“even the goalie is not that high on the talent list”
Did you hit your head on something? Go back and do a little work. Watch some game replays. Figure out where the 1,2,3,4 and 5 holes are. Then come back and tell us Swayman is not that high on the talent list. Go on...go do it.
With a reasonably good team in front of him, a solid defense and some consistent scoring threats, this goalie becomes top 5 in D1 college hockey. Unfortunately Sway does not have any of that.
Does it strike anyone as odd that Maine has no games this weekend? 9 days between the UConn game and the BC series at Conte.
Seems Red helped uconn along with the loss Wed, uconn got a good win against Northeastern tonight.
Went to BU at BC last night. The 1st period was ‘meh’ but periods 2 and 3 were very good hockey. To state the obvious, the talent level on these two teams is exceptional. I’ll bet that no less than 8 of the players on the ice last night will play NHL. Patrick Harper handles the puck and directs play at a level above most of the others on the ice. But can he play in NHL at 160 lbs. Given the talent level, it is surprising that BU is not winning more games and not ranked. They had a loss and a tie at Orono early in the season. Point being that Maine is plenty capable of playing with and beating these teams. IIRC, Maine was 5-1-0 against BU and BC combined last season.
I maintain that the loss vs UConn Wed night was a bad loss that unfortunately effects the 2nd half of the season and therefore the entire season. Maine was 3-0-1 to start the second half (incl. a win vs USA NTDP) and could have made a little noise if they won vs Cavanaugh & co.
I was among the last to call for Tim's head, but I eventually did. Turns-out I was wrong.
Now we have a completely inept regime, and I'd be happy to have TW back, yesterday. I have no doubt whatsoever that he would have performed much better than Dead Red over the past 6-7 years, or whatever it is. (Feels like forever.)
