Ferris State hockey team needs more scoring for future seasons

See also

Ferris State's hockey team came oh-so close to making another trip to the Frozen Four this weekend. Last week's 2-1 overtime loss was a game that easily could have gone FSU's way.
Well, maybe some other time. Maybe next year?
Maybe.
Ferris could get this far again next year especially with a goalie like CJ Motte back in the fold. Like any other team, the Bulldogs simply need to identify who their scorers will be. The Bulldogs only scored two goals in two games at the NCAA regionals, which obviously serves notice they need to improve their offense if they hope to have a chance to eventually play in the Frozen Four as they did two years ago.
Having a goalie like C.J. Motte will obviously make the Bulldogs the team to beat in the WCHA next season. But goalies can carry teams only so far. Without the ability to score three or four goals a game on an average, no one will hang onto first place in any league.
Bob Daniels and the Bulldogs deserve plenty of credit for winning Ferris' third major hockey conference title in 11 seasons. Now they've got their fans spoiled and expectations are high. To fulfill those expectations, the Bulldogs definitely need to improve their offense.
Ferris loses some good scoring for next year but should have enough talent returning to the roster to be a threat.
