      Although I'm praying there will be an opening at UConn, I don't think Luce is going anywhere. BC is too smart to hire that mediocre self-promoting POS, unfortunately, although his pals and lackeys in the media are definitely making a lot of noise pushing his cause since York stepped down (no big surprise BTW). But you're right - if someone makes Barr the proverbial "offer he can't refuse", there's really nothing UMaine can do, other than hope Barr is truly committed to the UMaine cause. Which brings me to this post ...

      Barr definitely has seen a good share of the D-1 Hockey world as an assistant for someone as young as he is, so he's not been concerned about relocating in the past, after several short stints. But this is his first job as HC, and maybe I'm being naive here, but I think I'm with you in believing that it's too soon in his tenure to up stakes again, and he is committed to giving the UMaine project his full energies and attention for the next several years. He has a friend/mentor as his AD, and will enjoy the benefit of his patience and understanding as the project develops. Switch out for (say) BC or BU, and you will be expected to hit the ground running from Day One, and if you only do "pretty well" you will be out "pretty quickly" (see O'Connell at BU).

      And after all that, THEN you'd have to figure out what the next 25 years of your career will look like, as a failed AND disloyal D-1 level HC. So I wouldn't worry about Barr leaving. Not now anyway ...

          Isn't Bradley supposed to be even better than Josh, who himself is an extremely highly regarded player of his age? I think they both have the potential to be extremely special players.

            I think Brad is the better pro prospect because of his size but Josh is more skilled.

              This is the way I see it as well. Bradley is only 16 and averaged almost a point per game in the BCHL so he’ll probably average similar numbers if not better numbers the season before he comes in. I could definitely see him coming in as a true 18 year old.

              Watching Josh skate, handle and shoot the puck, I couldn’t help but think of Spencer Abbott. He’s really crafty with the puck and has a quick release.

              • What do folks think about Mitchell Miller? He would be a bit controversial but would also be one of the better players in Hockey East. I have no idea if Ben would be interested but might be a good opportunity for Maine.

                    Every Time Ben has been interviewed over the last year he goes out of his was to talk about changing the culture of the team. He just got all the *** holes off the team I can’t imagine him bringing in Miller. He’s got BC written all over him!

                      I’m all for a redemption story and second chances but what that kid did was pretty sick. In the future when the culture is established, I could see taking a chance on him but right now we’re in no position to take a chance on a lightning rod.

                          If so, I'm interested.

                          Abbott was way under-rated.

                          Love to see that kind of talent back at Maine.

                            • It was the Nadeau Bros. show once again in Penticton's 6-2 playoff win last night.....Josh was 1st star with 2G & 1A and Bradley was 2nd star with 1G & 2A.

                                They continue to light it up. I’m interested to see what Barr decides to do with them. I think it makes sense to bring Josh in this year and Bradley next year even though he’ll be just over 18 years old. They seem like they eat breathe and sleep hockey and with his brother already on campus for a year, it should make his transition smooth. Their stats through 7 playoff games.

                                Bradley Nadeau - 3 G 7 A 10 points
                                Josh Nadeau - 5 G 3 A 8 points

                                Felix Trudeau had a goal and an assist in West Kelowna’s win last night. Both Penticton and West Kelowna are up 2-0 in their series. If both teams win, they will play each other next round for a chance to go to the championship. Trudeau’s stats through 5 playoff games.

                                Felix Trudeau - 3 G 5 A 8 points
