Mismash was cut from the World Junior Showcase this morning.  I found that kind of odd given some of the names remaining.

Also surprising given some of what I saw on twitter. Sounded like he had impressed some folks.

Don't you understand? Some NHL Hall of Famer's kid has to have a spot on the team, so someone has to fall on the sword. And this time, it's Mismash. :silly:

He had a few big hits but didnt put up points.  Motzko had him on the 4th line the whole time.

I know you're joking but who were you referring too?  If it's Tkuchuk he's actually very good.

I heard some people during the WJC last year commenting on this topic. And it seemed like there was some nepotism going on. And yes, I know we won gold last year, but that doesn't mean there isn't some favoritism going on.

I mean there has to be a bit.  Mismash was never put in a top 9 role and Dooghe (5"3" 135 lbs) made the cut.  Mishmash was tied for the point lead on the U18 team last year and the rest of those boys seemed to make the first cut.  Berry needs to put Mismash with Pogo and Rhett and get him some points.  If we don't have any of our boys on the U20 team this year that'll be a buzzkill.

This current team is littered with Big10 and HE players.

I'm ok with having our full team for the entire season!!  Especially Mismash!

Really? I thought it was about putting the best team we can on the ice so we can shut up the Canadians. Guess not. :silly:

Never has been, probably never will be. Too much politics.

Bellow is such a waste of space out there...maybe that's who FSFL was talking about.

That is a good example of what I was talking about, I am sure it is not the only example.

"Center ice will have the new North Dakota hockey font, which was revealed last summer, inside the circle. It will say 'Ralph Engelstad Arena' around the outside of the circle."

Looks like text instead of the logo, which did not look great last time we did it (as has been stated before on here).

EDIT - Looks like this was posted in the "What do you think of the logo now?" thread and I missed it. Feel free to move or delete.

With Wisconsin getting a new score/video board I think its time for the Ralph to get a NHL style score/video board and an on-ice projection system. It's time to be ahead of the rest of the NCAA.

Yeah I agree, it's due for an upgrade. 

However, it may take longer than usual when REA staff considers that part of what you're taking down can't go back up(See: gold lettering in the middle & logo under scoreboard).

Parts of it were in the works but temporarily put on hold.

With the logo issue, sounds like we'll have this scoreboard for the full 30 years.

I'm sure the school could repurpose the score/video board in the Olympic arena or maybe the Betty. 

It is time to move on with the whole nickname issue, nobody won and we all lost.

I bet it will be replaced with what the NHL uses within a year or two.

No way UND lets anyone have the upper hand on them in hockey facilities.

I agree, I'd love to see a video board similar to the Wild or Lightning(on a smaller scale obviously).

This is the part that I think a lot of people miss when they describe upgrades they would like to see at REA.  Everything needs to be scaled down to a significantly smaller facility.  While ice projection is a natural feature that is actually overdue (especially for a school that is trying to remain at the top facilities-wise), they can really only do so much with a right-sized suspended center display.  I believe that REA has done an incredible job keeping up with the technology and the resolution of the hanging video boards is very good.  A monster scoreboard may have negative aesthetic consequences we wouldn't fully appreciate until after it was too late.

I don't think the golden FIGHTING SIOUX ring is what's holding things up.  At least I hope not, because that would be f'in ridiculous and short-sighted.

That would be a cool idea, if possible. As for the REA, as much as I love seeing Fighting Sioux up there, state of the art facilities is more important.

Kohl Center is going with a score board like the one at Madison Square Garden (or at least similar to it). So one of similar scale of Amalie Arena or the Xcel Energy Center could work. The hight of the score board at Amalie Arena looks to be close to about the same as the whole score/video board in the Ralph. Most of these score boards in the NHL have small screens underneath for the rows closer the the ice to see replays in the board. The ice projection system costs at least $1 million.
