Hey, what's with this thread becoming all about BC coaching history? Save that for next month!

I really enjoyed the game last night with a rare opportunity to sit in the Pres's skybox suite. Student energy below was the best that I have heard in a long time. Matt and Darci (I think) were excellent with cowbell duet, not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, when the crowd noise was at its max, NESN was on TV time out for commercial break, although friends who watched on NESN told me later that it was still the loudest crowd that they had heard all year.

Hoping that DeSimone can join the 100 point club tonight and the Cats can pick up another two points, but they need to stay out of the box, and as noted above, tighten up the D in front of DiGi.

Maine needs a "goaltender" (they do not seem to develop currently at Maine)................all the other top teams have someone to stop at least 35-40 shots............is Grant coming back........next year 4 goalie rotation ?........is anyone going to get comfortable in that position? no chance to gain confidence to redeem yourself.............too much roulette experience to find out who's hot............Is everyone happy ??

Meh....the goalies are there...and under different circumstances I think they'd be very solid...something about whats going on with their heads though ... there's just no consistent recipe being developed to build their confidence that I can see. I cant help get the sense that Timmay's listening to this board, trying whats suggested, and just plain failing because of it. :):D

I still think they have a shot to make it this year, but then again I actually support the team, not cheer for them to get blown out on national TV.

Can you say you've been happy with the product you're seeing on the ice? The horrible defensive zone coverage, the average, at best, goaltending, the seeming inability to score goals?

I was editing my copy of the Lowell game from early in the season, and granted, it was Lowell, but the team looked lightyears better than then they do now. care to offer an explanation why?

Look at Sauer at UW or Parker at BU. Great coaches in their day, but both brought their respective programs to their knees before they left. I realize Parker hasn't left yet, but I don't see things getting better before he does.

He just won a NC two seasons ago. Hardly the dregs to which Maine has sunk.

The 2004 Hockey East final. I don't have the same fondness the rest of you have for Alfond. I've set foot in the building once since I got my ring in '93. I didn't realize attendance at the game was compulsory to support a team. Guess I can't be a Patriots fan anymore. :(

Is your company name on a plaque in the Shawn Walsh Hockey center? Do you buy Season Tickets?, Does the Athletic dept call you for donations? What kind of suport are we talking about? You certainly haven't been in Alfond since what 94 or so? Who cheers for them to get blown out?, I may predict that but I've never cheered for it.

So you think they might win the HE tourney? Like to see it but its going to be tough to beat Merrimack at home in the QFs, isn't it?

Right. This was never posted in the Maine thread before Maine beat Boston College.


I hope BC comes out and crushes Maine so we can hear some more good excuses and be embarrassed on national TV.

It's a figment of my imagination. And the moron who posted that didn't respond by saying that he does indeed want Maine to lose every game. Glad to know that never happened.

Did I post it? You quoted me and threw that gem out, maybe thats why I was confused. Obviously their are lots of disgruntled folks on here, including me but my beef is team D and its already showing tonight

That was an outstanding effort by the team, betrayed by soft goals at the end. I didn't get the sense last night watching them play that the team was playing for their tournament lives, were willing to put it all out on the ice and do what they had to do to get a win, but tonight I did.

And yeah, Sirman gave up a couple of soft goals. But that said, until Sully gets healthy, I think he's the guy that has to play in net. Ouellette just doesn't inspire confidence, he just doesn't seem ready for this situation, not sure if a lot of it isn't just mental toughness.

But what a heartbreaking way to lose. Thought Nyquist was gonna seal this one.
