    Re: Maine Black Bears 2010 - 2011

    Another lost weekend at Conte. Maine has 2 weeks to get a PP that can score without Dimmen and O'Neill on the points.

    Dimmen out till Florida Tourney, which sucks but they need him to get healthy.
    I guess its a good thing we only have four HE games until then. Hopefully, we can be back to full strength the first of the year.

    In the offensive zone, they outnumber the opponent on a loose puck, no matter what. Makes no sense.

    as for the PP, yeah, it always predictable, if I can predict what they are going to do, game after game, I am pretty sure Jerry York can. HeknowsEvenMore

    Last, I was not surprised with the game on Friday.
    Maine had trouble with NU,
    tied and lost to a number 20 team(MSU)
    tied UConn
    had trouble with UVM (a winless team at the time)
    trounced UND 5 on4 because UND refused to stop playing playoff hockey and because they had just flown to and from Alaska

    let's see how Timmy can rally the troops and motivate them to come back against a great coach and a good team, I hope he can do it. HOPE
    ...Guts...Maybe NOT...just common Hockey sense...and wins are wins...ugly/lucky whatever they go in the W column for the team as well as it goes to the oppositions column...but then what do I know..? Your the Know it All.

But last year's Sirman is no match for this year's Sirman, and, the playoff run aside, Sullivan'splay inspires more confidence than Dave Wilson.

    If I had to rank the "6" goalies as of this date and time (very much subject to change) I would go

    1. 2009's Darling
    2. 2010's Sullivan
    3. 2010's Sirman
    4. 2009's Wilson
    5. 2010's Ouellette
    6. 2009's Sirman

    so in my book you get numbers 1, 4 and 6 on one side, and 2, 3 and 5 on the other.

    Do you want the group with #1 or the group that looks a little deeper? The wildcard being, what Ouellette can contribute remains to be fully seen.

    Interesting stuff! Hope they give a good game today! Go Blue!
    In no way would I vote for last year. The positive is Sirman is better than last year. Sully is a little better and he should improve with experience.

    Oullette shouldn't be on your list.

    "Everyone" wasn't praising the goaltending. I was hopeful at best and very concerned we threw someone in the number 1 spot after a few games.

    And during the regular shifts put forth a better effort of forechecking and crashing the net.
    The boys should just go out there and take the game rather than hanging around.........................
