If someone has already started a regular season thread, I can't find it, and I used the search function.

So, as bad as the start has been, here it is. It looks like hoping that Huggins would have a Williams-like bounce-back after a dismal sophomore year is out the window. Nobody can put the puck in the net. Not good.

Yikes. 4 games in, 0 wins, and only a grand total of 4 goals. We'll be unranked after this weekend.

Should I be scared??
Also, 4 non-conference game loses hurts the wcha as a whole.

I think that the Mavs have too much talent in that room to let this go on for too much longer. From reading Chris Dilks, it's just that they're really hitting this incredibly-bad shooting run. These percentages simply aren't sustainable. Even the 2013-14 Chargers potted a goal a game, and that was the worst team in D-I history.

What has Coach Hastings said about the slow start? This really surprised me...

He said:


"Uncharted waters," coach Mike Hastings said.

For the first time in program history, the Mavericks were shut out for the third game in a row, falling to nonconference rival and 12th-ranked St. Cloud State 3-0 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

The loss dropped MSU, which entered the weekend ranked 14th in the country, to 0-4 to start the season, but finding a win has to start with finding a goal, and the Mavericks haven't been able to unearth one since early in the third period of their season opener.

"We've gotta find ways to score goals," Hastings said. "They don't have to be pictures. They just have to be a number, something that breaks the egg."

Are you counting exhibition goals?

Its a painful way to start the season for sure. Too much talent for them to be shut out back to back to back games, the games Ive seen there have been a lot of missed opportunities that in previous years those shots were buried. I think now its at 3 games its obviously in their heads and if they can just break through that then it should be ok. Long season still. Lots of opportunities to improve.

I still have hope, and I know that a 2% shooting percentage isn't going to last forever, but seeing a few goals would do a lot to lift my morale.

tough start but it doesnt diminish what this team can and could accomplish. Ill gladly take a tough start if that means they catch fire later. I look at this time similar to when we lost lehrke two seasons ago, they started off slow but picked up once he came back and they got things figured out. Hopefully they can do something similar this year as well, it just would have been easier to do it against teams that werent top 10 caliber.

At this point I'll take any win but still need to clean up the dumb penalties. New goaltender looked good. Hopefully they can get the sweep.

Hastings preaches it over and over - Your best players have to be your best players. Tonight, with Gervais, Blueger, and McClure scoring, that was true. Good luck tomorrow, and congrats to Pawloski on his 1st NCAA win!

Good to get the 4pts from a tough Bemidji team. Hopefully they are starting too work out the kinks especially with the gophers coming to town soon. Given our nonconference record those are important wins. Hopefully foguth is ok.

Though you guys got off to a tough start, I wouldn't read too much into it. After losing a number of key players off last season's squad, it takes time to adjust to that. We talked about you guys at the Ferris game last evening, and some people felt that as a result of your start, that there might not be a favorite in the WCHA this season. I disagree with those thoughts, and still see you guys as the team to beat. Your team will gel, and that process got started this weekend on the road, against a very tough Bemidji State team.
