Well, Clendening is already SteveF's modern day Dan Spang (high frequency ROTWeak).

The quick summary on the new blood:
Coyle - for a big man, very good hands. Has impressed along the boards (think Colin Wilson), but would have even better numbers if he hadn't whiffed on a few slam dunks.
Nieto - flashes of brilliance, but not much cashing in yet. Great skater
Gill - despite Hokydad's doom and gloom, Sahir is a dynamite player at this level.
Cisse - out indefinitely with recurring ankle injuries
Clendening - as good as advertised (despite aforememntioned ROTW status), despite only having a couple points. Looks better than Shattenkirk did as a frosh.
Noonan - pleasant surprise on d. Late pick-up (trade for Randy Moss) has received PP time and impressed coach
Riukka - not a freshman, but playing his first games after two years of sitting out with injuries. Looks solid so far.

Re Clendening/ROTWeak: Consider the source and remember that Clendening had the temerity to part ways with BC after committing there.

Good assessment overall. Despite his high-end speed and skill, Nieto, who doesn't turn 18 'til this Friday, may be one of those freshman who need a semester to adjust to D1 hockey. Then, watch out b/c the talent is there. Gill is, as Hockey Buzz reported, an "instinctive passer" and has excellent vision. If he stays on the first line, he could do for Joe Pereira what Higgins did for Jason Lawrence. Watched Ruikka closely on Saturday; solid on D, keeps it simple on offense. You'll know he's playing effectively when you don't hear about him.

Wait, this thread has lowered itself to actually start talking about serious aspects of the upcoming game?

What happened to the sandbagging and name calling? I may have to quit this thread if this new trend continues... :D

This was the first post in almost two days. I think everyone else already did quit this thread.

So what are my chances of walking up to Agannis Saturday night and being able to get a ticket. Thinking of making the trip down.

Someone was selling 2 at face value on the Maine thread.

I'm not expecting a sellout (BU hasn't sold out a game yet this year and only sold out BC games and maybe the Michigan game last year), but I wouldn't be totally shocked if it was a sellout. I assume you're trying to avoid Ticketmaster fees. Worse comes to worst, there are always scalpers out front.

RE: tickets; bought some on the ticket exchange, printed them right off the site and the fee is only like $3 as opposed to the $8 ticketmaster normally charges. It's linked right on the ticketmaster page.

It would be nice to see you. You'll be able to get a ticket. Otherwise, I can get you in by the start of the 2nd. ;)

This will be a good early test for both teams. I'm hoping BU can score more than 2 at home, because they might need it. They've done a great job cutting down on Grade A chances and Millan is playing pretty well. We expected some good talent coming in as Freshman, but Noonan has been one of my favorites. He has made a number of great plays in the D zone when I see the pass going to the enemy forward across the grain with a pretty good chunk of empty net to shoot at when suddenly his stick or body is between the puck and the goal. He seems to read the flow of the game really well and gets himself in the right position.

Always fun to watch Gustav. He's a great player. House still up to snuff?

I'm thinking BU squeaks by with 5-3 win. Perhaps with a Maine extra attacker goal and BU empty net.

After Jack's refs hand us the game and BU finally figures out how to score on the PP of course. :D

House is solid, but watch out for Spencer Abbott.

BTW, we haven't forgotten the fat S*B with the Maine jersey cheering on national TV when Miami scored to go up 3-1 in the NC game...:D

Too bad they didn't show him again a little later. :D

Turns it around backwards or flips it down on the ice...let's see Maine score on that!

BTW, we haven't forgotten the fat S*B with the Maine jersey cheering on national TV when Miami scored to go up 3-1 in the NC game...may he fall down drunk and have a passing moose make him his girlfriend.:D

mmm, yes, the audacity of someone to attend the national championship game and pick a side...

let alone the side that wasn't in line with long standing rivals with trash talking fans...instead rooting for the underdog without a title to their name. What a bastard! I hope he dies.

No, his power is limited to picking sweeps. He didn't have the opportunity to pick a Maine sweep, so the players still control some of this. :cool:

Well, when you show up to a game and wear a jersey for a team that isn't even involved, and happen to be a rival of one of the teams that is playing, and root for the other team to win, you most likely are going to get ridiculed by that team's fans. It's like when Yankees fans show up at random Red Sox games with their Yankees gear even though the Yankees are not playing. Or if a BU fan showed up at BC game to root against BC even if BU was not playing. It's fine if you do not identify yourself, but if you go out and wear a jersey and do it....you will get ridiculed.

I'm fine with him getting rediculed by BU fans... but have you ever been to a frozen four? It's the college hockey event of the year. It's not a regular season game. Don't act like it's a big issue that he wore his Maine jersey when Maine wasn't playing. Part of the fun of being at the event is seeing the jerseys of the fans from all of the teams, whether they made it that far or not.
