So can we assume that St. Lawrence will likely visit Oct. 15/16 or 22/23, since they are in the ECAC but aren't an Ivy?


That would be a good guess...

Apparently it's rumored to be in January. So January 14/15th is possible too, since 7/8th is supposedly @ St, Clooud.

This does not sound pleasant.

According to Jamie earlier today, they're still calling conference each other to figure it out, so I am not sure how solid January is.

It could be worse - your "present" could be a 10-1 thrashing at the hands of Michigan State.

So true.
Though, I'd imagine that will be my pre-birthday.

Oops, I thought that one was on there. If you guys are planning an invasion, I can probably get a hold of such information.

The skating treadmill is basically the most overhyped and misunderstood investment in the hockey program over the past decade or so. I'm still amazed at the number of people who think it is supposed to magically make our worst skaters faster. It may improve speed a bit here and there, but endurance and efficiency are supposed to be the key benefits.

Not that it's helped endurance or efficiency much either - seems like the team always runs out of gas partway through the 2nd.

you'd get tired too if you played 15 minutes per period.

sorry for the double post. haven't seen mac D here lately, did he die or something?

second, is anyone else feeling like we should pressure the puck more. I think it's fine to play the trap, but when the opposition has the number 5 Defenseman out there, I'd like to see us pressure the puck more. Seems to me we might get a few more turnovers and opportunities to counter attack if we forced play a little more. Just my two cents though.

I think he got tired of the young whippersnappers questioning the coaching staff's abilities and whining about how much the team sucks. ;)

Why are we talking about new jersey and the way it designs?
