No that's not the score of a potential basketball game... that's the shots on goal stats from tonight's GLI championship. Michigan won 5-1 and has seemed to now permanently broken the Jeff Lerg mystique. By reading the accounts of the game, it sounds as if it was a classic "Red got pissed off and unleashed the hounds" type of game with some posters claiming Michigan could have won 10-1 if not for some goal posts and some nifty work by Lerg. Seriously, Comley's gotta feel some heat now. Multiple guys left the team, no scoring threat what so ever (and I'm sorry, but you coach at Michigan St one of the power teams in NCAA hockey, and you can't get a legit scoring threat in the past two recruiting classes?). From a recruiting point of view, do you want to go play with Comley's group of Prison Shower Shiv'ing all-stars who goon up the ice from start to finish, or would you rather go play at a open offensive system like Michigan, pretty much any Hockey East team, or NoDak/Minn/WCHA-is-the-greatest-conference-in-the-history-of-mankind? Unless you're Zdeno Chara, I think you're choosing the latter (especially as Comley's history of pro success stories is kind of short).
Hope this is the beginning of a second half run with HOOO-GAAAANNNNNN in net (come on Brian-- I'm waiting for my Sgt Schultz M-hockey tshirts), and GO BLUE!
