    Are there any Notre Dame Fans?

    Bueller?
    It seems Jan is sneaking around in here, too.

    To echo Slap Shot's point, I was going to mention that Gabe must be having to earn his spot in practice. I would assume he's not just sitting off to the side watching the other guys practice.

    I don't know a whole lot about the guy because I don't follow the recruits really at all. If he is as good as you boys say he is, then I'm excited to see him play!

    That's OK, we can depend on the JBSU fans to come in and comment. After all, they're obsessed.

    I think it's wrong of me to notice that his belt is undone. What was he doing just before this picture was taken? That or he hasn't made it up to the 200-level courses at Notre Dame yet. He might still be in Philosophy of shoes: Is there really a wrong foot?

    All I know is the Gophers are again on the front page of USCHO and all others can suck it.

    SS is correct and we know Lucia's got it well under control as he has experience and knowledge we don't.

    Yet, I think the fans do want to see what Gabe's got.

    You may be right. This thread has more posts than any other series this weekend.

    If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen...like bye learned last week.

Again I would suspect he plays this weekend unless Lucia simply wanted to give him the experience of traveling with the team, building camaraderie and seeing up close what he's missing.
    Fair enough.

    Not arguing that. I just don't understand how he can "earn" his way back when he's not playing. What's he been doing? Either he has served his suspension or he hasn't. If he still needs to "earn" Don's trust in regards to his behavior off the ice, that's one thing. But it sounded to me like Don was referring to earning his spot in the lineup from a playing standpoint. He needs to play at some point to do that. Rotate him in like he has with the other freshmen and see what he can do. If he doesn't earn more ice, that's on him.

    He should play him one night IMO. The kid could have taken the easy out and bolted to the CHL. He didn't. He honored his commitment and stuck around and took his punishment. He's been punished enough IMO. Start working him in (maybe not both nights) and see what he can do. If he earns more time, then give it to him.

    A dad and mom proud of their son, nothing really to see here.

    And it is tDon's alma mater, so I guess it shows twice the amount of stupidity on the part of some of your fans for getting their panties in a twist over it last year.
