    Re: Who will be the NC$$ Champ?

    Appreciate the clarifications. The various recollections seem to mesh after all.

    It is good to recall (or learn) that the technology goes back farther than many people think. But I see no reason to believe that this had anything to do with the Eastern selections in '64, '66 & '71.

    The history of the Bell...

    http://cuonline.clarkson.edu/s/1680/...id=2&pgid=1970

    as Ken Dryden said in response to, "Was there anything you disliked about college hockey?"

    "Yes, that **** bell at Clarkson."


    Just to concur with what others have said here regarding the small college feel... I remember from the '90-91 team hanging out at the Bali Hai many times during the week or their Riverside Apartments ... the only problem with the hockey players - they got the better choice of Potsdam St girls! :-D

    The bars downtown at the time were BackStreets (Nickel drafts!!!), McDuff's, Bali Hai and Maxfields (had to be of "legal" age there though). Sergi's where you got the "pizza roll" after a night at McDuff's, and hoped you didn't freeze on the way back to the dorms (across the bridge was bitter)...or bite into the aluminum foil!

    Hugo Belanger - one of the all Clarkson greats (#3 all time scoring http://www.clarksonathletics.com/doc...%20Scorers.pdf), a high flying high scoring French-Canadian, there was excitement every time he got the puck on his stick (similar to when Marchant or Jarmo Kekalainen scored). Hugo Belanger finished with 1011 gp in minor hockey and 1465 pts. The 90-91 team was Craig Conroy's freshman year, Mark Green one of the best slapshots ever, Scott Thomas, Steve Dubinsky. I remember the lesser known players almost better- Guy Sanderson, Mikko Tavi, Shawn Fotheringham and Marty D'Orsonnens.


    Yes...it's great to hear about the UW history (playing next year right?), and explains why I knew we didn't like them at all, but had no clue why back then.

    One more thing.. I grew up about an hour from Potsdam (like most students back then, which makes it interesting that the forum members here were not "locals" lol), and had it narrowed down to Cornell and RIT, but really, there was no way I was going anywhere but Clarkson. Just one of those small town things..

    They played at my high school dances back in the 80s as well, so Potsdam seemed like the place for me.

    Very cool FK! I was there against a exhibition against a Russian Select team (Knights got smoked), and the BC game.

    I'd think given his approval ratings are falling like a rock and lower than Trump's, Trudeau would invite them to 24 Sussex or whatever passes for the Canadian "White House" these days.
