      When we all know you guys will be trying to come from behind. Bakunin really DOES know everything!

              And think about this: I ship HAZMAT materials across the country! Sleep tight, kids!

              So, how (relatively) good is your #2 sieve? I know he's no BOBBY!!!1!1!!!!1!!, so what is the verdict?

              Do you really think you can hang 3 on St Pat? (honest question)

              Can anyone stop 2 of the following: Haula Back, B-Jugs, the Rau-ser.

                  Not for all, no. Ambroz commonly goes by "Idiot" though.

                      No verdict on Faragher yet.
                      He's a freshman, so he's up and down but he has been decent so far.
                      Can we hang 3? Yes
                      Will we? That may very well depend on the PP, but this is a balanced offense.
                      No one pair will be tasked to stop them I don't think, maybe Jensen/Prochno but the key for the Huskies will as always be team D.

                        "Decent so far," I realize he's a frosh, was looking on the current outlook. Delivered.
                        Ok.
                        Not asking which two of yours will stop those three. Was asking if any of you could stop 2 of those three?

                          Ah.
                          Answer is still the same though.
                          If they can, team D will be key.
                          There is talent on the blueline, but not a lot of experience as SCSU has 6 underclassmen out of the 8 defensemen.

                            Assuming the Friday non-effort in Madison was an aberration, I expect Jan's goalie and defense to be under a lot of pressure this weekend. Unlike recent Gopher teams, this one not only can snipe but also has shown a willingness to crash the net looking for garbage goals. They also play with a bit of an edge and throw their weight around quite a bit. The only area of vulnerability that MN has is its young defense. They can be undisciplined at times and have gotten caught out of position which has led to oddman rushes and breakaways. If Jan has any ideas of pulling off an upset, these opportunities will have to be exploited.

                            As far as special teams are concerned, Minnesota must improve its powerplay proficiency - it's simply been brutal the last few games (they did generate a lot of chances against UND but very few against UW). I'm not at all worried about the penalty kill - a nearly 90% success rate is all you can ask for out of that group (of course, having a potential first team WCHA goalie backing them up helps).

                            Lastly, my impression of the last couple weeks is that 2nd-4th lines don't really generate much of anything against the Gophers. Only UW's top line seemed capable of scoring - let alone generating quality chances. UND had something of a similar issue; 2-3 of their players were able to get a couple quality looks, but nobody else could. MN's speed and renewed commitment to the backcheck is probably a big reason for this.

                              The feeling is mutual. I haven't had this much fun since pigs ate my brother.

Many of us have a tattoo waiting in the wings, WHEN (not IF) the Gophers are champions again.

                                UND and UW didn't generate much bc they're a one-line trick pony. SCSU rolls more depth at F than probably anybody you guys have seen, including tUMD. I'd take tUMD's top line over SCSU's, but for top to bottom depth, I'd give us a slight edge.
                                tUMD is Jan Brady per Brenthoven. Whew.... thanks for clearing THAT up.
