Granato and his buddies look like they're running a country club not a hockey team.
How in God's name does a coaching staff with 6 draft picks on defense have these guys playing this bad?

I listened to Oz on the post game and I think he's pretty much right. (Also he's pretty ****ed at Baker for taking a penalty after the horn down a goal in a game that your team was dominating to that point.) Oz can't make the break out passes for the guys, Strobie can't win the puck battles and Granato can't put it in the net. They can show them how, but at some point the guys on the ice have to do the job. They are clearly capable because they play really well for long stretches. But when adversity pops up they repeatedly freeze up, lose their mojo, and go into a nosedive. You can coach maturity until your blue in the face but maturity doesn't come from coaching, it comes from experience and understanding and at some point these guys will get it. When that is, is anybody's guess. Could be tonight. Could be next week. Could be next year.
Wisko I want to believe but we are in year four with this staff, with 12 draft picks, and they don't seem to improve, and keep making the same mistakes over and over and over.
I'm just so sick of mediocre hockey and that's what we have this year again with all these high end freshman.
We were very lucky to get the win last night and now a loss tonight.
I would think the coaching seats are going to warm up quick if this continues this year.....
You know what’s Interesting about the country club comment is Jeff Sauer was accused of running a loose ship/country club mentality.
Who did all 3 of these coaches play for?
...The dream staff with the dream recruits are 5-5 and the kids by and large aren't Improving year over year,...
I knew I heard the name Abate before. Former Wisconsin recruit. Had committed to play for Eaves. He scored the game winning goal...

The most discussed topic going into this year was the incoming elite talent and if the staff can coach 'em up OR be able to handle them. What seems to be lost is what will they do to improve the returning players and the team in general. Im sure 99% of the fans are disappointed to date.
The same problems remain; power play, face offs, defense, DISCIPLINE.
Where do we see team improvement over last year?
Of the returning players, who has progressed or regressed?
I'm beginning to put my socks back on.
-S. Dhooghe has 1g 0a in his last 6 games
-Pelton-Byce has 1g 0a in his last 6 games
-Holloway has 0g 1a in his last 5 games
-Baker has 0g 2a in his last 7 games
-Lindmark has 1g 2a in his last 7 games
-Weissbach has 0g 3a in his last 6 games
-Ahcan has 3g 3a in his last 5 games
-Turcotte has 3g 1a in his last 4 games (has a point in every game he has played in except the series at PSU)
-Caufield has 2g 3a in his last 7 games (3 game goal scoring drought for "Goal")
Ladies and gentlemen, our top 9. Three guys doing great to decent offensively and six passengers. Looking them all over, Weissbach and Holloway are the biggest disappointments for me based on my expectations of them and their role.
Guys who are improved over last year-
Inamoto - Weissbach - Gorniak - Messner - Achan - Peltonen - Lebedeff
Guys who are good and just play the same every shift so it's hard to say they're better, but likely they are-
Emberson - Ess
Guys who are not better, are worse, or are struggling to meet expectations-
Kalynuk - Miller - Baker - Dhooghe
Mixed bag/ limited ice time / hard to say:
Mersch -J Dhooghe - Zimmer - B Caufield - Jackie Bear
I thought Dhooghe was better the last 3-4 games, but man, he's had 8-10 wide open nets he's fanned on the last 2 weeks. Have to have those goals. Miller has no nastiness at all to his game, which he did have before getting injured toward the end of last year. He's just not the same to me. Wyatt is a talented player, but he's not making the guys around him better, he's making them work harder. Bakes -- I don't know, he seems a little lost. I think maybe he's been trying to do too much on and off the ice. Just get back to a simple game and lead by example with hard work.
It was good to see quite a few Badger fans last night. Glad they had good weather to drive home in. I thought your team looked pretty good.

Well I dont know if the coach "makes" them... but they do it. And if you've watched the Badgers over the last few years then you know this team doesn't do it. They just dont. And I'm about sick of watching this underachieving crap.
Yes the coaches can't play for the players, but they recruit them, they hand pick the guys they want and train them to play how they want them to play. Teams take on the personalities of their coaches. TG is a emotional, fiery guy. How many head coaches have that as their main characteristic?
I just think all the hype dis-serves the players by putting too much pressure on them. It does not help one bit.
Lately I've had this crazy thought...…..I miss Mike Eaves...…..I said it was crazy.
