Don’t you stay at home anyways?

Some teams perform better on the road too.

For the first time in 26 years we are staying home. The long drive was getting old (especially to see the team lose). IF they turn it around and start winning games, we may once again grace them with our presence. ;)

I am sure the WCHA said but look at the bright side .......

1. For 2 months you don't have to write that check every week for $17.5

2. Look at all the airline miles your players are accrueing,BTW...... that is something that the league needs to look into to force UAA to share those with the end of the road bus people.

3, Besides you can go to the Legion and watch live and scarf up popcorn and world class award winning tap water for free ,all with in 200 feet of a bus stop. (most of our end of the road hick fans can only dream of a freeloader event like that.)

So please do explain in small words to us how you think your getting dry gulched ?

UAA is that hot girlfriend you had in college, everything was going good until she "made it" into a company that was say, out of her league. Every single year more pounds were put on, her attitude deteriorated more every year. For 25 years. Yeah she got into yoga that one year, but she also got let go and found a lesser company that shockingly still seems out of her league.

I choose to end the abuse this season, tell me what we are missing out on? Blown out the first night, come back and closely win the second night. I've seen that for 25+ years.

Despite the loss, I saw a lot of good things tonight for the Seawolves. Last year they couldn't win a faceoff to save their souls, but this year we are dominating in that area. They played hard for a full 60 minutes. Around the 10 minute mark of the 3rd period UAA looked like they were on a power play when it was 5 on 5. Carlson looked solid in net, I don't think we should be too concerned with the netminders. We aren’t getting outshot like last year either, the guys are working hard.

Their power play really needs tweaking though. And we need a sniper. The NCAA better hurry up and decide Butcher's fate. He is no longer on the roster. Not a good sign!

Just learned that the NCAA ruled against Butcher. Poor guy only played 2 1/2 years of hockey. I feel so bad for him and for UAA. They really needed him. Good luck Alec, it was fun watching you for half a season. :(

I know nothing about the CCHL. And I don't ever recall getting a player from that league.

What a depressing game tonight. I thought UAA actually played better last night. How do you lose on Friday and then be SO FLAT on Saturday? The guys were standing around, couldn't pass the puck, couldn't beat the opponent to the puck, etc, etc, etc.

The CCHL is an Eastern Ontario Junior A league; most teams are in the Ottawa area or not far away from there. Decent league; mostly recruited by schools out East or to a lesser extent the Midwest. Carleton Place has been the strongest team in the league in recent years. The CCHL produces some pretty good college players; Carleton Place in particular has had a lot of Div 1 recruitment activity the past few years.

Well there ya go! Thanks Bill! I grew up in northern NY, not terribly far from Ottawa (about a 2 hour drive). Cold winters up that way. Sounds like UAA is broadening their recruiting horizons.

Although I was not depressed I was disappointed with that first period. We were dominated by a team ready to play and we weren't. Some may put that on the coach however in my mind it's the guys on the ice that either produce or they don't. We didn't produce.
1 last minute goal in 6 periods of play won't produce a winner. We need the guys (not one guy) to step up and get the puck in the net.
All that said it's my opinion this team is heads and shoulders above our teams of the past few years.

It's because of the new coach.

Sounds similar to statements made in the first years of Thomas and Shyiak...wonder what they’ll be saying in year #5...

Time for a new coach, third time is the charm let's hire another Matt.

Again: doing the exact same thing and expecting a different result, is the definition of insanity.

Recruiting budget needs to double, and we need a new arena/major upgrades to the Sully, or retrofit the Wells Fargo, or even retrofit the AAC. No more live airing or even tape delay of games on GCI channel 1, better yet do that for all sports let's increase attendance system wide. Or go the Hawaii Football route and charge ridiculous amounts for live games PPV style, wonder if anybody would pay $15/$10 for one hockey game PPV. Force people to show up. $10 tickets for every seat at the Sully, wet side/dry side. That's where I would start.

Actually GCI isn't airing any UAA sports right now. It's too costly for them. There is no money for a new arena, and UAA has said a retrofit of the Farg won't work, not enough room. Doubling the recruiting budget may help, but UAA's budget is quite a bit larger than our rivals to the north, and they out recruit UAA year after year.

I myself had these same sentiments, but after watching the team last night I no longer feel that way. It was the same old thing. The opponent appeared to want the win more than UAA did. Carlson played amazing, I will give credit where credit is due. However, too many players were not giving 100%, and that's what it takes to win in ANY league.

I agree with Suze. Last night they looked much like the UAA of last season. Carlson was awesome, but got hung out to dry. I hope with some time and the new coach they can turn it around.

I wonder why UAA got rid of the Alaska Airlines puck shoot? Now it’s like they just have random students do some sort of relay or race on the ice at intermission. The puck shoot was great and now they’ve taken away a main highlight for fans going to the games.

Called it, also called the end of the Great Alaska Shooutout since GCI got sold to out of state interests. Could've sworn I've seen something on gosewolves.com about sports living air on GCI, but we all know about that route of misinformation.

Retrofit will work at the Farg and AAC, it would just be expensive. But, the Sully will continue to lose money and who has to pay for it....the city. Meanwhile, they keep pouring money into the Sully. When will they smarten up?

How well is UA_ doing? They are 0-7, while we are 1-5...and we have scored the same amount of goals...

And, just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

Don't get me started about Seattle Airlines either. Alaska is not the same anymore, once the price of oil dropped it exposed the state as corrupt and stupid with no concept of foresight or diversifying it's income.

We are 0-7-1 thank you very much haha

But we’ve also played three straight weekends against top ranked teams. Hopefully that experience carries over positively to the rest of the WCHA play for the Nanooks.
