    Where is Quinn history was he condsidered a good coach? The Pro team he came from struggled. He coached Nebraska in weak competition. The National team has a number of coaches and grade a talent. So his best years came as # 2 to Parker. Doesn't have it Head coach leadership like.
    Norm Bazin. Just cannot relate to kids. BU has plenty of talent and fun to watch just not a team with a coach

      Good job quoting that post there!!

        The BC guy gets it...

The program had just missed the tournament for the 3rd time in 4 seasons, was coming off the task force investigation/sex scandals and had a horrendous talent level. (Take a look at the roster the year Quinn took over. Dalton Macafee and TJ Ryan were regular defensemen.)

          Since then, Quinn has taken the team to three straight tournaments, become best recruiting program in the country and quickly caught/past BC in recruiting and on ice.

          Yes, his in game coaching has been suspect at time and I wish he would start getting more out of CM and JG, but the biggest flaw on this team is scoring depth. Particularly, scoring from upperclassmen forwards. Everyone would agree that to win championships you need a few upperclassmen scorers to balance things. The fact that this team has none is more of a reflection on the talent pool/recruiting that he was left with. I know that he technically recruited some of these Jr and Sr frwrds, but he was somewhat handcuffed because he was just hired.

          Yes, I know Eichel helped speed up the rebuilding process.
          You don't get more out of players unless you hold them accountable..that isn't going to happen here...one of the reasons he is having such "success" on the recruiting trail is that the word is out...if I am an NHL draft pick or play for USA ice time will be given to me based on my resume not what I do at BU. What juniors and seniors who can play are going to stick around to be replaced by the latest NHL draft pick who will be handed their ice time?

              How do you explain Bellows missing multiple games and being on the 3rd line based on his play?

                Even if we all agree that
                A- coach doesn't like Bellows
                B. His play was poor early in season

                Is it now not time to put Bellows and Keller together
                They were dynamite together last year
                He has even tried no goals Cloonan with Keller

                Starting the season we returned few goals from last year
                O'Regan's strong year in AHL shows how valuable he was

                      With Quinn as their coach. Would lose
                      To the Generals



                      Good luck in the NCAAs. Tough draw but at least you're in. Someone always surprises to come out of one bracket, why not BU? (I'm not actually asking that, because I know BUTogether will have some 'answers')

                      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.

                          Can't believe I have more confidence in BU's chances to beat UND than most on this board.

                            You haven't seen our team play the last month and a half, and whilst you could make the same argument about your team, your team DID just beat the best team in the country, and #1 overall, Denver.

                              Anything can happen in one game. Period. Especially hockey, where one bounce can change everything. But I think most people would agree that historically it is very rare that a team who is not playing well just "turns on the switch" and suddenly starts to win. What we are saying is that BU has been struggling (the last time they scored the first goal was, I believe, February 6). If they get behind Friday it will almost certainly be curtains. I'm not going to go back and check, but I would guess (and would probably be right more often than not) that if you took most of the national champions and looked at their results, they would have been trending "upwards" and/or playing well at the end of the season. So this, coupled with the fact that there probably won't be 100 BU fans there in a virtual Sioux (sorry, "Hawks") home game, seems to indicate it very unlikely that suddenly the Terriers are going to play the best game they've played in three months to pull this one out. As I said, anything can happen. But predictions are made on probabilities, and the probably of the Terriers winning this one seems to be small. By the way, has anyone mentioned that BU has been having trouble scoring goals?

                                Would we agree that if this game were at a true neutral site that BU would have an edge over ND? By any measurement, BU is the superior team, though I think ND is on the upswing.

                                The true threat is Duluth. I think BU has more problems with that team.

                                Last 10 games:

                                BU 5-4-1 incl. against 6 top-15 ranked teams, plus 2 against Northeastern that was playing like a ranked team in the second half.
                                ND 6-1 against 4 top-15 ranked teams, plus 2 against #20 Omaha.

                                Almost same record with SOS edge to BU in last ten.
