    Im amazed at how pizz poor us americans have chosen to unite and get after this virus. No doubt though in todays world. I feel lucky to be living in maine with this going on. The hockey team is practicing with masks, good for them. A few complaints though Im sure. Keep it going!

    I see a big shutdown coming also. Although UMaine still has no known cases so good for them. The southern part of the state isn't doing so well. Once winter weather hits all bets are off as I see it.

    My guess right now is that we have a season and the nationwide shutdown happens sometime in the spring. I think it will be used in conjunction with the rollout of the vaccine.

    Roster is on the website and the only surprise is no Holesinsky. I’m excited to see if the freshmen forwards are any good. I know some folks judge the team solely on the basis of the top couple lines, but I’m encouraged in how the team has evolved.

    It's still around but mutated with swine & bird flu's. It caused an epi/pandemic in 1957. It is now known as the common winter flu that shows up year after year, still mutating.

    So i heard all the team is in orono including freshmen.
    There is no ice in at this time.
    That’s really good news. I’m feeling a lot more positive on a season happening. I’m not sure playing hockey adds a lot more risk for the players.

    Are all the guys even back? I think we have to start there. One of BU’s European players chose to stay home.

    Maine was 15th in the Pairwise when the season was cancelled, projected to qualify for the NCAA tournament.
    Yeah, I had that wrong. Upon further review, Swayman could have gotten them in, and perhaps even carried them to the FF. It all seemed liked an illusion to me at the time, and largely as a result of that astounding jump in the PW pursuant to the miraculous BC weekend.

    Anyhoo, everyone hates this format. Is there anyone to complain to?
