Re: Committed Recruits Update Thread

Im not sure if this is the correct place for this, but what would you guys/gals put the odds at for Walker, McLaughlin, and Ranta returning next season? Ranta* is the only NHL player of the three, IMO, but NHL projection never seems to stop players from leaving after their junior season. *That said...

Ranta finally learning he'll get better chances using his big body in front of the net instead of highlight goals off the rush.

Re: #4 Gophers @ #5 Michigan -- Dec 8 & 9

Just think if Walker and McLaughlin could get going. Just a bit off but close. 27 had a couple great chances and was stuffed. Hopefully the get it fired up soon. McLaughlin has been terrific so far this season. One thing to remember is that this line is usually playing the opponent's 1-2 line. So f...

Re: #4 Gophers @ #5 Michigan -- Dec 8 & 9

Gophers obviously missing their skill defensemen. Oof. Looks like they're playing the dump and chase strategy, which is probably okay given that the Rossini, Fish and Stucker can't move the puck like the other guys. The game looks a little fast for Fish right now. If the Gophers are going to win thi...

Re: #4 Gophers @ #5 Michigan -- Dec 8 & 9

I’m seeing a different team than last year. Players are maturing and are better, true, but they aren’t making some of the mistakes that were really hurting them. Improvement is a lot of little things but this team is so much better this year. I see it on defense, and strong offense with the ability...

I think Nelson is the right guy... McLaughlin Walker Nelson Ranta Reedy Mcmanus Sorenson Myers Brodzinski Burke Munson Perbix Nevers I made a comment to a friend this past weekend that I'd like to see Nelson play up for a few shifts. He's big and strong and skates well for his size. Anxious to see ...

Re: Vikings 2020 season

Second game in a row Vikings basically handed two touch downs to a garbage team (in addition, yesterday they took one away from themselves); second game in a row they played a team more adept at losing than they are.

Re: NCAA Hockey 2020-2021 Season

What is the outlook on having an NCAA Tournament/Frozen Four this year? There is no outlook right now.... We just have zero idea what is going happen. I think the only idea we've gotten out of Motzko is that there are frequent coach phone calls happening and while the PairWise Rankings have been ac...

Really like the "compete" level so far this season. This group seems to work very hard every shift all four lines, fun to watch. SKi U MAH!
Yes, astute observation. This team is like a bunch of thoroughbreds let loose from the barn after a prolonged rain. Lots of energy.

Re: Gophers vs Buckeyes Nov 23 & 24

Michigan will be a big test. It appears they are similar to the gophers in that their young players are talented, and they move the puck with speed. It seems strange to say, but I felt that in all four games so far the Gophers weren't finishing great and at times were overrunning their headlights, w...

Re: Gophers vs Buckeyes Nov 23 & 24

The Faber kid is as advertised. He's smooth as graphite and quickly erases any scoring chance by an opponent. I think he gets penciled in every night. :) Probably have to go back to Erik Johnson in terms of this level of play at both ends of the rink from a freshman d-man. Come on, I teed it up for...

Re: Vikings 2020 season

So Cousins has to give his team the lead in the 4th quarter how many times this year in order for them to have a winning record? It wasn't his fault the Vikings had a ridiculous amount of penalties (some good, some bad), he hit Jefferson in the hands for an obvious 1st down, I believe he hit Thiele...

Re: Gophers vs Penn St. Nov 19 & 20 --- Let's get year 100 started

Players like Sorenson and Nelson are playing lines 3-4 on this team, and those guys are very, very good hockey players. Faber and Koster are already composed and appear well ahead of almost any freshman defenseman in my memory. I'd have to go back to maybe Keith Ballard as a kid who came in looking ...

Re: Gopher Football 2020 Season

On the overhead replay it looked like a brief stiff arm to gain separation...at about the 3 yard line.

Gophers have no chance to make a run with this terrible defense. What happened, are they missing players?
