With addition of Parker, my count has 10 recruits coming in this fall....plus 17 returning roster players from last year. Just wondering if my count is correct.? Recruits: 3 d-men; Bisson, Greenway, Kleiboer… 6 Forwards; Roy, Poisson, Breen, Drobort, Bruneski, Parker.. 1 Goaltender; Thiessen.

Unclear whether Bruneski was recruited as a dman or F, but his most current position was at D:

Parker is 21, has played 2 yrs in NCDC. Hock DB has him at 6'2" and 160. Hopefully he gains some mass if this is current.

Be interesting to see what Red has recruited for the season.

Have you seen him play? Can he move his feet. Or is he another big guy Red loves so much

From what I read he is more on the slender side and fast. He increased his point total significantly last year which I always see as a good sign.

He will only play defense at Maine.

This is all part of Red’s shock and awe campaign. We will be shocked he isn’t fired and in awe that he manages to stay employed.

Maine got a couple of commits today from Remy Parker and Perry Winfree. Remy is coming this fall and I think he’ll be a good one.

Only 20 PIM in 48 games too!

This USPHL article would suggest Winfree's also coming in the Fall:

Any thoughts out there..?

26, 27 or 30, they are still going to struggle with Red as coach

The more bodies the merrier I suppose. Cant hurt for sure if some players step up to get out of the pack. Might make better practices.
It could cause confusion if lines are changed alot, early on is good but 2nd half of season you want some consistent lines so they work good together.
We need a fire down in orono, dont see it. I suppose Red is getting some good naps in this time of year.

Yeah, this thread is essentially about warm bodies. Maine hasn't recruited any genuine talent since Red has been here. I'm predicting a PW of about 37 next year.

I hear you on the talent, short of that numbers seem to be an option apparently.

I have (finally) updated the UMaine recruit page and roster projection.

Link here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pEz6ZeLBgKc1YgcEha7PTYrs0p6MIzdujVgCh1uwnqY/edit#gid=1737200132

Link also in the signature of all of my posts, which i realize isn't often these day (**** paying job!). Anyway, as always Red keeps his roster management in shroud of mystery. Likely to be a little more roster juggling before August. Surprised to see scholarship money going to Winfree kid. Would have been nice to see that money go Needham's way and bring him in a year early....:eek:

You must've missed the memo that Binner left to go back home. Agree on Winfree, however.

Bisson coming in this season. Binner is gone pro.

Also, have to see where Richard is drafted in qmjhl this weekend. A top ten pick probably indicates he will go qmjhl, I guess???
