        actually - I think what I was remembering was a comment on their curious attraction to Calumet High players and that it doesn't speak well for the future of their program if this is their main recruiting ground. (half kidding)
        Sooth will play another year of Junior, then come next fall. Doan is on campus and will likely be the backup. Not sure about Maschmeyer. And Hanson won't be coming.

          Not unless 5 days is "awhile". I have a job in the D that I'm pretty sure would like me to return next Monday.

            The recruit losses seem mostly to be lousy luck for NMU....no particular pattern.

            I graduated from Calumet and I think the school is getting recruitment attention from NMU because the school's produced a disproportionate number of elite players for a small, public school that draws from a small population. That can be attributed to a good junior hockey program, a strong hockey culture and good coaching. Way more CHS grads have played for Tech than NMU,

            see http://www.calumethockey.org/page/show/111555-alumni

            NMU is trying to build a relationship to reverse that trend and maybe get the next Ben Johnson.
            Like the bumper sticker says..."You're Either From Cal or You Wanna Be !!"

            Obviously, Calumet is not NMU's main recruiting ground, but Walt will recruit any U.P. kid who he thinks has potential to play D1 hockey.

              The Michigan Tech Hockey twitter account re-tweeted something that I just saw, saying that we are supposed to vote for Tech to be on the cover of some Michigan hockey magazine. I don't have any links, since Twitter is on my phone and I'm posting this from my computer, but someone who is better equipped to deal with this kind of dilema might be able to link to it.

                      that's true, I didn't look that close but I thought the MSU one looked the best, ferris State probably deserves it after their run last year.

                                Gonna be $112 for the "new and improved" hockey-only video stream this year, or $12/game if purchased individually. IMO, the exhibition should at least be half price to let people test the video quality first, since the game doesn't impact the team record. Naturally though, it's all or nothing.

                                I think it's going to be the radio for me this season. Maybe I'll pay the $12 for a game here and there (NoDak, Duluth, and/or Northern).
