    Re: Boston University 2018-2019 - Still Alive!

    If things stay as they are right now we have lost 4 players
    Two were sure to go all season and Bowers also but he had a poor year
    Farabee 2nd half performance put him more on flyers radar- Krys makes no sense

    The attendance and interest was down all season everywhere
    Maybe all the games available on line and TV hurts more than we think
    The hockey east attendance this weekend Fri 11,000 Sat 13,500 was encouraging

    Think coaching criticism is team not improving much during season and number of returning players who regressed
    Defense was strong point going in but played poorly defensively all year

    No clue but sure a goalie to be added for next year--Maybe a graduate transfer?

You're right, some very high shot totals in there and of course not all of those goals are his fault but 8 of the 16 first half games he was <.900. That plus having seen every game in person with my own eyes, he let in a larger than usual number of ones he'd want back.

    Fortunately he reversed that in the second half and single-handedly won numerous games and kept us in others that we had no business being in.
    Moot point now anyway, as he won't be back.

    The Turnover Machine is taking his talents to The Madhouse on Madison.

    ColinWilsonFan, did you watch this team all year? Jake had a spotty first semester.

    I have as well almost .... I think thereís a period of adjustment as a goalie till you figure out what you have in front of you when you arenít playing with confidence and you need to adjust you make mistakes .. to his credit he figured it all out and adjusted any trained eye could see his style changed over the year

    Add krys now to the mix and who else ? Come on reality needs to come into play here and bigger fear now about potential of decommits? Sometimes maybe not every job is good for everyone and people have to realize their strengths and what they are good at
    Players that leave are signing their ELC so they can get the clock started on burning that contract up.

    The Dallas Stars have signed goaltender Jake Oettinger to a three-year, entry-level contract. Oettinger will report to the Texas Stars on an amateur tryout for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

    The Philadelphia Flyers announced today they have signed 2018 first-round draft pick, Joel Farabee, to an entry-level contract, according to Executive Vice President & General Manager, Chuck Fletcher. The contract will take effect at the start of the 2019-20 season.

    Dante Fabbro has decided forego his senior season with Boston University and sign an entry-level contract with #preds. Big news for Nashville as their 2016 first-rounder could have become a UFA in August 2020 if he played another year at BU.

    That's good. We need more passion. I couldn't make the 4:00 p.m. start Friday because of work commitments and it's tough to tell on TV because you almost never see more than the first few rows, but my guess is if you ranked the schools in order of the most fans, you would get this:

    1. UMass
    2. Northeastern
    3. BC
    4. BU

    Am I wrong?

    UMASS brought more fans than the other 3 combined. NU turnout was quite disappointing. BU turnout not unexpected given time and declining interest, and admitted surprise (from at least some fans I know) that they advanced to the Garden. Expectations were that low among some BU fans who have been pretty loyal for many years that they wrote the team off after the regular season.

    You did not Understand ... yes they leave early when they get to Burn a year of their elc immediately as I suspect will be the case with Fabbro ....Oettinger farabee and krys are all playing on ATOs for rest of season which DOES NOT burn a year of their elc .. which is exactly my point

    Jake may not since he is a goalie, but the other 3 will see time in the show next season. May flame out, sure.... but they will see time.... even Chad

    Oettinger did an ATO because those are common for goalies. The others probably due to being late in the season and situations in the franchises so they can have a chance of making teams at the beginning of next season. My point is they are trying to do whatever path is quickest to get rid of their 3 yr ELC.

    Oettinger and Fabbro will burn a year no matter what next year; I believe as they are not "slide eligible" as they are both 20 already. Farrabee appears to be slide eligible and would need to appear in 10 games to burn his first year of his ELC.

    I think.

    Regarding Krys, from The Athletic:

    Once a promising top prospect, Chad Krysí journey to the NHL seems steeper than when he was drafted nearly three years ago.

    Krys is the forgotten Blackhawks defenseman prospect in some ways.
    if you walk with Jesus, he's gonna save your soul, you gotta keep the devil way down in the hole

    A ton of this is due to it being NEW and exciting at UMASS of actually being relevant. Its cool and trendy now. NU is the same thing thanks to their beanpot last season. They are successful and its new and fresh. BC/BU is used to it and realistically have been struggling so that doesnt help. It was clearly UMASS fans by far with NU a clear 2nd. BC/BU were tied for last.

    Again ... you donít understand ...the goal is to burn a year of elc and that is 3 years no matter what .. in the case of oettinger krys they sign and play jisbyewr but donít get to burn a year of their ELC .. it doesnít make sense in a lot of not most cases to leave a high end D1 program to go play in the AHL and if they leave and they donít get to burn a year of elc like for example mccavoy did or Eichel even JFK then they usually stay the ATO for oettinger is same for the others that arenít officially burning a year of and want to play ... I suspect farabee isnít going to play so no need and I suspect chad has same del so as not being able to burn a year of elc ... until next year ... I would be surprised if Fabbro doesnít get the chance to burn a year of ELC

    They may have benfitted as well to wait a sec and not marry the first girl who laid them
    JFK had a pause and saw the Bís dress him a game to burn a year
