  1. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    Extra large participation banner?
  2. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    With the size of the big 10 schools and the resources at their disposal, it's a little shocking how weak their hockey teams have been. And most of those programs have been around a long time. Good at football.

    SCSU totally dominated that part of the game I was able to watch. But . . . that's hockey.

    Nice when new signees can join other alums with the big club, like Schmaltz with Toews, Boesser with Stecher, and Gersich with Oshie. I'm sure there are a lot of similar examples.

    There you go. And those numbers really could not have surprised anyone going into the season, either. Guys like Boeser and Schmaltz brought us a banner, but they left holes when they left, along with others. Schmaltz is turning into a key part of Chicago's offense, and Boeser was headed for ROY. Those guys don't come along very often. Time to build back.

    Or towels under the door.

    How many times did guys have passes from Rocco pass right through them they were not ready for?

    Wilbur has done well.

    Knew I'd catch it for the comments on Hextall and Prpich, and I'm not saying I'd prefer a lot of the guys on this team to them. Just responding to comments that UND has regrettably lost its physical intimidation factor. It's just not as simple as wanting the old style back. I liked those guys too.

    I'm happy if we have guys like Caggiula and Patton over physical/instigators from a while ago, like Prpich. This is a different game than it was 15 years ago, and the stick work and cross checking (even "finishing" checks) are just as likely to put you a man down as accomplish any kind of intimidation. And I'm OK with that-- UND can benefit from it. We did in '16. We all want our team to play a physical game, but playing smart, with the new enforcement trend, is more important, IMO. Prpich and even Hextall would fare less well in today's game. They were fun to have, but that kind of play won't win a banner nowadays. Give me speed, hustle, skill and smarts. That will intimidate.

    I'm optimistic that Guch is going to be a player. He might be one of those whose "ice intelligence" takes a while to develop. The game seemed to slow down a little for him the last part of the season. That kind of development is important for this group, because they need guys who can score. That's why Mismash's development next year will also be very important. I say those things without regard to team culture factors.

    That's far too stupid to be anything but a troll. Speaking of getting our mojo back: the trolling here has really become weak. They used to intimidate.
  14. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    I never did think Hextall would get very far in professional hockey.

    That's good, MM. Second place would be a weak, wet fart.
