All this said, I don't see Red being fired this summer with one year left on his deal. The real question will be if he gets an extension after next season, or if they decide to move on.
Do we want to take a look at the dorms at both universities?
The locker room? The cafeteria? Need I go on?
It’s more than just the location. There’s a reason why a lot of in-state students chose to go elsewhere.
The entire campus needs to catch up to other universities.
Halak on his head. So goaltending in Boston is strong. Bruins now mirrors Maine...
One thing about location, if your winning and playing for something it isn't hard to find, but lose/lose/lose and dole out excuses, and guess what nobody knows where it is or cares and that has happen to the Program in Orono.
Maine has dropped from 22nd to 32nd in the pairwise rankings after the loss since I checked last which was after the UNO series.
Could be a game changer in next few weekends.
Great quote by Red.
“The bottom line was we didn’t score enough goals and we gave up too many to win the game. It’s as simple as that,” Gendron said.

As a coach he had a way with people that was special. I happened to be in the rink once during a practice at the time when Grant was still with Whitehead, Grant was on the ice alone with a group of a dozen or so players showing them a situation skating move. What struck me was that he had 100% of their attention. What a teacher.

All great men are dead and I'm not feeling well.
A Margarita! in every hand and another Margarita! in the other hand!

You need to be able to sell your program regardless of where it is located. Dynamic coaching and a recent tradition of getting kids to the NHL would help. Modern, fancy facilities would help. Great academics would help. A vibrant campus life would help.
Maine doesn't really have any of those things to sell right now.
We could just start cheating again.
this is the same maine team weve seen for last 8 or so years Cellar dwellars very little talent even the goalie is not that high on the talent list or he would be playing somewhere else
He (very generously) chatted me up for the entire intermission, and it was so easy to recognize his hockey acumen, and why guys wanted to play for him.
One of a kind, and probably as much a reason that Maine ruled the roost for a while as was Shawn.
Those were the days.
