      Terrific article about someone who has gained some maturity and has developed into a winner as a person, and a leader as well as a hockey player. For many of us, this gives us a great deal of satisfaction that cannot be measured solely by wins and losses or goals and assists on the ice.

        ..well said. Life gave him a second chance, nice to see he's made something of it far as education & sport he enjoys playing. With his upcoming graduation this Summer, it'll be nice to see him having landed firmly on his feet. If (when) he suits up for Winnipeg.. it'll have all been worth it.. ups, downs, all..

            Also, how about landing a goalie or two?
            Why is Griffin a long shot?

              The streaming video from down at Schnieder is atrocious,Just spent 10 dollars on this,on the other hand it again makes me so thankful for the website at NU and it's free!,whoever's idea that was should get a promotion (unless it's Roby)

              More injuries also,yikes,this team has had such poor fortune in that dept.

              Bright spots Ryan Belonger and Josh Manson's goals

              Looks like this game is in the tank,tomorrow is another day,and another game at home-Go Huskies!!

                    Spoke with another outsider of NU hockey today who thinks that all of the people against Madigan are nuts! Person is heavily involved in another D1 hockey program.

                    Lets see what next year's class looks like, I think things will start to turn next year.

                    If LaPlante was here coaching this team you think they would be better? No way!

                    Team is very thin on talent. I have said it all year, they suck!!!!

                    Stop blaming the coach, it such a cop out. Come to terms with it, the team sucks. Look at at the Junor and Senior class. Saponari and ferreiro, thats it. Pimm is a decent player. Thats all you have for upper classman. Playing 4-6 underclassman on D.

                    Wake up guys! Please stop *****ing about the coach, you sound like a bunch *******s. The team is no good.

                      OMG, Next years class is not much better Steve, trust me, and another missed year or two of HE playoffs will cost JM his job, Roy is gone after this year or next, as please he has no reason to stay, why? he can play in the NHL now! I guarantee it ! ND, BU, UML MC, NH and PC will be much better than us with no tested goalie between the pipes and again the HE playoffs will be a stretch, plus the following year CT who has raised some 3 million for hockey form boosters off the lucrative Big E success of the lady and men's BB teams will also be ahead of us at the get go. They are going to be the next great team in this league and will batle BU and BC before us, just like they did in 1986 when they hired NU BB caoch Calhoun and kicked the **** out of BC in BB for the next a 1/4 century. Mark my words! If Madigan makes year 4 I will donate both my BU and NU season tix to New England home for Little Wanderers. He is not the guy to win a HE championship and take the program to the NCAA tournament year in and year out. I am sorry, but Greg Cronin is the best pure coach this program has ever had and I played for Fernie!

                        Steve.. for every opinion you get like the one you mentioned, you'll also get the opposite from people in the hockey world. Anyone who 'cares' about the school has a right to question why we have a guy leading the bench without a single day behind the bench (prior to this stint).. in the last 18-20 yrs. Game & tactics have changed..the 'coaching' has passed him by.

                        It is a serious & legitimate concern. And yes.. I am more than convinced LaPlante would have gotten more out of THIS team.. including shot at playoffs, his first 2 seasons behind that bench. JM is a recruiter & a good one, fine.. then (as has been mentioned a 1000 times..), we also need a Coach for gm situations!!! Keep Madigan in the hockey operations..since he loves the program - just get us a qualified HC sooner rather than later.

                        We have an alum who was / IS qualified.. Peter Roby sought to build his bridges within the U.. and we have the current hire.

                        One more season.. fine, willing to ride out one more Mad Dog season.. that's it & this season ticket holder (and donor), will not patronize in person at least.. the hockey, until there is meaningful change!

                            What program? Comments like this hold no value whatsoever. Further, if the person is heavily involved in another program why would he know anything of value for our program.

                            Yes. The big leads going into the 3rd would have been avoided. We'd have at least 3 more wins, and we'd be in the playoffs. We'd also still have Gillies in goal and that ultimately would have given us home ice.

                            Team is young, but there is a lot of skill out there. There are teams with youth that manage to work it out. BU for one has just as much youth as we do. Are they better players? Possibly.

                            Who is at fault for building a bad team in college hockey?


                            If you want to go ahead and blame the players, go ahead, but don't expect anyone to listen.

                            College Hockey is not a sport where schools just look at their student body, go into the student center and randomly ask people if they know how to play hockey. There are no walk ons (or at least there shouldn't).

                            Someone is responsible for these players choosing NU as their college. They are the one who is responsible for the team's skill level. They are the ones who get blamed when it fails.


                            So please Steve, tell me who is responsible? Who is to blame for the skill level?


                            Is it the current coach who isn't recruiting good enough players? Madigan
                            Is it the old coach who didn't recruit good enough upperclassmen? Cronin
                            Is it the loss of players/recruits when the old coach leaves for the NHL? Roby (and Cronin)
                            Is it the lack of ability to close on recruits due to various reasons that probably could have been avoided? Madigan (and Roby)
                            Is it the fact that our coach had only a season or two of coaching experience(asst coach) prior to being hired? Roby
                            Is it the fact that our coach has spent the last 20 years as a fundraiser for the BUSINESS school? Roby
                            Is it the fact that a top rated, award winning, extremely experienced, HOCKEY EAST former head coach is available and waiting? Roby


                            The answer is simple. The fault is on Madigan and ultimately Roby.

                              I bet you are a real annoying person to know.

                              Best player on the team Roy Madigan
                              Saponari Cronin
                              Ferreiro Cronin

                              OK who else is good? Tell me again where the talent is? Rawlings, is a Cronin guy.

                              Madigan has 1 class in, it included 1 of the best players in college hockey Roy. He is probably going to leave, but is that the fault of the current coaching staff that there is no upperclassman that do anything. You have 2 players that produce out of the junior and senior class. I don't care how good your freshman is, freshman can't lead.

                              I am also curious as to how LaPlante would have prevented the 3rd period collapses? For a guy that also has no college head coaching experience you guys certainly think he is the Jerry York.

                              Deal with it, the team sucks. If you fire the coach, then you can count on that the top recruits out of next years class will take off and it will be another bare class coming in and will set the program back another year. Give him a chance! Also Madigan being fired would make 100% certain that Roy would leave.
