MHNet - Been following you for years and appreciate all you do for M-Hockey and the fans. The sad realization to all this is? Yep you guessed it, hockey is dying. It's not just due to the rise in ticket prices or the economy. Non Die-hard hockey fans just aren't interested. To the faithful and loyal hockey people we can't see forest for the trees.
There's no more excitement in hockey these days and well Michigan hasn't put a championship product on the ice in years. Wins excite people and get them into the game. Again I'm talking about non-hockey people.
NHL has no major deal with ESPN and that hurts exposure too. I really don't like to admit it, but hockey is dying and may cease to exist some day.
As for season tickets I dropped down from 4 to 3 this year but asked for section 3 instead of section 1. I get a UM discount on the first two seats, but anything after that I have to pay full price. I think the total for all 3 was just short of $1300.00 for the year. This is section 1 top of the faceoff circle just a few rows up from the glass. They're good seats, but section 3 is better.

I am looking to sell my Michigan Hockey season ticket package (at face value of course) for this coming season.
Seats are in section 8, row 10, seats 1,2,3,4.
The seats are actually closer to section 7 - If you look at the above picture, the seats are right next to the entrance (little white box) almost exactly in the middle of the face off circle. If you're interested please send me an email or reply. I don't know how much the package is this year.
edit: Doh, need email address to email me, duh! firstname.lastname@example.org

TEAM LEADERSHIP - The coaches can only coach so much. You need a leader in the locker room to step up and take the reins. I thought Summers would be the leader this year, but from what I've heard and seen that's not the case.
This team is unbelievably talented, but they lack the on-ice leadership they so greatly desire. Don't give up on them until it's over. This team has the capability and firepower to beat any team in the nation.

Ok man maybe he wasn't the worst, but he still sucked. I saw him make just as many bad and favorable calls (both ways) in his career. Nobody is perfect, but this guy isn't even close to good.
Sorry I hit a nerve there with your boy Steve. A turd is still a turd even if you're the best one in the bowl.

Is that what he pulled out of the net and threw to the students? Candy? It's hard to see from section 8, but you know how you students just hammer the linesmen to "CHECK THE NET" Next thing I know Tunison is throwing two objects over the glass into the student section.
PS - Molina's a pretty cool dude too. Linesmen seem to be ok, but once they get those orange stripes they seem to drop a chromosome.

Louie is still on the team? I thought he was "MIA" around September 2009?
|4 years 23 weeks ago||CCHA Refs are the worst EVER!||
The worst refs ever in the history of the game all are from the CCHA
Wilkins, Shegos, Hill, Hall, Piotroski (retired tard running his band of tards), and McInchak (This dude is crazy).
You can throw Langseth in there too even though he hasn't been a referee that long. What's the big tall dopey ref who played at either FSU or LSSU? Ahh I can't think, (from slapshot) Oh what's his name...?
Blown call, but who will be held accountable? That's right, NO-FUCKING-BODY! Because Steve Piotrowski has nuts the size of pebbles. He's just riding his time out makin' a good dime.

But if not, I'm a HUGE Michigan Hockey fan, season ticket holder and lover of the game. Live From Yost every Friday and Saturday night (when they're playing at home).
919 Brown - Good Times my friend, good times!
|4 years 23 weeks ago||The "Who Cares" chant at Yost + CHagelin||
Yes the students still use the who cares chant. It's, "WHO CARES, YOU SUCK!" with backs turned reading a newspaper. The Students are what make Yost so awesome!
As for the Swedish flag, that's awesome! Very cool Mom. Here's my contribution of Carl Hagelin. Taken in 2008 at Lawson Ice Arena.

I agree they should offer tickets to local alumni organizations AND current season ticket holders. There may not be a shortage of tickets, but rather a shortage of GOOD tickets.
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Langlais||
At least Langlais has a slapshot and isn't afraid to shoot it. When's the last time you saw Chris Summers fire a heater from the blue line? I'll clue you in - Never!
Langlais has skill and puck handling abilities. On the other hand Llewellyn is undisciplined and takes too many dumb penalties.
Burlon is a stud and will continue to improve. Moffie is also a stud and has a bright future.
Kampfer is usually solid, but he also plays undisciplined and takes dumb penalties - See Saturday night's trip in Big Rapids.
919 Brown - Was there too and heard that old man. Completely and utterly annoying. He probably hasn't stepped onto the ice once in his life, but yet he's an expert and "know it all."
