We do not have a go to guy. It was Schroeder last yeat, Stoa, Wheeler. it was obvious. This year it will be easy for tDon to create some urgency for playing time. Force players to work hard.
We have players will something to prove. Cepis did not come here to not win. Barriball did not red shirt to play .500 hockey. Kangas will be a senior and has yet to win an NCAA game. Fairchild wants his two year ago form back. White does not want to be a bust any more. if they step up thats another story.
Ambroz might be playing for the number 1 overal selection next year.
Buddish will be looking for a nice ro deal.
Matson. Stay healthy, thats all.
Its alot of what ifs. I would imagine at least one Vannelli will come through and the fresh will surprise. And its more of the same. new coach.
They definitely have a bunch guys that have a lot to prove. They really could use a defenseman with a big shot that can run the power play. They actually need more forwards who can shoot well.
The defensemen need to play more physical and keep traffic from Kangas. The dmen they have are too small and get out muscled too easily -- especially Ness.
They need more guys who can go to the net and get garbage goals, like Cepis. Too often in the past, guys have been looking to score the "pretty" goals.
Having depth is good, but guys need to step it up and create some more competition on the team for starting spots.
