    Boston College Eagles 2019-20 - No Chit!

    Let's get this going in memory of Steve Gerrish, a friend to many here.

    Good things happening on the Heights. Jerry is in the HHOF. (Jack Parker hasn't made it yet ;-)). Good young players coming in. Cotton and Hutsko coming back. Lot's to look forward to
    for a change with no dark clouds on the horizon.

    Carry on.

    Congrats to Jerry. Being the all-time leader and a guy everybody respects is a good combination. Unless something changes, I doubt Jack will get in. Among the greats for sure, and an icon in the Boston area. But HHOF is another level. Perhaps if he had taken the Bruins gig way back when and had a lot of success.

    Jack has one heck of a coaching tree and the 6 Degrees of Jack Parker is pretty extensive, too.

    Florida gave Bobrovsky a 7 year deal...in theory that is great news for York/Ayers in that Knight should be here a while.

    IDK Pierre was fairly adamant during the draft, one year for him at BC then on to the pros. A lot of other factors at play though.

    Just like all the others, sign ELC, get paid for 3 years, then GET PAID.

    No idea what this team will be like. Cotton could have off-the-charts season. Hutsko too. Defense??????????

    Ya that was definitely interesting to hear. I just think one year would be highly unusual. And now Florida has no immediate need for him.

    I think the forward group could be pretty good if Boldy and Newhook are as advertised. Top line could be Cotton-Mattila-Hutsko. They have been a very good line. Boldy and Newhook. McPhee returns from injury and hopefully to his sophomore year form. Hope that McBain and McLaughlin take a step forward. And Grando and
    Rasanen can be good role players.

    Defense could definitely be suspect. They should have enough offense from the d but can they actually defend? Not sure on that one.

    Did something happen to Fivehole ? Sorry to hear if he left us ((

    New season and new hope. Nowhere to go but up after the worst season in a long time.

    Of course I do but that was like 2 1/2 decades ago after Len Ceglaski retired and the debacle with Milbury and Cedarchuk

    They didn’t have a winning record until 1998 after York rebuilt the program

    BU basically won every beanpot and drubbed BC mercilessly

    Imagine if Bill Flynn had hired York earlier ? But he said York was too young and inexperienced

    I have experienced BC program since the 1970s in their up and downs

    Agree

    Hopefully Spencer Knight can bail them out big time

    The defence just need to play a lot better than last year and play smart

    They will be ok, loss of Kim and Fitz hurt but they didn't generate much offense last season. Hard to predict what Freshmen will do but there is a good group of experienced forwards coming back. Only 3 months until first game, can't wait.

    What do you want me to say dude ? I am too lazy to write a long response when I could be hitting golf balls outside 😀 ⛳️ 🏌️*♀️

    Addition of new defensemen hopefully will improve our defense corp

    They miss the skills and physicality of a Santini or McCoshen or a Dumulin

    I sit in opposite corner of rink where he usually sits and I did notice in 2nd half of the season I saw him less and less and noticed he wasn’t sitting there a lot of games

    Before and during the game I would run into him or at some away games at Harvard

    We used to text each other during the game commenting on the game but it was great during the seasons when we competed on the weekly game predictions when it was going on the weekly USCHO game predictions contest

    I kind of miss that thread this past season

    My condolences to friends and family of Fivehole12 (Steve). I always found his posts on your threads insightful.

    But, please remind me who did the Milk Carton posts? I really liked those.
