  1. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    If it were me ... I would go for the better hockey series. Sightseeing is hard to recommend because so much is personal preference. What do you love to do? From Denver, I might just drive up into the mountains on Saturday morning and have breakfast in Breckenridge or Frisco. In Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods is a great place to spend a couple hours walking in an other worldly setting; the Olympic Training Center is something different and interesting, the Pikes Peak Railway is also something you just don't get to see in the flatlands. If your schedule allows it, add a day or two.
  2. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    In a related story, the University of Minnesota announced a sell-out crowd of 10,200 for the press conference.
  3. NCHC Frozen Faceoff - Target Center

    Seems like there should be some way to have the NCHC at the X and the Summit League tournament at Target Center.
  4. Congratulations, Carter Rowney!

    (Figured this should get its own thread, separate from the rest of the Stanley Cup discussion.) Proud to call you a Fighting Sioux (forever)! Savor every minute, and enjoy the summer. Well done, young man.
  5. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Wow, the fish were really flying tonight! Nashville playing more like the team that ripped through the Western Conference. I was thinking his TOI was down, but the box score says otherwise. Of course, your non-factor observation is true. https://www.nhl.com/gamecenter/pit-vs-nsh/2017/06/03/2016030413#game=2016030413,game_state=final,game_tab=stats Liking Roman Josi more, the more I see him play. Quietly effective.
  6. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Excellent observations. Would asterisk the other two forwards - Malkin and Crosby - who played at the Ralph in the 2005 World Juniors.
  7. 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    I am happy that Carter Rowney will get a chance to play for the Stanley Cup. Other than that.... hmm. I'll have to get back to you on that.
  8. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Quote from CBS is a bit different. I don't know which is true, just quoting a source. From the article below: Sources also told CBS Sports that the Missouri Valley intends to remain at 10 teams for the forseeable future. Most coaches and athletic directors within the league prefer the 10-team format and schedule. "No one wanted to go to 12," a source said. http://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/missouri-valley-presidents-vote-for-valpo-to-replace-wichita-state-stay-at-10-teams/

    Or ... the rest of the locker room needs to ask the GM to trade him.
  10. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    Not gonna worry about buying tickets 2 years in advance for THAT one ...
  11. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    Can't speak for everyone else, but when it was "just sports", it was okay even if hockey didn't exist. But when it became half politics half sports, I bailed. There's enough propaganda channels on TV already.
  12. former players

    Agree. I think its a part of hockey culture. Just like the discussion about how nervous Paul LaDue was before the 2016 Title game and people kept needling him. It's what you do. What I found most interesting was that before his original commitment to Wi, he described considering just MN, WI and MI. Fascinating, and I bet there are a fair number of smart kids who don't look farther than that.
  13. UND to cut women's hockey

    So what you're saying is they drew double the Big Ten (men's) final four average.
