Here's a good reason to get this thread back on the first page:

I've been watching for this. Good news! His announcement instills a little more confidence in what this team will look like offensively next year. His net presence will only get better.

The question marks are fairly large and fairly evenly weighted at F, D, and goalie. With Fasching back, I think that question mark becomes a bit smaller. No matter how well Schierhorn is doing in the USHL, that will still be a major question mark. Despite that, I think D is where we'll sink or swim.

Defense will come down to whether this years' sophomores got enough development to take it up a notch. I think between Collins, Glover and Johnson, we gave them about as much ice time as we could while ensuring we didn't damage our chance of winning. Sure Fasching will help in terms of carrying play on ice, but the leadership intangibles in terms of stability and helping out a large freshman class have a good chance to carry really help carry the mail.

We still shouldn't be the pre season conference favorites.

Any idea if the Gophers will play an outdoor game in conjunction with the Wild/Hockey Day Minnesota?

I'd love to see the Northstar Cup series played outside over that weekend...

Hopefully not... but considering there will be a rink on campus probably. It would be a conference game.

Negative...IMO outdoor ice conditions are too uncertain these days for a tournament much less a league game.

I'm done with outdoor games. Froze my rear-end off the last time I went. :eek:

Michigan would probably be the ideal match up.

Better it be a Big Ten game than a non-conference game.

If it happens, that would be my preference too (unless it's Arizona State (http://www.thesundevils.com/SportSelect.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=30300&SPID=166608&SPSID=971111), but their schedule is set for Feb. ;)). The Wild/Blackhawks at TCF is Feb. 21. North Star College Cup at the X is Jan 29-30: Bemidji State, Minnesota State, Minnesota, St. Cloud State.

Was kind of surprised that this article has been written only now. But did see that its much rarer than I thought. Don't know why many a draft pick would not do this. Pick your team rather than having it pick you.

Listened to Pat's commentary many times and enjoyed it, but like many of us had no idea how much pain he was actually in during those broadcasts. Awesome act of love by his brother. Best wishes Pat and Godspeed for a full and quick recovery!
