    Power play

    There are many reasons why this is so frustrating to fans: - It has been going on for so long - There is no reason with our talent (other than this year - a whole other issue) that it should occur - Although we have a coaching staff with outstanding resumes, absolutely nothing seems to change - nothing (including having Shaw in charge) - Other teams with a much lesser roster seem to have much less trouble - It is brutal on the eye test - no bang bang plays, no back doors, no crisp passing, no overloads caused by quick passing, very little in front of the net presence, just endless perimeter passing, teeing it up, passing some more, then either shooting in to someones' shins or losing the puck - rinse repeat. - Did I mention that nothing ever seems to change? - This bears repeating. - Oh, and it has cost us (especially last year when one more win would have put us in the tourney) and will continue to bite us.

    If by "weak" you mean stupid, then you are absolutely correct.

    I just can't get my head around how our once proud and top program turned into a train-wreck just 2 1/2 short years after winning a National Championship. It makes no sense to me - I get the blank class, but still, many teams have a weak class and have worked around it - it seems like absolutely NO ONE is developing. How we can be this inept offensively is totally beyond me. Any insights?

    Sadly, UND has no track record of making appropriate, timely coaching changes. Bubba is still wandering around here, although a recent epiphany came to him that he should look a bit at the offense. If this is allowed to go on much longer I will be really worried about our return to relevance.

    Berry has been allowed to go on like this for far too long because we were elated after out title and now no one can believe how we got so crappy so fast. WE kept on thinking that we are UND and the ship will right real soon. We are going the wrong way and fast.

    Why are the Euros still on the roster (aside from being a Coach's dream) - What do they bring to the table - how many years have they been unproductive? An example of our new program.

    This is totally unacceptable. My God we have a lot of deadwood on this team and we see committed to keeping them and let them cruise around in games - with the occasional stupid penalty or shot into the goalie logo.

    I did a spit take on reading this one.

    Apparently Bubba's just noticed that the offense needs a little attention. He's the definition of tunnel vision.

    When are our scorers going to bloom - 3 years is a long time to blame on one class.

    ST coordinator eh? Another opportunity lost because Bubba.

    My sentiments also - I would feel better, however, if Duluth hadn't been kicking our butts lately and we weren't in dire need of scorers.

    It's coaches that recruit the players that can't put the puck in open nets.

    Without specifics these numbers are meaningless - there is a big difference between a desperation 4th and 17 as the last play of a half and a 4th and 1 or 2 at the 50 or closer - especially one that gives you a chance to win the game. Of those who were watching the games, many disagreed with Bubba's calls - looks like the players did too. In addition, poor teams make fewer first downs on second and third down placing them in more 4th down situations than good teams. They also tend to have many more desperation situations than teams that usually have the lead. Many teams would go for a 4th down situation if they were behind and needed a score but not go for it if they were up by 20 points.
