    Yep. Our defensemen need to do a better job of moving puck and get us some quality shots. Painstaking to watch sometimes.

    Nicely said. Kawaguchi had the look of someone about to break out.

    Yep, either of those would have sealed it. Also turned it over on the shorty iirc

    I’m still seeing that breakaway pass to Gardner and he took the long shot without a single deke. Routine save. Counts as a shot though

    NCHC.tv “Gardner out of gas” on the clean breakaway. Too tired to make one move? Seems unlikely but that’s what it looked like.

    Time to Fire Brad Berry?

    Practicality would be to give Berry the rest of the year then make decisions. Firing, hiring, new coach having a staff poached and ready to recruit, and reassuring current recruits takes time to shape. If Berry can explain to the powers that be what is going on and a feasible plan to fix it then he should be ok. Just saying ‘puck-luck’ works for the general public but he likely knows what the real problem is. My question is more talent and scheme related. The NHL is quickly becoming the TB Lightning—pass, move, pass, move—forcing the D to make constant decisions until they make a bad one. We see that with VGN and the Jets This requires faster, more athletic players with stick skills, it’s the present and future and the NHL is quickly changing to a different type of athlete. (Iirc the Blue Jackets’ 1st rounder is a kid with blazing speed who is still very raw) Are our players fast enough and athletic enough with the stick skills for that scheme? Is that a legit winning scheme in the NCAA, and how would you describe Berry’s scheme?

    Filling the Ralph

    Good ideas Seems people no longer enjoy the moment because they are too busy doing a selfie or taking video of the moment. Would be nice if the school took filling the REA serious enough to form a group to gather ideas and implement them. It’s not rocket science, just care enough to try things.

    If UND accepts parity as an option then we are in trouble. It doesn’t need to be that way. Winning at the college level is directly correlated to what the fans and administration will accept and what they are willing to pay for. I have no idea what kind of donor money comes into our program so maybe it isn’t an issue. Maybe our AD, coaches, and captains have let this team go soft mentally and physically. Does anyone here have 2 million to bring Hak back? I’m tapped out right now.

    I think parity was more about Big 10 money raising the bar for Ohio State, PSU etc, not so much North Dakota getting swept by a tiny commuter college in downtown Buffalo

    It’s head-shaking. UND 26-0-0 vs the AHA prior to this weekend.

    We aren’t good. Something is wrong at a core level. Berry tossed out a cliche post game about the problem being a slow start. That’s like saying, ‘we just need to put the puck in the net’, ‘we just need to get the PP going’, ‘we just to play better’, ‘we just......’ Sounds like coach-speak from a coach that either doesn’t have a clue what’s wrong or doesn’t want to admit there are serious issues. Whatever the problem is, it goes much deeper than cliches. I don’t know what is wrong; crappy year-around conditioning, leadership, talent, bad coaching, lazy culture from staff thru players, nobody cares, recruiting from the wrong pool, don’t play angry, budget, beer? I’m clueless—but it feels like it’s not going to get fixed without a serious look in the mirror.

    Do they arrest students just for having been drinking, or only for taking alcohol into the arena?

    Filling the Ralph

    Filling the Ralph is critical for many reasons: culture, recruiting, financials, prestige, bragging rights, player retention, identity, etc. Not least of of all, just plain fun for everyone: students, ticket holders, the team, our fans everywhere, visiting teams and fans, and the guy at home with a TV. Reasons and solutions are multiple, but the bottom line is it’s up to the school to decide if it’s important or not. If it’s important then the school needs to put someone in charge who will take the job seriously and who will involve everyone possible and entertain every idea. Involve the administration, student groups, sanctioned and club sports, boosters, the team, coaches, charities, awareness programs, churches, restaurants, bars, primary schools, high school athletics, anyone with leadership or organizational skills, the state, the city, and every reasonable facet of the community. There is no point in blaming someone or social change, the problems and answers are a mixed bag and a gray area. It’s really about solutions, many of which can have unexpected positive secondary effects There are experiments everywhere that have worked and haven’t worked so the wheel doesn’t need to be entirely reinvented. We just need someone with drive and initiative holding the wheel So there are untold number of ideas that can be put to the test. Someone creative who cares, with leadership and connectivity skills should be to be given a clear directive and let’s see what happens. Honestly, if it’s a money or bureaucratic issue you’d be surprised the number of passionate people, including people who might read this board, with a history of uniting and successfully organizing other projects who would work for free, or for expenses. (I’ll throw in a small idea of my own: have one or more drop off points in town to donate, and possibly tax deduct, unused tickets that can be given away in any number of creative ways. That’s a lot easier and feels better that trying to sell them before the game, and much better than letting them go unused) So here’s to doing good things, getting involved, passion, fun, winning, reasonable prices, full cups, full seats, not being a jerk when someone needs to get out of the row ;), seeing the big picture, above all being kind, and lots of pucks in the net. Thanks SP for the free cyber ink and Happy Healthy New Year to all.
