My Personal Bias, But...

Admittedly its a very personal bias, but....

How can you not mention the 92-93 Maine CHAMPION team as possibly the greatest NCAA team in history?

Many, many great players played on that team...and many went on to excellent NHL careers!

Obviously other schools have had guys who had better NHL careers. But for sheer # of quality players and performance, that team MIGHT be the best ever!

Hey Black Eye, whats up?

To answer your question...yes and no.

I redshirted in 91-92. Didnt make the traveling squad in 92-93. I was nothing special in the first place

I played all or parts of the next 3 seasons...1 full, 1 injured 2/3 of the way through and I was suspended for all but 6 games my senior year!

If ya care to know more, PM me...trust me, its not that exciting

Whoa.

My bad.

Yes, that Maine team definitely deserves credit as arguably the best of all time. To come back in the third the way they did against Blaine Lacher and the Lake Superior St. Lakers was unreal.

The only thing I can honestly say in my defense is that I got caught up in the Hrkac Circus back in '87 because my dad bought a satellite dish when the things were still relatively new and quite a novelty. We used to tune into the UND games, and that Sioux squad was quite impressive.

But yes- I was remiss in not giving mention to Shawn Walsh's '93 champs.
