Oct. 12: Bisons 3 Mutts 1

BISONS WIN MARQUEE MATCHUP


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 1
MANITOBA BISONS 3

The regular season home opener is always a grand occasion. And this year the Bisons drew a raucous crowd, spurred on by no less than the Engineering Symonized Marching Band, complete with Jet-style jerseys dating back to the 80's.

In fashion news, the Bisons wore their road brown jerseys. It is hard to read the numbers on those.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons:

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
2 Crowley - 6 Sutherland
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee
5 Christensen

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 19 Duval - 26 Macaulay
27 Feakes - 11 Henry - 29 Cain
21 Cowan - 10 Rowinski - 9 Lowry
18 Kelly - 16 Paradis

Scratches:
12 Chartier - 14 Green - 15 Scott
17 Lauder - 22 Bestland - 34 Dubyk

Saskatchewan Huskies:

Goal:
31 Holfield (30 Voth)

Defence:
4 Delahey - 22 Suer
27 Ward - 6 Hobbs
18 Thiessen - 7 Funk

Forwards:
19 Hulak - 14 Bubnick - 8 Bortis
9 Spafford - 11 Durand - 12 Kaye
24 Smuk - 20 Peddle - 25 Herrod
21 Bailey - 23 McCallum - 10 Bosch

Scratches:
1 Reekie - 13 Stebner - 15 Neigum
16 Ross - 17 Dulle - 26 Aschim
28 Carre - 32 Blanke

The Bisons were able to generate scoring chances off nice passing plays. The opening goal was scored by Blair Macaulay on a clear shot from the slot.

Sask evened the game before people had even their popcorn after the first intermission. Jimmy Bubnick knocked one home on a goalmouth scramble off a face-off in the Bison end. Although the game had a decent pace throughout, both sides were solid on defence and kept the shots down. One exception occurred when the Bisons generated a glorious chance for Ian Duval on a nice 3-way passing play which provided a wide-open net. After two periods, it was 1-1 and shots were 16-14 for the Bisons.

The third period was decidedly in favour of the Bisons. And they capitalized with two picture goals. Macaulay scored his second of the night after 4 minutes when he cashed in on a passing play with Duval and Dittmer. The game stayed that way until Duval scored an insurance marker with a minute and a half to go. He had a short breakaway and did a backhand toe-drag around Holfield and tucked it into the net.

The rematch goes Saturday at 7:00 CDT and can be seen on-line at canadawest.tv.

Even though the Evil Monkeys outshot the Newbs 42-16, it wasn't until they notched an insurance marker in the final 3 minutes of the game that the Primates could relax. The Newbs only mounted 3 shots on the Monkey goal in the 3rd period, despite trailing 2-1. Saturday's rematch will be hosted by MRU and could be seen on canadawest.tv.

In a battle of two teams who had been severely outplayed this year, it was a chance to get in a decent game. In the end, the teams went nuts on the shot clock, with the Banjo-Cats outshooting the H0rny Ones 41-38. That's double their normal totals. Lethbridge now trails Regina by 3 points, so Saturday's rematch is of importance.

This is a good results for the Tweenty-Birds. It is hard to make sense of their early results. They had one good game and win OT game against Simon Fraser and then lost once (in ot) against Regina. But last weekend they had a good road trip to Colorado, going 1-1-1. But, last year they had an edge on the Bedrock Boys until very late in the season. Calgary built a 2-0 lead before blowing it. The game was tied 2-2 with less than 4 minutes left.

Kudos to Canada West TV. I got to watch parts of all the games last night. Mainly the third for Mantioba v Sask and Calgary v UBC. Looks like UBC might have a decent chance of making the Nationals this year.

HILLBILLIES PICK UP SPLIT

MANITOBA BISONS 1

This should have been a sweep for the Herd. The Hillbillies seldom generated much pressure. But several glorious scoring chances missed the mark, and those that were on goal were (with one exception) stopped by Ryan Holfield in the Banjo-Mutts' goal.

The first period was scoreless, with the Bisons holding an 11-6 lead in shots. The margin of shots generally reflected the flow of play.

