What can you say? Amazing, amazing turnaround with this team. I thought they were dead in the water near the end of the regular season, and Gerbe had lost all semblance of dominance. The total, abrupt turnaround from the HE tourney to the championship? Man, I'm so proud to wear my BC hoodie today (I always am, but this is extra-special). I think many would agree with me that this year's team was not as talented as last year's, either. This one is for guys like Schneider and Collins that were just a couple of bounces away from the title. I really hope Gerbe comes back- we'll be preseason favorites for sure, and one of the most dominant teams in the nation without question. It doesn't mean a repeat, because we all know how tough it is to make things go your way come April (BC '07, Michigan '08, etc.), but it would be great to see essentially the same core have another go at it, especially with the talented class we have coming in (and are Motherwell and O'Hanley coming back? How pissed are they?!). EagleinAtlanta said it, and he's dead-on- we should not take BC Hockey for granted. We've been blessed for years, and look to be in phenomenal shape for years to come. I hope the current students appreciate what they can see just yards from their dorms every winter, because it truly is one of the best (THE best) programs in the nation. Thanks, guys, and I can't wait for '08-'09! Go Eagles!

Congratulations from a UNH fan. You guys played some tough teams all the way down the stretch and pulled it together well at the end. I was particularly impressed to see you guys knock off Minnesota, Miami and North Dakota.

See ya next season!
