  • I'd like to see more than 22 combined games between two teams before making judgments on who is better than whom. In a normal year, this amount of games would still be the early season.

    That said, I thought BU played very well last night, especially with the players they were missing.

      No format announced yet. I have been listening to CHN podcast where they have been tossing around ideas. The women's tournament announced it will all be in Erie, PA. The men's bball tournament all in state of Indiana. It has been stated that the committee still wants to do the 4 regionals but Manchester has already dropped out.

      At least cases are dropping in MA. With vaccine in circulation i think there will definitely be some kind of tournament. But if i had to bet, I think we get to a point where we have two regional sites instead of 4. With the Ivies not playing i was curious if we would see a 12 team field this year.

      As for selection process, if you want to take things out of the hands of a committee that has no non league games to evaluate maybe the best approach is to give each league a certain # of slots and tell the leagues to figure out how to select their teams. It's getting kinda late in the game, would be nice to hear something.

      Just as an example, to me the ECAC deserves only one slot. If you want to factor in historical data (which has been mentioned), maybe Atlantic Hockey gets 1-2 since they at least have 11 teams playing. Maybe the WCHA gets 2 bids. And so on.

        BC won; BU got a point. There are no moral victories.

        BC is loaded with talent and has a great goalie. BU was missing key players, but let's give those that played credit for stepping up. The fourth line, in particular, stepped up - and who knows if any or all of them would have played had BU been at full strength.

        If it comes down to a 3-on-3 overtime, I want Farrance.

            Cool, he made a great move.

            Farrance is just about the most valuable 3 on 3 player in the country.

            • When was BCs last visit to WBA? I’d love to find that old box score. Gotta think that’s out in Kelleher/MattiK era BC.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

              • Trying to watch on Sports Live stinks. The video goes off after a minute on my computer, telling me they are experiencing video difficulties. But I can watch it on my phone. Very strange.

                        • Very nice. This team has already submitted more strong efforts than the last two years combined.

                            So how's it goin

                              I'm not sure what this means considering Hutsko didn't play but congratulations on the victory. Is that what you were looking for? BU has a good team. Now get to the 13 game mark.

                              • Good rebound by BU they capitalize on BC mistakes though outshot 41-23

                                Even the BU announcers observe BC does the same thing on the PP, they stay too high and predictable
