    Re: Official 2009-2010 Miami season thread part II: Unfinished Business

    I don't think it's wise to overlook a team coached by Dean Blais. He has his guys playing very good hockey right now. There was a great article about him on USCHO earlier this week.

If you want to play that card, Miami has beaten Western and Bowling green recently so how impressive is what they have done lately?? Just playing devils advocate because obviously what Miami has done the last month and a half is impressive no matter who they have played and so is what UNO has done. To do any thing consistantly at this level of hockey is impressive. They are a well coached team with great team speed, you need to look deeper than the surface sometimes to see how good they are. All you need is a little confidence to get you going, if that is beating teams that aren't the cream of the crop so be it. They are playing with great confidence and have some good talent, that is always dangerous. A loss this weekend won't make or break Miami's season, but it is good that UNO is playing well and has a lot to play for. It gives Miami a tremendous challenge this weekend that they need to face in preparation for the NCAA tournament.
      Actually Michigan did not beat Boston, just for a small correction. And I'm not saying it won't be a challenging game, but i think people are overestimating UNO. And no disrespect back to you, but apparently I'm not the only one that thinks that. A lot of Miami hockey fans that are students here think the same way as well as the nice person that posted below me.

Any "hott" CCHA team becomes far less impressive when you actually look at who they are beating, but we have had enough close games with "inferior" opponents this season to know that there will probably be a 3-2 game (going either way) one night this weekend.

        Sitting in line at the Goggin, only 3 and half hours to go!
        Again don't agree with that. CCHA or not a team playing well is dangerous. Miami wasn't deemed to be a steallar team last year and look what happened, they got hot and were within a min. away from winning a title. Doesn't matter what conference you are in, these guys are good players and have a great coach. They are playing well and are dangerous. Im sorry guys but you are wrong in thinking otherwise. Those who have played at a high level get it, there is enough talent in this conference to make you earn your victories. If you are going to make that arguement you are then calling Miami a mediocre team who has beaten some nice OOC teams and that isn't the case either. Can't call Miami great for going on this run and not another team in the league.

          Thats the point though, they are students and most of them haven't played at a high level. Students, for the most part, have one track minds and don't think logically. Not to mention half of the students who think that couldn't name UNO's coach. I was fortunate to have played at a high level and will tell you it doesn't make a difference. I don't mean this in a bad way but it is an ignorant way of thinking. Read my post above for more of my arguement.

          Thank you for the correction though, I was thinking of Notre Dame who beat Boston in Boston. But OSU beat Denver so they have the talent, just underachieving. There is a lot of talent in this conference but a lot of teams who just haven't put together good seasons for whatever reason. You have to look deeper into things than just the surface.

          Good debate though.

            Re: Official 2009-2010 Miami season thread part II: Unfinished Business

            sloppy sloppy game tonight. Miami got some fortunate bounces and they frustrated UNO. Always good to get a win when you don't play your best.

            Boy Greg Wadel is hard to listen to sometimes. Love his enthusiasm but geez. Little advice if he reads this, if your going to cover college hockey atleast read the rule book so you can know what is going on instead of stumbling over words and reporting 4 different penalties on the same call.....

            Also once again McKenzie walks that thin line once again, I tell you what he is going to really cost this team in a big spot one day and I just hope that it isn't in an extremely important game. The UNO player was ridiculous for what he did from the bench and then trying to jump over after him, but McKenzie had no business being over by there bench at that point. I love the way he plays and he is the type of guy that you want on your team but someone has to pull the reins back a little bit on him.

            I am starting to see a pattern with this team. That would be they are clogging things up and shutting teams down so well it is absolutely sending teams over the deep end. Typical in hockey when you can't succeed you get frustrated and lash out. That seems to be what is going on when you look back at the last few weeks. Miami is just beating up on teams and they finally can't take anymore and start the rough stuff.

            All in all a win is a win no matter how you get it. Cody wasn't tested but I bet he wants that first goal back, looked a little shaky at times but made more saves than the other guy and thats all that matters. Another 3 pt night for Palmer and he is now the team leader in points, way to show senior leadership!!

              Another win for Miami, but it took a period for the team to get settled in. I thought the key play of the game was being able to control the puck for almost 30 seconds on that delayed penalty and drawing a second penalty. A 5 x 3 conversion, and the team was able to cruise from there.

              Those watching on TV, what set off the mess with McKenzie? Everyone was waiting for a faceoff in the Miami end and I missed it. I assume just some talk from the UNO bench set him off? If so, that obviously is not good. Rico was furious after it happened.

                They didn't catch it on the TV broadcast, either. Seemed like McKenzie may have been running his mouth in front of their bench (not hard to believe) to the point that he sparked something.

                In other news: Denver and Michigan Tech are tied at 1 after the first period.
                Love and honor to Miami forever and a day. Go RedHawks!

                  Thats exactly what happend. McKenzie stopped in front of their bench and said something instigating it. Hence my rant above, won't repeat it.

                  NMU beats Michigan and now is in 4th with a 5 pt lead over michigan...told you michigan wouldn't get in the top 4...Also Ferris with a nice win over sparty to take over sole possesion of 2nd place.

                    Hey I am part of far to may pessimistic fan bases (ND Football, NYJ). Until this team gives me a reason not to I am just going to enjoy hoping for and expecting them to win the games they are supposed to win. Borg mentality ftw I guess.

                      First off...sorry I have an opinion, but obviously tonight proved that I was in the right to say what i did that UNO is overrated. Last time I checked ND is getting beat by Bowling Green and NMU is owning Michigan, it just proves that both ND and Michigan are completely falling apart this season.

                      Now do you think we're all in the wrong or saying that UNO was an overrated team? After we got in the swing of things (after the first period) it was all Miami. The talent of UNO is incomparable to Miami.

                      Lastly, in what shape or form am i saying that Miami is mediocre by saying that UNO is an overrated team?

                        Actually for once I don't think McKenzie was running his mouth. I was sitting right on the glass next to UNO's bench and I was watching Wingels and the UNO guy, don't remember name, talking junk and then they started pushing each other. Yes, probably unnecessary for McKenzie to even go over but when its Wingels right up on UNO's bench he could use some support, its not like he came in swinging away or anything.

                          Random thought but how about that blocked shot by Vaive, great effort, he's really been hitting his stride these last few games. Any one watching on air know where he took that puck? Noticed he was not on the bench for most of the third, hoping its nothing serious.

                            Just because we are students and confident in our team in winning games we are suppose to win is that a bad thing? The students that actually take the time to post on here are actually very knowledgeable and I guarantee you can name UNO's coach. It's not that we have one track minds we just expect to win for the most part.

                              I think it hit him in the shoulder area but I'm not positive. It is weird he came back on the ice in the second and went on to score but then didn't play in the third. Hopefully just a bruise and nothing serious. That effort though was phenomenal.
