  1. For his development and my enjoyment, I'm glad he's here this year, but he definitely could be a full-time NHLer this year. Reminds me of Oshie's third year and Vanek's second in that regard.
  2. jk


    No it's not. Yeah it is. No it's not. Yeah it is. Now we can skip all those posts.
  3. Not sure they squandered it. 2020 didn't even give them a chance to squander, and in 2021 fate conspired to give their lower ranked opponent a bye while they played a late game the night before. But it was their window, for sure.
  4. We have never seen a college team with that kind of talent, though. Four of the top five overall picks in one draft, plus other guys. Truly unprecedented. It will be the ultimate test of 19 year old supertalent against 23 year old workers and late bloomers.
  5. Wow, that could really change things.
  6. Looking back. It's shocking and a bit criminal that UND did not win a title with Toews and Oshie. I think the D and G were deficient. I want to not look back at Sanderson the same way. It's possible the F and G will be deficient this year, although maybe the portal will help there. Sanderson is that kind of player. Anything I say will put the expectations too high, but he was seriously dominant at the end of the year. At 18. At D. Imagine this year, stronger, more experienced. He could tower over the league. Looking back again, we seriously had a team with Zajac, Oshie and Spirko on a line, and Stafford, Toews and Duncan on another.
  7. The Morrow move hurts, perhaps more for future years than next year.
  8. Would love that and I see it as possible. Driscoll has to be good, and I think they'll have the league's best player in Sanderson, at a position where he can heavily influence play.
  9. For next year anyway, they're pretty easy picks to finish top 3 in the NCHC. Yikes, the league is going to be a nightmare. DU and Omaha perhaps challenging UND for fourth, with Miami and CC trailing. As someone mentioned, nonconference games will be even more important than usual.
  10. It will be interesting to watch Sanderson and Power next year, especially if Power goes 1OA this year in the NHL draft. Different draft years, but Sanderson is only four months older. That might be the hobey race.
  11. This gets to the heart of how I think UND's tournament preparation suffered from the NCHC schedule. 2021 weekends against UMD, SCSU and WMU would have hurt the team's record but stiffened its spine. Playing CC and Omaha, with a diminished DU sprinkled in, did them no favors. Two clarifying points. 1. UND was still very good, played well against UMD, and deserved a better fate that morning. 2. I don't blame the NCHC, as organizations had to choose the path they thought best in an unusual time.
  12. Congrats to JBD. Thanks for the terrific career at UND.
  13. That's funny, because some folks here were ready after three also, even though one was a national title.
  14. Frisch made one terrible mistake and had probably a hundred other efficient plays last night. As I saw it.
  15. Right after Sanderson hit the post.
  16. They didn't quit, unlike half the f***ers on this board.
  17. This has been a weird game.
  18. Didn't you just describe exactly what happened?
  19. Didn't the husky d have possession after the offside? I thought that nullified it.
  20. Totally understandable, but Mismash looks like he's wearing cement skates.
  21. Interesting to see a big line with Mismash joining Pinto and Caulfield, and a speedy line with Gaber, Kawaguchi and Adams.
  22. Kinda makes you wonder, since UMD is like BSU on steroids.
  23. Agreed. This was not score the first goal and hang on.
  24. I have a coworker with a son at UMich (just a student) and the son called today with news he had covid. So maybe it's going around campus.
  25. You are correct. I was like bluto, on a roll.
