On D, does Quinn keep Hickey and Fabbro together or split them up? If they stay together, then Krys-MacLeod. Five guys competing for the last pairing.

Including three second round draft picks, right? There will inevitably be at least one injury, which will give #7 some playing time. But #8 and #9? Are we destined to another season of hearing how one of them is better than Charlie McAvoy?

Also, with his 3 goals last year, I don't agree with Curry being a second liner over Crone. Perhaps, to your point, Curry gets the nod to start the season, but if Crone is as good as Hokie says, he seems like he would move up. Then again, maybe Curry will have a better scoring touch with a year under his belt.

I thought Chabot showed some promise last year as an older freshman
Can players like Curry and Phelps take bigger steps forward. Quinn was very positive on Curry but production was lacking.

Curry is solid, but in fairness was a last minute filler pick up. Had aged out and even though crone has two years of juniors left had twice as many points on a d first team
Crone is a top two line skill player. Curry is a depth player

Which is why Quinn would be positive on him and rightly so

You can't have Thorobreds pulling plows and visa versa.

I feel like Cloonan on the 4th line isn't a good fit. Either he starts scoring and is on the 3rd line, or he is on the sidelines.
Agree with this, and I think his style would be mesh well with someone like Olsson who is more physical, but can skate pretty well and has really good hands. But at some point, he has to start putting pucks in the net. You can only go with the snakebitten reasoning for so long before it becomes apparent there's a skill deficiency.

Cloonan is an example of a player who skates faster than he thinks. On the surface he appears to play the game fast b/c of his skating, but his hockey sense lags.

Having said that, I hope he proves me wrong and has a breakout season, playing a key role and scoring key goals.

I think the real Cloonan season is somewhere in between what we saw in each of his first two seasons.

Ryan Cloonan:

8 pts in his first 7 games = 1.14 PPG

12 pts in his last 66 games = 0.18 PPG.

On the NHL Network interview with Brady Tkachuk, he said he would be wearing #27. Given that he has been wearing #7 regularly (which his dad wore in the NHL), Im a little surprised that he didn't get that number, given that McAvoy is gone. Perhaps an upperclassman wanted to switch to it.

Most of us know that Keith wore #24 for his one season at BU.

Hope you're right about Crone and he earns top six and an opportunity to skate with the skill guys. Schlossman from the GF Herald reportedly expects him to be a very productive college player.

If Olsson stays healthy, BU will have its most physical a group of LWs since the mid 90s. Greenway, Tkachuk, Olsson, Phelps.

Quinn: "Hes [Tkachuk] a beast. I think about putting him and Jordan Greenway on a line together.

New AC coming soon!

Why is there a need for new air conditioning? Did something break at Agganis? :confused:
