This weekend my wife and I will be heading up to Manchester to watch some exciting college hockey at the NCAA Northeast Regional. As we always do when Maine’s not playing, we’ll pick a team and root for them like they’re our own. In less than two weeks we will head to St. Paul on our way to our 8th consecutive Frozen Four for a great week of hockey festivities and again to watch some exciting college hockey. Again, we’ll pick a team (North Dakota if they’re there) and root for them like they’re our own. In early May, we will attend the Maine Hockey Banquet and officially close out the 2010-2011 Maine hockey season by saying good-bye to the Seniors (and hopefully, only the Seniors).

Then, I will begin piecing together the 2011-2012 Maine Black Bear schedule. I know Maine will be going to North Dakota (I plan to be there) and I know that Nebraska-Omaha will be coming to the Alfond (I plan to be there). The returning veterans, led by seniors Brian, Spencer, Will, Ryan, Theo, Josh, (and who knows, maybe even Gustav – one can dream can’t he?) will come in next year ready to play and we’ll witness some exciting hockey in 2011-2012.

Go Blue! Go Black Bears!! Go Maine!!! :)

You and your wife are true college hockey fans. Friends of mine are also going to St. Paul (they go every year to the Frozen Four, also). Enjoy the hockey and the great atmosphere.

Good for you;have a blast!

The regionals are big fun,even if you don't have a dog in the hunt.Luckily,they show every game on TV here,and I plan to watch at least some of each one.I love this time of year,even if Maine is out on the links.

(Another thing I'm doing to stay in the game is running my annual FF pool at work.Have over 30 entries so far,which is pretty good for a "niche-sport".FWIW,BC and UMD are getting most of the nods to win it all.Me,I kinda like Yale...)

Good luck to Gus, sure will miss watching him play but it was time to move on. Can't wait till he gets to Detroit, Seeing he and jimmy on the ice would be great

as much as i wish he'd give it one more go, i can't blame him. i would've made the same choice if i were in his shoes. like you said, can't wait to see him playing with Detroit. i think him, Pavel Datsyuk, and Henrik Zetterberg would be a flithy line http://board.uscho.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

Bummer about Nyquist. He seemed like a genuinely nice kid when I met him in Detroit last year. Hope he does well.

You are correct about Nyquist. Very mature young man who is very comfortable with who he is as a person and player from my observations. Best wishes to Gustav in professional hockey.

Can't be sad about a player who is good enough to move on. We were lucky to have him here. Seeing him grow as a person while he was here was awesome. If you remember him speaking with reporters as a freshman you could barely understand him, now you wouldn't know he was from Sweden and english was a second language.
Thanks Gus

They were a better team this year. Look what happened.

If this were the '93 team, TIMMAY would have them on the edge of missing the NCAA's.

If this were the 93 team, then every one of them except Tomberlin, Clukey and the kid from SoPo would have decommitted 2 or 3 years ago.

can you IMAGINE, timmy benching Montgomery for trying to rally the troops during stoppages? or shutting him up in the lockerroom?
whoever has not YET seen 42-1-2, the video, MUST see it, and listen to Montgomery imploring the bears to pick it up... "we can beat these guys... [whining] they're not good"... then Maine comes back and wins
Timmy does not allow that kind of rah rah leadership...
Keenan, Cornell and Meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Tim Oooohhhhhmmmmmmmm, ooohhhmmmmmmmmm

Tough to see Nyquist go, although I thought he was headed at the end of last year. Good luck to ME without him next year.

Considering PC finally got rid of Army and UML sent Blaise away, does that help ME's case to dump Whitehead or not really make a difference?

Losing Nyquist certainly wont make Timbo's job any easier next year :D And the 5 internet nutcases, which has morphed into the Whitehead 200+, will make certain he hears about his shortcomings in spades. ;):) Hopefully there'll be some in the rink demonstrations next season.

The demonstrations will be in the form of hundreds if not thousands of empty seats. Good luck to Gus. Absolutely the right move. Maybe when he get's up to the big club he and Jimmy could pool a couple of paychecks and buy out Timmay!!:)

This team is not going to be very competitive next year at all. It's like watching a relative waste away of cancer. It's happening before your eyes and there isn't anything you can do to stop it. Chitty feeling.:(

The way that the University of Maine chooses to conduct its searches and hirings for adminsitrators and coaches now is a complete JOKE. There's no way that these processes should be dragged out over 2 or 3 years like they are now. I wonder if other colleges and universities across the country operate like this.......or is this just another effed up "Maine way" of doing things???...........

I had typed up a long analogy that would have brought me some more negative rep from wally, but I'll save him some time and just say "Yes."

Union's looking good. Watching these two teams just makes more angry about what Whitehead scrwwed up this year. He had better groceries than both theee teams.
