        This one's on the coach. It was his call. And I'm with you ... I'm mystified.

            I literally have no clue what you do with the kid now. He's a liability because of his lack of composure.

            Seemingly every night he plays, he good for at least one penalty because of his temper.

            On top of that, he's all bark and no bite. He is a terrible enforcer. Every time he gets challenged, he disintegrates like tissue paper in a rain storm.

              It feels like we're already at some sort of tipping point. With all of the calls for Anastos getting canned last season and Hollis having to go out on a limb to defend and retain him, how do they justify that opening weekend?

              The tipping point is that this next series is against Denver, who stands a likely chance of picking us up and throwing us like a football over yonder mountains. With all of the doubt about the program, could 2 horrible weekends to start this season cause the team and the fans to give up in October? That had to have been a very humbling experience up in the Soo for a group that is probably already as humble as a team can be.

                There's something to be said for what he endured physically early as a Spartan. Head injuries can - in many instances - change a person's zeal for "walking the walk" when it comes to being physical, let alone willingness to give up your body to make a play. Not a good combination without showing a little self control.

                          So, any predictions for this weekend? Improved? Pain?

                          I will not be able to attend Friday's game as I will be doing something I know will be awesome rather than potentially excruciating. I will be keeping close watch of a game fracker on my phone, though. The last time I did that, I watched LSSU go up 4-0 in a period while I watched the football team unravel directly in front of me.

                          I am not sure what to expect. Rough games happen but both of them?That usually means one team is not ready for the level of competition and Denver is likely much stronger than LSSU. If we can keep these games competitive I will consider them a W. I noticed that 5 of 6 defenseman Saturday were freshman. That is a recipe for disaster if i'be ever seen one.

                          Fri: 4-2 Denver
                          Saturday: 8-2 Denver

                          Saturday gets away from us.

                          Edit: heh, game "fracker." Extracting the stats gasses from the game.

                            The National Anthem will be beautiful, then it's downhill from there.

                            I predict there will be lots and lots of rotating red lights. I predict boos. Then booze. People who want to smoke cigarettes will not be able to. About the 3rd period, concessions will report record-low sales. As for on the ice, one or two Spartans will be shown the gate and won't dress for the next game. Some guy named Wright will get a chance to snag some rubber. The synchro team will receive the loudest cheers.

                                I am not sure why Wright has been automatically slotted as 3rd goalie. He came from the USHL like lethemon did, right? Maybe Minnie and Lethemon had very little help last weekend but we're not going to win hardly any games if our goalie's can't break .800 save% no matter how good the team infront of them is.

                                Remember some of those games back in '09 when teams like Miami would just absolutely beat the hell out of us and toy with us? I worry that is what this weekend has in store except now we don't have Lerg to stop 50 shots to make the score look somewhat respectable.
