What do posters think will be the outcome of the 2015-16 hockey season? After being swept by Cornell, having losses to Q-Paq and Yale, can this team make a run in the second half? Can we secure a home playoff spot in the league standings- #5 - #8? Can we make it to LP again, and possibly have a championship season and go to the NCAAs? We've lost two key players to the pros and have a short bench; things are not looking good right now. Can we turn it around? Comments?

It's difficult to be optimistic. We're currently tied for 10th in the league. Our offense is eleventh in goals per game. Defensively, we are not good. Eleventh in goals against per game (we give up 3 goals/game and score 1.5 goals a game). The PPK is tenth and the team save percentage is ninth. Then again, remember 2011 when we were last in the regular season and made it to the semis.

Folks who are closer to the team than I am (been preoccupied with football up until now!) tell me the team is paper thin and has had injuries that they just don't have the depth to recover from.  Hopefully the break helps that... and Finn starts stopping some pucks.  I've also heard he's given up a number of very soft goals, which is uncharacteristic.

I assume once Zappa figures out the new board he'll have an opinion!

Games with Brown on Tuesday (12/29) and Vermont on Wednesday at Burlington in the Catamount Classic. This is one of maybe 8 meetings with Brown this season. We need retribution for our loss in Ireland.

Horrific 7-5 loss today vs. Bruno. Don't know what we have to do to get a W. Really painting ourselves in a corner.

Terrible loss.  I cannot take another year of Finn.  I just can't.  He needs to be the QB of our team and he has proven to be, um, ineffective.  Five goals should win a game.  True to form, 'Gate gives up 2 late goals at the end of the 1st and 3rd to lose in sad fashion.  Lappin scores 4?  There is absolutely NO excuse not to defend him.  You'd think he was a rookie we've never heard of before...a sad commentary considering this is our 3rd game against the Bears this season.

The holiday break yielded no improvements, and even Dauda's tally won't change that in the long run.  Nothing wrong with having a rebuilding year, but it's a disappointing contrast from last season.  Four years of playoffs in Atlantic City & Lake Placid are great accomplishments, but no hardware to show for it is unfortunate.

And now we're at the bottom of the barrel all over again Sad  Hope the guys can still enjoy themselves and get a few in the W column.

4-1 L tonight. Is the team toast this year? It sure looks like it. Something's not right, but who knows what's going on? Just a terrible showing in VT.....and Ireland.

Since when has a goalie ever been the "quarterback" of a hockey team? Finn isn't the main problem here; the defense is. Watching the puck too much instead of marking their man in the D zone. Combine that with being outshot by almost 100 shots so far this season and we're going to be in trouble.

Apparently, good seasons didn't produce good recruits.  Why not?

The team is only as good as its goalie.  Agree the defense is anemic, but the last goal he let in v. Brown with :47 in the game is the epitome of his performance this season.  Give Racine a chance to reignite the D.  Like the team has anything left to lose?  We just lost to 3-8-3 Brown and 7-12-2 Vermont.  I'm sure 4-11-4 Maine will give us fits.  It's due or die before league play resumes.  Changing strategies, players or positions is smart, not desperate.
