I'm going to listen to Blaise tonight on WUML. I have no idea what he will say.

Conspiracy theory time..........Does anyone think Blaise is looking for a new gig? He didn't look like he cared on Saturday while McEachern was going crazy on some of those calls berating the officials.

I'm sure anything can be possible, but its not like new openings just appear all the time in the college environment. The other thing is Blaise is apt to take penalty minutes which is not good for a team mired by penalties so maybe he deferred to the guy who used to play in the NHL and maybe knows the refs on a personal level a little more.

I sit in Section A at Tsongas ao I look directly at the benches of both teams. McEachern was going nuts on Sunday night. I'm amazed he didn't pick up a bench minor.

I don't think he's looking to go any where. I'm also sure he was ready to explode Saturday night.

According to the Republican (http://www.masslive.com/sports/index.ssf/2010/01/umass_gets_good_reviews_in_hoc.html).

UMass-Lowell coach Blaise MacDonald was not around for post-game
quotes, he immediately left the building at the end of the game.

Usually only one coach goes nuts at a time. Not productive for them all to go nuts.

****, I was liking the idea he left because he didn't want to bust open a player's rib with a 30 pound weight. :cool:

You know him better than I do and its not like it out of the realm of his actions. Besides, what of it if I do? what does that effect, not much?

I missed the show tonight, what else did he have to say?

He said that he's watched the disallowed goal many, many times, and from what he saw, Val was at the top of the right side of the crease and it looked like the puck was in the net before any goaltender interference occurred. He also said that the rule for reviewing a play is that it has to be called by an on-ice official, no players or coaches, etc. So after the goal, everyone's lined up at center ice, the whistle blows for the puck to drop and then Toot sends out a Captain to talk to the ref and then they review the play.

Another issue he had from Saturday was that there was a scrum in front of the UMass net (didn't hear which period) and the ref blew the whistle. Blaise asked for a review but the official said he was in perfect position and no review would be granted. Looking back at the tape, the puck was in the crease, people were battling, and then official (who was in "perfect position) was 40+ feet away blew the whistle. What the official missed was the reason he lost sight of the puck was that Nolet had literally picked it up and tossed it like a frisbee to the face-off dot. Blaise finshed by saying that Lowell just didn't captialize on their chances and Dainton* played a phenomenal game to keep UMass in it with all the pressure Lowell put on him.

Carter Hutton was the player on and they were talking about how he was recruited. That's really about it.

This isn't from personal knowledge, I just think it is a stupid question to ask.

Oh, and HOCKEY EAST IS FIXED!! The goal just gives me flashbacks for the last 25 yrs, only now we can watch again and again to show us and before we could only recall.:p

Good story about Hutton.

Also, I thought Blaise was talking about Friday night where the above happened, but no matter.

he might be looking for a new gig, but seriously who would want him! i for one am glad i wasn't drinking the preseason kool-aid you guys were pouring. by the way, how is the student section working out this year. have we blamed them for any of the team's dismal efforts?

Please stop quoting him. Ignore works so much better that way.
