This will free up our staff to work the regionals again

not sure why we are so arrogant that we need to bid on the retinal every year

The Ralph out bids everyone thinking we will be there with our fans. Lose enough $ and The Ralph will eventually waggle their tail home.

As long as Berry is the head coach UND should not bid on regionals.  Just a complete waste of time.

So the last two years we will have not made the NCAA tournament, killed the streak of hosting first round of the NCHC conference playoff, will now kill the streak of making the Final Faceoff. Yeah, Berry has done a bang up job alright. He is running this program right into the ground. 

You forgot Canisius.....

It’s so frustrating when other teams are doing more with less.

Berry is so enamured with local players he cdnt cut poor players when everybody can see they aren’t D1 caliber but keep running around with the emperors new clothes on.this just fucking sucks.

You effin nailed it buddy.  And right now I hear Tim Hennessey apologizing again for lack of scoring, basically saying bad puck luck ("no bounces").  This team's lack of ability at finishing/scoring is so inept they can't even buy a greasy goal. 

Sounds like it, like I said I only saw a handful of games so couldn't get a good read on the offense, but I did watch the first CC game a couple weeks ago and UND skated circles around CC and just looked like they controlled the game but only had a few shots that were really quality, most were chest-shots from the blue line. Felt like that was a game they should have won but maybe that's been the norm lately, if so no wonder everybody's at wits end.

What is the relationship that Barry has with the kids

respect him, listen to him or just ignore him?

i just don’t see passion in theses players

Our attack is absolutely pathetic.  That is NOT UND hockey!

Weeeeel,.....it is UND hockey for these last 2 seasons.  For the last 20 years or so, no.

Well, "funeral" might be an apt description.  Seriously, if we play like we did tonight and Den plays like they did tonight (uhhhh, minus us not scoring and them scoring 2 goals...) I like our chances of taking game 2.

The Black sweaters are done, the magic sucubused away by thebemblems of embarrassment on the shoulders.

 

Wear them tomorrow for the funeral prosession, end the misery, then never wear the black again.

Officially retire them.

Spot on. It's one of two things or a combo-platter; either we are judging poorly in our recruiting or when players arrive here they are not developing as players.  And I'm talking strictly offensive (forwards) players, defense and goal keeping aren't really the issue.

Our passing skills are pretty poor.  The passing in the offensive zone is way too slow for a team that lacks snipers.  By the time the player gets his shot off the goalie is in perfect position to make the easy save if the puck is on net.   The goalie must love it every time they pass the puck from up high to the goalies right side.  Pretty much no chance of scoring based on the speed of the pass and how long it takes the player to shoot. 

Very frustrating team to watch.  Doesn’t seem to be any offensive development since the season started.

Any clue as to what the Minn ST-Mankato coach makes?  I would hope we could double his salary, couldn't we or is he getting big bucks down there?  I realize they play in the weaker WCHA but he has them in top 10 or maybe even top 5 in the Pairwise in a college town similar in size to GF with no real hockey tradition of any pedigree and yet competing with ST Clown, Duluth, and U Minn.  Plus, he was the recent US coach in the junior (under 18?) world championships this past winter.  Some hockey experts must recognize he's got coaching talent, hey?

I’ve said it numerous times, ND where good players come to become mediocre. But let’s keep the local boys playing , Johnson is one of our best fowards.

Should have done this immediately after the 2nd goal or right at the start of the 3rd. A real coach would have
