It hasn't happened, even in spite of hosting the Nationals in 2009 and 2010 which should be a sure-fire recipe for success!
I remain surprised and perplexed as to why Lakehead hasn't taken the next step.
I think they are still doing a good job recruiting. Dias left after one season and he was a pure goal scorer. Hogg left for pros a year early. I see his stats this year... I think that was a mistake for him. Scherban was a great player but is not a good coach. His teams don't adapt well to styles played by the opposition (westen has 3 shutouts in a row against us) He really has no experience. Its easy to make him the scape goat but the results speak for themselves... LU is very undisciplined this year as well. Goal tending and defense have been pretty good. They just can't put the puck in the net. Looking at the power play Westen has compared to lakehead... Singer is out coaching scherban hands down. Its too bad because I do think the skill is there. There is lots of rookies on this years team so if it falls apart here... we do have something to look forward too.
