    It's too bad. He was pretty skinny, and I think it would have taken a couple of years to grow into his frame, but I think he could have been a real good college player for UND and I for one hate to see him go.
    Whoever says the 2 exhibition games in Canada weren't successful for recruiting can now eat their words.

    Makes you wanna say "huh?" I really would like to know the reason for the move, especially the timing. Here's a link:

    I will think they are OK after two convincing wins this weekend.

    The good news? Even this canadian club team seems to be better than CC... The bad news? This UND squad plays down to it's competition. If UND doesn't sweep Colorado the NCAA streak may be over in January. Unfortunately, I do not see this NoDak team sweeping anyone.

    Simon Fraser is a club team, so winning a one goal game where it was tied with five minutes remaining is pretty darn terrible.

    I think the Saturday game was worse even with the win. UND should've won on Friday but UBC was not a terrible team. The players talk about how disappointed they were with Friday's game and then proceed to play another subpar game.

    This weekend’s games –

    Friday was lousy. Not quite as bad as Dirty calls it. Lack of effort, no puck control, stand around and watch. Wasn’t quite as bad as the Friday game against St. Lawrence, but close. The team that won was the one that wanted to win. Give UBC credit, they played hard.

    Saturday was better but plenty of room for improvement. The first three shots the Sioux took missed the net, and by a lot. In spite of that, the score could have been 10-3 (SOG was 53-17) if anybody in a green jersey would have been in position to get a stick on a rebound, and there were plenty of rebounds. It didn’t help that there were two goals waved off. The second one didn’t look like a high stick to me. It looked like penalties were going to lead to a loss – SFU made it look way too easy on their PP goals.
    As usual, there was a good contingent of Sioux fans – probably 50% of the crowd.
    Post-season play is not looking too likely.

    Agreed, although in the last game it was good plays by Stetcher and Ladue that led directly to two goals. All the D seem to have gotten more aggresive in trying to keep the puck in the zone rather than being so quick to back up.
    Yes, they're making plays and producing offense which this team needs without that trusted goal scorer(or 3) they generally have up front.
