So we know at least D-E-F is tomorrow.

No one on here in A-B-C?
I’m C and it’s tomorrow at 9, which now leads me to believe they have put literally everyone at the same time. But on that note, has anyone received the second email they mention with the purchase link and hotel info? All it said was we’d get something before our slot but they’re cutting it pretty close.
I heard of someone getting to buy today. So must have been the highest priority peeps today, and a free for all for the rest of us tomorrow. Happy keyboard pounding!

Anyone know if we can buy a full session pass? It currently shows as separate events on the Ticketmaster.

The site is live, folks. Just ordered mine. Went live about 8:55-8:56.

Was able to get Row A seats in a side/corner upper level section, for which I'm satisfied. Went with the lower price level to hedge against risk in the resale market.

A bunch of us are center ice upstairs. I’m shocked there’s still hundreds of tickets available even now. We chose cheap seats so if we don’t go we won’t be out too much if we can’t sell them.

Now we just need the team. Saturday here we come!!

The number will continue to chip away this morning, and once a team makes it the remaining few will be gone quickly.

Even though we got tickets, it was a mess of a roll-out. So long up in the air over even having attendees (people make plans), last minute information email, having to make a Ticketmaster acct. I also think mobile tickets only and NO CASH at the arena may have turned off a lot of older fans. This is a bizarre year and I think many people just said :censored: it.
We're going no matter who's in, it's always a fun weekend, even in strange times. Word of warning, Delta flights to Pittsburgh are very limited! Direct has already sold out and because of time change you really need to fly the day before. Other flights have LOOOOOOG layovers in Detroit or God help us, Atlanta! Go south to go north :anger:

There’s still tons of seats available. I’m surprised.

If Gophers don’t go, how much do you think we can charge for a whioux fan? 😂

Potentially 400 a pop. How do you even sell tickets like this, though?

I too was shocked at the amount of tix that were available this morning. This is a sad day for me that we have decided to pass on this FF for the 1st time since 2006 ( minus last year). :( On the bright side, by us not going, it will dramatically increase the chances of the Gophers making it :D

No no I get that, I did say “older” fans :lol: An example would be my dad who would just throw up his hands. I have no problem with it, but lots of people are intimidated if they’ve never used it. It was a lot of hassle this morning having to make a new account at the last minute. I completed my purchase but I was stressed.

As someone who is from southern MN I can confirm that everyone's work ethic is both lazy and dishonest. We're just looking for the easiest route to get the job done, no matter how half-assed. It's actually a real problem. They're doing a study at the U on how to correct this issue.

I think you are reading into it to much. He didn't say everyone else sucked, he just said that's what you think of when describing northern MN...and it is. not many suits running around on the Iron Range or in Warroad MN. I am also not sure if meth making is considered a honest wage though. We had plenty of those folks trying to buy that stuff when I worked at the store in Grand Rapids...

Why? The Big Ten was weak a lot of those years. If you don't think the conference was weak for multiple of those Big Ten title years you're in denial.

Reminds me of when people were stroking themselves over winning 3-4 B1G titles in a row as if it was some major accomplishment.

It was a major accomplishment, but the 2 WCHA titles in a row before that was more impressive than the 4 Big Ten titles before Notre Dame showed up.

The best teams in the B1G can play with anyone, in the long run. The separation is definite, though, between the top half and bottom half, much like the old WCHA. Same with the Nacho conference, same with Hockey East, etc.

Kind of surprised to see Minnesota there but also with seeing that makes the actual post-season results all the more puzzling.
Why? The Big Ten was weak a lot of those years. If you don't think the conference was weak for multiple of those Big Ten title years you're in denial.

Just like how Kato and Qpac have racked up wins.

It's a shame MI and Notre Dame got the boot. I really felt MI could have beaten UMD and then UND.

Notre Dame as a 4-seed plays the kind of game that they can beat anybody.

We were all set to go to Pittsburgh. Tickets, flight, hotel....I was so looking forward to a vacation. We have decided against going without our team. (I’m only willing to risk my life for the Gophers ;))

So who are you rooting for in the FF now?

I’ll go:
1. UMass
10. A Minnesota team not named umd; with cows having the slight edge over jan.

I’m torn between wanting to cheer for the state of hockey, but at the same time I’m over all the other insufferable fan bases.

I can only root for the Mavs if they play against Duluth (due to the insufferable Bulldog fans). Otherwise I can’t root for a trap team. It’s terrible hockey to watch.

Go UMass and St Cloud.

I’ve never heard so much love for Minnesota hockey on the local news outlets. Even heard them mention the FF on a non-sports radio channel. College hockey all of a sudden exists.

So I need to pass the teams I root for through other teams fan bases? :confused2: The unwritten rule that if you are from Minnesota you must root for another Mn school is the most rediculous thing ever. I know for the most part you have been a very respectful Duluth fan ( other than at times pointing out how good Duluth Hockey is in various, non hockey threads :poke: ). It is not like I'm going to go out and buy a UMass jersey. To be honest, I won't be mad whoever wins because I can't control it. I was ok with Duluth's 1st couple of titles, but the way some of their fans act on Twitter and other social media platforms really turned me off and those include their radio guy and a person that has been banned from here. So, let me know where to send my Minnesota sports fan card :wink:

I'm glad it's UMD instead of the Whioux, but that's definitely a "lesser of two evils" kind of thing.

