    I was hoping for MN so I could watch the carnage on TV. Perhaps charter will pick up the local Duluth feed, or I could do something next weekend that DOESN"T ruin my mood!

    There have been rumors of it happening for years. Although I suppose one if these days it has to be true.

    There's not so much as a peep on campus.

    Fire Jutting. (I know it won't happen.)

    Well, it looks like the honor of eliminating the Mavericks from the league playoffs will fall to Duluth this year. Unless Bemidji gets swept by Anchorage and we sweep NoDak (highly unlikely) we'll be playing the #2 seed after having once again secured 11th place. It's still possible that Duluth and the Gophers could switch places I suppose. In any case, at least this year we won't have to go to Colorado to get knocked out.

    Every year we hear Mike Sullivan on the radio with that same old babble, something to the effect of, I don't think anyone wants to play us in the playoffs this year. Trust me, they all want to play MSU. We have never won a playoff series on the road. Once in a while, we win a game, and I pray that does not happen this year. That probably would be enough for Buisman to give Jutting another 4 year extension.

    We go through this crap every year. Start out awful, get buried in the standings. Once any chance at playoff home ice is gone, start to play a little better. People say "ooh, we could make some noise in the playoffs." Team gets eliminated on the road in opening round. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Stop falling for it.

    According to Darren Blue, the ref actually came up to the bench and told the coaches that the UNO player pushed Mosey into him. It certainly wasn't intentional, just an aggressive play with a bad result.

    Pagliai's is good stuff. Also Dino's in North Mankato right across the bridge from the verizon center is very good. Pagliai's is is more greasy, lots of cheese pizza. Dino's does it with a little more upscale ingredients and has some good specialty pizzas as well. As far as staying I think the Hilton is the best bet if you want to make it easy. It's the newest place in town and is connected to the verizon by skyway. The city center is connected as well.
    Thanks, the wife is a chef and disdains "cheesefests" on any food and pizza is her all time favorite thing to eat.

    Son of a you know what, we did not get there today. The boss was all worried last night about all the snow that fell between here and there and I am going to have to get to work on her tomorrow morning for tomorrow night. It's less than a 5 hour drive.

    We're hoping you've not permanently maimed our goalie. Can't speak to what happened since I didn't see it.

    Hey, Purple Cow fans.

    How about some where to stay and where to eat advice? The boss loves pizza. I hear that Pagliai's is the place to eat it.

    The wife and I are making MSU our annual road trip this weekend. Disgraceful that we've not done it before. With conference realignment, who knows when we'll do this again?

    We've not bought tickets in advance since we've been told it was not necessary to do so.

    Help out your bovine brethren.

    Saw this......"MSU's freshmen class has totalled 24-28--52 this year which ties for fifth in the nation amongst all first-year classes trailing only Mercyhurst (34-60--94), Ohio State (27-50--77), Michigan (28-49--77) and Providence (18-35--53). The Mavericks are tied with Minnesota (21-31--52) and Miami (24-28--52)."

    There's that and there's recruits Bryce Gervais (Penticton) leading the BCHL in goals (32 in 38 games), Brett Knowles (Cowichan) ranking 17th in that league in scoring (47 points in 17 games), Teddy Blueger (Shattuck) rated 69th in NA skaters list by Central Scouting and G Stephon Williams named to the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

    Just sayin'.
