Bellows bolting BU for the WHL is a nice outcome for us. Kid struggled to match his hype last year but was a prime candidate for a breakout season.

Kevin Stevens disagrees with your assessment of Bellows chances of having a breakout season.

So BC Admissions denied Eeli Tolvanen admission, thereby turning what was a very good recruiting class into a meh recruiting class. It is amazing to me that having reduced football and basketball to smoldering ruins, the Leahy Administration is now looking to send Coach Champion out on a decidedly down note.

It wasn't BC admissions. According to Mike McMahon who covers the college hockey world, it was an NCAA eligibility issue with the rumor being he didn't graduate from HS (with appropriate credits that NCAA requires).

He’s a damn good coach, even if I’m not crazy about his style of play, or recruiting methods. That would be a huge loss for Lowell.

With Quinn to the Rangers, any early favorites to replace him? Wonder what the recruiting fallout may be.

I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing for BC. Great recruiter of 1st round talent that stays for a year, but a choke artist.

He is a really bad coach. Brilliant recruiter of talent, but has no idea how to motivate it and use it, which makes hiring him to develop talent evidence that Gorton has been on a four week bender with Dolan.You give York Eichel and the talent on that team and you have a reprise or the 2010 BC National Champions. You give York the McAvoy, Keller, Bellows team and you have a repeat of 2012.

The bottom line is that the talent gap between BC and BU was about to close this year anyway, and all things being equal, York has to pay taxes on Quinn when that is the case.

here are some names: http://www.hockeyjournal.com/nehockeyjo ... eId1395933

Occupying the top office at Agganis Arena is one of the top jobs in college hockey. So, who will be the next head coach of the Terriers? Smart money is on Sacco or O'Connell.

Joe Sacco

The Medford, Mass., native just finished his fourth season as an assistant caoch with the Boston Bruins. He spent four seasons as the head coach of the Colorado Avalanche from 2009 to 2013, missing the playoffs three times. He played for the Terriers from 1987-1990 before embarking on a pro hockey career that included 738 NHL games. Sacco only played three seasons with the Terriers so it's unclear if he has a degree and his NHL pedigree would make him a flight risk to head back to the big time.

Jay Pandolfo

Pandolfo starred for the Terries from 1992 to 1996, one of the highest points in program history that included the 1995 NCAA Championship. Pandalfo played 899 NHL games and has been an assistant with the Bruins for the past two seasons and had served in a player development role prior to that. The Burlington, Mass., native would seem to be a good fit, but he has less coaching experience than many candidates.

Albie O'Connell

O'Connell has been an ace recruiter for several college programs, including the Terriers the past four years. Prior to that he was an assistant at Harvard, Northeastern, Merrimack, Niagara, Holy Cross and Colby. The Watertown, Mass., native played for BU from 1995 through 1999, including captaining the Terriers as a senior. He has the unfortunate burden of being labeled a "recruiter," but he'd be a great hire to help with continuity and continue the pipeline of terrific talent heading to Agganis Arena.

Clark Donatelli

The Providence, R.I., native spent three seasons playing for Parker's Terriers from 1984 to 1987 before spending the 1987-88 season preparing for the Olympics. He played a few seasons of pro hockey has been a head coach in the Penguins' organization for the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL) and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (AHL) since 2011-12. Donatelli has also served as a coach for the U.S. at the Ivan Hlinka and other youth tournaments in the summer.

Steve Greeley

The Scituate, Mass., native is destined to be a NHL general manager so this is unlikely, but it would be wrong to not include him as a candidate. The Buffalo Sabres Assistant GM left his role as an assistant coach at BU following the 2014-15 season to join the New York Rangers in a player personnel role. Prior to his stint as an assistant at BU, the 2004 Terrier alum had been a pro scout with the Los Angeles Kings.

Scott Young

The Clinton, Mass., native and former first round pick played in 1,322 NHL games after playing two seasons with the Terriers from 1985-1987. Young has been a head coach at the prep level with St. Mark's and was an assistant at BU from 2014-2017. He spent the past season as an assistant with the U.S. Olympic team and as the Director of Player Development with the Penguins.

Shawn McEachern

The Waltham, Mass., native played over 1,000 NHL games and played in the Olympics after a standout three-year career with the Terriers. He spent two seasons at each Northeastern and UMass Lowell as an assistant before being the head coach at Rivers the past eight years.

Anyone know if Albie O'connell had an older brother that was a BC guy but not a hockey player?

bc is rumored to get a huge commit for this fall, oliver wahlstrom who is projected to be a top 10 pick next month (if he shows on campus, i have no idea on odds)

he went viral about 10 years ago:




6. Oliver Wahlstrom, RW, USA Under-18 Team-USHL

June 13, 2000 | 6-foot-1 | 205 pounds

GP: 62| Goals: 48 | Points: 94 | Shoots: Right

Skating: 55
Puck Skills: 60
Physical Game: 50
Hockey sense: 55
Shot Grade: 70

Wahlstrom has been one of the best snipers to pass through the USNTDP in its history and is the best pure goal scorer in this draft class. While everyone knows him for his shot and goal scoring ability, he has a very desirable combination of high-end skill and physical attributes to go with his shot. Wahlstrom has the capability to carry a line due to his skill and creativity, and generates a lot of clean entries. He’s more of a shooter than a playmaker, but he can certainly make tough passes when he needs to. Wahlstrom has an elite shot and can score from a distance, with a special instinct in terms of seeing shot lanes develop and knowing how to beat goalies. He puts himself in spots to get his deadly one-timer and wrist shots through. His shots on goal totals this season are off the charts and equal to the best snipers to ever play in the USHL and/or USNTDP at his age. He’s OK defensively, I’ve seen him be passable on the PK and, while he can be strong on the puck, he’s not going to throw his body around a ton. He can skate fine, although I think sometimes he plays slower than he should, but he can get around the ice without issue and push defenders back off zone entries.

USNTDP U18 coach Seth Appert said: “He’s a big, strong, explosive power forward who is a goal scorer. His combination of strength, power, speed and shot as a right shot is unique. He’s a world-class goal scorer. He’s got the one-timer or the snapshot to beat goalies from the perimeter. He’s adding the ability to drive to the blue paint to score goals to his game.”


https://theathletic.com/342438/2018/05/ ... aft-board/


A sensational scoring threat, Oliver Wahlstrom is a fierce competitor that preys on weak play. He exploits gaps in the neutral zone; his positioning allows him to carry the puck forward immediately or shift up and into stride off of an outlet pass. He promptly takes easy lanes away from the opposition along his own blue line, but could stand to be more proactive defensively. Offensively, he might be described as uncontainable: the confidence he has in his individual puck skill, paired with a high level of thinking, makes him a difficult cog to take out of alignment. He is able to create opportunities for himself, as well as teammates, out of nothing; this, in turn, translates to energy on the ice and in the building as a whole. All-in-all, Oliver Wahlstrom is an instinct-driven hockey player gifted with the size, skating, skill, and smarts that coaches yearn for.
