    We Cannot Have Nice Things: Michigan Tech 2010-2011 Season Thread: Part Tre

    Maybe the third season thread will turn it around?

    For tonight: (from Shirtless)
    Out: Baker, Pietila
    Doubtful: Gordic, Lickteig
    Questionable: Royer
    Probable: Olson

    My only correction to that is Royer, he is out, at least a couple more weeks from my source anyways, about 2-3 weeks each for Pietila and Royer

    I see your thread and raise you one more? (how many season threads could we make before we get banned?)

    Well the Mining Gazette article states that Royer has been practicing...thats why I bumped him up. There are probably 4 or 5 other guys that would fit under the Probable tag...

    Another thought: People, myself included, are looking at the injuries and trying to figure out if it is something related to the staff. The Redwings suffer about as many injuries as Tech, it seems, and nobody is questioning Babcock or the Redwings trainers.

    Similar number of injuries, yet we (me) tend to scrutinize Tech's injuries more because we are losing.

    Guess I hadn't thought about that before.

    The Wings have the depth to still win games without Datsyuk, Cleary, etc. Tech does not, and cannot ever be expected to have that kind of depth.

    Be that as it may, throwing records aside, I am wondering why we (I) treat the injury culture of the Detroit Redwings different than I treat the injury culture of Tech. I know that winning and depth has a lot to do with it. However, we sit here and criticize the Tech coaching staff and training staff because we have X number of injuries, and yet the Redwings could have a number of injuries pretty close to X and it is just bad luck. I guess my point is that perhaps I should just accept that the recent injury culture of Michigan Tech is potentially a statistical abberation instead of trying to pinpoint and create an exact reason for it and place blame.

    Now, there are other major differences between the teams. One wins, the other has the PLC (not to be confused with the PLGC).

    I got a new flask, and tonight's hockey game is a better than ever reason to break it in...brought it to the broomball rinks for pre and post drinking

    Well really Tech continues to improve, more won faceoffs, better positional play, still a ways to go though. Just too many turnovers. There are so many injuries and so many freshmen, (sigh...) I liked how Gubb played. Olson really is not anywhere near 100%. Royer is a lot better than I remember and he will help in a couple weeks.
    I was impressed with umd forwards but all the holding and the interference puzzles me. If they are so good why do that ****.?
