kr Posted May 14, 2003 Share Posted May 14, 2003 CB was on the radio with Mike @ KNOX this morning. Re: Hockey Camps -- if your child(ren) doesn't have an application in by now probably unable to get in -- you can try by calling Cheryl Gilbertson at the hockey office 777-3103 -- hockey camp is a great time, but it is a big responsibility -- 24 hour supervision -- days run 8am to 9/10 pm -- every Sunday the staff has a big meeting to run through the upcoming week. Joking back and forth about CB being the son of a Marine ... CB said his brother is the scary one in the family, very intimidating (was a Marine in VietNam 69/70..) -- for those unfamiliar, Mike is a Marine so he brings up the Marine connection quite a bit. Caller: What is the goalie situation? Still in the air - Nate Z. is here now -- Phil L. is back at Central finishing up school and will be back in the USHL next year. Caller: What about Brady Murray? Going to world junior camp for Canada (he has dual citizenship US/Canada) -- won't go into expectations -- puts too much pressure on kids in addition to NCAA regulations dictate what information can be released regarding recruits. Mike: I'm not a fan of NCAA -- conversation turned to the Myron Allen situation for a little bit. E-mail question: Any "Travis Roche's" next year? 6'4" Smaby will be a physical presence and Robbie Bina is in the hallway. Mike: Bina is pound for pound the toughest football player he'd ever seen -- hits like a ton of bricks -- played d-back ..... CB: we have skilled d-men that'll have another year under the belt. In our league a Keith Ballard is the model of that type of player. Playoffs: obviously, tonight is a must win for the wild -- the ducks goalie has been too good for the wild to come back from a 0-3 series (barring a total melt-down from Gig...) The wild would be helped if they could pick up one more superstar to compliment Marion G., either an offensive or a defensive star -- a Pronger type on d would help a lot. Hoping that MN surges back tonight -- the inability to score on the ducks goalie gets to be an emothional/mental burden -- the goalie is seeing everything right now -- they'll have to try to get a constant presence in front of him -- they need to get nasty -- regarding tonight's game -- could see MN outshooting ducks 12-6 in the first, they'll come out hard, but remember ducks have played 5 fewer games, plus MN has used a lot of emotion to dig themselves out of 2 series -- emotion can take you a long, long way, however, it is very wearing, and as mentioned the goalie is in the zone and 5 less games in the playoffs is a big advantage for the ducks. NJ and Ott. -- what a battle. Right now, would probably go with NJ taking the cup -- but they play the game for a reason, so we'll see. E-mail: what about Curtis Murphy? One of the best but the size is a constant battle -- he's like a 5'8" d-man -- Roche is a 6'1" -- look at Vancouver, very physical d-men, large -- Travis should get a good look at the NHL next year ***** this is not a verbatim transcript -- I took license with is typed above -- no direct quotes -- I don't mean to put words in anyone's mouth -- take it for what it's worth.....
