Bumparoonydoony!!

Two weeks off before we play again, oh the humanity!!! It's seems like forever since we last played Northern Mich. I'm thinking it was when they were still in the WCHA and had an awesome team!! Who was their star, possibly a Hobey Baker winner? I want to say Dave Emma. Is that right?

The guy you're thinking of at NMU was Gary Emmons. Big time goal scorer, I don't think he won the Hobey. Dave Emma played for Boston College and I think he won the Hobey in early 90's.

After completion of the weekend with UMD and MN tying on Sunday and UND beating MSUM, DU is tied for 2nd in the WCHA with UMD with 20 points. UND leads with 22 points. UNO is 4th with 17 points followed by CC, Minnesota and Wisconsin tied for 5th, all with 14 points. Everyone of the leaders has played 14 league games except for CC and UNO, who face each other in the only conference series this weekend in Colorado Springs. If UNO sweeps they will be in 2nd place all alone and DU and UMD would slide to 3rd. A CC sweep puts them all alone in 4th and UNO in 5th. A split keeps the standings just as they are. If UNO can get a 3 point weekend, they will be tied for 2nd with DU and UMD.

More importantly DU is in 6th in the PWR after yesterday's games and just above UNO and just behind UND.

Wow!! Who would have thought we would be here after all the losses we had? Not to mention doing all this without the services of Jesse Martin and the last few games Beau Bennett. Wait until we get Beau back and when K Ostrow catches fire!! I feel like there is even more to this team that we haven't seen yet. Finally, with the majority of our scoring being Freshmen and Sophomores, the future's so bright, I gotta where shades!!! :cool::cool::cool:

Tonight's Isles/Preds game is on MSG+ in the NYC area and anyone with the NHL Center Ice package should be able to get it. Game is at 8PM EST.

Rhett is the leading scorer on the Sound Tigers with 24 points and the leading rookie scorer in the AHL.

From Isles' game recap


The one positive was that Islanders forward Rhett Rakhshani made his NHL debut at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. He recorded one takeaway with 11:44 of ice time and finished the game with an even plus-minus ranking.

Its definitely an adjustment, Rakhshani said about his first NHL game. Its a lot faster (than the American League). Guys are stronger, take time away a lot quicker, but as the game got going, I felt a little more comfortable. I think I learned a little from tonight and hopefully I can take that into the next game.

For his first game at the National level, Capuano thought Rakhshani played well.

He played fine, Capuano said. He made some high percentage plays in the offensive zone. He didnt turn many pucks over. He got the puck deep when he had to. He got in scoring areas and then went and had a few chances tonight.

DU offering $10 Tickets on New Years Eve & $11 tickets on New Years Day via a Ticketmaster email blast. Looks like another empty seat fest at Magness.

It's a tough day and an low-awareness opponent. I think it's a mistake to schedule games then unless you can get a big name.

And even with a big name opponant, you'd have to promote the heck out of it. What's the lowest paid for any game in the Gwoz era? This feels to me like a 2 grand or less deal, especially new year's eve.

By my count, DU has had 3 games on either NYE or New Years Day in the past 6 years and the average attendance has been roughly 5,500. DU had a pretty full house for UNO last year on New Years Day. We also had Mankato on halloween last season and drew pretty well -- at least 5000. Riding the light rail home after that Mankato game in my official suit was an odd experience, to say the least.

In regards to the "lowest paid in the Gwoz era", we will never touch the low point of 100-200 at the Coliseum or a particular game at McNichols which didn't even hit 100. This was during the time between the destruction of the old barn and the construction of Magness.

Actually, those are pretty good numbers, considering the students are on "winter break" on 12/31 and 1/1. Failing to break 100, on the other hand, sent shivers down my spine. It's one thing to play off campus while your new arena is being constructed, it's another matter to play in several arenas in one season, while your new playpen is being built. Glad those days are in the rearview.

Me either. Out of town alums at a particular disadvantage in those days: no USCHO.com, no blog, no online DU releases, and the university was peddling its "nothing to see here, move along" line. If not a deliberate effort to mislead us, certainly a deliberate effort to keep us from asking too many questions.
