    A is for apple... shorten to app, apps assist. But, a bushel of apps? So confused, app-arently. Better than a bushel of ass-ists. 

    I feel like the milk jug thing is being undersold by Baxter. I mean, you had me at commemorative stickers. Is there a sticker station?

    Why do I feel like Jon and Jason are going to have a 'female dog' fight before this is over?

    It's Tuesday afternoon. But yes, it's 9:00. So Jon gets partial credit.

    The Mavericks are giving up too many short-handed chances.

    Post-goal letdowns. That was a problem under Blais, too. Kemp did always harp about this in the locker room. The shift after a goal, first minute, final minute of periods.

    It used to be 'the all-important two-goal lead'. Not sure when it changed, but it has.

    The more penalties Omaha takes, the more I think it is a product of being a 'meat and potatoes', griding team. I think it is just more of being in that position, on that edge.

    Denver was a dumpster fire on the PP against the Whioux.

    Saville has been good, above average, not quite great. He's certainly keeping us in games more than Weninger had. He's still raw. I'd like to see him control rebounds better. He does have the mental edge over WMU's Bussi. But I would like to see Isaiah pick up a couple shutouts -- but those are earned by the team.

    You guys and the Roden train. He's going to get his chances, but the team is playing well in front of Saville. No reason for a change, right now. Roden will get his chances (see: Arizona State, Maine, North Dakota). I would like to see 'Rodes' get at least one other game before then. Do you force a start against Miami? Do you wait for Saville to falter? These are the decisions Gabinet is paid for.

    Pairwise is what makes hockey fantastic. I like the direct comparables. But, yes - wins are important. JUST WIN. You can't find your way into the tournament before Christmas, but you can find your way out of it.

    Conley.

    Five-point game, Jon.

    Lesson from Conley: Like Nogard, put yourself in a position to succeed. Skill will only get you so far. Sense completes it.

    Primeau has been good of late. Sundberg picked up an assist on Friday, but he does so much system-wise that doesn't show up in the box score.

    If I'm any of the forwards -- seeing how this team played without Jordan -- I realize I'm not indispensable. Pulkkinen has already sat a game. Jordan sat, even though it was suspension. Weiss sat a game. (I think Brushett is next.)

    You're never safe, Jon.

    Seriously, Jon? How have you never heard it? It's been around. I don't understand it, either. But it's been a thing.

    NERD!

    I might pay for Jon's education on slang... and the sound of his eyes rolling.

    I would like a couple slang explanations -- mostly by broadcasters: half boards...  ...and then there are terms people use to dumb down the game: house (it's the slot), puck drop (it's FACEOFF!).

    Snipe has more to do with shot placement.

    Three assists is known as a 'playmaker'. USA Hockey used to give awards for playmakers, just like hat tricks.

    Recruiting budget: gotta pay for all DNB's trips to Quebec. Or was he just recruiting when he went home?

    Jason is a milk jug virgin.

    Jon, we get it. You're up past your bedtime. Have a Sprite.

    Did I just get called a troll?

    Miami has always played better at home in Ricoville. Duluth has been bad. I'm not sure I'm buying Miami as improved.

    Pick a sweep. Predict that Roden scores a goal on Saturday. Assume at some point we're going to be concerned that someone might get a fighting major.

    Miami lacks the firepower. They lack goaltending. Get to Larkin early. Pound away with shots. There is no such thing as a bad shot against Larking and Miami (OF OHIO).

    What kind of apples do you like, Jon -- Fuji? Pink Lady? Granny Smith?

    The stickers are sitting in stacks by the milk jugs. Here is one of the stickers sitting on the top of my 2014 MacBook Pro (to give you a sense of scale... and because “apples” seem to be on everyone’s mind). ;-)

    Jon: more educational material for you.

    How has it taken you 22 years to learn some of this?

    Common jargon isn’t lost on me. Familiar terms like hat trick, goon, enforcer, and dangle (as examples) are all commonly used. 

    Part of the reason I haven’t heard the term “apple” (used to refer to an “assist”) could stem from the fact that I watch very little hockey on TV.

    We are cord cutters, and haven’t had a cable/satellite subscription for about 5 years. The hockey I do watch on TV is primarily college — some of the folks broadcasting collegiate games aren’t terribly well-versed in the sport (unlike NHL color/play-by-play personalities). 

    Part of the issue is that there just isn’t a lot of hockey on TV.  

    Some of the people on this message board — and on Twitter — grew up in places where hockey is much more popular. Some of them also played the sport (and continue to play/officiate games). 

    I’m a fan, and make no apologies about that fact. 

    Hockey isn’t terribly familiar in Omaha, NE. As a result, many of the fans tend to be more neophyte in nature. 

    You grow up in Nebraska, you’re going to get bombarded with football coverage . I grew up as a football fan. Not only that, most of the football fans in this state tend to experience the sport via TV broadcast (as I did). 

    When I attended Omaha Lancer hockey games in the early 90s ... and once UNO Hockey started in 1997 ... I watched hockey in person, without “play-by-play” or “commentary.”

    Nearly all of my hockey viewing experiences come from watching the sport “live and in person.” 

    Since I’m watching games (in person) in Omaha, NE, it’s not like “apple” is a term used to describe anything other than a piece of fruit — or a brand of computer.

    MavPuck.com turns 20 this January. In its heyday (before Facebook and Twitter were things) the site was a very popular place for discussion.

    I can honestly say I never saw someone post (in like 40,000 posts over 20 years) the term apple to refer to an assist on the old message board.
