    According to all the hype it won't matter. He'll score at will.

      Red will probably have Shore, who may be our best defensive forward, on the ice every time Eichel is out there. Win or lose it should be a great night with the 99'ers back.

        If we don't win the first period we won't have a chance. These kids ought to be flying after the pregame celebration. This could be a memorable nite at the old barn, nice article in the BDN on the 99 NC team. Should we have waited and done this when UNH came to Orono

          No matter what, it has to be a D pairing with speed. If not, they're toast.

          I've seen them (BU) three times at Agannis this fall. The kid is almost as good as all the hype. And there's a ton or two of hype.

          Ma#1ne Hky is absolutely right. This is a much improved BU team over last year's sheet show. 50% of it is Eichel, 50% everything else. O'Connor has been very good in goal. Not a fluke where they are ranked.

            It'll be the first time I've seen them this year, but going on the numbers alone, looks like BU has about an 80% likelihood of winning.

            I will watch until things get ugly, but I'll absolutely have a Plan B in place.

            (And I hope I'm wrong about that.)
            Does Plan B include lots of alcohol?
            What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                Yes. (And Plan A does, too.)

                    Fire RED. We are 3-7. Nothing has changed. We are not headed in any Right Direction. IT's M.O.T.S.

                      Sorry, but other than that horrible turnover by Swavely, and then his equally horrible play at the blue line to try to stop him, I thought this was probably the most solid effort Maine has put in all season. They continue to play like this, and they should win more than they lose.

                        That's fine, ..... and about the same thing I've been hearing on and off for 5-10 years now. BU is a very good team. I get that. The difference between winning and losing in this league is marginal. I get that. We played pretty good. Ive heard that. Bad teams lose close games all the time in Div 1 coll hockey. You are what your record sais you are, 3-7. I could replay many of these comments I ve been hearing and they are the same things I heard under the Timmay era. How long do you want to keep saying the same things? Explain to me whats different with this current team?

                          Nothing is different, the talent still isn't there, Did you expect Red to **** out recruits?
                          I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

                            One guy who could be on the team has nine points in his last four games in the most competitive jr league in the country. Administration has really helped the cause a lot It's hard for me to take a loss like this, the guys in '99 were absolute heroes and for them to have to watch that rubbish has got to be tough to take. Red needs to get a couple guys in next year who absolutely hate to lose.

                              M.O.T.S.O.S. Don't think Red has a handle on his
                              players. Cast of characters not jelling. Why isn't Leen on the first PP with Shore, with Hutton on point? They put up points last year when playing together. Hutton and Reilly cant play together. This matchup holds back on Huttons offense. Hayes has taken too many very costly, game changing penalties. Its Reds job to right the wrongs. That's what hes being paid to do. Correct the problems, and lets start winning these close games. Pecarraro has to use his teammates more and play with his head up, making passes to open man going to net. It'll make him an even better player.

                                Many posters on this forum ridiculed and insulted Tim. Many of them maintained it was all about on ice coaching. The talent was there, but was being mismanaged. Now the team has some of the old players and a few of Gendron's. It appears at this point it might be more than just on ice coaching.
