    Well that's just the thing...there will be no improvement next year with the goaltending we will have. It is frustrating that next year will be another wasted season while Madigan brings in his guys. Imagine the same crap from this season next year...now imagine it without KRoy and Saponari.

        How do you know that if you've never seen KRoy play?

          Just to be clear I was absolutely joking about sweeping Maine, just playing the role of an eternal optimist as a joke. I'm just hoping Roy comes back and with an experienced d core they can be a little better next year. The goaltending can't get worse so hopefully the d-men with a year of experience can somewhat compensate what we will lack in goal. I know the way of thinking that things can't get worse are not ideal, but unfortunately it seems to be reality for the goalie situation heading into next year, hopefully Roy or Witt can pull a surprise.

            Well..... the reasonable assumption is that KRoy didn't play this season because he wasn't better than Rawlings, agreed? Now, if it turns out that KRoy is the real deal, and should have played this year, doesn't that open Madigan up to even more questioning of his handling of the goaltender situation? Then, wouldn't you ask why he kept KRoy on the pine when CR and BM weren't up to the job? Wouldn't you ask how he could justify such still giving CR the bulk of the playing time? The Gillies thing was tough enough to swallow. If it turned out that you still had a better goalkeeper here and didn't use him? How could anyone not shake their head at that? But, like I said - the reasonable assumption is that KRoy couldn't beat CR out (for now).

              Maybe KRoy isn't better than him today, doesn't mean he could't develop into a good goalie.

                          With the current product on ice.. it is an attempt at least.

                          They (NU Athletics) know in all probability.. barring a 'Rawlings performance miracle' (which is an oxymoron).. season is over this weekend.

                            Pretty sure the students are on break, anyway I bought 2 tix, worst case scenario they get swept this weekend and I get too apathetic to go the game and I eat $14. Thanks for the heads up though. It'll be nice for the seniors to go out in front of a big crowd of BU fans.
