I hope. I love going to games, but I would love it more if the place was a little more enthusiastic. I have to admit, Old Pio, various disputes aside, I suspect that going to a game with you would be a lot of fun!

Have they announced a new assistant coach yet? If not, does anyone have any idea where they might be looking or leaning?

Think dg or mike chambers reported they were talking to the assistant coach, Lassonde, from New Hampshire. He was supposed to be visiting Denver this week.

....on the Minnesota Wild. This is Zucker's last year! I am so looking forward to getting him out of Denver ASAP.

He's really something special. And we're expecting a monster season from him. Apart from his offensive skills, quick first step, hard accurate shot, great vision, etc, what impresses me about his game is his willingness to knock your dik in the dirt. Not a good idea to take liberties with him.

Perfect, get him in a Wild sweater ASAP!

Pro Camp again this year at DU.
http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/2011/08/11/avalanche-guys-and-du-boys-will-again-get-together-for-pro-camp/7760/ (Guess I'll have to start reading the Avs blog too since Chambers is covering them this year.)

Think most of the Pios should be back in Denver by then so they will get a chance to scrimmage with the pros once the DU coaches leave the ice.

Shouldn't captains' practices begin soon?

BTW there are 49 days (7 weeks) until DU's next game.

Stumbled across this item about WIERCIOCH. I somehow sense the author has a problem with his attitude or ego.


When the Senators selected defenseman Patrick Wiercioch in the second round of the 2008 entry draft, they knew he wouldn't be playing in the NHL for a while. While he wasn't ready to play in Ottawa, his first year in Binghamton didn't go as well as hoped.

he decided that the NHL was an offensive, controlled style that fit his game more than the AHL did
More likely, Wiercioch will be back in Binghamton, where he'll be asked to assume a large, offensive role from the team's blue line.
http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/teams/ott/report

Ottawa has 6 D-men on one way contracts plus 1st rounder Jared Cowen (1" taller and almost 40 lbs. heavier) and another d-man prospect, David Runblad, ranked ahead of him. (He had one of the worst +/- numbers in Binghamton last year.) Hope his ego doesn't out pace his performance.

USHR reporting that David Lassonde is the new DU Assistant Coach replacing Derek Lalonde. His expertise is goaltending and defense.

PioneerVision's fall schedule does not include hockey. Other than exhibitions (which I would watch:)) the only 2 home games are Oct. 21 & 22 against Minnesota State. A couple of years ago PV did get a feed from Tech (10/27 & 28). I'd watch that too.:) November is when the home games really begin including the Denver Cup,

Wishful thinking--DU vs BC and DU vs BU Oct 14 and 15.

Okay, I admit it.
>I'm ready to see more than 3 freshmen listed on the DU roster.
Further I'm ready to see new player pictures, rather it be frosh or Seniors, who are still using first year pictures.
>I'm ready to hear about the current Pioneers scrimmaging against the pros at the hockey.
camp.
>I'm ready for captains' practices to begin.
>I'm ready to hear Quentin Shore has committed to DU. (And that Drew, Nick and Quentin will all be playing for the Pioneers in 2012-13.)!!!
>I'm ready to hear the frosh exceed expectations!
>I'm ready to hear Sam Brittain's rehab is way ahead of schedule.
>I'm ready to see the WCHA Pre-Season poll.
>I'm ready for Puck Swami to start posting again.
