Imagine Chris Kreider was on the third line? . 3019 announced in the building on a Friday night vs UNH and 2883 over in Agganis for Maine and BU. Very sad

    Wahlstrom on 2nd line. Problem is best linemate for him is probably Hutsko but Hutsko has great chemistry with his current linemates. He's not like Eichel, reputation of goal scorer first. I just don't see him getting into threatening positions. Sure he gets a few shots on net but to me he really hasn't been a factor yet. Needs to find some chemistry with someone.

    Eichel made everyone on the ice around him a better player.
    Wahlstrom needs an Eichel on the ice with him.

    Him needing an Eichel is probably a stretch but we're basically on the same page. He needs a guy capable of setting him up. He doesn't appear to be a guy who can create his own chances.

    That sounds like how Bellows looked for us. Had a great shot but rarely was able to create he space to take it. But I can't see him staying on the snide for long. I think he'll get it going, and it will probably coincide with the team getting hot.

    Anyone know what to make of Tortora leaving? Know he had penalty issues but thought he had a lot of potential. Looks like he’s headed to the OHL because his rights were just traded.

    Also with Tortora leaving, a bad start this and York decommitting, are others worried the last year and the beginning of this year are becoming a trend?

    I don't know, but I sure don't make anything positive of it.

    Last night was certainly a low point for me. I can see those teams in front of not great crowds, but it’s hard to believe they would play in empty buildings. Is there any way back for college hockey? I guess things can change quickly but it seems a long ways off. It will be interesting to see how the beanpot and HEA championships do this year.
    Absolutely. Maine and UNH were must see games. Full houses and a charged atmosphere. And forget about BU, those crowds would be bonkers. That all seems to have gone by the wayside now and it happened in a relatively short period of time. And it seems BC is far from alone in that particular boat and it appears attendance is down just about everywhere. I know college hockey has always been a niche sport, but it wasn't this much a niche sport.

    Looking at his history I believe it. Too bad

    I certainly believe it too. As soon as I heard about Tortora, I mentioned to a couple people that I would guess Wahlstrom wouldn't be far behind. Tough loss, assuming he is actually gone.

    Wasn’t Farrance added to a roster this summer?

    I mistakenly thought Tri-City was a Major Junior team. So I agree, very good chance he isn't really gone. I can't see him dropping back a level like that. MJ seemed to make sense, a la Bellows.

    Unless he and his peeps felt that league would allow him the best chance to collect point before the draft in an environment he’s most comfortable in perhaps.
    Only reason to run at this point.

    This. Projo reporter Mark Divver said his source told him Wahlstrom had no contact with Tri-City. https://twitter.com/markdivver/status/1065656293694849026?s=21

    Ryan Kennedy says Wahlstrom wants to move from BC but doesn’t want to go to Q

    Someone else tweeted aislanders can’t sign right now at 50 contract limit at moment
