    Any attempt from me trying to play fantasy hockey would be an unmitigated disaster.

    And I'll start the thread soon, like in the next couple days.

If you're interested send me a message and I can send you an invitation.

    Minimal. Too early to say. I don't think we could have asked for better recruits. All seem to be standouts in their respective leagues and bring a diversified area of skills. One common thread seems to be they can score big goals. I like disciplined players, but PIM in juniors doesn't mean a lot as it depends on the role of the player with their team. I like the fact Alexander had 25 goals in the USHL. Bonis lead his team in goals and was a Captain. Ouellette 2nd on his and Kirzinger finished his season up strong with scoring and landed the MVP award. The fact is we need more scoring and the recruits fit that mold.

    Kyle Bonis, NAHL, Traverse City, '89, 5'11, 176#. Lead his team in goals and points. 57-30-27; 42 PIM, 216 shots, Captain of TC. (Canadian); goal scorer.

    Travis Ouellette, BCHL Penticton, 5'8", 165, '89 from Windsor, 60-25-28-53; 47 pim; 4th in team points and 2nd goals. Good speed and goal scorer.

    Eric Alexander, USHL -Chicago/Lincoln, '89 6'2", 200lbs., 60-25-24-49; 135 PIM, 2nd in pts/goals. from Michigan. USHL All-Star. goal scorer/physical.

    Matt Kirzinger-SJHL, '88, 5'10" 180lbs, Rt. C, 39-29-23-52; 57 PIM, 3rd or 4th on team for pts/goals. From Leroy, Saskatchewan. Did well in play-offs - MVP. fast.

    It will all come down to the transition of moving from juniors to college. October 4th should tell us more.

    Alexander should be the best player out of that group. He's a tough kid that knows how to score. Very effective player.

    Bonis is a skilled kid. Decent skater, good hands, good shot. There were some big time programs that were interested in him when he was younger. He didn't really find the right fit in the USHL and a lot of that interest cooled, but then he went to the NAHL and was very successful.

    I don't know much about the other two kids from Canada. Kirzinger is supposed to be really fast. Ouellette is small and has put up points everywhere he's been. No idea how that will transfer over though.

    Re: Ferris State Recruiting Class

    Guys- Im going to be coming to Big Rapids for the Miami-Ferris series in January. My old man played there in the 70's he always goes atleast once a year. Will be my first trip up, surprisingly, but looking forward to it.

    I saw that, and really wasn't sure personally, but looking back the past few years wow.

    Since 05-06, the year after our last cluster, Ferris is... 3-4-2 against Miami. Not bad given how our seasons have turned out. Against Ohio State? FSU is 6-2-2. If we include 04-05 the numbers do take a hitch (4-6-3, 8-7-2 respectively), but over the past few years that Buckeye number really sticks out.

    Also from the Miami media guide last year:
    Series History........................................... .............Miami leads 41-38-12

    I guess that'd be 41-39-13 now.

    I think your thoughts on our record are pretty well spot on.

    I don't know about expectations, I'll use the word predictions.
    1. a victory at the Badger Showdown (meaning the whole shebang)
    2. death, taxes and lots of penalties
    3. traveling to Fairbanks for the first round of the CCHA Tournament
    1) Might as well. We've won the thing the last two times we've been there.
    2) Yeah, that's a given. Unfortunately
    3) If UA's goaltender is back, they're finishing higher than 8th. But yeah, we're probably travelling in the 1st round. We might end up in Columbus.

    I think we're looking at 9th or 10th. We've got the scoring, talent, and experience to do more. The players have just got to pull their heads out of their rear ends when it comes to discipline and taking penalties.

    Two things regarding off ice happenings.

    I think the CCHA messed up on the UAH bid. I'm not sure how Kirinovic voted, but I'd bet he was against it. Hopefully they'll have time to fix it.

    I was impressed with all the promotions listed on the schedule this season. It really looks like they're trying. A free game for students to start the season! If Ewigleben can get a crowd I think on ice improvements are more likely to happen as well.

    Thoughts from Bulldog Nation?
    Agreed: UAH.

    The students' attendance does not appear to be the problem, at least from what limited games I've seen. But on the other hand, if this team is going to continue to go 12-19 like they did last season, I don't blame people for staying away. I'm guessing that the people of Big Rapids and the rest of Mecosta county have limited funds, and they're not going to blow their money on this team if it continues to underperform relative to their talent.

    Eric Alexander, Right Wing, Kentwood, Mich.
    6-2, 190 lbs., Shoots: Right, Date of Birth: 8/15/89
    2008-09 team: Chicago Steel, United States Hockey League


    I'm always skeptical of anyone that comes from less than an hour away. Hopefully Ouellette knows how to score, he has a good hockey name.

    Don't care. It's not a hockey rivalry.
