Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

I don’t always like taking the “I’m just happy to be here” approach but after the past 14 months I really will be just happy to be there. To be at Mariucci watching my favorite team play live sounds about as good as it gets right now.

Re: Potential Future Recruits - Part II

So admittedly I only watched the highlights of the U18 USA vs Finland game but Strammel looked like he was involved on the majority of the goals for the US, including getting one himself. I feel like he’s a guy you go for if there is even the slightest room in our long list of recruited forwards

Re: #4 Gopher @ Ohio State Jan 29 & 30

Good weekend and a big six points, since bucky also got six. The next four games will tell the tale if the guys will finish first or not. Omaha and UND had quite a crowd last night. It's too bad we can't attend in person this coming weekend. They could put 50 to 75 people spaced out in each section...

Re: #4 Gopher @ Ohio State Jan 29 & 30

Wally and Frank were really impressed with the entire team and their play as a whole. Said on more than one occasion that this might be one of their most complete games so far this season. I'm inclined to agree. Let's do it again tomorrow!

Re: GPL Podcast & Live Broadcasts

Shameless plug.... But I highly recommend watching the GPL Podcast on YouTube when we are live. Tonight you would have had an hour and 20 minutes of overtime with our guest Paul Caponigri. That was after the regular podcast that was an hour by itself. Sometimes OT is just a few minutes. But other t...

Re: NCAA Hockey 2020-2021 Season

With no fans, the locations really don't matter and the venue really gets nothing out of it. I'd condense to 2 super regionals for sure. Create a bubble. With games on offsetting days (Fri / Sat / Sun) it seems very doable. I think that would be a good plan for the NCAA regionals anyway, with the a...

Re: 2020-2021 Schedule

What do you miss most from not being able to attend the Gophers hockey games? For me it's the anticipation before the game. Single serve pizza, Insomnia cookies, the walk to the arena, getting there early, mint chocolate chip ice cream, cheering after Gopher goals. It's hard to just pick one thing....

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

I saw someone on Facebook pushing to let fans in for the Wisconsin series in two weeks. Obviously we'd all love to see fans at Mariucci for what would surely be an exciting series but with this UK variant taking off and Michigan putting a two week pause on athletics I just don't see that happening. ...

Re: #4 Gophers vs Arizona St-- Round 2 -- Jan 21 & 22

After playing two different series against the Sun Devils what do people think of the possibility of them joining the Big Ten? We've seen them play everyone else, correct? Regionally, academically and hockey wise would they be the right fit?

Sorenson out, Nevers in. Moe gets the start
Is Sorenson injured or are we just trying something different?

Re: #4 Gophers vs Arizona St-- Round 2 -- Jan 21 & 22

My hopes for tonight-- Come out with the same intensity as last night. Give Moe the start. That Ryan Johnson gets his 1st career goal. Nelson, Brodzinski and Perbix get some puck luck. Give Rossini a game. I'm a little surprised Ryan Johnson hasn't scored a goal yet. Just with out good he can be in...

Re: 2020-2021 Gopher Hockey Season Thread - Year 100 of Pride On Ice

On the podcast last night Jup, Vegoe and Drew talked briefly about a limited number of fans potentially being allowed into Mariucci at some point this season. I've been pretty optimistic that there is a chance that might happen but with a month and a half left who knows. I know it's pretty much a wa...

Re: #1 Gophers vs Notre Dame (Jan. 15 & 16)

Glad to see they didn't quit, but when it looked like they were getting frustrated for stretches I saw far too many individual efforts in the 2nd and 3rd for my liking. Team is in a flux right now. Good news is there is plenty of season left and I am sure they will figure it out in the next few wee...

Re: #1 Gophers vs Notre Dame (Jan. 15 & 16)

Probably won't be #1 in the country after this weekend They've done nothing to retain it. ND limps in here with a sub 500 record, among the worst power play and PK numbers in college hockey, and a goalie with some pretty sad sack metrics. And nothing Minnesota does seems to matter. The Irish are sc...

Re: #1 Gophers vs Notre Dame (Jan. 15 & 16)

I was wondering if this might happen. This is not to sound doom and gloom. This team is really good and I think we'll be just fine. But I did wonder if after a stellar first 8 games in 2020 the rest of the conference might start to catch on, at least a little bit, to what the gophers are doing and e...

Love getting to this point in the week, even during these uncertain times. The anticipation of the rivalry series being just a day away. I obviously love that we're doing well and glad (for rivalry sake) that Wisconsin is looking better. I thought Todd Milewski's story last night of the badger playe...

Re: #1 Gophers @ #12 BADgers (Jan 9 - 10)

Setting the TV conversation aside for a brief moment. What are people's predictions for how this weekend plays out? Both teams obviously getting some serious talent back from the WJC. Wisconsin looks decent from the very little I've seen of them. Unfortunately I think this weekend might be where th...
