40+ pts for Walker? If anyone, who else do you think will eclipse 30 pts?

On Gopherhole some are saying he is set on playing QB in college and Gophs are offering him based on him playing WR.

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

Who will be this years leading scorer? Also, do we have a 35 point d-man on the roster this season? Walker is the obvious answer, but maybe one of the upperclassmen makes a big jump and surprises (Reedy, McManus). Otherwise, wouldn't be surprising to see guys like McLaughlin or Ranta put up some poi...

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

Ranta needs to be better in terms of the buildup of offense at 5 on 5. He’s got a great shot and is a PP threat which is a somewhat elusive skill so he has that going for him. But at 5v5 he was kind of a drag on play last year and he needs to pick up his head more and make the right plays. Hopefull...

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

WJSS games will be televised -- good chance to get an introduction to Ryan Johnson and Jackson LaCombe. Blake McLaughlin will also be taking part. https://twitter.com/mikemorrealeNHL/status/1153305375543836672 I'm hearing some high praise for Johnson this off-season and the belief he'll make a big ...

Re: Travel

Back to work for 1 week, after 3 months of leave. So you're one of those new-agie dads who took paternity leave? Who'd a thunk? :wink: Why wouldn't I? They're giving me the benefit, would be silly not to use it. Agreed. The US system is so messed up. A newborn definitely needs to spend more than it...

Re: Gopher Football 2019

Not only that, but quite a few of the committed players are considered raw talents, so if successfully coached up, they will out perform their "rankings"

Whether or not each guy ends up on campus and makes the starting lineup, people can still get excited about the quality of players being recruited.

For some reason I really felt Bob was going to pull off the Brink flip, I guess I was wrong. Personally, I'm a little bummed on this miss.

Ryan Johnson was the one to be determined. I think there's potential one more could be added by the time the season gets going... but we shall see.
If that doesn't scream BOBBY BRINK, I don't know what does! Yeah baby!! :D :D

Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

Who will lead this team in points this year and which returning player will make the biggest jump from last year? I’ll go with Walker for points leader. And Brinkman for biggest jump, depending on how you are defining that. Hard to disagree with Walker, would be nice if some of the upperclassmen pu...
