Update: Sox plated 38 runs in 3 games v. the Yank-me's.
You all know this already, but it sure made us really happy inside.
The boys should all be on campus this week. Next week they have ice time scheduled. It begins.
Red keeping the roster secret or what?

The most important thing he taught me was about caring for your players, and that spending time with your players was more important than what you could teach them. Jim Montgomery on Grant Standbrook @NCAAHOCKEYCOACH @AHCAHockey @collegehockey https://t.co/ZwSh3nllYv

If football is still in the mix at that point, even Durham will be on the plate for the RS finale.
Tough times to be a Maine fan, but hope springs eternal, and I do believe that football has another shot in the coming season.
I'm not nearly as hopeful for hockey, but I will say that Swayman is easily the best goalie that RG has brought-in, and -aside from bone-headed Binner- his D hasn't too looked bad in its own end as a general rule. If the team GAA is below, say, 3, Maine might have a shot at the Garden.
Not holding my breath on that one, and I certainly don't want Red extended again on the basis of an ongoing failure, but a little light at the end of the tunnel would feel refreshing, at least for his successor, and the few of us who still care.
The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlight of an oncoming train.
If Red is renewed, the sky will look green to me, but even more illogical things have happened (globally) ln the past few years, so who knows.
Assuming he's put out to pasture, it would be nice if the cupboard wasn't completely bare for his replacement.
Right now, it doesn't look to be an insurmountable re-build. Red hasn't won much, but he hasn't totally destroyed the program, especially in the context of this modern era of parity.
If Maine had had 3-4 more decent forwards last year, I truly believe that the Bears would have had a shot at the NCAA's.
Time to bring-in someone who can recruit just a little.