The second period generated all the goals. Mid-way through the period, Ian Duval dropped a pass to Dane Crowley at the point, only Crowley went right when the pass went left. Derek Hulak pounced on the puck and scored on the breakaway. After 17 minutes, Brennan Bosch knocked home a rebound on a goalmouth scramble. In the final minute, the Bisons pulled one back. Tyler Dittmer scored on the PP several passes after the crowd was yelling "shooooot".

My overall impression is that the Bisons are slightly better and the the Huskies are more offensive on paper than they are on the ice. The only averaged 7 shots per period over the weekend. The top contenders will have to gain as many 4-point weekends as possible against the mid-range and lower teams in the conference.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons (unchanged from Friday):

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
2 Crowley - 6 Sutherland
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

12 Chartier - 14 Green - 15 Scott
17 Lauder - 22 Bestland - 34 Dubyk

Saskatchewan Huskies:

Goal:
31 Holfield (30 Voth)

Defence:
4 Delahey - 22 Suer
6 Hobbs - 27 Ward
13 Stebner - 7 Funk

Forwards:
19 Hulak - 14 Bubnick - 8 Bortis
23 McCallum - 10 Bosch - 21 Bailey
25 Herrod - 11 Durand - 12 Kaye

Scratches:
1 Reekie - 9 Spafford - 16 Ross
18 Thiessen - 20 Peddle - 26 Aschim
28 Carre - 32 Blanke

The Bisons now play back-to-back weekends in the Town of Bedrock, first to play Mount Royal and then to play Calgary, followed by a bye week. Their next home games are November 9-10 against the Lethbridge Pronghorns.

This was an historic first win in conference play for the Royal Kittens. It was also the first loss for the Evil Monkeys (in their first conference road game) after 11 wins (8 in exhibition games). This news has to sit well with the Bisons and Banjo-Mutts. The Kittens came out quickly and took a 2-1 lead after the first period, in which they outshot the Monkeys 11-8. Then it was "hang on for dear life" time. The Monkeys outshot them 28-10 over the final two periods, in which no goals were scored. The lesson should be that road wins are never easy in the CW.

I guess the weekend sweep gives the Banjo-Cats the undisputed featherweight title. While I have documented the poor performances of these two teams thus far, one has to give the toothless inbreds credit for a sweep on the road. This was not a fluke result. They outshot the H0rny Ones 44-26. Unless Lethbridge finds a whole lotta Viagra, this is going to be a long year for them. Matt Strueby and Troy Hunter got their 3rd goals of the season and Tyler Henry had his 3rd and 4th (into an empty net). So they are getting goals from the players who need to produce.

The Dinos had to be feeling the heat in this one. The Tweety-Birds won on Friday and a sweep in the Town of Bedrock would have made the Dinos' hopes of a first place finish become a page right of history. Jacob Deserres posted his first win in the Calgary goal. However, he gave up 4 goals on 19 shots. The Dinos dominated the stats, with 33 shots of their own. UBC held a 3-1 lead in the second period before the roof caved in on them. Calgary scored 6 of the last 7 goals, including 5 unanswered.

Without time to upload a preview post, there are a few extra links in this post. The Bisons played their first of four straight games in The Town of Bedrock (they visit the Dinos next weekend) and got off to a solid start.

Her Majesty's Royal Kittens kept the game scoreless until late in the 2nd period. But after 17 minutes, and despite being outshot 22-12, MRU opened the scoring.

However, the Bisons had a four-goal outburst in storage for the 3rd period. Luke Cain, Dane Crowley, Tyler Dittmer, and Matthew Lowry notched the goals. Jesse Deckert was once again defending the Bison goal.

The matinee rematch goes Saturday at 3:00 CDT and can be seen on-line at canadawest.tv.

And what is that Crowchild Classic link about? Well, the Town of Bedrock is copying Winnipeg's Duckworth Classic multi-sport competition between the Winnipeg Wesmen and Manitoba Bisons. They will count each game between all men's and women's teams in all sports.

The teams had one goal per period in this contest where the Banjo-Mutts prevailed over the Evil Monkeys. The Feces Throwers outshot the Feces Eaters 11-4 in the 2nd period, and 10-3 in the 3rd, yet lost it. Somewhat reminiscent of last weekend's loss to MRU. This series will also feature a Saturday afternoon matinee, and may be seen on canadawest.tv.

