    Why not? I read an article that a ten year old is getting offers for football. Seriously! http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...26-column.html

    Knowing both guys and since they entered the NHL at the same time, I've always kept track of how close their stats are. Joe's stats are very close to Phil Kessel's, but we hear more about Phil for some reason. (One guess for me is east coast vs. west coast.)

    In 817 games Joe: 298 goals + 339 assists = 639 points.

    In 845 games Phil: 300 goals + 362 assists = 662 points.

    With a 28 game difference, I'd **** near call it a draw. Quite amazing considering publicity.

    I hope so as well, he is one of the nicest guys to go through the program. The only thing is the NHL is increasingly becoming a young mans game....and a very fast one. He already is an average skater in his lower 30's. It is going to be tough to keep up.

Does Chelios have the most career NHL points at 948 or am I missing someone? Joe Pa has 637 pts, I don't think he will be able to get up to 900 pts. Heatley had 791 career NHL pts.

    Kunin got his first goal last week.

    That is correct. Gary Suter had 844 (17 seasons) and Scott Mellanby had 840 (21 seasons). That Suter played 9 less years then Chelios shows what a prolific producer he was from the blue line.

    We've had CC and Denver in recent years. We had a 4 year rotation with them between 2013/2014 - 2016/2017.

    UND; we are in a 4 year contract with them right now. They can probably make more money by getting a smaller school to do a 2 for 1 or even a 1 for none.

    UMD; it would be nice, but we'd probably have to schedule them 1 for 1.


    I like that the Eaves administration made a bit of a push 5-6 years ago to get some creative scheduling with the BU/BC 4 year deal and the Denver/CC 4 year deal. Mostly highly regarded schools.
    To a lesser extent, I liked the NMU rotations, the St Lawrence/Clarkson 4 year deal, the current BC/Merrimack 4 year deal. St Lawrence, Clarkson, Merrimack do nothing for me, but they were an interesting change of pace.

    I wonder what it would take to do a 4 year deal with NoDak/UMD. It would be a hike to get between Grand Forks and Duluth overnight or in the early AM, but it could make for some nice road trips.
    Maybe a UMD and BSU rotation would be easier.

    would be cool to do a round robin type thing with UW and Goofs, ND and Denver and have each school host one weekend every year and play ND and Denver and they each play us and Goofs. Mini tournament thing that only ties up one weekend.

    Per Milewski's State Journal article, this series will be the 3rd year of a 4 year contract with NoDak. Previous games were in 14-15 and 15-16.
    NoDak will be an away trip next year with nothing guaranteed after that. Todd mentions that NoDak just signed a new contract with Minnesota, so they might not want to tie up too many NC games.

    This puts confirmed future games as:
    18-19
    BC (year 3 of 4 year BC/Merrimack contract)
    @Clarkson/St Lawrence (year 3 of 4 year Clarkson/St Lawrence contract)
    @North Dakota (year 4 of 4 year North Dakota contract)

    19-20
    Clarkson (year 4 of 4 year Clarkson/St Lawrence contract)
    @Omaha (return trip of 1 for 1 contract, hosted in 16-17)
    @Merrimack/BC (year 4 of 4 year BC/Merrimack contract)

    Per Todd M, Tarek Baker with an apparent knee injury at today's practice, was helped off the ice. Sonuva*****, the kid is really impressive. I love his work ethic.

    Tough weekend personally for him not to play, if it's that bad. :-(
