So, how exactly does shining work for dead Deer?

Are there rules or something? :confused: They don't have to be dead.

It's like zero outside right now. Dead is not a good thing on a night like this...

Shining + creeping up behind + a little ether...

how about your DU player that called one of the Huskies a N*? where was the outrage?
the DU players trashing the hotel in Houghton? outrage?

have some Royal Crown, settle down and watch the Gophers beat you tonight.

Maybe some night, Your Royal Insignificance, but not this night!

What kind of dangerous actions has Rau committed outside of this hit that would deserve any payback by "enemies"?

I think he's referring more about Rau running his mouth and being chippy. Garrett Roe wasn't a dirty player, but he sure made a number of enemies in the WCHA and college hockey. A lot of fans like that type of player, but remember that that means that player is already walking (skating) a thin line, and hits like this Friday's may push people's opinions of them over the edge.

Now to be fair, I am NOT saying this is truth, just reporting what I heard, but word on the street is that Blood went after Rau because at the end of the game, Rau made some comment about Blood's mentally handicapped sister. Again, I do not know if there is ANY truth to that, I don't even know if Blood has a sister, let alone if she's mentally handicapped, I just know that that's what some circles are saying.


Yeah except our players aren't made of glass like Zucker and can take a hit.

Wait, remember when Finley tried to start a fight with Wheeler in the handshake line? I remember some sioux fans saying that wheeler had made fun of finley's handicapped sibling and that's why Joe did that. Sorry, just really don't believe this story again. I think some fans like to make up some horrible backstory so that there is maybe a justification for starting a handshake line fight.

Rau hasn't been hitting like this. Does he chirp? sure. Just like Zucker was busy chirping friday night too. Chirping doens't mean you're a punk, or deserve to be kicked out of the league as some fans seem to be implying.

Okay, so now the punk's age is relevant. Maybe somebody ought to keep a list of these paramaters for criticizing him. "No one is defending?" Seriously? What the h*ll are you doing?

get off your high horse guy. zucker is a "punk" too then right?

Hadn't heard the Finley story. I never said it was credible and now I pretty much am certain its a recycled urban myth. But to be fair, the UND fans are green so recycling is understandable.

You obviously don't know tennis, that makes one point so its 15-love.

First, who cares if Zucker tomahawked the kid, doesn't excuse what Rau did. Second Zucker contacted his head, true, but it wasn't late, it wasn't charging and I am guessing it wasn't specifically targeting the kid, he just happened to be the guy with the puck at his feet.

And then there was the time somebody from DU cross checked Lou Nanne and left him looking as ugly as a mud duck. What about that? How does any previous incident justify or excuse your gutless little punk? "He doesn't have a reputation." "He works with the homeless" "He's an outstanding student" "He's an Eagle Scout." "He's only 18" You guys have all the mitigating circumstances printed on laminated cards. Even so, you're whistling in the wind. He did what he did. And you can't wish it away or argue it away. I should think anyone wanting to be considered an adult would just admit it. What he did was wrong. And there should be no place for it in college hockey. It's as simple as that. Notwithstanding your enthusiastic efforts to get him off the hook here, most of you know it.

It would certainly make a difference if he were a notorious head hunter, which he evidently isn't. But at the end of the day, all of that is irrelevant in judging this incident.

Oh, and getting your Gopher butts whacked, twice, probably put some of you in a bad mood and impacted your otherwise sound judgement.

What Rau did was wrong, but to permanently label him a punk/thug/etc is ridiculous. If he continues to make hits like this, sure, let's revisit. He made a mistake, he paid for it, move on.

Agreed. He is a scrappy player who made a really stupid move. Nothing more.

I haven't claimed, nor do I want, the power to "permanently label" anyone, let alone this punk. As far as "moving on" is concerned, I would suggest you and the rest of the Gopher Jonestowners take your own advice.

It was more than stupid. It was over the line. But the Gopher dead enders just can't seem to admit it. Why, the boy helps old ladies cross the street and gives to the MDA telethon. How dare you say anything bad about him?

You know, you're usually the voice of reason. But you're dead wrong. And your last post is childishness on steroids. JZ was the one whose season could have ended, not Rau's. Zucker's no more of a goon than your guy. But somehow it's just not in you to admit what Rau did was wrong. And you continue to defend your punk by attacking others, including the victim of his cheap shot. Try that the next time you're in traffic court. "But other guys were speeding faster than me." It oughta work.

My eyesight is fine, thank you Dr. Are these dimwits who've been defending that punk (and still are) NOT Gopher fans?
