    Re: Minnesota @ Mankato State of Minnesota: 12/3-12/4

    The Gophers at this point last season were 5-8-1 overall, 3-6-1 in the WCHA. They are 8-5-1 overall, and 5-4-1 in the WCHA thus far this year. I initially was pleased with the apparent improvement, but then I remembered that at this point last year we had already played UND, UMD, Wisconsin, and Denver. Therefore, I am holding my breath.

      Still love the Mavs, just don't contribute here. Still listening or following them on the mobile during games. I hope Corey Leivermann posts a big weekend!

        Grats to the Mavs on the win.

        Our PP going 0 for 5 or whatever it was didn't do us any favors and Cook made some huge saves as well late in the game.

          Wow, the Mavericks look 100% better than they did last time they were in Kato. Maybe last weekend's sweep was a little bit more playing well than playing a bad team than we all thought. Maybe the season can be salvaged??

            I miss Kato... it's been better then a year since I've been out to see the purple warriors play in the Cell... looked good tonight, darn good. Made this old warhorse smile that's for sure...

            Goofs are solid, but I think this is another under-performing squad for Lucia (sorry Goofer nation, it's all smoke and mirrors)

                You were also out of position due to Hill's atrocious coaching.

                  While this may be true one also can't deny the losses of key players every year (Leddy, Schroeder, Budish etc...) with the parity that is College Hockey these days it's tough to overcome that kind of turnover. It's not an excuse I know other teams lose players early as well but it makes building a winning team much more difficult after losing high end guys like that.

                    Denver lost more talent than most teams this past season (aside from maybe UW), and they are leading the WCHA currently.

                      It wasn't a total loss, MN successfully killed off all five powerplays.

                        I think Denver is an anamoly. Every friggin' year they somehow find a way. I can't explain it. It's gotta be something in the water. Gwoz is a great coach, but is he THAT great? I dunno.

                        Either way, I'm glad I missed last night's game. Could have been another Mankato Meltdown night. We'll see if I dare watch tonight.

                          I think Denver is somewhat overrated early on. I think they're probably a 3rd or 4th place team. They've had a somewhat easy schedule in the WCHA so far (Wisconsin at home, home/away with CC, home against Mankato and Bemidji, that accounts for 13 of their 17 points). They only have 7 home games left in conference, and play 10 on the road. If they hold on to the top spot, I'll be very impressed.

                              Update from Jeff O. on GPL:

                              Looks like Hoeffel is a game time decision. Pat White and Hoeffel will both warm up and if Hoeffel can't go, White will. If Hoeffel is in, White is out.


                              Please please please be healthy so I don't have to watch cement feet again tonight.

                                Kangas or Patterson?

                                Im guessing Patterson.
