    Good luck NU fans!

        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

          What else is there to measure? Is not the object of a hockey game to outscore your opponent? If you have the same amount of opportunities to score (by virtue of attempting to put the puck in the net, e.g. taking a "shot"), don't you have a similar chance of winning the game as your opponent does?

          If you can't quantify it or put it in tangible terms, you cannot back up the statement that you were "all over" your opponent because it simply isn't true. There have been many games I've watched where I felt like one team was getting better than the other, but then I was surprised to learn later that the stats didn't support that idea. Sometimes, just watching the game doesn't tell the whole story, especially when you are heavily biased toward one of the participants.

          Do you have any evidence that suggests that NU was the better team that day? If not, your personal bias is probably skewing your perception of events.

                  Finishing behind UVM this season would be more than just embarrassing. It would require, at a minimum, serious injuries to our top 2 goalies and top two forward lines. That would be tragic!
                  HH Hound, what are you personally projecting for your Huskies this season?

                    It's tough enough to predict the outcome of one game, but since you asked: 21-10-3 for the regular season. 15-7-2 in Hockey East = 2-3rd place.

                      Yes...witnessing the game which is available in archive somewhere. Any chance that QPac launched a puck toward the net just about every time they hit the blueline? What would that do to the *stats*?

                      Where does attack zone time figure into your metrics?

No banners for that at The Whitt even), and BC won the HE Tourney, and the spin-happy folks at Bandwagon Nation had an entirely different slant on things at the time. Shocking.

                        Chuck, where did I say that I was satisfied with that? Hint, I didn't. All, I said was that objectively BC's season was better than Northeastern's. Personally, any time BC has a team deep and talented enough that they have 7 drafted players leave early and still have the top four scorers coming back from that team, then anything less than a National Championship is a disappointment.

                          You aren't correct and your hatred of Free Speech is duly noted.

                          PS: Our trophy wasn't for "participation"...

                                No, there is virtually no chance that a team would launch the puck toward the net every time they gain the blue line. This is a faulty line of thinking that simply aims to further an agenda that isn't supported by anything of substance.

                                Attack zone time would be a great stat to look at. To my knowledge, tracking of this stat is nonexistent at the college level and only used occasionally in the NHL.

                                This will be my last post on the subject. I've spent too much time trying to convince someone who won't listen that something did not occur the way they perceived it to. And it wasn't really an important point in the first place.
