    The toughest pick is St. Cloud and UMD.  both teams extremely evenly matched.

    St. Cloud and Duluth might still be playing as we are all headed to St. Paul.

    First off would like to express gratitude and appreciation for the team and the fans (even you twitter folks) who gave me a great deal of joy over the last few months. 

    unfortunately the mavs are now 2-15 all time in NCHC games and the streak of not getting past the first round continues.   -- pretty incredible that this team has not seen the second round since 2001. 

    I thought the mavs played very tentative after they were up 3-1 on saturday.  seemed like they were playing to not loose instead of continuing the aggressive play.

    big roster turnover next year and you have to be extremely disappointed in the lost opportunity.  will be interesting now that the team is composed almost entirely of gabinet recruits starting next year.

    anyway: hope to see some of you next week in st. paul.  We will be in section 106 row 18 seats 1-4.  staying at the hampton inn downtown.   if anyone wants to meet up fell free to buzz me four zero two six five zero zero nine seven two.

    NCHC semis:  in the early game I like UMD.   they finally have a full roster and I expect noah cates to have a monster game.  I'm picking them over DU.

    UND and Western:  one can only hope the roof collapses during that one.  UND has done very well with spare parts.  Picking them over Western.

    I'm going to stick with UND to win the NCHC.

    AHA: Have to figure AIC is the favorite

    ECAC is a hot mess:  someone other than Quinnipiac could steal a bid.   If there is a team that can possibly do it it's possible that cornell can do it.

    Hockey east may only get one or two teams in with Lowell and Northeastern squarely on the bubble. -- if there are some upsets in the ecac and the ccha that's gonna move the cut line to 13.

    Bemidji could steal a spot if they beat minnesota state.   Michigan Tech should still be safe though.

    to all who post here and everywhere else plus the team:  thanks again for another year.  -- hope to get angry/excited/hopeful etc etc next year.   and as always thanks to the folks that run this board that allow me to post my ramblings....

    Agreed, and there was some of that on Friday as well. About next year, my concern is “where are the goals going to come from. We have one, maybe two, top six forwards. It’s feeling real 2017 to me right now…

    I noticed it, as well. It wasn't a bad idea... if it had worked. The concern was that continuing to play at that intensity would've left nothing in the tank for a potential Game Three. Western could have afforded to shut things down and been OK. Omaha gambled and lost -- needed to first get to Game Three, then figure out what to do about fatigue.

    Pretty sure I tweeted that out, last night, too.

    I'll be interested to see what you think of my overly-worded breakdown of the roster: who is in, who is out. But I have the same concern. We're losing our Top 5 forwards potentially.

    Fortunately (?) the two departing defensemen are 3/4 on the depth chart, and one of them is being replaced by a pair of players I think are marginally better.

    Quinn has a good point. Now is when the excuses start running out on Gabinet, or at least his era will be defined (because I don't think he should or will be fired any time soon). Do we challenge for a spot among the elites, or do we fall into the 15-25 range when we are simply challenging for PWR position?

    Overly worded breakdown? Did I miss it?

    Hello from St. Paul! hope everyone made it!

    Saw the news that austin Roden entered the portal -- really too bad I think he was at least as good as saville this year.

    some of my twitter fans have decided to take a break -- sad.
