    BU needs to find some players that can put the puck in the net. Matt Brown from UML would be the #1 guy on my list. Just a sophomore and would make a great addition up front.

    Wonder if he already knows where he is going
    Not very productive but did good job killing penalties
    Maybe could find a home at Ohio State with 3 other BU players

    "Improved recruiting" hasn't resulted in any real improvements, though. Both guys have been there long enough that their history of "success" should have resulted in better recruits. Which should then, in turn, result in something better than the NCAA tournament bubble. It hasn't, and that makes me wary of these guys.

    I'd love to see them trade a few forwards for a solid stay-at-home defenseman. Who's available?

    Huh? Are you advocating Albie cut a crap load of forwards and try to backfill through the transfer portal?

    The best names I have seen on defense are Will Cullen from BG and Chase Blackmun from UML. Cullen will be 25! at the start of next season. Three productive years at BG. Blackmun is 22. Three good years at UML for him. Not sure either would be classified as stay at home though. Michael Karow was a pretty good stay at home dman this year!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a few more of our forwards leave, particularly those who haven't been able to crack the lineup.

    Rising Seniors/superseniors: Cockerill Amonte Kaufman Quercia
    Rising Juniors: Armstrong Boguslavsky Mastro JOB Stevens Phillips Skoog
    Rising Sophomores: Zabaneh Tuch Peterson

    That's 14 forwards without counting the incoming freshmen. Of those, the 10 bolded players are sharpied in the lineup every night if healthy. Not a lot of space up front.

    I'm still waiting for the 2019 & 2020 NCAA report from UML, as well as PC's 2020 Form 990, but here are the total annual compensation reported for Coaches Leaman and Bazin:


    Bazin Leaman
    Year Total Total
    2012 294,690
    2013 354,641 332,441
    2014 425,310 388,061
    2015 432,988 449,788
    2016 489,315 547,962
    2017 569,350 586,475
    2018 620,872 572,862
    2019 932,238
