" playing AIC and the bowdoin women's club team early on… this year Maine has played almost exclusively ranked teams early on
they "overachieved" losing almost every road game and almost every late season important game … (when they were no longer playing the paraolypian sled hockey teams)

how did they over achieve

(and THAT's how ya do hyperbole, John!)

Disregarding the three wins last season against then-last place Merrimack and the two wins over now-last place Massachusetts, Maine is 3-18-2 in the last 23 games and 2-11-1 in Hockey East games.

Those Maine-New Hampshire non-conference games sure looked more attractive this summer than they do now. 10 vs 11 in Hockey East.

Lomberg didn't play D and he didn't play goal. I don't believe any of VTs goals go past last years Marty
