I'm one of the biggest O'Neill supporters out there but with Abbott on the point on the power play anyways I think we'll survive. Certainly rather have him out there than not but....

According to Whitehead on the TW Show....Amstoy & Andersson are ready for the NU series...O'Neill as mentioned before,out 4-6 wks...House is still a question-mark as being ready,more to be known by Wednesday. Diamond has a nagging lower body injury that he has had all season...this week vs NU sounded like he would be out. So thats it in a Nut-Shell.

This team is deep, no need to worry, they'll still go undefeated the rest of the way.

:) In seriousness, depth is certainly a strong suit this year. Awful nice after the last few. Maybe O'Conner will see some ice time this weekend. He's only played in one game so far.

Maine could win 10-0 and you'd still find something to ***** about.-BrrringBrrring- "Oh, Kettle, Pot here. You're black."

bdn article on sullivan... also talks about the injury situation (though provides little clarity)

http://new.bangordailynews.com/2010/11/08/sports/goalie-sullivan-starts-strong-for-bears/

one thing i read into it was that the job is sully's... white head says:

“We want to give the other goalies an opportunity to play when we can."

I read that as he's our #1 and we'll try to work the others into the lineup when we can....

Yeah, i agree. Our goaltending situation doesn't suck. Which is nice.

The whole goaltending situation is funny, especially since there was so much Ouellette hype all summer long, almost no mention of Sullivan at all on this board.

Very true. You just never know how a team is going to come together and what the player development will be.

Fighting...urge...to say....uggghhhhh....screw it....

Called that one back in August! :p :rolleyes:

You can't bring in 3 kids with decent recent histories who all want/are fighting for a chance to play and succeed on a team with legit potential, and not think that at least ONE of them will focus, find a groove, and run with it.

The fact that it has been Sullivan thusfar is very MAINE....the overlooked kid with a chip on his shoulder.

I read that as he's our #1 and we'll try to work the others into the lineup when we can....

I do too, and I'm excited to see if Dan can continue to emerge into this role. I think he looked calm and composed at BU and if the playoffs were tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar I'd have him between the pipes.

But by no means does that mean I want to give limited reps to the other guys. I'd still be playing them all somewhat equally....but probably just giving Dan the bigger games unless someone earns the spot over him.

Shawn was our opening day #1 and I'd like to wait for him to at least lose a start before I start limiting his reps.

Martin was the guy everyone thought would emerge as the #1, and we've only given him 1 look. Hey, one or two of those goals might have been softies, but it was the kid's 1st collegiate start, and he spent most of September dinged up. It was the 1st time in probably 6 months he had seen meaningful action close to that speed, and he probably had some rookie butterflies. Can we give this guy a 2nd look before we rarely play him and he becomes our next Matty Lundin?

Like I said, my hat off to Dan...if you asked me who Maine's #1 is right now, he'd be my answer. But lets keep looking and pushing each of them.

As I said before, throw Oullette out there first game against BC....letz see what hes got. ;) challenge him.

If Sully's the #1, which I can go with considering how well he's played, then wouldn't it make sense to redshirt Ouellette if we've got two capable goalies this season?

Also, Sully's rise to #1 certainly must have come as a shock to everyone involved with the team, as he's the only goalie who hasn't got his helmet painted, still wearing the plain white cage. If they had expected him to come in and make an impact, you can be sure he'd have had a painted mask. Ouellette does.

was it Michaud or Yeats who did not paint his for years?

and do you think that Ouelette can red shirt if he put on the jersey and sat on the bench for so many games? (I have seen him on the bench at many, if not all games, home and away)
