Enjoy It While It Lasts

Looking at the leading scorers in the country, there are three players who have scored 5 points so far this season. One is Colgate's Tyler Burton. The other two are a pair of players from Alaska-Anchorage; sophomores Kevin Clark and Josh Lunden.

Granted, most teams have played 2 games, and some haven't played any, but it's still strange to see UAA at the top of a scoring table. Anchorage is just two years removed from a season where nobody on their team scored more than 15 points. Now, they've got two guys who are a third of the way to that mark after just one weekend.

Anchorage got a win and a tie last weekend, and this weekend, host rival Alaska, who is in full-on rebuilding mode this year. After that, they host a two game set against Minnesota State. The Seawolves have a nice opportunity to really boost up their record at the start of the season before they get into the heart of the WCHA schedule.



Believe they were 1-0-1 on the weekend but they obviously played well.

Nice job Seawolves!

Kyle Turris has 2 goals and 3 assists as well, that would give him 5.

By "Enjoy It While It Lasts" you do mean all season and forever, right? I am full of optimism. Actually I believe that the Seawolves will continue to progress and will do much better than last year. I don't see them at the bottom again. Dave has pointed to the problem of conditioning and is seeking to improve it, while we might not have a skating treadmill we should be better off than last year. Also, I think that the freshman will score on par with last year and the sophmores will pick up and not slump. The upper classmen will put some points up but do to small class size probably not as much.

Things are looking up in A-Town, now lets deal with our 'rivals' 74-48-10 doesn't seem much like a rivalry more like a shellacking.

It will be interesting to see how they react when they get into the tough series versus the top teams in the W. But for now, keep winning, and no CFB's!!!
