  • You are going to a home BU-BC game, and you can pick BU's line-up. It has to be comprised of players you saw in person at BU, and you get their best BU season (i.e. post-BU NHL career means nothing). Who are your 1st and 2nd lines/d-pairs/goalies? Ignore LW/RW/C and LD/RD distinctions. It's a full game, so don't worry about are we up a goal, down a goal, etc. For me:

    Tony Amonte
    Chris Drury
    Jack Eichel
    Matt Gilroy
    David Farrance
    Michel Larocque


    Shawn McEachern
    Shawn Bates
    Jay Pandolfo
    Tom Poti
    Dante Fabbro
    Jake Oettinger

    Some good names left off: John Cullen, Scott Young, Dave Tomlinson, Joe and Dave Sacco, Rich Brennan, Jon Coleman, Chris Kelleher, Rick DiPietro, John Curry, Patrick Harper, Clayton Keller, Trevor Zegras, Joel Farabee, Keith and Brady Tkachuk, and many others.

      Nice list! Off the top of my head, I'd definitely substitute Mike Grier for Shawn Bates.

      • I would have to include John Cullen

        also showing I'm probably the oldest here could never omit Bob Marquis (1957-1960)

        • The biggest snub I see here is Colin Wilson not as part of the Others Receiving Votes category, at the very least. A sure candidate for the second team.
          ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

            Yeah I was thinking Colin Wilson and Scott Lachance as a couple of likely candidates not mentioned.

            • While these were all great players, for a BU-BC game, I think I'd like to add Peter Marshall onto the list.

              Comment


              • I'd flip Poti and Farrance. There were times when Poti was dominant. And I'd give Grizz and Warsofsky honorable mention consideration.

                  I definitely meant to add Wilson in the list of names left off. I actually thought of him while putting the actual teams together, and then decided afterwards to add the additional names and forgot about him.

                  Scott Lachance had a nice year at BU, definitely played very well for a freshman, but I wouldn't put his season among the greats over the past 30+ years.

                  Bates vs. Grier is a good debate. Completely different styles. And both fun to watch for different reasons. When Bates was on his game, it was a real treat.

                    If using “best season,” I think you need to add Chris O’Sullivan to the honorable mention list. In 94-95,’ he was superb.

                      I used my database to see which players did the best vs BC since I started following BU in 1985 and here are the players I would have on my team:

                      Jon Coleman (5-13-18 in 15 games, 3ppg, 2 gwg)
                      David Warofsky (5-5-10 in 12 games, 4ppg, 1shg)
                      Rick DiPietro (1.95gaa, 0.935sv%, 2-0-1)

                      Mike Prendergast (10-8-18 in 14 games, 6ppg, 1shg, 2gwg)
                      Mike Pomichter (10-5-15 in 12 games, 3ppg)
                      Tony Amonte (7-6-11 in 7 games, 1ppg, 1gwg)
                      Rich Brennan (2-8-10 in 15 games)
                      Garrett Noonan (6-3-9 in 14 games, 3ppg)

                        Well I certainly wasn't thinking of it in terms of who did best against BC - was just trying to hype up the scenario. That said, I don't think it's an accident that half of those guys played during BC's "lean" years of 92-96.

                          Nothing beat some dude holding up a sign down low sec 6 that read something like “0-18-1. What rivalry?”

                            Talent-wise, no, even though he was a very good player. But character-wise, absolutely. If you want to have a winning team, you need a Peter Marshall on it.

                            Great call, Scarlet.

                            • So it seems we get “season cards” rather than season tickets.

                                Was just coming here to post about this. I got mine as well. Totally get the no paper tickets thing, been doing that all season with my Red Sox tickets. I still do not understand how these will work. Is there an app? Why would you need your phone if you have the card? I don't think the instructions were clear at all.
