  1. We just need to beat Northern Colorado and then we can start talking playoffs. Scary game with Studsrud hurt and most likely out for that game. Typical shoulder injury recovery time is three weeks so I'm expecting Studsrud to sit this weekend and hopefully healthy enough to play in two weeks. At least the team has the entire week to prepare Heidlbaugh (did you notice I didn't say Bartles) to be the QB at Northern Colorado. We'll need our defense to come up big and our offensive line to play well so we can run the ball. So win in NC and we're in the playoffs. Then we can start scoreboard watching. PS. I'm hoping Cal Poly beats EW so we have a shot at an outright Big Sky title.
  2. I am assuming you are being sarcastic since we beat them 31-24 on Oct. 1. I'm guessing they are ranking Cal Poly higher than us since they have wins at SDSU and beat Montana at home. We need to continue to win and hope for a EW loss. PS. I hope our administration have been reading what they need to do to submit a bid for the games: http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/2016D1MFB_BID - Checklist and Info_20161017.pdf SDSU has their new stadium and I'm sure they will be bidding a lot to play a playoff game at home.
  3. I have two tickets for sale for the North Dakota vs. Boston College game at Madison Square Garden On Dec. 3rd for sale. They are located in the North Dakota part of the Arena. They are in Section 118, Row 15, Seats 5-6. I bought them on Ticketmaster so with fees they cost $133. I'm willing to take $115 each since that was the original price without the Ticketmaster fees. http://www1.ticketmaster.com/college-hockey-showdown-north-dakota-v-new-york-new-york-12-03-2016/event/3B00503395CA0F17?artistid=821823&majorcatid=10004&minorcatid=9&fg=sim&f_display_landing_popup=true&f_sessioncam=1&ab=m_efeat3707v1desktop We planned to go but now can't make it work out. If you take them you will be sitting by four of our friends that are Sioux fans. I live in Fargo and have season tickets to hockey so I could make an exchange of tickets for cash in Grand Forks or Fargo between now and Dec. PS. I want to sell to North Dakota fans only. Private message me if interested.
  4. Guy's who I expect we'll see improve a lot from last year are Chris Wilkie and Joel Janatuinen. We need both of them to take that next step forward. Wilkie came in pretty highly touted and led the USHL in shots on goal the year before he came in. I think the game was just a little too fast for him last year mainly how quickly he was covered when trying to shoot. I'm expecting him to put up very good numbers this year with 10-15 goals. Janatuinen had moments that really showed his skill but was not really strong enough to excel. I think we'll see him much stronger, not so easily pushed off the puck, and make major advancements his Sophomore year. I'm expecting 8-10 goals this year.
  5. Buccigross must not remember that we lost three defensemen including our top pair when he says "good D". How our defensemen gel together is my number one concern going into this season. I know it will be hard to replace Schmaltz and Caggiula but if we have a steady defense and a good goalie you usually have a chance to win games.
  6. The one I remember was Kevin Maxwell leaving after his freshman year to play with the Canadian National Team in prep for the 1980 Olympics. Back before pros were let into the Olympics, Canada and the US had Olympic teams that played all year together before the Olympics. They'd played exhibition games against colleges and usually kick the crap out of them. Ed Belfour only played one year. Hrkac played two but he took a year off in between to play with Canadian National team.
  7. With Stecher leaving I thought I'd throw out my predictions: I hate to see Cam Johnson leave but he is undrafted and he may not get a better chance. Goalies take so long to develop that he could spend 5-6 years in the minors and still never get a sniff. I think he stays. I expect Thompson to leave. I think his development stalled this year and he probably needs to go someplace else. I expect Schmaltz to go. He needed this year to get stronger and he did. I hope Poolman decides to stay to play with his brother. Best case scenario we lose 4 senior forwards, one junior forward (LJ), 2-3 junior defensemen (Stecher, LaDue, Thompson) That leaves us with: Poolman: Junior Ausmus: Senior Chratrand: Sophomore Shaw: Sophomore Wolanin: Sophomore Colton Poolman: Freshman Gabe Bast: Freshman Casey Johnson: Freshman Goalies: The same as this year Forwards: Caggiula, Chyzyk, St Clair, Sanderson, Johnson gone Schmaltz: Junior Simonson: Junior Olson: Junior Poganski: Junior Boeser: Sophomore Gardner: Sophomore Gersich: Sophomore Wilkie: Sophomore Janatuinen: Sophomore Gornall: Sophomore Coming in: In age order (All of these guys are about 6 ft 185 pounds. Zach Yon: 59 games: 38 points (USHL) 21 yrs old Cole Smith: 54 games- 61 points (NAHL) 21 yrs old Dixon Bowen: 47 games- 22 points (BCHL) 21 yrs old Ludvig Hoff: 56 games - 57 points (USHL) 20 yrs old Tyson Jost: 48 games - 104 points (BCHL) 18 yrs old If Schmaltz leaves: Nicholas Jones: 42 games - 63 points. ( he left Ohio State, eligible second semester (BCHL) 20 yrs old
  8. We will have three in Tampa. Staying at the Marriott Waterside. Sitting in section 124 Row P. We had flights, tickets, and hotel rooms back in January. This will be our 12th Frozen Four. Make sure you get to Channelside for drinks, food and live music. Assuming it's nice they will have a band playing the center courtyard. It's easy walking distance from the Arena.
  9. After listening to Barry Melrose calling the first BC game it felt like Barry wanted to get down to the ice as soon as he could so he could start making out with the BC forwards. Gees he is such a East Coast homer. He knows nothing about College Hockey and barely knows the player names. Terrible announcer for College Hockey.
  10. Not sure what all the bitching is about. This is the exact thing that happened last year at our request, Team gets more rest for a possible Saturday night game but also once again gets more experience playing an afternoon game like it probably does in the regionals. So take Friday off, drive to the cities in the morning and go to the 4:00 PM game. Here's hoping that this year is not like last where we got the experience of playing TWO afternoon games
  11. I posted this under the North Dakota Season thread but it probably belongs here: Just read a story that Jimmy Vesey a senior hockey player from Harvard wrote about his time in college: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/jimmy-vesey-harvard-hockey/ Great read!! I hope our underclassmen read the story and realize the NHL will always be there and their time in college is finite. They can enjoy developing their game while having the time of their lives with the "boys".
  12. Especially when part of their criteria for the brackets isn't even if they are in the PWR but instead currently lead their league, aka Minnesota at 17 in the PWR.

  14. I hate to talk about players leaving while the season is still going on. Let's try to enjoy these guys as much as we can. That being said Ladue is gone, Thompson is gone (they wanted him last year. His improvement has slowed this year even though he has an excuse since he is the one that gets the freshman D rotating with him every other game), Schmaltz is gone even though I think he needs one more year of development to make it right away in the bigs. Poolman stays to play with his brother. Stecher will get many offers and it could go either way. The pressing question is Boeser gone too? I cannot remember a player that left after his freshman year except Kevin Maxwell but Kevin left to join the Canadian National Team from 1979-1980. Back in those days there were no pros so you played with the national team an entire year before the Olympics. I think Boeser is actually ready for the pros physically. Who knows.?
  15. You cannot make the NCAA tournament using the Pairwise rankings if you are under .500. However if you win the league tournament you are in no matter what your record is.
  16. No big deal either way. I just happened to see the scoring change on USCHO last night right after the game. They still have it as Gardner but I just checked CHN and they have Johnson with the goal too. So I'm out.
  17. The Luke goal was given to Gardner. with the tip.
