    Hockey East: Preseason All-Milk Carton team

    The preseason hockey poll reminds us all that the start of yet another college hockey season is almost upon us. While Boston College is predictably ranked #1 to the start of what promises to be an epic season, not all teams will be as fortunate. The rise and fall of the other 57 teams (and penn state) in their race for second place will be at the mercy of many variables including which unheralded freshman step up to the plate and which returning players will fail to live up to expectations. Much like in life, where we are uncomfortably reminded of the great distance between the haves (Boston College) and have-nots (UNH) of this world, so to it is in college hockey, where some teams, known as the wills (like Boston College), will continually experience great success while others, will play the part of the will nots (like, um, again UNH), and will drink from the cup of fail once again.

    A final reminder, we do this list not in jest; though much jesting will ensue. But as a service to our less fortunate friends whose expectations might need a little tempering. The more we honor your disappointments in advance, the more likely we all are to reach more realistic expectations (and by we all, I actually just mean you). All that said, over the course of a few days, Pinhead Nation proudly presents the 2010-2011 team of will nots

    F - Corey Trivino, BU

    *******https://img153.imageshack.us/img153/7025/milkcartontrivino.jpg********

    The scoop: “It appears you’ve been living two lives, Mr Trivino. In one life, you are the 2008 top prospect for the Ontario Hockey association, totaling 156 points over two seasons in the OPJHL. You are the co-rookie of the year and you even help your landlady carry out her garbage. The other life is lived on Comm. Ave. where you go by the youtube alias ‘puckstar’ and have broken every team rule we have a law for. One of these lives has a future and one of them does not.” Trivino, known to BU pedo-bloggers as ‘the one’ will begin the 2011 season the same way he ended the 2010 season – not dressed. Which is, coincidentally, also how he appears in many a fanboy’s dreams… but we digress. Anyway, after 10 goals through two years, we wonder if anyone will even notice his absence. After an injury derailed his jaw-dropping 4 goal sophomore season, Trivino found himself in hot water after a series of off-ice escapades resulted in his own indefinite suspension as well as the teams’ shocking dismissal of co-conspirator Vinny ‘Sayonara’ Saponari. Right on schedule, the former decorated junior A star has turned into a colossal bust of NCAA proportions. On the bright side, during his time out, Trivino will now have plenty of time to refine his gangster rapping skills. (Missing since 8/4/2006)

    I think you just gave Rogie a heart attack!

    I really miss Eric Gryba. The dude was a staple of the last few ones that were done before Pinhead Nation's long hiatus.

    Re: Hockey East: Preseason All-Milk Carton team

    moving right along...

    F - John Henrion, UNH

    *******https://img813.imageshack.us/img813/1471/milkcartonhenrion.jpg********

    The scoop: The most recent bust from the US national development team, Henrion’s stock has been in a free fall since they day Ryan Bourque de-committed from the once vaunted recruiting class the two shared. The comparisons stop there. Henrion managed just 19 goals in 58 games during his time with the US team, but that was apparently enough for Dick Umile to give the former junior Bruin a whistle over to titletown. Henrion, a native of Holden, Mass, responded with just 3 goals in 30 games for the mild cats last season. Hillbilly faithful will point out that Henrion’s goals each came in games against rivals BC, BU, and Maine – including one in the third period of a March 5th game against BC sparking a 3 goal outburst that clinched the national… er… regular season title for Umile’s club. But we will note that Henrion then finished the season with no points, only one shot on goal, and a minus 2 over the teams five game playoff run. Currently undrafted, Henrion will now look to parlay a series of postseason failures into an NHL free agent contract like former New Hampshire teammate, and fellow junior Bruin alum, Bobby Butler. Fun Fact: this same storyline was rejected by TV executives as the pilot episode of a show called 'its never sunny in hillbillyadelphia' (Missing since 12/10/2007)

    Henrion never had much to begin with. I'd say Paul Thompson is deserving of a spot since he just rode Butler's coat tails all the way to an early end to the season.

    There should have been an All Milk Carton team for Hockey East's 25 year anniversary...

    Thompson created lots of his own opportunities and capitalized on many.

    From where I sat (next to the blueline) in Albany, I thought Paul Thompson deserved the 1st or 2nd star the night UNH beat Cornell in the NCAA quarterfinals.

    Can't say I am happy to see a Catamount on this list, but one can hardly disagree with the selection

    Someone needs to disagree with one of these selections for this thread to reach its full potential. Someone with no sense of humor or perspective...

    Do you know anyone like that? H***D*d ?

    So far the selections have pretty much been spot on.
