    Team's 10 games under 500 the whole operation deserves to be picked apart for better or worse
    Yeah, Red and Tim inherited different teams.

          Really? People were looking at a team that had gone to overtime in the NCAA Championship in year one and was 13-1-2 in year two and said, "We need to fire this Whitehead guy, he's just not getting it done."

          Sure.

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.

                Would you really have wanted to see Blake James hire a new coach? Maine had decent enough seasons in '10, '11, and '12 so he wasn't going to get canned after those years.

                    Gendron has a 4 year deal,he's trying to implement his plan at turning this Program around...he's in year 2...if after 4 years its not working,well like Red said when he got hired...they can Fire Me if they don't think I'm the right person for the job going forward. 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).

                      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.

                        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.

                          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.

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

Winning was fun, and who really cares if kids get paid a bit extra for getting hit in the head repeatedly... or at least allow illiterates to play and keep on playing for 2 or three years... it works in boston.
                              1. how do I make your original post my .sig... i love it!!!

                                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.
