former players

Recommended Posts

Stafford adds another goal...9 goals in 5 games. Broke his streak of scoring on 6 straight shots though.

Also, Taylor Chorney with his first NHL goal on the PP tonight, also has an assist so far.

Sorry if this was stated somewhere already and I missed it, but a former player's son - Josh Archibald, has committed to Blais and UNO. Very interesting...

Omaha Flash...

Blais, besides getting Cooper, also got a commitment from Brainerds Josh Archibald, a Mr. Hockey candidate on Monday.

Since moving to CA, I have been out of the hockey loop! But, I just found out that Stockton is an hour away from me and they have an ECHL team! Can someone do some research for me (since I have to actually work today) about any former Sioux players in the ECHL and which teams they play for? I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

you think the blues wish they took toews now?? he and osh together in the blue note could have been a nice und combo

e johnson traded

That would have been AWESOME...except it's awesome to see a guy lace it up as the team captain in an Original Six city like Chicago. We should be saying, too bad the Blackhawks didn't draft Oshie....instead, they took Jack Skille (ha!) with the 7th overall pick. Obviously that was a bit high for even The Osh in terms of pre-draft rankings that year, but TJ is a man-beast who is going to become a big time player.

Hindsight is always 20/20, though. ;)

Skille was traded recently... so...

Interesting article on how the NHL salary cap has forced a number of highly paid players into the AHL, with comments by Mike Commodore.

You could field a really nice core to an NHL squad with ex-Sioux

Scoring 1: Toews centering Parise and Oshie

Scoring 2: Zajac centering Stafford and Blake

D1: Greene and Commodore

Just thinking about the ridiculous talent we've had at UND.

There are a lot of GMs who would happily take those 8 guys and build a team around them.

Well....

Commodore is available right now on waivers.

Jonathan Toews is the NHL's #1 Star of the Month for February

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=554691&cmpid=nhl-rxl-twt

Watching Toews skate circles around the wild on Monday, was amazing.

He looked better in every way than every player on the ice and the commentators seemed to agree that with Crosby out Toews was arguably the best player in the NHL right now and I say they were right.

He is the best two-way forward in the game right now, no doubt...he can score, set up, win big draws, win battles down low, never out of position defensively.

Jonny Toews just said "F THIS, I'LL DO IT MYSELF."

Captain Serious scored a pair of goals in another Hawks victory (First Star). He has a multipoint game in 5 of his last 7 games (garnering a point each of the other two), and the Blackhawks have gone 6-1 in that stretch.

This has a Fighting Sioux flavor to it...

Kovalchuk's 22nd of the season and eighth winner was set up by a great steal by Travis Zajac deep in the Tampa Bay zone. He intercepted a pass by defenceman Matt Smaby in the right circle and found Kovalchuk between the circles for a snap shot that he launched falling to the ice.

Zajac w/ 2/3 of a Gordie Howe hat trick tonight ... 1 goal and 1 fighting major...just missed out on getting the assist as he was on the ice for Kovalchuk's OT game winner. He would have had the 3rd assist I believe.

Toews also continues his tear as he scores the first goal in the Blackhawks game v Carolina.

Like RedFrog said, Toews scored a goal, but was only the third star of the game. Not to be outdone, former Sioux and current Blackhawks teammate Ryan Johnson, also had a goal, and earned SECOND star honors. Toews who? :p

DaveK can have Crosby.

I'll take Toews. Seriously, I know Crosby is injured but there is NO ONE playing better than Toews right now.
