    1...how about getting out of the regional first...

    2...what good is reloading if we don't do anything with them other than beating aic?

    If you don't reload with good talent you won't even get into the tournament.  Our program is very good at developing talent and we will be back next year.  I really believe that out of the top 4 NCHC teams anyone can beat anyone on any given night.  The teams are that close at the top of the NCHC.

    It is up to the athletes themselves whether to come back or not.

    Yes but the coach has a lot of input to the player if they are ready or not.  I thought what Monty did was selfish and self serving with Terry and the rest that stayed that year to try win a Natty.

    The players that are ready should move on to next level.  The younger players that need to should stay and develop.  We need to have room to bring in our recruits and develop them.  We have a good corps of young players for next season.  Berry is going to have decide if he brings back any seniors but I doubt they will bring any back.  You have to look at what is best for the people sometimes not just the program.  Most of the seniors even the role players may have a very good living awaiting them playing in NHL, Sweden, Switzerland etc.  Berry will do what is best for the people and the program.

    I may be different but I cringe when I see kids that are ready to take the next step to the NHL stay in a program just to try to win a championship for that program i.e. Denver when Monty didn't push his NHLers out of the nest.

    Truly incredible effort by both teams last night.  After going toe-to-toe for 2.5 games, anyone could have won it.

    Heartbreaking watching UND lose twice last night.

    Terrible feeling knowing that a 48-11-5 record the last two seasons produced one NCAA playoff win against college hockey titans, the American International Bumblebees.

    Sandy 12-1 in last 13 NCAA playoff games.  One Massachusetts team between him and Duluth's shot at a fourth straight title game.

    Had really anticipated the Fargo, North Dakota Regionals in 2015 (UND), 2017 (Duluth), 2019 (Denver), and 2021 (Duluth) to be a bigger boon for UND's frozen four chances.

    Every player has eligibility next year, right?  Unfinished business??

    The Ottawa Senators Forum is drooling over both Sanderson and Kleven.  Their feeling is Sanderson will be possibly better than Cale Makar and Kleven is going to be a shutdown defenseman with very good O zone skills.  I am pretty that next year is the last year we will see these two defenseman in a UND uniform.  

    What is the word on JBD and Pinto.  I'm guessing they will both sign very soon if they already haven't.

    Sanderson is the most mesmerizing player with the puck on his stick that I have seen in 20+ years.

    Why can't some people come to grips with the fact that you cannot win a natty every year.  We will reload and we will have Gaber, most likely Sanderson and Kleven and a host of others along with some newcomer.  It is not the end of the world. Jammer also logged a lot of minutes and comes back as a freshman next season.  The sun will rise again tomorrow and UND will still have a good hockey team.

    This team showed so much heart with their late comeback.

    It’s no use trying to reason with them. They are hell bent on blaming someone or something. It sucks, I get it but programs are going to experience ups and downs, even great ones.

    Probably not in the last 5 years. 

    Look at BU and Wisconsin who are loaded this year with high draft picks and are both done just like us.  There will be a season again next year and we will reload and return some goood players.  For soe players it is time to move on.

    The only parody is Berry trying to match strategy with Sandelin.  As for parity, maybe so, but that doesn't seem to be affecting Duluth the last 10 years in big games.  

    One and done is tough to win it all.  I think most of us knew this was going to be a tough game as did Duluth.

    Doesn't seem to be an issue Sandelin has had as much in big games.  With all of the talent UND had on this team, not making the Frozen Four is the equivalent of Alabama not making the BCS final four in football. 

    I think we are seeing more parody in college hockey.  It's tough to win 4 in a row in a one and done tourney.

    Same appears to go for the BIG although the Goof troop is yet to play.  Wisconsin had no answer for a team with a strong forecheck.

    They were saying between periods of the St Cloud game that the Beavers played a perfect game against Wisconsin and aren't likely to play that good a game again and that UMASS had another gear that it could go to.  They basically gave the Beavers zero chance against UMASS.

  14. Started Beaver thread as I know there are a lot of Beaver fans on here also.  If Bemidji plays like they did yesterday they will have a good shot to win against UMASS today at 4 PM.

    Last change is huge for this team with the depth they have. These men are highly conditioned and are used to playing games on back to back nights. UMD should be worried.

    Last change will definitely be a factor as we can match lines with the Koepke line.  Senden being out is an issue as he will not be able to be out against Koepke line.

    That’s OK, he picked against us in 2016. 
    If they played a best of seven series I think UND would be a strong favorite to win it all.  Single game elimination I still would favor them over any team but the odds of winning four straight is not real high.  Even if you had an 80% chance of winning every game you play that only gives you a 40% chance of winning four straight.  

    Doesn't Schlossman also do a coin flip?
