    Re: BC gearing up.

    And yet I remember recently being told by several people, quite a few times, and very emphatically, that BC sucks! Are you questioning their analysis of the situation?

    I can only assume he meant closest competition in Hockey East??

    Well, BC does play them more for relevant hardware than they do vs. BU. Perhaps Parker should put down the Jack Daniels and get working on improving his 1 good season a decade clip that he's been running on since Jerry showed up down the street!

    Honestly most BC fans would rather have the HE Tournament. Coming in 2nd place would not be a big deal. Vermont did beat BC once this year but UMass plays BC tougher. It would be sweet playing BU again in the post season. It's possible we could play them 2 more times, HE Tournament and NCAA's.

    A good season a decade is at least consistent. BC, however, has been very inconsistent. Going half a century without a national championship. Then picking up three in a decade. Very inconsistent indeed.

    I'd rather have both

    But ya, if you're only gonna win one...obviously the tourney. I'm certainly not looking past UMass. While they aren't winning games, they've been very competitive with some good teams down the stretch. UMass won't be a cupcake like Michigan Tech is out in the big, bad WCHA

    As for BU, wouldn't you much rather see poor old NU end their season?

    I'll take playing BC two more times this seasons, as it would likely mean that BU beat BC in the HEA Tournament to meet them in the NCAA's. :-D

    Well since BC isn't in Boston, maybe it is closer to UHN.

    Add in the Beanpot title & I don't really see a need to even play out the rest of the season. Duh! Winning!

    IF BC doesn't win the national title this year, the 2010-2011 season will be a disappointment. Defending national champs with most of last year's team back. Should be a slam dunk

    Sure I'll play you guys 2 more times this year. BC matches up well this year against BU. You get the excitement and the rivalry going again of two bitter rivals

    Have you seen North Dakota play at all? I , of course would be disappointed but no one is ever a slam dunk in this thing.

    Sure it's always nice to see BU lose, but after watching those 3 games, starting with the Beanpot, NU scares me more than BU. NU played all 4 games tough (2-0, 7-6 OT, 7-7, 1-2) Right now, this year, we have BU's number so far.
