    Interesting, good to hear. What was the forum that Red said that at?

      Hasn't helped much, if it was true in the first place.

      Which program have you been watching for the past several years, again?

        Yeah hard to tell but Sway certainly played like a Grant goaltender last season.

        • Tort, Goose and the 'Jackets get a big comeback win tonight. Game 4 tomorrow at 8. One win away from advancing.

          Hockey in August is weird, but I'm getting back into it.

            If some play this year and someone on team tests + then what happens. Whole team quaranteens for two weeks?
            Schedules will have to be flexible wont they.

              Really hard for me to see hockey or any other college sports happening this year. Would like to be wrong but just doesn’t seem likely.

              • Devin Shore played 4th line for the Jackets tonight, replacing Gerbe. Hard to imagine, but that was his first playoff game ever. And Columbus evened the series. This is fun stuff for Maine fans. I can't imagine Red recruiting an NHL caliber player, but we still have a few good ones from Tim's tenure. Go figger.

It's sad where Maine was finally starting to get it's act together. It will be very interesting if there isn't a season at all what happens with all the players.
                  Good God, Maine hasn't had its act together for years and years now. And they certainly weren't on their way to doing that this Fall.

                  Only Swayman saved the program from another complete embarrassment last season... And he's gone.

                  Be happy that they won't have to endure a single-digit W season in 20/21, because that was a mortal lock had they played it.

                    Nah, this covid crap is going to go on for years, life as we knew it is over and its a new game from now on. Society will adapt but it will take time.

                        Agreed. Would hope we only go one year without fans but I anticipate for years people will probably be required to wear masks to attend sporting events.

                          MikaŽl Huchette will report to Quebec after being picked in Rd 5 in 2019. Had a commit to UMaine but decided to jump to the Q after a disappointing experience at a USHL training camp. Since Roy's return, Quebec is doing well getting NCAA de-commits.

                                For the one and only time in 20 years, I emailed the administration here with my complaints. Not surprised that I heard nothing back.
                                I never received an email, but I have nothing pertinent to add on the format.

                                Maine was 15th in the Pairwise when the season was cancelled, projected to qualify for the NCAA tournament.
