I'm looking forward to the Day when you start wearing Boone T-shirts to the games and the Pioneers become your favorite team. :)

:p:D:D

I don't see that happening. I might be open to rooting for the Lacrosse team though.

Hello to DU Fans,

I recently acquired a jersey in trade from well known collector Milton Bryon that doesn't fit my Michigan Tech collection so I figured I would offer it here. If you have any interest, email or PM me.

Thanks,

If there was ever a season where DU could just steal a National Championship, this would have to be it. All the big guns have suffered significant NHL or OHL defections.

DU needs to get into the postseason healthy. Easier said than done.

The Beagle Boys of college hockey. I like it. If we still published a media guide, it'd make a great cover.

OK, now I'm excited!!! :)DU won two national championships in '04 & '05 in large part because it was the only major college hockey power to not have a player leave early for the pros [Matt Pettinger in 2000].

Now DU may be the only major school who has not lost a recruit to major juniors. Will it pay dividends again?

Dakota is on the same "steal the championship" plan. They maybe shooda had it last year and are going to try to sneak off with it when we aren't watching them as closely this year. They have played this role before - '23 can name the years that they came back after losing it the year before when favored.
I'm sick of this summer. Sick to death of it - bring on the snow and the hockey.

I think this was directed at me, but not entirely sure.

In 1958, North Dakota was the conference champion (along with DU), and faced DU for the National Championship, unfortunately for the Fighting Sioux, Denver won that match 6-2 for their first title. The following season North Dakota won their first title defeating Michigan State 4-3 in OT.

In 1979, North Dakota, led by first year coach Gino Gasparini won the MacNaughton Cup and the WCHA Playoff Title and advanced all the way to the title game against conference foe Minnesota. The Gophers defeated North Dakota 4-3 with Neal Broten scoring a circus type goal for the game winner (think 2007 Final Five Title game type goal). The following season North Dakota won their first title in 17 years beating Northern Michigan 5-2 in the title game.

In 1999, North Dakota dominated the regular season, amassing a 24-2-2 record in WCHA play and carried the #1 overall seed heading into the NCAA Tournament. They faced off against Boston College, and lost a heartbreaker 3-1, as an empty net goal was scored in the closing moments in Madison. The following season North Dakota won their 7th National Championship defeating Boston College 4-2 thanks to 3 third period goals.

In 2005 they nearly pulled off the same accomplishment, as their 2004 squad was arguably the greatest that never won a title. They finished just shy, falling to Denver 4-1 in the title game.

Will this season be repeats from '59, '80 and '00? One can only hope :p:D:D

Currently there is a pre-sale going on for DU season ticket holders for individual games. Do any of you season ticket holders know the pre-sale code to enter and if you do would you kindly share that info.

Interesting article by a UND student about the returning scoring prowess in the WCHA. DU looking strong with 72% of goals scored (98 of 136) back on the ice. And 65.3% of total points scored (233 of 357). Unfortunately cc is right up there :o
Two interesting stats--UND with the lowest percentage of goal scoring coming back and Tech with the highest:eek:

Thanks, a sad day for the DU family. Corey was a forward who played from the 1989/90 to 1991/92 seasons, missed the 1992/93 season and finished his career in 1993/94. He had 23 goals and 42 assists for 65 points in 105 games.

I am so sorry to hear this. For some reason I don't remember him, (well actually I can think of a few reasons), who would have been his linemates or notable teammates?

I believe he came in the same class as Ryan O'Leary and Bryan Schoen ('89, I believe), plus a couple others (Podiak might ring a bell, though he finished as a student manager)...Carlson was 5'9 or 5'10 and 170'ish, a pretty good player on some not-so-good DU teams, who had a few injuries during his time at DU.

Oh God!!! I'm starting to panic.... I can't wait much longer. Bagman, I need some inspiration here!!!!
As a potential point of conversation, can anybody tell me how great this Finnish goaltender is going to be and that the injury to Brittain is not going to ruin our lives??? :eek::eek::eek:
