    This is a brilliant effort out of the Cloud fans, really. Even if they get stomped (which I don't think will happen, FTR) they can still yammer on about how we should hang a banner for playing well to start the year.
    Like I said, Gopher fans have been telling us that for years when SCSU would "play to their potential" to start a season.
    Not our fault you guys want to change the rules when they fit the profile you want them to.

      Nobody is raising any banners for what MN has done thus far. However, the team has shown signs of doing things that it clearly has not done since the seasons in which it was a regular participant in the NCAA tournament. Strong goaltending, strong penalty kill, and a decent offense are never a bad combination to have, and should those things continue, MN will certainly finish in the top tier of the league and be a force to be reckoned with in the postseason. What is also encouraging is that this team has won ugly when it's needed to and has shown an unusual (for Minnesota teams at least) willingness to play as physical and gritty as need be to get the job done. If you haven't seen them play as of yet, one thing you will likely notice is the top line - while highly skilled - is also VERY physical by Gopher standards(even the relatively tiny Rau will not shy away from hits). Given what we've seen so far, I'd say we have good reason as Gopher fans to be optimistic.

        No. Only if they win two NCAA Championships in a row can we show some happiness about their play.

          Got it. So it's only OK to be cocky in November if it's the Gophers.

            Yes. And when they lose in a region final the following season (after winning the F5), we're supposed to be p*ssed off that they failed to advance.

            It's funny how obtuse Jan fans are - as if we're somehow being selective about making fun of them for playing well early in years past. Here's the reason you dolts - it's because your program's history has shown nothing but brickfests in March. Even with the last three pitiful seasons, I can still pretty clearly remember MN's last F5 title, last F4 appearance, and last NCAA title. Your team has just one of those three things in its entire history, and it's been quite awhile since that happened.

              And?
              Not one of your teams current players has seen any of those things, they haven't seen an NCAA tourney win, they haven't seen an appearence in the NCAA tourney at all, hell none of them have even seen the weekend at the Final Five.
              Your history is just that, and it means zilch to this year's team who so far have only proven they can start the season 10-2.

                '10-'11: UMD 6-0-2
                '09-'10: BC 2-1
                '08-'09: BU 4-1
                '07-'08: BC 3-1-2
                '06-'07: MSU 3-1
                '05-'06: UW 4-1-1
                '04-'05: DU 4-3
                '03-'04: DU 4-1
                '02-'03: MN 2-1-2
                '01-'02: MN 5-0
                '00-'01: BC 5-1
                '99-'00: UND 3-0-1
                Total: 45-11-8 (.766)

                So apparently playing well early does matter to some degree. None of these teams were under .500 in the first month.
                IT matters to some degree, unless you're the 08-09 Gophers who didn't lose until their 12th game of the season. That team crapped the bed so badly they didn't even make the NCAA tournament.

                  Why is this forum even turned on more than maybe a week or so in April? Let's just see who wins the NC and have 1 thread each year for their fans to celebrate in and then lock it quickly so as to not be living in the past.

                  Seriously, no one is saying the Gophers' success so far is a guarantee of any playoff success or even that they'll necessarily continue it throughout the rest of the regular season so opposing fans can save their time and stop debating that strawman.

                    I am saying that the Gophers are the best team in the history of hockey. This years team is easily the best team to ever play the sport at any level. It's clear they will sweep the Conference and Final Five titles as well as the NCAA title, Calder Cup and Stanley Cup.

                      No, it's OK for the Gophers and their fans to be cocky ANYTIME.

                        I'm thinking a split this weekend. I was hoping to get down to Mariucci for the first time since 2008, but I'll be in Milwaukee all weekend.
                        I knew there was another reason why I didn't want to go to Milwaukee this weekend.

                          I phrased that wrong. He wasn't actually SIGHTED, he was heard from. And no, shortbus should not be seen but not heard. He shouldn't be seen either.

                                Lucia got sarcoidosis in the middle of that season. It *may* have had something to do with the team ****ting the bed.

                                FTLT, you're so effing dense, you aren't worth the bandwidth you waste with your posts. If you choose to ignore the explanation offered to you regarding why your fans get crap for being overly optimistic (since your team perpetually fails each spring), that's on you not on us.

                                Lucia is healthy (unlike '08-'09), and Guentzel has replaced the incompetent Hill. If you can't grasp how these two things might lead to a much better season for MN, then you are seriously beyond help, and your IQ is likely lower than whatever mediocre win total your team ends up with at season's end. The players may not have the tournament experience, but the coaching staff certainly does.
