I'm encouraged by the weekend at Duluth- and really impressed that the "d" corps is finally big and won't get pushed around like they have in years past. And it was a long summer, not seeing Helgeson crush somebody! Hockey's back!
This year's crop of freshmen is certainly impressive- Rau looks like he's been playing at this level for years. Everyone keeps saying he's an undersized guy, but he doesn't seem that small to me. Next to Bjugstad, maybe.....
Excited to have Budish back- Rau-Bjugstad-Budish is a scary good line. Do we really think Nick's gonna stay after this year? He's a monster. Just wish he could learn to win faceoffs more regularly.
And Condon's off to a surprising offensive start. Not one of the top guys you'd expect, but nice to have his contributions.
Wish Alt would pick it up a bit. Sophomore slump?
At least Patterson didn't give up as many juicy rebounds as Reiter- he looked terrible (Reiter) the whole weekend. That was the guy who backstopped a national championship?

p.s. wish the Bruins had a PP QB like Nate Schmidt- Gophs PP tops in NCAA or close to it. En fuego!
