  • Location
    Denver, CO
  • Interests
    Two loves in my life: Fighting Sioux Hockey and Metal.

    I'm a '95 graduate of Colorado College. I bleed green and black so my 2nd favorite team after the Sioux is Colorado College.

    I also play guitar. I love anything loud with lot's of distortion-Pantera, George Lynch, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Metallica, Megadeth, Disturbed, etc. As my username indicates, I'm a huge fan of the Boston-area band Godsmack. Devil Horns to the Sky!

    The last Husky logo looked as if it were drawn by a third grader.

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    The Schwartz brothers were recruited by UND but ended up committing to CC because they were one of the first schools to show interest. As happy as I was to have them at CC can you imagine those UND teams in 2011 and 2012 with them on it? That would’ve been sweet.

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d say there’s a hint of sarcasm here, no?

    Has anyone here been to a game at Arizona State’s arena? I’m contemplating going there in December for the series against CC. I hear it’s a pretty small arena.

    Yah, no a days, schools have two sets of nets-one set for practice and pre-game warmups and another set for the actual games. You should see the crappy nets we use in my Monument, CO league-you can hardly tell that the posts are supposed to be red and the netting looks like it’s ready to fall off.

    DU has named Senior Colin Staub as their captain, replacing the recently departed Logan O’Connor who signed with the Colorado Avalanche. Jarid Lukosevicius, Tyson McLellan, and Ian Mitchell are the alternate captains. Staub is getting positive feedback from DU fans. He’s not a guy with a lot of fanfare. He played in the NAHL and has increased his production each of his first three seasons with the Pios but hasn’t put up eye-popping numbers. However, most captains tend to be leadership guys who lead but example, not necessarily judged by how many pucks they fill the net with. Reminds me of a recent UND captain, Steph Pattyn.

    We don’t yet know how or why the administration came up with 3,000 as the magic number. However, given my knowledge and experience with the school, it doesn’t surprise me that they’re willing to basically throw away additional revenue by building it too small given theyve drawn well over 4,000 these past few seasons when the team has been down (over 6,000 for many years when they were good). I’ve reached out to one of the beat writers to see if he knows why and/or if CC plans on disclosing how they decided on 3,000.

    Please, NO PARTICIPATION BANNERS! We’ve been the butt of jokes by DU fans for years because of all those stupid participation banners hanging in World Arena. Hopefully they don’t hang those in the new barn.

    Nothing has been formally announced but the word among insiders is, it’s going to be around 3,000 seats. As a season ticket holder, this sucks. Even at their worst the previous recent seasons, they were easily getting over 4,000 per game. I can see it now-they’ll build a fancy new on campus barn and then jack up the ticket prices for those of us who stuck with the team during their down years. If that happens, we’ll simply drop our season tickets and become AF season ticket holders instead and then just buy individual game tickets for series against North Dakota (assuming there will be available GA tickets to be had).

    I’m betting that CC’s new arena will be an NHL size sheet especially given the fact that capacity is rumored to only be around 3,000-3,500.
