2020-21 University of North Dakota Hockey Season


Recommended Posts

These guys have high end tools, but they have a great deal of poise for being so young and playing a position that typically takes longer to master at this level.  In past years, even with good teams, our conservative break-out schemes have resulted in a fair amount of frustration.  This D squad is so calm back there and makes a lot of good choices.  And not always just chipping it up the wall to a winger who has someone all over him.

I don't think I have ever told this story here, but this seems like a good time. It was June, 2016. My brother asked Brad to come to my mom's house with the national championship trophy. My mom didn't

Bubbs is such good people its ridiculous.  Bringing the students pizza before the games, talking to people on the street that others wouldn't give 10 seconds of their time too, taking the time to talk

Love how Leipsic's penchant for cocaine/MDMA use is the buried story here.  Hope it was just him and not the other members of that group . . . . Also, funny how "locker room" talk gets you booted

Five of the six could play in the NHL.  Love Bast to death, but probably a minor league career.  (Would love to eat crow on that prediction).  
 

Absolutely controlled the last series. No wonder the Mavericks seemed frustrated at the end of it...

How about goaltending? Scheel or Johnson? Who do you think is better? 

Scheel. 

Johnson put up some incredible stats (4 SHO in a row) and was instrumental during the championship run.  But I also remember him getting yanked during some head scratching performances like when he only saved 10 of 13 shots against Jan Brady; 8 of 11 against Colorado College; or 1 of 4 against Western Michigan during the same season.

Funny thing about that 2016 season was that Cam was the question mark.  With the makeup of the d core and the CBS line, if they hadn't made a deep run and faltered somewhere it likely would have been due to the goaltending and we all would have pointed at Zane leaving as the reason they didn't hang #8.

Instead, the first two shots of the season went in, and the rest is history! ;)

Until Scheel wins an NCAA banner gotta go with Johnson.

It's tempting to just conclude that championship winners are better, but I don't think we can be that simplistic.   IMO, Archie Manning was a better QB than a bunch of those who won SBs.

Agreed, my order lately goes Zane > Scheel > Cam(sunject to change), shot suppression of the 16 team was incredible
