BSRS Weekly Awards 11/12

It was a rough weekend for Terrier fans but we all survived and it's time to entertain you by making fun of the rest of the conference. We take some responsibility for the loss Friday just like Coach Quinn did. We have to blog better, chirp better. Sometimes you just have to look yourself in the mirror and admit that you weren't offensive enough on Internet the last week.

The Greg Jennings Award:  given to the Terrier who best exemplifies the qualities of Greg Jennings through doin' shit and putting the team on his back. (YOU CAN'T STOP HIM)

Winner- Nick Roberto, F- There are weeks when it's easy to pick the GJA and other weeks when it's real tough. This is one of the tough weeks but we have to go with Roberto for scoring a goal in his first career game against BC. That is one way to win us over quickly as big fans. 

The Joe Pereira Trophy- Given to the Terrier who, through grit, hard work, and determination helps the team to victory on and off the scoresheet. Just like Joey did. (Interview can be read here)

Winner- Kevin Duane,F-Duane may not be the fastest guy on the ice but he worked his tail off to fight for position in front of the BC net on numerous ocassions and seems to have found his role on the power play as the net front guy. He is playing the role Ryan Santana played so well last season except he is bigger so he is an even better fit for the role. Duane has a great stick and wins more 1x1 battles than he loses.

The Buddy Powers Award- given to the best BU coach of the weekend

Winner-Steve Greeley- While there wasn't much to be happy with on the ice this week, Greeley certainly can't be mad at the recruiting record that he is quickly tallying up. BU picked up two top 30 uncommitted prospects for 2015 last week. Every other school might as well give up if there is a guy out there that Greeley and Quinn want because they're just going to go get him. The two recruits were forward Maxim Letunov and defenseman Vasili Kolias. Both are scheduled to arrive in BU for the 2015 season. 
UPDATE: He picked up Chase Phelps for 2014 this week as well.

The Denny Green Award- Given the player or the team more or less, who is exactly who we thought they were(whether or not they were let  off the hook).

Winner- Merrimack-2'R's,  2 games, 2 goals, 2 losses, 0 ponies. Merrimack in a nutshell. A defensive team that isn't that defensive and has trouble scoring unless they are playing an Atlantic hockey team. I have hard time seeing them making much noise in Hockey East this season unless they find another Stephane Da Costa to light the lamp on a regular basis for them. They are exactly who we thought they were. A team with a terrible offense. 

Barilla Pasta Sieve of the Week- Alex Wakaluk UMass- Our first repeat winner of the season! Wakaluk once again refused to be denied the Sieve of the Week as he allowed 5 goals on 10 shots at home against UNH Saturday night. I repeat myself! 5 saves on 10 shots! At home! This might be the worst start  in the history of Hockey East goalies. His .500 save % GAA over 10 in the game make him an easy and the only choice for sieve of the week.

Grocery Stick of the Week- Adam Phillips, C UMass- Phillips as a top line center for the UMass Minutemen and as a center, is responsible for both ends of the ice. He performed well in neither end this past weekend. He was a -4 over the weekend thanks to his -4 rating on Saturday night in UMass' 9-1 defeat to UNH. Godo job good effort. 

Calhoun/Boeheim Quote of the Week- David Quinn BU - " I feel like I was responsible for a few goals out there. I need to coach better" Coach Quinn taking accountability and  showing in defeat why he is the best coach in the league/country/universe.


  1. You had "best coach" an Buddy Powers in the same sentence. Are you kidding?

  2. Take your Buddy Powers hate somewhere else pal!
