    Edit: but they should... the school sees it as a recruiting tool and the players don't know our history of dealing with the bull****.

    I just see the Fenway thing as way overdone and more of a risk than reward.

    Might disappoint.. This article with the godfather Joe B. in the Herald says otherwise.

They do act like kids when they’re out there on the ice at Fenway Park and they stop to look around the place,” said Bertagna, who cited UMass-Lowell and Vermont as schools who have expressed an eagerness to return to the event. “I think it could be successful again.”

    Interesting that you bring that up. I saw an article on the Globe website today saying the University system has earned a favorable bond rating as it plans to borrow $280 million for capital projects.

    I searched to see if the Tsongas expansion is part of this and it doesn't appear to be. According to this report it doesn't look like its in the plans for the next 5 years. See page 74.

    They still have it on the list of projects, but no approved funding and committed timeline yet.

    Well since the move to D1 I wouldn't say they have made many decisions that went against the almighty dollar. That being said I wonder how much say the school has, as I had heard the revenue for the event goes to Hockey East, and then is redistributed to the schools. Something about the upgrades to Schneider being supported by Frozen Fenway. If that's true, well... we haven't heard much about the new practice rink.

    Congrats to Lowell's Wuilito Fernandes on becoming the first player from Lowell to be selected in the MLS Draft. He was chosen in the Third Round by Dallas.

    We have to do a lot of winning between then and now for that as much as I'd like to think a first round bye is in the bag
