    Those sue fans ruin everything.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    the beginning reminds me of the '04-'05 season when we were up in GF and split. We didn't get it done the first game, but came back with a big game from the Irmenator, Ryan and I think some other guy helped out a little too. Barry had a huge goal early in the first too.

    Did you crash the net for a goal?

    Did anyone notice the pretty stat that collegehockeynews had in their awful rankings in Goon's thread? Read it again.

    6. Minnesota: A usual NCAA postseason staple, the Gophers fell short of expectations last season, but if their late-season run showed anything, it was that they'd be back with a vengeance in 2009-10. They lose top scorer Ryan Stoa to the pro ranks, but return Jordan Schroeder, who excelled as a freshman, and Jay Bariball on a deep offense that will be complemented by a defense led by Cade Fairchild and Aaron Ness, both of whom matured nicely as the roller coaster season continued. The biggest piece of the puzzle will be seeing which Alex Kangas shows up in net -- the one who gave up 42 goals in a 12 game mid-season stretch, or the one who allowed just 19 over the final nine matches of the season.
    Alex has what should be a much better defensive core this year.............

    The "College Hockey News Poll" explanation makes no mention of any potential impact new recruits may have, four of which were drafted fairly high in the NHL draft. It makes no mention of senior leadership which has been largely lacking in recent seasons. As you pointed out, it makes no mention of a stronger defense compared to last year. Poorly done. They could at least spell Jay Barriball's name right .

    One scout quoted in The Hockey News regarding Seth Helgeson: "He plays the game like a warrior. He has an edge and some touch with the puck. He has size and grit. He's a guy who's going to be difficult to play against at whatever level he plays."

    Edit: I think we will see more of the talent Kangas displayed as a freshmen this coming season.

    I am excited to see him play, sounds like he will bring an element to MN's game that has been recently absent.

    The wonder of this years frosh class is that all (4) of them bring something that is going to be exciting to watch.

    Leddy's offense and skill carrying the puck.
    Helgeson's size, grit, and toughness.
    Budish's power forwardness.......boy, is that going to be fun to see for a change. A power forward that likes to play in front of the net.
    Birkholz's speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed.

    There's no fluff or fold in this years recruits.

    My guess is Grant Potulny will have a lot to say as a coach about playing in front of the net this season. He was good at it.

    Taylor Matson says surgery made his injured knee stronger than the other one! He'll be a force to reckon with this season.

    Here's to hoping they have Kangas night again at they Ralph.... can't wait to see the Sioux expose him for the swiss cheese that he really is. Anyone want to bet how many times he gets pulled that weekend?

    Given the Sue's well deserved reputation as cheap shot artists, I'll guess it will equal the number of Suesie penalties.

    So UND will only have two penalties? Or is Lucia going to pull Kangas once a period, so UND will have six penalties?

    Is that before or after the 6 five hole goals the Gophers put up on the Sioux goaltenders?

    No need to get your wife's panties in a twist, Scooby. I was just questioning our friend's logic. If the Sioux are such goons, how will their penalties only equal the number of times Kangas is pulled? Logically Alexis can only be pulled twice in a weekend.

    You should know by now that logic has no place here.

    In reality, he can be pulled for an addition player during a delayed penalty.

    Next time I'll draw you a picture.
