    He won't be missed. He was never anywhere near being a good D-man at this level, IMO.
    I thought he had the tools but never really put it together. At this point I’m still much more worried about the offense.

    Yes I know Greenways coming in, but lets see what he brings to the ice....plus Thiessen coming in will get some time [maybe]...but will get the practice time in and will learn the game from Swayman also....I do agree with you that Swayman will be playing his last season at Maine.

    Both sides of the ice should be a worry.....

    Yup.

    And that's been the issue for Red's entire regime. Maine hasn't done anything very well under Gendron.

    Sway is certainly better than average, but no other facet of this team provides any real glimmer of hope. I'm saving my travel-budget for football. That's certainly Maine's flagship right now.

    I actually think he has done a decent job when it comes to recruiting goalies and dmen. Swayman, Michel, Keeper, and holway were all good. There have been a number of others who were decent enough and Bub was very good for a walk on. He hasn’t had anywhere near that level of success with forwards.

    This isn't any big surprise, Binner had all kinds of academic problems.

    Right, it's easy to forget sometimes that these kids are students and athletes...

    He had big problems on the ice, too. Made more bad decisions in his own end than any other Maine D-man in recent years. I wish him well, but his departure is addition by subtraction.

    Former CT Governor Dannel Malloy now in charge of UMaine. If he supports Maine Athletics like he supported CT athletics, you are screwed. A millionaire who is completely out of touch with anything beneath his bottom line. And whatever you do, do NOT call him Daniel. https://www.wmtw.com/article/new-uma...puses/27684556

    My Auntie studied nursing at USM. And her husband was coast guard. This was 50 years ago. This is how old when we knew the nurse program was great. So I am confused?

    You mean we weren't screwed before? Chancellors office is the biggest waste of money in the UMaine system

    Maine football ranked 4th in a fcs preseason poll. Im guessing they play better when no one thinks they will be any good

    I actually was at dinner last week with a kid who's going to the Newhouse School at Syracuse and who is a complete college football junkie. When I told him that I went to Maine, he described last season better than I could have, and told me that the incoming class is a good one. He mentioned past players (Josh Mack among them) and current ones as well (Ferguson, a couple of DB's, transfers, etc.)

    Sure, there are people on here who want to see all of Maine's resources allocated to the hockey program, while it's is clearly going nowhere... Football is the better choice for the short term, at least in terms of exposure and success.
