  1. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    If you had told me at the start of the season that the Sioux would win 4-1 to end the season I would have thought they got #9. I believe only two teams will win their final game this season. Not too often that UND wins the final game they play and do not hang another banner.
  2. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Not true. They beat Anchorage (pairwise #60) in the second game of the series and then followed it up with a sweep of St. Lawrence (pairwise #59) the next weekend.
  3. North Dakota @ Miami - Saturday Gameday

    This is not a very good team. They’ve only won 14 of 33 games to this point with the longest winning streak being three games. Those three wins came against the two worst teams in college hockey, Alaska Anchorage and St. Lawrence. This team lacks high skill players this year. Without the skill their only hope is to play smart with maximum effort. Too often they fail mightily in one or both of these areas.

    That was some serious effed up officiating. On the fake penalty to smith the refs must not have seen the play and just took the word of arrogant whiner or they saw it and still ruled it a 5- min major. Pure incompetent officiating and deserving of suspension from the league. Arrogant whiner should be suspended for endangering the welfare of a player who had no business dressing for this game. Two players bump in open ice and one goes down and has to be helped off the ice and can't even stand up ? I hope he is ok but the implication is that he was nowhere healthy enough to play tonight. If your going to give 5 min major and game disqualifications then you should have a video review to confirm. Those penalties can have an oversized impact on a game and as tonight graphically showed the refs are too incompetent to get it right (although I don't have a lot more confidence that they can make the correct call using video, see the BU playoff game last March for evidence).
  5. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    Confirms my belief that the entire coaching staff needs to go. Incompetent. Clock management is easy to do. No excuse for this. We have a team that is undisciplined, an offensive coach who is clueless, and a head coach who seems to have no idea how to manage the clock. All of this should be significantly better regardless of the talent on the field. Is this as bad as the Mussman regime? No but it is not a lot better. Just because it is better does not mean it is good enough.

    Looks like 9/22 http://www.uwbadgers.com/sports/2015/08/21/GEN_20140101617.aspx

    I saw this also but when you looked at the dates the posts were from last summer.
  8. NCHC Frozen Faceoff - Xcel Energy Center

    The NCHC wants to be the premier league and in terms of competitive teams they are right there. For the fans they have some room for major improvement in certain areas. The webcasts from a number of the schools are total crap, second rate broadcasts with very minimal effort and $$$ spent and then they have the audacity to charge for this poor product. As far as the target center goes it is a complete joke. No conference that wants to be the best should be holding any event in a dump like the TC, especially when you have one of the premier buildings just miles away. If they don't terminate the TC and move it to the XCEL by next season it will tell me the conference is just doing lip service on being the best.

    Refs certainly could have been better, but what do you expect with Todd Anderson ? He is the worst ref in all of college hockey, the undisputed champ for quite a long time. Pionk should have been tossed from the game. If you won't toss someone for what he did to Cam then it is open season on goalies. As far as Sandelin, I have not been a fan of his coaching for quite a while. Has nothing to do with the game or style tonight, I just don't think he is a good head coach. Hard to argue with his mediocre record at Duluth as his record is 312-283-82. To put it another way he has won less than half the games he coached. He would have been terminated long ago at UND with that type of record.

    Could this be Dean's last game of a great coaching career ? Hope not, but if UNO loses I think there is a possibility he retires.

    Lots of empty seats for W. Michigan game 3. The rink looks half empty.

    We will need to elevate our game to beat Arizona

    In the past the game times aren't posted until sometime on Monday.

    Looks like we get Arizona.
  15. NCHC Frozen Faceoff - Xcel Energy Center

    Not wrong at all. 51% they get an at large bid, the remaining 49% they will get the auto-bid. They can't have any higher chance for an at large bid if the rest of the time they get the auto-bid.
