Or maybe start with the modest goal of ending the losing streak?

Will the goalie be a returning player (Barrow or Switaj) or the freshman McArthur?

It'll be McArthur; you don't get the Canadian U18 starter and not play her lol... Also Kinger has shown that she has no problem starting true freshmen; BC's used essentially only 4-year goalies all the way back to at least Schaus in '06-'07 (Schaus, Boyles, and Burt were all 4 year starters).

Also Switaj is graduating.

We also have another freshman goalie coming in, Kelly Pickreign.

Ok thanks, I probably should have checked the roster closer to see that Switaj was a senior...:)

I think she might be a redshirt senior (she didn't play this year -- Burt was the only one to play any minutes at all), but she's not expected back.

Can we not put this threat on hold until July, or at least April people?!?! This season isn't over until Sunday. Then let's have some down time until April you fools. While we're at it let's change the name of this thread to "all Swedish no Finnish" since BC has such a tradition of choking at the end of the season. Yup I'm going to say it, that's a coaching issue. I can look back on my playing experience and remember games that we just weren't prepared for compared to those that we were, and preparation starts with the head coach.

The title says what the topic is. If you're not in the mood for the topic, don't enter, and you'll never have to know that people are discussing hockey on a hockey forum w/o permission.

I’d like the Eagles victory parade next year start somewhere close to the “T” stop at Arlington and Boylston St. That’d work.

Imagine if part of the parade was a flash mob with Watts, that did a phase dance...That would light the place up.

This thread is much better than the ones talking about the Frozen Four imo

This thread is much better than the ones talking about the Frozen Four imoI have certainly lived through the end of seasons such that I can fully relate; e.g., 2008 came to a painful end.

This year, I'm at peace with the Gophers' season being kaput and I am looking forward to the FF. There was a part of you that knew back when Barnes was called up that BC's season was not going to end well, but since then, you watched too many pucks go in the net and thought, "Maybe we can outscore them." It would be interesting to look back through the stats and find the worst defensive team to win an NCAA Title.

I'd love to see BC win. I routed for them in the game against Minnesota, the only time they made the title game. However, until BC starts scheduling harder teams on a more consistent basis, I don't see it happening. They'll have a dominant offense against most of Hockey East and when they play teams that have better defenses, the Eagles won't be able to figure it out in time.

Iíve never followed BC closely but have they ever had 3 Olympic D on the roster at one time before? I have to think they are going to be absolutely loaded next year.

They will be a very strong team but would be concerned with goaltending although if you canít get to the net, how much does it matter?

There was a part of you that knew back when Barnes was called up that BC's season was not going to end well, but since then, you watched too many pucks go in the net and thought, "Maybe we can outscore them."Yeah, basically this. Plus it's not like we had no shot -- we had a puncher's chance against anyone. But everyone else did against us, too. You're right though that deep down I knew this team just wasn't quite there. I kept telling myself that everyone else is flawed too this year -- which is true -- but BC's flaws were just a little too much I guess.


However, until BC starts scheduling harder teams on a more consistent basis, I don't see it happening.We're doing the best we can. Wisconsin and Minnesota won't play us so we've got the series with Duluth, which is fine. As for the eastern teams, everyone's scheduled a couple years in advance and some of these teams it's hard to predict where they're gonna go. Harvard shouldn't be this bad and we play them 1-2 times a year. We usually have a pair with SLU or Clarkson. Quinnipiac was in there for a while and they were good but now they aren't. The Beanpot takes away two games, one of which is usually Harvard, who, again, used to be good all the time. We do play Syracuse every year but that's because something something ACC and that's not going away.

So I mean I don't think there's anything more we can do W/R/T OOC scheduling. We're doing the best we can and that's what have to roll with.


They will be a very strong team but would be concerned with goaltending although if you can’t get to the net, how much does it matter?
Yeah I mean losing Burt definitely sucks, but at this point we've got a pretty strong history of bringing in talented goaltenders and putting them in a position to succeed off the bat. There's not much more we could ask for recruiting-wise for an incoming freshman goalie than the starting Canadian U18 who was peppered by a significantly better Team USA squad like a half dozen times. So while goalie is definitely a question mark, I don't think we could have ourselves in a better situation for losing our starter.
