Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

For the first time I can remember this year, towards the end of the Penn State game, Belein completely lost it on the sideline. What caused Belein's freak-out? Stauskas and his defense or lack thereof.
I wonder if Stauskas does not start versus MSU and if so:
a) start McGary and Morgan to counter MSU's size and rebounding
b) start Lavert to get more active hands/feet in the game to pressure Harris
Even if sitting Stauskas is not the long term solution I think it might be a great message to the team that if your defense is sub-par you are going to sit. Also, it seemed to me Stauskas played with a chip on his shoulder early in the year when he was not starting. Coming off the bench could re-insert that chip.
There are no silver linings from the Penn State loss unless it serves as a wake up call. Sitting someone for poor defense can help make it that wake up call, IMO.

I have been a long time reader but never posted. This topic finally compelled me to post.
MGoBlog is incredible and makes me laugh out loud besides adding to my Michigan knowledge. Brian's writing style is what makes the blog and the other writers add different viewpopints.
Keep up the good work!!
