the NCAA Tourney streak, but they will likely post the record of being Red's worst team topping the teams that only won 12, 13, and 14 games circa 1983-86 with far fewer NHL draft picks and (obviously) USNTDP players.
It's quite the ordeal for this team to score 3 goals in a game, and another ordeal to allow less than 3 goals per game. CCHA teams seem to average 2.5 goals/game, but with our defensive play and goaltending, teams score 3.5-4 goals against Michigan. Can't really tell who the first line is, and it seems there are two fourth lines as the third line only scored in October.
A tasty January with a record of 1-6 along with the exhibition loss. Team leaders are very quiet in terms of on-ice performance. This team has fallen off a cliff considering the successes of each of the past three teams that most of these players contributed to. How long will the recovery take? I'd say another year without the NCAA's and a return in the 2014-15 season. The 13-14 recruits will be relied upon heavily, but the team will need to improve in every area. I'd have a hard time identifying leaders for next years team as well.
