    Actually, he's 20 -- he'll turn 21 in January. But I think you're right in saying that some freshmen are older than he is!

    Geez, every time I want to hate you, you come out and say something nice!

    Isn't Greenham 23 or something like that?

Howver, his goal against RPI was right in front of me and I still can't believe he scored that from his belly with a defender on top of him. Dion's penalty shot was amazing when you see it first hand and even better when they played it in slow motion.

    jimjamesak, taking bad penalties is, imo, the biggest thing holding you back from being a decent threat in the WCHA. Of the Seawolf games I've watched the last few years, it seems like almost every game there's either a 5 minute major or some other completely boneheaded minor. Case in point on Saturday when Kevin Clark, for no apparent good reason, shoved a RMU player into the net after play was whistled dead.

    Just my observation. Good luck with the Siouxies this weekend, I might go check out one of the games if I get bored.
    Clark's penalty was stupid, almost as stupid as the penalty that RPI took toward the end of the UA_ game. That allowed UA_ to score their only goal for the tie, otherwise RPI probably would have won.

    2. It was not their fault. We take too many penalties. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many. It was a problem last year. It's a problem this year. Needs to be solved, obviously hasn't yet.
    I didn't say the UAA players were faultless. I admitted they took some stupid penalties, but come on, when Doyle Woody says that a five minute major on Kane was "a marginal call, at best", you know there was a problem. That led to a 2 man advantage, and it was a terrible call. If you are going to penalize a player for 5 minutes, you better get it right.

    It's so much easier to win when you have two 2 man advantages, and play half the game with an extra skater. I'm not saying UAA didn't take some stupid penalties, they did. But that 5 minute on Lafranchise was a terrible call. It was in open ice, not into the boards, and should have been a 2 minute penalty not 5.

    I think Prices have been increasing every year for the past 5 (I may be wrong). My fiancé and I got our tickets at the patty for $68 also. I think the general tickets are high. Actually ever since they went with Ticketmaster, and they get to tack on an extra $4, the prices seem high. Considering Alaska has lost jobs for 5 months in a row now, I think it's about time to lower the costs. People are not going to spend that kind of money in these times. We make more than enough money, but have decided to cut back on Ice Dogs games (never UA games) due to the ever increasing prices. Oh we were duck hunting in Delta on Saturday, and didn’t have time to go home for dinner before the game. We got a cheese burger, pulled pork, and one diet coke……………..$16.75. Almost spent $100 for the tourney (never did make it to the beer garden either night thank god). Ouch.
    Don't tell SMG that parking is still free at the Carlson. Most of last season I would buy my tickets online from Ticketmaster before flying up there; I finally came to the conclusion that it was just as easy, with slightly less service charges, to just buy tickets the day of the game at Fred Meyer. Hardly anybody in Fairbanks ever buys seats in advance to anything so it's still easy to snag some good lower-level seats on game day without having to stand in line in the cold.

    I bought mine at the Patty Center, tournament package general admission was $34 total. A few bucks more than buying two tickets for a weekend series, but not bad considering you got two extra games included.
