    Well glad to hear the team has special baggage arrangements. When I walked into the O'Hare terminal at 5 20 this morning CST, there were three lines for security, each over 300 ft long.
    The chances are everything went fine, however what happens is that the baggage system is set up for the average day and with the overflow of bags, the system gets overwhelmed. Plus they do not hire extra help and so the guys doing it fall behind a little more every hour thru the day. The lost bag rate on these high use days I believe is significantly over the rate on an average day. It helps not to make a connection however.
    I also notice the forecast for 8- 12 inches of snow for watertown, ny today.

    Nice to see Ben hitting his stride....he's the best player to come out of Calumet since Gordie Frantti and I was starting to worry about his chances in the major juniors.
    Try Mike Usitalo.

    He's only 20 something games in and they've been happy with his defensive play; little early to start worrying about his chances when they likely have plans for him to be there three years.

    And once you're on Calumet, you probably heard Erkilla is back from Marquette and is playing for CHS this year. Also likely Tech will be watching both Storm (switching back to forward this year) and Jacques this year as Pearson noticed both in the finals last year; Jacques apparently already has an offer of some sort from NMU- his dad has a suite at MTU (Center Ice S & S).

    Happy Thanksgiving Tech fans! It's been a fun year so far!

    Edit: And for anyone that missed it there's a 4 min video on the Michigan Tech Hockey facebook, posted on Tuesday, showing the team traveling to Alaska and some of their activities before the games.

    Some good tweets by Stephen Anderson this morning:

    Nielson is on trip to St. Lawrence, Heinonen heads home

    Nielson may not play til Saturday

    Forwardl lines likely same as Saturday

    A. Pietila and T. Gubb on the trip, allowed to bring 24 on a non-conference tirp during a break

    Robinson in net Friday, he's emerging as number 1

    Shirtless, another good linkorama on Tech Hockey Guide.

    One correction, the Mel Pearson show is on Mondays and your link is to the Nov 21 show (I see someone made the same mistake in the media player with the date) and it's 8:45ET each week.

    While the Darkness is not in anyway overlooking the fine players at St. Lawrence, The Darkness is ready for tUMD.

    The Monster thought that everybody had agreed that it was too early yet to start UMD-MTU week yet??

    The Darkness does not care what others think. He is just really looking forward to seeing his Huskies in person in Houghton for the first time in almost two years.

    So apparently the team no longer uses the skating treadmill due to the high number of groin injuries the past few seasons.

    Yeah, good news about Erkkila....he's an amazingly fast skater and can turn on a dime. Still, I think a year in juniors is really needed to tell if a HS player will develop. Lots of amazing local HS hockey talent has failed to pan out in D1 and major junior....it's always risky going straight out of HS. Hopefully, more CHS players will start to look at MTU if Mel keeps the program moving in the right direction. CHS players have been choosing NMU over Tech for decades now.

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they were over training and skimping on the stretching..
