A true fan would be here all year watching the team and supporting them, and yes criticizing them when they need it, but they would be here.

    Well 48 hours to a Maine game and very quiet. I am looking forward to the game and see how they respond up in Maine on Senior night after a lost, be a good test for DeSmith going into the playoffs. I am not ready to write this team off come playoff time, knowing it will be a huge challenge, but we have all seen stranger things. Like to see a win and hopefully get the 6th seed and a little momentum going into the playoffs .

    When UNH wins an RS as they've done, I dunno 3 or 4 times, everybody says it's a meaningless trophy. When UNH finishes 6 or 7, well that's "nothing to get excited about." I'm not saying 6th or 7th is anything to write home about but you can't have it both ways

    I'm encouraged with how UNH is competing right now and obviously the pressure is off. I disagree with you about the bottom half with the exception of maybe UVM though. The tournament is BC's and BU's to lose and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if either team loses it.

    People who watched this team back in October and November should be happy with 6th place because, back then, it looked like they would find a way to lose just about every game that they played. UNH is not talented by any stretch compared to teams in the immediate past, let along those of 10+ years ago. However I found encouragement since the first of the year in the way they competed in most games. Frankly, they are not talented enough to force their will on other teams. But they have solid goaltending with DeSmith and an improved defense which makes them competitive in just about every game they have played in the last two months. Of course, with their lack of scoring punch and dismal road record, it is hard for me to see them knocking off anybody in the quarterfinals. But I have a bit more hope than I did two months ago, that's for sure. At least I have a reason to go to the games.

    As for next year, I'll worry about that come October. Cheers!

    And, yet, UNH with 99 G (3.00 GPG) is still 6th in Hockey East. So, with 34 G by seniors, I do not see that as a catastrophic loss of offensive production going into next season. Gotta like what Downing has done as a freshman, and if Speelman can come back, I do not think that offensive production will be the biggest concern next year. It seemed to me that it was just as much defensive lapses and inconsistent goal tending that led to many close losses this year. Perhaps Sorkin, Gomas, or Downing can break into double digit goals for the season in our last game against Maine next weekend, although a win would be much better.

    FWIW, ESPN rumor mill says that the Bruins are considering trading for Daniel Winnik (among others)

    I say whatever position brings us to play UML. (And having said that, also remember the adage about being careful what you wish for...)

    Realistically, though, the mere fact that we made the HE playoffs has matched my hopes/expectations for this season. It would be good to see us play somebody at the Garden, but with a dismal road record, this year's bus won't get us that far, methinks.

    Yeah, I know. But, that was back in October. Milner was sensational that night, DiGi and the D-men not so good.
