It's going to be a great buildong to watch hockey.I can see down the road where the state hockey tourney will move there from the RALPH and finally making the Grand Forks schools leave there own backyard.
The Force should put a decent product on the ice considering they got some veterans from the Ohio team that folded.
What future Huskies are on the team Rabid?

Wow looks like it is a really nice arena!

Mike Lee (G-Roseau), Bryce Ravndalen (F-Warroad), and Nick Oliver (F-Roseau). Oliver is doing a before and after with Fargo.

Fargo has a very young squad, but Blais is an amazing coach.

I figured Dakota would know that, since we got them all from "Sioux Territory." ;)

This could be a real exciting team to watch, really no pressure for them first year, I just hope the FM comes out in support. I went to a lot of FM Jets games (yes i know the NAHL is a lower level) and the support was sad. Crappy arena though too.

Ryan 08-22-2008 08:30 AM

Fargo has a lot of very young and inexperienced players. I think they will have a slow start, but could be a team to watch as the season progresses. I'm also interested to see how Lee adjusts to the higher competition level.

I think they have sold over 2,000? season tickets, so they should be in good shape. I hope the 3rd time is the charm for the USHL in Fargo.

Crappy arena is right.Now when I played in it back in the late 70's it was considered nice but nowadays it's considered a dump.Attendance should be great the first year despite what their record may be.I know they are scheduling all home games when the SIOUX are not playing in the RALPH.That will help a ton.

Check out their mascot...almost as bad as their logo.

When they kick your Lincoln boys arse you will think otherwise.;)

Rabid Husky 08-23-2008 05:38 PM

It does kind of look like a mentally challenged kid. I wonder why they felt they needed a mascot with a name like Force.

I gotta admit that is one terrible looking mascot but I don't go to games because of some dude in a hot suit.The Force may struggle a bit to start out but they will be okay.With Blaise behind the bench I can guarantee you one thing they will be very physical just like the Fighting Sioux were when he coached them.Strap it on tight because they will be comin at ya.

Leo W 08-23-2008 08:20 PM

Steel ftw, my brother played for them this year. Cunti, Miele, and Weber are absolutely amazing.

Tyler Bruggeman to Fargo

That gives them 3 goalies with Lee and Campbell already on the roster.

ForceFanNJ 08-27-2008 03:22 PM

New players on Roster?
 
Started at 25, then to 26 yesterday, now up to 30. Fills allowable limit. Who are the new people??? Futures? Looks like there's going to be some pearing down on the Forward line to get to the 23 limit by October.

All these guys showing up for camp next week??? :shakehead

Ryan 08-27-2008 06:23 PM

It looks to me like the 3 Ohio vets cut were placed back on the roster (Stewart, Cseter, Michalke). I don't know what the deal is with that.

Having played against Blais when he was a coach and watching him coach the FIGHTING SIOUX for years he has a method to his madness.In the end he will have the best team he can muster up on the ice.I know one thing the goalies who don't start in a particular game better be ready from the drop of the puck.He likes to play musical chairs once in awhile at least he did with the SIOUX.

Dakota Sioux 09-14-2008 11:03 AM

Force played their first exibition game in Moorhead,Mn. last nite and lost to Sioux Falls Stampede 5-2.Force did outshoot them but fell victim to goals with 8 seconds to go in the first and second period.The game was standing room only which doesn't surprise me.

ForceFanNJ 09-16-2008 06:02 AM

And your assessment

What was your assessment of the players you saw - good and bad? What big areas do they have to work on?

Fargo has one of my boys, Gehrett Sargis. I watched him his junior and senior year of high school. Great kid.