SCSU fans have long been Whioux-Lite fans in their behavior, so there's no real way I can cheer for them.

Mankato has gotten away from the dirty play and whining of the Jutting era, but the trap/clog that Hastings coaches is just unwatchable.

So, yeah, I'm kind of a UMass fan at this point.

I'm having to hear from my NCHC friends once again about how the B1G sucks. So honest question. What will it take to get the B1G to be NCHC level good? This season there were three decent and entertaining teams, one ok team that was hard to break down, and three teams that weren't great. Since the creation of the B1G no one from the conference has really made a whole lot of noise in the tournament other than 3 years ago. It can't just be lack of talent. The majority of the USA WJC team was from the B1G. But obviously talent isn't everything. So what do you think the conference needs to do?

OK, so I'm confused by this. I'm legit asking this question and not trying to be a dick. I've never looked at what MSU plays as a trap, but I've seen it said multiple times on this site in the past 12 hours. My understanding of a trap is when a team puts 5 guys between the blue lines and forces the other team to make bad passes and clogs everything up just by having too many bodies (usually using a 2-1-2 setup). MSU doesn't do that for the most part, but I did see it one time yesterday. Generally, MSU has one guy forechecking at all times. He will come down to the bottom of the dots and force the pass to go to the outside along the boards. Then the defenders jump on the puck carrier. That seems to me more like a pressure defense than anything and responsible defensive hockey. Yes, Hastings has a defense-first mentality, but not a trap. Am I completely wrong about this? Is the definition of a trap being expanded? Is it just so wide-open in the B10 that it's strange to see a team play that style?

FYI, UMass isn’t much better on the trapping front. They give up very few chances and even fewer goals.

Trap teams generally have one guy pressure the puck carrier in the direction they want them to go and then converge on them in the neutral zone. You also often see four/five guys all defending their blue line. MSUM was doing a fair amount of this and it reminded me of watching the penguins play the islanders where you also see that a lot.

Ok, I see where you're coming from then, but aren't the alternatives then to either aggressively forecheck two guys or completely lay back until the offensive team gets to the offensive zone?

I guess I'm not sure I understand all the fuss. The way msu plays it is pretty aggressive in pressuring the puck for 175 feet of ice. Not really laying back and waiting for mistakes as what I've traditionally viewed as a trapping style. I get why people dislike the lay back and wait for mistakes style as it leads to a boring game. When it's used aggressively and at a high pace it's a bit more fun to watch as it creates a good share more offense.

It wasn't as bad on Saturday, but that was in large part I think because Mankato was fighting from behind. When it's tied, or especially when they're ahead, they seemed to get the one guy pressuring then block off everything (Like Trix was saying). It's certainly effective, but boring to watch.

I don't have a dislike of the team as a whole any more (unlike the Jutting years) and definitely prefer Mankato over SCSU or UMD,

I'd say it's only boring if the other team doesn't adapt. You can't beat the trap with long passes and waiting until your teammates are stationary on the other team's blue line before getting it deep, what MN did for most of last night's game. Once MN starting making shorter passes (and to players who were actually moving) and getting the puck deep with speed they started to get some quality offensive zone time. I'd also add the more frustrated MN got the longer they held on to the puck so they always seemed to pass once they got into trouble, not before.

The part MSU-M did really, really, well last night was keep their wings high on the MN point which cut down on MN's ability to forecheck. MSU-M did a fantastic job shutting down the forecheck with this strategy and no matter how much MN cycled high/low with the puck they could not create space and forced MN outside. Kudos to the Mavs for some outstanding execution.

In fairness, in games actually played during the regionals, the B1G was 1-0 against the NCHC. B1G > NCHC????

This is how I saw it. SOG went up in the 3rd and they started generating better attacks, but playing from behind can play mind tricks and a few opportunities got away from them before being fully developed. They couldn't even get that for most of the first 2 periods.

It sucks because in the one and done format, one bad game will probably kill you. Remember Dallas won the first game of the cup finals last year with a similar trapping scheme and then the rest of the series the Lightning pretty much figured it out and won. I also think this is where the Gophers lacking in high end talent at forward really hurts because when a team that relies on heavily outplaying their opponents at 5v5, if they can't get going like usual they need some PP goals or get something out of the very few chances they had while finding their game. Without those types of guys it's just impossible to win with a C effort, even with those kinds of players it's really difficult (as we saw with WI and ND). That's nothing against good college players like Walker or Meyers but there's a reason they don't really scare opponents on a power play like Pitlick or Kloos did.
<GophDogFan> yep, so sad... you have a new moment, when your uncle gets mad because you got the best of him. the last straw was when i told him that UND's hockey program is like crystal pepsi: Nobody every liked it.

Good news for Michigan St., although it seems like Lewandowski has been there for 20 years, will come back for year 5 and Cesana will stay for his Sr year.

Caufield will get it, disappointed Laffer wasn't in the hattrick. We haven't had a hattrick candidate in years.

Intriguing hire by the Tommies. Rico has 20 years of HC experience but is still fairly young at 50. Will be interesting to see how much they use the portal to build their first roster. No NCAA eligibility for awhile though so that will likely limit the caliber of players interested.
