  • The site shows Hickel and West as the assistants. I take it this means that Wisniewski's volunteer stint is over (or maybe he plans to help out when he can, as opposed to a more formal role)?...

    replied to Finally an 8th team for the WCHA?
    Over the years, there have been games in both St. Cloud and Mankato where UM has had more fans in attendance than the hosts. The Concrete Center and All-Seasons were quirky rinks, so not quite home games, but definitely an edge in support....

  • I assumed that the motivation for backing off on requiring handshakes now was Covid-19 related. In terms of the long term, I think that a good compromise might be to only shake hands at the conclusion of a series. For example, why shake hands after Game 1 of a best-of-three playoff series? Shaking on...

  • The article in Dave's link includes:Having NCAA OT rules align with other league's OT rules is important because why? None of these other leagues use the PairWise Rankings, so why try to align with them if we're going to hold onto that misguided system. You would think they would see that we're already...

    Understood. Cornell was just more dependent on their seniors when looking at last year compared to the rest, so they make a good Exhibit A....

    Very true. The Big Red had their first crack at the tourney as the top seed (although all that gained them was a first round versus Mercyhurst, and the last two times they hosted the Lakers didn't go so well.) As you suggest, with everything that Cornell graduated, it will be hard pressed to repeat...

    Note that I didn't say anyone was putting me at risk. I don't think that I am positive for Covid-19, but I don't know that for a certainty at any moment. So I choose to wear a mask in situations where I'm not socially distanced, in the hope that it will help protect others. I'm not presuming that I'm...

  • Many new programs have phased in scholarships over the years, in part to balance the classes, and to provided more time to secure funding of the scholarships. St. Thomas is different than new programs in that it already has a women's hockey roster.

    It will be interesting to see how quickly...

    When I was young, there was much controversy regarding the wearing of seat belts. Eventually, public safety arguments won out over arguments of personal freedoms, and seat belts became mandatory. When I first started working, my boss could call me into his office for a meeting and chain smoke throughout...

    One problem is that it isn't 100% cut and dried as to who is/isn't at risk. People who didn't seem to be at risk have died from this thing. A lot of front-line workers have died. And who knows what the possible long-term impact might be on an exposed person's lungs, for example.

    For now,...

  • At this point, we don't know how the world beyond sports will be impacted. Should a student rush to start college this fall, when there is at least a decent chance that students will be sent home again and teaching will regress to online-only? In some fields, that represents a greater impact than in...
