  1. I would suspect that once again there will be a few teams in the NCHC that will be very good next year and that have a legitimate shot at a Natty with a few breaks. When it comes down to one and done, there are always upsets on the way and the best team does not always win it all. Long ways to go before next April and there will be alot of development of players during that period of time. UND has a number of candidates capable of taking that next step and I have no doubt we will be "In the Hunt" as usual next year.
  2. I would suspect that maybe Chartrand is not coming back. His playing time has been non-existent.
  3. City council doesn't know it yet, but name has been changed to Hawks Falls!
  4. So things have changed a little bit with Borgstrom. A couple of weeks ago the hockey pundits made it sound like he was very likely to come back. If Montgomery does decide to leave, that will be a significant factor in some of these players decisions. You just won a Natty, new coach coming in with a new personality and possible philosophical differences. Life probably does not get better at DU than it was this past year. I have no doubt they will continue to field a strong team, however they are losing a significant number of players and talent even without early departures.
  5. I suppose the NCAA will require Sioux Falls to change their name to something like "Hawk Falls"?
  6. Have to believe there will be a number of other early departures from both DU and UMD in the next few weeks.
  7. Probably would be up to 20-25 Natty's by now.
  8. If they had beat us last year does not mean they would have won #9 this year. In that scenario, if we had not been called for offsides against BU, we could have been holding up #9 if things broke right. Alot of if's. A Natty changes a players perspective on things and it will be interesting to see how many of their underclassmen now decide to sign contracts. A player like Terry may now determine that his mission has been accomplished at DU and with the pressure he will be getting, makes it much easier to go pro with a Natty in your back pocket.
  9. Smith really came on at the end of the year. His length and physicality was effective at the end of the season.
  10. My thoughts entirely. At times I joke that we should decline the penalty.
  11. I agree, Jones had a pretty good year and also has some college experience at Ohio State.
  12. Agreed that legacy for 1 year and not winning a Natty, will be minimal. Hopefully his decision to go now works out the best for him in the long run. That being said, if he had returned, would most likely have furthered his leadership abilities and that could be a big benefit of his success at the NHL level.
  13. Looks to me like depth will be a big asset next year. N. Jones should see significant minutes along with C. Adams.
  14. Just take C. Sanderson off last year's team.
  15. I wouldn't give up on Wilkie just yet. We have had a number of players over the years that all of a sudden blossomed in their last year or 2. Everybody was all over O'Donnell his first couple of years and he was a pretty important part of the team at the end. There are others. I would not be surprised to see Wilkie become a solid contributor. I also think that Januatuinen and Hoff have very nice careers at UND.
