Summary:

After a pretty ridiculous year with arrests and departures midyear, BU managed to retain home ice and made it to the Garden. During the off season they lost Justin Courtnall and Adam Clendening to early departures. Despite that, they brought in a lot of great talent, and retain a number of top-scoring players from last year. BU’s biggest question is goalies: they have 2 new guys who will fight for the top spot, so we’ll see how well that might go.

BU has a lot of offensive potential, and a solid defensive corps. Assuming their goalies do a halfway decent job, BU should have no problem keeping a home ice berth.
