    Overall it just makes no sense to play one night and not the other. Western college hockey is nearly all back to back games all season long. Eastern hockey, where they seem willing to play almost any night of the week, is another story. If Michigan had pulled out of both games, then maybe I buy the "health and safety" angle. But if Michigan's athletes are in grave danger and putting their health at risk, then they shouldn't be playing at all, and that means ALL sports... including the football team going for a National Championship. But we know they won't get the plug pulled on them in the name of "health and safety" because there is too much money to be made on the gridiron. Overall, I am more than ready to shake up the GLI and move on with out Michigan and move on to new locations around the Midwest.

    As I've noted before, there are plenty of other NON-conference teams that Tech can bring into this tourney and move the location annually to get more Tech alumni from other parts of the country involved. I would even be ok calling it the Great Lakes tourney (Huskies Holiday Ice Cup or whatever name you want to create) and putting it in outside the Midwest if they really want to reach Tech alumni around the country. UND plays games all over the country at neutral sites and gets fans to show up. I think Tech could have the same draw for one-time events due to the lack of conference teams outside of the Midwest now. Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, or any city with an ECHL sized rink (Get out of the NHL 15k-20k buildings that we can't fill). Time to reboot the GLI in a big way as a last gasp effort before it dies. The first move is to remove Michigan from the equation.
    I'm not in favor of that.

    We played OT like we always do. As if we were shorthanded and trying to kill a 5-minute major.

    I'm already resigned to it. After opening weekend this team has done nothing but disappoint and underwhelm.

    Well....we've seen that movie before. Outshot an opponent, didn't put the puck in net, played just well enough not to lose, and played like garbage in OT. This is our team.

    Wow. 20 shots on goal that 2nd period. Still couldn't outscore our opponent.

    I also counted six draft picks still in last night's lineup for them, lol. Mel is a weenie and he keeps proving it more and more with every passing year.

    Disappointing that we couldn't come out of Yost with the win, but Blake and the defense played very well.

    They got Gingell back who is a terrific player and made a big difference. And they played very hard. as hard as we did. That's not the case all the time for them.

    Disappointed we couldn't take advantage of their "monumental" disadvantage and actually score a goal.

    Michigan’s depth faced a monumental test with so many missing regulars. Portillo proved he can be their heartbeat in close contests.
