    LSSU Lakers 2019 off-season thread

    The best Laker season in 23 years is now over. Hoping we can have success next season. Hoping Saccoman doesn't depart early.

    I know next season non-conference Lakers host Denver and Merrimack and play at Michigan. Any other NC opponents?

    I just hope this isn't another 2006-07 season when the Lakers won 21 games that year, went to the CCHA semi-finals but majorly regressed in 2007-08.

    The Lakers probably overachieved that season, largely due to the play of Jeff Jakaitis in net. I think this season's team had better overall balance across the forwards, defense and goaltending. Hopefully there won't be much if any drop-off next season. A lot will depend upon how much some of the freshmen and sophomore forwards step up their offensive contributions next season, along with how much offense we'll get from next season's freshmen. It will also help if Saccoman comes back at D for his Senior season. And obviously we're hoping for even bigger and better things next season.

    Saw that score by periods stat during last week's series. Very impressive that the Lakers scoring increased each period. Speaks well of player conditioning, coaching adjustments, and team depth. Good luck next year! It was fun to watch your team's skating and attacking style.

    Thank you, seniors, for getting the program back on track. I'm excited for the Ashton Calder era. A local kid returning the team to glory would be a good story.

    Yeah, I think he'll get some serious consideration for that.

    Hastings and Bergeron had better records, and Potulny had a better conference record, but none of them did more with what they had in the room and exceeded expectations as much as Whitten did. He would get my vote if I had one.

    I would be very surprised and a bit ticked if he didn't get it.

    Player of the Year - Cuglietta or Michaelis?

    As an outside observer and someone that doesn't see LSSU play often, I really think Whitten is building something really good. He was willing to go through a couple of really tough years to transition the program to a fast skating, uptempo team. I think he really has gotten close and, given a good recruit or two to keep pushing it in that direction, we will be seeing you guys near the top of the conference. The future is bright for the Lakers in my mind.

    If you look at the top teams in the conference, they all have the ability to play that style. Those in the bottom half play a much more defensive style. My personal belief is that those that are willing to push the tempo and play that style are the teams that will be successful year after year.
    Mess with the bull, you get the horns.

    I agree. LSSU is pretty much dead last when it comes to funding in the WCHA so Whitten deserves major kudos for the Lakers having a top 4 finish.

    Enrico Blasi has been fired by Miami.

    Diego Cuglietta has signed with the Texas Stars (AHL affiliate of the Dallas Stars).

    I was really excited to see Cuglietta signed with Texas. Then I realized he was a senior and would be gone anyway.

    All kidding aside, I wish him well. Helluva player from what I've seen him play against Tech.

    Whitten got robbed. Oh well, I'm sure Damon would rather Make Laker Hockey Great Again.

    I agree. Total B.S! Damon got screwed yesterday and today it's Diego.

    Loggins from NMU got screwed as well.
