    It would be so nice to know if Bongo is out for the year or we can look forward to his return. He is natural goal scorer like Sam Anas was in college. Need him in the lineup to help find the back of the net. Gosh the Clarkson play—by- guy is hard to listen to. They need an analyst so you hear his voice only 70% of the time.

    Solid points! Dont think anyone realizes how many stud players we have on this team. We dont have a Priske, yet a crew that are all capable. We get the pistons firing in the right direction, could be fun to watch.

    Great effort by all this weekend. They have been fun to watch (I'd really like to see them in person) and the stats seem to speak for themselves. Tufto is a magician with the puck. Petro has really solidified his game and looks much more confident and relaxed between the pipes. Together, they have what it takes to lead this team anywhere. The supporting cast has been good with Burgart probably the biggest surprise. Smilanic has really been impressive and will only get better. I'd like to see a little more out of the 3rd and 4th lines. Defense has tightened up. I can't believe the improvement in Lee's game. Considering his size, he plays big on the back end and has some offensive flair as well.

    Another big test this coming weekend with 3 on the road.
    It's actually amazing to watch this group develop. I haven't been around the QU community that long, yet Rand has complete trust in the kids he recruits and his system. Takes a little time, yet they are buying in. Doesn't mean a natty, yet does mean consistent good hockey year after year. When you look at these kids stats on national level, very impressive. This year especially will take some heat due to our conference make up, yet these kids are getting in a groove.

    Definitely a natural scorer. Hopefully FL thinks he needs a little more time. I hope/think we’ll get at least one more year with him.

    All spot on points. Odeen is not only leading the nation (By a mile) in points, he’s also the only one in the top 10 PPG, with more than 10 played. Can you imagine if Bonjo was in the lineup and healthy? They’d probably be Top 5 and Odeen would probably be averaging 2-3 PPG. I suspect they’ll continue to find their game without him. Desi, DeJong, that Bum Smilanic (Haha Mark), all seem to be a very good supporting cast. KP will no doubt steal a few games as well. He’s matured so much. Great to see him succeed.


    This team is very good. Know John would disagree. Lets see how it shakes out.

    Slu with another upset win.....cats and dogs living together. Been oversaid too many times, yet a crazy season. Think with Petro, Odeen leading the charge its going to be interesting. Great to see Skyer back on the board. This team has depth, and look at the stats. Their top players are also top players in the country. Lets stay healthy, love to get Bonjo back....this is a team to get excited about. Wish I could see it live, yet happy the boys are doing what they are doing. I watch a lot of college hockey, Notre Dame/MN replay this morning. Our guys are there. And Petro, can be the difference. We haven't seen his best.

    Agreed on the big weekend. They could have mailed it in when Tufto went down (still trying to figure out that non-call) but hunkered down and gritted it out. Having him come back was an even bigger boost. The kid is also on fire!

    Smilanic seems to be coming into his own, and what more can be said of De Jong and Burghart? Metsa, Chorney, and Lee on the backend are playing great as well. I'd like to see a few more guys get their games going (Leah and Brind'Amour come to mind) but overall they seem to be coming together. Just need to clean up some of the defensive turnovers.

    Other the the 2 soft starts (Fri & Sat), Petro has been solid between the pipes. He won us the game yesterday and gave us the chances we needed in the other 2.

    When these guys find their stride, watch out. They'll be fun to watch.
    There is so much character on this team. From Bonjo going down to Chorney sitting in the stands for 2 years then coming on strong. Tufto is a fantastic leader by example. Get a little secondary scoring, clean up the d zone....I agree, could be very interesting. And.....No one will see us coming
