This team is scary bad. It's hard to believe this proud program has fallen this far.

This team is terrible in their own end of the rink. They leave people open everywhere and give up scoring chance after scoring chance. It will continue to be a long year.

Years ago it would have been unthinkable to not win a game against teams like Union and Ferris State in your own tournament.

We turn the puck over in our own zone every game, continually leaving our goalies hung out to dry. Why is it so hard to correct?

This guy has more excuses than any coach in U history. Let's face the facts: Lucia is not that good a coach, he's a terrible recruiter, has a laughable coaching staff because no qualified coach could stand to be around the arrogant as s, his record the past five years is awful, and it has nothing to do with his illness of 2 seasons ago. It is long past time for this juke of a coach to go. Or are we going to have to wait until he drags his youngest son through here too. Mark my words if he is still coach his youngest will be a Gopher playing power play, penalty kill, team captain, etc. Funny how coaches always say the parents should stay out of it yet they are consistently the worst offenders.

Minnesota's Pride on Ice is a national laughingstock. This is an awful brand of hockey....certainly not close to worth $35/ticket. When is the U and the media going to stop supporting the mediocrity this guy has perpetuated on us for several years now. It's embarrassing to lose to Holy Cross, Union, get drubbed by the likes of North Dakota et al. It's also embarrassing to see so many empty seats or seats sold to opponent's fans.

FIRE LUCIA NOW and bring in a winner: former Gopher Dean Blais.

It is time for this program to turn the page. Lucia has simply lost touch with the program and has led it down the path of destruction. His team is not getting better, they continue to spin their wheels in the mud and the only movement for the program is downward! Either Maturi must act....or Maturi must go and bring someone in that will replace Lucia and hire someone to restore honor to the program. This is simply unacceptable!!! It was unacceptable when Woog led the program to these depths many years ago. It is still unacceptable under Lucia!

who is Jake Bjustad. I thought the Gopher has a player named Nick Bjustad. Also UND is ranked 2 not 5. Come on journalists.

If you want to understand Don Lucia watch this:
His 1st quote says it all, I have the 2nd best coaching job in hockey, the best job is head coach at an orphanage. No wonder parents don't want their kids to play for him.
