    As for the hockey- it will be interesting to see how this team plays on the road- they looked reasonably together last weekend, and there are no appearances of issues. But those always come up more when you are away from home.
    I'm not sure I'd say no issues. Defense and goaltending look to be our weaknesses for another season. Sure, we won 2 games. But they were against Mercyhurst, at home, with a small goal margin. Michigan was the better team both nights, and shots on goal reflects who handled the play. However, I expected a more dominant team than what I saw.
    If the B1G continues to play the way they have so far, maybe the conference title won't be too much of a challenge.

    Have fun on Friday night fighting for one of the 2 urinals at Achilles or Messa or whatever it's called.

    Will the Michigan band be making the trip?
    Thanks for the advice. You, and everyone else that has made suggestions.
    As for urinals, can't say I've ever used one. It's cute that you assume I'm a guy.
    The hockey band only travels to games at Joe Louis Arena and tournament games (with rare exceptions, such as outdoor games).

    Baltimore is awesome. You don't know what you're talking about.

      I was looking at the long simmering chemistry issues we've had over the past few years- those could get worse during travel, since they spend more time together.

      Hockey wise- goal tending and defensemen being too aggressive on offense are the biggest problems we have right now. Next is the in zone puck handling- but that is a lot better these days, thankfully.

      I think the most obvious thing that we *should* see is the effect of Steve Shields- and if Nagelvoort and Racine improve what's bugging them (rebounds and angles respectively).

        Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

          Good thing you decided to waste everyone's time by trying to be the local guide, then. Tell you what, when Michigan decides to visit that outhouse up in the middle of nowhere they call Potsdam, then you can let everyone know what to do and the rest of us will smartly keep quiet. Sound like a plan? Good.

            I miss the troughs that they had before they installed urinals. (not really)

                            Wow, you weren't kidding about people yelling to sit down. The game hadn't even started yet and we were asked to sit down.

                              There are no words to describe how disappointed I am. 4 years in a row, and still the same old ****.

                              Terrible defense, undisciplined play, not enough effort given until it's absolutely needed.

                              The worst part is, they could still win 25 games and not make the tournament because the B1G sucks a fat one this year.
