    Tough to say bias there when Maine finished the game on a 6-on-3.

    Nah, but it would make a great "The U, Part III"

    Joking aside, great to see Lomberg is planning on catching on with another program. Even greater that it's not a Hockey East program, because he's one of those guys who is a pain to play against.

    Do the Hurricanes even have a hockey program?

    I agree with you. Red is being challenged by the same issue that Tim faced. Recruiting. So far Red's players may be just as talented as Tim's, but he is not getting enough of them. Hayes rookie of the week in HE by the way.

    And for all the griping on here about Timmay! who else bothered to write the university president or speak to anyone in the athletic department about replacing the coach? No, posting here, MBR or joining a Facebook group don't count. An actual email or phone call to someone at the university with some say in the matter. Anyone? Bueller?
    I did.

    First-half analysis. One graph just says it all:

    This team also needs to toughen up mentally. It needs to develop a swagger and put teams away when it has the lead. It also needs to start fast and not keep having lackluster first periods.

    I was never a huge TIMMAY fan, but not a detractor either. I mean, really, look what he did up until 2007 with that team, six times in the tourney, twice in the championship game, and twice a loser in the semis. What more could you really want? What burned me on him was when he chitcanned Grant and Guy, and then that awful loss to Michigan St. in the NCAA semis, when TIMMAY had the brilliant notion that Keenan Hopson would make a good defenseman.

    And then the story I heard that, after going up quickly 2-0, TIMMAY told the team to sit back and conserve their energy. Gave up four straight and lost, badly. That, on top of losing the 2004 game in Minny after taking the lead and then sitting on it, only to lose, was it for me. Without Grant there, TIMMAY was just overwhelmed, not fit to be a D-1 coach. After that, I joined the five internet nutcases.

    I don't know if Red will find success as a D-1 coach, but I can't say he's not fit to be one.
