NORTH DAKOTA @ Bulldogs - SATURDAY Gameday

Recommended Posts

A bunch of solid, but not great, players, that will all stay 3-4 years = mediocrity for a couple years.

I’ll find Gwazdecky’s phone number. Sandelin might be persuaded. And Cary Eaves does a helluva job wherever he goes. 

Additionally, there’s a guy named Blais who is available!

Your best PKer has to be your goalie. Cam probably would like one back from both nights but when you're inept on your own PP and can't defend WF Sheyenne's PP Cam isn't your biggest issue special teams wise.

We have to move on from this current group. Berry kicked out with an extraordinary group that Hak put together and took the bit out of their mouth. We know by now that he can’t even begin to recognize, recruit, or coach that talent level.

What's your hot take on the government shutdown?

The live chat said Cam was really laboring during the TV timeouts. I’m wondering if he’s healthy at this point, but Thome is injured too, so this is where we are at. 

Also, I’m not sure about tonight but Friday night blocked shots were UMD 22, UND 6. Not good enough.

I’m watching the DU game on tv and they have zone entries that are simply a work of art. UND seems to come through neutral ice too slowly whereas teams like Denver attack attack attack. Granted, this is against a not very good Omaha team but DU consistently has great zone entry. So glad I didn’t buy a ticket and drive all the way up to Maggot Arena to watch them get what will likely be their second consecutive shut out.

Steve Johnson should be offered a coaching spot.  He’d be a great fit.

When the PK was really good earlier this year we got clears most of the time on the 1st opportunity sometimes 2nd. Lately a lot of the clear attempts have looked more like passes to the other teams D man and we rarely clear on the 1st chance. Teams also are having a much easier time on entries seems like guys just aren't making good decisions on when/where to pressure in the neutral zone.

Maybe earlier in the season we were masking our deficiencies against lesser teams and now that we’re in the meat of conference play against some really tough competition, our deficiencies are more glaring.

Nursing a 3 goal lead with 12 minutes to go, D man Adam Plant hustles out to the point and just went down and blocked an Omaha slap shot. That’s what I remember UND hockey from two seasons ago.

Maybe, but even thinking back to Denver I know they had like 5 PP goals on the weekend but the PK was much tougher in those areas. Same with St. Cloud they usually have a very good PP and they were 1/8 on the weekend and really had trouble on entries.

It’s shutdown and I’m pretty sure Berry had something to do with it!

Yep. All true and has been for several weeks. No improvement shown. Gets worse every week. We mad the Bulldog PP look like it belonged to a Stanley Cup winning team.

Maybe and maybe not.  UMD PP is definitely not on par with a Stanley Cup team. UMD may have had a great game (they probably did, and it may continue - who knows)  No improvement shown on our part? True.

After we won it all less than two years ago and showcased our fans, our program,  and our top line who all went to the NHL I thought the number of Blue Chippers wanting to come here would increase - we had a well deserved reputation as the place to go to get NHL ready.  Now, less than two years later we get this?  What is going on with Berry ? What is his recruiting strategy?  What is the special teams strategy other than milling about?  One of the worst efforts I have seen.  And to think Minnesota Duluth thinks they own us.  I am so frustrated I it will take two more whiskeys before I go to bed.

The only current players recruited by Berry off the top of my head are Nick Jones and Jordan Kawaguchi. Jost was also Berry recruit. It’s going to take a couple years before we see Berry’s recruits on campus. A lot of next year’s freshmen are also Hakstol recruits. Hakstol never won the big game, but he got the most out of his players, our 2014 and 2015 teams did not have a lot of high end skill, but they made the Frozen Four. I think in 2 years we’ll know if recruiting has tailed off.
