    the only thing that is the same between lake whit and the tsong are they are located in crappy areas.

    same designer doesn't mean 'same'... donald ross designed wannamoisett & pinehurst 2 and they have a number of differences.
    a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

      Santa brought me one of the throwback jerseys they wore on Friday night. Never had a BU hockey jersey before. Looks like I have some new duds to wear to the games! It's sweet, but not a sweet as my dads official #6 Parker jersey. Either way pretty cool of Santa.

        He only played half the game. Check out the highlights (Tuch's fist goal is filthy.). Be sure to pay attention at 2:25 of the video. Sophomore Captain?

        I think The Zlax 45 is nuts. Agganis is much nicer than Tsongas and the Whit. Nicer "fit and finish" and better sight lines.

        Merry Christmas Terrier Nation. I hope Santa brings us a full and healthy roster for the BC game on the 16th.
        It Happened!!!!

            Just quoting the architect when I toured the facility during its construction.

              I think the "bones" are very similar among the three. If memory serves me right from the construction tour, the architect made the bowl at Agganis slightly steeper to improve the sight lines. Agganis also clearly went with higher end seats / other finishes than the other two.

              I do wish there was more "open space" and fewer luxury suites.

                I'm not an architect but it would seem to me that you wouldn't want the open space to turn the concourse into a bar room at the expense of the luxury suites

                    Hardly, Mcdavid hasn't played to 2 months

                      I'm sure that is not ideal from an income standpoint, but that would actually be a good thing. I think the arena is lacking in "gathering space" where you can stand, see the game, and chat with friends who might be sitting in other sections.

                        I totally don't get what your issue is here ericredaxe. I don't think any arena with the exception of the Whitt has that. And if you have a ticket to the game, why aren't you in your seat watching it? Agganis does have standing room areas, limited though they may be.

                          First time I saw McDavid play. Didn't seem to me that injury hampered him. I can see why he is hyped - he can fly out there and incredibly skilled. A couple observations:

                          1. He looks closer to 5'11" than 6'1".
                          2. His game reminds me of Patrick Kane but with more of an edge.

                          Not sure who is better, but they are somewhat different players - Eichel the big skilled power forward and McDavid the explosive jitterbug. Eichel's speed I think will stay with him longer since it is the result of the technique of his long powerful stride whereas McDavid's looks to have a lot to do with his young age. Different way of saying that Eichel will be just as fast at 32 whereas McDavid won't.

                          By seeing McDavid play once, I think who is number 1 depends on what type of player the NHL front office wants more.

                            Eichel is a great player, and tons of organizations would kill to have him, but I would not take Eichel at the expense of Mcdavid.
                            Only his 2nd game in 2 months, timing is probably still a bit off but he looked good tonight.
                            So did Eichel against Finland. Sweet pass to tuch

                              I always have liked the Whitt and Dartmouth's building, but recently spoke to a coach who disagrees.

                              He thinks it takes the hometown "strollers," as he called them, up on the mezzanine, out of the game. I see his point. You may still be watching the game, but you're not as engaged. He wants his fans in their seats, creating some energy.

                                Eichel is a better player
                                The Canadian hype machine will promote but he is not a better player. The more and more NCAA guys take over NHL, his status will pull back. Great player but Eichel us bigger and better.
