    Exactly. The problem isn't her ability, it is what she is able to accomplish in relation to her ability. When she arrived, I would never have believed that she'd be this deep into her career and still looking for her 100th point. She has hands like Krissy Wendell. However, she holds the puck so long...

    MSU blocked a lot of shots and contested better in their own zone, but UM was very sloppy in their own end, and just not strong enough on the puck. The more deserving team today likely won.

    This I agree with, but I think it is true of a lot of Gophers. Take #16 for example. Pass the puck and get it back, put a shot on net and hunt a rebound, something simple. One doesn't have to try to stickhandle through the other team, eventually turn it over, and have your teammates standing flat footed...

    The Buckeyes are at Mankato on Feb 4/5 and Bemidji on Feb 11/12. If it is ever going to happen, that week would be the time, as it wouldn't involve an extra flight. Normally, one would say that tOSU players would miss too much school, but after two years of distance learning, is that even a thing a...

    Perhaps, and I know the cringe-worthy plays of which you speak. At the same time, you have to also give her credit for the positive plays that she makes. She's tops on the team in +/- for a reason.

    Speaking of the plus side of things, I thought that the back check yesterday looked very...

    When RIT played a series in Minnesota, the junior goalie who started today was much stronger, but they seem to want to play their freshman for some reason....

    Stecklein didn't have to wait too long to get noticed, as her first Olympic berth followed her freshman year, but in general, it seems to me that Team USA has always had an affinity for offensive D, more so than Hockey Canada does. D don't score that much when these two clash with championships on the...

  • I doubt it would help the starting goalie's confidence all that much to give up a dozen goals as Badger fans chant "Sieve!" at her. I kind of understand why these games are scheduled, but by the third period, both teams just want them to be over....

  • Per Dan's play by play on Saturday, St. Thomas was missing six players from their lineup, so it's hard to be too deep even for a team not in it's first D-I season. The Gophers were missing at least four people from their roster, six if you count Lindsay and Ostertag who have been reported to be done...

    I don't know for sure, but the transfer portal is an NCAA process, while the sit-a-year rule came from the WCHA. Maybe transfers can now play, but only in 3-on-3 OTs!...

  • Your post says more about the state of hockey in the East than anything WCHA fans could say, given the fact that you feel a need to try to poach teams from the WCHA.

    OSU fans -- what say you? Do you consider yourself a Western team, or would you rather be lumped in with those in the Ea...

    Good question; I don't remember anyone, although there have been sisters who have gone on either side of the border. Of course, she hasn't played yet. I'm assuming that the WCHA transfer rule is still in effect and Tella J. will have to sit out once she gets to Madison (if that's where she's bound),...

  • Your team is short bodies on the blue line. One of the role players is forced into taking shifts at D to help the team. One would expect that a player who is playing somewhere that is not her natural position is going to make some mistakes. Do we really need to point them all out?...

  • No, I didn't close my eyes. The problem with the high stick calls is that they almost never change the call made on the ice, because the replay in two D has to overturn a call originally made by an official in three D. Coach Frost said that was one of the reasons why there was talk a few years ago to...

    When a team is ranked, it is shown with its ranking (e.g., #1 Wisconsin). "RV" is used for "Receiving Votes" to show a team is not ranked but is receiving votes in the poll(s)....

  • I thought that the second goal for UW was more questionable; they reviewed to see if it crossed the line (it did), but the key to the play was Wheeler running into the goalie and knocking her into her net. Too much to ask the WCHA refs to follow so many moving parts.

    As for the 1st goal,...

    It's a complicated problem, though. If you start out testing positive and assuming that you have Omicron, but then it turns out that you actually have Delta, that makes it harder to manage. People wind up in the hospital quite regularly from Delta. I wish as much as you do that this was in our past...
