He’s a Gopher so I tend to watch him more closely, but Brady Skjei is not having a good series so far. A couple of penalties, a little slow, gets pick pocketed for chances, and doesn’t seem to be in the right spot all the time.

I thought he looked a little lost out there on a couple of shifts, but when he does things right it hardly gets noticed. He can make a difficult escape from trouble or a nifty tape-to-tape pass look pretty easy when it's not.

Well Schmidt was traded, but to the Canucks than Florida. I would say Vancouver got a steal on this one as Vegas needed to dump salary.

For those of you who get the Athletic, there is a great story about Nate Schmidt. They interview Guentzel, Budish, Haula, and many former pro teammates. They discuss his struggles his freshman year, the return of Guentzel, rooming with Haula, Bjugstad and Budish, and many other Schmidtisms. Funny read with many "f" bombs

For those who get FSN, the latest installment of Becoming Wild is with Nick Bjugstad. It is full of former Gophers including Rau, Holl, Parenteau and Scott Bjugstad.

I would have never guessed that after his career at Minnesota that Justin .6 Holl would have a substantial NHL career. He has been a solid, stay at home defenseman for Toronto. You could argue that only Brady Skjei from that 2013-14 team has done better in the NHL. Reilly still has a chance to be ok. Boyd, Rau, Fasching, Kloos, Bischoff and Lettieri really have not done much.

Holl is like a utility infielder. I would not have predicted he'd stay up in the NHL, but it's good to see him make a career of it.

Reilly will be remembered as another dominant college player that didn't translate to the NHL. He's missing something.

For those wondering where Mat Robson ended up after being released by the Wild, he is in the DEL. It's the German League and he plays for Straubing Tigers with former Duluth player Mike Connolly.

Is there a point to the Casey Middlestadt negativism, or is this a case of people predicting he'd fail just wanting to be right and then gleefully tabulating his troubles?

I felt he left college way too early, but I'm pulling for him to make it in the NHL. Hopefully, he can put enough of his game together to become a journeyman player of sorts, but I don't get the schadenfreude shtick around here when a player goes on to struggle at the next level.

As a fan of the game, I am as disappointed as the next guy when a player who comes in with hype lays an egg on the ice. I can even be accused of making an unflattering observation now and then, but overall I wish for good people to find success. There have been a lot of players here who have been savaged for nothing more than doing what the coaches asked of them and representing the program well along the way. That's a shame.

I think it’s pretty much just me at this point. There aren’t any likes for my comment. 😂 Until he bulks up and shows he can stay on the puck and score goals when he’s not on the PP there’s not much to root for other than his birthplace and year at Minnesota. I’ll add that I think he’s wasting a great talent and that annoys me.

It's one dude being a dick. Casey is merely 22 and already has 100+ games played. He needs to get better for sure but I see the potential and hope for the best for him.

Rem had 10 points ( 8 G & 2 A ) in 8 games this month. Novak had 10 points ( 2 G & 8 A) in 8 games as well this month. They are teammates for Nashville's farm team in Chicago.

Novak's skating makes him more of an AHL type. I expect something similar with Reedy.

Yeah, I don't see Reedy playing in the NHL. Ranta is the kid with the NHL skating ability, but he needs work in a lot of other areas. Other than him, I don't see any NHL forwards on the Gophers' roster...possibly Nelson with his big body, but he's a project at this point, too.

Rem had 10 points ( 8 G & 2 A ) in 8 games this month. Novak had 10 points ( 2 G & 8 A) in 8 games as well this month. They are teammates for Nashville's farm team in Chicago.

Chicago is technically a Hurricanes affiliate, but they are “borrowing” the Nashville players because their affiliate the Milwaukee Admirals chose not to play this season.

Always awesome to see former Gophers tearing it up!

Probably not a great move by Ryan.

If you were to just listen to that without seeing the video you'd think Cousins was wiping the floor with Lindgren.

If anything the fight was pretty even and nobody really got in a damaging blow.

I'd say blow for blow that wasn't that bad at all.

No real damage done there. That was strictly a undercard preliminary bout in WBA terms.

If they had that fight in a paper bag, both guys would still be trapped inside.

The Athletic did an article on the state of the Sabres. They interviewed former Sabres captains on their thoughts of the current franchise and it included this quote on CM.
Casey Mittelstadt is an example. The Sabres should have told him not to leave college after one year. A good organization looks at a kid like that, who didn’t even dominate college hockey, and refuses to rush him. There was no point. He should have stayed two more years and turned pro as a much better center. The 2017 eighth overall draft choice should be a difference maker by now. He has the talent and vision. As of today, he’s nothing.

Well that paragraph describes the CM ordeal perfectly. My goodness. The most hyped and most skilled Gopher in a decade ended up with a massively forgettable Gopher career and what is tracking toward a massively forgettable pro career.

Speculation by the family for some time now is that he had CTE. At any rate, he's lead a troubled life for some time now.

He definitely fought some demons. My wife and I saw him in the bar at the Lutsen Resort in the (I think the early to mid 90s) and even then you could tell he wasn't right then. Hell, I didn't recognize him, my buddy from Lutsen pointed him out to us. Feel bad for Pav's family as it seemed they tried hard to help him.

This is why any lawyer recommends a client doesn't defend himself. Casey doesn't come totally clean on his unwillingness to lift weights, but he convicts himself of the crime with his own testimony. My three " fans " can read their boy's words and leave me out of his failure.

"making an instant impact for the @PredsNHL, @GopherHockey alum Rem Pitlick continues to make waves on the scoresheet."
Kind of a confusing headline when he doesn't have a point in the NHL

I would love to have the U write my resume or use them as a reference. Just a bit over inflated :D

I wonder how Neil Sheehy and Paul Ostby would comment on all of this, seems like a kid who thought he had a long runway and then everything accelerated too quick. Hope Casey figures it out.

The NHL is second to the NBA on shelf life. If you come out, you had better be ready to compete immediately. Flavors don’t last a month.
