  • Re: Minnesota vs Jan Brady State (home and home) Nov 18th-19th

    It will be interesting to see if this is a series where the big guns steal the show, or we see goals from less likely sources. Bjustad, Rau, Haula are obviously dangerous. The Huskies young D will be tested by the Gopher's depth well beyond that. Condon is a work horse, Buddish is a big body that can create chaos in front of our net. Schmidt is having a break out year on the score sheet. No doubt, this is the most well rounded Gophers crew the WCHA has seen in 5+ years.

    For SCSU, we have seen a fair amount of points coming from the young D group (We are not used to that at all). Festler has averaged over a point per game vs the Gophers in his career. Hanowski has had something click for him this year and is on the brink of becoming a special player at the college level. Thorson who had been pegged as a 4th line grinder suddenly is an offensive threat. Eddy, Dowd, & Reid all have shown they can catch fire in games. We have not seen a lot of scoring from our Freshmen Forwards which needs to change quickly.

    UM has a large edge coming in with special teams play. Gophers are converting around 26% with SCSU at 18%. Both teams PP units appear to have gone south over the last couple weeks (especially the Huskies). Gophers have a huge edge on the PK, shutting down 89% vs SCSU's 78%.

    If I'm an agitator type player on SCSU's roster, I would be hitting and giving some sweet talk to Ambroz every shift. Guy has shown very little discipline and seems like a loose cannon.

    On the flip side, SCSU will try to go 2 games without earning a 5 min major. A good goal to shoot for. With the Gophers PP, I'd highly suggest we achieve that goal.

        Should be an entertaining series, Jan usually plays an up and down the rink kind of game which will be a nice change after watching last weekends trap-fest.

          Call the SCSU ticket office you can get tickets.

That comment comes from years and years of reading posts on this site, with most of it going back to around 10+ yrs ago when I regularly posted here. I haven't been on this site very much the last few years but figured it would be fun to go back and forth a little with gopher fans this week. To be honest, my arrogant comment wasn't even directed specifically at you and is mostly a running joke, but things aren't really that funny unless true, right?

                The problem with your "Guenztel changed everything" theory is that there are way more variables in play here. Could it be that one coach can have THAT much of an effect on an entire program? Maybe, but I don't think it's very likely. As another gopher fan pointed out, "tTurnAround" is due to a combination of many factors. Btw, I did see a few tickets for the game in SC on CL last week. If you make it up I'd even buy you a beer if I get up there early enough, but I am bringing my 4 yr old son so that might make it a little more difficult.
                Fair enough, I do however believe Guentzel returning is the main reason of the Gophs current level of play but I do agree its not everything.

                ~xheers for the invite.. I'll let ya know on here, feels like Friday already, by the time Friday gets here it will feel like the season is over...

                      - Mike Guentzel's return (not just on defense, but special teams and player buy-in. He exemplifies "Pride on Ice")
                      - Don Lucia being healthy and engaged
                      - Great Sophmore and Freshman recruiting classes and Hansen turning the corner
                      - Good on ice leadership
                      - Good team chemistry and players who are committed to the program and don't have a foot out the door already (Bjugstad and Haula being examples of the former and Schroeder and Okposo examples of the latter).
                      According to fans such as Dippsy and Rababy that have the attention span of a turnip, with this comment clearly you've already annointed them NCAA champion.

                            What I stated is fact. It is well-documented, too. If you choose not to care, that makes you willfully ignorant, which is another way of saying you're being intentionally obtuse - in other words, a ****ing idiot.
                            So Lucia is healthy, was he not last year?
                            The year before?
                            Did his illness really help screw up 3 years worth of Gopher teams?
                            Lucia is finally pretty much back to normal now. He hasn't been since he first became ill in the middle of the '08-'09 season. Yes, his illness helped screw up 3 seasons. By media accounts, he was very difficult to deal with, had violent mood swings, didn't have much energy, and was often away from practices due to treatments and their side effects. There was much argument over the past year or so among Gopher fans as to whether or not he should have (in hindsight) taken a medical leave of absence. Since that would have meant Hill coaching the team, I can't imagine things would have gone much better.
                            Does one assistant really mean that much?
                            Yes. Assuming you aren't totally blind in addition to being an idiot, you will notice MN plays markedly different in its own end from how it did so in years past. They actually put bodies on people and move them out of the way for a change. That did not happen very often if at all under Hill.
                            A lot of coaching staffs have tournament experience, even ours.
                            Not many of them have multiple frozen fours and national titles.
                            Fact still remains the same, this team hasn't won squat.
                            You keep repeating this incessant mantra as if it's supposed to mean something. It's mid November. What the **** else can the team do than what it has done thus far? They're 7-1 in the WCHA despite playing six of those games on the road. If that is not indicative of a vastly improved team that appears to be a contender, what is? Obviously, things can go wrong (injuries), but as of this moment, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic. Of course, one of you idiots will probably take this to mean I think they'll win it all, because after all, some of you never fully learned the art of reading comprehension.
                            Why don't you call me stupid some more?
                            Ok. You're stupid - really stupid. You're squarely in the realm of "what college would have admissions standards low enough to take that piece of ****?" stupid. Then I remembered that Jan will take anyone with a pulse.

                                Nice try again Bakunin.
                                I actually got in and went to Minnesota, didn't get in to St. Cloud.
                                Any other shots you care to take to make yourself look like a bitter dip****?

                                As for the rest of your little diatribe there, bully for your team.
                                Yes Lucia should have taken a leave of absense.
                                Good for Guentzel, one has to wonder why he hasn't been a head coach in college if he's so good.
                                Optimsim is one thing, being a complete ***** about it is something else.
