FWIW, Adam Murray is doing the promos for this weekend's series against UMD.

Does this mean he's not dressing for the game?

Please to explain!!!

They have a different player each week doing the promo spot. Nothing to read into that.
Today is basketball media day so no Gwoz on the press conference. His radio show is on tonight at 5:45 MT on PioneerVision. Make that 6:15. CU football comes first:eek:

The $1.3 million will be raised from donations. No tuition dollars will be used.

DU hockey will lose some home games and had to juggle some non-conference contracts in order to free up Magness for 10-11 days.

Just so 2 political blowhards can argue with each other and say how they'll help us...as if they actually will.

Republican/Democrat....neither of them really give a **** about us. Its all about power and more money...

I'd at least like one of em to buy me dinner...I like to have a nice dinner before I get *******ED! :D

There's that. And the loss of revenue from those lost home games. And the loss of home advantage, too. What if the games we lose are against UND or CC or God forbid MTU and we have to go back up there again? Would the "national exposure" be worth it then?

FWIW, I don't believe this will change any WCHA games. It will probably change up the exhibition game, and whatever the first non-conference series is. WCHA play usually doesn't start until the second weekend in October.

Prospects from hf boards

10/31/11

Denver's Jason Zucker has quickly become a very talked-about prospect after a highly impressive freshman year that saw him named NCAA Rookie of the Year. Zucker has excellent speed, an excellent release, and a knack for elevating his game. He has shown well in international tournaments too, with three gold medals to his name. Skill aside, Zucker is also a very effective at stirring the pot.

10/30/11

Rhett Rakhshani caught some bad luck during the preseason and sustained a concussion. This is bad news because his size and durability have been questioned throughout his career. He was competing for a spot with the Islanders when the injury occurred. Due to the injury he has yet to appear in a game so far this season. He is expected to be out for a significant time period. If he can return to form, this diminutive forward can pack a serious scoring punch and has proved everyone wrong his whole career. He has proved himself in the AHL, he just needs to do the same when he gets his chance with the Islanders.
Matt Donovan is another big defensemen with a lot of promise. He had a brief stint with the Tigers last season after finishing a tremendous year at Denver University. In his six games last season he sparked a lot of excitement recording five points in those games. This year he is having a little trouble settling in and getting used to the professional game. There is no doubt he has the size, but he must improve his foot speed to be effective in the NHL. Once he does this, he will become a top six defensemen for the Islanders.
The Islanders do have one high-ranking defensive prospect that is not currently playing at the professional level. That player is Scott Mayfield who is currently a freshman at Denver University. Mayfield is a project, but has a ton of upside. The Islanders were very lucky to have him fall to them in the second round of the 2011 draft. At 6'4 he has great height, but needs to further fill out his 200 pound frame. For his height, he has quick feet and is very mobile. In a few years he could develop into an all-situation, top-four defenseman.


10/29/11

There will be four defensemen in the NCAA representing the Canadiens this season, Josiah Didier, Scott Kishel, Greg Pateryn, Mac Bennett. Didier was drafted in the fourth round, 97th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and shortly after, agreed to start his freshman year at the University of Denver this season.

It would be marginally better if true. But Dubbie's right.

Per Chambers, looks like both goalies will get a start this weekend.
“We got a goaltending controversy. We’re like the Broncos!” Gwozdecky joked. “They might rotate, yeah.” Bennett's cut has healed but he lacks strength in his wrist. He will be a game day decision. Knowlton out of "Chateau Bow Wow" and will be playing this weekend. Gwoz not sure if he will stay with 7D and 11 forwards or use 6 D and 12 forwards this weekend.

FYI, alumni hockey game is Saturday at 11AM at Magness. Former DU goaltenders Danny King and Josh Rosenholtz have indicated they will be in goal and ready to jump start their playing careers!

Former DU D-Man Bob Young selected as #25 of Top 100 Minnesota HS players by Star Tribune. Former DU goalie Pete LoPresti was #93. I would expect Bob Krieger to be coming up at some point.

Noticed there was a Bob Paradise on the list, #69. Do you think he is uncle or father of DU's Chris Paradise? They are both from St. Paul.

I understand that. But I'm thinking the Bulldogs are the ones who need to be nervous.