If there was one thing I thought was obvious, it was this: the Regina Cougars absolutely stink. Yet, they now have 4 wins and a share of first place. Of course, they have yet to play Manitoba, Alberta, or Saskatchewan in regular season play.

But this win cannot be discounted. The Banjo-Cats had a slight edge in shots for each of first two periods, and scored once in each of those. Calgary outshot them 10-7 in a 3rd period where the Bedrock Boys needed a comeback. So this was not a fluky win attributable to a hot goaltender and bad luck.

This win was #100 for Tweety-Birds' coach Milan Dragicevic, which is quite a milestone. BTW, I wonder when did he have his 100th loss? The H0rny Ones don't seem to have it this year.

The link about Bieksa's Buddies is about an exhibition game played this week between locked out players and the Tweety-Birds.
Quote:
A cheque for $200,000 was presented to Canuck Place Children's Hospice, The Canucks Autism Network and The Canucks Family Education Centre before the opening faceoff. Half was raised through the game; the other half came through a matching donation from Vancouver musician Michael Buble.

“It was great,” said former Art Ross Trophy winner Daniel Sedin of the efforts to help the three groups, “and to see Michael Buble matching our $100,000 was awesome.”

“We're not playing hockey right now but we can still do a good job in the community and that is what the Vancouver Canucks are all about.”

Bears get swept/ new #1

On the heels of losing last night in Saskatoon by a 2-1 score, the Golden Bears drop their third straight game coming up on the short end of 4-3 decision today in 'Toon Town.
Alberta started the season 11-0 but have only scored five goals in the last three games.
Today, the Huskies chased Alberta starter Real Cyr who have up four goals on 10 shots.
After out-shooting the Huskies 30-16 last night, and 34-20 today the Bears don't pick up a single point as Ryan Holfield was the difference maker this weekend.
If UNB wins tonight I will have them at #1 and the Huskies at #2.
With a 3-3 Conference record the Bears can be no higher than fifth.

like i said early this week Robert, the top 35 is a real comparison of a team and their competitiveness!
you blowing smoke along with tFreddy and the boys and that baldy from MAC gill means not so much!
love to see #29 be competitive with #9 it makes for great discussions!

MRU is kind of late posting their game stories, but they do make them available for the U of M and CW sites to post at least.

Anyhow, the Bisons pumped their Feline hosts for 3 unanswered 2nd period goals, in a period in which they outshot them 14-7. Jeremy Schappert and Jesse Paradis notched their first goals of the year, and Tyler Dittmer claimed his third.

A couple of 3rd period goals allowed MRU to pull close. Oddly, there were three "interference on the goaltender" penalties. The final one (by MRU) was accompanied by a pair of 10 minute misconducts and a game misconduct.

The scratches for the Bisons were goaltender Devan Dubyk, defencemen Brock Sutherland and Darren Bestland, and forwards Brendan Rowinski, Brett Chartier, Nathan Green, and Craig Scott. Jesse Deckert went the distance in the Bison net.

This was the other matinee on Saturday afternoon. Once again, the Evil Monkeys outshot the Banjo-Mutts but could not win. The Monkeys got off to a fast start but faster than you can say "have another banana" they have amassed a three game losing streak.

Ryan Holfield in the Sask goal stopped all 15 3rd period shots from the Primates in a goal-less period.

Looking at the last two weekends, Sask went 3-1 but would likely have considered themselves lucky to be 2-2.

The Dinos could ill afford another loss to the Banjo-Cats. IN the end they won this in what appears to have been a convincing fashion. Regina held a 1-0 lead after one period. But the Bedrock Boys scored two goals in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods to claim victory. The Dinos will be the Bisons' opponent next weekend.

The H0rny Ones tightened things up considerably in game 2 of the series but, in the end, all they got was a closer-than-usual loss. The frightening thing for them is that they have yet to face one of the traditional Big Three (Manitoba, Sask, and Alberta). Then again, neither has UBC. The forecast would have to be that UBC should finish somewhere near the middle and Lethbridge should finish somewhere near the bottom.

Monday Morning Update


The Link Post has been updated by adding the Acadia fan site and updating all links to 2012-13 that had not previously been updated. It has every link you need to follow CIS hockey. If a link should be added, let me know and I will do so.


