    Well, if you would have spoken up and said "I'm a dipwad who's going to write down everything you say and then post it on a college hockey message board to make myself seem important" he would have chosen his words more carefully.

    The obsession continues...you just can't resist. Pretty pathetic that you can't just talk about college hockey and what happens at the games. All your hypotheticals mean nothing to me. If I was unsure about what I heard, I wouldn't post it. I heard the ENTIRE conversation very clearly. It was not meant to be private. I was not eavesdropping. If you don't believe me...couldn't care less. That's your right. But a great scholar such as yourself should be able to realize that I wouldn't make something up as random as this.

    This is a college hockey message board where people discuss all things college hockey. I simply relayed what I heard while at a game, hardly anything earth shattering. But of course, I'm really not surprised by your position on this...I'll take it with more than a grain of salt. Bottom line: if he didn't want it out there, he wouldn't have said it to everyone around him. I know, I know...it's my fault though for reporting it. Unbelievable.

    As for needing to be accepted, I have no idea what you're talking about, but I do know it's just part of your schtick which includes an unhealthy obsession with where I went to school. Sad.
    Here's the part where your lack of a proper education hurts you. Lets say one of these happened while you were eavesdropping: 1) You didn't hear him correctly, 2) you only caught part of the conversation, or 3) you're just looking for attention and blatantly misquoted the guy. Under any one of these scenarios, you as a person not party to the man's conversation could have gotten something very wrong. As you're an anonymous person posting on a message board, if this gets back to the guy he doesn't have the option of either correcting you or beating you senseless for this breach of common decency. That's what makes it wrong, JD. Not illegal, just wrong. The fact that you can't see that speaks volumes about you.

    Perhaps your need to inappropriately bring someone's name into this forum is part of a deeper need for acceptance since you drew (literally) your degree from a sub standard institution? I mean, if someone overheard a Westfield St parent blasting that school's hockey coach I wouldn't want that person named out here either....

    Im going to go out on a limb here and say that the players parent did not intend for his words to be repeated in a forum for the entire online college hockey world to see. You should NOT have taken that liberty.

    Well, Goldie...at least Rover agrees with you. Not that that says much at all.

    Since JD is a dope however (or even worse, a Westfield St grad) his label was entirely accurate.

    Hey, I'm just a fan, and one with more years than I'd like to admit rooting for UNH. I'm quicker to admit I know little about on-ice talent -- comparing Player X vs Player Y in terms of potential, agility and skating ability, who has the better hands, who staying in position or who strays, etc., as I have no hockey background other than being a longtime fan. I leave that to other posters on these boards who have a deeper level of insight into the game.

    Anyway, I don't feel bad about this year, and feel good about next year. Sure, the drop in power was steep and largely unforeseen. Those late-game collapses (and OT losses) against several teams were painful to experience. But I like the fact that several freshmen played a lot of minutes this year, and will (or should) continue to get better. DeSmith has emerged as one of Hockey East's best goalies. TVR was steady all season. I always liked to see Downing and/or Thrush on the ice. Goumas and Sorkin are hard workers who can score, Knodel looks solid (and is big,) I expect Burke to have a better year; I think we missed Speelman this season, and hope he is a terrific senior next year.

    If the hard work and determination that eventually developed this year carries into the next, I think UNH will be entertaining and competitive. And that's why I'm a fan.

    To add context, mr. Agosta asked the guys behind him what they/the other fans think of Umile. They introduced how umile is too reliant on his seniors and that's all mr. Agosta needed.

    Anyway, the biggest issue with UNH is clearly talent. Do you guys think Umile can still recruit the talent necessary and/or develop that talent?

    I would say you all have to be pretty encouraged with how your team played this weekend. I'm rooting for UNH to be one of the flagship schools in Hockey East, but is the talent on the horizon?

    One thing I noticed Sunday was poor dump ins by UNH. They were way too hard most of the time, resulting in easy retrievals and transition for BU. Add in not enough speed to get after the poor dump ins and I think that was a major factor in BU coming back and winning.

    Finally, almost every single line change in the OTs was a mad scramble for UNH. Just no continuity in making the proper play at center ice so they could have time to make a good solid change.

    ****, couldn't have said any of this better myself. You can probably leave poor Goldie alone now though. It might even be Mr. Agosta himself...Sleazy? LOL. Mr. Agosta introduced it to everyone around him and clearly wanted people to know. That ain't my problem. He is biased against Umile because his son didn't get any PT last year. He made it perfectly clear.
    Well, was he shining a green laser in Umile's eyes or something? (for those who don't understand, check last week's installment of "another crazy hockey parent" in Mass.) Hey, I don't have a problem with what you said. Does it reflect badly on Agosta senior? Meh. Agosta junior? Hardly. Will Umile play Agosta less next year as a direct result? Highly unlikely.

    No harm, no foul, in my opinion.

    2. If not for the sharing of opinions -- as well as observations, which J.D. did in the 1st clause of his 2nd sentence -- these boards wouldn't exist.
    3. His opinions and observations are his business, no matter what you or others may think of them. Your telling him it's none of his business is, in truth, none of your business.

    again...when all of the best players on your team outside of one senior are in their first or second season, the track record generally shows a few of those guys will have big seasons in the near future as they become upper-classmen. this is not different than in years past except that in the past UNH always had better upper-classmen than they had this year and could wait a little more patiently for some of those young guys to come along. The Jr and Sr classes on this years team as a whole were abysmal. we have been spoiled in the past. unfortunately not every freshman or sophomore can come in and score 30 or 40 points right away...but fortunately a lot of them have as a Jr or Sr over the last 10 or 20 years.

    Completely agree. The grit and better play late is very encouraging.

    The concern is goal scoring. In past years the field was deeper and the secondary scoring was more obvious. Currently the guys on the team don't have the track record for high offensive output. Puck in the net is the only major hole I see, and it is a big one, can't win games 0-0.
