Ah .. thanks. I'm driving my LeSabre to Chilkoot Charlies tonight at about 11pm to interview Tony Mosey.

Ask him how he thinks his mug shot stacks up against the greats.

Congrats to the Seawolves for nabbing the 3-2 OT win. Pretty well played hockey game overall by both teams with lots of good defensive plays I thought.

Feel free to commence with the "Huskies sucked it up bad and played horrible and played on 3 cylinders and gave the game away and ..." now Huskies fans.

Was there. No good offensive plays? Or was it simply offensive?

The Huskies didn't play bad they are bad. Their 4-7-2 record speaks volume for what type of team they are. The proof is in the pudding. It doesn't matter how much talent you have if you don't play as a team. Look at the Vikings, the Huskies have become the Vikings of college hockey......

LOL.

I typed this whole long semi-funny indictment of Minnesota sports fans replete with originally coined catch-phrases, derisive monikers and hilarious acronyms. But LOL suffices ...

Anyone have lineups for tonight? Please someone tell me Dunn is getting a chance, 'cause Mike Lee's 0-2-1 against UNO and UAA in the last three games isn't exactly blowing my skirt up.

In Bob You Trust made a pretty definitive sounding statement before this series that Lee would be getting both starts this weekend. Goaltending certainly wasn't a big factor in last nights outcome. The Seawolves played a solid game in which they kept their feet moving for 60 minutes.

UAA won the faceoff battle 37-22 ... nobody on St. Cloud taking a draw came out on the positive side and 5 Seawolves did. They blocked 7 shots to St. Clouds 4. UAA also had an edge in odd man rushes though neither team capitalized on any of them. The Seawolves transitioned the puck well and challenged St. Cloud's transitions. Forechecking was solid and the Huskies often had to turn back to maintain possession or lose the puck. It was a solid all-around quality effort from all four of UAA's lines which truthfully can all get the job done. UAA's 4th line scored their 1st and 3rd goal and played effective solid hockey all night.

I know Huskies fans are dying to blame their team. But when you note that 9 of UAA's games have either been decided by one goal or been a tie you can see that there's some solid potential there.

I can only hope that St. Cloud players hang their heads in disgust the same way their fanbase does ... because if that's the case the Seawolves will be sitting in 7th place later tonight after spending the last week tied for 12th.

If the players did what the fans are doing, they'd already have their sweaters and skates hung up for the winter.

Nobody's trying to take away from what Anchorage did, congrats, they deserved the win, but anyone who thinks these teams are close in talent doesn't know too much about puck. And its not just this game that we're upset about.... getting embarassed at home to Miami, laying an egg in the rematch game against the Gophers, splitting at home with Quinnipiac, splitting at home with Bemidji, being a minute away from getting swept at home to UNO and then only getting a point, now losing to UAA... its not that we're frustrated with one night they took off, my question is, what nights have they brought their A game?

Is anyone saying it hasn't been a rough start?
Yes it has been, but the amount of people ready to quit is sad.
If you have that little faith, save your money, don't go and find something else to whine about on the weekends.
It's a game, it's supposed to be fun.
Yeah it sucks when they lose and they are underacheiving but for god's sake, if it's that bad and that much of a downer, find something else to do.

Sweet baby heyzeus it's on now bubby ...

So ... I'll cordially invite you to provide your expert talent analysis since your clear inference here is that you "know puck".

Where is the great disparity between UAA and SCSU? Is it the 6th and 7th round draft choices? Hmmm ... Dunn ... uh ... yeah he ain't even playin. Oh I know ... Aaron Marvin (3rd round choice) ... uh ... yeah another in a long line of oversold @ 18 Minnesota High School draft choices ... if he was 3rd round draft talented wouldn't have likely spent 4 four years in college.

UAA has 4 players of the caliber of Aaron Marvin ... ferchrissakes ... watch the kid skate. The NHL scouts drooled because he was 6'3" at 18 ... that was the sum total of his potential to them. And he's lived up to that by producing nothing but physical play, hacking and injured susies. He'll be a one year AHL player that gets assigned to the ECHL and plays there until he figures out he should hang up the skates.

Who's next? Shall I find some more oversold-by-homeriffic-minnesota-scouting players to pick on? Shall we look at some junior stats for those minnesota products that you seem to think are more talented? Do some comparisons eh?

