Don't forget the limo ride to Sugar Daddy's at 2:00am.

That really doesn't need to be brought up again. Although I can't say I wouldn't go again, just for the hilarity it caused from the first time. And I didn't have to pay anything. ;)

Not to start a fight because Cornell has been traditionally a strong hockey school but why would anyone want to want a defensive game, why not recruit players that can score? If you get up on Cornell by a couple of goals you can take them off of their game. Yuck trap hockey is boring to watch, I would rather watch a 5-3, 7-6 hockey game...

There are different forms of the trap. A trap is not boring if you have skillled players who create turnovers and score goals off those turnovers. I have not watched Cornell play much, but when I have they play a more passive defensive trap probably because they don't have the horses to be more aggressive. When you watch a team like the Detroit Red Wings trap, I am not sure how you could say that is boring?

I agree but they are more likely to use the left wing lock. ;)

I assume these emails were obtained through the freedom of information act?

Good read. Wonder at what point Notre Dame bailed in the process to pursue their NBC deal or if Denver was just jumping the gun on listing them as a founding member.

There is a blip on the first page that states:


The St. Cloud Times requested emails sent and received from June 3 to Aug. 3 for the following: President Earl H. Potter III, men’s hockey coach Bob Motzko, Athletic Director Morris Kurtz and special adviser for athletics Gino Gasparini. The Times asked for emails that contained within the subject line the words “hockey, National Hockey Center or WCHA.”

The university, through its special adviser to the president, Judith Penrod Siminoe, allowed access to the requested emails after a review to comply with data privacy laws. That review allowed the university, under state law, to redact certain information, such as the names of potential donors, before the emails could be provided.

Great article by The Times. Many interesting facts were revealed including, but not limited to, that the initial statements by President Potter as to whether SCSU would even accept an invitation from the NCHC were merely public announcements of the confidential recommendations he got from Gino Gasparini.
