  1. Check this out: http://www.startribune.com/stories/503/5079645.html Hobey Baker after one month of the season?
  2.

  3. I agree about Genoway. Just think. This guy came to UND as a 17 year old. Because he had played 3 games in juniors he had to miss a year of college hockey. So he is now a senior and he still is not old enough to have a beer. He is just starting to come into his own as a hockey player. One fault he may have is he likes to pass so much that sometime he passes rather than shoots. That worked well last year when he played with a guy like bochenski who could bury the puck but this year we seem to be missing that sniper. But I think Genoway will only get better this year and even the next 2-3 ye
  4. Mike Burgraff? The player that I thought did so much with not the greatest talent was Mike Burgraff. He didn't have the best skills but made up for it by going 100 miles an hour at all times, playing with tenacity, and always giving his best. He was the nicest guy off the ice and on the ice he was a major pain in the butt for the other team.

  6. When I looked at our early schedule before the season started my first thought was that I would be happy if we were sitting at .500 after the Wisconsin series. We are now 5-3-2 and look who we have played so far: Maine away: Picked as a top 2 team before season started. (won 2) Mankato away: Mankato always gives us fits (3 points) Minnesota at home: In top 10 and toughest rival (split) BC away: in top 3 (loss) Northeastern away: beat Michigan earlier (tie) Colorado College at home: undefeated and picked to finish in top 3 of WCHA( split) So we've played 10 games and 6 have been away
  7. Where are the Gopher players? Not good enough this year? It's also nice that Stafford may not miss a UND game because of this comittment. Pretty nice to not schedule any games during the Juniors.
  8. I posted this at USCHO. Thought it belonged here too. Random thoughts after this weekend 1. Sioux forwards look like they've never played defense before. Can someone say backcheck. Heck can someone say forecheck. 2. Sioux defensemen looked like they were afraid to touch anyone on Saturday and continue to have a tough time with the breakout pass. 3. Ryan Potulny is a stud. 4. The young Minnesota defense didn't look like freshman. I kept wondering who this Peltier guy was. 5. Tallackson's tip-in to start the second game was a great deflection. 6. Briggs looked much better than I r
  9. Rivalry? I just know when we play Minnesota I want to beat them worse than any other team. I'm guessing this comes from heated games in the past but also from the many condescending conversations I had with Gopher hockey fans when I lived in the Twin Cities. Back then it was always the "Yeah but we have all Minnesota players" and "yeah but you have 25 year-old canadians." In general it was simply that UND was second class in comparison to the Gophers. That's why it pained me so much to see them win back-to-back championships. For me I like beating the Gophers more than anyone else. M

    REA Clubs

    The way they had it a couple of years ago, only those Fighting Sioux Club memebers that were at the Coaches or above could get into the bars before games but all FSC members could get in after the game started. This pissed off a lot of Century, Captain, and Varsity level FSC members. Most of these guys bought 2 season tickets the first year and then decided they'd like a couple more. But since they can't get any more seats why increase your FSC memberships. Heck the only time I frequented the bar was after the game to let the traffic clear out. I hope they at least open it up afterwards.
  11. When I started looking at these guys I couldn't figure out who the centermen would be this year. Then I realized that Zajac and Kaip were centers. So here's how I think they will start out and then adjust as the year goes on: Genoway centering Bochenski and Murray McMahon centering Stafford and Fylling Zajac centering Porter and Prpich Kaip centering Spirko and Fabian That leave Massen (Sr.), Cannady (Sr.), Marvin (jr) sitting in the stands. With this team being so senior laden they definitely need to work in 2 of the 3 new forwards at least. I think you'll see a lot of juggli
  12. From the St Paul Pioneer Press:
  13. Mike Burgraff: The nicest guy off the nice but on the ice was questionable. Always hustled, usually on the penalty kill, and whenever the whistle blew you had to find him if he was on the ice because he usualy did something. A fan favorite from the 70's.
  14. After Fargo just voted down non-smoking in restaurants it reminded me of my Boston Experience. We hit almost every bar between Fanueil Hall and the Fleet Center at one time or another and also ate at various places. The coolest thing was that even after doing this I could actually wear the same pair of jeans the next day because they don't allow smoking in public faciltiies. Talk about nice! But now I'm back in Fargo and there is only one bar in town that doesn't allow smoking. I guess I'll just have to eat and drink at home more often. In general Boston was a great city. Everything was
  15. At a recent Sioux Booster luncheon Dean Blais spoke on this topic. He mentioned that half of the recent additions to the hockey program did not have an ACT score of 21 or highter. But he also said that for example one player came in with an ACT score of 19 and now had a GPA of 3.8. Plus all of these players had GPas over 3.0. Blais's concern is that he'll miss out on players because of a higher standard than what some other schools may have. With the athletic department's commitment to academics (leading the conference with number of athlethes named to the all whateve academic team) I thi
  16. Saviano over Bochenski? I don't think so.

  18. I'll be there. Taking the charter out of Fargo.
  19. My first thought was : Holy smokes that's a killer October. With games at Maine, Northeastern, Boston College and Mankato in October and a home series against Minnesota we could be lucky to be .500 after October. Ohter thoughts: - For the second time in two years we don't play Minnesota twice. That's just plain stupid for the WCHA especially if they are so concerned about money. - Much more balanced with home and away series just about every other weekend in the WCHA. - Just think, two years ago we'd never heard of Canisius and now we'll be playing them for the 3rd time in 3 years. W
  20. All I know is that after UND wins on Friday afternoon and we go have some beers, that the 6 Gopher fans that sit in front of us will not be happy we had the extra time to prime ourselves to root for the Bulldogs.
  21. I'm sure that whatever happens the PWR will figure out a way with the bonus points to make sure that the top West teams will be in the same bracket so that they can once again be assured that there is an eastern team in the NCAA Final game. So that means if UND stays at Number 1 and Duluth is a Nmber 1 seed that they'll do the bonus to make sure Duluth is the 4th Number 1 seed so if we both make it to Boston we'd have to play each other in the semis. Damn eastern bias
  22. I was just going to say the same thing. There are plenty of seats and the roads are good. Drive up there Jerseychaser1!
  23. I will definitely make sure to say hi. When we first started going in 1988 we always got together with 2 Gopher fans and 2 Duluth fans between every period. It was a tradition that the UND and Duluth fans gave the Gopher fans crap constantly and vice versa. The only consensus that we all had in those years is we hated Wisconsin. Since then people have drifted and even passed away, and we go with a different group now (all UND fans). We're also headed to Boston for the Frozen Four. So if Duluth makes it to Boston we'll be rooting for you guys. Except of course if you're playing the
  24. Friday: Same lines as last week with Brandt in goal. If we win Friday, Parise in goal, Palmo plays and then who knows. He could rest Parise, Bochenski, etc. No sense getting them hurt. If we lose Friday: Parise in goal, Palmo plays instead of Fabian and everyone else is the same. We're going to win Friday so except for Parise in goal and Palmiscino playing Saturday who knows.
  25. We have six seats in section 116 row 10 right on the aisle between sections 116 and 115. I've had tickets since the inception of the WCHA Final Four in St. Paul in 1988.
