    I stopped reading when he posed the idea that UNH would win a tournament trophy.

      UNH has won the Hockey East tournament as many times as BU has in the past 15 years. (That'd be 2 times each) They've also been in the Hockey East Championship game more than BU in the past 15 years (5-4).

          this is such a head scratcher that I had to go back and look. Who would have thought that?

                That's easy. bu is worse. Lots of flash and publicity. Competitive but certainly not dominant.

                  And UNH has been to more NC games. Of course 1-0 is better than 0 for whatever.
                  Expectation has the encumberance of truth while hope lives its own life, wild and free.

                    I think it is a combo of both. BU has been worse. But UNH is only known for the rip your heart out end of seasons. But to dramatically collapse you have to actually have some hope of being really good. BU has pre-season flash and limited results, UNH is steady all year and can't finish.

                    There is the potential that with the BU flash they are underachieving.

                    The converse is UNH overachieves and the collapse is not a choke, but just a return to (a talent) reality.

                          Re: Hockey East Summer Predictions

                          More Predictions :

                          Standings :

                          UNH : Great Special teams, lose little offensively, solid tending and a never ending supply of turtle necks have the WildCats in the #1 spot

                          BU : Decent team will have to study more and party less without Parker around anymore which means a solid team becomes an even better team

                          ND : Offensive juggernaught comes to HE and finds out that an entire season of BC's/UML's/MC's/BU's is way harder then Bowling Green and Western Michigan.

                          UML : Lose little offensively and return Hellebuyck... ? is how hard does the soph slump hit... is it Muse bad (2.2 -> 2.72GAA) or Millan bad (1.94 -> 3.15 GAA)

                          BC : Loses alot including a proven goaltender, but they still have Gaudreau and York and that may just be enough.

                          MC : returns a similar team to last year and lands in a similar spot in the standings

                          UVM : a good recruiting class will give the Cats a boost in on ice performance... if they can improve their special teams

                          PC : See UML but without the offense to make up for Gilles sophmore slump...

                          UMO: lose little offensively meaning the same guys that scored 77 goals last year are back. However.... Timmay is gone so things are looking up...

                          UMA : weak defensive and offense was propped up by an oddly good PP, another year of Micheletto and its all the same except the PP falls from 18.5% to 12.5%

                          NU : Freshman goaltender on a team that gave up 104 goals last season , a slew of players to replace, and Kevin Roy isn't Gaudreau...



                          ++ Disclaimer : A.) I don't know much about most teams recruits so don't hold it against me and if you like share some insight, B.) this is for entertainment purposes so if you regularly have to pull the bunch from your panties and you in general keep a box of tissues close by then move along Sally, C.) Yes UVM is probably too high and UML is too low... if you don't like it make your own ****ing list.

                            Clay Witt will be the starter and he is a junior. Also, Northeastern only graduated like three players and had one player leave early so not that many to replace in that regard compared to the droves who left the past two summers. They'll get some guys back from injury on defense who missed most or all of the season. As far as Roy and Gaudreau, Roy is as good offensively. Put him on a line with Mullane and Whitney and he has the same numbers. Gaudreau has a better all-around game though.

                                Clay Witt the senior, who last year had a 4.86 GAA to go along with a career 2.97 GAA will be the starter? Clay Witt who has started 6 games in 3 seasons is going to be the starter... I'm going to disagree here. Madigan will bring in a freshman to man the net, if he doesn't he should be fired or chased out of the arena with flaming pitch forks...

                                This is from a NU website article dated 2 days ago...
                                "The Huskies look to fill 12 gaps from the 2012-13 roster, including the departures of six seniors (Drew Ellement, Garrett Vermeersch, Steve Morra, Chris Rawlings, Vinny Saponari and Robbie Vrolyk). Cam Darcy and Joseph Manno left the university mid-season to pursue alternative opportunities while Dan Cornell, Jake Hoefler and Ben Oskroba will not return to this year's club. Karlsson will not return after signing a professional contract with Ottawa in late July

                                As far as Roy and Gaudreau, Roy is as good offensively. Put him on a line with Mullane and Whitney and he has the same numbers.
                                I don't think so...
