    Rover, perhaps the biggest indictment of parker is that on paper, you guys still get great recruits.

However, it should give the kids good experience playing in a high pressure situation in front of a (usually) full house.

          IMHO the lack of recruits, poor effort, and no hardware except for as you say some inexplicable Beanpot wins had me wanting Parker out by 2001. IIRC '98 season was all Drury, '99 was horrible, '00 was all DePietro, '01 was horrible, '02 may have been also. That's when it was past time for a change.
          In '02 we were 25-10-3, won the beanpot and lost in both the HE tourney and NCAA tourney to Maine (who was runner up in the NCAA championship game).

              Sleepings ok.

              Course things ever get tough I can glom onto a team from a place I didn't go to school. And for kicks I'll bandwagon jump onto the best team going in the middle of an historic rum of championship.

              That'll help me

I know some older BU and BU alums who put the Beanpot up there equal to a national banner.
                    And to follow up with that...here are some interesting factoids:

                    TOTAL NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS:
                    West: 48
                    East: 16

                    MOST CONSECUTIVE NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS:
                    West: 12 (Michigan 1955 - Michigan State 1966)
                    East: 3 (Cornell - 1970, BU 1971-72)

                    NUMBER OF TIMES EAST HAS WON MORE THAN ONE CHAMPIONSHIP IN A ROW: 2 (In addition to above, BC 2008, BU 2009, BC 2010)

                    So for you young fans, he's right. It was a bigger deal because it was almost impossible for an Eastern team to win back then, since the Western teams were almost all Canadians (and older, also). There was virtually no inter-league play and not much "out of region" recruiting. In addition, the academic standards in the East made it improbable that they could admit some of the players that would regularly get into the Western schools. And you have to remember, there were almost NO American players in the NHL until the 60s. Not that the games weren't close, but it just seemed that the Western teams would pretty much just turn it on whenever they had to. Occasionally a goalie from an Eastern team would stand on his head or they would just play a perfect game and win one. But those times were few and far between.
