  • Michigan Hockey 2020-2021 Yost town feels like a ghost town

    So, uh, what happened to the season thread? I couldn't find it. I also understand our friend alfa got himself ban-inated. Not sure what he did, wish we were going to Yost so I could ask.

    I understand not wanting to talk about the last few games, but we still need a season thread.

    GOOD QUESTION I've been wondering the same thing. There must be some connection between Alfa getting banned and the thread disappearing. Was he the one who started the thread this season?

    As for not wanting to talk about the last couple games, there is some value to getting the sour taste out of our collective mouths.

      Okay, does ANYONE have ANY idea when the remainder of the schedule will be released? According to the schedule on the MGoBlue website there aren't any more games scheduled this season but we all know there will be more. The B1G website hockey schedule just sends you to each individuals' website.

        A "reliable source" says it will be out before Christmas. I heard a rumor that Beecher and Bordeleau did not make USA World Junior team due to covid issues. Any truth to that? Sorry to hear about Alfa. Always enjoy his posts. Is he eligible to return?

              Ban hammer is the ban hammer, even if there's no real idea what happened.

              Alas, all is not lost.....

              For the upcoming half of the season- it's hard to judge what we will be getting. We've seen brilliance, and we've seen them struggle, and honestly, the curious one is Mann- he was so solid last spring and the beginning of the season that it seemed like a lock that he would be repeating that trend. But he's been pulled a few times this season- which means that both he and the D are struggling. Sometimes.

              Hopefully, Mel's second half boost happens again, and the team surges after the holidays.

                  Your players at the World Juniors did us all proud! After rooting so hard for them it's going to seen strange for awhile going back to being rivals.

                    Back to play tonight starting a home and home with Sparty.

                    One of the biggest college hockey rivalries out there, especially in the B1G. So it should be in BTN, right? Nope. Michigan wrestling v Rutgers, Have to have a subscription to BTN+ to see tonight's game. Tomorrow afternoon we can see the game from EL. Afternoon.

                    Man, I could have sworn that B1G hockey is popular.

                          I've had season tix since the late '80s and I honestly don't remember one.

                            Man, how many games have we lost after a blowout win.... Worse that the team lost after going ahead late in the game. Lots of lessons need to be learned.

                              That REALLY hurt.
                              Leading with 2:02 left in the game then give up 2 and lose in regulation.
                              OUCH!
