It's been a really fun experience for us over the years, both at SLU and Clarkson... (Well, not so much watching Maine get thumped at SLU during Red's opening series in Canton, but we don't expect much from his program anymore. We could both grasp that he was the wrong Skipper even after his first 2 games, even when he still had Timmy-talent to work with... )
Yet we'll go anyway, but our expectations are very low, as has been the case for 6 years.

One of my favorite hockey weekends ever was following Maine to Cheel and Appleton on consecutive nights long ago. I wish that they'd try to schedule that trip again, but what's the point of anyone scheduling Maine anymore?

Pearson was pretty good, but not anything like an All-American, and he was the pick of the litter. Fossier was a right/place right/time guy as a Freshman, but he's found his level. i could go on and on regarding the rest of them, but you get my point.
Red has been an abject failure, no if's or but's.

All great men are dead and I'm not feeling well.

And stay off the lawn!
He was second team all hockey east. There are roughly 16 forward for each team X eleven teams. So I divided 6 by 176 total players and that has him at 97 percentile.
I think that is outstanding. I realize he didnít win HE player of the year or win the Hobey... but being 97 percentile is outstanding in my book. And I think most people would agree.
When he was renewed for doing nothing, that screamed to me that Maine would never eat his contract. Still haven't figured that renewal out.
Not at all worried about his recruits de-committing, in any case. He never brings in any real talent, anyway. Let them go to Bentley if they prefer. (If Bentley wants them.)
Maine is a total re-build at this point. My guess is that Red will suck for 2 more years, then be put out to pasture. Then, Maine will suck for years to follow. Red was a disaster of a hire.
