    Re: Northeastern Huskies 2016-17 -- Great Expectations

    [QUOTE=northeastern;6426867]Huskies played well for 2.9 periods up at UNH until they didnt. Given the ice at Frozen Fenway, i'd say team played well enough there as well.

    I think if they play a full 60 minutes (D included) & Ruck can have decent rebound control.. i like their chances both games this wknd. Not a knock on Merrimack at all.. just think we're due some points. Here's hoping

    Go Huskies [/QUOTE
    -----------------------------------------
    That sums it up nicely. It will help if we get back Nolan and Jozefek in the next week or two. Responsible defense from our forwards will go a long way toward making Ruck's life easier and to helping him (and the team) to regain confidence.

    You nailed it. Which ever team gets the better goaltending wins. Simple as that. And for NU, some production from the 3rd and/or 4th lines wouldn't hurt.

    So, what are the NU faithful's expectation for the weekend series against Merrimack? Figured I'd try your thread since the both of us on the Merrimack thread would not have much of a discussion!
    I'm thinking they split. NU offense rolls at Matthews, but MC come back to win a tight one at Lawler. Ruck has been spotty, and MC's goaltending has been trick-or-treat at best.

    It's all good. One of my favorite sayings is "I'm only as good as the information I've been given..."

    I am not. If I gave that impression I apologize. I am an alum...JD and a couple odd LLMs since the early 80's but I'm semi retired from private practice and have been focused on my duties as counsel to a business partnership that I formed in 2007 with some of my fellow Canadian ex-pats...that may help you but my preference is to be anonymous here...

    We probably have crossed paths as I have been a season ticket holder and a booster.

    You are correct about Pecararo. Apparently someone has dug in his heels. The kid has an associate degree, but apparently that is not enough to satisfy the NC$$ byzantine requirements.. I'm afraid that we'll see Nolan and Jozefek on the ice before we see Liam.

    Perhaps your source about the goalies' scholarships meant well, but he/she is mistaken - plain and simple. Theut and Frye were invited to join the team as backup goalies and were offered a chance to develop their skills and play the odd game. They did not receive scholarship $. Cayden Primeau is a scholarship goalie and has been committed for several years.

    Thanks for the clarification. BTW, I have a buddy named Guido who is good at making things happen.

    Thanks...great case...I watch/see a lot of hockey and there are none in the Top (next) 5 NCAA players that play the 200' game as well as he does against the best competition in college hockey - that he scores is also a compelling factor and had I a vote he'd get it.

    That said, I'd be very surprised if they awarded it to a Boston area player for the 4th year in a row and to a program that isn't having that great of a year.
    Thanks for bringing up the other elements of his game. ZAR has more hits in an average game than the other kids have the entire season. He is fun to watch (and a beast to play against) even when he doesn't have the puck.

    And, although he plays for a Boston team, he is not from Mass, like Vecchione and Kelleher. He's from the hockey hotbed of Staten Island, NY, land of NYC firefighters, NYC cops and NYC gangsters. But you raise a valid point. I wonder if these guys will split the Northeast vote and somebody from out west will swoop in and steal it.
