    a wise man once said... (when he called me a minute ago and asked), whether there were a chance that Shore's performance is related to the cheap shot he took in the UNB game... (when the penalty box door Michael Shutted his knee in a horrid leg check fashion)

              Watch the third period again. UHN players wanted nothing to do with that puck, they got it on their stick, and just dumped it into the Maine zone. Where Metcalf went., picked it up, and started the Maine attack back into the UHN zone. Over and over again. I saw that happening, and said to myself, "no way Maine loses this game".

              More talent, Jason Krog, yada yada. No way they outplayed that Maine team.

              A few years later, it happened again, only this time it was Maine constantly dumping the puck into the other team's end. Playing not to lose. TIMMAY hockey. We all know what happened then, don't we?

Your comment by the way is credible. I do think this team will improve and get some wins down the stretch (unlike last year's team which "tanked"). Gendron's recruits are no better than Tim's, but I am a patient person. I am even willing to give him two more years on his 4 year contract. I recognize the many obstacles involved with college coaching. Having said that, it only took Norm Bazin and Nate Leaman one year to turn their programs around.
                    No, Tim was vilified for saying its hard to recruit to Orono. No one said a word about Gus leaving early, Purcell leaving early, Sweetland leaving Early, we all know thats part of the business
                    I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

                      To be fair, he did get a bit of crap for that, but that was because he kept bringing it up repeatedly, to the point where it felt like he was just making excuses. He kept talking about Purcell leaving early like four years after he'd gone.

                      Lomberg gone may or may not be having an impact on this team, but you'll never hear Red bringing the subject up.

                        Here's the question - If Red had been coaching either of the two Timmay nat. title game teams, or any of the other NCAA teams, espec. the 2012 team, would he have won any of those games that Whitehead lost?

                            We will know the answer to that question if Gendron ever gets the team to a HE title game or NCAA play.

                              The game in St Louis for the Frozen Four was one where tragedy struck before the game, and not many people know about that. Whitehead found out just before the game that his mother-in-law died in a car accident on the way to the game, and he didn't let any of the players know until after the game.

                                Maine certainly wasn't a favorite to win that year.
