Trust me when I say the new position has no chance of being the replacement for Schloss, it's entry-level. If anything, I'd guess Miller would jump in if Schloss decided to leave. There's an interview where Schloss said he has a great setup at the GF Herald but there'd be a few opportunities he'd be hard pressed to turn down.  One of those being covering the Wild for the Star Tribune.

I figured it would be very entry level. 

But the reality is Schloss has established a body of work that vastly outpaces the potential of the Herald.... little Forum..... and their ability to compensate I'd think

UND is unbelievably lucky to have him and quite honestly its priceless in exposure.

I'm not sure the NHL scene would be as open and accessible but he would do quite well I believe. The program would be at a great loss to lose him. And its almost an insult to compare to the capabilties of Wells.... it feels disingenuous to even use the word "capabilities" and "Wells" in the same post.

Since it's being talked about Schloss has had many inquiries from NHL and did interview for I believe the Strib job last year when Russo left.

Didn't the Herald send Miller with Schloss to most road trips a couple years ago?

If anyone’s planning on doing the UND @ Canisius College trip, let me know and I can put you in touch with the guy who handles ticket sales. He can hook you up directly, bypassing Ticketmaster and saving you a bunch of dough on fees. Tickets are super cheap! I just got mine for the weekend series.

Looks like you can stay at the hotel next to the arena.

I was looking at nchc.tv in order to renew, and while CBS Sports hasn't announced which games are on their network, there are a conspicuous amount of Friday games not listed. It's a safe bet those are the games they are broadcasting.

By far, my favorite road series of the season....the electricity and intensity in the air at Magness Arena is really high. Pio fans don’t like the sea of green that shows up but I guess my response to that would be, perhaps the Denver community ought to support the DU hockey program a little bit better and get off their couches and get on over to the arena.

Agreed that they dislike us.  I've been to this series for the past few years and every time I just a little uneasy about it.  You never know what you are going to get with Denver and it is always a hard fought series.  The Denver fans tend to be tolerable but not overly nice.  It is definitely intense.  Just need my friends/coworkers to decide how many actually want to come with.  (oh and if only I knew my days off in Feb... lol)

Considering I park my car near the DU campus with CC license plates and a big “North Dakota hockey” sticker, and nothing’s ever happened, they’re not bad fans. Knock on wood...

Hello all, I wrote this evaluating the NHL potential of some UND players this season. Feel free to read and give me some feedback. Happy hockey season! https://seamoresports.com/2018/09/13/nhl-pyramid-und-fighting-hawks-2018-2019/

This is great. Living a long way from GF I really appreciate it and hope to see more. 

Do you or anyone have an opinion on who on this squad has the quickest burst and who is the fastest end to end skater?  How fast over-all is this year’s team? 

GM’s keep saying the game has changed and speed is a priority more than ever. The league gets younger and faster every year. 

Guys like McDavid and Stamkos have sick speed but Brayden Point’s jump wins games as well. Just wondering we will look regarding and speed and acceleration

DU fans can’t handle sitting by me. They remind me of the stuck up kids in high school who act like they’re better than you.

Reading this I am wondering if the recent lack of scoring reflect the fact that Berry is a defenceman and the program is reflecting a defense first mantra?  Not saying this is a bad thing, just an observation / thought.

And Berry's predecessor was a dynamic, gifted, natural-born sniper offensively?  :D

For the record ...

Berry
1983-84    32    2      7      9       8                         
1984-85    40    4    26    30    26                         
1985-86    40    6    29    35    26     

Hakstol
1989-90    44    4    16    20    76                         
1990-91    42    3      9    12    63                         
1991-92    21    3    11    14    52

very true, perhaps our defensive mindset is more long legged than I surmised,  is it October yet :)

I always end up next to the overweight loudmouth who can't stand up without spilling half his beer on me. Just sayin.

Chad Demers is a local kid from Grafton-Park River who went on to have a very successful career at the Air Force Academy. A go fund me page has been set up. 

Sorry-I meant to post this on the Non-UND Hockey thread but I’ll leave this posted here as well as post something over there as well.

Sorry to waste everyone’s time reading this but wanted to point out the fallacies and just all-around lack of effort taken in the writers’ “research.” And I don’t say this because of where they’re predicting my two teams-UND and CC-to finish but the factual inaccuracies (i.e., CC not having a 30 point scorer on their roster....hello? Nick Halloran???) or their analysis of UND playing a dump and chase system (yes, they played a slower style last season but that was a function of the team’s lack of skill players and finishers) and their analysis of them versus St. Cloud.

I would have critiqued it more seriously, but then read the byline.  Author is a student at the University of Arizona.   Say no more.
