No mookie. I've been out of town and incommunicado and seeing as how I've never set up a Twitter page before, that could take a while. Not that I'm not going to do it. :)

Carry on, the rest of you. :)

dont set up a twitter account - it's pointless garbage. the only redeeming quality is that it provides fodder for conan's twitter tracker.

if she did it, it would be worthwhile.

FOH needs to let people know stuff they are doing when on the road. MSH used to have stuff planned out, "meet before and after games at this bar at this hotel, etc" with times, etc. there used to be mailings for stuff.

now it's "??????". or better yet see Scarlet before it happens and ask her what's going on.

twitter is easy to sign up and get alerts sent to you. she would have everything ready to go and send in a flash.

(and the fact that you watch conan disqualifies you for comment :p :p )

heck, rogie should have one for the BU blog to alert me to new content with links :D :cool:

youre right, in that regard it'd be helpful. hopefully we wouldnt be seeing things like "@FriendsofHockey I'm eating cereal!"

i'll chalk the conan comment up to a difference in age. i'd be disqualified if i watched jimmy fallon or carson daly.

if something like that came to be, i would break the innertubes myself!

(though if Scarlet does follow through, we may read: "@FriendsofHockey I'm having a lemontini made by my hottie bartender!!"

I see somebody has already been kind enough to rate our pre-season thread one star... adding my five star rating we're back to three...

So, going on to actual preseason talk... anybody know what the goalie situation is going to be like this year? I'd heard talk we're likely to see a return to the Rolly/Millan rotation to start the season at lease...

I think I brought it up to 4.

There will definitely be some sort of rotation. Whether it's split 50/50 or Rolly starts every third or fourth game, I don't know, but you won't see Millan starting six or seven games in a row, at least not right away.

of course they will rotate. as it should be.

give both a chance to win the job. if both can play at a high level (1995), let them. if one takes the bull by the horns, whether outstanding play or injury, let them.

I tried, but my vote didn't bring it up to 5 stars!

I'm hoping Millan's performance in the Frozen Four doesn't weigh on him. We still won, and he's a bounce-back kind of player, so I doubt that, but having Rollie there to get a healthy competition going will keep both at the top of their game, and hopefully give us a chance to win every night. There is absolutely no doubt that Millan was the better goaltender last year. It wasn't just Rollheiser's injury, the numbers eventually showed a big separation in play. However, things change from year to year and I think both guys are going to be determined to get a share of time.

Let's not forget about Kraus, he has senior night to look forward to...next season.

I may very well make a Kraus sign to bring to every game of the season next year... at least he'll still be working the doors.

In other news the thread has reached five stars, high fives all around.

Honestly, the more I watched the games the better Millan played in my eyes.

He let in about 5 soft goals on the weekend (which is far from good, but he was a freshman, it happens), but he made some great saves on shots much harder than the ones he let in. He also seemed to rebound well from the final goal he let in, and besides looking a little tentative on the dump in after the tying goal he returned to the same old Kieran, so I'm optimistic for next year.

I'm on board with the Rollie express. I hope to see him emerge as a legitimate full time starter and have a 1/1A goalie tandem between him and Millan this season.

Another player I like to see step it up is Mr. Trivino. He came in with some hype, but suffered long stretches of invisibility out on the ice last season. Some of it could be attributed the talent around him overshadowing his play. However, a lot of that talent has moved on:( so now it's his time to take it up a notch or three.

youre forgetting he also had two extended periods of inactivity due to injury starting in october at unh.

in the press release on goterriers.com it says that there will be a pre-sale period to season ticket holders and students, etc. during early september before the 17th public onsale. the same line is in the bc press release, says more specific information will be given when it's available.

I think we'll see a much improved Trivino. Strength will be difference #1. Playing time too.

I love the video from immediately after the tying goal where you see Millan rushing back to the goal instead of celebrating with his teammates. really shows how focused he is

anyone have a link to that? I can't find it right now
