    Hmmm. I suppose the truth is in the middle there somewhere. He did have off season surgery and maybe wanted to voice some personal beliefs in the middle of things to muddy the waters.

    • Looks like Maine picked up another commitment today - Thomas Freel from Ottawaa in the CCHL. 44 points in 32 games this season. 20 years old so I'd assume he will be part of next years class.

        Do you think Ben read my post yesterday? This is a good pickup and the kind of kid Maine needs to get if they want to be successful. I don’t ever see Maine getting a ton of the blue chip kids who commit early.

        Did Maine have another Scottish kid a few years ago? ; )

          Yeah, pretty sure coach hangs on your every word.

                  Couple nice pickups, Freel probably comes in this year and Calafiore probably the following year. I don’t think these guys are necessarily project players but they’re guys that will be expected to be key contributors down the line rather than when they first come in. Either way, nice pickups, both guys have put up some points even if they’re not playing in a top league. I agree that Calafiore should try to play in the USHL or even BCHL prior to coming in.

                  It feels like the average recruit Maine is landing is improving and they’re really starting to pile up.

                      Given the timing I suspect both are coming this fall. I think Ben is going to bring a lot of kids in and some will work out and some won’t. There are a lot more kids committed than spots available.

                        It's not a coaching problem. Just add Barron to a long list of unsuccessful coaches. It's an institutional problem. Maine has never won a conference title and never made it to the NCAA tournament. Why would any talented player ever come to Maine with it's past history and lack of facilities? Perhaps the new basketball building will change that, but that's a few years away.

                          He received two vaccinations and then got infected with Covid. His reasoning was that with the vaccine and the additional antibodies of having Covid he was well protected and did not need the booster. There may have been other issues.

                            Yeah, he did a good job rebuilding the womens program following the Cindy years.
