    They were aggressive, but it didn't seem like either team was being (nor needed to be) aggressive in any particularly skilled way. In other words, simply skating at the BU defender with the puck was enough to spook them into a forced drop pass or a rushed clearing attempt. Any team with marginally skilled players (read: any D1 team) can accomplish this.

      I'm going to guess that there hasn't been much fun at practice since Saturday.

          Looks like the league took care of that for Parker in adding a game suspension...

              The Bu SID tweeted Parker had already decided to add a game suspension before the league handed down theirs today.

                Do we know exactly what the extra game is for? Is it for the spear? I really can say I'm not a fan of adding on to a suspension for a single infraction that is already addressed by the automatic DQ.

                If this is cumulative, however, I'm ok with it. Looks like he had a 5 minute major for slashing at 19:56 of the third period on Friday night and then the 5 minute major and DQ for spearing on Saturday night. Plus all the diving he's been doing. Hopefully he will clean things up. Is it fair to say he's been the aggressor in some of these instances?

                I'm really surprised BC didn't get Noonan with all these slashes and dives - he would have fit right in!!!! You'd think Parker would pass on a player like this.

                  By no means am I saying every BU player does this, but with Noonan...you can clearly tell he looks for trouble out there. He is the instigator/aggressor in most instances.

                      He added a game to Privitera's DQ, why wouldn't he for Noonan?

                          Yes he is. Most flagrant was with Roy on Friday night. All Roy did was almost capitalize on a nice rush, and Noonan treated him as if he had whacked the goalie late or something. It's sort of like when a hitter gets thrown at for doing nothing more than playing well (e.g. hitting 3 home runs in a game).

                          I don't mind physical hockey, but I don't like Noonan's approach lately. Hopefully, recent consequences will have their intended effect.

                            Why wouldn't he? Have you not heard of Jack Parker's Wheel of Injustice? Give it a spin. Let's see.

                            You would think Parker would have booted Sabo after kicking in a kid's face considering how quickly he canned Glass for studying. But nope.

                            I don't think you can apply logic to Jack's senile ways of handling things.

                              Well, you could choose to apply his logic from three weeks ago, or 10 years ago. Either way, that type of goonery needs to stop. Never mind how stupid it was situationally for Noonan, a captain, to take that penalty, be it a 2 minute trip of a 5 minute spear.

                                The Noonan suspension reminds me of years past when Parker use to sit an upperclassmen, who wasn't playing (or behaving) quite up to par, a week or two before the Beanpot. That use to get the player back in line. Maybe this will work on Noonan too, especially being a local kid.
