  1. According to Jason Hajdu, Chay has signed with the Minnesota Wild. Good luck to the captain!
  2. Just read on areavoices that Hennessey is not and will not be in St. Paul for this weekend due to health concerns. Best wishes Tim, we are all hoping everything is alright, and you have a speedy recovery.

    UMD fans

    Just throwing in my take: all teams have obnoxious fans. Because of the overall number of Sioux fans, we have more obnoxious fans that most - if not all - teams in college hockey. Lets not start threads bashing every other school's fans because their threads about our fans could and would be a lot longer, containing terrible stories of drunken idiots. Having said that, go Sioux.
  4. Here is the link to the National Marrow Donor Program
  5. These guys are a good team. The game they played against CC was very impressive. They played a balanced game where they brought it for 60 minutes. The only thing I am hoping for is this: TV timeouts don't hurt the Sioux's depth. Michigan's top 2 lines are solid, but beyond that, they cannot compete with our 3rd and 4th lines. If TV timeouts stretch the game, they will be able to rest their top 2 lines and keep them out as long as possible. If the game is close after 2 periods, the Sioux's depth and balance will bury Michigan in the 3rd. In their press conference following the CC win, someone said ( think senior defenseman-turned-forward Scooter Vaughn) this team (Michigan) is going to do something special. Bury them early and give them no hope. Get at Hunwick early and leave no doubt as to who is the best team on Thursday night.
  6. If you are referring to the KFAN/Kristo thread, yes I did. My initial post made clear that I didn't want to start a "lets bash-someone" thread. I tried to lock it so no one could comment on it, but couldn't. If you have a problem with me taking that down, you are welcome to your opinion.
  7. I understand the point of the post; I was just presenting a counter-argument. For the record, I agree with you; I would take Hak over any coach in the nation.
  8. The obvious thing that was ignored is the most important stat: national championships. Lets hope that all changes in 10 days
  9. This could be done with a picture of UMD's logo, but it would be funnier if it were Goldy: Picture of Goldy with caption: Minnesota: Land of 10,000 Excuses
  10. Not to be a stickler, but if you are going to offer "advice" it is wise to spell names correctly. It is FRATTIN (with an "I") not FRATTEN (win an "E"). Otherwise, fair assessment
  11. Have a hockey tournament Saturday
  12. I was just going to post this as well. They also seem like a special bunch of guys. Makes us all remember how much we take for granted

    To clarify any confusion, I think most of his selections are crazy

    Schlossman and Hajdu make good points via Twitter: whether or not you agree with a certain voter's ballot (in this case Ciskie), you have to give them props for posting it for all to read (and rip). Having said that, Ciskie seems to have his UMD googles on when making his selections. To each their own, gotta love democracy.

    Agreed that Mac is one of our best defensemen, but 0-6-6 is not All-WCHA material. Don't get me wrong, I love having him on our team; he is a beast. Greatest flight risk aside from Gregoire though? Hardly.

    Thats a good point on Hauser. But you are strengthening my argument. Clearly you don't think Hauser was 1st team material, right? Well Hauser's GAA his last season at UMTC was 2.40. Thats not too far north of Patterson's 2.31. And since you don't think Dell's SV% is worthy of 1st-Team honors; you can't think Patterson's GAA of 2.31 is worthy?

    I agree with everything you said. Well put

    Leads the league in GAA, Win %, and has played the 2nd most minutes of any goalie in the league. Although minutes played isn't the best measuring stick, it has some relevance. If Dell doesn't have the year he had, UND doesn't win the WCHA regular season. To say there is "no way Dell should be first team" is a bit premature. The argument is debatable (obviously); not as clearcut as you make it seem.

  23. Although the Sioux women deserve to be in this year's tournament, they had a great season and have added a lot to their fan base this year. Next year should be great (judging by the recruits they have coming in - if they can clear the NCAA's clearinghouse) with their returning players. Great season ladies!
