    Re: Maine Black Bears 2010 - 2011

    Maine stunk up the joint tonight which goes without saying.....Sullivan was aveage, if he matched Muse you're looking at 1-0 game. Maybe 2-0 but the shorty to Gibbons and the third goal were bad. Maine couldn't win draws and that was killer.....no forecheck at all. Missed Dimmen and O'Neill on the 5x3 badly. If Dimmen's out long term the PP's going to need to be completely retooled strategy wise. Yuck.

    Yes. But as I pointed out previously - our strategy is to make as few adjustments as possible. Make sure our opponents know exactly what to prepare for, and never, ever stir your gameplan to keep the other team guessing. That's just plain cruel.

    Our full proof plan now will be to exclusively play Sirman until he's burnt out.

    That might be as quickly as this coming Saturday, but hey, it might be February! He did make 6 saves after the game was long decided so I'd say his hands are pretty hot. We won't know until we try it.

    Afterall, we can't risk playing that Sullivan kid anytime soon. I mean, remember that ONE rough game he had against Boston College last...er...tonight? We'd be jeopardizing our chances if we played him again.

    TIMMAY!

    Maine's defense gives goal tending a big boost. Today's article by Larry.

    If the Alfond every lost its barn-ness or the awesome acoustics of its roof, I'd weep.

Agganis cost 150 million, the U can't afford a new toilet seat let alone the cost for the updates coming next summer. Thankfully Alfond can and is willing to donate the few million it takes for new ice, boards etc.
    And aren't our seats some of the cheapest in the league? I think I just saw a single-game Merrimack ticket costs close to $30!

    Not sure if anyone posted this yet but I thought this was an interesting quote from Tim Whitehead about the goaltending situation.

    "Dave Alexander, our goalie coach, has done a fabulous job helping these young goalies gain some confidence and improve technically and move forward each week. Dan Sullivan has taken the front spot for now, but Shawn Sirman, who is vastly improved over last year, is pushing him. Martin Ouellette, who might be the most talented of the three, is the youngest and he is going to start challenging for ice time. What is exciting for us is that what was a weakness last year has really become a strength now. It is going to be a long season so I am sure that there will be some ups and downs with the goaltending. We are pleased with their attitude and focus. Their work ethic has been tremendous, improving each weekend. It’s not an accident; they are working hard to get better.”
    -Tim Whitehead 10/16/10
    Thanks for the UPDATE.
