    I think today's events set a new bar for a program that is a true ****show.

    Sour grapes from two different people? I think all people are trying to say is that the NU coach's kid coming to BU means it's not a s**t show, and that players are expected to develop at BU, else a college coach would steer his kid elsewhere. Can we at least have that?

    Unless you're implying that BU is a s**t show and that players won't develop, but the kid insisted on being a Terrier...

    Right, so assuming it was dad that made the decision is pretty insulting to the player.

    Jerry Keefe didn’t decide that bu was the proper place for his son to play. The boy and his father decided that his son might benefit if he played for someone other than Dad, someone a different coaching style. At the same time, the boy wants to play in the Beanpot. That left just two choices Bu and BC. Either you won the coin toss, or they simply chose the devil (coach) they knew better.
    I think DLG was only referring to BU over options other than NU, since prior posts had referred to the fact that it is pretty common for a kid to play somewhere other than for his dad (Eaves, Lucia, etc.). We obviously don't know what all went into the decision, but he clearly wouldn't have ended up at BU if there wasn't confidence that they have put a good coaching staff together. So given the way the post-Quinn years have gone to date, yes, there is a little bit of basking going on. :-)

    Agree. Expecting a couple more to be honest being a brand new staff. Have to wonder what the recruits from the Albie, Pearl, Quesnelle are thinking. Most cases when there is a brand new staff they tend to somewhat overrecruit and leave the guys already committed in the shadows or rescind their offers. Saw recently when Umass hired Carvel, UVM with Woodcroft, and Maine with Barr. I believe Carvel's second year had a roster of mainly freshmen. Most times it's for the better, unless you lose the highly regarded recruits.


    Lastarza, Musa, Lachance, Castro, Harvey, Fine, Grimes, and Roukounakis all committed when it was Albie, Pearl, Quesnelle.


    Side note I would not think too much of this. If they didn't want to come to BU they would have decommitted already. Still, interesting to see if they all will be on campus next year.

    Also have to remember with all those juniors and seniors on team there is an option to return for an extra year with the covid exception. Could affect a small number of them

    Hutson #3 (there are four), very small like Lane, is headed to the U17s with Bednarik. Led the NJ Avalanche 16U in goals (20) assists and points (62). Led the AYHL in assists and points and broke Adam Fox’s record for points by a defenseman. More information on Keefe and Bednarik on the blog.

    I suspect the new management isn't finished.

    Second Terrier commit of the day is 5'11" left-shot forward Kamil Bednarik from NJ Rockets. NTDP U17 this season.

    NZ Scouts: “Bednarik was one of our highest rated forwards last summer in Buffalo at the Development Camp and followed that up with a stellar season playing up a year with the U16’s at NJ Rockets. He’s smooth skating, quick twitch forward with silky smooth mits and a quick, accurate release on his wrister and snap shot. He was able to rush wide on defenders with speed and put them on their heels and he would instinctually recognize if he had room to cut in or if he should curl back and wait for trailers or if he should just use his speed and go around them. His offense is versatile in that he doesn’t just rely on the rush; he can make plays from the corners and behind the net, he can play a skill game and pull away with his quickness or he can drop the shoulder and ride his edges to the net front.”

    Always funny when this happens but it happens a lot. A lot of kids just don't want to play for their dads. The Eaves kids are a great example of it. It does hurt going to a rival though
