Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Malden Catholic and Central Catholic are in exactly the same boat! If you ask why? Because KB and JM used the two schools for their personal gain; promising to get kids to the next level and while raking in the cash along the way and pushing kids to their private Maxx Dynamic Skating Business. The 2 schools should be ashamed of themselves, letting these 2 creeps get away with that. The CC and MC Athletic Directors should be fired, but hey they had a nice run in the Super 8 for all those years and now they look like fools.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

MC in rebuild mode. Will be top 3 in CC next year now that the right people are in place. Hey they beat Xavier from CT.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Right people in place???.. got blown out by a sub-par Mt St. Charles 7-2 today..

They're terrible with a terrible unqualified coach that no kid in their right mind would want to play for.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Same thing going on at Central Catholic...these 2 once Super 8 programs get run into the ground by selfish, greedy people and left for dead!

central had a max exodus after their head coach moved on (x2).

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Which catholic recruited Russian players for years? Was it Central or another? Whichever team it was I'm sure those Trump supporters can get behind all those Russian players.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

MC going to surprise everyone next year. Verbal commits from game changers. Just need to complete the application process. Heads will turn.. Bringing CC hockey back. Just watch....

I hope that includes the coach too. Current coach is not a game changer and not an attraction to go there.

As for players, any "game changers" out there are not going to MIAA schools anymore...just watch...

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

They may get a few very young good players who will use the school as an inexpensive stepping stone to get to the next level. That is exactly what has happened at Central and MC, they play for a couple of years and then take off when they are 16 or 17 to repeat at prep school (for those who have a brain) and junior hockey. It just so happened in the case of Central and MC the coaches took off with them. They did not need the school any longer for marketing purposes promising playing time for those who attend their skills sessions and summer camps. Who are the real dummies in this situation the Athletic Directors for allowing their school to be used for private gain, unless of course they get a little kick back on the profits.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

The dude brings high energy, excitement,praise and dignity to the bench. You watch, deals in the works. MC will be a hot destination for those in the area

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Blown out yet again by a not so strong X 7-2..

Yeesh. They're 1-9.

Looking at the schedule, there might be one win left against D2 LS.

So ZERO wins this year against Mass D1 teams.

Buh-bye... I don't think the 95 Giants are an option next year either...

Total disaster of a program at this point.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Now 1-16..

Not sure they beat D2 L/S to avoid going 1-19

That will be 2 jobs he'll get canned from inside 6 months.

Back to b-level summer tourneys with the Blackhawks i guess...

How MC hired this guy is astonishing.

Going from state titles to this far in the basement has to be some kind of record in this short of time.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Loss 11-1 to Pope last night. It was hard to watch. I feel for those kids and give them credit for showing up and at least trying.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Brutal.. but that's what happens when you get a perfect storm of watered down talent and horrific coaching

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Must have been some long standing bad blood between these teams to let this happen. Flash should get called into the Head Master's office for this display .

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Rumor has it that MC has already been called "to the principals office" over some of his actions this season. I really thoughthoped he'd be on his best behavior this year. Horrible record, some very upset parents, and in watching a game, some players obviously tuning him out. At this point, I wonder what Vegas is giving for odds on him making it to year 2?

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

He's done. No way anyone can justify bringing him back.

It's not like he's got a stellar coaching resume or record to sell them on.

1-19. That's just amazing

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Buiuurp....

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

So is the MC coach making it to a 2nd year????

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

MC gave MC the 🥾?

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

You got some info?

As another poster already stated...no "game changers" are going to MIAA schools anymore. Even if MC gets "good" again (relative to MIAA), no one in the hockey world cares. Make all the deals you want...

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Give the guy until November 23rd of next season before you start making comments about him. He was in a tough spot coming in late most the top players took off to other schools/ midget teams. High School hockey might be dead but he will get the program back to being a good high school spot for younger kids to play for a year or two before moving prep. If the school wants to be a power house again they will need to move to Mount St Charles model to make this happen if the school truly wants the best of the best again.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

MC on right path. Some talk of reuniting his all star coaching squad from the fall. MC good leader but the other guys will wreck anything they touch. ( have )

What all-star coaching staff from the Giants? Bozos..

MC got FIRED from the job after a week.

RL canned him and the other guy, took the team over out of desperation before the other half of the team who weren't his kids (the better players) bolted.

If Malden Catholic had any brains they'd cut bait now before it becomes 100% irrelevant, not just 98% like today. But clearly they don't cause they didn't vet MC in the first place. Because if they had, they would have found out what everyone in rinks all over Mass know already.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

In programs like MC or other Catholic Conference teams, just how much pull do the boosters have? Generally are they alumni or just current player's parents? Do they raise a bunch of $ annually or is it funded 100% by the school? You would think a bunch of past players would be interested in the collapse of their h.s. program.

I've known MC for years & genuinely like him outside of the rink. That said, the exact opposite is true. He needs the other coaches for any chance at success. MC has never liked talking to or dealing with parents once he gets a player on a team and that doesn't work in recruiting schools. (It also didn't work for him with youth and tournament teams) He needs his coaches to maintain a positive relationship with them.

The real question is, can he go a season without doing or saying something to the players that gets the attention of Brother T? His track record since Mites would indicate no.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

The guy is in over his head. Didn't succeed at a D3 school no shot he does it at MC.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Fundamentally sound, good with kids, understands the game, has experience and is a good recruiter. Program knows what is doing, will turn things around in short order and will surprise many. Dont judge book by its's cover they say. Was stud player in his day and i expect his wisdom will rub off on his players and within 4 yerars will be battling for a title.

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Good with kids..are you f'n serious with that? That is one of the funnier posts of the year. You obviously haven't spoken to any family whose kid he coached. Talk to some of the kids from his last two disasters and tell me if they think he's "good with kids". He'll get next year because he needs a chance to "bring in his own players" and I don't care if they go 20-0, he'll still get the axe because of how he is with kids.

sounds like your boy didnt make his team somewhere along the way. Proven track record of delivering and no disputing that. kids will block shotrs for him, go the extra distance and look up to him as a result of his leadership and how he treats them

New AD will bring in his own guy.

Cut by him no, played for him yes. Can he teach the game and motivate kids, absolutely, particularly in the short term. Does he hold his players accountable, absolutely. Can he communicate with kids, absolutely not. Does he occasionally cross the line and endanger kids long term health in the name of a W, absolutely.

I'm happy that you think you've found the missing link that will return MC to relevancy, I hope so because high school hockey needs a jolt. How does that old saying go "a leopard never changes it's spots" or something like that. He's been let go from every organization he's been a part of in two seasons or less and if he can coach, and kids love him, ask yourself why?

His most recent dismissal from a split season team was not his fault. He had some guys around him that he later learned were the problem and anyone could see that

Re: BCH 15 / MC 1

Guy deserves a chace to prove his doubters wrong. Will have new squad next year and his doubters will eat their words.Good move by the school bringing in one of the better hockey minds north of Boston.

I hope he succeeds, like the NBA needs strong teams in Boston & LA, high school hockey needs MC, AC, SJP to be strong but it's not just last season's team he was dismissed from. Go talk to some parents from the Merrimack Valley area, he's been let go from every program he's been a part of after 1 or 2 seasons. I already agreed with you that he has a solid background, he knows hockey, he can motivate kids in the short term and does a great job of holding his players accountable and he always has. So why can't he stay anywhere long term?

I have no doubt he's going to bring in a strong class next year and his record will reflect that influx of talent but I also know his history.
