  • Re: Boston University 2012-13 Season Thread -- Part II

    By the way did anyone notice in the BHB article that Parker has apparently given a similar warning to Noonan?

      That debate will go on and on... even so, with or without cages, it is ridiculous that he cant seem to control himself after being benched / suspended and then given fair warning about not letting it happen again.

            Perhaps Coach should have brought Mom in to discuss Alexx's future BEFORE suspending him. Nah, much more fun to shoot first, ask questions later.

                The quotes from Twitter about him going home to be with his family are odd. Does this kid have zero interest in academics?
                Considering that he was not drafted by an NHL club, he should have an interest in earning a degree. Unless his hockey goal is to follow Wesley Myron's career path to the ECHL.

                It is also pretty clear that the door is not closed on him returning next season. Maybe some time on the sidelines will do him some good.

                It is also interesting, but not surprising, that some people criticize Parker for apparently not doing anything about the lack of discipline, then criticize him when he does something. The bottom line is we only know the end results, and unless we are part of the team, we don't know all of the circumstances that led up to it.

                  Noonan hasn't been the same player since was given an "A" on his sweater. Perhaps that should be removed for undisciplined play.

                    While I agree, he, unlike Privitera, has responded well (knock on wood) since being suspended. He's certainly not been kicked out of any games since, and I don't remember any real dirty and unnecessary hits. Hopefully this continues.
                    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                      Can I get a recap on this melodrama?

                      As much as this stinks for BU fans, at least the rapes have stopped.

I can't imagine him ever making anyone even feel uncomfortable when he's sober.There are plenty of players in my time covering the team who have looked at me differently or flirted with me or the like. Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

                            Does anybody recall a similar "suspension for the remainder of the season" from Parker? The fact that he has not been kicked off the team must mean something in terms of Parker's sentiment toward Privitera and his behavior.

                            While I am disappointed with Privitera, I agree with the move by Parker. Especially given that he had apparently told him that he was on his last chance. Maybe it's just because I watched very closely as the whole play developed. It is disturbing to know now that he fully knew what the result of his actions could be and he still decided to respond to the hit by taking a run at the Harvard player. It had to have been a full 10-12 seconds from the time he had been hit until the time he hit the guy back. That's a long time, plenty of time to think about what you are doing. And as I said in a previous post, he kept looking at the bench as he was skating up ice, seemingly looking for some sort of command or response.

                            I hope for his sake that Alexx can right the ship, decides to stay with the program, and his brother arrives next season.

                              Actually agree. Would be a different game if they took off the full cage.

                              The fact that noonan gets a letter as a jr pretty much sums up the state of the team.

                                “I don’t know if he is the problem in the dressing room,” Parker said.

                                So he's saying there is a problem in the locker room, but he doesn't know who it is.

                                “His problems were on the ice. He was taking stupid penalties and being undisciplined. So I have no idea. I think he is a well-liked kid on the team.”

                                How does the head coach not know what goes on in the locker room or if the players even like each other?
