If Red knows what he's doing still, Nagelvoort will not play another minute unless it's in garbage time.
Lavigne and LaFontaine are worlds ahead of Nagelvoort.
Start LaFontaine with Lavigne as the backup.

Not entirely sure what is going on with this team.
If not for some very good goaltending, we should have been swept.
Just controlling the puck to move down the ice seems to be a struggle right now.
The problem isn't the speed or size- it's mental. And it's not just the freshmen that look lost- Jr and Sr were making some pretty bad decisions out there- Cutler Martin had a horrible turn over at the blue line that turned into a goal- that should have never happened.
Heading out to New England tonight. Going to the games at Vermont and Dartmouth with some friends.
I hope to see our endurance improving. So far this Michigan team seems to tire early.
West Texas Wolverine, if you see this, was it Vermont you were planning to go to? Are you still going? Hope to see you tomorrow.
It was pathetic. They just aren't a team yet. Half the passes are behind each other. UVM's first goal was a bad turnover in our zone. The second goal went 5 hole on Lavigne, he should have had it.
Hockey East refs call a lot of penalties, but they called both ways and were valid. A couple of Michigan's penalties were just laziness/tired.
Lots of room for improvement. Hopefully tomorrow is better.
Regarding the refs.. it has been like that all year (you think HE refs have a quick whistle watch the ECAC Refs)..
The passing makes we think they are practicing slow. And that they come out slow makes me think that more.
On a vacation note, wT- the colors must be pretty impressive in Vermont and New Hampshire. At least you have that to enjoy.
Yes snow. Leaves were pretty, but it was overcast and rainy/snowy all weekend.
I'm not sure I want to comment on last night's game. We looked decent in the first period. But that was because Dartmouth is not good. We gave up so many opportunities that other teams would have capitalized on.
So if this team keeps going the way they are, this thread is going to end up being a low end Alumni travel thread.
Certainly respect for your decision to refrain your comments on last night's game. However, a win is a win no matter how the other team looks combined with how your team played. Yes, Dartmouth could have capitalized on more opportunities, especially the full 2 minute 5 on 3 but they are young and inexperienced. While they did not cash in, their D held up except for the two PP goals you guys scored. Overall, 5 on 5 IMHO Dartmouth was the better team last night; I'll reiterate last night. Thanks for visiting and safe travels!