The Crowchild Classic is now reported at The Boxscore News. This is a multi-sport competition between Calgary's two universities. Also, the MRU link for Friday's game now has stories for both weekend games, rather than a separate link for each game.


A nice game story on Ryerson's debut v Queen's at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (the former Maple Leaf Gardens) is up at The CIS Blog. It is a nice story about both the game and the atmosphere.


The AUS decision to cap rosters seems no more sensible to me today than it did when announced. It is further discussed at The Halifax Herald and The CIS Blog. Not much new in the stories. The AUS says it is for "cost cutting". I guess when you get down to 15 or 16 skaters for a road trip, you can save the expense of a room.

Also, The CIS Blog has a complete AUS Preview, which has arrivals, departures, and outlooks for every AUS team. Their forecast:
1- UNB
2 - Acadia
3 - Moncton
4 - St. F-X
5 - St. Mary's
6 - UPEI
7 - St. Thomas
8 - Dalhousie

If UNB wins tonight I will have them at #1 and the Huskies at #2.
With a 3-3 Conference record the Bears can be no higher than fifth.
Bob, what's your perspective on Saskatchewan? Have they improved from the team that we saw at Nationals in Fredericton? They added Bubnick, but lost Kyle Ross.

I have no doubt of two things involving Saskatchewan.
#1. They are a stone cold mortal lock to be at Nationals...lol!
#2. History illustrates the team has challenges elevating their game at the University Cup.

There is nothing to suggest despite many seasons having one of the top teams on paper in the CIS that Saskatchewan can win it all.

Certainly back when they hosted from 1998-00 Saskatchewan was at least on par with Alberta in terms with personal, winning the Canada West in all three seasons, but ultimately watching the Golden Bears win back-to-back National Titles in 'Toon Town in '99 and '00.

In 2005 and 2006 at the University Cup IMO Saskatchewan had the second best team on paper next to host Alberta

The Huskies "spit the bit" blowing a 3-1 third period lead at Rexall Place in front of 11,000+ fans in the '05 Final eventually losing 4-3 in OT to the Golden Bears. Saskatchewan had played great to that point outscoring their opponents 9-1 thru the first eight periods of that tournament' including a dominating 3-0 victory over a very good AUS team in Moncton.

In 2006 they physically dominated Acadia knocking CIS Player of the Year Kevin Baker around, but then couldnt get past Lakehead.

In 2007 Saskatchewan vanquished Alberta in the CW Final, but left their offence at home for the University Cup.

In 2008 UNB was simply better than Saskatchewan in Moncton. The V-Reds had the best team that year at the University Cup, but the Bears would ultimately find a way that Saskatchewan never seems to find.

Last March the Huskies showed great resiliency winning the CW with Ryan Holfeld winning three OT games along the way.

Huskies then surprisingly opened the University Cup with David Reekie in goal against Moncton losing 5-1. Sure enough Holfeld got the win against eventual winner McGill.

This year's Saskatchewan team has a couple real high end CIS forwards in Derek Hulak and Kyle Bortis with lots of scoring depth.
Holfeld must have played well last week as Alberta outshot Saskatchewan significantly in both games...

But not sold Saskatchewan can get it done when it matters the most.

This weekend marks the beginning of the scheduling cross-over. Thus far, the league has had two groups playing a round-robin. The Bedrock Boys have been in with UBC, Regina, and Lethbridge. The Bisons were in with Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Mount Royal.

Calgary is of to a so-so start. They went 3-3 in pre-season, with all games against CW opponents. They swept Lethbridge (once in OT) then split with both UBC and Regina. Their lack of home webcasts makes it hard to tell just what they have to offer.

On the Bison side, this is their second trip in a row to Bedrock, after having played Mount Royal last weekend. I will be looking to see which scratches from last weekend might return to the line-up, and whether Jesse Deckert will again start both games in goal.

ELSEWHERE:

The Evil Monkeys absolutely have to break their 3 game losing streak against the H0rny Ones. In all three losses they have outshot their opponents by a wide margin. Well, Lethbridge is used to being severely outshot themselves. The conference contenders will do cartwheels if the Monkeys exit the weekend with less than 4 points.

Regina sports fans will look at this Cougars v Cougars match-up with all the fond remembrances of the Roughriders v Rough Riders games back in the day.

