SYRACUSE SPEAKS: Time to Raise the Bar? (podcast)

  • / Updated:
  • Paul Russo 

In this episode, recorded the week following Syracuse’s playoff collapse in the 2023 North Division Semifinals, Alex Ackerman ponders a question that’s been on her mind all season long; Is it time for the Tampa Bay Lightning to raise the bar for their farm team? If so, how could that be accomplished? What would it look like?  In considering all of this, Alex takes a look at Syracuse’s playoff outings dating back to 2017, the low spread of scoring on the team this season, and what she considers the new status quo for the league when it comes to the sheer number of teams making the playoffs.
