  1. Cole Smith making his NHL debut, playing for Nashville Predators on the 4th line.  Rocco Grimaldi playing on the 3rd line for the Preds....pretty awesome that Smith made it to the NHL, congrats!

  2. I'm sure Wilkie would've prob started the last two years if he stuck around, we could've used his right handed shot.  Like many said, it takes some players a few years to adjust to the college game.  Look at our Juniors this year, prob the biggest reason for this year turnaround.

    First 40 was fine. We won the first half of both the first and second, IMO. Wheels fell off in the third as we got desperate and out of position. I believe in the team and the skill we have. I believe we'll see a good bounce back. 

    I agree, it was looking really good til that shorty and the momentum changed and we didn't have an answer and the goal at the end of the second was a back breaker.

  4. I think Thome gets the start and if the Sioux keeps it simple=north/south game, I like our chances to keep it close..lol.  The boys just got outworked and maybe outcoached last night, but a couple saves/plays, last night the Sioux could've had a different outcome I believe...it will be fun/interesting to see how the Sioux respond tonight.

    ? Simmonson was absolutely terrible on defense.  He played 4 years at und and had 6 goals.... he will go down as one of the worst players to ever pass though the program

    Wilkie played half his freshman season and had 5 goals. He had size and actually played defense so i have no idea why your trying to make !@#$ up

    Simmonson was terrible on defense...really?  He was a 4th line centerman that also played on the penalty kill...I don't think you through player that plays "absolutely terrible" defense on the penalty kill.  Simmonson and Wilkie are two different players that were brought in to play different roles.  Wilkie played in 62 games for the Sioux and scored 6 goals.  Wilkie is a right winger and Simonnson played center.  Wilkie was brought in to be a goal scorer, Simmonson was not.  It sucked that Wilkie left because we could've used him the last two years but I do believe he left also to play with his brother at CC.  Which that didn't pan out because he's not there yet...maybe next year.  I think Judd will see the ice more more, I thought he has played well so far.  Also Simmonson played on the Championship team as the 4th line centerman, so I don't think he'll go down as one of the worst.
