    What was the name of the kid who pulled the plug on us a few years back in August of the year he was supposed to come and left Hak trying to find a kid to replace him. I think this kid went almost straight to the NHL. And who was the kid from Minn (I think Edina or someplace around there) that Hak recruited?
  3. I have listed for sale on Ticketmaster 4 tickets for the game. Unable to go.

    College Hockey Expansion

    In the Denver papers the last week or so it has been announced that Colorado College is building a new on campus hockey rink for their team/games. Has capacity to seat only 3,000. They have been playing at the World Ice Arena for many years and I have attended the North Dakota series for quite a few of those years. There is usually a good following of North Dakota fans coming from far and wide and I question whether there will be much room for us in a 3,000 size facility. If they were coming into the NCHC league today with such a small arena, would the NCHC give them much consideration? Didn't Arizona State apply with a similarly sized facility?

    Come on guys. I am just saying can we have a little more forward looking webpage to look at during the off-season? I got so so tired of being reminded of that awful BU loss as I’m sure young Bowen did too on another note, I returned to Grand Forks for the second time in 45 years and attended the regular season ending St Cloud series at the Ralph. Flew to Mpls and drove to Grand Forks. I noticed at one end of the Ralph a banner to (I think) retire Ralph Engelstads number and another banner along side it to retire Casey’s number. Assume this is Jon Casey former goaltender who won two Nattys. Shouldn’t we have another banner (or 3) for Gino, Dean, and Hak right Beside those two? We could have one banner with all their names or one for each of them. They are all deserving of a banner and a night to thank all of them together. That would be awesome.
  8. Are we going to have to look at the article on the NCHC tournament and St. Cloud game all off season like last off season when the BU game was on the front page until the new season started. Brought back horrible memories everytime I opened up siouxsports.com. Surely there is something else that can go there.

    University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    I think one thing that needs to be taken into account is the desire of a lot of the young players to play close enough to home so parents and friends can watch them play. So I think alot of our recruiting depends on the strength of the programs in western Minn, Nodak and western Canada and our ability to get the best of these kids. I know there is a certain percent of kids who will move a long ways from home, but my gut tells me the expensive private schools in hockey have a better chance of luring these kids away than UND does. Believe it or not The Ralph is not the only factor.
  10. Who are each of them playing?

    2018 NCHC Frozen Faceoff

    Well that looked more like the hockey we are used to. I thought the refs allowed a fair amount of physicality and didn’t seem to be making up the rules as they went along. Result was was consistent with our problems throughout the season. Rather than taking a step forward from the good play the past few weeks we played at about the same level. Not horrible but not enough finishers to get the job done. SCSU tic tac toe goal was remindful of our top line in 2016. Nice play nice goal. Not Cams fault I didn’t think. Was screened pretty good. Cam played great. Will he get the start today? I assume so. As the game went on I thought our passing and trust in each other went south. SCSU speed had something to do with it I suppose. Hak used to preach shorten up the passes and tighten up on pick support in these situations. Who was supporting Rieger on the game ending turnover? Last guy up the ice should not be the guy with the puck and our backward passing entry plays put us in that situation far too often. But I don’t blame the coaches for turning the D loose either. Seemed like our only chance to score at the time and get back into the game. It did result in some odd man rushes with Cam having to save the day. Ok ok I’ll shut up and go do my taxes.

    Yep. Exactly.

    2018 NCHC Frozen Faceoff

    Especially fine line with refs who have been turning the western game into a figure skating contest. The games back east are getting more physical than the NCHC.

    2018 NCHC Frozen Faceoff

    Watched our games against UNO as well as Miami v St. Cloud. The refs seem to have allowed a little more hitting in the Miami game than I have seen this year. Maybe they will put the whistles away a little, but probably not for us I suppose. I'm really pulling for the boys this weekend to put it together. They are really close if they can stay disciplined while still aggressive.
