Who doesn't know what that means?

No habla.

I have a hard time ordering when I go to MacDonalds.

Why do you go to McDonald's at all? Or MacDowells from coming to America.

Is anyone familiar with Mitch Rogge? Based on his walk-on status and stats at Sacred Heart and in juniors it seems doubtful he will get much ice time.

It's hard being a white guy from EveryDayINeedAttention.

I figure he'd know Spanish just from his home caretakers. ;)

Awesome!

I don't know that the Gophers have the players with the very top accolades that MI or BC have (maybe they do). But there's no group of recruits in the country I'd rather have...and the pipeline is absolutely stacked.

I'd say BC has a better set of recruits, but they still have to actually show up unlike one of their first rounders this year. :)

BU has some pretty good ones lined up too, if they make it.

Shocker.
Taking into account this year's class:
Hanifin
Tuch
White
Bracco
McPhee
...
There's no way I'd be the only person that argues that.

**** fine recruits.

But nobody argues against the Michigan recruits. :-)

Michigan tops them all.

I understand the sentiment strictly from an accolades standpoint. But we'll see how it translates.

Even so, I wouldn't trade our current total pipeline. In part, its very deep...but also I'd put our coaching staff's approach to team building over even that of BC.

Maybe I'm in the minority on this one.

Any news on the improvements they are making at Mariucci? As I recall the rink size will stay the same for this season, but are they doing anything else prior to the first puck drop?

Hmmm...no changes, apparently.

How about beer sales? Why football but not hockey?

Beer isn't needed to watch the product on the ice vs. the product across the street.

True, but these days it seems to be all about maximizing revenues!

I agree it is not needed to make hockey interesting, but beer can make a great thing even a little better. (You telling me on Friday night when you sit down in front of a game on tv you don't crack a cold one?)
