Sorry if this is a repeat, but I didn't feel like reading through the hundreds of posts here.

Anyone planning on coming to oxford for the opening weekend?

Motox and his wife are going. I also think the SCSU Center Ice Club has a trip planned so there should be some Husky fans there.

St. Cloud takes on Maine tonight in Football. The Huskies had a nice little drive for a fieldgoal, but then gave up a TD on the kickoff. :(

No shame in taking a decent D1-AA squad to OT. A win would have been a lot nicer, but, shibby happens right?? Either way, the Huskies should have a fairly good run in the NSIC.

Off topic, but would you guys agree that when it comes to the NCAA Tourney, WCHA teams might be at a disadvantage from beating each other up all year, where as out east the competition isn't as tough, and the top teams glide through their conference schedules and come into the tourney at full strength..?

Over the last 25 years I have watched WCHA hockey, I think only a couple times a team that won the NCAA title won the WCHA title in the same year.:eek: however, I think playing in a tough league is why so many WCHA teams end up winning it all.

In my defense, there are times it's tough to tell if you are being a smart *** or just brain dead. :)

A little off topic, but I noticed Jase Weslosky is off the roster? I have searched high and low and every profile he has says he's finishing his senior year off at SCSU 2009-2010. The bio he has on the Islanders / Sound Tigers is from 2006. WHERE DID HE GO?

Yes and no. I think that in certain situations, it has to have helped in some situations, getting you prepared for the grind of the tourney by playing such tough competition week in and week out. However, I'm sure there are times where its hurt teams, especially teams that play a lot of minutes in the WCHA tournament (going to the 3rd game in the first round, playing a lot of OTs or getting stuck in the extra Thursday night game). I think everyone thinks about the results of the NCAA tourney as too much of a finality.... if UW beats BC one year, everyone assumes that means that UW was the better overall team, and that it helps prove that the WCHA was better than Hockey East. In reality, it means that UW was better than BC for 60 minutes on a given night.

It was a pretty big story, and on the USCHO main page.

Playing in a tough conference makes a much bigger difference. When WCHA teams were winning National titles the conference was extremely competitive. The last couple years the talent has been down and the league hasn't been as strong and it has showed with poor performances in the NCAA tourny. Last season Hockey east was by far the best conference and they had two in the Frozen Four and the Champion came from that conference.

So I think its inaccurate to say the talent out east isnt as good, because it has been better, IMO, the last two years. But I think it is safe to say that playing in the best conference and tough opponents night in and night out only helps you come tournament time.

Opening weekend is going to be big for the huskies. You guys are the only good non conference team they play. For pairwise reasons they need at least a split to get off on the right foot.

It looks like your squad has most of your guys back form last year. I am hoping you show a little rust and the Huskies can steal one. This team has not been good on the road lately...

Yeah, and playing on a smaller sheet of ice isn't gonna help either. :(
