    I feel pretty good about Jacob Fowler and the defense next year. In most games BC was outshooting opponents but not quite getting enough saves/defensive consistency. I think the defense will be a good group next year. Then you add in the firepower coming in with Gauthier returning as well. I think it sets up for a return to the NCAAs if things go as planned. I would imagine they are still in the market for a portal forward. We'll see.
    I think they're going to be very good next year. It all depends on Fowler in my mind. If he's the guy, which it looks like he very well could be, they should be right with BU at the top of hockey east and should make a run in the NCAAs. I'm expecting very big things from this recruiting class

    I do expect them to add another center, whether it be through the portal, a recruiting flip or someone unexpected like a European

    Well, Minnesota's goalie turns 25 next month. He probably should have done better on both goals in regulation.

    Great goal to win it for QU. Overall, a very boring game. I wonder if this will reignite the B1G to put an age limit in college hockey. No more 24-25 year old players. Both Michigan and Minnesota got physically manhandled by QU. Lots of hype about how great the West was and especially the B1G this year.

    Go Eagles!

    It was the golden age of BC hockey. We still bring high end talent but early departures and COVID changed the landscape for everyone. I think loosing Kuntar and Nesterenko really sets us back for next year. We will be good but we could have been so much better if they stayed.

    Pretty crazy to think about how spoiled we were during the insane golden age of BC hockey. Consider this, BU made just their third FF since the start of the 1997-1998 season. That was my freshman year and we went to the FF every single year. And since that season, 12 FFs overall in the 25 seasons in that timeframe. Heck we have more titles than BU has FFs in that span.

    The success was so front-loaded in that era. It's now 7 years without an NCAA win. 4-5 record in their last 9 NCAA tournament games. Really hope we can get back there next season and quite frankly, also win Hockey East.

    I think he's getting his degree this Spring. Probably had taken some college classes while still in Juniors. Graduating from Lake State in 3 years.

    Pretty cool to see Boldy turn into a star in the NHL in real time. What he's been doing the past month has been stupid

    I sorted out the Kuntar signing - it doesn't start until next season and since the NHL contracts are based on what age they are on Sept 15 of the year the contract is signed that would mean Kuntar will be 22 and thus has to sign a 2 year ELC. Since the contract doesn't start until 2023-24 season it doesn't count for this season contracts so Bruins still are at 49/50 contracts and space for one more (Lohrei?).

    Ya no thanks. College hockey would lose 30 more players each recruiting cycle to the CHL, other junior leagues and Europe. I’d rather watch players for a year or two then not at all
    I guess it comes down to if you want to see Adam Fantilli, Jack Eichel etc for a year or have more stability with players you know you'll get for at least three. I can understand the argument. When you are extremely lucky to get three years out of anyone with even the slightest pro potential it is definitely discouraging. But hey what it really comes down to is if your coach knows what he is doing with roster construction to get you in a position to be a consistent winning program.

    "I am not an expert on the the nuances with the nhl contracts and the loopholes that’s for sure. It is possible they agreed to a 2 year contract that kicks in next season as he will be 22 in June then can sign a 2 year deal instead of a 3 year deal 21 year olds must sign.

    You are correct and is same as contract that Jayden Struble signed with Montreal. He's with AHL team for rest of this season, then jis 2 year kicks in.

    It has turned into franchise management, there is nothing about this that is good, except that the athletes who bring in the revenue now have a way of getting compensated. There is no going back and I think it is going to get a lot worse in the years to come. Hockey not so much because it has limited appeal and minimal revenue attached to it but bball and fball is going to go through some serious changes.
