Today? 

I'd take 2016. That team had been in that spot. Ran the gamut of playoff games. Plus, the CBS line was just flat-out unstoppable. 

2021 has yet to play in the tournament. With that said, they showed me a lot the past two games. 

Fun conversation.

Agreed. Let's revisit after the season!

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

Definitely. In 20 years when his NHL career is over, I think we'll look back at Jake Sanderson as one of the best players that have ever come through our program.

Great question. He is unreal.

I hope he stays for one more year to round off his offensive game. His skating is elite. He's very good defensively. The one item he is missing is the offensive part. I believe he can put up 30 pts next season if he can improve on that. He gets plenty of chances now, so he is close to popping off.

He's got 14 points after missing nearly the entire pod for the WJC and is a point per game player in the second half. Jake has PLENTY of offense lol. Incredible hands and vision. Hard shot. Insane moves. 

If he stays, I think he's NCHC player of the year next season and a Hobey hat trick finalist. Kid is absolutely elite. 

Just out of curiosity, what about my post did you not like? Hahaha very curious. Do you not think Jake has plenty of offense? 

I can see why someone may think he's not gonna win the POY or be a Hobey finalist, I just am really impressed with him.

Don’t forget 2016 had some pretty good depth as well.  That ‘Heavy’ line from 2016 was tough to play against.

That line should live in the lore of UND history like the Hrkac Circus, the Money Line, DOT, Pony Express, CBS.  They didn't blow people off the scoreboard, but my gosh were they an absolute shut down for whomever got to play against them.  Having to deal with Pogo, Johnson, and Rhett all game would require the post game ice bath.    

The way they played against Michigan's CCM line (All in the NHL at the moment) was epic.  Absolutely owned a 1st, 2nd, and 4th round pick that had put up over 190 points that season.

Totally agree. Yeah, I don't think 2021's depth is way better, it's just that I feel like the scoring is a bit more spread out. Super close.

I think he needs more work before he goes pro. I'm thinking 4 more games this year and 3 more years would be just about right.:whistling:

Ok let's reframe it: Who would you pick to win in a theoretical matchup between them (assume full health)? - My gut says 2016 but I think there's a lot of nostalgia talking there.

 

2016

Best defense to date, offense could score.
Didn't have too many team lapses through out the season.

Between football and hockey, this is a really fun spring to be a UND fan!

A win against the Bison should move UND to #1. The BC loss last night moves UND back to #1.

When is the last time both hockey and football were ranked #1 teams?

Yep, I'd put them in the same class as the Calder, Henderson, Ulmer line, the best "checking" line in UND history in my book.  I loved seeing Calder trash talking Goldie the mascot before overtime at the Final Five.  RIP.

Yes. Same with JBD.

Expect them in the lineup.

I'd take JBD at 80% and in the third pair just to have him available on the PP. 

I'm worried that Mismash has been away too long and isn't in game speed/shape. I wonder how they'll work a lineup to bring him back in. With no Senden, we need Mismash back for roster configuration.

You youngin's ...

I remember the game where they put Archibald-Jensen-Dub out together. 

I'd have rather kicked Satan's dog with him watching than play against that.

I have to mention Fabian, Canady and Massen.  Two seniors whose careers probably didn't follow the paths they expected got together with Fabian and completely changed the complexion of every game in the 2005 NCAA tournament.  An incredibly shorthanded team wore out every opponent because these guys, together with the bruisingest defensive core, were so tough.

Dress him as the extra skater? Adjust ice time as needed.

Yeah, fall of 03 was my freshman year. Which is why I wasn’t sure. I was a gopher fan back then and didn’t care about D2 football. Then my eyes were opened!

You did not want to be on the ice late in the game on a Friday night when you had the game in hand when Archie was out there.
