    I do too. We've been very fortunate to have character guys as head coaches. They are all intense and will do things from time to time they probably regret, but they have been great character models, and I think that is why they have all been good program coaches.

    The game moved slower for Rocco than it did for most of his team mates. That would not have been true for Schmaltz or for Caggiula after he had played a couple of years.

    That is similar to my line of thinking, particularly the last decade part. They seem always to be in the mix. Off the cuff, I guess I think of DU, UMD, UND, SCSU, UMinn, UW, MICH, BU, BC, PROV., maybe CORNELL. Maine is an example of a school that has certainly been a traditional power, but I don't think of them in that group currently. This is very subjective using any methodology, and I'm sure my list can be ripped apart easily. But that sort of reflects how I perceive SCSU at this time.
  4. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    That is a very good question. I'll try to give that some time, as I didn't really think that through. You really hit the crux of it, though. And, btw, I did not say traditional hockey power. I think there is some difference, though I haven't really thought that through very much either.

    You forgot the ugly rink factor.
  6. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    I'd say SCSU IS a college hockey power. Whether they are "better" or "worse" than UND depends on the wants and needs of the recruit and our considerable prejudices. As a UND fan, I think they lag behind us, but I've tried and tried to get those green glasses off, and they appear to have just grown into my face somehow. Probably won't be asked to be a neutral judge because of it, but I like the view.

    All true, but to be fair, you don't win with great defense without everyone being on board, and that includes forwards you might look to for scoring. I think this team knows it must will with good defense first, and it influences the game plan. That doesn't include an agreement to shoot the puck into the goalie's logo, of course.

    Maybe they should sit down with Dave K for a few minutes so they can understand what they might be passing up.
  9. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    I agree. I trust our coaches too.

    And that the games they won against top teams last year was no fluke.
  11. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    Despite their relative success, this team must win with defense and team play. Snipers are few and far between, but we knew that coming into the season.
  12. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    I thought there was a reasonable chance for a split, and this was damn close to that. Rest up, spend some time with family, and come back hungry for a strong finish. Not a bad first half, all in all.
  13. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    Shouldn't even need that for two minutes, should you?
  14. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - SATURDAY Gameday

    If this night continues to go the wrong direction, I hope the discussion isn't all about the refs.

    What scpa is saying is that he feels terrible. Nothing more.
