You Want Answers?!?!

 The Mavericks have three regular-seasons series remaining, starting this weekend at Colorado College, and you know what that means: It's that time again. Time for your questions. Time for my answers. Ask away in the comments section of this post, and I'll give you my 2 cents by Thursday.

In the meantime, read today's column in The Free Press.

I wrote you last time asking why the Mavs couldn't get the job done in the third period against some of their higher ranked opponents. This week, I feel like they couldn't get the job done in any period despite the series split with BSU.

I couldn't see the games live, but 81 shots in two games, and only two goals... what happened? Were they just taking easy shots for Bakala to stop, or what? How do you explain the "struggles in the goal-scoring department" as you called it? And do you really believe this is something they can fix/overcome in time for the post-season?

I'm guessing last year's jersey auction made some good money, since MSU is doing another one so soon. That makes me have a few questions:

1. How much money did last year's auction make?

2. Which 3 jerseys were the top sellers last year?

3. If you could design a regular alternate jersey for the Mavs, what would it look like?

1) I know that the civic center is on Gov. Dayton's list for his bonding bill proposal. While it's unlikely that this goes through, what kind of renovations are we looking at?

2) I've mentioned this before, but don't know if you were able to answer. Is there a reason that the Mavs have a more defensive philosophy now than the early 2000s? Is it a result of a change in Jutting's tactics or more of a result based upon the recruits we are able to bring in?

1. the second line with grant and galiardi have stayed the same while the other wing on that line keeps getting rotated is the plan to keep rotating lehrke, mcinnis and leivermann in?

2. have they made changes to their power play at all this week in practice?

3. what team do you think we matchup against the best for the playoffs?

My question goes with Alex's #3 regarding playoff matchups. What's the best we can hope for in the next 4 weeks and what's the worst that can happen? I realize a month is a long time and we have the ability to earn (or lose) 12 points.

What has the message been at practice this week? Has the powerplay been the focus?
