Hah, no video to the best of my knowledge. This was later in my Crease Creature career, but that's still (frighteningly) about a decade ago.

Cool link. That Zimmer kid is probably better than most of us think he is. I for one have always thought he was going to be a stud.

sorry for the double-post...I didn't realize that I was in the recruiting thread when I first posted this

I'll put my "administration puppet" hat back on and put this out there.

Applications are now open for the 2016-2017 Fan Advisory Board.

I encourage all to apply. I was involved a few years ago and got to see some very interesting things. You get a bit of a peak behind the scenes (facility tours) as well as behind the curtain (administration fielding feedback on events, promotions, changes, ideas).

I believe they schedule 4 meetings (1 per calendar quarter) and try to match them up to sporting seasons. Most of the meetings were scheduled to allow for easier weekend travel for people who are outside of the Madison area. A few of the meetings were scheduled around sporting event weekends when people would be coming into town.

A special change for this yer:
The Athletic Department is currently accepting applications for the 2016-17 Fan Advisory Board. Season ticket holders in any UW sport are strongly encouraged to apply. New this year, applications will be also accepted from non-season ticket holders who are regular Badger game attendees. Previous season ticket holders who dropped their season tickets recently are encouraged to apply as well.

You can get all of the details here. As with previous posts of this nature, I'll be glad to answer any questions that people may have via the board, PM, e-mail, telegraph, smoke signals, ESP or any other communication method.

Interesting thought for a little "alternate history theorizing"...

Suppose Phil The Rodent ignores his nature and stayed home at UW for 05-06. What are the consequences?

Most immediate consequence would be roster. Heisenberg had Ben Street committing a month or so after Rodent's decision. I didn't join the board for another year, but if I recall my lurking correctly, Street was 100% a replacement for Phil so he likely is never here if Phil comes in. No "Our Ben... In the middle of our Street" song.

Not sure what the downstream impact is on recruiting. Might be he stays for a second, but presumably he's still a one and done. Having yet another empty roster spot for a new freshman vs a sophomore Street, so that season probably is even worse than it was. Who we replace Rodent with in 06-07 is a pretty major factor in guessing what our team looks like in subsequent years.

Does Rodent play on the top line? Who does he displace? As a RH shot, you'd assume Pavs. How does that impact Pavs' development? He's such a hard worker that it's tough to think that he wouldn't still play well and become a success as he has. He probably takes Joudrey's (right? or was it RossCo?) spot as 4th forward on the first PP unit. Still, maybe he doesn't get as much time to shine as he did once our top line was locked in. Does he stay for a junior year?

What else changes? Does it alter the perception of Eaves as a recruiter of forwards? Does it have an impact (positive or negative) on his views on one-and-done types? We will never know.

I was led to believe that Jack Skille did not get along with Kessel, to the extent that he probably would not have come to the UW if Phil did.

I think the feeling was mutual, they were never going to play together in college.

Skille got the better end of the deal and has a ring, the Kessel run ended with Holy Cross;)

MADISON, Wis. – Head men's hockey coach Tony Granato announced on Monday the addition of defenseman Philip Nyberg, who has signed a National Letter of Intent and is expected to join the Badgers for the fall.

Born in Karlskrona, Sweden, Nyberg spent last season skating for Linköping HC J20 in Sweden's SuperElit league. In 45 regular-season contests, the right-handed shot posted four goals and 18 points. He added a goal in four playoff games.

"He is a very athletic, explosive skater," Granato said. "His first two steps are really good. He's also a quality person from a quality family with great character."

In the prior season of 2014-15, the 6-3 and 192-pound rear guard skated three games with the same Linköping HC J20 squad, but played the majority of the year with Linköping HC J18, serving as an assistant captain. He had three goals and 12 points in 20 games playing in the J18 Elit league, as well as two assists in nine games in the J18 Allsvenskan league.

Nyberg is the fourth signing of the spring for the Badgers. The signings of goaltenders Jack Berry and Johan Blomquist, as well as defenseman JD Greenway, were announced last week.

I work with a guy whose son was on team WI with traitor and Skille, there was no way they were going to play together. I think a great coach could have made it work as the fella's matured. I don't know if MM was that guy or not.

That's interesting, I never knew this side of it. Maybe it's just because he's the one who came to UW, but I had always thought that he just flat out wanted to be a Badger no matter what.

Read the article, it gives you all that you would need to know.

But I'll go ahead and fill you in..
He never got his degree as a student.
Part of the job requirements for the Head Coach position was having earned a degree or being able to do so within 12 months of hiring.
Coach G is taking the required classes to finish his degree, 15 credits worth.

The huh was for how did he get hired without the degree. Yea I saw the 12 mos requirement, but how many colleges have a grace period?

I think I'd have to say the biggest impact by far on Wisconsin Hockey would have been if Amanda followed the traitor to UW.

I'd say 100% of them that have an opening and an opportunity to hire a guy with Tony's hockey credentials.

Ding ding ding....we have a winner. During traitorette's 14 years with the rodents, UW was a little underfirepowered in comparison to the rodents. UW would have won multiple championships, perhaps even 4 with her on the roster. We're probably talking undefeated seasonS.

I would question your source. Phil was never on Team Wisconsin. He was always a Capitol; never played high school hockey...trust me.

When we meet, and we will, we will talk Muskies, Walleye, Smallies, and Real Hockey Stories. (I can hear people I know running and closing themselves into closets as I type.)

I would trust you more than my co-worker. Or I shouldn't trust what I remember! Anyway, maybe he knew they didn't get along, who knows. I do clearly recall him saying not so nice things about Skille's metal capacity. He was shocked he got into UW. It could just be my source too. He may have been a straight A student! :)
