I answered the question you asked sparkles. Just because I don't adhere to your sunshine pumping view doesn't make me wrong. Reality is this last season was pretty negative. So if you're not interested in anything negative, you're not interested in reality.

Now one of you answer the question: what makes them impressive?
Skipping the personal bs (sparkles or whatever other childish thing you come up with) no one else seems to share your negativity on this thread.
It appears from your posts you feel it's your personal mission to tear the Seawolf program down.
Everyone else on this thread sees something positive in the Seawolves future.
It will be very interesting to see how you fit in and how you respond when Coach Thomas and the team have the success they are headed for.
Wonder how you'll get over the bridges you appear so intent on burning?
When the ship turns I wonder if Coach and the players will be welcoming you with open arms and wanting to embrace you?
I'm pretty sure I know what people will be thinking when we see you cheering and smiling when the Seawolves win.
I'm not a mind reader, however I think we can anticipate what your response to this post will be.
I hope you find the peace of mind you lack at this point.
It's a GREAT day to be a Seawolf!

What did they do that stood out? They played minutes sure, they got points sure. Their numbers were about average to below average, Tad Kozun 15 pts compared to 20 pts by Matt Bailey, 24 by Jordan Kwas both against significantly tougher teams, a team that worked their * off too. None of them took over a game. None of them showed an ability to lead the team when things got tough. PK numbers were bad (80%), PP was bad (14%), defense was bad (107 GA), blow out games, flat out quiting in games. By what metric were they impressive? What makes them impressive?

I honestly don't think any of the underclassmen quit. Heck, the two goals that were scored last Saturday night were scored by freshmen. You don't consider that an ability to lead the team when they were losing?

Look at the box scores from the Bowling Green game. The freshmen and sophomores were all over the score sheet. And it's not just the fact that the freshmen were scoring, it's how many of them were contributing. It's a solid class. And I disagree with your statement that the former WCHA had "significantly tougher teams". The new WCHA is pretty darn impressive, with ranked teams. Some of those "better" teams who are now in other leagues are struggling mightily.

JJ, I ask you this. What are you trying to prove with your negativity? Do you think this is going to somehow help the program? What is the point?

The personal bs like calling me childish names (negative nellie) and telling me to leave because I don't agree with you? Sure. :rolleyes: I'm the only one posting this stuff because, quite frankly, you and Suze are delusional.

It appears from your posts you feel it's your personal mission to tear the Seawolf program down.
No mission here. Just opinion. And I don't want it torn down, if anything I've shown I want success. But I'm also a realist, there are pRobles and they need to be fixed. Not glossed over and ignored.

Everyone else on this thread sees something positive in the Seawolves future.
As do I. Mantha is good goaltender that has potential and there are solid players. The difference is, again, I'm a realist. These are players that are solid but nothing earth shattering like you seem to think. They can contribute but they will need to work.

It will be very interesting to see how you fit in and how you respond when Coach Thomas and the team have the success they are headed for.
I'll be just the same as everyone else: happy. Will they have success? Hopefully. Will they get it as quickly as you think? Probably not. Even Thomas has talked of rebuilding, something that doesn't happen overnight like you seem to expect.


Wonder how you'll get over the bridges you appear so intent on burning?
If I'm burning any bridges, it's with folks like you, people I don't like being associated with. If you don't like my opinions, I don't really care.

When the ship turns I wonder if Coach and the players will be welcoming you with open arms and wanting to embrace you?
Really? LOL dude. Do you think I care if the coaches and players are willing to embrace me? You truly are delusional. Do you really truly care about what the players and coaches think of you? Because I'm gonna guess they don't.


I'm pretty sure I know what people will be thinking when we see you cheering and smiling when the Seawolves win.
Again, I care what those people think?

Ok maybe you got that right...

I hope you find the peace of mind you lack at this point.

Piece of mind? I've got mind, don't worry about that.

The Coaches radio show is held from 6 to 7 pm the night before the next home game.
It's at the Varsity Sports Grill in the Alaska Airlines Center.
Host Kurt Haider and Coach Thomas always have at least one guest so it makes for a lively and informative time.
It's an open mike type show.
Anyone who has a question or comment is welcome to participate.
There was a very good showing at all the shows this past season.
Hope we get even more fans there for the 2015/16 season.
It's a GREAT day to be a Seawolf!

One game does not a season make. It was a good response, but one well too late after being down 3-0. That was typical of the season, they would respond but only after being down 3+ goals when the other team had dialed it back.

I agree there were contributions, but not at levels you are describing. Again, I believe there is potential but to believe there is going to be a huge turnaround is foolish.


JJ, I ask you this. What are you trying to prove with your negativity? Do you think this is going to somehow help the program? What is the point?
Reality is what I'm trying to provide. You heaping all of these expectations and hype upon a group that realistically may not have the ability.

It is part of my argument of "losing culture." Coming off what has been a rough season, one nobody is happy with, to show positivity and blind optimism towards them is to reward bad performance. There should be an expectation toward hard work and improvement instead. To overstate ability is to instill belief that they are fine where they are. We should be expecting better, not pumping their tires.

So why did you ask it if you already knew the answer?

For the lulz? Insanity? Delusion? Boredom?

Seawolf facebook page has 58 cool pictures posted on it.
Photog followed them all last week.

I watched this game too. Looked like Jay left the game, came back and left again. Hope he's ok.

As for the photos on Facebook, I can't figure out who won the shoot-out competition ... Hubsy or Willy. Neither of them were chosen to give it a try last Sat. night.

Three Seawolves have gone pro. Coldwell signed with the ECHL's Quad City Mallards, a Minnesota Wild affiliate. Docken signed an amateur tryout agreement with the AHL's Springfield Falcons. Allen signed an amateur tryout agreement with Colorado of the ECHL (played tonight at .... the Sully!

Has anyone heard what Cameron and Roy's plans for the future are?

I have to confess that losing the Governor's Cup this year made this season the most disappointing to me in a loooong time. The improve play of the freshmen gives some hope, but the other teams in the WCHA also have some bright spots for next year. The thing that I noticed most about our team this season was that many of the other teams seemed to be in better shape in the third period. I hope the coach makes getting in shape for the next season a high priority.
