What jumps out at you about this lineup?
Do Lindgren and Novak recover from their injuries?
Does Nanne get playing time at defense?

Schierhorn has had 2 very good, and at times, unbelievable seasons. I look for him to be huge this year. He's a little underrated for how good he is.

Hoping for the best as far as Novak and Lindgren go. Coming back from serious injury is tough at this level. The Gophs really need them back strong.

Same for Nanne. I hope he gets a chance to shine for the Maroon and Gold.

Freshmen who can impact early- Mittlestadt and McMannus are 2 that stand out for me. Casey is going to be good at every level. He is just that kind of player. McMannus was key for the Steel winning the USHL Championship. Gotta like that.

With guys like Bristedt and Pittlick and Gates the Gophers should be able to put up some goals. If someone can step up and anchor the point on the PP these guys will be fun to watch. They always have some firepower but it looks like quite a lot, at least on paper, this year.

Looking forward to the season.

Lots of views, but very few comments. Come on folks, lets hear ya!

The Don is really branching out with this squad. A Swede, Canuck, Alaskan, Cali, and a couple of Michigan boys. He's also heavily recruiting the Shattuck kids with six on this team.

Comments?

Not sure if I am on the right forum, but looking at the seniors that graduated this year I have yet to find out where Taylor Cammarata ended up at. I know he was given a amateur tryout with the Islanders, but from there I cannot find anything. Anyone have any info?

Grandpa is going to have to pull out all the strings to get grandkid playing time.

The fact that he's even on the team is a joke.

So never underestimate the power of the Lou Rolling Eyes

Looking at the schedule I noticed that it only shows radio coverage for the Gophers/ North Dakota series in Grand Forks in October.

I hope that means it is undecided which tv network will be covering it. I already gave up on the NFL. I'd hate to quit following hockey too.

Seriously though, how can that series not be on TV?

The little bit I followed on the internet seemed to have Mittlestadt out there with Reedy and Bristedt. Not sure how much of the game was that way though.

Now I see that the Gopher series at Grand Forks is on Midco TV. That channel is viewed in North and South Dakota as well as NW Minnesota. I find it hard to believe that the series wouldn't warrant a little more geographic coverage.

That is up to the folks at Fox Sports North. Completely their decision. They could even opt to take the Midco Feed if they wanted.

I can't imagine that they wouldn't want to show that series. It's like Packers/ Vikings. Is Midco affiliated with FSN?

I heard its out of FSN's hands. Both Duluth's MY9 (games last weekend) and Midco (ND series) won't let them have access to it.

Then they wonder why the fans lose interest. There was nothing but bitching and moaning for 5 years because that series was interrupted and now that the Gophers are going to Grand Forks very few in the hockey world will have access to it.

The media in this country isn't as important as they think. You would figure they would be starting to catch on to that.

Gophers looked good, but got outplayed by number 11 ranked Penn State. Just wondering why there were all the open seats? is interest in Men's Gopher hockey dying❓ No Vikings, Twins, Lynx, Wild, or FC United to compete against tonight. Maybe Gopher faithful are just waiting for Sunday's game to support their team.

Agree that the Gophers looked okay at times last night. Mittlestadt is a huge difference maker already. I doubt he is a college player next year. Bristedt's penalty was a back breaker. I noticed a ton of empty seats also. Not sure if that is typical mid October or not.

They were lucky if they had 5,000 people in the building on Sunday. Interest in Gopher men's hockey has definitely dropped.

Comments on the game:

Nanne scares the crap out of me in the defensive zone. He wanders all over the place with no regard to position.

Mittelstadt is the real deal. The kid has hands and vision like no others. The Don is going to get as much out of him as he can, in his one year of college hockey. He played a regular shift on top of PP and PK.

The future is bright if players stay. The senior class is by far the weakest of the group. Of course, I didn't get to see Bristedt due to his suspension.

Based on attendance decline, I think the U needs to make a change at the top. Sorry Don, but its time to go.
