We can kick it off with Pee On Swami Day and wrap it up with a punch your favorite player’s grandma contest. :p

Make sure you get Old Pio and his frat bros involved. I want to see this thing done right. Do you think Mike Talliaferro will be available to make a guest appearance? :rolleyes:

Per an article in American Junior Hockey News about alumni.


Chris Nutini has signed not only a contract with the Reading Royals of the ECHL, but also a tryout deal (PTO) with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch.

Rock hurt his knee last night in Calgary. Donovan had a lot of ice time. Isles basically played their Bridgeport team against Calgary.


Defenseman Matt Donovan was much more comfortable in his second exhibition game, and he led all Islanders defensemen in time-on-ice (23:28). His four shots made up nearly a third of the team’s shots on net, and he added three blocked shots.

“I felt a little bit better and a lot less nervous than the game against Boston,” Donovan said.

Disappointed with the loss, he said, “We just couldn’t burry the chances that we had.”

I might try to make it to that game. If not, though, I will poke my head into the scoring thread.

the fact that they missed Blood from that list is a big oversight... hopefully other teams don't pay attention to him as well.

I don't know enough about the players that are listed there, to compare them to our DU guys. But I think we have 3 defensemen that are "worthy of watching" in Makowski, Ryder and Mayfield.

I can't believe no one has put together a "best hits" video compilation for Ryder. That guy CONSISTENTLY puts out some of the best (and legal) hits that I have ever seen from a DU defenseman.

CBS Sports Network to televise @DU_Hockey at Boston College on Friday, Oct. 14. Puck drop changed to 5:35pm MT.

Also all home games not on Root Sports will be streamed live on Pioneer Vision except for the 2/10 game against Minnesota and the 2/24 game against UND. My guess is that these 2 games will be broadcast nationally and will be announced in the future.

We must be getting close. I just got a call from Crown Royal wanting to know if they should resume deliveries.

Holy Crap! I had no idea about any of this regarding Swami. I just assumed he was taking the summer off from the boards. I would consider him the most respected DU poster, if not the most respected overall poster, on the boards. Very sorry to be missing his insight and knowledge on here. I hope he comes back.

We have been watching the Colorado Eagles news and they have signed a lot of players, but not Kevin Ulanski or Matt Glasser. Anyone have any idea where they are headed? At least we have Maiani to watch in Loveland... I read on Elite Prospects that Glasser signed with Eaters Geleen in Netherlands.
