Well that sucks, congrats to the Gophers. Schmidt and Ness will be a nice pair of d men for them.

I heard that Lucia told him he would be gone by the time Schmidt enrolled, so Schmidt committed.

Nice pickup for the Gophers. I guess Coach Lucia has found his recruiting touch again.

I'm a St. Cloud State fan and even I think that pioneerman sounds like a bumbling idiot.

It's a shame only the bad Gopher fans are remembered on this blog considering outstanding ass-hattery of other WCHA program's fans.

While it's true CC and DU are almost a lock to finish 1,2 the rest of the places are still very much up in the air. UND, UMD, MTU, SCSU and the Gophers are all within a game or two of .500. And four points seperate 3rd place from 7th. Even UW and MSU M are one point out of seventh.

Maybe the Gophers won't make the top five. As a Denver fan you should know all about sitting at home since you did it last year. Who upset you guys again?
