Jozy won't play tonight. Hopefully he will return against UVM. I can't remember seeing ZAR spend any meaningful time as a center. I agree about the second line. If it a'int broke... Jozy may be on the third line when he comes back.

He played center at Lincoln. Here's an obscure factoid, when ZAR first suited up for the Huskies as a Freshmen he centered either the 3rd or 4th line between Pond and Ferraro. At some point very early, He Who Shall Not Be Named and then Roy were hurt/out and ZAR was moved up to second line winger.

Mad Dog sometimes configured that line with ZAR, HWSNBN, Roy, Hedges and JStevens. He stayed second line winger until late sophomore season when that line came to be configured as it is today and was actually used as the first line for the last month or so immediately after the Beanpot.

Another obscure factoid, for reasons passing understanding, MadDog broke that line up at the beginning of last season. Moved Roy on the wing with JStevens and Hedges and put ZAR on the wing with Gaudette and Kurker.

...I would have liked to have seen Fillipe moved up to the wing on that line and left the 2nd line alone...Fillipe's natural instinct for the game would be well served playing with those 2...

On this point we can agree. (Except that Filipe spells his name with only one L.)

Yes he does...apologies to the FiLipe family...

Showing we don't know anything, JIm being unorthodox with the lines now that Johnny is hurt.

Nolan-ZAR-Griffin
Sikura-Gaudette-Lerario
Filipe-Collier-Kurker
Jamieson-Pond-Picking

He actually split time between Lerario and Filipe on that second line.

My prediction is for us to not get used to Filipe being around past his sophomore season...the difference between his play this weekend and last weekend was stark. So much upside and he's filling it

I have to disagree with you. Despite the nickname "meatball", his dad is a bright guy who recognizes the benefits that a college degree would mean for his son. I would expect him to stay at least 3 years and to leave only if he is close to getting his degree. I do agree that he is looking better each week.

Does anyone know the story with Schule? He is becoming conspicuous by his absence.

Everybody wants to know what's up with Schule. Anybody knows anything feel free to share.

I spoke to him over a week ago, said he would be back in November. Nothing beyond that, and I did not press.

GSM, when you refer to HWMSBN, do you mean the person who transferred to Minnesota, or Mike McMurtry, who actually played last year? Unsure why anyone would have a beef with Murch, he was an assistant captain who played his heart out and improved over 4 years at NU. Your wording had me confused, in that I figured it was targeted against Szmatula, but then you referenced "last year" and having Gaudette/Kurker, neither of whom played with Szmatula.

Gentleman's bet...Carolina is so lean that they could probably put him in their system now.

And, with all due respect to his father, any decision will probably be out of his hands.

Yes. Look for him to be back on the 4th line by Notre Dame.

I meant Hedges and I've corrected the response. Thanks.

I may have my own years confused, too. Think he had the Stevens boys together from the onset last season with Reid and then Sikura and Roy was with Hedges and McMurtry but I could be wrong .

Getting old sucks.

Time to see how we really look this weekend against a HE school. I watched UVM against Omaha on tv replay and if they come out flat Vermont can score goals. Also big game for Ruck. We know how he can play but he hasn't been stellar so far. Go Huskies!!!!'

We need Ruck to be huge today. And I mean HUGE. We also need the D to play HUGE.

You'll find out why later.

Well if this isn't the definition of ominous I don't know what is. I gotta assume the injury bug has hit. There aren't any suspensions so injury is the only way we'd lose a guy.

Oh god. If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, I saw him on campus this week wearing some medical contraption and I've been lying to myself ever since trying to convince myself that he's fine.

PLEASE tell me I'm wrong.
