    The most disturbing characteristic of this team is to almost immediately give up a goal after scoring. That happened at least twice last night, especially after tying the game. It has to be demoralizing. In general, this team gives up WAY too many goals and IMO too many "soft" goals. They are very inattentive in their own end. Their GF/GA stands at 49/49, and they have given up the 3rd most goals in the league! Currently they are only one point out of SEVENTH PLACE in Hockey East. We certainly have not seen the "expected" improvement out of this bunch and it just seems as though it's not going to happen.

Oettinger coming up small in a big moment and a team that came out overwhelmed and flat on the big stage says a lot about OC and player leadership in general. What’s worse is following the score on Hockey East website they listed Cockerill scoring with 15 secs left to time game at 6-6. Wasn’t corrected for over 5 minutes. An expected no show on Monday will put them at 4 losses in 5 games and all played in the city limits.

    Gotta give Trent Fredric chops for finding some way to stand out in this search for a 3rd line center. I have to admit I was pretty disturbed by his parents reaction in the stands. Does a mom really like to see her son beat the snot out of someone?
    You BU fans should love Tanev getting beat up after what he did to BU ;-)

    The Hockey East website had a PC score wrong on their headline for three days this season.

    And regarding comparing this year to last year, I was much more frustrated with last year's team because they were wasting a lot of talent in the first half. This team isn't nearly as talented and they're playing well of late. (I agree with the assessment that they played hard Saturday night.) I like this team. Let's see if they can surprise us with a few "effort" wins.

    From a "who are the traditional powerhouses" standpoint I get what you are saying, however we have had 7 OOC games this year against teams currently ranked higher than most of those teams you mentioned. I think we are actually doing pretty good with our OOC schedule and it is neat to see teams we have not seen much of (if at all)...

    Well ivy's start late so the first 3 games that count will prolly be northern and union.

    Let's hope it isn't another 0-3-0 kickoff
    (Unless the boys begin with hea games)

    [



    As of now, I think next season's OOC opponents are (dates for home & away OOC games are TBD):

    HOME
    * N. Michigan (2X)
    * Harvard
    * Brown

    AWAY
    * Dartmouth
    * Union

    NEUTRAL
    * Beanpot (2X)
    * Cornell (Red Hot Hockey)[/QUOTE]

    another year with a terrible home schedule if true- 2 years in a row without any teams from Big Ten and NCHC
    When I raised schedule issues at Albie's introduction I was told had trouble filling out schedule so had to fill in with Northern Michigan
    We should never play two games at home together against western opponents - There are enough teams to fill out the other night

    I get why we have to play two games at the away venue

    BU began the season with 8 Ds, compared with 9 the previous season. With Vidoli's departure, they're down to seven. So if everyone except Fabbro returns, that leaves six. While I agree with buoldtimer's assessment of Krys below, Chicago still might want him to turn pro rather than risk losing him after a senior year.
    Even if both Fabbro and Krys left, BU has Vlasic, McCarthy, Fensore coming in, which would bring the # of D back up to 8 for next season. Webber could also be accelerated and join the team as an 18 yo next season (I think the current plan is for him to arrive in 2020) if there was an unexpected departure on D...

    I had that same reaction....although maybe it was "relief" because he didn't get killed?
