  1. So, this popped up in my Facebook Memories today. This was the view 5 years ago for everyone walking out past the Bobby Orr statue in Boston:
  2. It's going to be tight. The shutdown line finds their offence and UND wins 3-2. Senden and Smith both get on the score sheet and KawaHobey pots at least one.
  3. Warm weather destinations are best, IMHO. Virtually everyone is traveling to get to the FF, so distance isn't an issue for many of the attendees (plus, most come from cold weather areas). You might miss out on some local bumps like Notre Dame provided in Chicago for their 1 game, but a big chunk of the crowd shows up whether their school is there or not. My ranking the last five locations (we attend every year) Tampa - it's not close. This was such a good location that it wins even though I got food poisoning the first night in town. St. Paul - breaks my "warm weather' preference, but the city really puts out the welcome mat for the crowd Boston - weather was crap for part of the tourney, but the history and number of things to do is great. Also, you can get everywhere using all public transport without needing rental cars, uber, etc. Chicago - the arena sucks and there was nothing to do immediately surrounding it, but the city itself has a lot to offer Buffalo - I may skip another FF held there. The arena was fine, but the rest of the town left so much to be desired. Probably the least fun I've had at a FF.
  4. With the new CCHA, I'm really curious what will happen to the two Alaska schools and UAH. All 3 are outliers for travel and now without a conference. Also, with lack of competitiveness/money/attendance in recent history, they're not going to have conferences banging on their doors with invites to join. Drop to DIII? Drop the program all together? If there's been news on this, I've missed it...
  5. *checks calendar* Hmmm, Feb 14, 2020, home vs. Denver. Denver, I hate Denver the most.
  6. Gonna be onehelluva weekend! Take care of business in our home barn. 4-3 OT and 3-1, with a TCoS on Saturday night!
  7. I just read this article on Saturday afternoon. Wife and I were at Judy's prior to Saturday's game and there was a customer wearing an old Frenchy's jacket, looked to be from the 1980's. Prompted us to look up what happened to that place and the mugs. Seeing it brought up again today is quite the coincidence!
  8. Anyone figured out which CBS app to stream Friday on? Some say they're not compatible with my devices and others don't appear they'll have the game. I'd appreciate the help
  9. Good to see our team has arrived at the arena. Too bad it wasn't until 10-12 minutes into the game
  10. So far we look slow and flat. PP to change the tides... Horrible start.
  11. Please don't give up the early goal this game! Get out front and let the 3rd line grind. 3-2 UND, Smith, Senden, and Adams.
  12. I'd likely go. Had an absolute blast at the Wild outdoor game in the football stadium a couple years ago, and would want to support my team in Msp. I still don't get putting so many of these in baseball stadiums where the shape doesn't lend itself to sight lines, but the NHL does it often.
  13. I agree. Maybe make him the extra skater on Saturday so he can get some minutes back with the boys, but not play top 6 minutes? Key to Friday is just to jump on UAH early - they'll have some wonder-struck players coming into a rink the size of the Ralph with all the people (hopefully) in attendance. Grab a quick goal or three, and just put them away.
  14. The U17 and U18 both participate in the USHL season. The U17 plays the USHL games when the U18 is playing exhibitions. The U17 team doesn't tend to fair too well over the course of the season, especially early, as they're just too young. Playing together for one year at 16-17 yo is tough to win when you're playing teams with a lot of 18-20 yo and some of the players are on their second or third season together.
  15. Staying with my pick going into the weekend = the Captain
  16. Addressing McMahan only, as he played for the Fargo Force before Mankato and I knew someone close to him. Shane moved to Mankato the summer after juniors, but did not suit up at least the first season. He did not play elsewhere. Reasoning would be speculation on my part, so I won't do it. A similar thing happened with Colton St. Clair with our team. Got to school, only to find out the NCAA had disallowed one of his on-line classes for credit and he ended up practicing/working out a whole additional year before playing with the team.
  17. Finding a plane on Thanksgiving weekend isn't rocket science, but it may be harder than getting to space...
