TvR will not get a ring unless the Blackhawks can beat the Lightning, of course. But, they sure looked good last night. I was really disappointed in the 'original six' Rangers.

Not sure when HEA schedules come out, but now that the OOC games and four games with Maine are scheduled, you can pretty much guess the remaining HEA games, home and away, based on the past few years.

Agreed on the Rangers...too bad. My prediction for this series: 'Hawks in 6...

This is pretty cool; has any UNH alum ever been on a team that went to the SC Finals?

As far as winners ... I'm pretty sure Rod Langway has one (Montreal late '70's) and both Dave Lumley (Edmonton mid '80's) and Norm Lacombe (Edmonton late '80's) may have a pair apiece, while Kevin Dean *might* have one (New Jersey late '90's?). I'm pretty sure Jay Miller was on the Boston team that lost in the SCF to Edmonton in the late '80's. There are likely others, but those are the ones that come to mind ...

So glad you mentioned this aspect Chuck. The facilities argument rings a bit hollow when you look at the success of the program across the street.

(taking on the role of "Mazz"): You're absolutely right, Felger!! :)

Maybe WTSN in Dover will sponsor your radio show? Their motto in the 50s/60s (and later?) was "Next to religion, sports are the most important American way of life."

Well guess we will wait and see. Has to do with coaching most likely; or a change in Athletic Admin can't imagine what else it could be...or maybe...naw couldn't be...

That's for sure. It's going to create quite a buzz.

I actually have no problem playing more of the "Mazz" role..really look forward to hearing the "Mad Chuck" diatribes. Would love to listen to the one about the choice of next season's captain.

I would also add another regular topic to our menu; Both Chuck and I are on record as having a soft spot for the Huntington Hounds, (although the last couple of coaches have made it tough to wish Northeastern any luck.) Then again, UNH fans owe coach Mad Again:mad: a debt of gratitude, for without his assistance this spring the season likely ends in the quarterfinals on Commonwealth Avenue rather than in the semis on Causeway Street. But I digress.

I thought from time to time it would be good to check in on our friends on St. Botolph Street and see how our favorite unhappy person is doing.:mad: With that in mind I want to call everyone's attention to this article (http://www.uscho.com/2015/05/27/interactive-data-how-college-hockey-programs-scored-in-ncaas-academic-progress-rate/) from last week (at least those of you who haven't seen it.) It deals with the academic progress of each of the nation's Division One collegiate hockey programs and its easy to find Northeastern - just go right to the bottom of the list. In fact, if you click and get the line graph that shows the decline over the past decade, that trend pretty much parallels the diminishing respect Chuck and I have for the program.

Congratulations, Coach Mad Again!:mad:

Looking forward to your first show...you could focus on this "news" that's coming down soon...?

As a NU Husky who (usually) has a soft spot for the program Umile runs (and recognizes/accepts the flaws and recent decline of that program), I must say that I am puzzled by the numbers that were published in this article. Here is an article on the NU APR that was published the same day. http://gonu.com/news/2015/5/27/BSB_0527154706.aspx?path=baseball
The article states that every team had an APR above 950 implying that the lowest team APR might have been 951. Another thing that makes the USCHO tally suspect is the enormous gap between St. Cloud St. at 962 and UAH at 948 and NU at 945. The last two are such outliers that further investigation really is warranted.

Felger, I realize that you are only the messenger. The inaccuracy, if there is any, lies with the NCAA and/or the USCHO author. I'm very curious about this and will investigate further. Please note that the players who affected the current APR (?) were not recruited by your friend, Mr. Madigan.

Your impressive score of 997 is darn near perfect. You must have ticked off someone at BC. And how in the world does bu show up with a score of 970 ??
