    It was Cerniglia who's going to Anchorage from Pasadena.

    Barry? In ALASKA? Seriously?

    ROTFLMFAO

    I've seen this a lot on TV this season, part of it just might be the economy. I watched the Friday game and was shocked to see large sections of empty red seats. Almost as bad as watching UAA's ugly yellow seats. I feel your pain.

    Mersch, Woz, John Mitchell, all improved markedly under Eaves.

    he definitely has a solid plan on the bigger, lankier players, or it's the system? either way they've improved under him

Put Derek Lee between Zent and Schier, or between Ranheim and Tuttle, or put Mersch with Heatley and Reinprecht, or Granato and Houston. For cryin out loud even Hukalo looked like everything when he was with Heatley and Reinprecht. The guy wouldn't be more than a 3rd liner on THIS years team. Different times and different teams. Time to let it go.
    what are you talking about? ...those teams were great because the ENTIRE team(s) was/were loaded, Zent wasn't alone, etc. If you're attempting to make an argument about Derek Lee I don't buy it. he's had 4 years here, hasn't done much. Zengerle has played on the same terrible team's but he's done quite a bit.

    Mersch is interesting. I find him to be much like Winchester. good, not great. however if he scores 25 goals this year (attainable) and then repeats it next year I'll stand corrected.

    as for my comparisons, what do you want me to use? other teams players? I mean for eff's sake if your team is filled with lesser talent and you're evaluating to teams that WERE great in the past.. I mean, what you/we should stop comparing? gimme a break

    With 4000 less season ticket holders, interest in hockey, for whatever, is simply declining.

    I'd argue UW has 2 guys that are superior talents: Zengerle and Kerdiles.

    Mersch is good but he's like a Jack Skille to me, enigmatic and he doesn't control play. He'd be a 3rd liner on a National Championship Team.

    Derek Lee to me isn't even in the equation. he's the Nick Checco (rat player) or Niki Siren...came in with hype, really hasn't done much.

    I'm sure I'll catch heat for this and that's fine, but this team just has a *severe* lack of talent, AND the hyper-intensive emphasis on forwards being aware of their defensive play leads to tentative offense and 0 creativity as we've seen all season long.

    Most of us saw Dany Heatley and Steven Reinprecht play at UW. Some of us saw , Zent, Fairchild, Schier, Moore, some of us saw Tony Granato, Scott Mellanby, Steve Tuttle, Paul Ranheim et al play prior to that.

    there isn't a player on this team that can match any 1 of the guys above. not 1 (caveat - unless Kerdiles stays 3 years and explodes offensively). If Eaves intends to stay he needs to land more Besse's, Earl's and Pavelski's and he needs to do it in bunches asap (I think) in order to retain his job.

    The sucky part is now after today there is yet another layoff period. It just seems like UW can't catch a break with injuries/suspensions and the schedule as far as getting guys rolling cohesively. I must assume Zulinick will be back also at the start of the 2nd half.
    I'm not sure that the break is a bad thing, give everyone a chance to get healthy, the coaches a chance to break down tape in detail and devise ways to make improvements, and give the team some time to practice togeather as a team. Hopefully they can come out of the break firing on all cylinders and make a great 2nd half run (which would be a first for an Eaves led team).

    he's got a lot riding on his shoulders. Would a freshman Heatley perform better? yes, but he's a once every 10-15 years type of player so that comparison shouldn't be made. Kerdiles is great and I think he'll become more a Robbie Earl type if he stays. that's good enough for this fan, he just needs some semblance of an actual SUPPORTING CAST, it's just too bad that what little forward talent that is lined up will be coming in in dribs and drabs and he'll miss most of it unless he stays 3-4 years. Dvorak and Malone would be frosh in his junior season (IF he stays that long)
    Heatley was a beast and I agree it isn't fair to compare Kerdiles to him. If he stays on the same line as Zengerle (which will most likely happen) he will get his goals. Zengerle is too good of a playmaker for Kerdiles not to get at least 15 goals this year.
