I can say on pretty good authority that there was a real disconnect between the team and the coaches and between the coaches as well that year. Heck, I failed to include Rau! That makes 8 guys!

Iceburg is correct, no relation to the Sheehy hockey clan from Minnesota. Congrats to Tyler, Would have loved to have seen him here but with all the smaller guys coming in I think he got caught up in that.
