..so if we had won in OT you would feel differently?

Pls delete this ridiculous thread.. least discuss your opinions in the regular NU thread.

Everybody fought hard out there tonight.. we actually won a few new fans.
Were you even there..

Yah because all the coachs before him had such success. He has done a very good job. This team played hard tonight, beaten by a better team

This. I for one was extremely impressed by NU tonight. Couldn't believe they pushed BC to the limit. I was thinking 5-1, 6-0 BC going into tonight. Boy was I wrong.

Cronin inherited a vehicle that was ready to bottom out, which it did in his 1st year.

NU's win total climbed every year for the next 3 and before you know it --- a class that experienced a 3 win team as freshmen were now a 25 win team as seniors.

They've dropped from that plateau, but they also lost a lot of talent and Hockey East is a tough league all around. Jockying in 5th or 6th place in the conference is better than many expected for this season. They've played a lot of very good teams very well this season even in losses. They have some nice looking underclassmen on their team.

I'm not seeing your point.

To elaborate, I am not trying to be a hypocrite. Most Maine fans, myself included, want Tim's neck.

But you can't really look at the coach unless you answer 'yes' to: do you honestly think another guy, or another system would be significantly more successful with what they have. . As I said, NU lost quite a bit these last two years, but they've got some emerging underclassmen.

If you don't think a great coach could make a consistant top-5 or 10 team out of Gustav Nyquist, Spencer Abbott, Brian Flynn, Robby Dee, Joey Diamond, Tanner House, Matt Mangene, Kyle Beattie, 5 upperclass defensemen and a Blue Jackets draft pick in net then I firmly disagree with you.

Cronin has attracted some awfully nice looking players to NU and there are more in line.

Dude, go post your nonsense somewhere else. This team took the #1 team in the nation to a 6-6 game into overtime and nearly won. They can still definitely make the Garden come March. Because we were sooooo good before Cronin with our 15-year NCAA drought and all those Beanpot titles...oh wait.

Cronin had 1 good year. He made the NCAA tourney. Every coach before him had one good year. He has had some god awful years.

He has been the coach for 5 years. THIS IS HIS TEAM. THIS IS HIS RECRUITING. IT IS NOT BETTER.

He took NU to the beanpot finals and had his STAR goalie give up 6 goals in the finals. THAT IS NOT GOOD. NOR DOES IT WIN BEANPOTS!

Tell me something this ****ing savoir has done. I'll argue he's done nothing.

NU fans need to wake up. Nothing is great. Nothing is good. If you want 500 hockey, pay your donations. Cronin will give you that.


NEXT!

Trade proposal: Cronin for Whitehead. Straight up.

Actually, we'll throw in Kerluke and the part-time, invisible goalie coach

WHAT A STUPID THREAD.

NU was amazing tonight and looked fantastic. Made BC look terrible IMO.

Cronin had these guys prepared as well as they possibly could be I think. They just seemed to know how to expose BC. It almost worked. One bounce here or there and it's a different story.

Cronin and his team impressed me tonight. It would be foolish to get rid of him.

NU gave up 7 goals.

He publicly downplayed his teams ability.

Giving up 6 goals is never a good performance.


EVER!

Even if you are BU, BC, ND, Minn, Mich.

WAKE THE F UP! 6 GOALS IS A BAD NIGHT!

Prior to Cronin, when was the last time NU made the HE semifinals and NCAA tourney?


He has been the coach for 5 years. THIS IS HIS TEAM. THIS IS HIS RECRUITING. IT IS NOT BETTER.

NU is better than they were when he took over. That is absolutely fact, not opinion.


He took NU to the beanpot finals and had his STAR goalie give up 6 goals in the finals. THAT IS NOT GOOD.

You do realize that BC's star goalie gave up six as well, right? Guess York should get the boot as well.

After what I saw tonight...I have one question...

What'dya talkin' abo't, Willis??

Seriously, you are kidding. I'm a Lowell fan and not being a hypocrite myself but your underclassmen are miles ahead of where we are now. You still have a small chance at home ice if BU isn't careful. There are two teams I woudn't want to see in the HE playoffs. One of them is Merrimack, the other is you guys.

C'mon, Oleksiak has viable NHL potential if he stays all four years, him, Bitello, Eiber could be a very formidable defense in two years. Reid also looks like the real deal, Dongara was all over the ice and beat the defense and goalie "like a rented 'Muse'" on a school move. You hung a six-spot on the top team in the league; with a little more back-end experience, you would have won that game.

This is silly. :rolleyes:
