Perhaps the NZ rating of Nick Capone in particular, and most other prospects in general, are more accurate than "useless".

    The NZ ratings are useful for making general comparisons between prospects. Itís their detailed scouting reports which provide guidance on the strengths and weaknesses of a player.
    What was the reason for Capone to leave Maine and go over to UConn..? (was it he wanted to play sooner rather then later)

    Have read UConn didnít move Capone up to 2019-20 season - still a 2020-21 commit. The UConn blog wrote ďNick Capone is the first elite player from Connecticut to commit to UConn.Ē Heís from East Haven, CT.

    His stats dont jump off the page at me, though this very well could be a case of stats not telling the whole story, hence why he seems to be considered an elite recruit. The bigger problem to me is this is yet another symptom of what seems to be an epidemic of recruits jumping ship on Orono before they even get here.

    It cant be because the coaching staff is so dynamic and inspiring.

    Or, possibly, to have an outside shot at the NCAA's..?

    Not to blank on UConn, but when you think of it that way...my has the hockey gone wayward at Maine. (that is chances of making the NCAA's)

    @BHall What do you think of Maineís recruits so far this year? It looks like Breen is off to a great start but the other guys not so much. Can Langford get things straightened out or is he a lost cause?

    Would Christian Stoever make sense? Him and Merrimack just mutually parted. It seems like he would be solid enough.

    Also, defenseman Timmy Lovell decomitted from OSU. Mass kid. Even though he has offers from 3/4 Beanpot schools, and that means you probably won't land him, I feel like you should at least call him and get your name out there.

    Renwick stick handling...

    Not sure why he hasnít been playing lately for Omaha.

    I see Morrissey hasnít been playing lately for Lincoln.

    Seems odd Farrell is now playing in MJAHL after a good BCHL season last year.

    My guess would be that Renwick and Morrissey are injured. Maybe Farrell didnít like his new team or needed to come home? I know the mjahl isnít as strong but heís putting up good numbers.

    Maine got new recruit out of SJHL, originally from Montreal, QC...

    https://www.bombers.ca/stats/player/3806/46/donavan-houle-villeneuve

    He is evidently a fast skater and described as tenacious.

    Seems like a good one, has 20 goals in 25 games so far. I would imagine he gets a year or two in USHL before coming to Orono.

    I donít think he will since he is a 99. He will play at UMaine next season.

    Not me. I see BHall has Breen designated on an LOI. I hope he comes in next season. I also hope Morrissey and Renwick do. Also, I am assuming Gould and Osadick come in. This is a new avenue compared to how Red had been recruiting. More speed.

    Also, not sure about the status of Henry. But a good sign is he was invited to Canada west tryout camp.
