    The news on Neal is of major concern to me. I really felt he would be a major contributor to this team rather quickly. But more of a problem is the extent of his injury. If it is indeed an ankle-he may be looking at a lost year. My experience has been that ankle injuries ar either minor or major with almost nothing in between. Sometimes a break is better than a sprain in these cases. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we get to see him back on the ice in short order but my fear is that this could be really very serious.
    The news on Cullen is of course something else we do not need, but until we know for sure how long he will be sidelined, we can just hope this is a one game sort of thing.

Oh, the juniors and seniors aren't producing? Let's turn to the younger ones. Heck, we're far enough into the season, and they're acclimated. Let's see what they can REALLY do.
      I am pretty sure we are at a stage now where it is mandatory to turn to the freshman for offense. I also agree that we need to use this little break to make major changes in the power play and the break out plays from our own end. I agree with you, EHF and B-12. We really have gotten far enough into the year.

        WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING?!

        But seriously, we have had more non-game injuries than injuries from games. What is going on in those practices?

          Finally -- people who understand/agree with me that Bailen should no longer be a defenseman!

            It really sounds like we are looking at a Red Shirt situation.

              I think if you read the article again you'll see that Cullen's injury happened in the Union game. Anyone going to the RIT game? Is there a place to get together for eats/drinks before the game?

                    Interesting idea. I wouldnt mind if SA tried this out in one of the remaining NC games this season and see how it works.

                      I'll see you there (make sure you find me because I have something to give you)...I'm going to be there with my nephew's wife and maybe her family (my nephew is an E.R. physician and has duty that night. Doc...do they have "duty' in hospitals or is it referred to as something else?)...I will have on my crimson for this one...the boys are gonna' break out...hope you and I are not the only two to witness it...

                        When I was an intern and had to work the ER for a month-we called it the 'pit'. It was the hardest i had ever worked in my life. 36 hours on straight and then 12 hours off. But i never felt better in my life. Never a dull moment. Yes, we did use the term'on duty' for any shift-both doctors and nurses.

                        I sure hope this is the break out game for the offense. But if not this game-please make it happen in Princeton so we can celebrate each goal!!!

                          Oh, I missed that. My fault. Though, the question still stands. Higgs, O'Grady, McGowan, Merriam, Burgdoerfer, and Neal were all hurt during practice.

                              It's an easier trip than Troy. I'll be there.

                                My nephew isn't interning...he's been doing it for years...one of those adrenalin junkies...earned his undergraduate at Union and medical degree at Albany Med so it's a bit bizarre...