Drew Leblanc? Unimpressive junior stats followed by three average years at SCSU ... UAA has at least 2 Drew Leblancs ... How about Tony Mosey? Oh wait .. UAA's Craig Parkinson blew Mosey's numbers away in the BCHL 06-07 year. So not him. Travis Novak ... his junior numbers are less impressive than Leblanc ... um who's next? Jordy Christian? He had decent numbers one year in the B ... and a grand total of 8 goals in two years playing on one of the top teams in the WCHA? Yeah .. he's so much more talented than any UAA player. Um .. Garrett Roe? Nice player .. .good numbers when he played with Ryan Lasch. Otherwise ... I don't see anything that lots of small quick good puck handling forwards don't deliver ... UAA has a freshman of the same ilk that is every bit the match of Roe in terms of talent. Festler? Hanoski? More unproven Minnesota high school players with more hype than talent. Decent hockey players at this level to be sure ... but to put them in a class above UAA just because they don't go to UAA?

I know at some point someone in this thread would put their foot in it and dude you did it big time. So come on ... step it up now and describe all the talent SCSU has. I'm not local to your team so naturally all these guys must have something in the talent bucket that i'm missing. Tell me what it is? Let's hear it eh? Where is all this "talent" that you claim for them?

Again here you display your ignorance "about puck". Where do I start? Do you know what league SCSU plays in? Do you know it's like about 1/3 of the way through the season. Why is it the default position of the Minnesota hockey egg-head-set that just because kids are playing for UAA that they have no talent? Because they aren't from Minnesota so much? Pfft ... best thing you can do for the team you follow would be to retire permanently from the internet.

Far be it for me to try to defend SCSU but ffs sparkles ... it's like about 1/3 through the season. Quit your hand wringing and arm flailing and take a look at your team and see what you see if you "know puck" instead of listening to what a bunch of fools write about them in the preseason based on nothing but numbers. I don't know if the Huskies will get better as the season goes along or will end up in the standings where they are now. And neither do you.

You are right. UAA does have the same caliber players as SCSU. That must be why SCSU FINISHES AHEAD OF UAA EVERY SINGLE YEAR.
Garrett Roe had 49 points last year. Mosey had 40. Leblanc had 31. Festler had 24. INCH said we have 2 of the top 10 incoming defensemen in college hockey this season. THERE IS THE TALENT. YOUR TEAM HAD ONE RETURNING PLAYER THAT SCORED OVER 20 pts. Your beloved Craig F-ing Parkinson had 11 points AS A JUNIOR. BCHL numbers mean nothing. The players you were ripping on proved they had talent WITH THEIR PERFORMANCE IN THE WCHA LAST SEASON.
If they weren't talented, why were people ranking them in the top 6 in the preseason this year? We finished last season ranked #5. We lost two very good players. We also have a year of experience under our belts for the 10 underclassmen that played heavy minutes last year.

Enjoy the basement.

Why the yelling? U Mad Brah?

Because they were stupid. What exactly does some boob writing a website in upper NY state know about SCSU except what he can glean from boxscores and rosters? Keep hanging onto that top 6 preseason ranking and that set of expectations and I'm sure you'll enjoy the rest of this season as an SCSU fan.


We finished last season ranked #5. We lost two very good players. We also have a year of experience under our belts for the 10 underclassmen that played heavy minutes last year.
Doesn't surprise me that I have to explain the question to every SCSU fan. Your friend Mr. "know puck" made the observation that SCSU is more "talented" than UAA. I didn't say you didn't have a good team last year. I didn't say you didn't have a good team this year. You're hand-wringing whining fellow SCSU fans did. I merely asked Mr. "know puck" to detail this talent gap between the two teams.

When there are a lot of sentences to read I know you SCSU fans sometimes get confused as to the main point. Typically, the main points or assertions to be addressed are in the first sentence and or paragraph. All the stuff that comes after is supporting information and in the case of my post primarily they are examples of how I knew Mr. "know puck" wouldn't be able to make his case that SCSU and UAA aren't "close in talent" ... because frankly every WCHA team is relatively "close in talent".

It looks like you are the one who is confused. You don't have to explain the question. I tore your argument to pieces. I refuted your main point with statistics. The case is open and shut. We aren't close in talent. If we were, you would have more than one player returning with over 20 pts. You obviously think stats are of utmost importance because that is what you based all of your arguments on. So explain how you can look at the numbers and make your case that talent-wise we are close.

Best wishes to Travis Novak. I hate to see anyone hurt like that.

But I have to say it: I am completely baffled as to why Gorham was given a penalty at all. Novak was turning, lost an edge, and was falling when Gorham hit him and it was not really from behind. By the time Novak was falling, Gorham was already well in on the check and Gorham, frankly, did not do anything wrong. I understand I will take some heat for this but I stand by what I say. Novak turned when he felt the pressure from Gorham and that is what caused him to get hurt. It's become a common practice these days for players to do and try to draw the penalty and I don't like it. Again, I hope all is well with Travis Novak but, my view he turned after pressure from Gorham.
