    Re: Minnesota at Notre Dame 11/8 & 11/9

    I told you guys that tDon would take this position of Guertler having to "earn his way back". If nothing else it was important for him to send a strong message, not just to him but to the whole team. Now I agree with mnstateOfhockey, that he's served his time and should be given the opportunity to play in at least one game this weekend, and see what he's got.

      Assuming he's had a good attitude throughout this...let him play! Here's the important parts of the Star Tribune article:

      Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson expects the No. 1 Gophers to carry plenty of momentum into South Bend. Jackson saw an offensively explosive team with a lot of speed in the Gophers' 6-1 victory over Boston College. He said his team will try to play with the Gophers instead of trying to slow the tempo of the game.

      “They lost a lot of great players and brought in a lot more,” Jackson said about the young Gophers team. “[This series] will be about puck possession and transition. I feel like it will be an up-tempo game.”

      Freshman forward Gabe Guertler will rejoin the Gophers this weekend at Notre Dame. Guertler was indefinitely suspended a month prior to the season after being arrested for a DWI (driving while impaired).

      Lucia originally stated Guertler's status would be revisited in November and made the announcement of his return on Wednesday.

      “We haven’t made a determination whether he will play this weekend, but he will be going on the trip,” Lucia said. “He’s gotta earn his way back, now.”
      Go Gophers!

Friday's series opener is set for 7:10 p.m. CT (NBC Sports Network, MyTalk 107.1 FM) while Saturday's game is slated for a 6:05 p.m. CT start time (1500 ESPN).

                  Now that the Gophers are out of the WCHA I have a feeling these series thread are always going to be 5 pages og Gophers fans talking to themselves. I guess last week there were 2 or 3 BC fans.

                  Are there any Notre Dame Fans?

                    The moment we see "Minnesota" in the title of any thread on USCHO, the rest of us stay away. You guys seem to be having fun without us...

                      You guys aren't exactly hiding this image, but since the mythical Notre Dame fans probably don't read GPL, I thought I'd share this here...

                        Why should we hide that image?

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

                        If he was wearing a Jan Brady jersey that would be different, that would be pretty embarrassing.

                          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.

                                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.
                                Gabe "should do" what he earns and I trust tDon will make the right call and put him in at the right time. I assume that's this weekend since he made the trek, but if he doesn't play there's zero reason to find fault.
