    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Seems like his play has improved this year. Maybe a year in juniors and then to play (hopefully) with his brother in 2017-18?

    That's what I am hoping for.

    And this:

    7. Much of BU’s heralded recruiting class is here. BU could have five guys drafted in the first round this year. The second-best of the group may be Penticton defenseman Dante Fabbro. He creates tons of offense from the back end. He has been better than Chad Krys to this point.
    It Happened!!!!

    JD Greenway was at the Feb. 20 BU-UNH game at Agganis and indicated his interest in playing at BU. Offense much improved this year and PIMs cut in half. BU certainly needs a 2nd D for its 2017 class to go with Farrance.

    You obviously don't actually watch Fortunato play if you honestly believe that. His greatest value is his ability to pass the puck and break it out of his own zone. He is undersized but he plays well positionally and has a good stick in the defensive zone. Oh yeah he was T10th in points scored for Dmen in the conference this year but yeah he has little value.

    New recruit - Matt Quercia. Looks like he is a LW from Andover, MA, has played for the Jr Monarchs. I can't decipher the different levels. Remparts pick in the 12th round. A '99 birthdate, so 17 years old, so must be at least a year away...

    Re Quercia: This is fun reading about him visiting the Remparts last August - must be some sort of auto translation that is pretty horrible. But it mentions he dreams of playing for BU, and mentions the Bloomington Thunder of the USHL.

    I've watched every game Fortunato has played at BU. The guy cannot handle a one-man fore check. He consistently struggles, every single game, the moment a player enters the zone. He is horrible defensively and is almost always out of position. I would refer you to the game-tying-goal at UNH this year as a perfect example.

    I repeat, a defenseman who can't play defense has very little value. You must be new to BU hockey if you don't understand this. Everyone who sat through the 07-08 season knows that defensemen who don't play defense have no value to the team, no matter how much offensive potential they might have (and I use that term loosely here, since Fortunato can't even bother himself to put the puck on net). I hope Fortunato improves as much in his own end as Shattenkirk did (and Cohen sort of did, some of the time). I have little hope though, since he did not improve at all from freshman to sophomore year.

    I am guessing that until you are on the staff, most fans will defer to Quinn, Albie and Young on that one

    This is just asinine. Sure, he's absolutely struggled at times, mostly because of his size. But to say that he can't bother to shoot the puck tells me that you did not pay any attention this year. His freshman year, yes, I'd be surprised if you told me he attempted 20 shots all year. This year, he was much more aggressive. Still, he's not my favorite player and definitely has a lot of room to improve. But you're just talking nonsense here.
    Go BU!

    Ok, we can defer to Quinn ... who started benching Fortunato in tight games in the third period in the last half of the season.

    He shot the puck seven times more than Greer did for the season. He's supposed to be an offensive defenseman playing in an offensive scheme driven by the four offensive defensemen on the team. That's not good.

    No he didn't
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    He was second behind only McAvoy in assists for a dman. He isn't a natural shooter but seems like he was making some pretty good decisions out there and is effective offensively. He could shoot more though and I think he will as he gains more confidence in his shot throughout his career. His shot was much improved from freshman to sophomore year and Quinn said he was working on it with him as well. I don't think anyone is saying he is the best dman ever but to say he should be cut and has little value is ridiculous. He would be a top 4 D on any other team in HE. Maybe Top 2. He may be 5 or 6 next year for BU but that's because of BU's depth defensively.

    Do you also think the US shouldn't have taken him to World Juniors last winter?

    Nice interview. Especially as we reach summer, i.e. "Are they coming?" season.
