Cullen, Kessel, Blueger, and now Bjugstad. The Minnesota roots are strong in Pittsburgh.
Hey....there's that one guy...you know...his Dad coached at someplace that is loosely related to this website... :confused2:
And I even went to see the cup in Woodbury when Jake brought it back here. I’m getting older by the day it seems.

I bet Bjugstad is over joyed to get out of the dumpster fire known as the Florida Panthers. I really hope he can stay healthy and show the promise he had while here. From all the things I've read and seen through the years, he really seems like a great guy and was a fan favorite in Florida.

I took a geology class, obviously with a lot of athletes, the table of hockey players (guys like Haula, Matson, Schmidt, etc) was VERY reserved, and didn't talk to anyone who wasn't a hockey player. Bjugstad was the exception though, he was the only one who would sit elsewhere and talk to us "normals" :lol:

Super cool dude, I've always been hoping that his NHL career would take off. Hopefully this gives it a jump start!

As crazy as it sounds looking at the numbers Blake is slowing down so hopefully he picks it back up to hit 100.

In probably a bit over a month Cullen will become the first Minnesotan to play in 1500 NHL games. The 20th player ever. Crazy.

If true what an a hole.

Does JBSU have any kind of big banner for Cullen? He deserves it. I think there is one if I remember. Also for Hedican?

It appears the Blackhawks are going to release Luc Snuggerud from their minor league team. He has been plagued by concussions. Too bad he had a ton of potential.

Since I like numbers I was curious which Gophers have hit on big contracts. For next year, total salary (signing plus salary):

Nate Schmidt will be the seventh highest paid defenseman. Woah.
Gophers have three of the top 30 earning D and 5 of the top 50.
Wheeler will be tied for ninth highest paid forward.

As far as total contract value, Gopher defensemen are getting much richer than their forward counterparts.

Kinda makes sense, especially if some of them like Schmidt signed contracts more recently rather than taking a long contract a while back. Wheeler is the only forward I can think of that signed one recently (and has the seniority to be a UFA).

Other than Mittelstadt which is tbd there aren't really any forwards with contracts expiring that could hit the jackpot.

When you look at all former Gophers who are now regulars in the NHL, would it be fair to say that today's numbers with big contracts are at an all-time high, and have maybe peaked, at least for the immediate future?

That's nice. CM is probably better than Lias. At this point his draft position was fine.

I've watched 50 games since he's been in the NHL and I didn't think he was lights out when he was a Gopher, either. He's wrapping up year two of his three year entry level deal. Let's see if he's still a stiff next year. I'm betting on it.

So you have the Buffalo Sabres satellite sports package and have watched all of CM’s 50 games? Is that what you’re saying? 😉

I have money on his point totals and bragging rights with co-workers. I also enjoy watching hockey.

I think what this means is he was on an AHL contract, and now he on NHL deal. It allows Buffalo to be able to recall him if one of the NHL goalies get hurt if they make the playoffs. A couple of other teams did deals like this today. More of a paperwork thing than anything else.

If he hits 60 games and has under 30 points, it's worth a couple grand to me. Thanks for the support! :)

CM has the second worst FO percentage for players with 400+ face offs. I noticed that last year that he struggled with that even at the college level. His peers down there are okay players, though... Kuznetsov, Petterson, and Barzal.

Idk if they have tried him on Eichel's wing at all but they should.

Patrik Berglund really did me a solid by walking out on Buffalo. They stubbornly plugged " Mitts" in second line 80% of the time and he's not even lucking into garbage secondary assists. It's comical, unless you are a Buffalo fan or a fan of CM.

Your NEGATIVE obsession with a former Gopher (supposedly your college team) is just weird. It’s as if CM banged your niece, then failed to afford her a “Derek Jeter” sendoff😉 Betting (think you’re embellishing) a couple grand on CM point totals not reaching a certain threshold. Talk about being a total DB...on a Gopher Hockey message board (to boot)...

Any opinion allegation that bearpaw made against Casey regarding my niece, while your here? I'm thinking of calling her. I thought, much like fantasy football, I was just rooting against a player I think is overrated to make some money from people that I think overrate him. Perhaps this is all more sinister though, being that my beloved niece could be involved.

Thanks. However now I realize that in both quoting each other, we'll never know the true identity of the person Mr. Sunbone is blocking.

Funny you mentioned my niece, she's a Bulldog alum and is married to a Canadian former hockey player and sadly, a Wild employee. I think I would have taken your option. I kid, I kid... :lol:
