I believe when DU & CC chartered the plane to Columbus one team took one side of the plane and the other team took the other side. Of course CC flew home early.

Actually that was at the Final Five that year. They flew out together and back together.

Wow, that must have been some flight! When they were flying out to Columbus they probably figured one of the two teams would go home happy. Imagine how happy Matt Carle was, Nat. champ and the Hobey!!! And we need to get that Rocco kid. Imagine how much fun it will be to say "Rocco" And how about that last name, Grimaldi, royalty or what?

Some hockey talk to interrupt the lacrosse talk. ;)
From Schlossman (Herald sportswriter) twitter:

He is supposed to visit all 3 schools on his trip back to California. He will be a 2011.

I was thinking the same thing. We gotta get that kid.

Yo Rocco!

You know I remember as a rookie "poster", I said the same thing about Bozak. Something like, "how cool will it be to hear an anouncer with a deep voice saying, "Tyler Bozak" Of course I hadn't reached my 1000th post yet , so it went ignored;) , but anyway...

I don't care how he plays, we have to have a kid named Rocco!!!!

From Schlossman (Herald sportswriter) twitter:Glad to Schlossman is breaking stories two months later than LetsGoDU. I guess the Pony Express fell behind schedule this winter when they couldn't cross the Red River.

When in reality, someone asked him in the comments section of his blog and he said he would ask Grimaldi and find out. I knew those were Rocco's top 3, but that was a while ago and some people probably thought things might have been narrowed down by now.

Wolves up 2-1. Doell was not playing.
"Chicago goaltender Peter Mannino (6-3) earned the victory with 27 saves and survived a 17-6 shots disadvantage in the third period as Texas attempted to claw back."

Matt Carle got his 2nd assist of the playoffs on the game tying goal, but Boston came back to win in OT.
Wonder if Colborne was at the game?

Add another goal for Gauthier although they lost to Worcester 3-2.
Trotter takes on Seabrook today and Mannino and Doell are also in action.

Trotter gets 2 assists in tonight's Hamilton victory over Abbottsford.

Looks like a good crop of recruits.

I say hockey by about 2 months. :D

So as you all probably know by now, we ended up 5th in the best team of the decade list. ****!! I thought for sure we would end up in the top three! Still though, 5th best team of the decade out of 60 teams? Not bad. Just imagine if we hadn't choked in some of those playoff games. I should think all of this data gathered by "Priceless" would be interesting to the coaching staff.

Good question. If you would have asked me before our recent NCAA choke jobs, I'd say hockey. But Gwoz has temporarily lost his post-season coaching ability. Until he gets his mojo back, we'll be looking back to the glory days of 04 and 05.

Lacrosse has got a decent shot. I think that lacrosse could become a regular in the top 5-8 pretty quickly. But I also think that it will be hard to break through the stranglehold that top 3 or 4 teams have had on the top tier of college lacrosse. We'll see.

I agree with all you say Pablo. However those top 4 schools included Princeton. We now have their coach and just slightly more liberal admission standards. I love the fact that our goalie recruit, Jamie Faus, was also recruited by Hopkins.
With the talent we bring in for Hockey, we really should contend for a Championship every year and win one every few years. Naturally, I am not biased.

According to link below, Genoway will be returning the Sioux. Great to see him recovering and returning to college hockey. Although, can't say I'm looking forward to him running the Sioux power play and defense again next year.
