I was disapointed at the end. Then going to GPL with all the fire Lucia, good riddence to Bjugstad, Buddish, Haula and Schmit and welcome in the new blood. I had to step back for a second.
Winning the conference was big, going undefeated in non conference was really tough. Losing sucks but hardware is nice. Still a disapointing season.
My only concern with Lucia is when he switches things up. Last year Rau, Buddish and Bjugstad was a great line. Why break that up? Balance? Haula, Condon and Warning was a great 2nd line. Why toss Issackson into the top line, clearly not one of your top 6 forwards.
We win a season title becasue of balance. But in crunch time, we play out the balance and do not panic. That bites you in the butt. Saying look you three have to get it done, is sometimes the best thing to do. I would like him to devolp a #1 line and ride that line hard.
