    hey... you are forgetting MY namesake, MaineFanInLA... he was nutcase number one!!!
    I certainly posted pictures of dead canaries in the coal mine a long time ago, and other than BobF and 93 Champs/downbytheriver/voteForJeanHayBright, not all that many were completely pro whitehead.

    I really can't wait until he has to hire a new football coach at Miami. It's going to be a delightful nightmare.

    It would certainly help if Gendron got a top goaltender commitment. If he is going forward with Romeo and Morris......then Maine better start averaging 5 goals/game. Also.....takes time to recruit great players......they all commit to BC, BU, Minnesota, etc when they are 14 or 15.......so those kids in the 2015 & 2016 classes were already gone.

The next 2 recruiting classes will tell the tale of does Maine go forward or stays mid-pack or back of the pack in Hockey East. He has a very tough job ahead of him(imo).
    Well we're sitting 2 pts out of dead last. UConn is ahead of us in HE. So there's nowhere to go but up. Like Wally said the next couple classes look OK but nothing that's going to vault them to the top of the league IMO. You are right. He's got a tuff road to hoe.

    Recruiting will tell the story. Right now it looks ok but certainly not great. But until one sees how he puts them together it's hard to know.

    Sure.

    I totally agree. I think I posted the math on this for add'l revenue last year. And as far as addressing the "problems" that may occur, perhaps a consult with the Agganis folks would be prudent. They don't seem to have any problems. I've been to 3 games at Agganis and have never witnessed any drunk and disorderly behavior.
    Lowell sells beer, but as was previously mentioned about Agganis, they have cup holders and individual seat backs too. As someone who doesn't drink, the only issue I ever have is when we get the kind of people who have to have a full beer in their hand every second and are up and down 5 times a period. Aside from that, no issues. And I think you're really underselling the revenue it can bring in over a season.

    In Tim's second season on Dec. 15 the team was 13-1-2 soooo not a lot to analyze there besides the pairwise.
