It's on top of the hill.

edit:

I assume that UMD will have to rebuild the D corps again this year after Mikey, Samberg, and maybe Scotty leave. Wolffy doesn't seem to get any NHL interest, so maybe he'll be the C next year. Perunovich might stay one more to put on weight, but if the Blues ask I'm sure he'll go.

Our forward group loses a ton of leadership that will be tough to replace. That said, unless Noah Cates and Swaney bolt the forward lines should be very productive. Reinforcements for forward on on the way. If you hate watching UMD grind your team into a fine dust in the corners you will absolutely hate Luke Loheit. The 19 class will be better than 18, and I loving love the 18 forward class.

If we can win another Natty before 2021 I will be ecstatic. Because in 2021 we get Blake Biondi and Jack Smith, and those guys are going to break college hockey for 2 or 3 years.

edit2: Tufte is gone. Brady Meyer is his replacement as Big Guy From Northern Suburbs Who Scored A Lot in Highschool.

True enough.

If we lose guys like Mikey, Samberg, Wolff, and Perunovich, we have some good players in the pipeline like Quinn Olson, William Francis, and Darian Gotz who could all get called in. Ideally they'd have some more time to develop before we need them, but on the other hand if next year ended up largely burned due to developing new players, the 2020 season could be lit.

Not that guys like Samberg and Anderson can really be replaced. Those two are good as gently caress at both ends and should have solid NHL careers.

As long as you get to play SCSU or MSU in the first round you will never truly be an embarrassment. A couple Husky fans at my office say they are most disappointed they didn't get to play UMD in the Championship, but deep down they gotta know we would have broken their hearts again.

In other news, UMD Stores ordered some of these for folks who need to complete their collections

Samberg, Wolff, and Shepard are all staying for 19-20. We lost Mikey and that stings bad, but if Perunovich stays and Roehl can step up we should be ok. The 2nd defensive pairing will lose production, because Roehl is absolutely not on Mikey's level, but he's still good.

A three-peat is absolutely on the table. UND and Denver should be good, SCSU will probably look way different even if they don't suck, UMass will definitely suck and maybe Providence.

most of the WCHA is fed up with the distant teams of the WCHA

BGSU posted:

Seven prominent NCAA Division I men's hockey playing institutions have announced the exploration of a new Division I men's hockey conference that would begin play with the 2021-2022 season. The seven institutions include: Bemidji State University; Bowling Green State University; Ferris State University; Lake Superior State University; Michigan Technological University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; and Northern Michigan University.

The group is comprised of institutions rich in history and tradition with a strong commitment to academic and athletic excellence. They are like-minded in their goals and aspirations for the potential new league with a focus on improving regional alignment and the overall student-athlete experience while building natural rivalries within a more compact geographic footprint.

The potential new conference is also committed to providing the best possible collegiate hockey experience for its student-athletes, fans, and all stakeholders. Finally, the group would plan to establish itself as an elite hockey conference that would have the highest standards for overall competitiveness and rigorous non-conference scheduling, along with a level of institutional investment that demonstrates significant commitment to their hockey programs and facilities, while also establishing relationships with corporate partners and others that create a high degree of visibility and positive media exposure for the league.

As current members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) men's league, the schools have independently submitted formal Letters of Notice to the conference office, initiating the withdrawal process in accordance with WCHA Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. The institutions will continue to play in the WCHA during the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.

The seven institutions have engaged Dr. Morris Kurtz, a long-time athletics administrator and noted athletics and hockey consultant, to serve as spokesperson and to assist them as the group sets out to transform the college hockey landscape.

During these initial stages of developing the potential new conference there will be no further comment from these institutions, including Presidents, Athletic Directors, and Coaches. Media inquiries should be directed to Dr. Kurtz.

Not great for college hockey overall but obviously smart for the 7. I think you could keep Alabama Huntsville. But I get not wanting Alaska's teams.

gently caress Notre Dame.

UMD is adding some absolute killers to a forward group that is already loving stacked. Probably gonna be a hilarious year. The forwards that graduated all had pretty important roles, so that's the variable at play. Mackay was a big-game player like Kuhlman; Krieger dominated faceoffs through the tournament; and Exell was always making the right plays and some big ones too.

The Dogs didn't lose all the players I assumed they would. Samberg, Scotty, and Shep returning is nuts. Replacing Mikey is going to be extremely tough.

I'm guessing they stayed because taking another run at a championship is guaranteed to be way more fun than getting buried on the depth chart and missing the playoffs for the Albany River Rats or whatever. Zach Parise left UND the year before they went to a title game. Instead of playing for a championship with his brother, he got to ride around on a bus for one of the shittiest teams in the AHL.

Notre Dame hate is by no means extraordinary in NCAA Hockey. Rivalry is central to fandom.

My two favorite teams are North Dakota and whoever's playing Minnesota.

They're an easy school to hate for all kinds of reasons. Picture the general loathing for teams like the Dallas Cowboys, NY Yankees, LA Lakers, etc.

DARK INFERNO ROOK!


Notre Dame/Ohio State hate is mostly imported from football because outside of a very few schools football is a way bigger deal than hockey. Pretty much the only teams with hockey specific rivalries are the ones that don't play D1 football and whoever their rivals are.
