    You're stupid.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

        Everyone agreed to the formula. No different than winning the title by 1 pt. Someone "wins". BU did not. But please feel free to raise your own banner!

          Everyone agreed that that formula isn’t legit so therefore they won’t award a trophy. How’s that taste?

          • Actually no, that isn't what happened. The decision to not award the title apparently came down to *cough* UMass *cough* not wanting to give it to a team that had played a lot fewer games *cough* BU *cough*. Entirely separate issue from using the formula for seeding. But keep crying. Maybe if BU loses tomorrow you can hang a 3rd place banner.

            • People have complained about not releasing the formula but Steve Metcalf talked about it with some BU reporter about how it's petty similar to other formulas used in college hockey. Hockey East WANTED to award a trophy but got overruled by certain ADs. Jim Connelly said BC was NOT against BU being awarded the trophy.

              • Hard to believe that all these brain cells are being wasted over a Regular Season banner and UNH is not involved.

                  So UMass stopped the NU women from winning the HE title and all the schools agreed? No they didn’t you idiot. I am not crying I am pointing out how idiotic your opinion that Its clear cut. It’s not. There is no good way to do it based on uneven schedules and number of games played. Schools agreed and decided it wasn’t fair and no titles to be awarded. If they decided on winning percentage which many leagues could you use there would be a tie. Get that? No one trusts some made up HEPI with away wins/losses/weighted/etc. therefore the decision was made that it’s fine for seeding but not valid for regular season titles.


                  16-4-1 =.785 winning %
                  11-3 = .785 winning %

                  • I didn't say anything about the women's side of things. I am assuming this "dispute" on the men's side led to not awarding a trophy to the women either.

                    Even in a normal season, winning by 1 pt might not be clear cut if there isn't a balanced schedule etc. Get the **** over it and try to wrap up 2nd best tomorrow.

                    • Either way, it's pretty clear you did not read Connelly's piece where he outlined the contention made for not awarding the trophy centered around BU finishing 1st in the standings.

                        Plot thickens..
                        According to reports, the regular season trophy made an appearance in the BC locker room after the game. So it appears that @hockey_east may have had a change of heart and may be awarding bchockey & @GoNUwhockey the titles after all...


                        if that’s the case that’s embarrassing as **** for the League. If BC lost today and BU won tomorrow they wouldn’t have champs because BU only had 14 games but it’s legit because BC played 21?

                        • Take that up with UMass. It was reported BC did NOT care if BU won the title. Hockey East always wanted to award the trophies.

                            So one school decided it for the 12 teams?

                            • But if you can't understand that there is a big difference between doing something for 14 games compared to 21, I don't know what to tell you. And you keep talking about winning percentage when BC played UConn 4 times and UMass 3 times without playing Vermont once.

                                you are making my point why this regular season cannot award a winner. Schedule was messed up. Teams had zero control how many games they played due to a pandemic. Arbitrarily saying 21 is enough but 14 isn’t sensible. Teams and players had no control over that. Don’t you think it was a massive advantage for teams to have had 10 games played before some teams even started?

                                it’s now being reported that HE did not bring trophy and someone at BC grabbed an old one as a joke.
