With $12.5 tickets....people should be able to drive to the games this weekend, with the heat on, in their cars.

What do you guys think would happen to us in the polls if we split this weekend? I'm worried our boys may have partied too much over break lol!!!

The polls don't mean anything.... but the rpi in the pairwise would take a hit. Two must wins!

It would be a setback, but not a season killer like last year. Our records too good. Of course it depends on what they do the rest of the season. I don't see this team collapsing.

Can we get Pinto back for tomorrow night at this point?  

I said in the WJC thread that I think we could see him Saturday, but that's a haul. Played a lot of games in a short span and has come back from Europe.

Likely not as I imagine he will be on a long flight back home tonight. / tomorrow and jet lag will affect him. Maybe Saturday.

He can sleep on the plane!  He’d be playing two more games if the Finns hadn’t gotten in the way!  
 

good ol boys should charter him a jet get him here faster and well rested!

If the boys don’t sweep this weekend, the mimosa treatment is given to Huntsville by the boys and their girlfriends!

Pretty simple on Pinto. Give him a choice. If he wants to sit out Friday and play Saturday. If neither, UND will be just fine beating UAH.

Rest isn't a bad thing. However, he'll miss out on some stats probably. Team first though.

I think the coaches usually will error on the side of giving the player a little more rest if it isn't a critical series.

In a way it is a critical series though but I get what you mean. We shouldn't need him, the problem is we won't know until the game starts... and then it's too late! :lol:

UND is 14-1-2, #1team in the Nation.  UAH is 1-14-3, #60 (dead last) team in the nation. 

UND has outscored their opponents 71-27.  UAH has been outscored 77-31.

I think we will manage without Pinto.  Give him the weekend off.

I get what you are saying, but people were saying the same thing about the Patriots against the Dolphins last week.  When everybody thinks it's an easy win, sometimes the players do to.

Not just that.  It is rare for any team to go through the season without dropping a game or games to teams that do not have much chance on paper.   Hockey is not unique in that, but with the average game's score being pretty low in any case, an off night, some pipes and bounces, and a hot goalie, anything can (and does) happen on any given night, even if the players are not looking past the opponent.    This team seems pretty good in that area.  In addition to more talent, the leadership of this group must be better.

So y'all are volunteering a guy to:

  • play a 10AM (local) game,
  • get on a flight (if he can get a flight),
  • fly 1/3 of the way around the world, 
  • and play a game at 7PM (local) the next day*. 

I wouldn't sign off on that plan.  

 

*His body clock is still in the old time zone. So 7PM local would be after midnight to him.
