  1. I tend to agree. I have no problem calling it a penalty. I probably wouldn't even complain too much about a 5, although that has to be about the minimum necessary for a 5, but I can't agree on the additional discipline. One of the things I observed watching the replay the night of the game, and again on this replay, is that Chrona clearly braces himself for the contact, and actually raises his left forearm across his body in sort of a blocking motion as he braces for the collision.
  2. As I recall, Gregoire and Gage Ausmus were also kids who committed elsewhere (DU?) and were very good players here.
  3. There is going to be a big push to give two auto bids to each conference.
  4. In my opinion DU's tough pod has to come with a huge asterisk, though. First, the schedule for them was brutal. Their first game was against a very good UMD team, who already had a game under their belt. Every team struggled a little, naturally, in their first game, but DU had to do it against a team that had already played. Game 2 was against the #1 team in the country, at that point, and they lost in OT. Game 3 was against a good SCSU team playing with four days rest, while DU had a really tough game the day before against UND. Those first three games were brutal, from a s
  5. There is no pairwise. You can only do the pairwise when you have interconference games.
  6. But Wodon's site also has some flaws. PwPt%, was the Pairwise percentage that was going to be applied to overtime games, for Pairwise comparisons, before all this pandemic nonsense not occurred. But Wodon is still hung up on it, and thinks that the PwPt% is what should be important for tournament selection time. But take a look at it. CHN has Bowling Green with a PwPt% of .857, for example, which includes two regulation wins over a DIII school.
  7. I think I agree with almost all of this. That was just a good college hockey game between two good teams last night. I thought we started slow, but by the second period we had taken over the game. Sometimes the bounces don't go your way, but I think Duluth is as good a team as we are likely to see this year (outside of maybe a BC team that looks really good) and Duluth certainly isn't a better team than we are. I think it'll help once it goes back to a more normal schedule and the coaching staff is able to have more practices again to tighten up some of the mistakes. There has been no
  8. I'm ok with Perunovich winning. He was a terrific player, although if I were picking a team I'd pick his teammate Samberg over him. Guch had a great year, but it wasn't a dazzling statistical year to set him apart from the other players. He was simply clutch. But as for UND snubs in the Hobey voting, he'd still fall behind Greg Johnson, Jeff Panzer and Matt Frattin in my book.
  9. For goaltenders and forwards drafted in the top ten: Goalies: One year -- Rick DiPietro (1), Three years -- Al Montoya (6) Forwards: One year -- Phil Kessel (5), Kyle Turris (3), Jack Eichel (2), Clayton Keller (7), Tyson Jost (10), Casey Mittelstadt (8), Brady Tkachuk (4), Alex Turcotte (5), Trevor Zegras (9) One and a half years -- Kyle Okposo (7) Two years -- Dany Heatley (2), Thomas Vanek (5), Jack Skille (7), Jonathan Toews (3), James van Riemsdyk (2), Colin Wilson (7) Three years -- Blake Wheeler (5) Four years -- Eric Nystrom (10)
  10. For top 10 defensemen in the last 20 years, it is sort of a mixed bag (draft position in parenthesis): One year - Noah Hanifan (5), Jacob Trouba (9), Erik Johnson (1), Ryan Suter (7) Two years - Quinn Hughes (7), Cale Makar (4), Zach Werenski (8), Brian Lee (9), Jack Johnson (3), Mike Komisarek (7) Three years -- Four years -- Ryan Whitney (5) It's possible I missed a player or two, but I think it's hard to predict whether you'll get one or two years. You almost certainly won't get three out of a top 10 pick. One thing that might be working in our favor is th
  11. I have to believe that if you are a Warroad high school hockey player, TJ Oshie and Brock Nelson are a couple of players whose names you are familiar with, so I assume that helps as well.
  12. I was bored last night so I was just messing around with CHN's pairwise tool that lets you modify game outcomes. If Canisius had swept us again this year, we'd still be #3 in the pairwise. Of course, none of us would still be around to see it.
  13. The only time I worry about what a UMD fan is saying is when they are reading my order back to me at McDonald's.
  14. St. Cloud swept Duluth in St. Cloud a couple of weeks ago. Tough at home.
