Gophs won their exhibition 7-0 last night. And no goals from our big guns! (Bjugstad, Haula, Rau). That is a good sign.

Christian Isaackson is a name that most people don't know, but I think you will after this year, he had an OK freshman year, and I think he's ready to have a big year. Especially if he plays with Bjugstad and Rau like he did last night.

Mike Reilley is going to be a player. tDon has compared him to Alex Goligoski, and I definitely think Reilley has potential to be a stud offensive defenseman like Goli was. Silky smooth.

Bring on the Spartans!

Yeah, not the way you want to start off the season. That one will probably hurt in the PWR later this year.

Gophers killed Michigan St. on Saturday night as well. 17/19 skaters recorded at least one point, and 9 different players scored goals this weekend. Tough to not be very excited about this season. We have 3 legitimate scoring lines, and the defense looked very good.

Both Mike Reilly and Brady Skjei are going to be elite level defensemen if they stay in college for a few years.

And (old) new Gopher PBP guy Doug McLeod is awesome! So much better than the previous PBP guy.

Hear about the UW freshman that got suspended for the whole year? Kerdiles?

I would assume he will bolt and go play major juniors. Too bad, sounded like he was a pretty good player.

Waddayamean? We'll be in the WCHA next year! Truly last season of the CCHA though :(

I thought I'd better check in since it looks like we won't be making noise like we did last year!
