    Think so? Danton Cole is only in his second year. They gave garbage Anastos four and the only thing he did was somehow finish 2nd in a terrible B1G that only got the conference tournament winner into the tourney that year. They were only a game over .500. I would bet he gets another year or two, if for no other reason than MSU cares more about basketball and football to probably even notice how (below) average their hockey team is.

    Omaha Recommendations

    Omaha is still our group's favorite trip. Although that was a number of years ago before the new arena. Still would love to see the new arena someday. I can't speak to hotels because my aunt, who lives down there, let us crash at her house. If you end up in downtown/Old Market/whatever they call it, we had a blast at Dubliner Pub and Billy Frogg's. Don't remember a ton besides that but there are a ton of bars and restaurants in that area.

    Sorry to be a smarta$$ but seeing as you posted this in two places...... You could maybe check Stubhub and see what tickets are listed for on there. Just a thought......

    I like the way they play too when I've watched. Wide open, end to end hockey.

    Twins ?

    The tough part with Buxton is we've seen a couple September flashes. Is that all they were though, flashes? Flashes against some other non-contending teams trotting out some young guys trying to get big league experience? I'm too lazy to look back but I'd imagine that is part of why Buxton has looked good in September previously. Or is it more than a flash? Can he get healthy and put together a consistent defensive and offensive season? As others have noted, his defense is elite. But so far Cave seems to be a suitable defensive replacement. No, he 's no Buxton, but he's suitable, and he seems to have a little more pop offensively. I'm sure some analytics guru can tell me that's completely false, but that's just the feeling I get from watching the team for the better part of the season.

    Is that department connected to this association in any way?:

    Sounding like Dozier to the Dodgers.

    Twins ?

    Agreed on all of those things. I don't mean to point the finger at only Brian but he is the one that seems to be talking about it the most.

    Twins ?

    I've always liked Dozier, I think he's a good teammate and clubhouse guy, but hearing rumors about him not being happy with the organization for selling right now.... Try hitting over .250 on the year and maybe your team wouldn't be selling, Brian.

    That's your opinion. My opinion is that shootouts suck.

    The other problem with the NHL system, like I said earlier, is that teams get a point just for making it to OT. You see too many games where teams just shut down and play for OT to make sure they get one point.

    It depends what side of the tie you're on IMO. If your team gives up a late lead and end up in a tie it leaves you thinking your team really gave one away. If your team comes back late to even the score and escape with a tie you kind of breath a sigh of relief feeling like you really stole a point. Ties were a part of hockey for a looooooooooooooooong time. I guess I don't understand the need to have a 'winner'.
