In Lieu of an actual preview of any sort, I submit tonight's 9-0 victory by UAF over the University of Windsor Lancers. Nuff said. Doesn't matter who or what the Lancers are about since the upcoming UAA exhibition against them is nothing more than the first chance for Coach Shyiak to really see what he can do with his extensive lineup.
No doubt every Seawolves player will be eager to hit the ice regardless of the apparent caliber of the opponent. And who knows? Maybe Fairbanks is "that good"? Aren't they some number on that preseason poll thingy that just came out? But maybe they're better than "that good"?
Think about it. What do the eastern-centric sports press know about a hockey team in Alaska? Zero. So I bet Fairbanks would actually be #1 in the polls if there wasn't an eastern bias to the college hockey media.
Wow. So next weekend when the real hockey starts we'll get to see the #1 team in the country (UAF) play the #2 team in the country (UND) at the Sullivan? Ok then.
If you're listening to tomorrow night's game on the radio and sitting around your computer make sure to stop by here. I'll have the CoverItLive chat room going.
Best of luck to the team and to each and every guy fighting for a spot in the lineup. I hope nobody feels safe about their spot in the lineup.
