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.
