    I like Eick!

    In fact, that slogan has a presidential ring to it. Can we start a write-in campaign for president?

      Nice! It's not too late to get some t-shirts printed up.

          Furne played for Tartan as a 9th and 10th grader. Tartan's problem is that they lose all of their good players to H-M.

            Eick is a heck of a skater and playmaker but he needs better scoring sense. At the MN game, he had a ton of shots, some high quality chances all alone, but he wasn't very creative with the puck.....no dekes, nothing crafty, just whacked it at the net. Petan on the other hand, has amazing scoring sense and seems to read goalies very well. I think we have both these guys for 4 years....small guys need to put up insane stats to get pulled into the pros early. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I'd be surprised if Grimaldi doesn't play his full eligibility. What's got into Rix and Chad Pietila? Looks like they play better when the pace is crazy fast.

              Yes but that has nothing to do with his presidential campaign. (Big Bill Clinton has a terrific "scoring sense", look where that ended up - Eick will uphold the dignity of the office!)

                *groan*

                I don't think Eick is a pure scorer, I think Mel just wants to see him shoot more instead of looking to pass most of the time. A lot of funny bounces happen, even when the guy taking the shot can't snipe it. If Eick shoots from the left wing, it might rebound to Rix or C. Pietila who are (hopefully) crashing the net. It could also be redirected off bodies/sticks and in. We're talking about NCAA goalies here, and most of them are not the next Jon Quick.

                      It's definitely possible to shoot at a goalie so as to create a rebound. If Eick can do that effectively and can learn to read goalies he would be terrific. All he really needs to do is get the goalie moving a little bit.

                          Well-deserved - .908 SV% for a freshman goalie with only one career start before last weekend, against a Gopher team that is still likely to end up finishing #1 in the country.

                            That is very good news. Attitudes and expectations must change before the Perpetual Losing Culture can change.

                                The writer puts Blake P. in the "likely" category.
