    Could always cancel class and tell your students they get extra credit if they go?

    Hopefully I can keep whetting your appetite with preseason hockey coverage. Thanks for all the posters on here! I've been keeping an eye for good analysis and have tried to give you guys some love when I can!

    We are just under 3 weeks to opening day. Two things:

    1) Whos going to the game, and are you guys planning to get buck wild for it? (I sure hope so)

    2) I'm working on another Bentley mailbag based off questions from Twitter and email. If you have submissions, I say go for it here or email me.

    They were also listed as the top recruiting class by college hockey news!

    If you build it, they will come. It's a night out starting at Harvard. The bus should stay near there all night so the students can go out and get obliterated before and after.

Not to stir the pot by any means, but I always found him slightly overrated in that regard. I mean you don't get a sub-2.00 by being a slouch, but he was only a piece of the puzzle. That defense was filthy especially on the smaller rink up there.

    Still, he's decidedly better than guys like Meisner. If I were drafting fantasy AHA hockey, I'd probably go Komm first, Noonan second, Madolora third, and Torf fourth. And that's saying something since that's a Mt. Rushmore of talent.
    I would reorder that list Torf, Madolora, Noonan, Komm. Even Noonan was not truly excellent until his senior year last year.

    And I would say 20-30 shots is pretty average for a hockey game, and that is what Madolora typically faced. We could go back and check the data to see how many shots he really did face but I suspect it was at least an average amount over a season, and obviously his stats were far above average.

    Ok, I guess that your are allowed to be a provocateur on a thread that you started. So, Cam Burt was a senior last year, and Shane Madolora was a junior, but is now playing in net for the Lost Wages Wranglers in the ECHL. Both are now pushing 26 years old. But, I would be delighted if the the Tigers can soften up the Wolverines in their two games the weekend before we travel to Ann Arbor. How cool would it be for the Wolverines to begin this season 0-3-0!

    Now excuse me while I douse myself in gasoline and go play with a bunson burner.

    You need to do a better job than Niagara did last year.

    Or, perhaps Niagara caused the Wolverines to think that they could sleep walk past Bentley the next weekend?
