  1. I continue to be amazed at the skill of the Skeet shooters. Four seconds after sunrise, these guys have bagged their limit and heading home.
  2. Seems like they favored some familiar Hakstol recruiting traits: * Building from the defense out ... Their D corps is pretty darn good. Giordano, Larsson ... even Soucy who was easy to hate when at UMD. All very solid. * Two way forwards. * Character guys, who were Captains (1 at the NHL level) and others in Juniors or college. * Late bloomers, because you can get those guys for an affordable price. I liked a lot of those picks ... perhaps the non-selection of Stecher was a way to avoid the appearance of favoring ex-UND players (which was a criticism at Philly). Dunn and Gourde were picks that I like among the scheme of guys that haven't had a chance to play a starring role. The draft on Friday - Saturday will fill in the blanks. They may get that #1 or #2 center in the draft.
  3. The more I think about the RMU situation, I think it’s a desperate high pressure fundraising ploy. From a university President who seems not to care about the turmoil he created. cynical viewpoint I know.
  4. That IS a fun game to play. A large base of alumni with a few fanatical about success will now have the chance to buy trophies (much like Big Money buying Premier League soccer titles). I will go with where the money is: USC, UNLV, Miami (FL), U-Texas. Fanaticism is harder to predict: Let's just say the entire SEC. PS which hockey programs might have a large base of alumni with a few fanatical about success?
  5. TLDR: Hakstol could screw Philadelphia by not helping them out of their salary cap problems. Fabulous clickbait, awful just really dreadful writing and (lack of) clear thinking.
  6. US Supreme Court rules in favor of athletes in NIL dispute: https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/31679946/supreme-court-sides-former-players-dispute-ncaa-compensation
  7. I'd have been better just doing a team of all the former UND players.
  8. I'm interested to see if https://fightinghawks.com/news/2021/5/14/mens-hockey-twelve-und-alums-to-compete-for-lord-stanleys-cup.aspx updates that graphic.
  9. McDavid (EDM) Draisatl (EDM) Backstrom (WAS) Oshie (WAS) Rantanen (COL) McKinnon (COL) Barrie (EDM) Nurse (EDM) Carlson (WAS) Makar (COL)
  10. Easy to like Tampa at 28 to 1 or so, and the Capitals at 11-1.
  11. Christian Wolanin named to the Team USA roster for the upcoming World Championships. https://teamusa.usahockey.com/2021mwcroster
  12. Odd fact of the day: Alabama-Huntsville was 3rd in the nation in attendance per game in 2020-2021. https://www.collegehockeynews.com/almanac/attendance.php UND - of course! - was #1. Again.
  13. Stat of the game: Sam Houston 14-0 at home all time in FCS playoffs.