MRU has had a tough schedule so far, so I would not be concerned about their 1-5 start. The fact is they have put up a much better fight against good teams than Regina or Lethbridge did in the pre-season games.

But what about Regina? They looked absolutely dreadful in pre-season against the Bisons, and were also very badly outplayed against all other good teams. But they have split their games against UBC and Calgary. Have Regina improved? Did they get lucky? Or are Calgary and UBC not as close to Alberta, Sask., and Manitoba as we thought? This series will set the stage in the race for 6th place.

IMO the Banjo-Mutts have had horseshoes up every orifice so far. They needed a last-second goal to beat MRU to start and later racked up 3 wins against Manitoba and Alberta when they were outshot and fairly well dominated. But any way you slice it, this is a first place showdown. So long as neither games goes into overtime, everybody will be happy.

This was a slow news week around the CIS. Nobody was fired or suspended. The only announcement was another top 10, which is of course not as good as the OHT35. The CIS Blog does have an AUS weekly round-up and a weekend preview, linked below.

So Robert you spend a ton of time wizzing on all of CW (mostly sask huskies thank god) and never the average Bears. I realize that Rob Daum isnt at the helm at U of A any more but do the bears really have a shot? Can this new coach get it done or can I hope to see my Bisons back at nationals. They have only been there 2 times in recent memory and geez they should have got it done last year! There are two teams from CW going to be at Nationals in 2012-13 who do you see being there at this point??

Oct. 26: Bisons 4 Dinos 1

YABBA DABBA DOO! BISONS BEAT BEDROCK BOYS

The Bisons racked up their third straight victory in the Town of Bedrock on Friday night. I would like to have a bit more information, and a complete set of links, but the home sides are slow in uploading game stories tonight. Those might be up as you read, so check the team sites.

The Herd led throughout the evening, taking a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jeremy Schappert (his 2nd) within 4 minutes of Oh Canada. Second period goals by James Henry and Brendan Rowinski gave the Bisons a 3-0 heading into the 3rd period. The Dinosaurs made Jesse Deckert's shutout go extinct mid-way through the 3rd period on a two-man advantage. Tyler Feakes got 2 minutes for roughing, which was coupled with a bench minor, so I gather there was controversy about the call. In any event, that was the only goal for the Dinos. Lee Christensen scored a couple minutes later to conclude the scoring.

The goals by Henry, Rowinski, and Christensen were their 1st of the season. Schappert, Blair Macaulay, and Ian Duval each had two assists.

Scratches for the Bisons were Brock Sutherland, Brett Chartier, Nathan Green, Craig Scott, Darren Bestland, Tyler Dittmer, and Deven Dubyk.

It would appear that Rowinski took Dittmer's place on the top line with Duval and Macaulay.

The rematch goes Saturday at 6:00 MDT, 7:00 CDT.

This was the only game of the night available on CanadaWest.tv, and it wasn't much to watch. The Evil Monkeys opened the scoring on a goal by goaltender Kurtis Mucha. There was a delayed penalty and the H0rny Ones shot it into their own net. After that they went limp. They look awfully discouraged. Can they rally on home ice in the Saturday rematch? That is questionable.


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 1
REGINA COUGARS 2

The Banjo-Cats won the first ever Cat Fight. This was a tight game and a key win for the Hillbillies. They are now 3-0 against the teams with whom they expected to compete for the 6th and final playoff berth. Regina scored once in the 1st and 2nd periods before MRU made it close in the 3rd. If Regina can take the sweep on Saturday it would be getting difficult to see them being caught by MRU or Lethbridge. And, no, I don't see Regina challenging for 1st place.


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 4

This was an odd game. UBC scored twice to lead 2-0, then trailed 3-2. They rallied to take a 4-3 lead, only to lose 5-4. It is hard to glean to much from the stats. But the numbers would suggest this was a game of tremendous ebb and flow. UBC turned things around in the 2nd period when the outshot Sask 18-3 to stake themselves to a 4-3 lead heading into the 3rd period. But then the Banjo-Mutts dominated the 3rd period, with a 12-5 edge in shots. Oddly, the GWG was scored by Brennan Bosch shorthanded. One has to give UBC some chance in Saturday's rematch. They will have to win such games if they are to be seen as something better than a mid-pack team.

