    It is a nice change of pace. After years of making opposing goaltenders look like Brodeur and Hasek the team is now making opposing teams look like the 1984 Edmonton Oilers. Progress!?

    What a disappointment Mucitelli has been.

    Yeah, he let in two softies, then made two great stops.

    Barr really needs to recruit better 'tending in the off-season, no matter what.

    Happy to see Maine playing better than any Red team, though. And plenty of good seats still available here lol!

    Friends and family crowd at Colgate. Maine should get a split or better this weekend. Colgate is schizophrenic, with wins against top 10 teams like Harvard and Merrimack, but losses to Vermont and swept by Niagara.

    Maine with a five-minute power play early on. This is a golden opportunity.

    Welcome back everyone. I’m excited to see the boys play tomorrow, I’m planning on making the trip.
    Given how they finished the first half, it’s hard not to be optimistic. A split is and should be the expectation here, they’re playing a team of similar talent level. Hopefully we see some of the same play from the first half carryover. I don’t think anyone expects this team to make a run but I would like to see them break into the top 30 in the pairwise and remain there for the rest of the year.

    Watched it and he left me with how I originally felt about this AD appointment, meh. Hope I'm wrong really, and will give him time and a fair chance. Hope he does well, really, we need a good AD right now.

    He appears to be a nice and approachable guy. He seemed fairly nervous, which was surprising, he better get comfortable quickly.
    His family, wife and kids seem to be well rooted in Oxford, thought he said she is a professor at Miami. Just dont see a full embracement of this area by the family, they will always have a foot elsewhere. Moving to Bangor from mid Ohio is a real culture change. Depending on folks background some enjoy it some hate it. Its hardest on the family, he will be plenty busy at work.
    I was thinking during this, is this simply a hopeful stepping stone job for him to go back and be the AD at Miami when the current guy retires or moves??

    Time will tell what type of AD he will be, will he support good coaches as needed to keep them here and not be afraid to move on from an unsuccessful coach?? Is he an administrator and cheerleader type or a leader who can promote and sell the right kind of improvement to the decision makers??


    I'm with you, be interesting to see how he will do with fundraising, a huge challenge for this job.

    Its a success if he simply moves the needle in the right direction before he moves on, and doesn't mess up hockey or the successful women's sports. Anything more than that will be a pleasant surprise for me.
    Not sure what his wife teaches or what her research interests are but Orono needs professors also so maybe she fits here.

    Well that was a bit different....and actually a breath of fresh air in some regards. Killy was very emotional at times when reflecting and thanking those that have inspired him in life and his career. His mom and dad as well as in-laws are teachers/college professors....as is his wife. As he said....he has been around higher education his entire life. I think that he is going to be popular with the academic and administrative community....which will hopefully benefit the dept. with more support from an area of the university that has been lukewarm to cool at times in the past. He seems very approachable and is obviously intelligent.

    It will be interesting to see how he handles fundraising.....I don't see him as being a wine & dine salesman like Ken Ralph. Seems to me that he will be a bit more straight forward.

    Any thoughts from the rest of you that may have watched or will watch this?

    According to my alum magazine, alumni Phillip and Susan Morse recently donated $10 mil for the new athletics arena as part of the $90 mil challenge grant. Morse credits Alfond with him becoming a part owner of the Red Sox in 2002.

    Yes, they go over some of that in the video. The different project phases have match requirements that are at various levels right now. They do have a long way to go with raising funding for some of the phases. The final amounts are sketchy because of how construction costs have increased and they need to complete the designs for the next up phases. They have funding for the softball field (almost done), field hockey (started that a few weeks back and should be done for fall season), and the alfond video/sound stuff (for next season). The shawn walsh ctr and alfond facility improvements did get approval for proceeding with the design work which is underway.

    Bottom line is I think folks at Umaine would be ecstatic if this was all done in ten years.

    About minute 53 Barr comes on and has some interesting input and comparisons of our player facilities vs other hock east teams. We need this renovation!!

    In the middle somewhere is more detail on the Shawn Walsh ctr renovations. The more I see of this the more I understand how important it is to upgrade the player facilities.
