Well the season’s over. UMass won, NU lost, and we’re out of the playoffs. We’ve failed to make the playoffs 2 seasons out of 3, and haven’t made home ice for 4 years. What a waste. A team that should have done good things has been wasted. I firmly believe if Cronin was still here we’d be talking about our push for an NCAA playoff berth and home ice in Hockey East. The point is moot now. Now we’re talking about who we can salvage from this team to try and make a respectable showing next year. That will be a subject broached soon enough. So will an analysis of why we ended up here. For now, it’s time to drink heavily and brood for a day.
Tomorrow will be a fitting end to this season. A team that is out of the playoffs playing a final game in an empty home arena in front of fans that know that the season is over.
