    Bertagna retroactively removes uvm from postseason play Sunday evening due to accusations of vodka soaked bread celebrations postgame. Quoted in the globe Monday morning "at least there wasn't a keg in the penalty box"

    If BC actually did get special treatment for once, unfortunately it wouldn't matter this year because they have the worst PP in the history of hockey (stole that from bill walton).

    BC (1) UVM (2)
    Notre Dame (1) PC (2)

    Semifinal
    PC> Lowell

    For those who may be interested, since there was a discussion of POTY, I wrote an article laying out the case as to why Zach Aston-Reese deserves the Hobey Baker Award, with comparisons to Kelleher and Mike Vecchione as the core of the arguments.

    Overall, I would take UML and BU over BC. right now, sure, take ND and PC. but if BC can somehow regain what they were...they are better than PC and right there with ND. Unfortunately this late tailspin has put them in a very bad position.

    Another con for York: Collectively, the coaches need to have their heads examined for picking BC to finish 6th. In other words, I'm not convinced York did a +5 coaching job this season. Personally, I would never pick BC to finish lower than 2nd or 3rd unless they were coming off back-to-back poor seasons, which might indicate they were trending downward. That wasn't the case here. In my mind, BC hockey is one of the few programs in college sports where you can truly say they don't rebuild, they reload.
    I disagree. BC looked borderline bad every time I saw them this year and backed into a regular season title after not winning a game for almost the entire month of February. Their results against teams of any consequence are... not good. Despite how the conference standings ended up, I honestly think there are 5 teams in Hockey East that are better than BC.

Cashman was a huge improvement in net for the Terriers that freshman year, but man, Amonte was a special player from Day 1. He had a similar "man amongst boys" look as Eichel.

    But I think Keller will win it, and he should.
    Keller and Oettinger have carried this team all year long...co rookies of the year?
