    Good points. And yes, I would call those games virtual sell outs, although I never heard they stopped selling tickets. They were definitely full houses!

    Hopefully we do as well for Wisconsin this year. But I think the UND and UW series at the end of the year had attendance goosed by the return of Amanda Kessel.

    Attendance wasn't the only thing goosed by Kessel.

    I'd love to be behind the UW bench for those games.....

    If you want someone to pick you up tickets the day of the game send me a message with an email address & We can get them game day. My rates are just a bit more than TicketMashers. Can't promise behind the bench (that is where visiting parents often sit) But we could try

    Three weeks out now till the White Caps exhibition...Definitely getting antsy for the season to get started!
    There is a certain irony that appears lost on the NFL players who decided to kneel for the Star Spangled Banner and then stood for God Save the Queen.

    I know a person who arrived at the ticket window with cash in hand and who was turned away after being informed that there were no rooms available in the inn.
    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    I was watching one of the u18 games a couple weeks ago and a player jumped out at me so I looked up the number and it was Amy! I was pleased about that.

    As has been mentioned before and with risk of BC-like hyperbole in elevating this freshmen group, you will be pleased in that same way with the whole group of freshmen recruits for 2017/2018.

    Should we call Vegas now and book a Gopher/ Badger final?

    In the WCHA, yes. It always depends on seedings for the NCAA tournament.

    Yes. There's no way any eastern cupcake eater is touching UM or UW.

    Is that due to the so called scheduling snub or are you referring to the Frozen Four? Either way...

    Let the record show that I do not share the same degree of arrogance as our Badger friend Tim! As shelfit notes above much depends on the NCAA seeds, and of course injuries and other unknowns can play a role.

    I will, however, go out on a limb and say that before it's all done the Gopher's 2017 incoming class will prove to be right up there with the best they've had. The five who participated in the U18 series were all major contributors to their teams, and Brown would have been as well had she been just two days younger and eligible.

    In the badger thread Tim admitted he is trying to start a fight. I guess there isn't enough animosity on the boards. Thats rushing the season as the vitriol will flow naturally soon enough.
