Maybe they should have sent AJ Treais to speak for the team, talk about his contribution for the night.
Half way through the season, things can change like BG's run last March, but there is no evidence of that happening. Put the past behind and work on winning one game at a time, but they are defeated. Can't physically stand up to others and aren't mentally strong enough to deal with the chirping and agitation on the ice about their poor play to date.
The senior class as freshmen were one disallowed goal away from the Final Four. The junior class as freshmen were one goal away from an NCAA title. The sophomore class as freshmen finished 2nd in the CCHA as a #1 seed. The current freshman class are on a team that has fallen off a cliff. Gradual regression this season might be on the wrong side of the NCAA bubble, not near the basement of the CCHA.
11 NHL draft picks, 8 players from the NTDP with no glue to make this a team.
Can they finish above .500, or even sing The Victors once this year meaning a weekend sweep?
