I could not agree more that the Falcons need to get deeper into the post-season. It has been now well over a decade since the team has made it to AHA tournament.
Another big problem as I see it is the lack of enthusiasm on campus for ice hockey, as indicated by generally lousy attendance at the new arena. The Top Shelf students from the old JAR are long gone and apparently have not been replaced. I think that a strategic blunder is charging students $5.00 to attend games, which is likely a deterrent on general principle rather than dollar amount.
