    Re: Michigan Tech 2017-18 The Joe Shawhan Era Continues - Getting Better Everyday

    I admit I liked seeing Watson scrapping a little. We need a little bit of growl in this team. No need for Smith to go chasing McLain, but then again, what a classless jackhole McLain is to pull his crap then skate away when someone calls him out. They wouldn't show the fighting on wcha tv but it sounded like Watson and spezia got at it pretty good.

    Tech's behavior at the end of the game was classless. Obviously, with your language, you are classless as well.
    I would tend to trust MS's version. He usually has an accurate assessment, for and against his Huskies...Unlike BG announcers and fans that seem to feel their boys have never ever done anything wrong. I'm still looking in the rule book to find where a trip isn't a trip because it was 'inadvertent.' Or goalie interference isn't interference if the player just happened to run into the goalie by accident... Nope, can't find that section anywhere..

    I don't believe anyone will miss time. Only roughing and 10 minute misconducts handed out. No fighting, game misconduct, etc.

They've made great strides, they've played some really good hockey. Build them up, build their confidence, be supportive. You'd be surprised what a difference it would make.
    There are many successful coaching styles. Some use a carrot, some a stick. Herb Brooks was one of the best coaches of college level players ever. Yet he beat his players like rented mules. If they didn't play well, even when they won, he made them skate lengths of the rink after the game. He was a demanding tyrant and his players despised him. But he forced them to play their best and they won gold against all odds. I'm old school, I think players should fear their coach, Tom Landry style.

    IMHO, part of the problem is most of the players are Mel's. Until most of the players are Joe's, I think this team will struggle...

    Reinke - Out (our Hobey Baker guy)
    Ford - Out
    Donohue - Out
    Baltus (C) - Out
    Gillies - Out
    Jackson - playing at not 100%


    This is eye opening. Too many players out.

    The last time I looked this site is USCHO not only a Tech site. Yes, McClain can get under your skin. EVERY team has those
    type of players including Tech. As far as last night's game, Tech ran McClain the shift before. The game was on local tv and I rechecked the game. Smith was just looking for a fight. I am not trying to pick a fight with your fan base, but Tech is not a bunch of angels. Let's hope cooler heads prevail tonight for BOTH teams so no one gets hurt.

    Beydoun played great in the first. Hope he doesnít have to make those kind of saves the rest of the game.

    Dane Birks; all you can say is WOW.

    McClain is a goon. Should have been tossed already. Need to keep our heads in the game.

    Why do we dump the puck in on the power play? Not sure if I dislike the PK or PP more. 5 on 5 is where we need to be.

    Beydoun really playing with some fire tonight. As much as I was a Debbie -Downer yesterday, I like what Iíve seen thus far.

    Like you noted earlier, 5 starters out including the captain and a Hobey Baker candidate. Tech is playing a good, hungry team in their barn with young players, one of whom is playing his 1st games, and is winning 4-0. Aside from finding some consistent goaltending, I have no complaints. Ever since I saw them at the Ice Breaker I have thought that they are hard working and resilient.
    I like this young team.
    I like Joe Shawhan and think that heís going to have a good run at Tech.

    OK, we're thinking it so I will ask it.

    Is Robbie Beydoun the horse we ride through the finish line?

    I would ride whoever has not lost last. Right now, Robbie deserves the next start.

    I still like Keroís last appearances....

    I will admit, with the 5 on 3 at the end of the game. 4 goal lead. Further penalties are meaningless.... I figured the game was about to get ugly. It finished better than I thought it would.

    So are you saying switch it up again as soon as Robbie loses? Tough to get needed confidence if you're worried that you will lose your posotion if you lose - even if you play well.

    Joe said he played tonight like the guy he recruited. I think he needs to give a little longer leash to whomever he starts and let that guy prove himself over more than just 3-4 games.

    I like Kero but I'm fine with Robbie playing out the rest of the schedule. He has the most time left with t he team and by many accounts the most potential.
