    I think there is nuance her that Granato alludes to in the article. Connely can't be on the ice during the actual team practice (i.e. designated practice time with the coaches.) But, since he isn't a coach, I'm pretty sure that means he CAN spend time on the ice outside of the designated coached practices with just the goalies (much like the team is allowed to work on-ice without the team's coaches, but with external coaches, former teammates, etc. during the summer or outside of practice, or how they can work with UW strength and conditioning staff (but not coaches) outside of the designated practice times. So, in this case, Connely's limits for not being able to coach "during practice," could actually allow for more actual goalie coaching outside of designated official practice time, because he is not a coach. You know, the usual, completely sensical NCAA rules...

    From the article: "UW has a former goalie on its staff in director of hockey operations Shane Connelly. Under NCAA rules, however, operations staff members can't do any coaching during practice.

    "They'll be taken care of," Granato said. "That's certainly something we're aware of from a coaching standpoint on making sure they get the proper work. We'll go out early (to practice) with them.""

    TV schedule.

    https://uwbadgers.com/schedule.aspx?path=mhockey&

    18 games on TV. Not even all of the home games... Good grief.

    Glad to see the promise of the Big Ten Network really paying off in hockey coverage...

    None of the games @ UND, UND or UM are on TV. Ridiculous.

    If Sanger needs to be with his family, by all means be there, family comes first. It's still TG's responsibility to find another goalie coach. No disrespect to Cons, but he isn't a goalie coach, he's an x goalie, it doesn't mean he can coach. I find no other way to characterize this other than very distressing.

    I can't wait until Friday night and get to chant "more goals than shots". It's better be a bloodbath @ LaBahn.

    And this is what Barry Im not a hockey guy Alvarez touted as a bonus of forming the B10 hockey conference. There would be more coverage via btn. Welp, several years in and same old ****.

    With all of the alternate feeds BTN has that sit unused on cable and Dish systems on Friday and Saturday nights, that BTN Plu$ racket really grinds my gears...

    As an EPL supporter that has to pay for NBC Sports Gold, I agree.

    He's not too old to run his camps in 5 different cities! However, Im sure he has lots of help and has some time for the Badgers ;-) , after all, he's the Chancellor of Goaltender University.

    HOWIE, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when we come for you?

    Or full time skype with Korn.
    I DO have MCRJr's 4 different sets of Bill Howard Goalie School videos from the late 90s until 2008ish. I could bring a VCR (Look it up, punks), sit the boys down in front of a CRT TV (Look that up, too), and sit back with Doritos and Budweiser. BTW, I still have Korn CDs!

    I love Howie, but Howie can't run his camps AND be the volunteer goalie coach. NCAA rules prohibited it the summer Howie left coaching the Badgers. Probably not a coincidence there.

    I am 100% behind this idea!

    It's simple. Just stop the freakin' puck boys! Now toss me another cold one.

    I would like to attend these sessions. I will just bring better beer (or some Zima.)

    True, but it's all wishful thinking. I guess we've got to trust G on this move.

    My faith in TG has been shaken to the core, when I look at this goalie coach thing, look back on the goalie trainwreck last year, the lack of tight play in the D zone, and the recruiting flips/losses. A negative aura has sunk over me. This season is a referendum on TG as a head coach.

    Me too! MY son did the Korn camp one year and we had him in the Fox Valley a few times too.

    This is something new...



    Those that have been begging for 3 on 3 are getting their wish.

    Having Kalynuk and Miller gives us a couple of very good, mobile, offensive defenseman we can put out on consecutive shifts 3x3, so it seems ok to me from the Badgers standpoint.

    I was intrigued by Todd M. posting a working line combo of Zimmer-Malone-Johnson the other day. May seem a little 'meh' to some fans... but I thought Zimmer was really coming on late in the year last year. He's a terrific skater and if he has finally gotten up to pace and has learned to use his speed and mobility to make things happen without the puck.. I could see him being a real disruptor if he embraces that role, and that becoming a surprisingly good line.

    People complain no matter what, but 3 on 3 is 100x better than straight to shootout. We can accept gradual improvement.

    I like that line, Zimmer needs to be with top end guys so he has the best opportunity to show what he can really do. And being up against the opposing team's top line will also help push him to use his assets to the fullest.
