This year the only thing in my mind that ends the Gophers season is themselves.

Or playing an Ivy League school in the NCAAs.

...from the guy who's team was 0-fer during most of recorded history. ;)

Yeah, more chat fodder. Now we can get back to arguing over which D should sit. Bring on the Marshall haters....

Everyone else understood it Harley, next time I'll use crayons for you. And stop being so defensive and excitable, you sound like a teenage girl.

Stauber - it's all good I think we'll age to disagree about my perception of the sky is falling bits.

"Everyone else understood it"...that's funny.:D Lie much? Of course you're assuming they even understood your drivel to begin with. Oh nevermind...we definitely don't want to be accused of causing you to think and disrupt YOUR VIEWING EXPERIENCE.:p

"age to disagree":D Here we go again. Thanks for showing us how dumb you can be and still breathe.:D

Bjugs had all the talent in the world. He didn't assert it at the end of last season though.

I'd much rather have this team this season where nobody is waiting for somebody else to do something.

If this team is significantly better than last years' #1 seed overall team...an NC seems very likely. I don't know that I'd say that due to what 7(?) first year players.

The thing is (look at Michigan State a few years ago) if you get hot at the right time and have the desire and puck luck you can win the tournament. You just have to get in. Now some teams are behind enough talent wise that it's going to be a much tougher climb, but the one and done thing in hockey of all sports comes down to being in the right place at the right time.

Look at the US at World Juniors this year. They played extremely well but they had a couple of bizarre things happen and boom they're done.

I dunno I think maybe you've been a little too hard on Slap Shot, Harley. Looks can be deceiving ya know. Ok, so he can't spell and looks like an idiot. But deep down in the core of his being, I'm sure he knows that's not really true. I still think he's one of the best posters on USCHO. When everyone was criticizing me for mistakes I've made in the past, he helped me a lot and I can't forget that.

I'll agree with most here. Never expected them to be in the position they're in at this point of the season. Their tendency to play down to their opponent worries me, but that's what young teams do.

I don't care who scores or who makes the saves. Just win.

That may be what everyone is afraid of. Let's get the weird losses out of the way and drop a few spots in the rankings before going in to the tourney. Maybe that will ease some of the pressure. Then again, this team does seem to be a bit different, so maybe they can just keep rolling.

Warning and Condon sure have stepped up the last few games, nice to see those two get engaged again.

This team is fun to watch you never know who is going to score from game to game.

Love seeing Warning and Condon running, now let's get Rau and Fasching going again too. :)

I was thinking the same exact thing after tonight's game. It's so sweet that this team doesn't rely on a star, or two, or three to score goals. All of the players including their six D are threats to score, so the opposing coach cannot key on any one line. It seems that whenever a couple of players find themselves not playing up to their potential, or are just not having any puck-luck, others step up to carry the day and relieve the pressure that others may be putting on themselves. All this is great to see, and if it continues this team could go far.

Just to be clear, I'm not worried about Fasching. He's just a bit snakebit. He's still playing like the beast he is and getting opportunities. The goals will come if he doesn't get too frustrated.

Agreed 100%. Absolutely love the guy, and there is no doubt the brain trust in the Kings' organization is salivating over the progress he's making at the D1 level. He may have had a sub-par weekend (for him) - but again it just goes to show how others have consistently been able to rise up and even over-compensate for the few that are not at the top of their game, in any one particular game, or weekend. Tonight it was Warning and Condon's turn to shine; next weekend it could be Fasching, Rau, Boyd, Ambroz, Kloos, etc. etc. The way they are moving the puck while still playing a good defensive game, who knows whose turn it will be to get the headlines?

The talent depth is saving our butts, no doubt.

Absolutely. This, and add Parenteau to the mix and Scooby will need a bigger glass. Good timing,too. Jan seems to be cramping.

You're wrong. They lost because they didn't have enough Minnesotans.
