  • 2019 Frozen Four: NCHC vs. Hockey East

    Now that the regionals are complete with 3 of the last 4 NCAA Champions returning, itís time for the following questions to be answered:

    Can Denver tie Michiganís record of 9 NCAA titles?
    Can Minnesota-Duluth become the first back-to-back Champions since Denver in 2004-05?
    Can Providence prove that they truly belonged by winning it all outside of New England?
    Can UMass complete a magical season with their first ever NCAA title?

    These and many other questions to be answered next week. Let the discussion begin...

      Given the momentum, I figured a NCHC team would be the first to get 10 titles. DU and UND may be one behind, but thereís two of them contending.
      I wanna go fast!

        Neutral rooting interests:

        UMass
        Pros: New blood, having a very exciting year, played an exciting brand of hockey in the regionals
        Cons: Anti-basketball school bias? M*******s?

        Providence
        Pros: Only one title, not exactly a blue blood, would be an underdog, would be interesting to see if they can win a tournament game outside New England for a change
        Cons: Anti-basketball school bias, very defensive team (for better and for worse)

        Denver
        Pros: Legitimately good team, smallest school there, young coach with a good story behind it
        Cons: Already has a ton of titles, coached by a ginger

        UMD
        Pros: Repeat champ? Less offensive than the gophers. A genuinely good team to watch
        Cons: Repeat champ?

        For my ranking, I go:
        1. #NewMass
        2. UMD
        3. Denver
        4. PROVICED SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF HOCKEY RAST
        If you want to be a BADGER, just come along with me

        BRING BACK PAT RICHTER!!!


        At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

        Canned music is a pathetic waste of your time.

                        Stay downtown. There are a couple of perfectly fine chains there with lounges and restaurants on-premises, and you can walk to much better dining very easily. There's a Frank Lloyd Wright house that's also within a walk, and that's fun to see if you enjoy novel architecture. The waterfront was renovated a few years back, and it's worth a stroll as well. And of course you have Niagara Falls and the aquarium there. The falls are truly exhilarating right up close. IDK if the Maid(s) of the Mist are operating this early -I doubt that- but Holy God, it's truly thrilling to be inside of American Falls, where the water is so loud that you can't hear yourself think.

                        Buffalo used to be a s-hole 15-20 years back, but it's a fun town now.

                            We can't find a hotel downtown this late in the game but will be 5-10 minutes away.

                            I like this idea!




                            As for the games I think UMass will handle DU and whomever scores two goals first will win UMD and PC.
