    Quit thinking and just do it.

    Disappointed to hear about Marshall being at F this weekend. I was big time in the camp of moving him to F during the offseason, but after his first few games on the blueline this year I have quickly changed my tune. He didn't look bad at F, but he has much better tools as a D-man IMO.

    On the goalie situation: I will definitely agree that Wilcox has shown more to this point, albeit in a small sample size. I'd like to see Shibrowski get one more start. Preferably one where the D doesn't crap the bed in front of him like they did in Houghton. If he still looks shaky then by all means, hand the reigns to Wilcox and see if he can run with it. This isn't necessarily a "do or die" weekend per se, at least not this early in the season and I'd rather see Shibs start at home. I know conference games/points are important, but I'd like to see the goalie situation play out a little bit longer than 5 games and a couple exhibitions.

    Marshall will be on the 2nd line with Budish and Haula.

    Are you new here? We don't EVER do that around here.

    Yeah, not going to happen.
    Not the point at all. You stated in your previous remark that "I wouldn't be shocked if Hastings though [sic] they were dirty as well". He made absolutely NO comments whatsoever about any specific hits in the game, and his comments that I cited in my post indicate a greater propensity towards a more aggressive style of play. So most likely he's not as concerned as you suspected...that's the point.

    It's unfortunate Hanowski got hurt. But in regards to whether hits can be judged as "dirty" or "intent to injure", it's very difficult to judge implicit motivations unless there is demonstratively clear, indisputable visual evidence of a player showing intent to injure. I'm not taking sides here, but from a quantitative perspective, have the refs nor anyone else produced valid evidence to substantiate the hits as "intent to injure"? So your argument is unsubstantiated. It's best it let it go and move on.

    Stuff happens during the course of a game. There is a chance this big gorilla got frustrated and hit Hano a little less than clean because the Mavericks were getting butt-hammered so bad. That's all.

    Plan on some potential bloodletting this weekend as the Purple Cows have not only been relentlessly physical against the Gophers in the past, but coming off back to back losses, they'll be especially primed to notch a W. This will not be an easy series for the Gophers...beware.

    "You know, people say hockey is a contact sport. It's not a contact sport, it's a collision sport..."
    I suspect, the WCHA will see a slight upgrade in MSUM to a more aggressive style of hockey than in previous years thanks to Hastings head coaching style:

    "For me, I'm still learning about the team, and they're still learning about how things are going to be done, he said. Hastings said he wants the Mavericks to play an aggressive brand of hockey, both offensively and defensively, and much of Monday's practice seemed focused on that. We've got a long way to go to play that type of style," he said. "You have to be in elite shape, and we're not there yet. ... But I like the group; I like what I see."
    Plan on some potential bloodletting this weekend as the Purple Cows have not only been relentlessly physical against the Gophers in the past, but coming off back to back losses, they'll be especially primed to notch a W. This will not be an easy series for the Gophers...beware.
