    Wisconsin Hockey: Episode XXXI: A New Hope

    *... and cue music*





    With Luke and Opilka-wan

    stranded far far away aboard

    NTDP, the rag-tag remnants of

    the Badger Alliance struggle for

    survival against the Evil Empire.




    Carry on.

    Re: Wisconsin Hockey: Episode XXXI: A New Hope

    Does anyone have positives to take from this past weekend? I didn't get to listen to either game.

    0-6....At this point going .500 (which was my hope for the season) seems out of reach
    Everything in its right place, Wisconsin Hockey National Champs!


    "but you're not as confused as him are you. it's not your job to be as confused as Nigel". Tap pt 1.

    "I think it's ****ing stock. What--? Which part of that is unclear to you? I think it sounds stock to my ears. I mean, do you want me to write it down?" Tap Pt. 2

    Who???! So What!!!! Big Deal!!!!

    At least we scored? And got swept by a really good team?

    Lowered Expectations aside, "hope " is a fairly disingenuous concept here.

    Positives is they played pretty well on Saturday in an end to end game (especially the 2nd period), before the wheels came off the wagon in the 3rd period. It was a relatively entertaining game.

    Jack Dougherty looked good. Kevin Schulze is one of the best skaters I have seen at UW in a long time. Ustaski moves pretty well for a big man. Besse played real well Saturday, throwing his body around. Other Freshman were a mixed bag of looking good and looking lost at times.

    Wittchow sounds like a broken finger, so that is going to hurt the D. They can't run Schulze as much as they did this weekend, all year, or he is going to wear down.

    Still 0-6 is pretty rotten. Worst start since 1932....

    Yeah, slight miscalculation there. I just wish Hak would get over his handshake line issues:

    Dougherty looked lost both nights. Had quite a few turnovers. People around me said this is well.

    Schulze probably played 80 or so minutes this weekend. That can't keep up.

    I know, right! Why is Eaves not playing Schulze both ways, instead of wasting him on the bench 20 minutes a game!

    Rumpel has pretty bad numbers so far (.883 save %), so if he gets back to where he was in previous years that would give you guys some hope. Has he just been struggling or is it the young D in front of him?

    I am no expert and I can be a negative nancy as many of you know. But I thought he looked pretty good overall. Sure, he had some turnovers, but overall I liked his play. At least he carried the puck into the offensive zone a few times. You can see the skill and size are there. Heck even Schulze had some turnovers, but his speed allows him to cover some of those up.

    Doesn't really matter though, as they lost anyways. Might as well get them playing time so they can get experience as we endure this terrible start.

    I have to admit I'm struggling with this team...the positives are there and no doubt as Ian Perrin said it; "if they didn't have bad luck they wouldn't have any luck at all" referencing the pipes and barrage they put on the NoDak goalie with no luck. The crossbar shot that dropped straight down but didn't go in...good teams get that puck luck.

    I knew, you all knew, this was going to be a tough season with all the freshman but I didn't count on Rumple being average so far. It "seems" like the team as a whole is growing and progressing and able to go toe-to-toe with a great team but they need to find that extra something so they don't collapse when something bad happens in the 3rd period. I know some of it is youth, but the older players leadership and coaching needs to own that and step up.
    Go Badgers!

    He has played pretty well this year. Hard to withstand 40 shots a night. Defense has been poor.

    He still gives up too many "my head isn't in the game" goals like the one from the goal line on Saturday. He made great saves along the way and he is certainly seeing a barrage, but those other ones are hurting his save percentage.

    From my vantage point nobody could have stopped that shot. Was an absolute snipe. Would like to see a replay on it though.

    For nearly all freshmen, there are hard lessons to be learned that this level. For D men, it's doubly tough. Badgers will come back. They were right with UND for extended periods both nights.

    Genuinely not trying to nitpick here, but in the games he's played he has only seen on average 29 shots per game (25, 28, 16, 43, and 33, respectively). At least according to USCHO.

    Just wondering, from people who have actually been able to see the games, if it was him, the 3 Frosh on D, or both, that are struggling (since he was pretty much the lone bright point coming into this season).

    I was at both NoDak games. If we didn't have Rumpel, NoDak could have easily scored 8 or so goals.
