    Now we have to listen to that again.
    Again? You act like you go every year or something...

    We DO win games at the Joe already. Only when playing Michigan State in the semi-finals on Thursday (Super Six format) and the third place game (all flavors of the Championship format).

    The last interview I heard with Comley (I believe it was the last radio show), he seemed to hint that we could lose a number of players for next season.

    I think Petry is the most likely to leave early but i feel like neither him nor Tropp actually will unless either of them are unhappy here. I could always be wrong but i don't think either of them are ready despite what popular opinion may be.
    So i guess i am saying that all seniors will return? I mean, I have no idea what Petry or Tropp may do but it is MY opinion that they would benefit from another year for development.

    I still think our roster will be very good next year. Possibly the best that Comley has had to work with but if Owsla's feelings hold truth then it may set us back.

    Don't underestimate what an offseason can do for development. Just look at the difference between this year and last. We may lose Petry or Tropp or Rowe, but we will have the personnel to improve.

    God i hope we don't lose Rowe.

    Also, of those currently drafted on the team (Petry, Tropp, Leveille, Nill and Grant), who is most likely to leave early?

    IMO Rowe is the guy I'd absolutely hate to see leave early. Most likely to leave would be Petry.
    Petry and Petry.

    Edmonton's in dire need of talent right now. Petry's as good as gone.

    If Comley's got to go, I got the perfect replacement - Craig Dahl!

    Yep. I think CHN had a problem with theirs, that has now been corrected.

    There is a way that we can get the 16th seed in the tournament. On collegehockeynews.com you can finish out the season picking your teams that win and lose. They complete the pairwise rankings after your picks are made and if this happens it says Michigan State is tied for 14th and has the last spot in the tournament.

    You have specified the following tournament results:

    * Hockey East Semifinal #2: Maine defeats Boston University.
    * Hockey East Semifinal #1: Boston College defeats Vermont.
    * Hockey East Championship game: Boston College defeats Maine.
    * ECAC Semifinal #2: Union defeats St. Lawrence.
    * ECAC Semifinal #1: Cornell defeats Brown.
    * ECAC Championship game: Cornell defeats Union.
    * ECAC Consolation game: Brown defeats St. Lawrence.
    * Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #2: Sacred Heart defeats Air Force.
    * Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #1: RIT defeats Canisius.
    * Atlantic Hockey Championship game: RIT defeats Sacred Heart.
    * CCHA Semifinal #2: Ferris State defeats Northern Michigan.
    * CCHA Semifinal #1: Miami defeats Michigan.
    * CCHA Championship game: Miami defeats Ferris State.
    * CCHA Consolation game: Northern Michigan defeats Michigan.
    * WCHA Play-in #1: Minnesota-Duluth defeats North Dakota.
    * WCHA Semifinal #2: Wisconsin defeats St. Cloud State.
    * WCHA Semifinal #1: Denver defeats Minnesota-Duluth.
    * WCHA Championship game: Wisconsin defeats Denver.
    * WCHA Consolation game: St. Cloud State defeats Minnesota-Duluth.
    According to the USCHO PWR predictor, if the above were to happen, we'd be the first team out.

    I would unequivocally say that as a program, MSU hockey is not all of one accord.


    *My definition of "leadership" is not confined to one man, btw.
    That appears to be a fair evaluation based upon what we've seen in the past few weeks. I think the players are still pretty tight, but that's based on what I've seen around.

    I tell you, there was something rather fishy (rotten?) in that lockerroom - seems all that good feeling and that comraderie people talked about at the offset just sort of seeped away.
    Do you think that the players aren't getting along like at the beginning of the season? I'm not a betting man, but I would lay money on the table that this melt-down was not caused by a player v. player problem. Of course, I don't gamble much, so take it for what it's worth.
