I like this team and I really like these coaches!
MTU: Three time NCAA champions.
It never get's easier, you just go faster. -Greg Lemond
It is my feeling that if this juggling act continues MTU's chances of making a meaningful playoff run are zero.
I do like this team and I do like the coaching staff! Wish I could find a way to like the goaltending!
Tyler Heinonen at AHL's San Jose Baracuda.
"Heinonen has become a player that is trusted to slot anywhere into the line up and elevate the play of the line he is on. His speed and hockey IQ combine for a scoring touch that allows him to handle big minutes" How many times did you hear this out of the MTU coaching staff?

My gut says we might see Kero in goal tonight. I think BGSU plays a game better suited to Kero's style.
Let's go Tech!
Been away from a bit, more important things going on in my life right now than even Tech hockey. Skimmed the thread and see a lot of people thinking the same as me on many points, the main one being pick your horse at goalie and ride it to the finish line. I may disagree on who that should be, personally I would like to see Beydoun for the reasons mentioned, he has 3 years ahead of him and is the goalie of the future so get him more experience, but I also think his flashes of brilliance have been brighter than either Kero or Packy, I think he looks like the most talented in the group, however he does show to be the most inexperienced and make some dumb, Redmond-esque type mistakes too. I do think all 3 have talent and the ability to be a good goalie, but I think the rotating has hurt all of their confidence as well as the teams.
I do feel this team has a lot of fight, Friday night being down 3-1 and fighting back, we have fought back to ties and even wins more times this season than in any I can remember, they have a lot of fight and grit, but the goaltending has let them down too much. There's also the few players who have just under performed, L'Esperance and Lucchini being the two I think of most. Both should be 30+ point players but neither looks like they'll hit that number. L'Esperance can't buy a goal this year which has hurt us.
Again, this team has more fight and grit than any Tech team I can remember other than maybe the 06-07 squad with Batovanja. We've just made 1 or 2 deadly mistakes in too many games with shaky goaltending and not gotten the puck luck we needed. With a solid goalie I think we would be a solid #2 team in the league, but we are where we are and need to fight to keep going.
