    He is from up north, so I wouldn't put it past him. I wonder if he tries to yank the cop's shirt up over his head followed by some uppercuts, screaming, "putting on the foil coach".

    I don't know about you guys but I've been waiting to hear something on Cepis and I looked at Hammy's Twitter today and he had something.

    https://twitter.com/hammyhockey

    Early reports make it sound like Cepis could really help out when he becomes eligible. Fast, skilled, and a "pest".
    Needless to say, I like it.

    Don't forget telling the cops that if they let him go, he'll give them one billion dollars.


    God, I love that story.

    Is he not eligible until 2nd semester?

    The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center..... I wonder who originally came up with that.

    Correct. He transferred after the season started last year.

    Yeah... since SCSU doesn't have ANY goalscorers, clearly offense is going to be their downfall this year.
    Whatever, cling to hope that your team is going be any good at all and that Lee is going to take you to the promised land. Hard to score when you spend the whole game in your end cause your defense sucks, but dont let the truth get in the way of you having a chip on your shoulder!

    Watching SCSU fans all atwiter about their upcoming season is like watching Lucy holding that football and inviting Charlie Brown to come and kick it:

    Regardless of what happens in the interim, you know how it ends.

    BTW this metaphor works for the Vikings, too.

    The Number 1 lesson a goalie is taught--put your stake in the ground, so to speak, and make the player react to what you give him. Number 2 lesson a goaltender has, take away the short side on hard angles. Shooters, instinctively like the short side and it's the first thing they'll look for. 9 times out of 10 players looks to the short side first and if it's not there he'll try and go for something else (across the body, dish it through the slot, around the net, etc). Sniper's score all the time on hard angles, and that's what they get paid for. Show me a goal from a hard angle that scores on the short side and I'll show you

    1) A goalie trying to do too much.

    2) A goalie cheating because someone's on the weak side

    3) A player making the goalie react and not vice-versa (trying to take away the five hole, down on his knees, but not sucking to the pipe, etc).
    1) Your original post did not reference hard angle shots...just short side goals
    2) Anyone who has ever played forward knows that a goaltender has more then the 5 holes a shooter tutor has...
    3) Peter Sejna won the Hobey Baker by scoring hard angle short side goals...even with the goaltender hugging the post.

    So I'll repeat...a sniper can score a short sided goal with a good shot regardless of the goaltender's position.

    Yeah cause a team that returns more than 80% of it's scoring from last year and graduated one defenseman off a defense that had 4 first year players can't possibly get any better.
    Nice assumption there Handy, I mean if you can assume SCSU can't improve, then we can assume the Gopher defense is still going to suck and Kangas will be like he was last year right?

    Your analogy sucks... SCSU fans would be Charlie Brown, the one with optimism that this'll be the time. Lucy would be everyone else.

    But thanks for playing, I hope you enjoy your lovely parting gifts.

    Scooby...here's his former coach's assessment and some more info on Jacob Cepis. What struck me as significant was BGs head coach Scott Paluch praising him for his ability to find open spaces in the opponents' defense and his confidence while going to the net.

    Although Cepis was one of BG's best offensive players, he struggled most of his last season and had just one goal and four assists in 18 games. He has outstanding speed and skill and earned Central Collegiate Hockey Association all-rookie honors as a freshmen. He's a good student/athlete (3.67 GPA in HS and 3.0 GPA at BG in sport management).

    He also had internal conflicts at BG and upon leaving said, "I'm not happy with hockey right now. There are some decisions you have to make in your life. You have to be happy and you want to do well and you want to be the best you can be. This is what's best for me right now."

    I'm sure after sitting out a while he's anxious to get back in form. It remains to be seen how long that will take, where he fits in and how he adapts to the Gopher system.

    That's my point, Einstein.

    And like Charlie Brown, that optimism turns into an effort with no reward.

    And Lucy isn't everyone else. It's your hockey program.

    Think whatever you want...I am not one of the people spouting off that the Gophers are going to be great...in fact right now I dont have much confidence in them at all.

    And what does bringing back a bunch of scoring mean? Who brought back the most scoring last year? And sorry but your defense stunk last year and I dont see them improving enough for you to be a darkhorse.

    My understanding is no. Second semester (Jan. 2 against BOWLING GREEN ) for the Dodge holiday tourney is the first game he will wear the "M".
