Join host Alex Ackerman in this bonus episode of Syracuse Speaks. Alex expresses her feelings about the Crunch facing elimination by the Laval Rocket in the 2022 North Division Semifinals. Syracuse is currently down 2-1 in the five-game series. The Crunch have shown the overemotional, scrambling tendencies, that were more like the Crunch of the first half of the season. Alex acknowledges the frustration the team’s fans are feeling. She discusses why this is such a letdown to the Syracuse faithful and admits to being gobsmacked by the sudden disappearance of team powerhouses Gabriel Dumont, Charles Hudon, and Alex Barre-Boulet from the scoresheet. Alex gives credit to Remi Elie, Anthony Richard, and Daniel Walcott. She also discusses how the loss of defensemen Sean Day and Alex Green are affecting the team, when combined with the lack of scoring from the team’s top talent. As a result, Alex makes the prediction that the semi-Cinderella-esque season will truly be over if the best players don’t start looking like Syracuse’s best players.
