  1. I have two and I don't think I will be able to make so mine are most likely available.
  2. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Not to mention Gornall has to greatly regret his hasty decision as he would have seen plenty of ice time based on the lineups we were consistently sending out the second half of the season.
  3. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    100% agree. He works hard but has horrendous hands therefore should not play on a scoring line. His assets are to use his size and speed for puck retrieval.
  4. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    As you can see by the lineup that we sent out the vast majority of the second half, these are the type of players the head man prefers apparently. As has been stated on this board numerous times, when an offensively challenged team sits three pretty skilled forwards (Hoff, Adams, Yon) for a slow footed defensive defenseman at forward something is wrong. Offensive skilled forwards had extremely short leashes whereas our low-skilled grinder type forwards had miles. To me Smith is a great example. He had two or three good weekends in a row in November-December which bought him a regular lineup spot the rest of the year even though he did basically nothing in the second half.

    I really couldn't figure out why Adams had such a short leash yet Kawaguchi was put out there every night. Yes Kawaguchi came on in the second half but all the things describing Adams (not strong, defensive liability) all describe Kawaguchi as well. I had Adams as the much better player in the first half. A stiff breeze could knock Guch off the puck and his skating is suspect at best.
  6. NORTH DAKOTA vs. uno mavs - GAME 2 GAMEDAY

    This I couldn't agree with more but I've said I don't like our lineup decisions so often I'm beating a dead horse. I would take a line of Adams-Hoff-Yon (who are our healthy scratches) over at least one if not two of our current lines. Unfortunately or I guess fortunately since we just won two games in a row I don't see any lineup changes moving forward.

    It's absolutely insane for a team as offensively challenged as this one to suit up a slow footed d-man at forward over three healthy forwards. We don't need two grinder lines. One is plenty!

    I've said it for a while now that I haven't been a fan of the lineup decisions the coaching staff has been making.

    Are we certain Hain is coming in for sure next year? His stock has really fallen in the last year and it wouldn't hurt to have him play a year in the USHL after his year with the NTDP.
  10. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Yes correct he was brought in as a D-man.

    Gaarder and Pattyn were along with Senkbeil. All walk-ons in a year in which we lost JT Miller in July or August. It's hard to believe that team won the Final Five playing with 11 forwards the last two months of the year with 3 being walk-ons in Gaarder, Pattyn and Senkbeil and a fourth being a d-man in Joe Gleason.
  12. NORTH DAKOTA @ Bulldogs - SATURDAY Gameday

    Agree to disagree. In my opinion, he is our 14th forward and it's not close. The puck is a hot potato on his stick and his skating is atrocious. Slowest forward I may have ever seen play at UND.
  13. NORTH DAKOTA @ Bulldogs - SATURDAY Gameday

    People need to get over this. Eades is never coming back to UND. He was lucky he was able to leave in a way to not embarrass himself on what happened while he was still at UND.
  14. NORTH DAKOTA @ Bulldogs - SATURDAY Gameday

    I've said this before in previous threads that the love affair for this line could be this team's detriment. Like you said 26 had a good run before Xmas but they have done nothing since and don't need to be penciled in nightly in the lineup and playing 2nd-3rd line minutes. 11 needs to be in a suit.

    100% agree
