    Yeah, that's why it was "concerning" when I heard it, as if he knew something that hadn't been made public yet.

There were never any plans for him to play Monday. Frankly, one has to wonder if he will be back at all...you had to hear the inflection in his voice the way he said it to detect that.

    From my sources, it sounds like Crone was asked to return to the USHL by DQ. Heard his adjustment to D1 last year didn't go anywhere near as well as expected.

    The plan for Crone was to spend last year in the USHL, then arrive as a 20 year-old Freshman this season. Plans were accelerated following JFK's premature, unexpected departure. What also occurred that offseason was:

    - Johnny McDermott asked to play a year in USHL to make room for Ty Amonte, who was also originally slated to arrive at BU as a 20 year-old Freshman this season. Amonte was accelerated based on the year he had for the Vernon Vipers and BU's desperate need for a right-shot forward.

    - Kieffer Bellows leaves for MJs; Drew Melanson added as a grad transfer, which worked out quite well.

    - Oskar Andren transfers to Ferris State; Jake Witkowski backfills Andren's spot on the roster.

    From the BU perspective, the timing of Tkachuk's departure was less than ideal. As contingency, BU added Cheremeta to the roster a few weeks before Tkachuk made his decision. However, it's very clear Tkachuk would've had a much bigger impact on this BU team than Cheremeta has.

That said, the landscape of hockey has changed and the days of rubber stamping HE championships and NCAA tournaments to BU and BC year in and year out are likely over. Still if Jake plays well like he has been down the stretch you can beat anybody!
    I agree with everything on here, though Jake might have to pitch shutouts for us to beat some of the top teams out there.

    1.) Beacuse it's an option for deciding which team advances in an in-season tournament; and 2.) in 2007 BC and Harvard went to triple overtime in the second game of the women's Beanpot semifinals (BC 4, Harvard 3) and ended at 12:21 AM in the morning. After that the semifinals were changed from unlimited 20 minute overtimes to a standard 5 minute overtime and the shootout. The championship game remains unlimited 20 minute overtimes (for now).

    FYI, tonight's shootout was the fourth since the change was made and NU has participated in all of them (2-2).

    Congrats to the women's team for defeating NU in a shootout. NU had a 1-0 lead in the shootout after 2 shooters each, but BU got the save and then the goal needed to send it to extra shooters, where they won it. BU never led during regulation, they kept tying it up.

    Speaking of Tkachuk - is he hurt? Haven't seen his name on the scoring sheets in a while.

    I think BU has tried to recruit some older guys, but they tend to not be for top 6 roles.

    I think Wise has the skill to make it, more than Crone did. It certainly took him some time to adjust, and perhaps he didn't really before he got hurt.
