How many five minute power plays does Cornell need to win the ECAC? Oh well. The rest of the league is rooting for you. Go Bruno!
Embarrassing way to go out. Too bad.
Edit: To be clear, I donít think the score does our effort justice. Not sure what the shot attempt totals are, but Iíd wager we took more than Cornell. Their defense hasnít allowed much to get through, but itís not like weíve been completely outskated. Theyíve just cashed in on their chances, and we havenít. So, the score is embarrassing; not the effort.

Nice run by Brown. Galajda was the difference today. I thought the Bears hung with Cornell.

Congrats to Brown on a terrific season.
Congrats to Brown on a great year. There are light years between this year's team and those of the past. See you next year.

Congrats to Brown on a great year.. their system honestly looked pretty good, they break out of their zone really well... I watched the game from Section 3 and the scoreline did NOT reflect the play. Brown had big chunks where they were really controlling play, they just lacked that touch, that clutch finish.. I thought Brown got railroaded on a couple calls, too..
I looked at the box score and we out-attempted them 79-38 (59-23 at even strength). If someone had told me that before the game, I wouldíve expected a big win. But hockey is a cruel game, and Cornell jumped all over us right away and never let up.
Iím cautiously optimistic going forward. Some of the younger guys were impressive this season, and weíll return an exciting upperclassman nucleus of Giuttari, Nieto, Beaudoin, Berger, and Stillwell. But make no mistake about it Ė Tommy Marchin and Max Gottlieb will be missed. Still, I think the program is inarguably in a better place than it was at this time last year.
One thing that will be interesting to watch over the coming weeks: Brendan Whittetís contract is now up. Does Brown give him an extension to try and continue the momentum? The overall W-L record under BW has been bad, but heís been dealt some really tough cards. I have no idea what to expect, honestly.
It is nice to see some positive comments about Brown for a change. I hope that such positivity continues. I stopped posting on the Brown thread 18 months ago as I was so turned off by the negativity that permeated the thread. Looking forward to seeing more positive posts.
I certainly believe Brendan has earned a new contract and a multi-year at that. This year's play with a great freshmen class and what appears to be a strong incoming class bodes well for Brown. It would be a mistake to pull the rug on Brendan now. Four Final fours over his tenure speaks well.
He has seen player decommits at a late date through no fault of his, players leaving due to scholarship issues, injuries and , coaching defections. Program appears to be poorly supported by the AD and the administration. Maybe now there may be change in attitude.
Most important at least to me is that the Brown team to a person represent well the University. This has been true through all Brendan's tenure. I have been fortunate to see many Brown alums in the AHL play here in Albany with the Devils. They worked the crowd and the community well, always giving their time for the kids. Even visiting Brown alums, Harry Z, Bobby Farnham, and Marc Naclerio when in Albany would spend time with the children of Brown alums and others before boarding the bus. Jeff Buvinow has done a great job as the ast coach of the local prep school Albany Academy. Brendan has had a major role in accomplishing this.
In sum, looking forward to a great 2019-2020nseason with Brendan in charge,
Brendan Whittet and Brown agreed to a three-year contract, per Mark Divverís Twitter. Very excited to see how he builds on this past year! Iím also pleased that Brown gave him three years, so he gets ample time to prove heís the guy for the job long-term without locking him down forever based on one good run this season.
Seems like a good move all around. Looking forward to next year.
Some news from Mark Divverís Twitter:
ďBrown is bringing in a big freshmen class next season. Unfortunately, that means two players cut to make room. Word is they are Nolan Aibel & Joe Maguire, both of whom will be seniors next year.Ē
That must be really tough for those two guys, but ultimately I think itís a healthy sign for the program. A big freshman class is never a bad thing. Best of luck to Joe and Nolan, whether they stay at Brown to finish their degrees or transfer elsewhere (maybe a NESCAC school) to use their final year of hockey eligibility.
Hoping to see big things from the incoming freshmen.
