    In reality do we want any of the guys back who can do a 5th year? If they didn't produce last year Watts will another year show? Turning over the roster a bit is important.

    Disappointing IMO, as it delays the inevitable rebuild by one year.
    I think they need more time to do the deep dive analysis. Ahcan is not coming back, that is addition by subtraction.

    Yeah he's not ready. If he feels that UW is going to suck next year, maybe that will increase the bail out likelihood.

    I'd love to hear the truth of why they left from the guys who could have done 5th years this last year and didn't.

    I encourage anyone interested to email Jason King, the Senior Associate AD in charge of men's hockey at JWK@athletics.wisc.edu with your thoughts on the state of the UW Men's Hockey program. Be respectful and add facts, but I think this is something any fan can do to affect change.

    Now we wait for Ceulmanns and McIntosh to make decisions. He canned the soccer coach who didn't do nearly as bad as TG did.

    One thing that constantly bugs the crap out of me: the need to flip the puck up in the air to the other team and then go for a line change. Then the next group spends the next 30-45 seconds chasing after the puck/defending just to get the puck and flip it up to the other team and go for a change. Have your d hold it while the forwards go for a change. Then have the d change when the rush starts or rotate the forwards to hold the puck while the d change. You see this all the time in the pros.

    Then again this team doesn't know how to pass so maybe dump n' chase is the best they can do...
    hate to tell you, its everywhere these days

    So after I heard the Badgers somehow won last night I decided to pay the $10 to get the BTN+ team subscription for the month (after the first month or so of the season I decided i wasn't going to spend any money on this team - why pay money to make myself sad/frustrated/angry). I just finished watching yesterday's game and I'd say the Badgers were just okay. My expectations for this team are pretty low at this point. They were not the better team, although I thought they played ND pretty even the first period (despite ND getting 20 SOGs) and second period; the third period ND was taking it to em pretty good and Moe was playing out-of-his-mind and kept the Badgers from losing.

    I thought the Badgers played with a decent amount of effort early on. Their d-zone coverage was okay. It continues to amaze me how out-of-the-blue the Badger d-zone coverage will break down and the other team will have a ton of time/space (i.e. no Badger player within 10 feet of them) in the zone. Brock looked like his younger brother on his goal - poor angle, hit the far post and bounced in. Brock also went hard to the net with the puck on his stick a couple of times - I didn't see that much from the forwards this year. Good to see Dominic and Tyler combine on a goal and the Eau Claire lads combining on another.

    If the Badgers play like they did yesterday tonight I can't imagine they'll win again. It's too much to ask Moe to have another 50 save night. I understand the rationale to hope the Badgers lose to assure/expedite TG's departure, but I can't bring myself to root against them.

    Random thought - TG occasionally mentions having a young team as one of the excuses/reasons for being a terrible hockey team this year. I guess it's technically true they have a top 10 youngest team based on age, but I don't see this as a young team experience wise. Tyler and Josh E are in their 5th seasons and setting records for most games played as a Badger and they have 6 senior/super seniors at forward and all of these seniors are regular contributors. A quick glance at some of the other BTN hockey rosters shows that the Badger have 5 freshman who are regular starters (2 d and 3 f), Gophers have 5, MI 5, Penn 5, OSU 4, and ND 3. Based on MN/MI/OSU records it seems possible to win more than 9 regular season games with 4 or 5 freshman in the line-up.
