    Time to start the offseason thread? Was hoping it would start on a little more of a positive note...

    Dang. Why did I even bring it up...?

    Perhaps someday this program will learn what it takes to compete in the NCAAs when there are any sort of expectations. 3 number one seeds, 3 simply awful performances. The first one can be forgiven. The last two, not so much. A very, very disappointing end to a season I had hoped initially had great promise, and then came to believe going into March 30th that promise was finally being realized.

    What the he l l happened? How could this team look like one of the weakest teams in the field of those among the 8 who dropped out in the opening round? Only BC looked as unexpectedly bad as we did, and I think they've won enough lately anyway. Will serious questions be asked of Jackson finally? 4 years ago most thought he was on his way to building the kind of program they have at BC. But for every step forward since then there has been at least one step back. The utter failure of the team to respond to anything SCSU did for the final 50 minutes Saturday speaks volumes about the way they were prepared. SCSU proved they were playing good hockey with their subsequent victory over Miami, but they should not have made Notre Dame look like an unexpected autobid out of a weak conference the day before. Yet that's what we looked like.

    Next October we will begin playing under much different circumstances. New teams, new schemes, new travel. How will Notre Dame respond to all those changes? Hopefully a different approach will be taken by the coaching staff since it looked like all the work needed to be done to make the tournament left them with nothing left to give once they got there.

    And congrats to Anders Lee. We'll miss him more than he misses us, probably. There are a couple of forwards who are really going to need to step up their games to make up for his departure.

    Too bad he and the rest of the team mailed it in once they got to Toledo, though. What a waste. Why could they have not done that a week sooner?
    He was very good but they dont vote on the whole playoffs just the 2 games in detroit and Racine gave up 4 goals.

    Not only was it his first goal, but it came on his first shot. He delivered a pretty decent hit in his first shift too, but unfortunately the Jets turned around and scored after Lee's goal...and it was his guy who scored.

    I think the consensus is that Stephen Johns is also likely to bolt. I feel he's the only other legitimate departure.

    Edit: Twitter is blowing up with tweets from his former players et al about his game and goal...but someone needs to tell Jeff Costello that Mr. Hockey is spelled Gord-I-E.

    Well since I was busy all week I didn't see the post about Ander's going to the NHL. Thus it was a huge surprise when I got a text alerting me of this first NHL goal just a few minutes ago. Congrats to him on that but its still a huge blow to the team. Makes me wonder if his move is going to spur movement from others from our "lowly" NCAA team to the big bad NHL

    As klbaum1077 states, even if it were over the entire CCHA post-season, here are the actual stats in that instance:

    Summerhays: 4-0-0, 1.26 GA, .955 save %
    Racine: 5-1-0, 2.17 GA, .911 save %

    Still not justified. But like I said, he's got 4 more games to turn more heads.

    release from Gamblers:

    ANDERS LEE SIGNS WITH THE NEW YORK ISLANDERS

    Former Green Bay Gamblers forward Anders Lee has signed a NHL contract with the New York Islanders. Lee is expected to join the team later this week.
    Lee led the Green Bay Gamblers in scoring during the 2009-10 season with 66 points (35g, 31a) in 59 games played. For his efforts, Lee was named USHL Rookie of the Year. The Edina, Minnesota native followed a strong regular season campaign into the playoffs tallying 22 points (10g, 12a) helping the Gamblers secure a Clark Cup Championship.

    As a freshman, Lee led Notre Dame in goals (24) in 44 games and ranked second on the team with 44 points. For his efforts, Lee was named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team and was a second-team all-CCHA selection. This past season, Lee was named to the CCHA First Team All-Conference scoring 34 points (17g, 17a) in 40 games. In 84 career games at Notre Dame, he amassed 78 points (41g, 37a).

    The Gamblers return home Tuesday, April 2nd as they welcome the Waterloo Blackhawks to the Resch Center. Face-off is set for 7:05pm. For more information on promotions or purchasing tickets visit gamblershockey.com.

    Anders Lee will not be winning a NC at Notre Dame as he signed with the Isles. His behavior in the post-loss presser was puzzling then, but makes more sense now as his head was definitely elsewhere.

    The curse of the CCHA Playoff title vs CCHA Regular Season title strikes again.

    2010- Michigan wins playoff, miami wins regular season. Michigan loses in 2OT in Regional final to Miami *cough bull**** call*
    2011- miami wins playoff, Michigan wins regular season. miami knocked out in first round and Michigan is national runner-up
    2012- WMU wins playoff, Ferris State wins regular season. WMU knocked out in first round and ferris is national runner-up
    2013- ND wins playoff, miami wins regular season. ND knocked out in first round and miami is playing in regional final.

    The real problem is that this team cannot play with expectations. SCSU is a very good team: very fast, Hobey finalist with 3821 points and they are quick and disciplined. ND was completely undisciplined (and while I believe the refs missed 2 interference calls against SCSU, they didn't make up the calls against ND), they passed up obvious shots for who knows what reason, they got beat to every single puck and couldn't pick up the guy on the back door, not once, not twice, but 3 times that resulted in goals.

    They played NOTHING like they had been playing in their unbeaten streak. That play was simple. Battle for the puck, forecheck, take shots and don't take penalties.

    If I never again see this team awarded a #1 seed in the tourney I will be happy. When no one expects much, they prove us all wrong. When we expect something, they...well...prove us all wrong.

    That said, I am happy with the results last weekend in Detroit. I'm happy with the play of certain players this season such as Eric Johnson and David Gerths, and of late, Peter Schneider and Nick Larson. I'm happy that sports affords the ability to start with a clean slate in the next season.

    So here's to wishing Larson, Sam Calabrese, Mike Johnson and Kevin Nugent great success in their future endeavors and as for the rest of the team: I hope this sticks in your collective craw and festers for a long time.

    I doubt that. I think it was more of a case where one team showed up and the other did not. Even the play by play guys on ESPN3 said something to that effect.

    After watching them beat a very hot Michigan team on Sunday, I was a little surprised by this.
