So Michael Neville has left the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and apparently he's back with St. Michael's Buzzers...

"Left" or was cut? Looking over all the guys on the Roughriders who dressed for the USHL preseason, and without knowing anything else, it must've been an ice time issue. He didn't light anyone up, but his stats don't seem to indicate that he was totally out of place either (6 GP, 0-1-1, even) - it's a big leap from the OJHL to the USHL. Maybe he (or the Tech staff) felt that he'd be better prepared by playing Top 6 minutes with his old club, vs. being told that he'd likely play fourth line minutes and/or only dress every other game in Cedar Rapids.

That's what I was wondering. Quite a ride for him, it had sounded like he was pretty impressive in the Lincoln Stars tryout camps, and then he gets traded and now he's headed back to St. Michaels.


And the WCHA media poll is out, Tech was listed at 9th.

No respect.......even after last season. By all accounts, this year's team should be as good or better than last year's team. I suppose it's cuz we're in a tougher schedule group than last year.

There's that, but more importantly, nobody respects or takes seriously a team that suddenly has one average season after years of bottomfeeding.

Wow, look at the "modern cut" of that jersey. Sorry couldn't resist.
;)
But seriously, pretty nice. When did they add the murals in the lockerroom? Looks like Conner in the gold jersey over his shoulder.

From Facebook:
Michigan Tech Hockey Garage Sale is Saturday Sept 29.
So in other words, the paycheck I collect on Friday will be gone by noon on Saturday... Ehh, it's going to a great cause, who cares.
:D

They are going to look even better when worn as hosts of the WCHA first round playoffs. This is the year, I don't care what the preseason poll says. What do the "experts" know anyway? Everyone who posts here says we can do it and that is all that matters (well that and the scoreboard).

Michigan Tech has picked up a commitment from Des Moines (USHL) Defenseman, Marcus Ericsson. As you might expect from the name, he was born in Sweden and until the 2012-13 season, he has played Jr Hockey in Sweden, in fact, in Lulea, where bigblue_dl was for work earlier this year of all places. He's 6'1" but didn't put up many points with his teams so probably more of a stay at home d-man. Likely to join the huskies for 2013-14.

I'll be watching Des Moines play Team USA tomorrow night in Ann Arbor. I'll report back with what i see.

In the crease number 2 is up. Much better quality and video production. I'm liking this!

HUGE improvement. Good work, Nick Laurila.

The Misfits will not travel en masse to Duluth this year, opting for SCSU instead. The reasoning for this is that the Duluth series takes place the weekend before spring semester begins, and it would be harder to entice students to return early than leave late (SCSU is the first weekend of spring break.)

Everyone should experience the National Concrete Center and a large order of Val's french fries as least once. :)

Would be nice to bust that "winless in St. Cloud" streak with a bunch of people there. I think it's going on 14 years now, and this will likely be our last ever crack at it.

Thanks for the info. That does influence a trip (or two) for me.

Got my Minnesota tickets. I'll be at the KBC before the game friday for a brew or two around 5, so if anyone is there look for the bald guy and the good looking blonde. No Brent, forget it, she likes CLASS guys. I might also be with a professor buddy of mine, but he's harmless though he used to be the state wrist wrestling champion. It would be nice to meet some of the more famous posters.

I would agree that the video quality is much better and so is the subject matter.

I'm liking the new style of team picture.

John - come up and say hi during the Minnesota series. Thinking is its going to be a sellout! The Mac hasn't seen that in awhile.

I'll not miss going there. Bah. I feel dirty just thinking about it...

Also, I they need to remember to get some hairy buffalos at MC Dugouts, and also to not get stabbed at the Carpet.

edit: Why are there only like 14 guys in the team photo? :p
