Was wondering when someone would start this thing up. Was going to, but had nothing intelligent to say.

(Still don't I guess).

...who are you hoping to see on the bench with Coach Eaves next year?

Does Norwich give UW more cred in Canada? Shuchuk the same? I like the 1990 connection w/Schuchuk.

If Don Granato comes in, how long does he stay? I feel it might be a strike against him if Eaves feels like he's going to bolt in 1-2 years.

I haven't heard anything else on who else is being considered...

as for Oseicki and OSU, man that was a **** good hire for him to get Rohlik to join him. CCHA look out.

Time for a new Wisconsin thread...

Thought we came to an understanding the last time you created a Wisconsin thread that we don't need to do "parts" or "offseason" threads.

This is the exchange we had the last time...


I understand why you did it. But We always run the Wisconsin threads to 1,000 posts no matter what. So in my opinion it doesn't make sense to do "parts" or "offseason" threads.

Because they end up running into each other and it looks stupid if you have an offseason thread in during the season, etc.


Understood.

A) I'm not intellegent enough to realize we were at 1,000 on the old one.
B) I'm not creative enough to think of a good title.
C) Shush

No kidding. The rodent thread needs to have the word "aftermath" in it, not ours.

1. A consequence, especially of a disaster or misfortune: famine as an aftermath of drought.
2. A period of time following a disastrous event: in the aftermath of war.

Well Oz did just leave for OSU after KP left for the USHL, and two top notch blue liners are headed to the pro's...aftermath is fair IMHO.

The beauty of an aftermath is the revival that comes w/ it, and the 2010 recruiting class is looking pretty good.

Good points, although a revival isn't always a given. Tech has been waiting something like 859 years for a revival. And here's to hoping the rodent's revival is another 859 years out.

W/ tDon and John Hill running the show and Stauber making the goalies worse each season they spend there, I'm hoping their trend continues.

Tech...well there isn't much hope for them.

I think the Badgers aren't in a bad spot next season barring anymore early departures past Brendan Smith; DU lost a lot of talent on top as well, but North Dakota, St Cloud and Duluth are looking strong.

Remember a top 6 finish next season gets home ice.

Yeah i think people are putting a little too much into B. Smith and Goloubef leaving. Gardiner will likely take B. Smith's roll on the PP and he is every bit as talented and will probably put up McBain type numbers there next season. Its not like we have some inexperienced freshman taking there place on the blueline, your looking at C. Johnson Springer and Little who have game experience and know the system so much better then there freshman years. The goaltending i think will be a notch or two better, Gudmandson got some great experience down the stretch that will only help him this year and with bennett pushing him i think Goody could be a top goaltender in the league next year.

Yes there will be a dip off in goal production next season but Stepan and C. Smith as the 1 and 2 centers, thats a pretty good start. (I think C. Smith will get moved to center next season) I think players like Lee, Turnbull and Murray will play key roles on the PP and one of them will put up Davies like numbers (his first 3 years) they won't come close to having the numbers davies had last season. It won't be as deep up front as last year but there are some goal scorers there as well as the BCHL kid coming in. UW will have to win some games with defense and goaltending, something EAves knows a little something about....

Wow, you take this forum seriously, dont you? :rolleyes: You said no off-season threads during the season and last time I checked, this is the offseason not the season.
Whatever. Clearly youre going to find a reason to criticize me no matter what I do.

Tell me about it... i didn't know Wisconsin hockey threads had to be regulated like Wall street Bankers... Sometimes Uw hockey threads on this site seem like a dictatorship... I look at it as there are some people on this thread that could do with getting a life... but then again thats just one idiots opinion... :P

We're all idiots... we just all happen to take Wisconsin Hockey more seriously than most. :D

Like I explained to you last time you created a thread, we always run Wisconsin threads to 1,000 posts. So when it gets to November, and we're multiple weeks into the season, and we're still running the off season thread, we look like retards. Just because other teams do it, doesn't mean we have to.

I'm simply telling you what the people that have come before me have decided for Wisconsin rules. It's no wonder some legendary Wisconsin posters no longer post here, or don't do so nearly enough.

Just because you come on here, and post a clip off an article from UWBadgers.com once in a while, doesn't mean you're contributing.

Thankfully we have the thread police such as you to keep things in line.

Maybe you and any others who are so concerned with following the Wisconsin thread rules set down by our forefathers should form your own thread where you can discuss only whatever it is that we're supposed to be discussing.

Here's a clue. The online environment is an ever changing, ever evolving. What it was 5 years ago is meaningless. The people using this thread now get to decide what it is and how to use it. Those who left(or who may leave) forfeit their right to have a say.

I'm sure there's a way that you and the old posters who no longer post here because of GoBucky or me or whomever could make a chat room where only members could access it. Then you could have complete control over thread titles and content! :eek:

I appreciate your contributions to recruiting news, but you add zero around this thread in terms of entertainment. And the notion that we're worried about what other fans do with their threads is really kind of pathetic, don't you think?

Are you really like this? :rolleyes:

Ugh. :rolleyes:

Chuck I think the reason we don't have some of the veteran posters around here as much anymore is because some of them took themselves way too seriously, much like you seem to be doing...and then when they get called on it, they pout and take their ball and go home. Throw guys on ignore if you don't like what they're saying.

We all appreciate what you contribute, and respect your connections, passion, and the info you provide, but most of us come here to get away from the monotony of our days, not to watch grown men arguing like children.

While losing Goloubef and Smith to early departure is certainly worse then having them return for their senior years, our D corp will be extrememly talented and the envy of most if not all college teams (especially if McDonagh somehow manages to return). Schultz, Gardiner, & McDonagh give you 3 guys that can run a PP as good as any in the country. Add in Rampage and you have a solid top 4 with plenty of options to mix and match to get your third pairing which in honesty is more of a luxury then a neccesity (there is no reason a horse like McDonagh can't play half the game). Lose McDonagh and I'm not as confident because you will need a player that is much less certain to step into your top 4 (we will have plenty of choces still...but all will be far from a given).

Up front, we do lose a ton of experience, scoring, talent in the 8 departed forwards.

As Wisconsin fans, isn't that a given?

I kid, I kid! ;)
Sorry, just trying to lighten the mood a bit. :)
