    Hey, I didn't design the arena. As Romey says, "If you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin'" and this isn't even cheating. It is completely legal. I even posted the applicable NCAA rink design rules/standards from the NCAA's own web site in the UNO arena thread that underscored this.

    Where is the boundary line between doing anything and everything that is allowed under the existing rules to exploit inherent advantages in doing so, and, "sportsmanship"? If the rules allow it, a lot of "somebodies" didn't think it was an unfair advantage. What is unsportsmanlike or unfair about following the existing rules, I ask you?

    By the way, I readily concede that arguments either way here have merit. And, I'm not necessarily an advocate here either way. But, the rules, as they currently exist, were followed.

      There was a Gopher-Bulldog game a few years back, I was watching on TV and the color guy (forget if it was Woog or post-Woog era) called out that UMD was sneaking guys out of the penalty box early and should be getting penalized for too many men on the ice. The old DECC had that same setup, with the visitors box on the opposite side of the ice from the home and penalty boxes. Eventually, at least one on-ice official caught them at this game and penalized them for it. The bulldogs were cheating, they were caught, and they paid the price.

        Now that Seeler plays for the goofers, are there any chippy/dirty players remaining on or new to the Omaha roster that St. Cloud has to look out for tonight?

            SCSU goes over to the MAC (Municipal Athletic Complex) in preparation for road NHL size games, probably only one or two practices in advance the week of.
            Forgot to mention, but this reminds me of a line from Craig Dahl back in the day. When playing an away game against an opponent with a 200x85 rink, he would move the team from the main rink in the NHC to the practice rink because "it feels smaller than the main rink."

            Oh, the Dahlie Llama was always good for something entertaining to come out of his mouth.

Kick butts out of conference (UNO is 8-0-0, currently) and play .500 or better in conference and you are in. Simple formula. If we make the tourney nearly every year and never win a conference championship that's a good trade as far as I am concerned.
              If you aren't in the hunt for the conference race, you are probably gonna be on the bubble sweating it out the last weekend of the season. The NCHC got lucky to get 6 teams in last year. If a couple upsets happen in the conference tournaments, ECAC and Hockey East have been great out of conference this season, say ECAC gets 3 or 4 teams in, HE gets 4 or 5, Big Ten gets 1 or 2, Atlantic Hockey gets 1, WCHA gets 1 or 2 you are down to 4 teams getting in from the NCHC.

                      Funny response, but I disagree. Sounds like it became a pretty chippy game as it progressed. Peterson knocked out by Maverick who got away with cheap shot.

                      St. Cloud has to stop ringing the pipes around Omaha's goalie and bury this team tomorrow night.

                      Think I'll take my wife to the game tomorrow at the Herb Brooks Center.

                        Third period got chippy. Glad to see Charlie rebound after taking a big hit in goal. Everyone at the top keeps winning. Lets get the sweep tomorrow.

                          Sounds like Peterson out till after the break.
                          Bury the chances again tomorrow.
                          IMO would have been the same with Wenninger in net.

                            Yeah, Judd went really hard into the boards. Hopefully not a broken collarbone or separated shoulder.

                              Peterson wasn't the victim of a cheap shot. The UNO guy barely touched him, but Judd's skate caught a groove or he toe-picked at the same time, and that launched him into the boards at a bad angle. They showed the replay on the broadcast, and it was just an unfortunate and scary play.

                                Wenninger starts and they still lose. Massa start and they lose. Faulkner starts and they still lose. I dont think UNO has a goalie in their team's history that changes that outcome
                                tUMD is Jan Brady per Brenthoven. Whew.... thanks for clearing THAT up.
