The Team That Stole Our Name Fades Before Xmas

From: Fairbanks Daily News

by Danny Martin

This is billed as a joyous time of the year, especially when there is no joy for the Alaska Nanooks hockey team. Saturday night’s dismal 6-4 loss to Bowling Green State University at the Carlson Center, ended a nine-game losing streak for the Falcons.

The 19th-ranked Nanooks aren’t going home for the holidays with happy faces. Instead, they’re heading on a two-week break with losses in three of their last four games and with a 5-4-3 league and 7-5-4 overall mark for a sixth-place tie with Ohio State in the Central Michigan Hockey Association standings.

The Nanooks visit Alaska Anchorage at Sullivan Arena on Dec. 29-30 for the final two games of this season’s Alaska Airlines Governor’s Cup series.

The Seawolves’ eight wins are two more than they had all of last season and half of this season’s wins came against nationally-ranked Western Collegiate Hockey Association opponents.

Why waste space on TAFKAF? They think that they are soooooo special that they get to be "Alaska". I personally think that their coach is a hot head and will continue to lose his team. Greentree is a special player, but who else do they have? Their goaltending is good but won't be able to keep them above .500, but oh, wait they play in the CupCake Conference, so they have a chance for home ice. I'd like to see them continue to get heir asses beat down by teams like BG and other no-names.
