and I just looked. I have BC in the Random draw. Rabbits foot up my woohoo I guess. Tough to be pulling for both the Gophers to land the trophy and then BC for the sands at the same time.. I'm so conflicted..

You've got enough sands, cheer for the Gophers :wink:

That's the difference between Wisconson and North Dakota... we would never even consider rooting for Minny. We hate BC, but its a different level with the Gophers... I want to see their tears as BC skates off the ice victorious.

The Wild sign Zucker today. He will be playing on Thursday

JT Brown soon to go pro. According to Bucci: Philly, Tampa Bay, and Boston are the finalists.

Personally I've always been a 'conference guy' with all sports. Easy to separate any amount of disdain for a particular team/school. WCHA and Big10 alike.. I'd rather the Champions come from within the conference.. helps the conference(s) and the schools out financially, too.

Never put you in the typical UND mold.. as a group/whole I've never seen such toolish behavior from a fan base in my life.. ever :lol:

I'm really hoping Justin Schultz decides to stick around for his senior year.. we've lost too many skaters early to the NHL the last couple years and we're young and suffering from it.

We are the Philly of College Hockey...

I tend to root against whatever team knocked my team out, whoever that might be, whatever sport that might be. When it's a rival... it's more so. I have seen that behavior as well, it's not something I support, but I certainly won't root for Minnesota either!

I put the probability of Schultz coming back for a senior year at about 0.3%

He just doesn't want to go to Anaheim, waiting until he's a FA to sign anywhere he wants.

Maybe he'll want to come play for the Wild :lol: :lol: :lol:
