Dumb question - why not one of the myriad of players from the transfer portal?
You might be onto something there.

Re: Got Beer?

I talked to the local Oskar Blues rep once at a festival in 2019 and he was frustrated with trying to keep going in this market. I'm guessing it's tough for them outside Ten Fidy to be somthing people seek out. We're blessed right now with so many options. Support what you love.

Re: Committed Recruits Update Thread

How up to date is the recruits page, including the "Players to Watch?" It was updated at the start of the year -- just took off Boltmann/Ratzlaff from commits and Flemming from players to watch. I recently looked at USHL targets and the uncommitted players didn't flash for me to add to the list of ...

GWG and an assist for Kurth today against the U-18 team... https://twitter.com/USHL/status/1340432169534144513 He's the same birth year as the U18 team, show them what they're missing. Not always a great fit for guys like that to play USNTDP as they won't get the same ice time or special teams oppo...

Motzko said on his radio show that he's giving his guys their winter break right now for 11 to 12 days. He doesn't have a schedule yet like he was hoping, but will bring the team back so they have Christmas together as a team. He thinks that because they've only played eight games so far, that they ...

I just like that game times are reasonable. I don’t like the 9am game when I’m trying to find a stream at work because NHL network doesn’t stream.
I think you can get it via Sling.

Re: Gopher Football 2020 Season

BTW thought this was funny...

"I do believe that unless you're inside the college football, or maybe a basketball, locker room or facility right now," Fleck said, "I don't think anybody has any idea how hard this is, honestly."

Apparently hockey players don't find it hard.

He was at a few Zoom sessions early. But nothing recent.

Is there a site that has time on ice for college games? Will be interested with the TOI for the defensemen after tonights game. The only thing I've seen with TOI ( as well as "Shifts" and "Shifts / Game" ) is ESPN's season summaries for the NHL . . . . And, without being at the games in person, the...

They're three deep... North Dakota, Duluth and Denver... nothing has changed. :mrgreen:
