Boston College Daily Links: "Really Just A Divorce"

Boston College spring football review (Notre Dame 247)
"I think more or less it was really just a divorce. It just wasn’t going to work out," [Boston Herald's Rich] Thompson said. "I don’t think they thought they were going to get anything out of him. The knee is too damaged."

Let’s welcome back SBNation blog BC Interruption for a first deep dive in to our 2012 opponent from the ACC, Boston College.

101 Days of BC Football: Josh Bordner, #8 (Soaring to Glory)
What will Bordner’s role be in 2012: doing what he was doing last year, eventually rising to the starting role if Rettig trails off, or holding a clipboard? With Doug Martin taking charge of the offense now, I don’t know. Quarterback-by-committee has never been a favorite thing of mine, and we’re not mid-2000s Florida (see: Leak, Chris and Tebow, Tim), either. Still, one can’t help but wonder if we will see Bordner serving a more significant function on Boston College by the time the season is over.

Always a great read.

"It's impossible to describe watching this all unfold for him," said Panella, an economics major at Bates College who recently returned home to Boxford from a semester spent abroad in Spain. "Nobody can believe it's happening. Even Chris, he probably can't even think about it; he just has to play and think about it later after the season."

Chris Kreider's boldest statements have come on the ice for New York Rangers (Sporting News)
"It's a big stage to come into the league," McDonagh, just 22 himself, said afterward. "Not a lot of guys can do that—come into the playoffs and be effective as he has. And he just goes about his business and is trying to learn. Guys are telling him this and that, and some guys can shy away from it or not think that much about it, but he's all ears."

"It’s convenient to say because that’s the last time we lost," said associate head coach Mike Cavanaugh (North Andover, Mass.). "If you look at that weekend, I didn’t think we played great hockey, but we lost in overtime and we lost with a minute left, I think. The following weekend against UNH, we beat them in overtime and we win with a minute left, so they were pretty similar weekends, except one weekend we sweep and the other weekend we get swept."

From NEHJ: Rookie leaders take steps (New England Hockey Journal)
As expected, the Eagles already have suffered heavy losses even before graduation day. Kreider signed with the New York Rangers in time for their playoff run and canceled his senior season, and Dumoulin also opted out early to sign with Carolina. Leaving at graduation this spring are defensemen Cross — a Bruins prospect — and Edwin Shea (Shrewsbury, Mass.), and forwards Barry Almeida (Springfield, Mass.) and Paul Carey (Weymouth, Mass.), who all were integral parts of the program during their four years. That said, Gaudreau leads a talented group of returning players, including Bill Arnold (Needham, Mass.), who scored 17 goals and 19 assists in a breakout sophomore year, and Milner, who showed emphatically over the last few months of the season that he should enter his senior year as the Eagles’ No. 1.
