"Favour"? This is why we need to build that wall with Canada.As long as the UP is on the north side of it.

And Justin Trudeau will pay for it?

Congratulations to Cam. Norwich is getting a good guy and wonderful coach. Hope it works out well for both him and the school.

Then how will you quickly get to Potsdam?

Normally, cross at the Soo, take the Trans Canada to Prescott, cross back in, take Rt 38 to Rt 68 to Canton and then Rt. 11 to Potsdam. 2 day trip.

Otherwise, it's toll road central and add a day.

No, all Canadiens will help pay for it. And if they are still short on funding then maybe some Canadians will have to step up and help out as well, you know, as a favour to their fellow countrymen.

Look, I'm not saying there are no negative consequences to the wall, but one day it's "favour," the next it's "centre," and in a month, people in the US will be putting gravy on fries, listening to Celine Dion records, and asking why the NHL Network only talks about the Leafs for 23 hours a day.

Canadians put gravy on fries because they save the ketchup for when they make the special Quebec Pizza (Pop-Tart with ketchup).

I drove from Houghton To Lake Placid once, thru Sudbury. We left at 3 pm and arrived at 7 30 am.

I believe we took 2 days by bus to get to NMU. But the rules on bus drivers are different than us car drivers.

I assume only 1 driver, then. Back in college, we had a bus go straight through from Duluth MN to Dallas TX with 2 drivers. Only pizz stops happened (we brought our own food).

The NCAA just changed the rule to allow 19 skaters to dress for each game. This is an interesting dynamic as I would assume most coaches would go with an extra D to protect for a D-man leaving for a major, etc. For Tech this could have a quick benefit allowing Rockwell to dress for most games to add his offensive upside to the lineup. It definitely gives the coaches an extra specialist type player to have available.

I think I've talked about them quite a bit over time...I guess I may have been lazy and not written about Gotz, Bellant, Noble, or Jurusik yet...

Let's just say its going to be difficult to make the 19 dressed and the 21 road travelers (if its 21 now?) Swoyer, Buckley, and Gotz all have a chance to break top 6.
Broetzman, Bliss, and Parrottino are experienced USHL forwards while Halonen is a little younger. All will be pushing for time. I expect Broetzmand and Bliss to be pushing for Top 6. Parrottino and Halonen aren't far behind. Noble, Bellant and Polglaze are likely more role players but they should be very good at what Joe asks them to do and will be pushing hard too.
Jurusik is about as good as MTU could have expected to get for a goaltender. He has the chance to again make goaltending a 3 horse race and has 2 years of eligibility left which fits in nicely with other plans for the future. I expect Kero to start in goal but Jurusik and Beydoun are right there...

This paragraph sounds like a broken record but MTU should be very deep next season. It will be interesting to see how Joe keeps 17 forwards, 9 defensemen and 3 goaltenders happy.

I'll be honest, I haven't been on much lately, just too much going on in life, but wanted to see what the thoughts were. Hopefully enough to let us compete for a top 4 spot and get a home playoff series this season.

I think expectations should probably be a bit higher for this group.
