    hilarious! The incompetence of THE NATIONAL is almost unbelievable, like someone on the "inside" has been trying to sabotage it from the beginning. I can't help feeling happy inside when this stuff happens, even though it's probably bad for college hockey as a whole to be associated with so much fail in one of the conferences.
    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

        I agree. Every failure brings a smile to my face. It is pretty obvious that this is going to end up being a Hockey East vs. B16 Mistake race every year.

          EDIT: Hiring Don Adam would've been just as funny if any other league had done it.
          So how many months before that did Tech fans whining about the NCHC get old?

              Actually I'm not sure what to make of it. Feel they could do better but then who would it be? No idea. Colorado is the state of hockey though. That's what that one thread taught me anyhow.

                making fun of the NotChoLeague never gets old. It's like Freddy Meyer in the lodge polls.

                      seems screwy that Ben Storm is reported to be going to St. Cloud from Calumet to play hockey, and would have loved to stay home, while his cousin Tyler is coming from St. Cloud (/Delano) to Houghton to play hockey, while his family wanted him to play at St. Cloud. I guess that's how it goes...

                        Grades? Skating? Fit for Mel's system?

                        ...while his cousin Tyler is coming from St. Cloud (/Delano) to Houghton to play hockey, while his family wanted him to play at St. Cloud. I guess that's how it goes...
                        Shame it'll be unlikely they will face each other outside the NCAAs, since Mel has bigger NC fish to fry.

                          Ben's a great player, but I think SCSU showed a lot more interest in him than Tech did. Tech's coaches are very familiar with the elite local players and I think they didn't rate Ben as highly as SCSU did. So to speak, I think Ben went where he was most wanted, not where he most wanted. Time will tell if that was a good decision for all parties. To be frank, I do think it was a good decision for Ben because Tech has a history of bringing in local players only to have them ride the pine. As an out of state player, he's a bigger investment for SCSU and I expect he'll get more ice time. However, it does gaul me to see someone from my alma mater going to the team I most hate.

                            SCSU was first to offer and he really enjoyed his visit there. I'm not sure what Tech offered but Northern was in the mix too. I would've loved to see him stay local, but I wish him well. He has the physical tools, just needs to learn the nuances of playing the defense position, which he'll do the next couple years of juniors.

                              Michigan Tech has picked up a commitment from Des Moines (USHL) Defenseman, Marcus Ericsson. As you might expect from the name, he was born in Sweden and until the 2012-13 season, he has played Jr Hockey in Sweden, in fact, in Lulea, where bigblue_dl was for work earlier this year of all places. He's 6'1" but didn't put up many points with his teams so probably more of a stay at home d-man. Likely to join the huskies for 2013-14.
