    I think our backups are a lot better prepared facing our guys every day in practice than facing guys you described as not D1 hockey players.
    While I would agree that the talent level on Makato's roster is far above that of StT, I would disagree that playing in practice against better players is better experience than game play against lower talent players. Nothing in a practice, scrimmage, intra-squad, exhibition, etc will ever be a game situation. It is clear that MSU plans to ride McKay either to success or until he breaks down. He could take them to the promised land, or it could be a huge issue if McKay gets injured and MSU loses key games with an inexperianced back-up in net.

      It's also clear Mankato doesn't have much experience playing against Rico. No way I'd leave my #1 in for two games if I thought there was that much talent gap in front of them.

      • So, McKay just HAD to start those two games vs UST to pad his stats then gives the backup a start vs LSSU (due to "illness")... Bet they wish this kid had a start under his belt before giving up a goal on his first SOG he ever faced lololol

            Five players were out with illness tonight. So why do you put McKay's illness in quotes? You really need to stop obsessing about this. Yeah, he gave up a goal on the first shot he faced because he didn't have "a start under his belt." That's it. He was fine. He gave up one goal all night. I doubt that the coaches are sitting around saying "damn, we lost because the goalie wasn't prepared."
            My guy is a hard-nosed hockey player who is not afraid to crash the net. Your guy is a goon who runs the goalie.

              Y'all won't shut up about how McKay keeps getting screwed over for the Richter, so this is what you get when Mankato puts his stats (starting him vs UST) over the long-term good of the team. Flipping to see the goal, then the end of the game was almost better than watching Northern kicking the crap out of BG...

                Give it up. You can't have a rational discussion with someone that dumb. He actually argued that St. Thomas isn't a D1 team, and that's why playing our backup goalie against them would get that goalie ready for a D1 game. ???? Now he's arguing that a goalie who gave up one goal (on a breakaway, no less, by LSSU's best player) cost us the game. It's a special level of stupid. You can't reason with it.

                • Honestly I'm more concerned that BSU managed to hurt their tournament chances by losing a winnable game last night. Maybe they were over-confident, I don't know, but those things come back to haunt you. ask BG.

                      That you don't comprehend the intensity difference between practice and a game tells me all I need to know about your hockey IQ. Several others agreed with me. \_(ツ)_/

                        • College hockey news reported today that NMU's win was because Duluth played the backup. Whereas last week, when Mankato, then number 1, played without 4 or 5 of their top players, it was not mentioned at all. Bias maybe?

                            Is this the "because they played the backup" tweet you're referring to?

                            My honest opinion? I'd be highly surprised if anyone at CHN watched a second of the game. Pretty natural reaction to make that assumption. Call it bias? I suppose. Duluth has earned bias the last 5 years with a Frozen Four every year it's been contested & 2 Natty's.
