    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).

    positioning... hunching over in the crease moving too far left to make it back to the right ---over and over and over. (I just deleted about 50 lines of answer, but positioning is all i need to say, and that is on Jean.)
    I'm not there anymore, back won't take it so I'm on the side in a chair back. I agree on the playing small part. I don't think the staff has the goalie they want yet and they may never get that person,? With all the other issues I see, haven't paid as much attention to goalie play other than they aren't going to steal many games for you.

Now the goalies have to look forward to Ray Jean getting them to the next level and I gotta believe that Montgomery and Standbrook had a better goalie in Morris than Ray and Red. And unless Guite can turn his coaching around, players will want to be trained by Guite as much as they will want to be trained by Ray Jean... and keep going elsewhere.

    Agree. There will be no Nugnes this weekend or at all this season is my sense. Unless the current two guys go on the DL.

    Well if there was ever a time to see Nik Nugnes play in goal,this would be the weekend...if not then most likely he does not see the time in the crease this season.
