OK so letís talk about the next time Thiessen gets a shot in goal. Swayman is the backbone of this team but heíll be a better backbone if he gets a break once every dozen games or so. The next reasonable choice I see is 12/29 vs AIC. Or possibly one of the games vs St. Lawrence? Iím not sure. The kid needs to get a game in some time. But Sway gives them a better chance of winning every game he plays. The other choice of course is if Maine is up by several goals and he comes in for the 3rd or something.
Look, I know he was awful the one game he got a shot. I would not have chosen that game to put my #2 goalie in to get some work. But it begs the question if now what?
[QUOTE=DoubleA;6867339] Swayman is the backbone of this team
Swayman IS this team, in terms of the W/L record.
The forwards are composed of the typical Red ham-handed recruits.
It'll be interesting to see how it works out in the end, but I expect the same-old, come Spring.
if NU doesn't make too much noise in HE this season (odds are against us this time), I will be cheering you guys all the way. Great fans & resilient team after slow start.
I doubt you're going to see the 5K per night type crowds @ Matthews this wknd, (we sometimes get close to 4200-4300 but is rare depending the wknd/ opponent)... regardless; hopefully we'll see 2 good games.
On the fans/ home crowds, well done! With declining coll hockey attendance many places, great to hear the "Old Girl" averaged 4.5 - 5K fans per night each night this past wknd.
Well done! :)
I also think once in a while, we all sling mud at Red, but never the assistants. This is aweful to say but just thinking what if changes were made there. Not saying I'm a Red fan but....
