    Sabres forward and former Gopher Kyle Okposo talks about CM joining the Sabres > HERE
    I think he would have benefited from another year, but can't blame him for his decision. Wish Casey the best of luck.

He was pretty good against the other Minnesota schools so I guess if that carries over that will be positive for the program.

    Also said fans need to get over the WCHA being gone and that the Big Ten is definitely showing it's better. To the point he said if the Gophers had made the tournament, there would have been four Big Ten teams in the Frozen Four.

    Thoughts from the Gopher faithful on that comment?
    I agree with him. Fans may miss the WCHA (we all do), but it is not coming back. People need to move on and start supporting the B1G.

    I remember when the WCHA included Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame. These were big rivals before and are becoming big rivals again.

    I remember the days you were talking about! Imo, it's going take another 5 to 10 years before rivalries develop again.

    Sometimes I miss the old Mariucci. Games in that venue were absolutely crazy fun to watch.

    Lots of great names on that team: Stauber, Bischoff, Cates, Broten, Hankinson, Gersich. They were fun to watch!

    I don't know if it will take that long. What makes a good rivalry starts on the ice, then flows out to the fans. What is going on out on the ice is already a rivalry, if only the beginning maybe, it's still a rivalry, especially after this year. Michigan made it's whole push to get to the Frozen Four off of their kicking the Gopher's arses, PSU did the same thing, came out of left field to beat us 4 straight to get them in, and with a little help from some unexpected Conf Champs, put the Gophers out. So right there, any players from this season still around next year might remember both Michigan and PSU. Minnesota and Wisconsin have ALWAYS had their rivalry. Michigan and MSU and Ohio St have always had their rivalries. The only rivalries needing fuel are the crossover ones and vs the new guys, PSU and Notre Dame. But Notre Dame coming in like they did, winning the Conf Title their first year, has to put a target on their backs, and if they win the Natl Title, well, anywhere they go to play next year fans will be that much more motivated to go to the game. Same if OSU wins it, or Michigan?

    Minnesota struggling is probably very good for the Conf. Sucks for Gopher fans obviously, but in the long run, what is good for the BTHC is good for college hockey and what is good for both of those will be good for Minnesota as even after our struggles, we are still The State of Hockey!!!

    He definitely doesn't have much of an affinity for the media and I thought his message was very brief without a lot of content. "I'm a hockey coach, ok?" Given media exposure in the Twin Cities is at another level with the Gophers than SCSU, that will have to change.

    When asked why he left SCSU, he seemed to be caught off guard and fumbled for an answer other than the obvious one, more money. Frankly, I'm not overly exuberant over the hire, but I hope he brings new energy.

    Grant Potulny, the 2018 WCHA Coach of the Year, just signed an eight year deal with NMU that will run through 2026.
