    UND Players finding new schools

    Losing a top 5 program like UND is a huge step in the wrong direction for women's hockey. In that process, many current players and commits need to find new homes should they want to continue to be a student athlete. Please post here of any new news on these girls finding a new school and as a hockey community wish them success.

    Brad Schlossman of the Herald tweeted this.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    With Holy Cross' decision to move to D-I, it'd be great if they could get some players from North Dakota, even if the facility is a downgrade from the Ralph.

    While this isn't a great outcome for women's hockey, the dispersal of UND players to other teams will have the effect of spreading their penalty minutes across a wider base.

    It appears Willow Slobodzian has committed to Cornell. Not sure if she is still able to get through admissions for this upcoming season or if she will be in Cornell's 2018-19 recruiting class.

    2016/17 total penalties: ND 161, Wisconsin 159, "Harrington's Hackers" 136.

    Roque 19, Clark 18, Kolstad 17, Pankowski 16 penalties. Looks like last season Kolstad would have fit right in with the BADgers.

    Democrats are making a big deal out of the Russian involvement in our elections to deflect attention away from all the Messicans and other non citizens who vote in our elections.

    Harrington's hackers concussed ARD with as blatant intent to injure knee to the head as you will ever see and ARD missed 5 games. Kolstad concussed Channel with an elbow to the head and she missed 4 games late in the year.

    Cut John some slack. He used to coach men's hockey so he hasn't learned the women's game yet and his fat friend he hired as his "top" assistant doesn't know anything about women's hockey either. Poor Shari is outnumbered there. Can she really be expected to teach the game to an Olympic legend and an unknown gymnast?!

    Okay, I understand North Dakota's penalty disease. It's always been endemic to their region and maybe it is spreading now to Mankato. But what I don't understand is how Wisconsin could have 50 more penalties this past year than did that "rodent" team you so despise. In four of their games this season Wisconsin had a combined total of 20 penalties that they won by a combined score of 31 to 0. Is it simply a lack of discipline at times or is it because they feel they're so far ahead a few hacks or checks don't matter or is it something else?

    UND had 25 more penalties than the Mavs for an additional 75 minutes, so some naughty girls at UND
    the player that took out Desbiens only had 4 penalties all year
    and it happened after a Badger hit the Mavs goalie
    so it sounds like it was more a case of losing your cool and retaliating rather than a bad apple

    in fairness, you should list the number of penalties by the other four teams in those games
    it could be that the other teams were frustrated and decided to play rough, and the Badgers responded in kind

    I think some of the UW players get frustrated with all the clog and grab and lose their focus, mainly Clark and Pankowski. Roque played boys HS hockey in MI, I hope she can adjust out of taking the physical type penalties.

    The four different opponents had 15 total penalties to the 20 for Wisconsin. Shots on goal were 185 to 69 in the Badgers favor. I would think that with the puck consistently in their opponents d-zone that the Badgers would have had fewer penalties. The 9 penalties the Badgers committed in their 7-0 shellacking of the Mavericks did skew the stats a little, in all fairness. Something must have po'ed the Badgers in that game. The other 3 games the total penalties were the same for both teams.

    All the best to young Kolstad and hope that all of the UND players find a home. And as for Timothy, I would rank the Badgers right up there in terms of dirty teams to play against but I guess it's acceptable because they win most of the time!

    I don't like the chippy play by any team, period. I'd like UW to cut down the chippy penalties for sure. I think some of the players get frustrated by all the O zone clogging and getting so many shots blocked. They need to trust the process, trust their own skills and their teammates and everything will turn out as it is supposed to.

    I do have an ax to grind with Mankato on the ARD injury. That could have easily ended her career. Just ask Amanda Kessel and Stephanie McKeough to name 2 about the effects of concussions. Any player that intentionally gives a blow to the head needs to be suspended for a long time. The WCHA need to take player safety seriously.

    With UND leaving, Wisconsin has the crown as the most penalized team in the league. That is something I'd like to see MJ and crew fix, though the Wisconsin Wackers has a nice ring to it. Not sure about Johnson's Wackers, however.

    What I've noticed more than anything is that the Badgers are very adept at using their sticks, not so much to hack, chop and slash, but to disrupt and often prevent their opponent from making the desired play. They also seem to know when to "let go", doing just enough stick-work so as not to draw a whistle. Of course as the stats clearly show, perfection of this "skill" often eludes them.
