    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    I distinctly remember watching that game and thinking, "what the heck is Cornell doing? Why are they taking so many chances on offense?" Which is why I'm posting on a message board instead of coaching...

    Every NHL team plays the "trap" and during the time they are playing take many chances.

    Just about every school in existence has more students than CC, so that point of comparison is without meaning.
