Three shots in the second period against SMU Saturday night, one in the first half of the third. They couldn't touch the puck. Groenheyde looked completely frustrated. Crowds are already starting to fall off at Grant Harvey. Looks like a long season ahead.
Agree, I think most fans were looking forward to a better Tommie team in a brand new building, but the results speak for themselves. Bill Hunt's article stated that this was the year that STU needed to turn it around. I think it's clear that they are going to struggle game in and game out. Maybe they need someone like Belliveau or Coolen to recruit. This league just gets better and better every year, it's tough to make a move up the ladder!
I hope the fans and media don't turn this thing into a circus!
