    Seems the Lakers may need to win 75% of their remaining league games to make the play-offs . First half they lost 75% of their league games .

    Much better outing tonight (and for the series overall). Great for McKay to earn his first.
    Could have won it, but that's the way she goes.
    We need to stop taking those major penalties.
    Ruggiero sounded okay, though it sounded as though a miscue by him led directly to a goal. Hopefully it was just cobwebs.
    Go Lakers!

    I agree. Hopefully Erikkson's injury isn't too serious. We were pretty shorthanded at D for a number of games due to injuries; now we're getting that way at forward.

    I tend to agree with this statement.

    To me, it seems like a lot of the struggles this season stems from certain players just not getting it done. Certainly that's not the only issue, but when a guy you stick into the lineup due to injury or to shake things up decides they don't want to come out and play, what can you really do? Sure, you could only field 5 D-men, but then someone is double shifting, and you're punishing those players who want to play. Same goes for running 3 and a half lines (this weekend excluded).

    I think the second half of the season will really tell what the offseason will be like. Hopefully with Ruggerio being in the lineup, that'll push some of the...weaker players to sit upstairs, like McArdle or Anderson. Those two, to me, feel like the weakest parts of the blueline.

    When Miura gets back into skating shape, likely after the holidays, I hope Damon & Co. will be able to make at least 2 really good lines. I only listened to part of the game Friday, but it sounded like the Cugglieta was looking good & getting shots to the net, albeit with no results. Miura was arguably the fastest player I saw on the ice when they had their inter-squad game back at the start of the season.

    But with it being the break, and a week and a half out from the Pittsburgh tournament, I would be looking for press releases. My gut is telling me that we're going to be losing some players during the break. Some of these problem children just make it seem like they don't want to be up here. I have nothing to substantiate this, but I think I'd be more surprised if there wasn't some shake up.

    Huntsville is finally turning the corner in Corbett's fifth year. Trust me, a number of our fans were ready to see him go by the end of the third, which was unwarranted. LSSU was never as low under Roque as UAH was under the threat of dissolution, but it's a ways away up from the bottom.

    I think Whitton deserves more time . I just want the coaching staff to take a good hard look at themselves and find out who is struggling and why and teach ,not coach those players, but teach them how to fix their mistakes .

    We're really thin at forward now from a numbers standpoint and we have 3 guys with injuries (Gelsinger, Miura, Erikkson), so I'm not so sure that we'll lose players at the break. Could happen I guess but it won't surprise me if it doesn't. Losing anyone at forward would likely mean bringing in someone as replacement(s) right away. That can be a difficult adjustment for a new player mid-season, especially for someone from juniors rather than a transfer like Ruggerio. Even if we do add anyone, it wouldn't necessarily mean we'd lose someone else.

    I can just see a few players transferring to D3, or if any of them are still eligible for Juniors, there. It's not something I want to see in the least, but I just can't shake the feeling. And I'd rather see a guy herefor 4 full years rather than 3.5, let alone the whole issue of starting classes halfway through the year & whatnot.

    If true then it's even worse than I have been told.

    I've contacted a few people that may be in the know about this, and it doesn't sound like it was voluntary, but certainly not as dramatic as Buff is making it sound. I was picturing him throwing punches or something, ha.

    Just trying to be discreet and not put the details of his personal business out there. Sorry if you misunderstood.

    No, it's fine, I just read into that statement a little too much.

    So it's been a while and I've been out of touch with Laker Hockey. How are things going up there under 4th year head coach Damon Whitten?

    Damon said on the hockey show this week that there were some locker room issues to take care of, so presumably this was it.
