    Only 3 teams have winning records in league play.

    No, I don't think that I got my point across. We've all seen losing teams quit on coaches to get them fired. This is not that kind of team. I'm happy to see it, although reading this tells me that's not a popular position in MQT.

    I can guarantee that there are "fans" out there that don't want this winning streak or a good playoff run. They want a change and they want to bring in someone with a much worse record.

    I'm with dave on this one. Just as an outsider, I can understand the frustration, but I also understand how much a great players' absence can influence your success. It's a tough business. I feel for a lot of these teams who have suffered for so long. Right now a lot of the teams in this league are playing well and picking a favorite to win the playoffs is impossible. I just wish we could have won more non conference games earlier in the year.

    The fire Walt Kyle talk is now officially dead for the season. Nice turnaround for NMU which you obviously have to credit Kyle for.

    I'm having a hard time posting coherent sentences, but is my reading *****ed up too? Walt Kyle fired? Walt Kyle gave a fiery talk to no avail? Wat?

    With 2 weekends to go, predict the two teams who will not make the WCHA playoffs.

    Well considering the team currently in 10th could finish tied for 4th two weeks from now, I'm not ready to make any predictions. We will know very little until two Sundays from now. That being said, UAA and UAH have the odds against them. UAH only has two games left and UAA is four points back of the teams they will have to pass.

    To me it's Anchorage and Huntsville, but it's so close. Still anchorage needs a sweep in one of the next two series and Huntsville needs a sweep in their one remaining. Huntsville has been playing better lately but I think that losing streak in mid season really hurt them.

    Someone needs to draft a short succinct paragraph about how their team really needs to step up and get points this next weekend, play with intensity, and limit stupid penalties and defensive turnovers. Discuss how they need better execution on their special teams play, need to quit leaving their goaltender out to dry, or how their goaltender needs to be more consistent. Comments about their team’s lack of effort, intensity, and heart would be optional. Do not mention your teams name too often, because the rest of us can then cut, paste and replace our own team’s name with little effort on our part. Thanks in advance.

    Don't forget to add in the rant about the amount of obstruction that has returned since the "crackdown" ended, and I think you pretty much have it covered.

    Weekend Preview - [Michigan Tech Huskies] vs [Bye]

    Obviously this is a huge weekend for the [Michigan Tech Huskies]. They really need to step up and prevent the other teams in the conference from getting points. First and foremost they need to practice with intensity. They should be able limit stupid penalties as the coaches are going without refs at practice this week. The ref's were not adding much value anyway as they've stopped calling obstruction since the crack-down ended back in week four. Defensive turnovers are also going to be key. I hear the coaching staff likes the guys to bring in apple and cherry during off weeks.
    Special teams play should be much improved as the #1 PP unit will be going against a rag-tag PK unit of leftovers as the star players can't fill two roles as once. I heard the equipment staff does plan on leaving the goaltender gear out to dry after practice and the dry gear each day should make the goaltender more consistent. In short, the team needs to increase their effort, intensity, show some heart and hope everyone else forfeits their games if they hope to gain ground in the standings this weekend. Go [Huskies]!
