    And it looks like they're going to the FF.

    I don't see anyone stopping this Denver team.

    Careful...the game is played on the ice. I am rooting for Montgomery and Denver but they better be ready. AND if I know how Montgomery approaches it he will be as he has been around many good Coaches: Walsh & the Coach across from him in game one: Jackson.

    Not arguing with you- DU is an excellent team- but if I had to bet my life I'd go with Duluth. Harvard is really good and ND seems never to be outworked. Should be a great FF.

    Could be. To be honest I don't remember. I know it was packed and rowdy.

    That or Buck Bradley's. I sold my tickets to the UND v BC semifinal and sat at Buck's with a friend "preparing" for the Badger v Maine semifinal game that night.

    I'll be rooting for Denver because of the Jim Montgomery factor...but I do see one possible weak spot and that could be DU's goaltending...not that it is awful but compared to Notre Dames and MN/Duluth...when it comes down to winning the big game I always put my money down on Goaltending...so as much as I am hoping for a DU Championship...I see a UMD/Notre Dame Final...and I know I am leaving out Harvard but it is because I could care less about them and there arrogant fan base.

    Interesting article on CHN about Monty and Maine. He mentioned he was disappointed that Maine never contacted him for the coaching position.

    That was the buzz at that time. No idea as to the veracity of the (possible) news, but talk about Maine and Denver going in separate directions since then...

    I'll be surprised if Maine even squeaks-into the NCAA's before Monty wins one NC at Denver. The Red hire has proven to be a complete disaster, and a series of nails in the coffin of the program.

    Here's the 4 year records to date of both Coaches, with Montgomery having one if not two more games this season...and I do know after seeing this many will say that Denver was better off then Maine in terms of talent and agreed on that but here's the RECORDS: Gendron 49-82-17 -- Montgomery 100-47-18.

    I think Maine would have more wins with Jimmy, but I'm not sure how meaningful of difference it would be. I'm very confident history will be quite kind to Red. He has recruited a lot of good players and will be looked at as the man who got Maine back where they should be. I understand we live in a society where people want instant gratification but some things take time.

    Monty won Penrose. Now the whining can really begin. In case you guys didn't know, jimmy ain't walking thru that door. It's done. They hired Red. He hasn't lived up to the massive expectations we all have. So be it.

    Good for Montgomery...no whining here...he deserves it as he has worked to get to where he's at right now...experience as a College Player/ a little bit of NHL-AHL and over seas...plus he worked his way up the ranks in Coaching, volunteer to assistant to running a expansion USHL team and building it from the ground up...then he got his chance at Div.1 Hockey and was picked by and then he in turn went with the University that wanted him...Denver. Good 4 him is what I say.

    The player recruiting seems to be improving, but I feel as though this coaching staff doesn't have what it takes to develop the recruits into a winning program again. Hope they do well however.
    Being strictly a fan of the game without ever having earned a penny in hockey, cost me a lot of $ though, so without any real expertise, I feel the same as many state that the pool and level of D1 players has improved over the years with European kids, the general expansion of hockey throughout the US all the while without any growth in the number of D1 teams, excluding the major Jr league presence. So it makes sense that recruits will get better across the board, which makes the difference in coaching all the more important.
