    Agreed. Bruins would have been swept without Swayman, who was sensational in his six games against the Leafs.

    Lindholm finally did something to earn his $6+ mil/yr salary with his goal and then setting up Pasta for GWG in OT.

      Agreed. The Bruins also should have over $20 mil of cap space to spend and even more if they can unload Ullmark and Lindholm.

            Surprised that neither Wilmer & Ambrosio have not picked a new place to play...UMaine still needs to add a #3 goaltender(?)...unless there's another goaltender coming in besides Berzin thru this year's recruiting list..(?).

            • Watching Swayman is so much fun. He’s so focused and cat quick. Bruins taking care of business tonight.

                How could Maine have not won a NC with Swayman?

                • Anyone know if Andrew Kuzma committed to another program or what his future plans are?

                    First game he played in orono it sure looked like he had alot of potential, just something about his fundamentals and confidence. There was talk on this forum at the time wondering if he was going to be good, lol.
                    He sure developed nicely while at maine and was smart to stay until ready, not to mention enjoy the college hockey time while he could.

                        Red Gendron didn’t build and coach up the team in front of him. The one season where they were decent and headed for ncaa playoffs, Covid canceled the season. Red was a likable guy, and the players liked him, but he wasn’t very strong at putting together a winning line up.

                        • Always thought Nyquist and Abbott had good cases for the Hobey when they were nominated but it's criminal that Swayman didn't win that award.

                            I am not sure on those two transfer forwards. There could be a bit of interest from multiple teams and they want to do a visit or something.

                            It appears as though Syzszka isn’t ready to come in with an 0.85 save percentage in USHL. Likely needs another year to see if he can progress. Berzins played quite well. It is interesting because he played in a rotation with a goalie that had better save percentage. So he is used to being in a rotation. I’m happy with the future of our goaltending. I think for the #3 goalie they would need to add a developmental project that isn’t expecting playing time(similar to Mundinger). Or maybe Androlewicz comes back from the portal?

                              According to Madison's website, he is still a Maine commitment.

                                If you check their line sheets on X/Tw*tter, you'll see he's uncommitted.
