Congrats to Denver! Sure, your program is a rival but that's only because your team(s) through the years play great hockey. Which is why I enjoy UND/DU games so much because they are always so dang competitive. Coach Monty cheered UND on last year and I had no problem reciprocating this year.
As Willy said though, UND now needs to win #9 and #10 soon. None of this tied business.
Congrats Pios. Deserved
Congratulations on the Championship!

College Hockey NewsToo soon to say "#TimeforNine"And, of course, Terry will soon face questions about his future, and tempations to leave for greener — as in, more lucrative — pastures in the NHL. Terry isn't really ready to face those kinds of questions now, but in the passion of the moment, he seemed ready to return.
"That was the most incredible experience of my life, and I want to come back and do it again."
If he does, Denver just might do so.
GO DU !!!

Not sure I buy it. Absolutely think he goes to NHL but not sure now and not sure about Florida. We shall see. https://t.co/yS2RwHTE1l— Jim Dahline (@jdahline) April 9, 2017
I was told today that DU Coach Montgomery will be the next Florida Panthers coach announced as soon as Monday. Seems quick, eh?— Jim Dahline (@jdahline) April 9, 2017
Even if Monty were to go to Florida, there is no way it would be announced before the celebration Tuesday. Not sure I find this, credible
Old Pio's favorite red head remembered in Chicago. Fitting that Pios' 8th Natty came under the Banner of the MOP of the 1969 Tournament, DU's 5th national championship, and Blackhawk fan favorite.

Congrats on #8, well deserved.
It's a little hard for Sioux/Hawks fans to see another school get #8, but this was a good result. DU has a first class coach and program, and they were clearly the best of the pack this year. The most deserving team often does not always (or even often) win this one-and-done tournament, and it's nice to see it happen when it does.
Unless it's the gophers, of course.
And maybe Old Pio just became a little less crotchety with this win, wherever he is. And I won't speculate where that might be.

Heard a number of comments regarding UMD's size advantage.
Current Pios--Sean Mostrom, 6'3"-200, and Erich Fear, 6'5"-217, could see more ice time next year. And the incoming recruiting class has more poundage.
