Seriously, even with roadkill they don't score very often...

Completely true at this time of year. Frostbite tends to shrink a fella's enthusiasm.

Since this is a bye week, I thought I would post this here. I thought it would be a fun exercise to put together a hypothetical Team Minnesota roster that we'd take to the Olympics if we were our own country (not saying I want to secede or anything, just thought it would be fun). Might be a good excercise for our tArrogance muscles because I think this team would be pretty respectable.

Here are <a href="http://www.mnhockeycentral.com/apps/blog/show/41620297-what-would-minnesota-s-olympic-roster-look-like-">MY THOUGHTS</a>

Interested in hearing what changes you'd make to what I have. I think we'd be very deep defensively, have two really solid lines offensively, and have some intriguing options in net.

I just glanced through it but I think Jordan Leopold is hurt again. I'd replace him with Tom Gilbert for reasons I probably don't have to explain. ;)

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

(not saying I want to secede or anything, just thought it would be fun)....and have some intriguing options in net.

First off, I've thought for some time that your state, my state and MI should secede and form our own country. The US is way too large and corrupt and a smaller country would give the people more control. The 3 states all have similar values and have a nice mix if rural and urban areas. So what do you say, as I like to put it when I want to do something, let's blow this popstand. Another reason to secede...now that I typed this I'm in the gov's data bank as a bad dude. The thing of it is I live right next to a rural airport, so when the drone is flying over head I won't even notice it. Not good.

Secondly, I didn't look at your list but from reading between the lines...your use of the word "intriguing" is code for "we have no viable option in net", though I think a 55" muskie flopping on the ice might be your best bet, though you will need more than 1 for sure.

Your state would have to show some interest in hockey before we could consider letting you into our club. ;^)

Alex Stalock. Last I checked he's doing pretty well in San Jose. Just doesn't have a ton of experience, which is why I chose the word "intriguing".

A friend of mine who is close to the team told me the team got a scare last night when Kyle Rau collapsed twice the span of an hour while he and teammates were at a restaurant. They apparently took him to ER, where they ran him through some tests and eventually concluded that it was game night and it was just his body clock taking over.

I'll need some time to think through that one.

Gophers shut-out again last night by Bye! At least they didn't lose twice in a row to the worst team in the big Ten.

I'm honored to be included in such an elite list. The only bad part is that it's tied to you. :( Take that part out and it's a mark of pride for me to be associated with this group of winners, as Happy points out. :cool:

Yes, you are very perceptive. My company has dozens of Gopher-Bye tickets available for this critical series due a conflict. Most of our key employees will be at our annual corporate retreat (in Grand Forks of all places!) next weekend, so rather than seeing the tickets go unused I can offer you a really good price, including a bunch we have at center ice! Just let me know how many you can use and I'll have one of my secretaries get back to you. Also if you need directions to Maricucci Arena she can help with that also...grats!
