    I dont think they will be .500 next year, and on top of that the bottom slot in HE will be the reality. I say that because every other team that typically occupy the bottom third in HE are a couple years ahead of Maine in a rebuild and playing much better hockey than orono.

    We should have done a rebuild 3 or 4 years ago at the latest, but that prior AD wasnt capable of it or had enough cahoonas to do it. Getting back into a competitive position in HE, hopefully, is going to take 3 to 5 years. Maine needs a major roster change with good recruits feeding in every year and then some time for the culture shift, and for Barr to maintain resolve.

    Agree that this season is not a bad reflection on Barr at all, he deserves the time to implement his plan, which Im very positive about. If successful then I hope he sticks around for more than five years. If he fails after five years then time to move on.
    I do agree they won't quite crack .500 next year in all likelihood, but last place in Hockey East would be a disappointing surprise. They'll be better than at least Vermont, and I would guess they improve past New Hampshire too. I think their floor is 9th place for next season.

    Clearly, this team is a disaster, and that's no fault of Barr's.

    I have spent thousands of bucks and have driven thousands of miles to see Walsh and (yes) Whitehead teams rack-up wins, but Red buried the program, perhaps beyond redemption.

    I don't even watch anymore, but I'm very interested in seeing the overhaul happen.

    If Maine can play to .500 next season, we can talk.

    My fingers are crossed... My toes, too.

    But this version of Maine hockey..? Forget about it.

    Is the ghost of Red coaching again?

    That's now four majors in their last seven periods of play, and if UNH fans are to be believed, it could have been five. The only one I saw personally was Dawe's on Saturday, and it was ugly, one of the most blatant majors I've ever seen. Without having seen them for myself I can't pass much judgement, but kind of disgusting to think about 4 majors in 7 periods.

    EDIT: Just saw the two of them from tonight on the replay. Houle's was despicable, as someone below alluded to. Hebert's was played pretty fast and at an odd angle, so I couldn't see it very well, but my first instinct was that it didn't look all that bad. Still makes me feel gross tbh.

    Houle’s looked bad, Hebert’s was a dramatic size difference perfect storm….both called correctly IMO

    Maine deserves to lose. Stupid penalties. How can they be one of the least penalized teams when they take so many dumb penalties? They always seem to have someone in the penalty box.

    He’s lucky for it only to be 1 game, that was boneheaded play. For a guy that has the victim of so many cheap shots, he should know better.
