Have you watched NCAA woman's hockey? Hitting isn't allowed, and there still are a lot of injuries.

He's not allowed, PPO's ya know...

You can take SCSU out of the WCHA, but you can't out the Jan.

Can always count on Slappy to dust off the old lines...

No shame in losing to past Frozen Four participants.

They're in the club.

It's losing to teams with a well established record of NCAA bed wetting like SCSU that hurts.
Who did SCSU wet the bed against? Not like we have lost twice to 15 seeds. Or went down 4-0 in the first period of a tournament game.

I know, it's hard to admit. It's just too dangerous. The players are just too big, too fast, too strong. Just way better than their predecessors. It's just too hard to officiate, too hard to teach, and there is just no place for body on body contact. Players over 5'11" should not even be allowed to play in today's world. It is way more enjoyable to watch a player skate end to end without being touched. It's graceful and beautiful! There is no place for young players to look up to players like Stevens, Neidermeyer, Pronger or Blake. The facts are just overwhelming :)

Gravalese, is that you?

My favorite player to ever watch was Hasek. I hope there's never a ban on Czechs in men's hockey.

I'm also in favor of points being awarded for figures, footwork, expression, visual connection to the audience, musical choice and meeting all the jump requirements. A two-minute "time-out" in the kiss&cry box should be sufficient for players who appear to pout or utter naughty words.

No one gets that worked up playing Jan.

Nope, never happens. You'll never see a Gopher going high on a Husky player in a manner that could ever be seen as a cheap shot. (https://youtu.be/sDGuZZj_f_U)

Lucia already sat Seeler down and told him hits like that can't happen. And he was suspended for the hit. But let's keep making this whole discussion about your team.

Perhaps we should focus on the repeat offenders who's actions aren't being corrected. If you can stand not being the focus of the conversation for a minute, that is.

Look. wittchow the BADger will get at least a 2 game suspension for a dirty hit on a Gopher player two years in a row. He lined up to give a dirty hit to novak, and cleaned his clock. The Gophers are not going to go to that extreme against jan.

After that game, the count is three times he's been suspended for cheap shots now. Yeah, Lucia wasn't looking for that coming into this season at all...

It never was about SCSU, it's about Lucia knowingly bringing in a player with multiple suspensions for cheap hits prior to this season. Lucia knew it was going to happen at some point in the season and he still brought in the castoff goon. It just so happened that he laid out a charging elbow shot to the head of our little Finn rather than saving it up for Bucky - because he's a smart U of M student.

So Lucia is responsible for his behavior before he comes into his program? That's laughable. He got suspended for the hit this year (a suspension I've seen no Gopher fan argue wasn't warranted). Lucia talked to him and said that those hits won't fly here. He's been warned, any additional infractions should be dealt with more severely.

I just love the fact that you clowns will do anything, ANYTHING, to try and steer discussions to your program. I'm not a SCSU hater like many Gopher fans are, but I can certainly understand the Jan Brady comments.

No one is arguing with you on Seeler being a dirty player.

NO ONE.

Now can your fragile ego afford to have the discussion shift to more recent hits that haven't been addressed?

This has never been about SCSU, no SCSU fan has said it is or was, it's merely the example of a Gopher player doing exactly the same thing as what the Gopher fans are decrying about a player on another team doing the exact same thing. We use Seeler's hit as an example because - and here's the big shocker - it's one of the two Gopher games we were actually watching this season. Shock and surprise!

I know!

Let's start with eliminating cheap head shots!

Like, those from marginal players on a teams getting curb-stomped by their greatest rival?

Gee, if only we had a recent example....

Follow the conversation. Your fellow Gopher fan is saying get marginal players out of the game. Yet your coach brought in a marginal player that was known for this type of play. Lucia isn't responsible for Seeler's play at UNO, but he brought him in knowing what type of player he was. He can't now pretend he didn't think Seeler was going to make those type of hits.

This isn't trying to bring SCSU into it. It is saying that you guys don't exactly have the moral high ground here, so don't act like the Badgers are the only team employing goons when you guys have one too.

And we should steer discussion towards SCSU for the simple fact that it is the only team in the state worth talking about at the moment.

No, people are just messing with you because you're hijacking a troll thread aimed at mocking outrage at our player getting nearly decapitated.

SCSU isn't MN's "greatest rival".

Seeler hit wasn't "recent".

No one disputes Seeler's hit was dirty.

Yes, lets do follow the conversation.

In fact, lets follow the post.

Nowhere in the post does it advocate to "get marginal players out of the game".

Those were your words.

I called for eliminating cheap head shots.

(It's right up there. Get someone to read it to you.)

And buy a sarcasm meter. :D
