(and if it were a defenseman shocked would not even begin to describe my emotions)


Honestly, I think at this point it would be almost disrespectful to the team and coaching staff to leave them in that kind of bind. Unless the player that was to leave would be going straight to the NHL. And as good as he is, I don't think that is Warsofsky.

If he is a stand up guy (as described), he stays, Captains the team, and gets his degree rather than bailing on them now.

Plus, the Blues have plenty of depth on defense and they just signed Notre Dame's Ian Cole. I doubt Warsofsky would get a shot in the NHL next season. Like everyone else, I'd be shocked if he goes.

Based on what he recently said after the Maine loss it looks like at least he is staying:

“I’m happy at BU right now,” said Warsofsky, a fourth-round selection of the St. Louis Blues in 2008. “I think the coaches are excited about what’s coming back, so we’ll see how that goes.”

Any official work on C Cohen or Shatt yet? I'd love both those guys back.

I have to disagree. It's only March. If the Blues wanted him and he wanted to go, I don't see how anyone could fault him. When you recruit good players, you have to be expect this stuff to happen. Now, if he bolted a week before the opener, that's a little different.

What do you mean official? Like a newspaper? Newspapers have a correction page, 3hock doesn't:p

JD's right. *spit* ;) If he's offered a contract, I don't blame him for going. BUT, I think he stays. Let's be thankful he isn't 6 feet tall.

From the Av-BU-lanche Web site:

Avalanche Signs Zach Cohen;
Senior Forward Led Boston University In Goals

Tuesday, 03.23.2010 / 11:37 AM / News By Colorado Avalanche The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed free-agent forward Zach Cohen to an entry-level contract. Cohen will report to Colorado’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.

Cohen, 23, just completed his senior season at Boston University (Hockey East), tallying 25 points (15g/10a) in 38 games. He led the Terriers in goals and finished sixth on the team in points. The Schaumburg, Illinois native was second on the squad in both power-play (5) and game-winning goals (3).

“Zach is a player who will add depth to our system as we move into the future,” said Avalanche General Manager Greg Sherman. “We are pleased to have him join our organization.”

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound winger was a member of Boston University’s 2009 NCAA championship team, scoring a goal in the NCAA title game against Miami (Ohio). He finished his collegiate career with 52 points (31g/21a) in 130 career games.

It's probably time for Avalanche fans to become BU fans and vice versa. Just so far apart.

I've already decided they are my Western-Conference NHL team. :D Unless they're playing the Rangers, I tend to root for them.

I play as the Avs on NHL 10 all the time now. I scored 6 goals with Yip in one game against my friend. It was a proud moment for me. Very proud.

Wow, can you imagine only losing 5 games all year and NOT being a # 1 seed. Yikes.

'77-'78 Terriers were 27-2-0 going into the NCAAs as #3 seed because they lost the ECAC semifinal to Providence. But all worked out well, with a 5-3 win over BC in the NC game.

Are you referring to the 7-2 victory in WBA? I think that's the only time I've ever seen two defensemen get hat tricks in the same game. Schaeffer and Whitney.


Upon further review you remember it correct. I did at least get the year right, and Niagara was the following home game, and also a blowout, but only one defenseman scored. It was Curry's NCAA debut, in relief, though so that is probably why it stuck in my head.

I remember that game very well. I also tell all my friends here at Yale how a real hockey school rolls by citing that game :)

Beat you to the punch. Been an Avs fan since 1995 :)

The Wings have always been my second favorite team after the B's. This BU-Avs connection has not been easy. At least I already had the Bourque Cup to help open the door to the Avs, though.

So is Zach going to graduate first and then head to camp this summer? I've loved the Avs ever since Chris Drury went there out of BU and Ray Bourque went there to win a Stanley Cup a few years later. They definitely are my second favorite team behind the Bruins, although I root for the Rangers whenever they aren't competing with the Bruins for a playoff spot.

The Avs blog I just logged onto says under the signing of Z Cohen:

"Taking one more step towards making BU an official affiliate of the Avalanche"

Boston University Avalanche!

No..... how about the Colorado Terriers!

I like that a whole lot better.

It would be awesome if Zach and Shattenkirk both made their NHL debuts next year playing alongside Yip.

And I'm pretty sure I'd find it equally as awesome if Colby struggled defensively in the AHL all year too.

I LOVE that game. Play it for a few hours a week on the 360.

I thought I'd outgrow video game hockey (I'm 36) but I still haven't yet.

Haha. Sad I have to retire this year's BU team on NHL 10 so soon. :(

Ah yes, I've seen you on HF when trolling the Avs board. :D
