DU roster show jersey numbers for 3 incoming freshman:
Joey LaLeggia-#21 last worn by William Wrenn (hope he lasts longer) and before that by Tyler Bozak.
Zac Larraza-#16 last worn by Anthony Maiani
Scott Mayfield-#2 worn by another tall D-Man, DU and Blackhawk legend, Keith Magnuson

Well, the expectations for Mayfield are obviously high. Here's hoping he can lead us to a couple of NC's too.

Can someone explain to me what the "Parise" references are all about? I got one on a political thread this weekend and haven't got a clue.

Don't know the parise reference, unless we recruited one of them but i thought we got a zajac.

oh INCH ranked us 5 in a way early preseason national ranking they said we would be 1 except for the goaltending issue.

I see us next year being like detroit was/is so many years a very good team with "shaky" goaltending. i foresee an osgood type season for Murray, not a bad goalie but allright. Plus we should have a great d corp and we should also win a lot of high scoring games.

also chris are you still going to be turning on the red light in the NCHC?

Re: Parise. It's used as some sort of insult. And in my case they're insulting me because I don't take the reference.

Re: Parise. It's used as some sort of insult. And in my case they're insulting me because I don't take the reference.On USCHO.com Parise is a sarcastic term that means "God." It comes from hockey player Zach Parise, who when recruited to North Dakota, was hailed as a god by the Sioux fans. Gophers fans mostly use the term.

Thanks. I'm familiar with him but not the back story. Naturally, woodchuck fans.

FWIW, Denver should be better than Yale and North Dakota this upcoming season even without Brittain. DU should be able to put up quite a few goals, and I wouldn't be surprised if they put up similar numbers to UND last year (ie ~4 gpg). That should be able to overcome the occasional poor goalie performance. IMO, Denver is the #1 team in the country, and should contend for a National Title. It will be fun having season tickets this year for sure.

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.

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.

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?

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

Yes, directed towards you, but not at - never point when you are loaded at a person... or soemthgin like thadt. The FS was replaced due to the name controversy - simply trying not to inflict my opinions on anyone else since i don't have any standing to comment on such matters.
The thought came from some article that was published somewhere that i picked up in St. Paul sometime last April.
And thank you sir/maam for adding the reasoned analysis and comment that PS used to provide us.

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.
