    If that's going to happen, these guys gotta get their heads out of their azzes and decide to play hard. Scoring 3 goals twice against Canisius isn't something to be cheering about. If that's what they want to sit back and reflect on at the end of the season, fine, but these guys gotta start playing like they care about competing and winning, and the game isn't just something they have to get through before the parties start.

    Expected a lot more from this team in Red's second year. A lot more. Not necessarily in wins, but just in how they play the game.They've taken a huge step back in my opinion. Where's the grit, the hustle, the intensity level?

    They had to play these games and they won them. As bad as Canisius was, they were ahead of Maine in the rankings. Now to take whatever momentum they have and carry this to Amherst. UMass is also ahead of Maine in the rankings and this should be another sweep.

    At this point I think Maine will take a win over anybody, in any way they can get it.

Seems like maine makes every goalie they play a vezina winner. I never want maine to lose, but am having a hard time watching what seems like uninspired hockey.
    They are crap. Don't know how to create offense, or good scoring opportunities. No creativity at all. Schloggers. Basically disappointed with lack of progress.

    Reminds me of an older Vermont team that can't play defense.

    Whoopee doo, they beat an awful team twice. Canisius is as bad a D1 team as you will see, **** they made Maine look good. Should have scored 10 in the 2nd period alone. miss the net all night long, your best players aren't playing like your best players and the D is still suspect. Romeo looked ok, Cam Brown was good and as was Vesey.

    They(Maine)have not been consistant or good for quite awhile,not just this season...no stretches of winning streaks that make you notice...and if anything this seasons squad just does not have the tenacious approach like they did last season...this TEAM is not good...plain and simple...and many areas need to be fixed,defense in their own zone,goaltending that steals games and scorers that can finish...it isn't pretty and it will take a few more years to start to see IF it will go forward during Gendron 4 years rebuilding/retooling process. Painful will be the more likely word for this season and next more times then not(imo).
    Even though they aren't as good as they were last season, there's still a lot of hope that things will turn around and we'll be really competitive in the next few seasons. It's too bad we've hit rock bottom and stayed there for too long, but it was tough competition the first part of the season and with any luck they can end the season closer to .500. Hockey is such a fun sport to watch, but it's worth noting the progress that the Maine Women's Basketball team has made in a few short years with their new coaching staff, and it's fun watching the Men's Basketball team evolving with their newly found team spirit behind Coach Walsh. I hate to be a diehard Maine fan, but it's a great time to be a Maine sports fan knowing that all of our sports teams will soon be very competitive in their leagues. Can't forget to mention the strides the football team made this past year either with their young team. The hockey team will turn things around, and the struggles endured now will make it that much sweeter for those that never lost the faith.
