Yeah, I suppose I'm going to have to adjust to the idea of watching a stream on my computer instead.

I think I watched every game last season whether via web stream or TV. Maybe I've conceded, but I don't mind plugging the my computer into the TV and streaming a game if I have to. BTN2Go.com has actually made it easier to watch every game than ever before. The BTN2Go streams are HD quality.

If I had to guess, the lack of an answer is probably the answer to that question. My bet would be that they don't have anyone or will be doing nothing more than an AP type synopsis for the events before or after they happen.

I wasn't really expecting an answer, I just wanted them to know that there is interest in the newspaper coverage. I'd encourage others to dot he same.

I have tried that with a few women's games and it just doesn't work very well. I don't know if it's the feed from the host, Charter, my laptop, the cord or the TV are the culprit but the video on the tv screen is choppy. I usually get frustrated and end up just watching on the desktop. Is there a fee for BTN2Go?

Yes, and be careful. I signed up for the monthly pass to catch a few games, something like $10. It is a continuous subscription that keeps going. And it doesn't show up on your cc statement as "btn" or "btn2go" or anything remotely descriptive.
Once I connected the dots to figure out I was still paying a few months after the season ended I went to the website to try to cancel, looked in my account settings but didn't see a cancel option. There is an email link hidden at the bottom of the page. You have to email them and ask to cancel. It ended up being processed right away, but that is a sketchy way of doing business. And there isn't a phone support line either, it is either a chat window on the website or an email to a help account.
That whole situation just rubs me the wrong way from a customer service standpoint. I won't be purchasing any services through therm unless they clean up that process.

Yes, and be careful. ...

It is free if your provider already gets BTN.

So then I get it free then as I have Charter and they have the BTN in their base package.

I broke down and subscribed to Twitter. I figured with Baggot out and not being able to count of any newspapers at all, and Bucky's 5th Q lacking a hockey reporter now, I am putting my trust in Chuck's limited involvement for the tidbits of gold. Thanks Chuck, we all do really appreciate whatever you contribute.

Who gets drafted this weekend? Hughes and Opilka are locks. Malone and Kunin maybe?

Kunin is too young. Parsells is a lock. Probably Opilka. Hughes deserves to be picked. Freytag may be a late selection. Stillwell is a sleeper. Anyone else would be a surprise. Malone should be picked but he's already been passed over in one draft.

Given the recruiting **** show I wonder...could MSOE beat UW consistently at this point? I'd wager in a 7 game series it would be 4-3

Haha! MCR Jr, (an MSOE grad who I brag about frequently :o, ) jokingly asked me that same thing when I was visiting him a couple weeks ago!! I actually thought about it for a few seconds. Jeez.

Great minds think alike.

For a more happy topic - the Blake Geoffrion Hockey Classic is tonight! Last year's game was a blast, and I expect this year's to be just as good.

J.J. Watt took a couple of penalty shots, pinch-shooting for Burish.

I'd bet Stevens Point could though our goaltender isn't anything special IMO.

Jack Becker could also go today in the draft.

Do you happen to know what Freytag's late season injury was, and how that may affect his draft status and play next year?

Thanks, a great idea Timothy A. I was associated with Andy's (Chuck's) Twitter account for than 5 years and had great exchanges with him. Beware though, as with what happened to me, Andy(Chuck) Blocked me). So be careful what you say. I never was told the reason when I asked him why he blocked me but he did.

I took it personally. I am a loyal Badger Hockey fan and did not deserve his arbitrary discrimination. Yes he has that right so, just beware and don't get cut off. Andy (Chuck) how many others?

I honestly can't remember. I don't think it was something that was expected to carry over.

Opilka goes to the Blues in the 5th Round. Dream come true for a St. Louis kid. Must feel amazing.
