    Using that logic then Maine has a bright future too as they lost their last game to Lowell by one goal as well, and that game was AT Lowell, not a neutral site like TD Garden.

      BU played inspired hockey because of parker retiring. They get credit for that but there were no indications of them being good prior to the announcement (unless you want to hang your hat on beating nu).

      What does it say about a team that they needed that motivation? I'd be ****ed and left wondering where was this against harvard/nu earlier in the year.

          Excuse me, Egon, merging the threads is bad.

                I disagree. When I say on an upswing, I'm not referring only to the last game, or even the last two. Certainly, upsetting BC in the semis was a high point. But when I say an upswing, I'm referring to the 6 wins in 7 games or whatever they were going into the HE Championship.

                JD - trust me, I was ticked off during that horrible stretch. And BU fans know that winning two of those four against NU and Harvard, maybe even one, might have made the difference. More importantly, the team just played terribly and I do look at the team's inability to get out of it as the sort of epitome of why it was time for Jack to go.

                But BU had started playing well before he announced his retirement. Although you could argue the competition was weak.

                    This thread is a nice big reminder of how the people at BU enjoy mediocrity.

                    Not to mention that UNH fans would have a much better argument at that, with making and advancing into the 2nd round of the NCAAs and all.

                    The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                      Valid point on UNH.

                      Mediocrity sucks. I don't accept it and I certainly don't enjoy it. Bring on the new regime!

                          Best to all those seniors joining the professional ranks in the days to come despite your many inadequate skill sets described so well by Hoky. Steve Whitney, it was a pleasure to watch you perform over your four years...always demonstrating a desire to win and the grit of a man twice your size. Anaheim is lucky to have you![/QUOTE]

                          Patrick Wey just signed two year deal with Washington Capitals...another kid I loved watching play the game over the last four years. All the best going forward in your professional career. Who will be next to sign?

                            The key is will he develop. If he wants to play pro he will need to keep getting better and a new challenge will help get him there.
