    ND and NBC are locked into a TV deal until 2025, so I'm assuming NBCSN will pick up those games like last season with the second game on a live stream via the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com.

    That's unfortunate. Any additional details as to what happened? Hopefully nothing to do with a scooter...

    There will be some speed bumps like any season, but I don't suspect any major problems based upon the coaching change. Players have embraced the change and are excited for the season to start. Will Granato and the BADgers have another mediocre season?

    Agree with SteveO that the Gophers will finish better than 4th, and agree with Slap Shot that they will be motivated to prove it. They will also be extra motivated to show the new coaching staff that they are a key cog in the lineup, be on the first power play unit, etc.

    In the meantime I see that Pittlick and Sheehy have been named to the "B1G Watchlist" and the Gophers are projected to finish in the middle of the pack (4th) in the final league standings.

    While the methodology may or may not have been as simple as ranking per FF results from last season the fact is the conference is much stronger than it was even 3 years ago and the Gophers have a lot to answer for regarding last season. Add in the loss of some key players and a new coaching staff and there's a lot to be unsure of for this team.

    I personally don't think the losses are as significant as some at GPL - certainly no more than any strong program should expect during most off-seasons. The new adds imho have more potential as Fr. than last year's class (save Mittelsdorf) and I find it highly unlikely they have as little development as they did from two season's ago to last. Add in a likely better PP and offense...

    That said the 4th place pick doesn't offend me and I look forward to them proving it wrong.

    I have little confidence in the predictability of the B1G preseason poll. This was last season:

    2017-18 BIG TEN PRESEASON POLL

    Minnesota
    Notre Dame
    Wisconsin
    Penn State
    Ohio State
    Michigan
    Michigan State

    USCHO preseason poll appears to be based upon who went to the FF last season. Meh... Drop the puck and we'll see. I predict the Gophers will be better than 4th in the B1G.

When I got online I saw it was Saturday and completely forgot about the party and bought the Tix. I will still go if I can't sell them, so am only interested in selling for face value and all four. But thought I'd ask here. I do have a 'friend' (I put in quotes because he is a Bulldogs fan) who might know someone. I don't get many chances to go to games, so if I sell them, the weather better be nice, the jerk from work better not be there, and it better be a good party (will partly be determined by the jerk not being there).