Oct. 27: Dinos 3 Bisons 2 (2-1 in so)

October 27, 2012

BISONS DOWNED IN FIRST SHOOT-OUT OF THE SEASON


MANITOBA BISONS 2
CALGARY DINOS 3

(in shoot-out)

Links:
|> [CIS Saturday Round-Up (to be posted)] : [CW Saturday Stories]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [U of C Story] : [reposted at U of M Story]


The Bisons built up a 2-0 3rd period lead on goals by Matthew Lowry (2nd) and Tyler Feakes (1st) but then surrendered the lead en route to a shoot-out loss. The result still gives the Bisons the series by a 3-2 margin in points, which is a respectable for a road trip to the Town of Bedrock. But when you are that close to a sweep ....

The Bisons also played short one man. Jesse Paradis played Friday but was scratched and not replaced for Saturday's game. This is a great example as to why the AUS is out to lunch with their roster limit of 21 skaters per season starting next year. Jesse Deckert once again started in the Bison goal while the Dinos replace Dustin Butler with Jacob DeSerres.

Both sides get next weekend off. Don't ask. For some reason the whole CW had an off-weekend (but for MRU and Alberta who moved their series from January 4-5), and that comes after they jump-started the league with a full slate of games September 27-29. Manitoba will the host Lethbridge and Calgary will play home-and-home with Alberta November 9-10.

This was once again the only contest available on CanadaWest.tv. Good lord, the H0rny Ones need help. Maybe time to try Cialis. Dylan Tait git the start in goal but gave up 5 goals on 20 shots before being pulled after 16 minutes. Damien Ketlo then surrendered 5 goals on 34 more shots. They look disheartened. They are also the Bisons' next opponent in two weeks' time. I am sure the Bisons would rather face them tomorrow, before they have time to regroup.

In Cat Fight II the Blue Kitties gained revenge over the Green Kitties. MRU notched 4 goals on 6 shots in the 1st period to chase Andrew Hayes from the Hillbilly net. This happened with MRU playing two men short as well. The way Lethbridge looks, it could be that the Kitties will be fighting for 6th place at the end of the year. Alberta will play home-and-home with MRU and Calgary over thext two weekends.

So, it looks like UBC is as they normally are. A sweep of Lethbridge, splits with Regina and Calgary, and a sweep at the hands of Sask. That list of results could have been from any one of the last 15 years. These teams also get a week off, after which UBC will face MRU and Sask will play Regina as aforesaid.

The Evil Monkeys scored twice per period en route to a handy win over the Royal Kittens. This is the only series in the CW for some reason. These teams evidently switched their series to this weekend from the beginning of January when the remainder of the teams will play their corresponding series. Since this series is being played out of synch with the rest of the schedule, this is the last series between these teams. Whilst MRU falls to 2-7, after this weekend they have only four games left against the top three teams (two against Sask and two against Manitoba).

NEWS:


The only news coming from the CIS was the Top Ten. It is strange. Sask is #1 and Alberta is #2. Oddly, Toronto is #9, I recommend the OHT35 for better rankings.
Links: [CIS] : [reposted at CW] : [OHT35]


The Vancouver Sun has an article touting UBC (amongst others) as a hockey alternative during the lockout.
Quote:
On the UBC campus, T-Bird coach Milan Dragicevic has noticed a definite lockout boost, much of it due to the exposure the ‘Birds received from the Bieksa Buddies charity game Oct. 17. They played before a full house of 5,000 that night and, two days later, about 1,000 came back to see UBC’s home opener against the Lethbridge Pronghorns.

“Last year, we averaged close to 500 fans a game and this year we’re averaging close to 900 so it’s a pretty big increase and that’s very positive,” Dragicevic noted. “The Bieksa game helped a lot. It opened up people’s eyes to how good CIS hockey is and how good UBC hockey really is. All our guys were stars at the junior level, whether it was in the WHL, BCHL, or AJHL.

“So many people who come watch a game always say they want to come back,” added the UBC coach. “It’s just a matter of getting them to make that initial visit. We’ve definitely noticed we’re getting more exposure because of the Bieska Buddies game and the fact the Canucks are skating with us.”

