  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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".
  4. 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.

  6. 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 go
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. The Luke goal was given to Gardner. with the tip.
  10. Last year Thompson, LaDue, Poolman, all had offers to go pro. I am expecting Thompson and LaDue to be gone for sure. I think Ausmus stays along with freshmen Shaw and Wolanin. The question marks are Stecher and Poolman. I'm hoping Poolman stays to play with his brother similar to Jordan Schmaltz. I have no idea on Stecher. I see Nick Schmaltz leaving for sure. Boeser is a question mark. Usually freshman forwards come in and need to get stronger like Nick did last year. But Brock is already there. I can see him going pro after one year but hope he learns from Toews and Parise and stays for
  11. We used to gather also at the small bar in Carrabas near the arena .
  12. The first half of the season is going to be brutal. 20 games before Christmas of which 13 are on the road. We start with 6 non-conference games, 5 on the road. Then play the Number 11 (Miami- at home) , Number 17 (St Cloud- away), Number 5 (Denver- at home) and Number 2 (Duluth- away). Throw in away games at CC and Michigan State and home games against Wisconsin and you have an extremely tough schedule. Along with a new coach, new goalie, and 10 freshmen what are the odds we come out of the first 20 games above .500? Being realistic, I'm expecting us to be at a 9-11 record before Jan. 1. With
  13. Speaking of Blais. Omaha was about the worst prepared team I've seen in the Frozen Four in many years. They did not come to play and were overwhelmed. Blais did a horrible job preparing that team for the big stage. They never even put up a challenge.
  14. I'm a little tired hearing about how the Fargo regional is a home game for North Dakota. It is not in their home arena so no it is not a home game. It is a neutral site which the NCAA wanted. To have the arena completely fill with North Dakota fans shows how well they follow the team. Fargo is 75 miles from Grand Forks. In comparison: Manchester is 53 miles from Boston (home game for BU?) Providence is 51 miles from Boston home game for BC against Denver? Having these teams travel less than an hour away for regionals is one of the main reasons that they make the Frozen Four so often.
