Do they teach reason at Quinnipiac? Also, so that you know, people who chuck USCHO a little coin get to see who reps them, so your neg-rep asking me to not troll you (wut) was kinda funny.

GFM

You kidding?
An ultra liberal school like that?

C'mon Geof, you're a smart guy. ;)

So "Puck Daddy" is back. I guess the take-away is that last week Michigan Tech sucked. This week we suck more, because we swept Bemidji on the road. Also, the WCHA sucks and MSU is so much better than Tech that there's no point in playing them this weekend. Case closed!

Good thing every conceivable bounce has just happened to go Tech's way this season, or they'd be 0-10 as their play deserves. What's this "Ryan Lambert" so irritable about? And has he every seen an actual hockey game?

He is slobbering all over MSU, saying Tech sucks and hasn't played anyone... yet. But he has Tech ranked higher than MSU for some reason even though they're the cream of the crop and will beat up on the rest of the soft/mediocre WCHA? Very strange. I'm not sure if he's really stable. There's an excuse every time one of the elites lose to a lowly WCHA team. Maybe he should call Red in Ann Arbor and get his opinion. Those 10 goals weren't luck. But at the end of the day, I put him in the pile with the rest of the critics. They can do something I'll not repeat here. Mel and the gang can just keep rolling along racking up the W's. We'll make a little crow for him to enjoy for Thanksgiving.

The best luckiest deserving, but undeserving, "prove it" until they finally lose a game so I can tell you "told ya so", weak scheduling, weak conference, no talent *****clown 10-0 team I will ever not see.
-R. Lambert & A. Lane

Must be that East Coast Bias thing. :D

I think it is great that USCHO and Yahoo Sports are giving jobs to the mentally handicapped, but I question the logic in giving them actual writing jobs. Seems like it could backfire.

There is a reason for his ranting: He's looking for page clicks, and getting them.

He's called NCAA 101. It's a quick look into the college hockey world for the NHL mouth-breathers who read Puck Daddy for the NHL news and rumors. It's not meant to be more than a weekly fluff piece not meant for those of us posting here.


If I was a better writer, I'd jump on starting a blog titled "NCAA Hockey 317: Upper Level Review" as a counter-point to his blog. But there are plenty of smart college hockey blogs that already exist: USCHO's own (those might be 400 level blogs), SB Nation's College Hockey Blog, ND Goon blog, etc.


What irks me about Ryan Lambert isn't that he writes like this, I understand that page clicks via Puck Daddy earn him paychecks with Yahoo, it's that he *continues* to write like this as it gets passed along to the NHL fans of Puck Daddy as gospel.



Five years ago, I e-mailed him over a blurb he had posted:
Northern Michigan's Ray Kaunisto was suspended one game for his reportedly brutal headshot against Lake Superior State last weekend. [Michigan College Hockey (http://michigancollegehockey.blogspot.com/2009/12/nmus-kaunisto-suspended-one-game.html)]

Me, to Ryan Lambert:
Here's the YouTube video for the "hit" that caused the one game suspension of Ray Kaunisto:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi9k4G9cup8
And best part, that's the only camera angle and footage that most likely made the determination for the suspension.
<hr>
Ryan Lambert, to me:
It was a hit to the head well away from the play. Pretty clear that that should've been a suspension. There have been at least four suspensions on plays exactly like that this year in the NHL.

Yep, because NHL supplemental discipline = NCAA supplemental discipline. :rolleyes:

I think GreatLakerMohawk has his side blog back up, I think, but am unsure. NBC let him go, but he's been the Sabres guy for a bit, and has made appearances on NHL Network. He actually knows his college hockey.

Of course not. If I remember Pittsburgh correctly - a little fuzzy at times because that was a great trip - the almighty Q would have won an NCAA title if not for Yale.
Nevermind a certain team that only played 20 minutes in Grand Rapids and nearly beat Eli. :)

I really miss GLM around these parts. And yes, he knows a lot about college hockey.

The job(s) he has had keeps him really busy. We shared a hotel room for the Quiz/Sloe Gin wedding, and he was working half the time, putting up articles and such. We still keep in touch, etc. I do miss his input here, where he could be a little looser with opinions and attitude.

I'm fine taking flack for writing what I did. No one needs to apologize or stand up for me. I wrote it and chose to put it in MTU's thread. And I'd do it again.

As for GFM, you got me ;) That aerospace engineering degree is above me. UAH might be the closest college hockey to me come next year. So you might get more than your fair share of me in the future, run for the hills

It's almost time to start a new MTU season thread. This one is near the 1000 count plateau.

The newest board member is an MTU fan. The bandwagon has begun! :D

I wonder if we'll see an NLI signing announcement today.

I listened to the USCHO Live podcast, no real news from Pearson. Just happy with defensive and team minded play. He jokingly noted that he doesn't think it'll be a problem to get teams to travel to Tempe to take on Arizona State.

No! I just thought the signing period ends today. Curious to see who signed.

Michigan Tech tends to be a little slow in officially announcing those who've signed for hockey, not sure why. Sometimes it sounds like its about getting the hard copies via snail mail, not really sure.