The Globe and Mail (Toronto's national newspaper!) has a rather rosy story on the Blahs entitled "Glory days here again for UofT Varsity Blues?" Now, it is nice that they have some wins. But here's their record, which I say is so-so, and not even top 20:

You know you were out of it when ... Even if you scored on every shot you took in the 3rd period you still would have lost.

That's what happened to the Her Majesty's Kittens Saturday in Edmontown. The Evil Monkeys scored 5 goals in the first period, and only one more per period thereafter. MRU surrendered meekly, with only 4 shots in the 3nd period and 3 more in the 3rd.

Were MRU that bad, or the Monkeys that good? Well, next week the Monkeys play home-and-home with Calgary whilst MRU hosts UBC.

OUT EAST:

Moncton 0 Acadia 4 : [CIS boxscore]
St. Thomas 0 Dalhousie 2 : [CIS boxscore]
Saint Mary’s 4 New Brunswick 3 : [CIS boxscore]
St. Francis Xavier 2 UPEI 3 (ot) : [CIS boxscore]
Guelph 3 Concordia 0 : [CIS boxscore]
Brock 4 UQTR 6 : [CIS boxscore]
Lakehead 5 Carleton 4 : [CIS boxscore]
York 4 Ottawa 3 (ot) : [CIS boxscore]

Western Ontario 5 Ryerson 3 : [CIS boxscore]
UOIT 4 RMC 3 (ot) : [CIS boxscore]
Nipissing 3 Queen’s 2 (ot) : [CIS boxscore]
Windsor 3 Toronto 1 : [CIS boxscore]

"Are The Golden Bears Back"

I went to the Golden Bears game against Mount Royal Satuday night.
It was total domination.
Ian Herbers has the requisite buy-in from his players that has been absent from the program the last several years.
The numbers speak for themselves.
The Bears have outscored their opponents 49-19 through 10 games.
They are actually better than the 7-3 record indicates, as they have badly outshot their opponents in three one-goal losses; including both games in Saskatoon against the #1 ranked Huskies.
If you focus on the "process" instead of the "results" the Bears are clearly headed in the right direction.
IMO Alberta is getting close to being back to where it was in 2004-05 in Rob Daum's last season before heading to the AHL.
Eric Thurston inherited Rob's team and Rob's recruits in August of 2005 (goaltender Aaron Sorochan and offensive center Dylan Stanley) and won National titles in 2006 and 2008.
Eric is a nice guy and from afar his record was pretty good- 2 National Titles/5 Conference Titles in 6 years-but the Bears have been in decline for several seasons.
Ian Herbers has changed that...in a hurry.
The Bears are not a big team nor are they overly gifted upfront, but they are tenacious, relentless and committed.
The biggest surprise has to be ACAC-transfer Torrie Dyck.
Dyck is the only Bears forward in their top 12 who did not play in the WHL but he has added some skill and finesse, and is playing like a man trying to prove that he belongs on every shift.
So for that matter are all the other Bears.
This is a total contrast to the self-entitled attitude of SOME of the Golden Bears players in the last five years.
I am not talking about the top end guys like Derek Ryan (who is leading the Austrian League in scoring) or Chad Klassen, Eric Hunter or Jesse Gimblett (who in fairness Thurston helped to make a better player)...but moreso the soft 3rd and 4th liners who were exposed a couple of seasons ago when New Brunswick rolled into and over Alberta in Edmonton.
Huge weekend coming up with a home-and-home with the Calgary Dinos.
Can't wait for the Huskies visit to Edmonton in early January.

Well Mike and I. U know your hockey. Herbers and Marsh are two of the Bears top 5 D of all time (Randy Gregg, Cory Cross, Serge Lajoie, Dion Zukiwsky, Mike Garrow, Jeff Zorn, Harlan Anderson and Kyle Fecho)in the mix.
Calgary has big, physical team which lacks depth at forward.

Zukiwsky was the top defenceman in the Canada West in 99-00...played 4 seasons at Alberta won 2 CIS Championships...A smooth puck moving D.
Combined with Marsh and Garrow to give the Golden Bears a heckuva a top three in '99 and '00.
Zukiwsky was also a pretty good Regina Pat as well who had solid 20 year-old #'s in the 'Dub.
