    Re: Boston College '12-'13: Gaudreaubey Baker

    First, lets get the complaining, whining, and excuses out of the way:

    Minnesota's first goal should never have been called a goal. Ridiculous. Refs obviously gave Minny a huge advantage in power plays. BC being without two regular upper class defenseman really hurt(s). Playing that many frosh D is a problem, just look at the way Bjugstad embarrassed Sullivan. Pathetic. No Gaudreau.

    Now, the credit:

    Minnesota is really, really good. Impressive depth. Physical. Serious top end talent. Bjugstad is a stone cold beast. Just look at the way he embarrassed Sullivan. Impressive as heck. Wilcox looks legit. Really strong performance by him last night.

    I'd love for BC to get another crack at Minny in the NCAAs, but to have a legit shot against them, they'll need their full roster, their "A" game, and Milner will have to match Wilcox save for save. That is all doable, but Minny at the top of their game looks to be a tough mountain to climb this year. I certainly couldn't see them winning 8-1 again, but they appear to be the better team from top to bottom.

    I'm a little late on the congrats to York as well. Classy coach, amazing what he has done at BC since he arrived. I miss the early to mid '90s.

    BC was completely outmatched last night, but that's bound to happen throughout the course of the year. Take the old fashion beat down and move on. No excuses, as both teams were missing players.

    BC has had a good run this year, but as we all feared in the beginning of the season, their lack of depth will be their demise.
    Yeah, really wish that he didn't go there. It was a nice win, but for any fan that actually pays more than casual attention a frozen four win still means a tiny tiny bit more than a holiday tourney.

    agreed on the depth issue, honestly upfront it concerns me more than on the blue line

    coming into this tournament 50% of our goals have come from the 1st line (last 3 years from our top 3 goal scorers: 43, 46, 37). Take out your leading scorer and it’s no wonder you have issues putting the puck in the net.

    Right now you can make a lineup of the bottom 2 lines (of players that have played nearly all the games) of: Dyroff-Smith-Sit & Silk-Spiro-Brown and those 2 lines would combine for: 4-7-11, about .67 points per game.

    This team doesn’t have the talent of the last couple of years offensively but they need the secondary scorers to step up. Of those non-Gaudreau sophomores, no one has stepped up yet. Linell: 2-3-5, Sit: 0-2-2, Smith: 0-0-0 (I really like his game and it’s very valuable but 0 points in 16 games!).

    This is exactly what worries me. Yes the team was waiting for this one and really went out to make a statement, and handled it very well. BC obviously didn't have the same motivation for this game as the Gophers. But can the gophers keep this going, especially if there is another meeting in April? Hope it will be interesting.

    That was tough to watch. Good thing this game was before my new year's resolution to drink less takes effect.

    Late congrats to Jerry York on setting the record. I'm also happy it got good coverage in the local media here in the Boston area as its quite an accomplishment.
