    Merrimack's lack of offense is catching up to them. If you get the lead on them then you have the advantage on them. I just think they don't have enough skill up front right now.

      Richardson is having a very good year out in the BCHL and he'll be 18 in a few months, so it may be a good move to bring him in early next year, though I just hope he doesn't have a tough time getting acclimated to HE like Straight did this year coming in a year earlier than expected. Richardson isn't big, and those guys usually adjust more quickly, so we'll see. Not sure what's up with Silk; he's got a few goals but is clearly not the elite player we all thought he would be when he committed. I do think the Achilles injury set him back as he's been on the lower lines since his return. Still think he can be a good player for us but a year in the USHL might do him some good. Definitely need to do something on D as Piazza has a bad concussion and who know's how he'll be next year. A wild car is Begert, as he was supposed to be pretty decent, but just clearly wasn't ready for prime time this year. Hopefully he can build some strength in the offseason and has been learning in practice. Either way, unless Matheson is the next Brian Leetch and assuming Domoulin is gone, we are going to be hurting a bit on D next year

        I know it's unreasonable to expect great things from a freshman, especially a dman...but sure would be nice if Matheson can be a difference maker from day one a la Dumoulin. Not saying he'll be as good from day one, but would be nice if he's an impact player right away.

        As for Begert, I know you're saying he was supposed to be pretty decent, but I really didn't get that sense when he committed. How many games has he dressed for? One? He seems like the ultimate 7th-8th dman.

          we were discussing how BC counts attendance/tickets sold and i did ask the athletic dept about bceagles.com saying the game vs merrimack was sold out yet the announced attendance was 500 less than a sell out, here is the response:


          As far as the game last week against
          Merrimack, it was a sell out. Unfortunately we can not control if those people
          who purchase the tickets actually attend the game.

          Thanks & Go Eagles!

          take a bow, Carmine. I certainly assumed that they used tickets sold (and i kinda still do actually) but this response suggests they don't

            It's odd cause there have been a ton of games where they list 7,884(capacity) as the attendance and you can't tell me every single person with a ticket showed up. That never happens.

                I think we all can agree Umass is the worst arena to visit but I've never seen a group of people unable to let go of their frat days and grow up at such a late age as those twits at Providence. And seriously, how do you walk into an arena with a 30 rack of Bud Light and not have it taken away? I've seen it multiple times there and it boggles my mind.

                The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                  Agreed. Seems like a new rule.

                          Seems to me the only "issue" at hand here is listing 7,884 when obviously not everybody shows up. Looking at the home schedule, there have been 11 games at Conte. Of those 11, attendance of 7,884 was reported:

                          -Home opener against Denver
                          -BU (2)

                          I don't think that's a coincidence. And let's be honest, while attendance may not have been 7,884 scanned tickets, it was pretty **** close and shouldn't somehow take away from the fact that BC gets the best attendance in the league by a wide margin.

                            Honestly, my guess is that for games where they report a capacity attendance, there were MORE people than capacity (probably between staff, etc.) but they probably can only report it as "capacity" ... 7,884.

                              You've always been more of a fanboy than me, Mr. P. It's just simple logic looking at the attendance figures. Even your own fans (claver/sterlippo) aren't largely convinced. We've given this much more energy than its worth.

                                That's what I always thought too. Obviously not every ticket is scanned but for the big games I bet it's pretty close and they add in press and other numbers (lux suites?) and they'll be over "capacity" and will list 7,884.

                                But by some (fanboy) "logic" the conclusion is not quite as obvious.
