CALM THE *K DOWN

Yes, the Sioux team lost last night to a decent UAA team. A UAA team that is shattering expectations and predictions all over the land, including mine. And yes, the Sioux are underperforming. There is no doubt about that. And yes, they only played hockey last night for 3 minutes. And yes, Hak started Walski. And yes, the Sioux did not convert on a 5 minute man advantage. And yes, the Sioux couldn't get a lot of shots. But CALM DOWN! My God, I'm reading the comments on Brad Schlossman's
blog and you would think the Sioux team has shown no promise or won any games yet this season. Let me remind you this is a banged up team. Genoway suited up, but anyone who thinks he is out there playing 100% is a moron. They miss Joe Finley at defense. There is no doubt. But everyone relax. Jesus Christ, relax.

You can still take some positives from last night. Hextall scored again. He's looking better and better every time out there. Eventually he will command respect from opposing defenses and will free up VV and Duncan. Gregoire was getting good chances last night. He's a strong freshman playing well. Miller playing D is doing a fine job. Genoway was back in the lineup. Eidsness, once put in, didn't let a goal by him. Take the positives people! We can still get a split out of the weekend.

Seriously, do not be bandwagon jumpers.

This playing out true to form, from the last 4 1/2 seasons. The part that frustrates me is UND is better than UAA and could have won this game last night.

Some of the comments are kind of classless...

the people comparing this team to the 2001-2002 team are delirious or just stupid

Goon said...

I think that person is a Goofs fan.

Brandon said...

I think he was too...but the Sioux fans are still boggling my mind

You guys should try sucking more often, like Michigan Tech. When you suck constantly, sucking more doesn't feel as bad, and then when you manage to not suck, you can get all excited and happy until you decide to start sucking more ;)

Just leave Walski on the bench and maybe they will start to show some promise. And, you need to calm down...bitch

Don't give Eidsness too much credit. He wasn't challenged very much, and he got beat bad on that breakaway but the shooter just plain missed his spot. Not saying that he's a bad goalie however. Also, in Walski's defense he was screened on the first two goals and had no idea where the puck was due to the mess in front of the net. It's all cause our defense is depleted a little right now. What I'm most pissed off about is how our HOME crowd cheered when they pulled our HOME goalie. There is no place for that! Kids just don't realize that goals against are not completely the goalies fault, you have to look at the support given by the rest of the team, and Friday night there wasn't much.

runthefence, if you try to inject logic into this discussion you're not going to get very far.

RunTheFence said...

Well thats truely unfortunate. Not my loss however.

Brandon said...

actually, logic prevails in this blog quite well. It's the reason I write it; I'm actually a logical fan. Thank you.

Wow, another pithy statement from the college hockey blogger.
