Again, are we trying to win or not just stay in the first division. Injured players will only set us back.

So you would prefer a guy that has more skill than someone with a little less and size?

Not trying to bash your pick because I think he's one of the most skilled on the ice. Just wondering.

Absolutely, if you are asking who will have a larger impact on USAH's outcome I can almost assure you that it will be RG.

Is Brady Skjei playing for Minnesota tonight?? I don't see him on the box score, if he's not playing is it injury or scratched?

Kerdiles should've been playing today like it's do or die.

He was NOT phoning it in. He just didn't register points.

Lucia looked pretty solid tonight.

I have to believe he is a lock at this point..

I didn't say he phoned it in, but from the tweets and posts I've seen he didn't exactly give it 100%

He grew as the game progressed, but he was very quiet in the first, then the second he just started hitting people. He and Zengerle both looked like guys who were just getting back on the ice. You could see stuff there, but it was just a bit off. The Badgers as a whole look like that this season. The offense is a running joke.

Skjei was a healthy scratch tonight. Minnesota's blueline is pretty stacked but this certainly won't help his chances of making the team.

I thought he was factor for most of the game, just not the sort that will get him on the team. Lack of effort isn't a criticism I'd levy at him.

Gaudreau and Gillies battled one another to a tie tonight. Gaudreau with 2 points. 3-3 final score.

I don't think it was necessarily a lack of effort, but he wasn't very impactful in the first. Then again, nobody was, at all. Second and especially the third the Badgers dominated and he was a factor in that.

They look pretty thin up front, like they're trying to turn four forwards into a top 9.

Ive watched most Plymouth Whalers games and Hartman is impressing me more every week. Only knock is he takes a lot of penalties but that's the style he plays and he knows how to get under players skin. Not to mention his scoring touch, if he ever didn't make it this year I think he is a for sure lock next year. I believe he will climb in the NHL draft rankings as well

There is no explanation for it. They didn't lose any good forwards. The only player that left was Schultz.

He's been really good this year, but that play was an absolute killer. Probably shouldn't delve too much into it since his play overall has been big. I mostly thought it was interesting because Pietila scored.

Random funny story but I confused the Pietilas on Michigan Tech and for the first period I couldn't figure out why the hell they called in Pietila because he was having a terrible game. Then I realized Blake was #19.

Yeah, not what you want heading into camp.

Matteau was back in action tonight after leaving his last game with a neck injury.
